I live in Japan and gave nearly half of my life to developp chess in this country. I love chess much. My best rating performance was in Los Angeles with nearly 2500 USCF. As some top Japanese chess players I was expelled from the local Association JCA. My FIDE rating was then delette (In fact it seems it was deletted before my participation in Los). I like the very talented Anand and the very strong Kramnik, I'm very inspired by Morozevich. As for the old master Rubinstein was deep and pure, Capablanca so incredibly natural, Alelkhine fascinating and Lasker always understimated. More recently in a different way Smyslov and Bronstein. I think Carlsen will be the next world Champion before 10 years (But obviously this will not depend on me!). I love classical music Debussy Poulenc and open to any discussion on topics like Art, Mathematic, Philosophy still my opinion will be a modest one.

   Dec-29-07 Russian Championship Superfinal (2007) (replies)
Atkins: 32.Kg1 for Rychagov (hxg h3 nxB h2 Rh1 b1=Q RxQ h1=Q RxR I prefer the R)
   Dec-28-07 J Stevenson vs M Ferguson, 2001 (replies)
Atkins: If Morozevich decide to play this opening I think most of us will learn about it more seriously. May be 17.a4!? was a possibility 17...cxd 18.cxd Ne3 19.Qd4 Nxd5 20.f5 QxBb3 21.fxBe6 fxe 22.Rb2... yeah difficult.
   Dec-28-07 Svidler vs Morozevich, 2007 (replies)
Atkins: <armtwister: 16.Rg2 was a bad novelty> How you can say that? 16.Rg2 is very subtle. The main point of that move is to cover c2 but also to double the rooks on d or g files. It hides a potential Bh3 too. As I said yesterday I'm not convinced by Svidler's plan after Morozevich's ...
   Dec-27-07 Tomashevsky vs Svidler, 2007 (replies)
Atkins: <JohnBoy: <Atkins>: Are you nihon-jin? > I'm not but my wife is. I live in Japan since 1986. I'm happy you enjoyed Shogi game too. This game is deep too. I have a funny story about my own experience. The first time I played this game with my father in law he didn't ...
   Dec-27-07 Morozevich vs Grischuk, 2007 (replies)
Atkins: <Shajmaty: Was 11...Rfc8; 12. 0-0, bxc6 really played? Or was it 11... bxc6; 12. 0-0, Rfc8?> Me again. Yes it was. As I said yesterday in live 12.Bb5 a6 with the threat of Qxb2 is good enought for Black. 13.0-0 axB 14.Qxb5 QxQ 15.NxQ Rc2...
   Dec-26-07 Sakaev vs A Timofeev, 2007
Atkins: This game is quite embarrasing from a theorical point of view. After 12...e5! Black is still one pawn up for ghost on dark square. Even the best 15.Qc3 (15.Qe3? was here obviously refuted)I still prefer Black!
   Dec-26-07 Kasparov vs G Gonda, 1988 (replies)
Atkins: <Terry McCracken: <xrt999: <Terry McCracken: Black's blunder was 32..Nd7??> how many hours do you think Gonda lay awake every night obsessing over this game?>- No idea? I'm sure it wasn't that traumatic;)> It wasn't. At time I said to him that he has at least a ...
   Dec-22-07 M Alvarez Navarro vs I Nyzhnyk, 2005
Atkins: 15.Nf5+ looks obviously better.
   Dec-18-07 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
Atkins: <seeminor: 29. Rbf7?? is a horrible move by fischer, destroying his own great defence. 29.Qd7 was necessary to aim at g4.> The opening looks here just too bad <seeminor> On your 29...Qd7 there is 30.Nh4. The idea of Rbf7 is then after NxNh4, f3. No time for that. Spassky ...
   Dec-16-07 Kamsky vs Shirov, 2007 (replies)
Atkins: Kamsky played very strongly all the World Cup. But to see Shirov coming back to his best was a pleasure too.
