WhoKeres
Member since Jan-10-03 · Last seen Aug-05-20
I have been playing for over 25 years. I was an OTB USCF expert and still an A player. I am a CM in correspondence chess. Keres is my favorite player, but my playing style is more like Botvinnik or Nimzovich, though I have far less ability than they did!

   Mar-25-20 Fedorowicz vs Dlugy, 1987
 
WhoKeres: A cute finish based on the overloading of black's queen, due to Dlugy's blunder on move 28.
 
   Jan-14-20 J van Foreest vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: Nice to see Carlsen try the Two Knights Defense instead of heading for the boring Guioco Piano, which is currently fashionable at the highest levels. The try 8. Bd3 is weaker than the old main line with 8. Be2 or Bogolubow's specialty 8. Qf3.
 
   Aug-17-19 Karjakin vs Mamedyarov, 2019 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: Karjakin should be ashamed! After white's 9th move he had a clear advantage: 2 bishops, ahead in development, and more space. 10. d5 just leads to a bunch of exchanges. Qd2 looks better to me. In any event, I can't imagine Shak holding this position against Tal, Fischer, or ...
 
   Jul-03-19 S Kosmo vs T Rydstrom, 2016
 
WhoKeres: Black missed a clear win with 31...Rxe2+, picking up two pieces for a rook. He ended up being lucky to draw.
 
   Jun-14-19 L Aronson vs Gurgenidze, 1957
 
WhoKeres: Great king hunt by Aronson showing how difficult it can be to defend with opposite colored bishops and an exposed king.
 
   Mar-25-19 Bisguier vs Reshevsky, 1970
 
WhoKeres: A pretty finish by Reshevsky after it appeared that Bisguier had finally equalized. Reshevsky still had a lot of tactical skill in 1970 and obtained a good result in Buenos Aires.
 
   Dec-31-18 Von Bardeleben vs Pillsbury, 1902 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: Great fight by both players, with a cute finish by Pillsbury!
 
   Aug-11-18 G Jones vs T Luther, 2006
 
WhoKeres: Jones must have been in time trouble as he has a clear advantage in the final position. The middle game tactical battle was sensational!
 
   Jun-01-18 Seidman vs Ragozin, 1945
 
WhoKeres: Nice technique from GM Ragozin. He utilized his good knight vs. Seidman's bad bishop and timed the breakthrough on f4 nicely. This game shows the difference in class between a GM and a strong national master.
 
   Feb-22-18 Breyer vs Janowski, 1913 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: Beautiful use of the bishop pair by one of the greatest masters of their use...Janowski!
