Orcinus
Member since Jan-11-04
I am from New York State. No rating. I am fond of checkers. Favorite players, Labourdannois, Anderssen, Morphy, Spielman, Tal, Shirov. I generally aim for open game and piece endings as oppose to pawn endings.

Orcinus: To answer <Vischer> I would say Fisher.

Orcinus: As a side note, I noticed some snide remarks on checkers. This is understandable. Let me point out it's simplicity is deceptive. <Asa Long> has been called the <Capablanca> of checkers for his talent and refine endgame play. He claims to spend over 50,000 hours in ...

Orcinus: The opening of files is often key like 21 Bxd5. The rook lift 27 Rb1-3 to go to the open g file is beautiful.

Orcinus: With my fondness for broad and sweeping maneuvers, which is why I call myself Orcinus, Smyslov is a favorite. Serene as the ocean, his games often typlifies such strategy.

Orcinus: I think the tournament to be held at Buenos Aires of Argentina is attractive. It's remote yet cultural. I'll vote for the popular time control though I don't care for adjournments. Secondairies and even computors play too large a role. The balance of concetration, knowledge and ...

Orcinus: <Sqaure dance> your probably right.

Orcinus: Can anyone explain to me why this is a victory for white?

Orcinus: My last comment was an old feeling resurged. Probably because I never expressed to anyone. Now that I expressed it (to everyone!) I find it doesn't reflect my feelings. I've grown to admire his games. A turning point was reading <How to Defend in chess> by Crouch. The analysis

Orcinus: Brilliancies are well, brilliant. One beauty of thier nature is the varying values of pieces. Sometimes a pawn or knight is worth a rook or even more than a queen in a given position, if only for a move or two. So the nature of brilliancy is dynamic and fleeting. Alekhine eye for ...
