My father taught me, my sister (who is a year and a half older than me), and my mum to play chess at the same time when me and my sister were very young, (maybe 5 and 7). I didn't play much until taking an interest in chess at about 17, but I hadn't played much until about two years ago, and in more recent months I have been playing a lot more than ever before, (and I'm 21 now). I hope to get to an equivalent standard of a FIDE rating of about 1950 and then to join chess clubs, (so that I'm already one of the best once I get there). I hope that in about a year I will have achieved the approx. 1900's target and will join chess clubs and compete for them. I would hope that after about two years of experience in chess clubs I would be then looking at trying for the 24 rated games with average of 2300 over the next year. I'm currently doing a degree in maths and I want to do a PhD in pure maths.

My favourite players are Kasparov, Morozevich, Adams, Capablanca, and Lasker.

nyarlathotepcraft: Impressive 22 move win by Shirov.

nyarlathotepcraft: I like this gambit. Amazingly, Lasker recaptures the pawn but on move 23. And he achieved ensuring his opponent couldn't castle. The final combo starts on the rook sacrifice of move 35 and culminates in a piece advatage by move 42, (a seven move combo); rather nice!

nyarlathotepcraft: Some people insist on bringing a lucky amulet to a game or wearing a lucky jumper, but Kramnik goes to extremes by brining along a set of draws as his mascot. I still don't know how he carries them around with him. He must have a personal furniture delivery van.

nyarlathotepcraft: I'm disgusted.

nyarlathotepcraft: Great joke tamar! By the way, I think I can see a mate in 23 for white, but I'll have to get back to you on that; I might need to wait for quantum computers. And I agree with Vischer's naming the opening the Kramnik Attack or Kramnik Defence. This game is interesting for ...

nyarlathotepcraft: I ask why would even bother to store such a game. I do, however, think that storing the recent short draws of the grandmasters is good because anyone can study the statistics and establish who the top 20 short draw players of the last decade are. I find ...

nyarlathotepcraft: The knight moves 6 followed by a second 7 by white are a bad waste of time in the opening, and it just leads to a night exchange, and doubled pawns for white. Move seven by white is very poor. White then retreats with his bishop AND his other night, and all the time, black
