I would describe myself as an average player, a chess enthusiast who occaisionally has produced some blitz brilliancies against much stronger players(>2600) / My rating vares from 1450-1650.

Here is a short 2-0 Game played against WARGAMES on the playchess server. Some have suggested that this is Peter LEKO. If so I got very lucky. His Playchess Blitz rating at the time was 2743 . Played: 5 Sept 2004

> 30 players watched this game live including 7Haar (Blitz 2578) Perhaps I was playing his dog/ wife who knows!? Certainly far from perfect play....but certainly my biggest scalp.

This strange blunder in the opening has been made by even the greatest!

Fischer vs G Thornell, 1964 Players I most admire

...MORPHY (genius)
...CAPABLANCA (the Natural Genius)
...TAL (the Creative Genius &The ARTIST)
...FISCHER (The Greatest Genius)
...KASPAROV (The Dominant Genius)

ianD: Rest in Peace.
   Feb-24-09 Kamsky vs Topalov, 2009 (replies)
ianD: would be amazed if Kamsky gets anything out of this game. 1/2 best he can hope for. What a waste of the white pieces.

ianD: Fritz had it 5.5
   Oct-15-08 Anand vs Kramnik, 2008 (replies)
ianD: 0-0 probably best but probably only good for a draw. Anything else would be a gamble but would be a sign of agression...not entirely whatKramnik is renowned for.

ianD: Hi I e-mailed Jeff Sonas w.r.t. this issue last week. specifically I asked him about Magnus Calsen. This was his reply : "Hi Ian, it is computerized but I haven’t updated it in a few years because it does take some effort to bring up to date. I still plan to but my personal life ...
   Mar-06-08 Ivanchuk vs Anand, 2008 (replies)
ianD: Looks equal but Anand is trying to complicate thuings and possibly force a win. Chucky looks like he has accepted the complications perhaps he is looking for a win and does not perceive any danger. If anyone were to win this game my money is on Anand.

ianD: "Very much alive and still potent - as Cheparinov discovered" N.Short. Nice one.
