I live in Manila, the Philippines. I am a former director of the National Chess Federation of the Philippines. Used to be rated at 2200. Just retired from my chemistry and engineering career but just 'unretired' from chess! Alekhine, Von der Lasa ,Em Lasker , Petrosian, Nimzovich, Simagin and Nezhmetdinov are my favorites. Update June 4 2013 : Oops!! I forgot to mention Boleslavsly, Larsen , and Botvinnik. My apologies. Also Duncan Suttles, Lawrence Day and the Canadian Rat Pack. Raymond Keene who put into print the tenets of the Ultramodern School of the aforementioned in his classic ' The Modern Defence '. and Richard Neville Coles for his work on 'Dynamic Chess' . The British Chess literary giants are my favorite authors.

KlingonBorgTatar: I haven't been around for quite some time in following theory. What is the status of the Polugaevsky today? Has it been refuted? A friend told me so some years ago.

   Jan-30-17 Averbakh vs Spassky, 1961 (replies)
KlingonBorgTatar: Was Averbakh in time trouble hereabouts? For a while he seemed to be winning. He tore apart Spassky's Paulsen Defense early on.
