I am amateur enthusiast living in Illinois, USA. My favorite players are (in no particular order): Morphy, Chigorin, Lasker, Capablanca, Tal, Kasparov, and Anand.

Ratul: Someone please enlighten me. Didn't Polgar miss a mate in move 21? What is the continuation after queen advances to h7 check?

   Mar-24-10 Gelfand vs Ivanchuk, 1996

   Feb-10-10 Keene vs Miles, 1976 (replies)
Ratul: Great game GM Keene. Thanks for analyzing this and many other games. I started chess late, but have benefited greatly from your books.
   Feb-08-10 R Moor vs D Good, 2005 (replies)
Ratul: Moor did Good here :)
   Feb-03-10 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
Ratul: My knowledge about chess and chess history is much more limited than many others here. But why exactly did Alekhine not give Capa a rematch after 1927? Bogoljubov and Ewe were hardly the most deserving of candidates. the latter shocked him, but I think Alekhine picked them as easy ...
   Jan-28-10 Tal vs A Bannik, 1962 (replies)
Ratul: Talk about trying a queen sac on the master of queen sacs!
