Favorite Players: Garry Kasparov, Mikhail Tal, Anatoly Karpov, Boris Spassky.

I like playing both 1.d4 and 1.e4 as White, although I'm probably more of a 1.d4 player at the moment. Some of my favourite openings from the White side are the 6.Bg5 variation of the Najdorf, the Ruy Lopez, the Botvinnik Semi-Slav and the King's Indian Taimanov variation. As Black I enjoy playing the Sicilian Najdorf, the QGD Semi-Slav, and most recently the King's Indian.

<The hardest game to win is a won game.> - Emanuel Lasker

<Life is too short for chess.> - Byron

<When Victor replied to 1.e4 with 1...d6, I would have immediately severed my connections with this self-destroyer. A man of artistic temperament overestimated his strength and thought that he could place his bishop on g7 against Karpov! There are very few madmen who risk employing Pirc or King's Indian against Karpov.> - Alexsander A Shashin

   Sep-05-19 Garry Kasparov (replies)
KingG: I think people are being a bit harsh here. The score line may be embarrassing for Kasparov, but he isn’t really getting embarrassed in terms of the quality of his overall play. He just seems completely incapable of managing his time, and is prone to blunders (this already started ...
   Mar-12-18 G Dominguez Aguilar vs M Sebag, 2007
KingG: Strange end to the game. Black had an easy mate with 30...Rb1+, and instead makes some hard to understand moves.
   Mar-11-18 G Pfeiffer vs M Blau, 1952
KingG: Good attacking game, with a nice finish.
   Mar-11-18 Barcza vs A Tarnowski, 1950
KingG: The position on the 35th move would indeed make a good Monday puzzle.
   Mar-09-18 J Perlis vs F Duz-Khotimirsky, 1911 (replies)
KingG: A finish that found its way into many puzzle books.
   Mar-05-18 Simagin vs Polugaevsky, 1961
KingG: Black had to play 21...f6, giving up a pawn, in view of the threat of the typical mating attack 22.Qg7+! Kxg7 23.Nf5++ Kg8 24.Nh6#.
   Jan-28-18 Tata Steel Masters (2018) (replies)
KingG: <SometimesGood> <People change; Kramnik middle 90s and 2000 and now is a very different person. And it is better to read carefully. Caliber of Tal, Spassky etc. Svidler, Shiriv, Gelfand etc. cannot be compared with giants of 60s. The point is that Kasparov was great but not ...
   Jan-02-18 Alburt vs G Ligterink, 1980 (replies)
KingG: The standard King's Indian trick 11...Ncxe4! would have won a pawn, since if 12.Nxe4 Nxe4 13.Qxe4?? Bf5 14.Qf3 e4, Black wins the rook on a1. Surprising that both players missed this.
   Sep-10-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
KingG: It's been a cliche for ages, but Ivanchuk really can beat anyone or lose to anyone. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see him get knocked out in the next round, probably by losing on time. I would love to see him win the whole thing though. I don't know why Kramnik has started playing
   Aug-21-17 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
KingG: Talk about throwing the kitchen sink at someone. Great inventiveness from Marshall, and amazing defence from Capablanca.
