I am still relatively new to chess, I have loved it ever since I was a child, but did not begin to study it until around 2005. I have recently been using f4 and f5 as opening lines for White and Black, but I am open to the complexities of other lines as well. I love to watch good games and I love to hear people's ideas about chess so I can try them for myself and decide for myself. One thing I love about f4 is if anything but e5 or d5 is answered, I can opt for an immediate e4, and I have been working on this line recently. It works really well to stifle my opponent, I have been able to squeeze the life out of my opponent's games with this line. Other than that, I am not a great player, but I aspire to be one one day. Hopefully you have a love for the beauty of chess as I do. I have many favorites among the chess world, but I really like Tal, Larsen, and Morphy to name a few...fantastic warwagers on a board of limitless boundaries. I know, it's only 8x8, but if you thought that, then we don't quite think alike :-)

Paladin88doug: Hey gangstaman, you wrote me a long time back about the Bird...I do play the Bird, and I have been using Tartakower's style to good effect recently, using it earlier to win a great game against an English Opening. I used my own opening against it though, a psychological choice

Paladin88doug: Fritz says that after Bg5 h6 Bxf6 Bxf6 that e4 is not good strategically for White. It likes e3 better. From then, we could consider moves like Rac1, b4 and repositioning the queen. I guess after e4 fxe4 Nxe4 Bg7, Fritz sees the open f-file, bishop on the long diagonal, the ...

Paladin88doug: Why say Tal or Nehtzmedinov lives? Grischuk is an extraordinary and original player who doesn't deserve to be compared to anyone else...I see him play, and I can tell he has his own style.

Paladin88doug: Now I finally watch the game...what a frantic finish! This was a fun to watch endgame!

Paladin88doug: e4 f5 is totally misunderstood. Fritz says only 2. exf5 Nf6 Be2 promises White an advantage. If White chooses other paths, then Black can possibly get the pawn back. Otherwise, Black can also aim for queenside castling and opening the g or h file for attack with g6 fxg6 hxg6. ...

Paladin88doug: Poor Stodie! You gotta feel bad for someone who's only claim to fame on this site is a 13 move loss! lol I know Marshall is the bomb, but poor stodie! :)

Paladin88doug: I had to come see this game. I think that the move Na6 is unrespected by lower class players, although from time to time I play it myself. I think it is a totally different and more aggressive way to handle the opening than Kramnik's Nbd7. But I think both are still playable. ...

Paladin88doug: <refutor: 6. ... Bd3?! is fascinating and since Kramnik played it, I imagine it's not immediately losing ;) i guess it's just a matter of how you want to give back the pawn? > I don't think there is anything odd about this move, and I don't think it deserves a ?! either.
   Aug-25-07 Vaisser vs B A Jacobs, 1987 (replies)
Paladin88doug: The only move that shouts out to you. Bxg6...the point of the puzzle isn't to get the first move, cause I can normally find a tactic easily, considering the puzzles always revolve around tactics, not strategical choices. Those kind of puzzles would probably appear dry to most ...
