Hello everybody. My name is Alfonso and I am from Spain. Some of my favourite players are Fischer, Capablanca, Alekhine, Morphy and the Romantics (Mac Donnell, Labourdonnais, Anderssen, Pillsbury), Lasker, Rubinstein, Nimzovitch, Reti (and the Hypermodernists), Botvinnik (and the Soviet School). I like also Karpov. (I don't mean to suggest that Kasparov is not a good player. I learnt to play chess at eleven, in 1984. When Karpov and Kasparov played in my country in 1987, I used to support Karpov.) You can add to the list Anand and Carlsen. In short, I like: -Romantic players.
- Positional games à la Capablanca, Karpov or Petrosian. -Ficher is my favourite player, and then possibly come Botvinnik, Capablanca, and the aforementioned. -Tal: I like him too. He was maybe apart from the "official" Russian School, so to say. It is for something he was called the Magician of Riga!

Llera: Whith this name, he must be a brainiac! ("a highly intelligent person": )
   Jan-06-23 Derek Geoffrey Horseman
Llera: He must have been a good horse rider! (aka knight player...)
   Jan-02-23 B Andonov vs I Ivanov, 1981 (replies)
Llera: <fredthebear> Thanks, there was a mistake when I entered the game in Chessbase. I wrote down the 18th move as 18...RD8 instead of 18...RF8. I did not download the game from chessgames because I copied it from New In Chess Yearbook 1986, and it was a subvariant from the main game
   Dec-16-22 Richard A Bates
Llera: Is he the brother of Norman Bates?
   Dec-10-22 Alekseev vs E Bukhman, 1961
Llera: There must be an error in the name of White player (who played a very good game, including a final Queen sacrifice!) because when he played this game he was five years old!!!!!!!
   Nov-29-22 Elena Fatalibekova
Llera: Playing with her must be fatal, she must be a femme fatale...
   Nov-27-22 Adams vs Morozevich, 1993
Llera: <Poisonpawns> <"It seems Adams should have been better">. I disagree. 6.cxd5? Nb4! and White is practically Lost. 11.Be2?? Qe4: White loses a piece: The Rook or the Bishop.
   Nov-10-22 J Gerschwiler vs Salzmann, 1965
Llera: And yes, I know Jussupow lives in Germany since 1993 and his actual nationality is German. Maybe his actual transliteration of his surname is according to German rules of ortography.

   Sep-05-22 Beliavsky vs Portisch, 1991 (replies)
Llera: There must be a misteke in Informant 52: If 32...Qd4?, then 33.Kh2 Rxf1? 34.Qxf8 Bg8 35.Ra8 and White wins. Source: Josif Dorfman in French magazine "Europe Échecs" nº 395, November 1991 (page 44). That's J.Dorfman's analysis, but if we go a couple moves more we can see Black is ...
