My ECF rating was about 120 several years ago but I've only recently taken chess up again. My favourite players currently are Grischuk and Morozevich.

   Dec-04-13 Kasparov vs Polugaevsky, 1978 (replies)
david9000: If 18. Qg7 Qg6 19. Rxe7+ Nxe7 20. Qxh8+ Kd7 21. Rd1+ then Bd5- (which I hadn't seen- too busy thinking about bad king moves and checkmate..)
   Apr-16-13 Bronstein vs Larsen, 1964 (replies)
david9000: <Everett> if 25. dxe6 Qf8 26. Nxf6 Qxf6 27. Rf7 can't black play Qd4+? In Volume IV of OMGP, Kasparov gives 25. dxe6 Qf8 26. e7 Rf1+ 27. Kh2 Qf5! 28. Qxf5 Rxf5 and says it looks like Black just remains material up, but Bronstein later discovered the tactic 29. Rxa7!! ...

david9000: It was very magnanimous of Aronian to praise Radjabov's defensive skills right at the beginning of the press conference today, in spite of the blunder. I'd like to see him win the candidates - aside from being a superb player he seems like an amiable person.
   Feb-06-13 GRENKE Chess Classic (2013) (replies)
david9000: presumably double round robin?
   Jan-28-13 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
david9000: A masterclass given by Ivanchuk at Gibraltar is available to watch online at the tournament website- it's very entertaining. He seemed disturbed when the subject of the World Championship was raised though, and it's clear he has a history of being distracted by the pressures which
   Aug-19-10 Karpov vs Huebner, 1973 (replies)
david9000: Kotov said of this game - "One of the best games of the tournament was Karpov-Huebner from the second round. Although it was drawn, the presence of fine strategical concepts, clear tactical ideas, blows and counterblows made this game an original model of creative chess. We judges
   Aug-14-10 Karpov vs Smyslov, 1972 (replies)
david9000: from the final position..42...Nxb6 43. Nxf6 and now 43...Nxc4 cannot be played because of Ne8+! (is this the aforementioned knight fork?)
   Jun-28-10 Karpov vs Andersson, 1969 (replies)
david9000: Karpov plays Nf1 four times in this tense and elaborate Spanish game!
   Mar-22-10 Smeets vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
david9000: beenthere240 - I'm not sure whether Keres popularised the RL Breyer but Spassky was an expert in these lines. At Gibraltar recently he analysed a game with Stuart Conquest in this variation.
   Jan-07-10 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 (replies)
david9000: This is in Staunton's book "The Laws and Practice of Chess" where he comments "how fine is all this! The study of a few such games is almost a liberal chess education." [MUG, at first I thought 10.Bxd5 could be met with just ...Nxd5 11.exd5 e4 but here it seems McDonnell's Qd2 ...
