|Jun-04-03|| ||Bears092: Mr Wahls is perhaps best known for his radical pamphlet on how to best adress the king gambit. He extensively studied 1. e4 e5 2. f4 Nc6 3. Nf3 f5.|
However, white is still far out on top.
|Jun-04-03|| ||huflix: Mr Wahls is also a big expert for the hedgehog system in the sicilian defense. He often gives lectures about this topic on www.playchess.com. |
|Aug-15-05|| ||Giancarlo: I believe I kibitzed a game involving him once. If I recall, which I do ;-), it was against Kasparov.|
Kasparov wins, but with a smuther mate! Very nice.
|Jan-25-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Matthias Wahls|
|Feb-14-07|| ||AVA: i was researching the sicilian and saw that this guy beat Kasparov in a simul back when he was 2280! Kind of surprised kasparov does simuls with players that high rated.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||DennistheMenace: That was no ordinary simul. It was, I think, Garry's first major clock simul. The opposition were a German Bundesliga team. Chandler also won his game.|
|Apr-20-08|| ||xrt999: I also wrote a pamphlet on how to address the kings gambit.|
On the cover, it says "How to address the King's Gambit" by xrt999
You open the pamphlet and it says:
|Apr-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: "defeater of Kasparov"|
|Jan-25-12|| ||brankat: <On the cover, it says "How to address the King's Gambit" by xrt999|
You open the pamphlet and it says:
GM S.Gligoric used to say that after:
1.e4 e5 2.f4...
2...exf4 was a matter of principle.
|Apr-05-12|| ||Penguincw: Enjoy being POTD!|
|Apr-05-12|| ||backrank: Sadly, he's given up chess completely for years now. He's switched to playing poker instead.|
|Jan-25-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Matthias Wahls!!|
|Jun-06-16|| ||diagonal: Wahls speaks quite frankly why he left his love chess and made money with poker (in german language): http://www.scrkuppenheim.de/meko/me...|
He writes a chess blog (not that known, but with origin work), Matthias Wahls is engaged as chess trainer and even thinking of a comeback in chess..
As example an article on best possible choice of opening repertoire for a player:
and commentating an early game (clock simul) against another retired guy who was recently seen with Naka, So, and Fab :)
