I'm a 17-year old chess player from Finland. I've been playing for a bit over two years now and I don't yet have any official ratings. On internet blitz playing sites I've been rated 2000+ more or less. I play on correspondence sites also, 1800+ on gknot and about 2100 on letsplaychess. Favourite of numerous favourite players is Capablanca. Others in my top-five are Lasker, Petrosian, Tal and Alekhine.

holierthanthou: <Waffles> It's playable but I can think of one big downside if you're going to play it like a Panov-Botvinnik. Black's main problem in the French is his QB which is usually trapped behind black's own pawns for a long time. In this sense this anti-French gives black a ...

holierthanthou: <yoozum> A quick search with Google confirms that Rublevsky won it after tiebreaks. Vaganian and Filippov tied him with 7 points. Apparently Ivanchuk didn't play last year.

holierthanthou: <samvega> I most certainly am. First of all, <6. ..fxe6> is naturally followed with 7.Ne5 and a crushing advantage for white. It's the same thing with <6. ..f6>, 7. Ne5 fxe5 8. Qf3. Any attempts to trap the white queen are in vain, 8. ..Qc7 9. Qxa8 Nc6 ...

holierthanthou: <morostyle> I thought there were references about a player from Sicily playing it regularly from as early as the 16th century. Infact, I believe Lucena mentioned 1.e4 c5 as an option already in his book published at the end of the 15th century.
