My name is Markus Jakobi, I am 54.5 years old and living in Wiesbaden, which is the capital of Hesse and a town 40 kilometres away from Frankfurt/Main in Germany. I am playing mail chess since I have been 14.5 years old (+21, =43, -18), but from 1982 until 2015 without computer assistance. My mail chess rating is Elo 2082 from 38 evaluations and my favourite chess players are Francois-André Danican Philidor (France), Wolfgang Uhlmann (Germany), Lev Polugaevsky (Russia), Robert James Fischer (USA), Anatoly Karpov (Russia), Stefan Kindermann (Austria/Germany), Thomas Bohn (Germany), Garry Kasparov (Russia), Stefan Meyer (Germany), Uwe Kettner (Germany), Zdenko Kozul (Croatia), Igor Khenkin (Russia/Germany), Dirk Emmerich (Germany), Vladimir Kramnik (Russia), and Elisabeth Paehtz (Germany). I consider Garry Kasparov, Robert James Fischer, Anatoly Karpov, and Francois-André Danican Philidor as the four strongest chess players in history. My favourite openings with white are the Volga-Benko Gambit, King's Indian, English, Modern Defense, Queen's Gambit Declined, Chigorin, Nimzo Indian, Dutch, Queen's Indian, Queen's Gambit Accepted, French, Semi-Slav, Modern Benoni, and Ruy Lopez and my favourite openings with black are the Sicilian, French, Volga-Benko Gambit, Semi-Slav, Nimzo Indian, King's Indian, Giuoco Piano, Caro-Kann, King's Indian Attack, Queen's Gambit Accepted, Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, Queen's Indian, Ruy Lopez, Van Geet Opening, and Modern Benoni.

   Sep-20-22 Niemann vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: This was a clear win for Hans Moke Niemann. The world champion Magnus Carlsen never found any counterplay in the occuring position and therefore resigned! If I am correct, his game may be the refutation of 1.-,Nf6?, which was a long time under a huge cloud. Now it became ...
   Sep-12-22 S Bengtsson vs N Benmesbah, 2019 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long thinking, the unknown (at least to me) French WIM Natacha Benmesbah finally found the mate in 2 moves with the nice queen sacrife 20.-,Qxc3+! 21.bxc3,Bxc3#. This is exactly the way how to play the Sicilian Sveshnikov with the black pieces!
   Sep-07-22 Carlsen vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: Yesterday I called Hikaru and Jan Gustafsson, my compatriot and a second of Carlsen. We all three agreed, that the only evidence, if Niemann was cheating in his game against Magnus, will be a bullet match (1 min. each + 1 sec. increment per move) between Magnus Carlsen and
   Sep-05-22 J Geske vs S Ernst, 2011 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long thinking, the strong Dutch grandmaster Sipke Ernst finally found the mate in 3 moves with the very nice queen sacrifice 27.-,Qh1+! 28.Kxh1,Rh3++ 29.Kg1,Rh1#. This is the reason, why I always love Mondays.
   Jul-11-22 M Womacka vs G Wolf, 1997 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, my compatriot GM Mathias Womacka finally found the mate in 2 moves with the nice rook sacrifice 34.Rxg6+!,fxg6 35.Be6#. White played a very interesting sideline against a - I guess - with the main lines of the Sveshnikov/Chelyabinsk variation ...
   Jun-18-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: <Czx> Hikaru Nakamura spoiled his enormous talent by playing thousands of online blitz and bullet games, which led to superficial and tactical-based decisions instead of deep strategical understanding of the positions. This is the reason why giants like "the ...
   Jun-14-22 E N Cooke vs A Turzo, 2001 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long thinking, the unknown (at least to me) Hungarian IM and former junior champion Attila Turzo finally found the mate in 4 moves with the very nice rook sacrifice 39.-,Rxh3+! 40.gxh3 (40.Kg1,Qf2#),Qf3+ 41.Kg1,Qf2+ 42.Kh1,Qh2#. If you seek a full game and do not ...
   Jun-04-22 V Fedoseev vs M Matlakov, 2021
Damenlaeuferbauer: <whiteshark> You can NEVER stop the development of opening theory! It is not a great surprise, that a player of Fedoseev's calibre found a novelty (maybe an improvement?) on Carlsen vs. Nakamura, rapid 2021, which fizzled out (too?) early in a draw. Unfortunately, ...
   May-27-22 Spassky vs Geller, 1959 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: This game shows, how incredible strong Boris Spassky was at the end of the 1950's and in the 1960's. Maybe from 1964 until 1970 he was the strongest player in the world - despite Robert James Fischer. It would be a big mistake to judge Boris Spassky's playing strength just
   Apr-11-22 P Rejto vs E Schiller, 1983 (replies)
Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, my old friend Eric finally found the mate in 2 moves with the very nice exchange sacrifice 37.-,Rd3+! 38. Bxd3,Rxd3#. I like his fresh idea in the opening with the St. George-Ruy Lopez hybrid!
