I live in Prague (Czech republic). I don't play rating chess - only practical (and kibitzing :-)... )

My most favourite are players from old romantic chess period (Morphy, Anderssen, Chigorin, Janowski, Bogoljubov, Spielmann, Duras)

   Mar-16-12 K Baranov vs N Grigoriev, 1919 (replies)
Lopin: Pretty surprising queen sacrifice. But - what if white stays ice cold and tries: 26. ♖h3 (to activate the rook and prepare to cover f1) [DIAGRAM] Game will continue:26... ♗xf1 (26... ♖xf1+ leads to same positions) 27.♖xe1 ♖xe1 28. ♕d2 (only chance)
   Apr-13-09 Smirnov vs Ulanov, 1955
Lopin: ...13.d6 Rf8+ 14.Nf7 Rxf7+ 15.Bxf7 Be2+ 16.Kg1 Qe1# 0-1
   Mar-04-04 Estrin vs Jiri Nun, 1965 (replies)
Lopin: Nope. 16.Qxd2 Qf6+ 17.Ke3 (forced - otherwise queen is lost) Qf4+ 18.Kd3 Bf5 mate.

Lopin: Ernst Rojahn was probably playing black pieces...

Lopin: The best is hidden behind the scenes. Try this game's final combination for yourself...
   Oct-26-03 Glukharev vs V Murakhveri, 1969
Lopin: 10. ...Be7 11.Bxe7 Qxe7 12.Nxd4 0-0-0 and black is OK.
   Jun-07-03 Keres vs Smyslov, 1953 (replies)
Lopin: I think the solution after 19. - gxh5 is: 20. Qxh5 Re8 21. a4 I) 21. - dxc4 22. Qxh7+ Kf8 Ba3+ Re7 24. Rg3 II) 21. - Qd6 22. c5 a) 22. - bxc5 23. Qh6 Bg7 24. Qxh7+ Kf8 25. dxc5 b) 22. - Qd8 23. c6 Rxc6 24. Ba3 Rd6 25. Qh6 Bxd4 26. Bd3 c) 22. - Qf4 23. Rf3 Qg5 24. Rg3 All ...

Lopin: <> I didn't mean book "Wizard from Riga", but the person of Mikhail Tal, who told the journalists this game is the best of his simul games ( I have to attend some language course... :-)). Recording of this game (including year 1969-but it could be wrong, of course.
   May-27-03 J Reinisch vs Traxler, 1890 (replies)
Lopin: Traxler's gambit is extremely fierce opening, that interested theorists for years. It's "dancing on the razor blade" for both sides - black have to make breakthrough or die in material disadvantage. The best continuation on 5. Nxf7...variant is probably 6. Kf1..., but the truth is, ...
