What a nice surprise you are reading this. Welcome! Iím Sicco Reeskamp and member since 2005 (although the system thinks otherwise). Although my chess rating has not been above the 1600 yet, I really can appreciate a good game. Many chess icons inspire me, e.g Capablanca, Lasker, Alekhine, Euwe, Fischer, Spassky, Karpov, Korchnoi and Kasparov. And this site has brought many other great players under my intention, e.g. Zuckertort, Gulko, Larsen or Short. My favourite chess teacher is by far Simon Williams, I love his dvds. But Akobian and Seirawan are great internet teachers as well. By the way, Iím Dutch. And live nearby Amsterdam. And as the biggest chance is that you are American, we have a connection, did you know? Being the founders of New York, words as dollar ( daalder), boss (baas), yankee (Jan Kees), the capitalistic financial system and the tolerance of religion stems from Amsterdam (please read Shortoís highly recommended book 'Amsterdam'). So you might have guessed it already, history is a passion of mine. And now back to the chess games, cheers!

OrangeTulip: 4,400 games by Korchnoi in the database. Is this a record?
 
   Nov-10-19 Anand vs Le Quang Liem, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: Impressive blitz games by Le Quang Liem! He defeats a whole row of top 10 players. Would he have been able to defeat Carlsen as well in these shape?
 
   Nov-03-19 Petrosian vs Lutikov, 1961 (replies)
 
OrangeTulip: Lovely English game against c6 by Petrosian
 
   Nov-03-19 Anand vs M Gurevich, 1991
 
OrangeTulip: Good Pirc by Gurevich!
 
   Oct-30-19 F Vallejo Pons vs L'Ami, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: Interesting fight! Although 400 years the dutch won these kind of battles against the spanish ennemy:)
 
   Oct-30-19 Vitiugov vs E Can, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: Intriguing game. Black manages to get white's bisshop but in return is forced to give his Rook. And loses despite a pawn extra
 
   Oct-30-19 Marc Andria Maurizzi vs Shirov, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: Nice finish by Shirov; white has a few minor backrank issues
 
   Oct-29-19 Miles vs L Bronstein, 1977
 
OrangeTulip: Not every stone is gold
 
   Oct-28-19 Ivanchuk vs L Lenic, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: nice tactics to end the game by Ivanchuk
 
   Oct-28-19 I Papaioannou vs A Giri, 2019
 
OrangeTulip: White's 25th move Nd6 does not seem to be a good one
