Margetic D: <mazetas> His father is a Greek. I know him personally, we played since 1992 for the same chessclubin Graz (Styria/Austria) His name is indeed with a v instead of w: Michael Arvanitakis. Very nice person, very talanted chess player, had in his younger days an attacking play
   Jun-24-22 Radjabov vs Rapport, 2022 (replies)
Margetic D: Pitty for Radjabov,of course.I guess it was the time control (move 39), but it is still hard to believe that at such level the relatively easy win is missed. This was not the first time in this tournament. Rapport missed in totally winning position in Round 2 against Firouzja ...
   Jun-23-22 Nepomniachtchi vs Duda, 2022 (replies)
Margetic D: Very nice, impressive attack by Nepomniachtchi. At this point, Candidates 2022 tend more and more to be a battle between Nepomniachtchi and Caruana.Of course, it is still too early to make any serious predictions, but this is currently to expect. In both cases, if Carlsen was ...
   Jun-18-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
Margetic D: <Messiah> the endgame was komplex, without any doubt, but in the winning position it was almost impossible to miss the win. All sources i checked, put it in similar words. On youtube link, there are even 2 nearly equal thoughts ("i m schocked", "not to believe"....) ...
   Feb-14-22 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1938 (replies)
Margetic D: <Mathematicar: We all know that, overall, Capablanca was better player than Alekhine.> No. What we all know for sure, is that Alekhine defeated 1927 Capablaca in World Championship. What we also know , is that Capablanca congrated Alekhine in a letter. What i personally ...
   Jan-20-22 Reti vs Alekhine, 1925 (replies)
Margetic D: <ilhom84> it is imposible to compare 2 chess world champions which lived in totally different time. During time, chess theory is changing. Opening theory is nothing else, but practice of leading chess players, so it is always evolving. But still, if i should compare their ...
   Jan-19-22 Carlsen vs Giri, 2022 (replies)
Margetic D: Brillant game by Carlsen, no doubt at all. I am in agreement with 15...Nb6 looks quite well for black. Although i m not Catalan player at all (i only learned it in my past with a professional instructor, but never played in tournaments-only in blitz), i also dont think 9.a4 will ...
   Dec-13-21 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994 (replies)
Margetic D: Margetic D: Brillant game, but worth to mention it was a blitz game. Enigma, if Kasparov were ready to play it in a normal 2 hours plus 1 hour game. Kramnik was probably mentally brocked or blocked. 15. f3, f5, 16. Bd1 (maybe also 16. Nb1 as an alternative way to defend), Re8 ...
   Dec-07-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
Margetic D: Dear <chesslearning> , <I've never played in a chess tournament. So I don't know how it works. Can players always adjust pieces like this? If so, why did commentators make such a deal about it? > It is the so called touch-move rule, very common. A player who wants to ...
