botvinnik64: I repeat my Birthday Greetings to 3 great chess players. This year, it's 67o in NYC!
   Jan-11-20 Ju - Goryachkina Women's World Championship (2020) (replies)
botvinnik64: AG in very good shape if she draws in game 6; the turnaround to Vladivostok as venue will boost her confidence. She has a shot. This match just got real.
   Jan-09-20 Ju Wenjun vs A Goryachkina, 2020 (replies)
botvinnik64: Check it Out: I agree entirely - why voluntarily bust up your pawns (while removing pieces on the board) when the dull 34...Be7 probably would have held in 95% of the cases?
   Jan-05-20 E Torre vs Unzicker, 1981 (replies)
botvinnik64: 1981 - here we are, almost 40 years later, and Torre is still playing chess, representing The Philippines in the Olympics for a record number of times. He got wiped out here by another player we should not forget - Unzicker. A nice, albeit not terribly difficult puzzle (for ...

   Dec-11-19 Radjabov vs Anand, 2002
botvinnik64: Vishy forever! Happy 50th birthday (12/11/2019) - may you live and play chess for another 50!
   Dec-11-19 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
botvinnik64: There’s Karpov, Kasparov, Fischer and Magnus. And then there is Vishy, one of the greatest World Champions! I was lucky enough to meet him in 1995 at the WCC match w Kasparov at the World Trade Center (the match began, btw, on September 11). What a different world we live in. ...
   Dec-09-19 Grand Prix Monaco (Women) (2019) (replies)
botvinnik64: Today (12/9) is Nakamura's 32nd birthday - why is he not The Player of The Day??
   Dec-04-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
botvinnik64: Sokrates! When was the last time you read The Theatetus? Parmenides? Good to see you back, your words are always worth reviewing.
