I play on the ICC and Chessworld under this name. My otb rating in both blitz and slow chess are around 1700 to 1800. I am from New York City and have been seriously playing for about eight years. I am mostly an intuitive positional player who studied Morphy to death, so my won games look like the were player like the great one. I also use Short's openings and style, but that would not be a cool name.

   Dec-26-09 P K Wells vs I Ibragimov, 2000 (replies)
Morphystyle: In Rowson's 7 deadly chess sins, this game is from perfectionism. In short, White tries hard to punish black and in doing so, spends lots of time and gets stuck in punishment mode looking almost solely at mating combos. Move 15, is the turning point where white loses the thread.

Morphystyle: In Rowson's book, he says "Short's notes in Informator just gives 44...c4! 45 bxc4 bxc4 46 Na4 Rd3 and black is winning" in not Na4 ...c3 wins the knight.

Morphystyle: Guys, perhaps I did not see previous analysis, but why doesn't anybody vote for 30...Rc8, a classic sicilian idea of b4? Fruit and Toga like the idea with quick evals.

Morphystyle: Amazing game, so I ran this through Toga II out of curiousity and black is basically lost after 9...f5 which is the first out of book move. It thinks White played this perfect and had only 2 improvements for black which both lose. It gave white a +3 score throughout most of the ...
   Feb-26-08 Kramnik vs Svidler, 2004 (replies)
Morphystyle: At 30 sec per move, Rybka gives Rab8 17. Ke2 Bb6 18. Be3 Rxb7 19. Bxb7 Nd4 20. Bxd4 Bxd4. (-.11/17 depth) With a rook each, opposite bishops and an even amount of pawns per side...this is an easy draw.

Morphystyle: Nasruddin Hodja: There is no refutation of your old line above, but it simply leads to a cramped position for black With queens, plus his queenside pawn structure is weak in most variations (10 Re1 is stronger). The more in fashion variation trades the queens making white ...
   Aug-30-07 Rybka vs Ehlvest, 2007 (replies)
Morphystyle: I remember Ehlvest saying somewhere that the problem with having a pawn missing on the kingside is that it is difficult for black to be able to castle queenside with most openings, therefore white has an attacking advantage in games like this.

Morphystyle: A severe reprimand...this is something you give to somebody under 18. Topolav or his manager cannot act out of line for 12 months. If he gets to challenge the winner of Mexico, when do you think he will want the match scheduled...ugh. He should at least pay from Kramnik's legal ...
   Aug-01-07 Van Wely vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
Morphystyle: For those of your who like computer comparisons. At the moment 48.. Rybka gives Kd6 -.13. Toga has Kd6 with +.31 and Shredder has +1.73 Kd6 and Spike has +.53 at about 30 sec each.
   Jul-19-07 French Defense (C00) (replies)
Morphystyle: Timeline - I totally agree. If white plays 3 e5 c5, then black can use the piece placement I listed above and get a great game. I don't play the french, but arrive from 1.e4 c5 2.nc3 e6 3.f5 d5. This way white has a harder time reinforcing his center with c3. My king usually ...
