Vishy but not Anand
Member since Oct-18-08 · Last seen Jan-02-09
I learned how to move pieces at the age of 6 (who cares -LOL) but never take it seriously until 13 (a bit serious), the time I started reading chessbooks. I have more than 300 Chessbooks and Magazines but actually I never read them all due to I was more on selective reading for those games not ended in drawn and most of the time, I feel sleepy after reading for 2-3 succeeding hours.

Fortunately, before I take chess seriously, I'd realized that Chess is not for me, due to I am so impatient and felt really bored for waiting if my opponent thinks so long. Even in classical chess my tempo for every move is more like Rapid Chess and I am expecting the same for my opponent to do the same but of course it is not always the case.

I am an aggressive player and loves to sacrifice for the beauty of the game but sometimes they are not so sound. I want to finish the game as early as possible. Most of my games are either win or loss, I seldom accept draw unless it is really a drawn position.

My favorite chessbooks are:

Capablanca's 100 Best Games
Sacrifices in Sicilian
The Art of Sacrifice in Chess by Rudolf Spielmann Alekhine Block (compilation of sacrifices from earlier masters to Kasparov) The Games of Robert James Fischer
Life and Games of Michael Tal
The Middle Game Book I & II - M. Euwe and H. Kramer 1001 Brilliant Chess Sacrifices and Combinations 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate

Now, I don't have practice for atleast 20 years, so I always avoid bookline well analyzed openings and I deviate as early as possible to bring the games into a position that most probably both players have to think on the chessboard.

Regardless of color I always play for a win but of course I also loss a lot. When I play black, I seldom castle to preserve one move and to neutralize a move behind when playing black (This is my own theory, maybe it will become widely accepted theory from a non-GM and will be also put into practice by GMs someday as a standard theory when all theoretical opening variations are all exhausted). I build counterattack instead of building a defense but it is not always successful, I am getting too bored when thinking for long.

I don't like alibis even in Chess, if somebody lose regardless of level, then accept the results then move on...

I have still a lot to share but I will continue later, I have other things to do now....

Vishy but not Anand: < Everett: After 16.Be3 Bb4 white will probably have problems finding safe haven for his king. 16.Bd2 returns the pawn, shores up the N and makes time for castling.> Nonsense, white doesn't need to castling, he just need to continue to gain space advantage to ...

Vishy but not Anand: < Vishy but not Anand: Lajos Portisch focus was in the queenside and I think Kingside maneuver is better than Queenside in this position. Anyway, black position is basically cramped and it is not easy for black to get a breakthrough in queenside. So I think 15.Na4? is

Vishy but not Anand: 22. h4! Bh6 23. Qb6! threatening mate at b7. The best way to attack black king is simple and direct. Another possible option is 22.Bxb7 but after I made a glance analysis, it seem that it can't reach any winning position) Options... 23....Bxe3+ 23....Bc8 ...

Vishy but not Anand: The worst defense can even mate it in 39th move. The actual game made a very bad defense of Qd7?? as I explained in previous post that made mate inevitable at move 40th at Qh4. The best defense for black of which no one seem sees it so far from the post except me is ...

Vishy but not Anand: Memory overload! They've memorized too much booklines and forgot the basic mate. Anyway, there were lots of errors through-out the game like... (1) 18. Nb6? better move is Nxe5 black position is quite inferior. (2)20. Qxe5? Why not... 20. Nxe4 Qg5 21. g6 (not a ...

Vishy but not Anand: < Vishy but not Anand: I think Fischer's mistakes were 19. Qf1 a long way maneuver and 20. a3?? due to weakens his support at b3. I prefer the following continuation with continuous flow of attack... 19. bxc3 Qa6 (or Qb7) 20. Rdf1 (his rook is no use at d1 so ...
