Greetings from Key West FL USA.

I'm a Vishy fan. In 1985 I was in Madras, India on a field project and played lots of chess at the Tal CC. I also had the opportunity to play at the V.K. Mills Open in Palni, won by 15 year old Vishy Anand. Afterwards Vishy and his friend Manuel Aron (sp?) went over their games in my dorm room and then we played some speed. I took a snapshot. They were just a couple of kids, I was the bigshot visiting scientist. :)

Best published rating USCF 1954 in 1987, highest rated victim 2150, call myself an Expert.

   Dec-11-19 Duras vs P P Saburov, 1906 (replies)
Rama: Tough,if you thought it was black to move. :)
   Oct-19-19 Nimzowitsch vs Weenink, 1930 (replies)
Rama: The program of restriction reminded me of Alpha zero except it didn't hold up.
   Oct-16-19 J Cori vs N Huschenbeth, 2012 (replies)
Rama: I liked 19. ...Nxc3, 20. bxc3 Rxc3. White cannot take the black Queen or he winds up down a rook after the checks. So the pawn is won with minimal fuss.

Rama: Yeah, they're cheesy so they fall apart but they are my pride. I transferred the plaques from the trophies to a single wall-hanging display.
   Aug-19-19 Tolush vs Keres, 1939 (replies)
Rama: I kept wanting to play Qxd5+, oops.
   Jul-14-19 Tal vs Suttles, 1972 (replies)
Rama: I saw the line but missed the double attack after Qd2.
   May-31-19 Smyslov vs Ribli, 1983 (replies)
Rama: What a rich position!
   May-22-19 Oldrich Duras (replies)
Rama: Just solved a tactical puzzle from the game Vik-Duras Prague 1899. I wanted to see the entire game but here we only go to 1900?
   Apr-28-19 O Kurmann vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
Rama: Nice to see a 2-Knights, I had some great victories with it. Here I tried 18. ... e4, to clear the way.
   Apr-22-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
Rama: Yes, as to the doubled pawns. The possibility of b4 is always there. But here it looks like Carlsen plans to give Vishy the 'treatment' used in the last two rounds: Keep playing until something gives, 6 hours, 7 hours, that's fine with him.
