coffee monster
Member since Jan-10-05
My favourite players in no particular order are Kasparov, Ivanchuk, Korchnoi and Yusupov.

My favourite openings are Open Ruy Lopez and Queen's Gambit Declined.

I'm not very good but I enjoy playing at a low level and watching GM games even if I don't always understand what is going on :)

coffee monster: Hey <cu8sfan>, your profile says <Standings after 3 tournaments>, shouldn't it be 4? You're still including Drammen right?
   May-20-05 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
coffee monster: He drew the last round giving him a score of 9.5/12. He therefore won the tournament 2½ points clear of Bruzon! This gives him 12.2 points and I think a performance rating of 2829 (though the site says 2841). Kramnik has just lost 2 games in a row at Sofia, so could well ...

coffee monster: Hermansson's most famous game in the database is probably T Ernst vs E Hermansson, 2002 improving on the famous 21.Qg7 game Ivanchuk vs Shirov, 1996 . This supports the statement in the chessbase article: <I don’t know who’s helping who>. I imagine that Ivanchuk is ...

coffee monster: The only other one I can think of is Tal after his great spell in 1979 (Montreal: +6-0=12, Riga Interzonal: +11-0=6).

coffee monster: <aragorn69> It was a 6 game rapid match which Kasparov won 4-2. He talks about it here: (under the section 'TAKING ACTION ON ACTIVE CHESS') There is a nice picture of them in there tuxedos here: ...

coffee monster: <Ray> Re: Short-Kasparov. Thanks, that makes a lot more sense. Re: Election. I pretty much agree with what you've said. It's ironic that Howard Flight has been demonized for saying that the tories will cut public spending once in power. That sounds like a great idea to ...

coffee monster: Hmmmm. Seems like some of these games were classical after all. FIDE has counted 8 of Ivanchuk's games in the April rating list. That means that on the 18th December he played 2 classical and 2 rapid games against Tiviakov. Most odd and I expect very tiring, no wonder Chucky ...
