A keen chessplayer from Varna,Bulgaria.Had some good results in national junior championships,but now playing just for fun. My favorite player...If I have to give one name,this is Tigran V.Petrosian.Yes he is not so popular,but it's worth studying his games,you'll appreciate his great positional understanding and intuition ,his technique and his ability to explain what's going on on the board in several simple words. In fact there are many other players,that I would also call "favorite".I could divide them in two groups:"elegant positional players":besides Petrosian i would put there Rubinstein,Capablanca and Smyslov and ""dynamic,creative players":Keres,Bronstein,Simagin,Nezmetdinov,Ste- in(Tal is rather particular one)

   Apr-12-19 Bronstein vs Deep Thought, 1992
stanleys: Much prettier conclusion of the game could have been 22... Qxf3 23. Qc7+ Nxc7 24. Nb6+ Kb8 25. Rxd8+ Ka7 26. Ra8+ Nxa8 27. Nc8#
   Mar-26-19 H Bogart vs L Bacall, 1951
stanleys: The two stars in action in another game of chess -
   Feb-25-19 A Tari vs D Sadzikowski, 2019
stanleys: < luzhin: Black could have turned the tables with the spectacular 33...Ne4!! which simply wins, the main point being that after 34.Qxd7 Rc1+ mates. For this reason White had to play 33.h3 before capturing on e6.> This is quite a nice tactical shot based on the back-rank ...

stanleys: Happy 95-th birthday,Mr.Neishtadt!
   May-24-18 Deep Sengupta (replies)
stanleys: If Deep Sengupta was aware of the two games below, he would have avoided such a loss for sure. A little consolation is that he is not the first strong player to fall into this trap. Doroshkievich vs V Tukmakov, 1970 Razuvaev vs Kupreichik, 1970
   Apr-22-18 Nino Khurtsidze (replies)
stanleys: Sad news, she died today after long illness :( Rest in peace
   Dec-12-17 Keres vs G Geshev, 1936
stanleys: A pic from this game -
   Nov-06-17 R Mamedov vs D Dubov, 2017
stanleys: Brilliant game by Mamedov in the most important team match. Still cannot understand Dubov's decision to give his bishop for nothing with 23...Rd8 without being forced.Someone has indicated that 23...e5 is better than the text as well, allowing the king and the rook to enter in play
   Jul-18-17 Marijan Georgiev Petrov (replies)
stanleys: Bulgarian champion in 2017 as well
   Feb-20-17 V Gunina vs A Bachmann, 2016
stanleys: Very nice tactical battle starting from 37...Nd4!. Think that everything was forced, both sides finding best moves, black remaining a pawn up, but in a drawn rook ending.
