   Feb-19-10 Topalov vs Grischuk, 2010 (replies)
Stavrogin: patzer2: Good post on the human aspects of this game. Personally I m always - when watching chess - hoping for this kind of game; where it is all about the fight, not just preparation and cold calculation.
   Oct-03-05 FIDE World Championship Tournament (2005) (replies)
Stavrogin: Maybe true. But personally I think his new style (more aggressive) is getting put together properly by now. Do not count the World Champion out just yet. The next man that chjallenges for the title might just get crushed...
   Oct-03-05 Svidler vs Topalov, 2005 (replies)
Stavrogin: Agree. Topalov is the man right now. And I hope he wins, I am just not so certain as some people seem to be. With Morozevich trailing bad my hope for a dynamicplaying winner of the torunament stands to Topa.
   Oct-03-05 Svidler vs Topalov, 2004 (replies)
Stavrogin: If today´s game comes close to this one in terms of intensity - we will have a nice evening of chess!
   Jan-21-05 Morozevich vs Anand, 2005 (replies)
Stavrogin: granite> <Do you think Moro's throwing games like this to keep his ratings down? He might be having more success financially by staying close to the top but not in it and dominating weaker tournements?> That is the most laughable stuff ever on! L O L As ...
   Jan-21-05 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
Stavrogin: Ivanchuk in his present form would have made the top 3 in the ongoing Corus tournament.
   Jan-15-05 Corus Group A (2005) (replies)
Stavrogin: Only premium members... That is just soooo silly! Well, well, no live games means more meaningful timew doing better things. Have a nice day everybody and bye.
   Nov-24-04 Russian Championship Superfinal (2004) (replies)
Stavrogin: Just came back. I can see my analysis at move 13 turned out to be right on. Kasparov obviously shared my opinions. The f6-push came as I predicted. The c-line-battle shaped the battle for quite some time, as did the d4/centre-struggle. This is a good game. As I said, I ...
   Oct-05-04 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Stavrogin: This tournament might be a wake up call for Kasparov. He is the greatest ever, in my opinion. And I am certain he can still be called top3 - PROVIDED he plays! He needs to make up his mind: Active contender for the world title, or a former world champion who still play some, but ...
   Oct-03-04 Kramnik - Leko Classical World Championship Match (2004) (replies)
Stavrogin: I sacrifice like Tal: ? Please take this forum for what it is... in fact, a place for morons. Live with that or go somewhere else - as me myself intend to do now that you have proven it all so very boring. I hadn´´t visited chessgames for some time but thought that the ...
