I have no ELO rating but I'm cosidered to be a strong amateur player. With white I open 1 e4 and usually try to get into Ruy Lopez. I do study Evans Gambit and King's Gambit but don't apply them in real games (yet). I am quite strong in my likes and dislikes in opening play. With black I play Sicilian against 1 e4 in almost 100% of cases. Against 1 d4, I use various setups. I enjoy high quality imaginitive chess. I don't have THE favorite player, I just love first-rate chess. I do belive Anand is the strongest player of today.

markos: <RisingChamp> How many GM's are there in world? And how many of them play 2 f4 after 1 e4 e5 regularly (more often than 2 Nf3) ? Can you really find anyone besides Fedorov? IMHO, KG is playable but not recommendable for often use. Risks are just to big. Speaking of Evan's, you ...
