Member since Dec-26-04
I used to play chess until the year 2000 after which studies and work took front stage. Now that I have settled into my job pretty nicely I hope to be able to spend more time studying my favorite phase of chess: endgames! Before I start studying them, I wish to get familiar with using any one chess software. I think this is an essential skill these days. Lookout for a collection of links in my forum for tips, tricks and hacks to get started with ChessMaster.

   Mar-11-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
amuralid: Shak and Fabi played fantastic chess yesterday. I think they are both in good shape but it is still early days. I enjoyed Kramnik demonstrating some learning and simplifying despite Grischuk being in time pressure. He mentioned at the end of the Tal memorial that he often tries to ...
   Dec-30-16 World Blitz Championship (2016) (replies)
amuralid: Ivanchuk looked totally lost during the entire presentation. He did not come when they called his name, then ran to the stage and jumped on the podium. Then seemed totally, totally engrossed in thoughts. I couldn't help laugh when he did not want to leave the stage even when they ...
   Nov-16-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
amuralid: <not not: for all the famous russian shool of chess and its home cooking opening novelties, there is nothing so far to be seen why is his opening game so weak?> This. I know Karjakin cannot be as prepared as Anand who is 20 years older! But I still do not get why he would ...
   Nov-15-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
amuralid: <pietah: I think agressiveness is the only weapon against the endgame-chess of the Norwegian champ.> Most probably. These styles are like a swinging pendulum. It is rare to see two world champions with similar styles. Alekhine-Euwe, Botvinnik-Smyslov are the closest examples ...
   Oct-02-16 Tal Memorial (2016) (replies)
amuralid: <saffuna> I think Kramnik could judge that that position was won for him without having to calculate the entire thing before the exchanges. The relatively closed center meant that the flanks were critical. And he had a better position on both flanks. I think that was the key ...
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
amuralid: Congrats Sergey Karjakin!
   Mar-16-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
amuralid: <jphamlore> I doubt Karjakin had enough resources even in 2014. I have heard him complain about Carlsen being able to rent super computers while he was stuck with a set of powerful laptops. I think the big change is that he is now a couple of years wiser having finished ...
   Mar-16-16 Topalov vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
amuralid: I am watching this without bothering about predictions. At the 2700+ levels - there are no bunnies. Sure Topalov is playing <relatively> weak chess. But he is a ex-world champion and highly experienced. And like all great players he can have flashes of inspiration. Topalov ...
   Mar-15-16 Karjakin vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
amuralid: <Marmot PFL> After <43. ... Rb3 44. Nd5 Ke6 45. Rxe7+ Kxd5 46. Rxh7> I think it is going to be either a 4-2 advantage for white on the kingside. Line 1: <46. ... Ra3 47. Rh6> winning either g6 or a6 Line 2: <46. ... Rb6> gives white a 4-2 advantage A player ...
   Mar-13-16 Giri vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
amuralid: Interesting, Karjakin is playing both sides of the Queens Indian within the first three games.
