Just a common patzer OTB rating a tick below the magical 2.000 mark. Best personal game, beating an IM in a tournament game.

Active fav. players.


Players I would like to see (more often) at top events: Le Quang Liem. He has all the tools to make it to a very good Top Ten player in my book.

All time favorites: Tal, Kasparov.

Note: although I enjoy Tal and Kasparov my style of play looks more like Kramnik or Karpov playing (on a much , much lower level ofc., what I mean is, my play is more positional than tactical).

As much as I like watching Carlsen as World Champ and potentially gaining a status in chess history similar to Kasparov, I find his play sometimes a bit "dull". (almost) All of his games are high quality, they are just not as exciting to watch in my opinion. It's nice to see how Kramnik reinvented himself and started to play more actively for wins again.

Refused: easy. 41...Rxd2 42.Qxd2 (42.Rxd2 Qf1#) Bxc5+ 43.Bd4 (43.Re3 Qf1#) Qf1+ 44.Ke3 Qxf3#

Refused: Typical <Naiditsch on tilt> game. He played the same kinda of bull against Bluebaum in Mainz. Different opening, yet the same <I'll show you, who's da boss> macho @#$%. Bauer isn't some kinda patzer , whom Naiditsch can toy with. Let's see how long it takes Naiditsch in ...

Refused: 24.? White to move. Black's position looks highly suspicious. White's pieces are well placed and ready to attack, and to add insult to injury White has a strong center with a mobile pawn mass. Particularly h6 seems to be the focal point where white threatens to crash in. For now h6

Refused: Does that mean Fischer will be running against Ilyumzhinov next turn?
   Sep-12-14 J Kraai vs I A Novikov, 2004 (replies)
Refused: 27...? I would love to play 27...Re2 with threat 28...Qh1# 28.Bxe2 Qg2# but that's not working right away because of 28.Nxe2 what about 27...Re4 with the threats of Rxh4 and Rg4? not working neither because of that pesty Knight on c3. That damn thing is keeping white's entire ...
   Sep-11-14 Karpov vs Salov, 1995 (replies)
Refused: 41.Rg6! should seal the deal. That move cuts off the Bishop from the vital h7 square. No white is threatening h7+ - g8Q# 41.Rg6 a) 41...Bxg6 42.Kxg6 black can't stop the pawn. b)41...Rf7+ 42.Kg5

Refused: Yes, that was the World Cup. Are you sure the spot would be passed on to the next on the respective rating list and not to the third placed in the GP series?

Refused: <Knowning Huebner has an academic career is easy, but finding out exactly what is his field of study is fairly difficult. Well, it was for me, but eventually I found the following: <This German grandmaster was born in 1948. The son of a classical philologist, Hübner grew up in

Refused: After some failed trials to get something from luring the Queen away with Rd8 I decided to try 37...Qxb2+ 38.Rxb2 Rg1+ 39.Ka2 Rd1 40.Qxd1 Nc3+ thus far everything is forced. (40.Qb3 Nc3+ is obviously bad) 41.Ka1 Nxd1 41.Kb3
