Love the game of chess and hence I'm here, the players games that always bring a smile are the master pieces of Morphy, then Capablanca and Fischer. So many other players I enjoy Kasparov, Carlsen, Anand etc... Today I mostly cheer for Nakamura perhaps because he is one of the few top players I have watched play OTB, he also has a distinctive style. Add to this I'm rooting for other fellow compatriot Fabiano Caruana who appears to be the next best after Magnus.

Beyond and above chess I'm a bible believing Christian and love God's word. I'm very thankful for my 5 children and lovely wife too. I have at times lead an interesting life traveling around the world aboard the USS Missouri. Later getting a heavy fix of adrenaline repossesing cars and things of that sort.

   Jan-21-20 Tata Steel Masters (2020) (replies)
Jambow: <jphamlore: To me Carlsen's play versus Firouzja is worthy of a standing ovation afterwards. This type of purposeful sustained maneuvering is as beautiful as any sacrifice.> By far the best game of Tata thus far from my chair...
   Jan-21-20 A Firouzja vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
Jambow: <offramp: When you get to play a game with the world champion you can play doggedly for a draw or you can really make the most of the opportunity and play proper chess. Alireza decided to make a fight out of it. He went down but he tried his best.> Much appreciated by me...
   Jan-14-20 W So vs A Firouzja, 2020 (replies)
Jambow: I would say that from move 25.Qd3 Wesley has started to work towards his end game plan with two Bishops vs Bishop and knight with his king being more active. His follow up play was precise getting his passer next to his king free while his dark square bishop stops blacks passer. This
   Jan-13-20 A Firouzja vs V Artemiev, 2020 (replies)
Jambow: Seems like Firouzja gained the advantage at 17Ne3 when Artemiev kept his light squared bishop on f5... I think simply retreating g6 or h7 keeps things pretty much on par. Of course all that was calculated with my shallow patzer engine in blitz mode...
   Jan-12-20 J Xiong vs J van Foreest, 2020
Jambow: Xiong looks very much at home in open tactical positions his calculations are impressive.
   Jan-12-20 Adorjan vs G Glatt, 1982 (replies)
Jambow: Missed the initial deflection let alone the impressive sequence that followed... Nice combination to observe...
   Jan-12-20 Motylev vs Bareev, 2005 (replies)
Jambow: On second thought <An Englishman> I'm sure the middle game is probably what you had in mind...
   Jan-08-20 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Jambow: <Sally Simpson> This is more common than you think...
   Jan-05-20 Kamsky vs E Romanov, 2012 (replies)
Jambow: <spingo: Kamsky is such a famous legend.> As opposed to those unsung legends... ;0] Great game by Kamsky he was indeed a creative player that produced some gems like this Petrosianesque one.
   Jan-05-20 Grob vs Tartakower, 1937
Jambow: Tug, push, pull, slide, squeeze, reduce, rinse repeat... Instructive game against the witmaster... While I'm usually on the receiving end of this cycle the satisfaction of being the giver is not to be underestimated.
