I live near Atlanta Georgia. I don't have an official USCF rating, but my playchess.com rating fluctuates from 1700 to 1900. I am currently studying intensively to improve my game. I love chess!

My all-time chess heroes are Tigran Petrosian and Mikhail Tal. (If only I could blend their styles and somehow assimilate half their genius...). Among today's modern players, I am impressed with Kramnik and Morozevich. I like Kramnik because of his firm and sound style, and Morozevich because....well, he plays like a chess "left-hander", and I like those.

Also, one player that continually impresses me is Liviu Deiter Nisipeanu. Watching his games is amazing.

mormonchess: <To discuss this in a little worthier way, yes, there was a famine in Ukraine. It was mostly caused by kulaks and other counterrevolutionaries resorting to all kinds of barbaric methods in resisting collectivization.> Amusing. Because they wanted to remain free, they ...

mormonchess: Extraordinary endgame technique, indeed. Nisipeanu is a great player.

mormonchess: Also, Petrosian was considered unstoppable at blitz. He was very fast at the board in normal time controls as well. Only lost once on time in his entire career.

mormonchess: Yes, very impressive pawn play by Mr. Petrosian. He makes it look like child's play.

mormonchess: Petrosian was pretty famous for his delayed castling. Or, in this case, no castling at all!

mormonchess: Hi Ray...just bought your Petrosian vs. the Elite and I really enjoy the book. Question for you: did you ever meet Petrosian in person? If so, what was he like, on and off the chess board?

mormonchess: <notyetagm>: Petrosian and Capablanca really did make chess look like a simple game. Indeed they did! I often find Petrosian's games to be incredibly profound. I enjoy his knight maneuvers in this game. Very Nimzowitschian. <notyetagm> This game shows that Black is ...

mormonchess: Petrosian was not a straightforward kind of guy.
