Hi! I am a 40 year old chess player from Michigan, USA. I am an average player (USCF 1600-1700). I like chess, guitar, reading, and many other things.

<Until now, you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. (John 16:24)> :)

micartouse: Haven’t visited this site in a few years. Read the terrible news. So sad for Aronian my old chess hero on the loss of Arianne. I’m so used to seeing him full of cheer, this kind of loss is totally unimaginable. Your fans love you Lev. It doesn’t mean much, but hang in there
   Dec-10-17 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
micartouse: Congrats to the team that built AlphaZero. I’ve been away from chess for a while, but just read about this achievement. I was actually surprised to see how much skepticism there is here about the match. Sure, various conditions could have been better. But make no mistake, the ...

micartouse: RIP George Michael. Faith was my first cassette - he often reached beyond the constraints of corporate pop music and added a touch of class. A very gifted songwriter and performer.

micartouse: I shouldn't have said <succeed in this goal> though. That was clumsy wording. There is no confusion what the goal is.
   Dec-01-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
micartouse: I think Carlsen is a good openings player. He can memorize with the best of them, but he focuses instead on achieving his practical goals. He knows how to steer the battle; he's a clever general. There's reciting moves, and there's genuinely commanding your forces.
   Dec-01-16 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969 (replies)
micartouse: I've always found Petrosian's play very unnerving. The position after 15. f5 is so typical in his games. The pawns are warring on the light squares; they can exchange, they can press forward, they can just stay put. I can't tell if I think it's unaesthetic or if I just can't ...
   Nov-30-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
micartouse: A real genius with a crown to prove it.
   Nov-30-16 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
micartouse: Congrats to Karjakin on his monumental achievement - holding the world champion to a drawn match. Bravo!
   Nov-26-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
micartouse: Another thing to bear in mind regarding wild tactical play is that it's always been uncommon at the WC level; only 3 of the 16 classical champs had a reputation for playing this way consistently. I think it's just harder to do. I'm sure there will eventually be another. Someone ...
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
micartouse: Congrats to the Norwegian. Brutal display of perseverance.
