Fan of Leko

A draw is a win for both players since each succeeded in avoiding defeat. Draw them all Peter!

Fan of Leko: Ladies and gentlemen, Israel is the spiritual capitol of the world. This is what God calls the navel of the earth in the Old Testament. Why are all of the nations so concerned about Israel? I will tell you why. Because it is God's outpost, and it would be, in a sense, a black ...
   Apr-01-06 Kudrin vs R Douven, 1989 (replies)
Fan of Leko: 36 f7 is definitely not the quickest win- the game drags on till move 51. After 36 Rg4 and doubling on the 7th black can just about resign, and 37 Rg8 is also good.

Fan of Leko: Strange, it looked like Moro made a simple blunder in rapid that he would have easily avoided in blindfold.
   Mar-28-06 Dutch, Leningrad, Main Variation (A87) (replies)
Fan of Leko: <sastm> I am not a Dutch authority but I think the problem is white either gets an early e4 in with more space or doubles the black f pawns by taking on f6. neither is fatal but that's why black often plays d5, c6 and Nd7 before Ngf6. In general when playing the Leningrad ...
   Mar-28-06 Amber Blindfold (2006) (replies)
Fan of Leko: Interesting how often the player that loses in blindfold gets revenge in the rapid games. Happened in 4 of the 6 matches today.
   Mar-25-06 Nakamura vs J W Loyte, 2001 (replies)
Fan of Leko: Rather ordinary game except for 21. Bxh7, which is a neat combination.
   Mar-24-06 G Minchev vs V Velev, 1994 (replies)
Fan of Leko: looks like junk opening...what if black plays 11...h5 and Nh6? I don't see any attack, at least nothing worth the piece.

Fan of Leko: <DiceToThat> 41 Rb5+ Ka6 42 Rb8 Ka7 43 Ra8+
   Mar-22-06 Morozevich vs F Vallejo Pons, 2006 (replies)
Fan of Leko: Losing move is 55 Kf3? (Ra1 draws easily). The difference is keeping the K on f4 prevents black from playing Ke3-f2 long enough for the R to start checking from behind. Vallejo was winning easily himself however until he let Moro underpromote with check, so the result is fair.
   Mar-21-06 F Vallejo Pons vs Anand, 2006
Fan of Leko: White's best bet was probably to try to trade with 28 Qd5. He overlooks 28 Bd4? Nf3+! 29 Bxf3 Qxf5 30 Bxg7 Rxe4+ (Bxe4 Qf2#) and the king is on the run.
