From Sevilla (Spain), born in fifties. Chemical analyst, working in a official Drinking Water Quality Control laboratory.

Eye-witness in some games of Kasparov-Karpov WCC Sevilla 1987. Being a pre-teenager, I also watched a couple of games of Petrosian-Huebner, Candidates 1971.

Active player in 80s, not anymore. It was too much for my nervous system.

I'm very interested in chess history. Favourite player is an ideal mix Capablanca-Nimzovich-Smyslov. Two logical and clear minds and, in the middle, some drops of Nimzo eccentricity.

Current Favorite Poem:

Como dize Aristótiles, cosa es verdadera,
el mundo por dos cosas trabaja: la primera,
por aver mantenençia; la otra cosa era
por aver juntamiento con fenbra plazentera.

Si lo dexiés de mío, sería de culpar;
dizelo grand filósofo, non só yo de rebtar:
de lo que dize el sabio non devemos dubdar,
ca por obra se prueva el sabio e su fablar.

Que diz verdat el sabio clarame[n]te se prueva:
omnes, aves, animalias, toda bestia de cueva
quieren segund natura conpaña sienpre nueva,
e quanto más el omne que toda cosa que se mueva.

Digo muy más el omne que toda creatura:
todas a tienpo çierto se juntan, con natura;
el omne de mal seso todo tienpo, sin mesura,
cada que puede quiere fazer esta locura.

El fuego sienpre quiere estar en la çeniza,
comoquier que más arde quanto más se atiza;
el omne quando peca bien vee que desliza,
mas non se parte ende ca natura lo enriza.

E yo, como só omne como otro, pecador,
ove de las mugeres a las vezes grand amor;
provar omne las cosas non es por ende peor,
e saber bien e mal, e usar lo mejor.

Juan Ruiz, Arcipreste de Hita (1284-1351).

meloncio: <Jim> What about Jairzinho (1970 team)? And Toninho Cerezo & Junior (1982 team)? The weakest side of Brazil was always the goalkeeper. Except when Leao, they never had a "decent" one in 70-80s WC. That's only my opinion of course.
