Eric Lopez Molina
Member since Aug-14-07 · Last seen Oct-06-10
I was born in Manila, Philippines. My mother's side --the Lopez clan-- all of its male members are avid chess players. I learned how to play chess at age 12. I grew up admiring the first Filipino Grandmaster Eugenio Torre and others like Gary Kasparov, Jose Capablanca, Paul Morphy, Mikhail Tal, Jeremy Silman, Joshua Waitzkin and other grandmasters. I've not been active in chess playing for many years until I enrolled my 8 years old son Paolo (July 2007)in one of our local chess clubs in Santa Clarita, California. He has a great potential to develop into a good chess player because of his photographic memory and analytical skills. So, I felt compelled to hone and rekindle again my long lost chess skills and passion by studying and reading great chess books and of course, I play everyday--and browse Chessgames online database for further chess analysis of great masters. If ever Paolo develops into a formidable chess player, I must at least be equipped with some good skills as one of his mentors and coach. Your site is-- I think, one of the best sites I've ever discovered. I can hardly imagine had internet sites been available while I was growing up, it might have been a big help for me. Nonetheless I want to make sure that my son Paolo will take advantage of this new technology in improving his chess skills to its optimum level. By the way, I'm also a great admirer of Leonardo Da Vinci (the artist, and not the movie). He's a genius of the higher kind (...I wonder if he ever played chess, he could have probably added another piece? or concept?) Apparently...and with good fortune I have again embarked on playing chess and improving my repertoire by reading great chess books, visiting great chess websites like, reading Kibitzes...lots of studying and eventually to play in "meaningful" tournaments together with my son Paolo, a year from now.

Eric Lopez Molina: This game was quite an indication of the mindset of players: attack, attack and forget defense.
   Sep-18-07 Capablanca vs J Corzo, 1901 (replies)
Eric Lopez Molina: A classic endgame that only Capablanca among the greats shows the precision of clear and logical thinking. Here, you overwork and overextend the Knights role-either watch vigilantly the White King's movement or that puny but threatening pawn for queenship. At the end it ...
