dikankan: If black plays 23..Qxf4, White wins the queen back with an extra pawn by 24.Nxd5+ and black will have fatal weaknesses on b7, c7 and e6. White's rooks in the centre are deadly compared to black's rooks, and it is quite an instructive position.

dikankan: Congratulations on that result FSB, and on such an informative post. On the subject of Morphy numbers, I have a copy of the 1971 Volume of the British Chess Magazine, which includes the following obituary (p. 249): "Essex chess players suffered a severe loss with the death of T.H.

dikankan: Terribly sad news, I loved Larsen's original style, his unfailing optimism self-confidence and sheer love of chess. His enthusiasm comes over well in his writings as well. It's as though chess was always new for him, still waiting to be explored.
   Sep-17-09 C Sreeves vs K Emery, 2009
dikankan: 7.e6 looks much more dangerous for black. (7.. Bxe6 8.c4 and 9.d5, 7...fxe6 8.Ng5)
   Feb-28-08 Topalov vs Carlsen, 2008 (replies)
dikankan: I'm thrilled by this game. I'm longing for a revival for my favourite opening, Alekhine's (or the "Accelerated Petroff" as I've been known to call it), and it shows how readily black can get a very pleasant position against sub-optimal white play. Carlsen is already so good as ...

dikankan: Hi, excuse me if I'm missing something, but why is there no analysis of 18 Nxe4. As far as I can see after 18...dxe4 or 18...fxe4 black has some problems after 19 Qc3. While on 18...Bxe5 19. Nxe5 there is again 20. Qc3 whichever knight capture black opts for. I'm looking at ...

dikankan: Respect and gratitude to Kramnik for much fine chess over seven years as WCC, and for showing determination and dignity in the face of all the difficulties he faced. Does anyone else think he deserves more credit than he is given precisely for not playing a rematch with Kasparov ...
   Sep-19-07 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2007 (replies)
dikankan: Could this be one of Kramnik's least successful games? Not because his play was anything other than impeccable, but because he has helped his future opponents find a defence against the Catalan!
