My vision of chess, is more like an Art.
Chess is so immense, that many different styles can succeed. I prefer the attacking and combative chess.
I admire the old romatic games. But in last times I've been captured for the subtleties of endgames too.

Take a look to my blog:

   sirfraix has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-26-10 Kieseritzky vs H H Boncourt, 1839 (replies)
sirfraix: 23. Qxf4 is of course stronger, and more evident, I think.
   Jan-11-10 Saint Amant vs Staunton, 1843 (replies)
sirfraix: Saint Amant overlooked 55. Kxd5! and if 55... Nb6+ 56. Kd4! Nxa4 57. Rb8 g4 58. Rb4 Nc3 59. Kxc3 f4 and white must win. Tactics from the rook vs. knight technique.
   May-08-09 Najdorf vs NN, 1942 (replies)
sirfraix: I think that Najdorf did not overlook 11. Bxg6, just refused to play it because he wanted to play an attacking game, not to win mechanically.
   May-04-09 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 (replies)
sirfraix: After 19. Qh5 Morphy says: ▼ White has now acquired a winning position. But the variation explained by him: 19...h6 20.Rg1 (best) Bxc1 ?? overlooks the move 20... Be8! that neutralizes the white attack. Objectively 19. Bxh7+ looks better, like in nimh analysis.
   May-02-09 Von Der Lasa vs P Bilguer, 1837 (replies)
sirfraix: In the Ruy López de Segura old-style.
   Feb-12-09 McDonnell vs J Finch, 1830 (replies)
sirfraix: This game was originally odds of rook, so the a1 rook must be deleted. In othe games of this variant, McDonnell castles queen side, without the a1 rook.
   Nov-17-08 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1886 (replies)
sirfraix: I see a little silhouetto of a passed pawn! Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the promotion!
   Nov-08-08 Philidor vs NN, 1790 (replies)
sirfraix: 19... Ng5 20. hxg5 Kxg7 21. g6, and we have the typical passed pawns phalanx that we see in other Philidor games, the f pawn will fall in this variation. I think Philidor tactical strenght is equivalent to a 2300 fide rated player of our days.
   Sep-13-08 Morphy vs A Morphy, 1849 (replies)
sirfraix: Morphy himself and many commentators overlooked: 18. Nh4 , and the attack is devastating. for example: 18... Nd6 19.Qh5 Nxf5 20.Nxf5 Qc7 21.Rae1 Qf4 22.Re3... and win And the combination of 28th move, has a flaw, it ...
   May-13-08 Sokolsky vs Bronstein, 1944 (replies)
sirfraix: long live to the Evans Gambit!
