My Openings:
White- 1.c4/1.d4/1.Nf3 ---usually turns out to be Queen's Gambit/English/Reti

Black- Sicilian Kan (v.e4/Nf3), Nimzo-Indian/Queen's Indian (v.d4/Nf3), Symmetrical English Hedgehog formation (v.c4/Nf3)

Occupation: high school senior

Favorite players: too many to list

   Slovensko has kibitzed 14 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-24-04 English (A10) (replies)
Slovensko: As an English player... after 1...Nf6, I play 2.g3 just to spite the opponent, because he/she usually seeks an Indian defense and I don't want to give him/her a "moral" victory by playing his/her prepared defense. Most English players will not play 2.d4 against 1...Nf6 either, ...
   Mar-16-04 Ruy Lopez (C77) (replies)
Slovensko: This is the ECO code under which the interesting move 5.d4 in the Spanish/Ruy Lopez is classified. Does anyone play this as white? I heard it is similar to Scotch, and has some good tactical possibilities, although I have not tried it myself, because I do not really play e4 as ...
   Mar-13-04 Queen's Gambit Declined Slav (D10) (replies)
Slovensko: Interesting that the discussion about whether to play 3.Nc3 and 3.Nf3 in the Slav (Orthodox as well) Queen's Gambit has come up, since I was just polemizing on the same thing...the transpositions are very headache-y.
   Feb-29-04 Kasparov vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
Slovensko: Draw.....!!
   Feb-25-04 Shirov vs Radjabov, 2004 (replies)
Slovensko: I am surprised that Radjabov played the King's Indian, as the Bayonet Attack with 9.Re1 gives white quite strong chances. I was under the impression that at the master level, KID was difficult to equalize with as black.
   Feb-21-04 Shirov vs Topalov, 2004 (replies)
Slovensko: Shirov missed (probably due to time trouble) 37. Qd8+ Kg7 38. Qxd4+ followed by 39. Nxe4 after black moves his king. Draw would still be highly likely though, as both kings are open with queens on the board.
   Feb-06-04 Reti Opening (A09) (replies)
Slovensko: This is one of my favorite openings because it requires great patience and careful maneuvers. Although it often doesn't give white too much, I like to play it as white along with the English/Queen's Pawn. I have one problem with it though...After 2...dxc4, what is the best ...
   Feb-01-04 Polerio vs Busnardo, 1590 (replies)
Slovensko: I do not think that black resigned from the given is more likely that the remaining moves are simply missing/not recorded, since this is quite an old best guess anyways.
   Jan-10-04 Geller vs Suetin, 1950 (replies)
Slovensko: Wow, this would be a good addition to Benjamin Lau's collection about World Class blunders.
   Jan-07-04 Gulko vs Salov, 1991 (replies)
Slovensko: 31...Bxf6 32.Qxh7+ Kf8 33.Qf7#
