Live in the Boston area. My favorite players are Kasparov, Fischer and Tal (not in any particular order).

   Viking707 has kibitzed 112 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-03-22 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
Viking707: Ian is virtually hopeless versus Magnus. Which is probably true of all of the champion's other rivals.Does anyone have a winning record against Magnus?
   Aug-29-22 Firouzja vs Caruana, 2022 (replies)
Viking707: Fabi is at home in St. Loo, and his game shows it.
   Aug-18-22 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2022
Viking707: Another fine example of slow strangulation by Carlsen.
   Aug-01-22 Stein vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
Viking707: Tal may have been a hard drinker, but far worse for his health was his chain smoking. In the end, I believe his health problems kept him from consistently playing the highest level of chess he was capable of.
   Jul-30-22 Botvinnik vs Reshevsky, 1948 (replies)
Viking707: Fischer was always outraged, but I think his complaint was valid. He felt that whenever he was playing a Russian, he was playing against the entire Soviet chess team!
   Jul-20-22 Gligoric vs R Broadbent, 1951
Viking707: Gligoric left the black rook with no tenable place to go!
   Jul-20-22 Geller vs N Novotelnov, 1951
Viking707: Geller, proving once again, he was one of the best grandmasters never to win the world championship.
   May-19-22 Ivanchuk vs Polgar, 2010 (replies)
Viking707: Judit Polgar was the greatest women chess player, who beat many of the best men grandmasters, with elan and grace.
   May-02-22 Mamedyarov vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
Viking707: Carlsen isn't good, he's the best - at least he has been for the last 9 years (World Champion), but he does have days when he is merely human, and makes a mistake.
   Dec-06-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
Viking707: It's fair to say that Magnus Carlsen's long reign as World Chess champion, and the decisiveness of his many wins puts him in the pantheon of "greats" with the best world champions of the past.
