  keypusher: Anyway, <steppenwolf>, taking up your earlier challenge, here is a nice game from the tournament:

Vasiukov vs J Klovans, 2005

I can't claim to be any great expert on Vasiukov, but I've always liked what little I saw. Back when I played in tournaments in the mid-80s I used the Czech Benoni -- he played black in a number of the model games from the 1960s.

In this game he plays the King's Indian Reversed, trading off his Indian bishop but getting good squares for his knights. (One of the ideas in the Czech Benoni -- one of the few ideas in the Czech Benoni, I should say -- is to play ...Be7 and ...Bg5, getting rid of black's KB.) White gradually gets a bind and, despite a mass of pieces protecting black's king, finds a winning sacrifice of his remaining bishop.

This game won't win any Informant prizes (assuming there is still an Informant), but it's nice to see that Evgeny Vasiukov has still got it.

  keypusher: Here is Vasiukov from his heyday. As you can see, he had a real knack for "Indian" games.

Geller vs Vasiukov, 1968

Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Keypusher, this 2005 A07 has a Keres feel to it. Not badly played but it does show its out of date approach. Not enough challenge in the early development. You probably could do better, let alone the top players of nowadays.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Hayton, why are you trolling like that? Dont you have something to do with your retirement days? Insults seem to be your only way of life. Do something, try therapy, it might do you good. Talking about your violent daddy might trigger some awareness to you underlying constant anger. Look at the picture you chose: sad, constipated and violent. It seems like a difficult case of anal obstruction. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life hoping for a Flush?
Oct-19-05  hayton3: Correction - you need a smaller head and then it will fit.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Sorry, hayton, if my brain is too large for you. Can't do anything about it. What can I say: better luck in your next life? But then, a loser will always find a way to be a loser, in a billion lifetimes. I love you, man. That makes 2 of us, your mummy and me!

  chancho: <hayton3> Everything Steppenwolf is doing postwise, seems TOO contrived for my taste.Prior to yesterday,this guy's posts were quite normal, and now he starts to play the troll game.I wonder if this guy is conducting some kind of experiment.
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <chancho> true, but he's taking the bait. I fear the lighter of the fuse has allowed the gunpowder to blow up in his face.
Oct-19-05  Happypuppet: The ignore list is there for a reason...
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <Happypuppet> and you are just as welcome to use it in the same way that I'm not obliged to use it.
Oct-19-05  suenteus po 147: <hyaton3> I'm curious about something. I am a big advocate of the ignore kibitzer function on this site, but like you I am not obliged to use it. I was wondering what your reasoning is for not using it?
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <suenteus po 147>

1) I like to see the whole picture - nothing more annoying I would imagine than trying to follow a thread when x,y,z are missing.

2) I'm very much in favour of free speech. Putting someone on ignore is not part of my make-up.

3) So called "trolls" on that feature heavily on other kibitzer's ignore lists I find rather entertaining. It also makes for some light-hearted comic relief in between studying and enjoying chess.

4) Keep your friends close but your enemies even closer.

  chancho: <hayton3>The doctrine you posted on a certain page was totally hilarious.Each time I reread it, I burst into laughter.
Oct-19-05  suenteus po 147: <hayton3> Thank you for your candid responses. I agree wholeheartedly with #1 and #2.
Oct-19-05  suenteus po 147: <hayton3> Although I know you are completely serious, #4 gave me a chuckle :)
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <Chancho> my thanks good sir - luckily that post was on the right side of the Maginot line. Remember, we are only a handful that appreciate such humour - there are apparently many thousands who are not amused - "We will fight them on the beaches - we will never surrender" :-)
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <suenteus po 147> Acutally your gut was right on point 4 as I said it tongue in cheek.

On point 3 I may have given the impression that I enjoy trolls. No - I enjoy taking the michael out of them.

Oct-19-05  hangingenprise: <chancho> That was darn funny!
Oct-20-05  Steppenwolf: I heartily agree with you, dear hayton. I love free speech. I love to be able to babble without restraint, just like you. Bothering others makes life enjoyable when we have nothing much to do. So don't fret, I won't put you on my ignore list, not even if you go on exposing in a thousand posts your simplistic rules and views of life. It is too much fun reading them over and over and over again.

  keypusher: <Keypusher, this 2005 A07 has a Keres feel to it. Not badly played but it does show its out of date approach. Not enough challenge in the early development. You probably could do better, let alone the top players of nowadays.> In my dreams.
Oct-21-05  Skepticus: <Steppenwolf> I'm not an american, in the sence that I'm a citizen of the USA. I'm an americen in the sence that I live in the American continent. I'm mexican, and I'm not a senior. I'm clarifiying I'm not a senior preventing that you could use that supposition to explain why I defend senior's tournaments. I defend senior's games because I have learned a lot from a senior mexican player. He was never an international figure, but he has much to teach. What I'm concerned with you it's with your simplistic way to trow away the many things you can learn from seniors. That is an insult, not the fact that you can be beaten by a senior.
Oct-21-05  Steppenwolf: Skepticus
Point taken. Thanks. But I didn't mean to insult older players. Just to voice the opinion that analysing their games seems to me to be useless if you want to progress in chess. Unless of course you have unlimited time to do so. But as far as I'm concerned, subject closed.
Oct-26-05  Anatooly Homedepotov: Yep, the fact is that these chess playing geezers could still clobber most of the people on this site with several pawns tied behind their arthritic backs. Anyways, I'll try not to annoy the OLDER members on this site in the future and defer more to their greater wisdom and experience. Subject closed.
Sep-30-19  Pedro Fernandez: It is the second time they play this variation with the same result. According to CG Openings, this variation already was played here:

N Beltrami vs G Andreas, 2005

But this time Liren played 13...Bf5

instead of 13...Qh4 played by G. Andreas.
