I am Eivind Fonn

23 years old (as of september 2008), living in Trondheim, Norway, where I study mathematics.

I am primarily a correspondence chess player. I do play some non-blitz (e.g. 15-30 minutes) OTB games every now and then, but my level of play is significantly lower.

In the grand scheme of things, my style of play probably comes out as "positionally aggressive". Most often, I play with the endgame in mind. I really like endgames with minor pieces and pawns (I guess you could say that's my specialty), so I have an overtendency to exchange major pieces sometimes.

On the whole, when I play "live" games OTB I will adopt a much more careful, positional, quiet endgame-oriented style than if I play slower correspondence games.

I am

the_bb on Gameknot (1803)
The_BB on Schemingmind (1924)
TheBB on Stan's netchess (2388)
TheBB on FICS (1757)

If I'm to name one game that's really _me_, it'll have to be this one, where I'm black:

1. Nf3 d5 2. d4 Nf6 3. c4 dxc4 4. Nc3 Bf5 5. e3 e6 6. Bxc4 Be7 7. Bd3 Bxd3 8. Qxd3 O-O 9. O-O c5 10. e4 cxd4 11. Qxd4 Nc6 12. Qxd8 Rfxd8 13. Be3 Rd7 14. Rfd1 Rad8 15. a3? Rxd1+ 16. Rxd1 Rxd1+ 17. Nxd1 Nxe4 18. Nd4 Ne5 19. f3 Nf6 20. Nb5 a6 21. Bd4 Nc6 22. Bxf6 Bxf6 23. Nbc3 Na5! 24. Ne4 Bd4+ 25. Kf1 Nc4 26. Ke2 Nxb2 27. Nxb2 Bxb2 28. a4 e5 29. Nc5 b5 30. Nxa6 bxa4 31. Kd2 f5 32. Kc2 a3 33.

   Jan-18-15 Jobava vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
TheBB: There's a video with Capablanca speaking on Youtube, however.
   Nov-24-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
TheBB: <In a way, Carlsen's e4 is not really different than Adam's take on it for years. It's like Karpov playing Adam's opening rep.> Adams was providing prep for Carlsen, actually.
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
TheBB: <I know this technically an endgame since the queens are off> Err, what? Never heard this notion. Queenless middlegames aren't that rare.
   Apr-30-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
TheBB: <Houdini says that White is <slightly better> despite having an extra pawn.> “Despite” having an extra pawn?

TheBB: I would like to see someone other than Anand challenge Carlsen, but that would be hard to justify judging from the games here.
   Mar-22-14 Topalov vs Mamedyarov, 2014 (replies)
TheBB: <chessdgc2> It was Aronian-Anand of course. always show the leader(s). You can see the result on the tournament page, it was a draw.
   Mar-22-14 Aronian vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
TheBB: Trent, that is. Presumably not Andreikin.
   Mar-21-14 Svidler vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
TheBB: <chessdgc2> I would suggest numbering your variations properly. I would hate to look back at this game a year in the future and see all the comments being about move 1.

TheBB: <devere> Yep, the WC cycles are supposed (or at least intended) to run over two year periods, the last couple of years being exceptions ultimately traceable back to 2006.
