Favorite players: Bronstein, Pillsbury, Tal, Kasparov, Morphy. I love and appreciate the games of Fischer, Alekhine & Capablanca, but not so much the person.

   Feb-15-07 Geller vs Euwe, 1953 (replies)
matrix: Still one of my all time favorite games. Amazing how what took over a week of analysis to find in defense (according to Bronstein), my Fritz 9 finds in nearly no time. Just another indication of how much impact computers have (not that one would get to the position after23. ...Rc2
   Dec-23-06 Team White vs Team Black, 2006 (replies)
matrix: team black <whatthefat> It isn't my fritz analysis of any particluar line that concerns me with h6. Moreover, it is the additional kingside weakness created with the pawn move, in a position where Black hasn't ...

matrix: rofl azaris. Life really is like a country song -- it's 5:00 somewhere.

matrix: Lighten up, kitten in the cap. Heisman's Novice Nook is a gem for explaining required concepts, while the rest of chess literature is like learning unix - nothing makes sense until you already know the material you are reading about. Dan, btw, I liked your commentary on last

matrix: Taking a risk making the choice to play? Kramnik is a professional chess player. The idea is to play chess and, yup, performance counts. IMHO, he didn't really have a choice about playing in Sofia - he stated he was playing there in an interview when asked about Linares, and since he

matrix: As someone on playchess put it, karma is catching up with Kramnik for dodging Kasparov.
   May-16-05 MTel Masters (2005) (replies)
matrix: <weirdoid> There are going to be a lot of draws with this group of players. Personally, I think its great to see games played out to K v. K or other theoretical draw. It makes the chess better to watch - when you can only see games live Sat & Sun mornings 12 move draws are ...
   Apr-01-05 Nimzowitsch vs Systemsson, 1927 (replies)
matrix: <aw1988> The real genius would be sneaking this game in as a main line to MCO, NCO, etc., and then get someone to follow it. Seems the momentary 'disconnection' has been happening a lot to my opponents lately (at critical points in the game), then their reconnecting before ...

matrix: <whiskeyrebel: ...moronic bigots> That just about completely sums up RJF as a person. Great chessplayer, but Iceland can have him. Since we are coming up on April 15th, I've even less sympathy for his plight than ususal.
