<" If you ever learn how to play chess, I'll let you know...">

You can enjoy one of my recent games at:

   Aug-30-17 Dimitrios Mastrovasilis
spysfi: This summer he gave a big (over sixty players) simul in Nafpaktos, Greece and I think he went like 59.5-0.5 against many players rated over 1500. I got a good position with black against his pet opening (Two knights Caro-Kann) where he admitted after the game that he mixed the move ...

spysfi: A month ago I met her with GM Dimitrios Mastrovasilis in Nafpaktos, Greece, in a big simul. If I remember correctly, Dimitris said that they are living together in Poland. Here is a family photo from her site where the Greek GM is second from left. ...

   Mar-13-16 Nakamura vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
spysfi: Take a look at 8:03 in this video: Svidler is asking Hikaru if he won Carlsen. It seems to me that he is acting like his mentor, or at least they are close friends. Am I wrong?

spysfi: Naka no1 for at least 10 mins
   Oct-13-15 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
spysfi: The real killer was 31. ...Ra1, a shocking distraction of white's rook & queen, an idea which amazingly both players missed several times!! "Thrashing the London system" by Karjakin
   Sep-21-15 I Nepomniachtchi vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
spysfi: User <babycrocodile> comment on "The next time these two play, Naka should troll Nepo by castling with his mouth. There's nothing in the rules against that, and should throw Nepo off his game completely" !!!
