Hello again...This is Angry rook 28 ....Many people have been asking me these weeks why my user name is like that(Angry rook they don't care for the number)...I think it's a good question...First of all I would like to inform you that my real name is Bill and my profile says's just a user name  I found and it's funny because it isn't just a user name such as "brave knight" or others which are also good..Anyway my rook is angry because it usually stays on the square where it had been from the start of the game....

So let's get started...This is an article devoted to Anatoly Karpov a great chess grand master...He had always had a historical battle against Kasparov..Not anything personal but just the fact they were both awesome players made them "Enemies"...They are also called "The immortals". 

Anyway here is what wikipedia know about him :

Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov (RussianАнатолий Евгеньевич Карпов Anatolij Evgen'evič Karpov; born May 23, 1951) is a Soviet and Russian chessgrandmaster and former World Champion. He was official world champion from 1975 to 1985, played three more matches for the title from 1986 to 1990, then was FIDE World Champion from 1993 to 1999. For his decades-long standing among the world's elite, Karpov is considered one of the greatest playersof all time.

His tournament successes include over 160 first-place finishes.[1] He had a peak Elo rating of 2780, and his 90 total months at world number-one aresecond all-time behind only Garry Kasparov since the inception of the FIDE ranking list in 1971.

Since 2005, he has been a member of the Public Chamber of Russia. He has recently involved himself in several humanitarian causes, such as advocating the use of iodised salt.[2]


Even if he is not my favourite grand master I think he is a great , magnificent chess player...He is famous for his tactical shots and his blunders against Kasparov which let Kasparov crush him all over the boardTongue out...That's how chess is.... If you make a blunder you pay for it...It is a law for grand masters...(that's why I used conditional type 1) and here are some pictures if him...

  Hope you had fun...definitely leave me any comments and tell me your opinion about both the article and Karpov ..Take care
