I'm not getting in the middle of this. Have to get some sleep before the sun crosses the horizon
and that's the problem.. e4 this e5 that.. get ya hand of it.. there's more to life than figuring out the linear path of chess...i was making a joke dumb arse...
Let me get this right. You are criticising for discussing chess on a chess forum? As for making a joke - were you? So hard to tell when its not funny, could have just been random abstract insanity.
insanity..hmmm if i only i was insane.. it would make life so much more easier. but alas.. im just trollin. turning the so called dry linear conversation which is this, into something different.so have a nice day..
Where is my dear friend troller Yereslov?
Speak not his name, saved in hushed tones,
For calling him would start some moans.
The thread would dissolve into rants
And once again cries of infants.
Yet fear him not, he's just a troll
With comments never wise nor droll.
The views he airs on subjects wide
Are seldom right and often snide.
Oh Yereslov, I fear thou art
Just speaking out what's in your heart.
You're neither clever nor witty;
All I owe you is my pity.
i think that Morphy would of creamd Kasparov. Even do i am a huge fan
I was going to post a rant about "would of", but then I noticed the rest of your grammar was atrocious anyway.
is your greatest chess flaw
Well Joey, unless he replies in rhyme, I think we have him nailed on the Moral High Ground.
Will we now hear some tall Tal tales?
Tal has been known as the magician from Riga. He is known for his unorthodox ways of playing chess. A brilliant master who uses active pieces to mate his opponent. Kasparov, Fischer and Karpov often admitted they get confused of Tal's unique style in controlling the board. A risk taker, Tal most of the time sacrifices his minor and major pieces just to open up the defenses of his opponent king, thereby with effective calculations enable him to mate. His games are classical and exciting unlike the one presented by Yereslov which is quite boring and funny to analyze. Even at the brink of serious illness, he beat Kasparov. I admire this master and consider him as one of the greatest chess master together with Fischer of all times.
Durn. Never heard of him.
He was the world champion in 1960 I guess. Watch his famous games in you tube as narrated by Mato. Surely you will enjoy all his games.
Euwe was tall.
1960 was before my time.
Interesting that the clash of creative chess (Tal) and scientific chess (Botvinnik) ended with a win for Tal in the first WCC they played, and then a win for Botvinnik in the second. I think the Tal/Botvinnik WCC was one of the most interesting matchups because their playing styles were so different
Agree, Botvinil was able to take back the championship throne from Tal. Botvinik seriously studied Tal ways of playing before the second match whereas Tal just took it for granted enabling Botvinik to get back the title. Such a wonderful game they did. Marvelous and quite spectacular.
Really wish we'd had a rematch of Alekhine vs. Capablanca. Would be curious to know if Capa could have taken back the crown the way Botvinnik did with Tal
That's when I was born.
