I just got my FIDE rating last week at age 52 beating 3 players between 1760 and 2048.Before that I had played 3 FIDE tournaments without beating even 1 rated player.Good improvement.Have been studying chess only for past 1.50 years years,though I have been casual club chess player for 12 years.Learnt and played chess in college 35 years ago before starting to play 12 years ago.Took to serious chess last 1.5 years.Played 15 chess tournaments past 1.50 years.

   Jun-13-11 Steinitz vs A Mongredien, 1862 (replies)
Thesaint8x: I think the main lesson of the game is that double fianhetto meant Black was behind in development and should nevever have opened center with e5.After that it was White win all the way with some more weak moves by black.
   Dec-15-10 Y Hou vs Short, 2008 (replies)
Thesaint8x: Hou can I learn to play like this? Taking advantage of a misplaced knight?I am hoping someone plays like Black in this line and I can impress everyone.Not improbable,now that this opening is becoming as fashionable (for the moment?)as Sicilian.
   Dec-11-10 McShane vs Adams, 2010 (replies)
Thesaint8x: Has Anand faced the GP Attack in recent years?I am sure he must be aware of Yermolinsky's answer to it in his book but has not used it in this game. Anand has missed a chance to be positionally up had he played 15..fxe4 instead of 15..dxe4
   Dec-09-10 Carlsen vs Adams, 2010 (replies)
Thesaint8x: Carlsen-Adams is going to be a treat.Not easy for Carlsen to be go for a win against a natural genius like Adams.
   Dec-08-10 Short vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
Thesaint8x: Will be interesting to watch Vishy counter Nakamura's unorthodox thinking.Will it be 1d4f5 ? Then Nakamura should take care!
   Oct-25-10 Nanjing Pearl Spring Tournament (2010) (replies)
Thesaint8x: Kasparov's advantage is not just opening preparation but the Russian system backing him and Bovinnik's guidance which Vishy Anand lacked.That is the foundation which the latter lacked in 1995.Not now,perhaps.
   Oct-25-10 Anand vs V Gashimov, 2010 (replies)
Thesaint8x: I do hope Vishy plays 1.e4 more often.Against Magnus in a future world championship game will Vishy dare 1e4?
   Oct-25-10 Bacrot vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
Thesaint8x: I do hope Magnus is outplayed strategically or tactically by Bacrot.That would be cool to watch.
   Oct-22-10 L Van Vliet vs Rubinstein, 1907
Thesaint8x: I agree Black's tension-releasing-for White is strange,since I have got this outpost in a tournament game where I got the better position by maintaining the knight though I subsequently could not convert advantage to victory. Black's 25th move( ! )centralizing the King is ...
