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)

stanleys: Happy 90th birthday, GM Padevsky!
   May-26-23 Epishin vs F de la Paz Perdomo, 2006

   Mar-03-22 V Zagorovsky vs Simagin, 1951 (replies)
stanleys: Unfortunately the complete game's score seems to be lost, but anyway - brilliant game by Simagin!

   Sep-30-21 Yuri Gusev (replies)
stanleys: <SkySports> It's very strange, because there is no year of the death mentioned in the text before , simply (1921-?). Maybe there was a copy/paste from the previous line 6, about the player Gumerov, who died in 2011. I will try to get confirmation by other sources whether Mr. ...

stanleys: Happy 99th birthday, GM Averbakh!
   Feb-08-21 Dolmatov vs A Sokolov, 1990 (replies)
stanleys: The key moment was 14...e5?! - a poor decision by Sokolov, creating weaknesses and making his dark-squared bishop "bad". 14...a3!? 15.Rdc1!? (as Dolmatov intended to play), would have been an interesting continuation.
