Woody Wood Pusher
Member since Jun-09-08
My favourite player is Anatoly Karpov. I got a copy of his best games when I was just starting out and it has remained my model for chess play ever since.

I also like Kasparov, and the brilliancies of Alekhine and Tal, but positional play remains the most appealing to me!

Proud to post according to <the way of the wood> as first identified by <<JFQ>>

"I offer this-
<The Way of the Wood> cannot be understood through <the love of logic and reason>. <The Way of the Wood> cannot be judged by normal discursive parameters. <The Way of the Wood> is mysterious... comic, yet tragic... true, yet false... profound, yet silly... I invite all to take a more studied approach to understanding <The Way of the Wood>"

I would like to thank the following for their help with chess analysis and generally making CG a great place to hang out! <JFQ>,<Dom>,<hms>,<elepant>,<pyke>,<OpenDefense>,- <boomie>,<brankat>,<eyal>,<mal>
