HolyKnight
Member since Sep-24-04 · Last seen Jan-12-13
I started playing in USCF around Fisher Spasky match of 72. My ultimate goal one day is to get 2201+ rating and retire. I love playing the French as black and it is by far my favorite opening. I have the hardest time playing with the white pieces for I hate to go into a positions I don't know anything about. Right now I play 1.Nf3 as white and go into Slavs, Reti, English, and Kings Indian. I might pick up Queens Gambit 5.Bf4 line soon.

I live in Long Beach, CA and at one time I was Long Beach's High School Champion of Chess.

HolyKnight: <Al Wazir> in the 1950s Milk Men could buy a nice small house and support a small family. All this guy did was drive a truck and bring milk to people's houses. My how far we have come! Now people with master degrees who are in their 50s beg for jobs! Technology has killed ...

HolyKnight: With 10 games in this data base with the French Tarrasch Defense he is 9 draws and 1 win. Now many of his opponents were lower rated then him. But I still found that very interesting.

HolyKnight: Hey Magnus do this, 6 vs 0 victory over Taimanov 6 vs 0 victory over Larsen 6 1/2 vs 2 1/2 over Petrosian That's a world champion. Not some win a tournament and one match after that.

HolyKnight: This is interesting how this starts as an English Opening and then the position looks like a closed Benoni.
 
   Sep-19-11 L Christiansen vs R Hess, 2011 (replies)
 
HolyKnight: This line is on Roman's DvD on the Bogo. He talks about white losing a pawn.

HolyKnight: Good try Gata.

HolyKnight: Next game should be interesting. Svidler and Gata are both Grunfeld Experts. Go Gata, get him!

HolyKnight: Every thing I have read about Kramnik, he just sounds like a very nice man. I wonder even if you were a lowly C player he would answer a question you asked him. I bet he would.
 
   May-24-11 Grischuk vs Gelfand, 2011 (replies)
 
HolyKnight: All but one of white's pawns are on a black square. If more pieces get exchanged off that bishop might go yum yum.
 
   May-22-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
 
HolyKnight: I think Gelfand chickened out. If you have black and a good position, go for the win. If you do win the match is probably over in this format.
