Marcelo Bruno
Member since Jun-25-06
I live in Brasília, Brazil's federative capital, where I work at a public school. Music and chess are some of my greatest loves, although I like each field of the knowledge. My interest is to get more and more old chess games (I mean old until the earliest beginning of the 20th cenury); I use to play in the same style of the players from this period and consider that their games are my main source of inspiration. I also have experience on giving chess classes at schools in Brasília. Full Member

Marcelo Bruno: Perhaps Gossip had his best performance at this event.
   Dec-08-21 Arved Heinrichsen (replies)

   Aug-22-21 Ulf Andersson
Marcelo Bruno: I took part at one of his two simuls in Brasília: I was the last to end my game against him (he won doing his 61st move with the White pieces and after that seemed to be completely exhausted). After 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 I replied to him with 2. … d5: it was an epic battle that ...
   Aug-22-21 Smyslov vs H C van Riemsdijk, 1990

   Jul-24-21 Karl Mayet (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: According to Juan Fernández-Rúa, in his "La edad de oro del ajedrez" (The golden age of chess) we don't know the most of Mayet's victories because he wasn't used to annotate them.
