I live at Hungary, near Budapest. I do not have a rating yet in real life, but I play in my local chess club's team in board #10. I usually choose lesser-known openings like the Ponziani, the 2. Bc4 variation of the Alekhine's Defense, Budapest Defense to 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4, Taimanov or Polugayevsky Sicilian and I'm still learning the Queen's Indian. Sometimes I play gambits, my favourites are: Muzio, Ghulam-Kassim, Von Hennig-Schara, Budapest, Blackmar-Diemer, Gibbins-Weidenhagen etc.

I usually study great players' games for ideas and other things, and as addition to that I would like to share the discovery of lesser-known masterpieces like I Pleci vs L Endzelins, 1939 etc.

There are some "lesser-known" players who also gained my attention:

Emil Joseph Diemer (nevermind the picture:)

Raymond Keene Andre Lilienthal (he won games against 5 world champions for example: Lilienthal vs Capablanca, 1935 and still living and driving a car, at age 99!)

Dragoljub Velimirovic His system is the most useful one (for me).

Katu: Exactly. I can't tell how many games I lost because I was totally won in the opening, but couldn't convert the advantage. So this game is a must-know for me. I learned a lot from it.
   Dec-05-10 T Patton vs E Meyer, 1986 (replies)
Katu: Not one of the usual Sicilian attacking plans...
   Nov-01-10 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
Katu: Bxf7+ I can't tell how many time my opponents fall for this trick in blitz and bullet. But at least 2 of 5 White games of me ends like this way.
   Oct-29-10 Menchik vs G A Thomas, 1935 (replies)
Katu: Weird opening play...
   Oct-18-10 E Pritchard vs J Hempel, 1967 (replies)
Katu: It comes out of the bottle so it's easy to prove it exists.
   Jun-02-10 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 (replies)
Katu: After 25. Rca1 I was totally thinking about Fischer's 23. Rea1 in Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 . Did anyone else noticed the similarity? :)

Katu: What the...? Died? Oh my god, another hess legend... Rest in peace.

Katu: Don't worry Nako, it means nothing! Or everything... Or the solution is just so simple that we surely won't solve it for weeks... Kick me, next time I'll see a traffic light I'll be like: OH NO ANOTHER CLUE THEY ARE EVERYWHERE BRAIN MELTING Aaaahhh....
   Dec-21-09 Smyslov vs V Liberzon, 1968 (replies)
Katu: The position after Black's 11st move is simply artistic.
   Dec-21-09 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 2009 (replies)
Katu: These two seem to like rook endgames.
