i am from Canada, 16 years old. Play chess seriously enough, tournaments and on computer. My favourite player is the great Viktor Korchnoi, who sadly and unfairly never became wrold champion, although he had more than earnt it.i alays start 1.c4 as white and play french or sicilian as black. Except Korchnoi, i always like Mihail Botvinnik and Jose Raul Capablanca

   KrokoKorchnoi has kibitzed 38 times to chessgames   [more...]

KrokoKorchnoi: <chessgames>: how was this game won by white? i don't see a forced win
   Jul-21-03 Geller vs Novotelnov, 1949 (replies)
KrokoKorchnoi: Geller was a young man back then, prone to firy attacks, especiially against weaker ones, such as Novotelnov, whom he apparently underestimated

KrokoKorchnoi: This game was thoroughly analyzed and harshly criticized (thats his way :)) by Siegbert Tarrasch in his "Book of chess strategy"

KrokoKorchnoi: Marnoff: There is a big difference between worshipping a man and worshipping his achievements. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with praising Fischer's wonderful chess (which truly was wonderful) but it is absolutely senseless to be an attorney to someone who has done or ...

KrokoKorchnoi: yes, this gambit in Slav defence is originally invented by E. Geller and A. Tolush, and was used with great success by Geller. The strongest player Geller defeated using this gambit was if i am not mistaken, Wolfgang Unzicker. Feel free to correct me though. :)

KrokoKorchnoi: as Cyphelium correctly pointed f5 wins the bishop, with or without Qf1

KrokoKorchnoi: I do not know another player that at age over 70 was/is able to produce chef-d'oeuvres of unmatched complexity, force and elegance - and that against strong grandmasters

KrokoKorchnoi: i really badly need a refutation of this dubious gambit! :( Please help!
   Jun-12-03 Efim Geller (replies)
KrokoKorchnoi: From what i know, the strongest recognized players of 20th century never to become world champions were: Korchnoi, Geller, Larsen, Gligorich, Keres, Bronstein, Schlechter and Reshevsky. Bronstein actually was within fingertips from the title, he lead 12-11 in his match against

KrokoKorchnoi: i would be quite obliged to anyone who would provide a convincing refuting line against the so-called halloweenattack. There must be something, otherwise the ancient four knight's game is dog food
