Hello chess fans, just a thought growing up learning chess. I followed the great player Bobby Fischer studying his games using the same openings and moves without understanding why. As time has pass I've become fond of the play of Botvinnik and Kasparov and A.A for their understanding and how they calculate moves. So is this common most chess players in developing a style of play and has it worked for you
Kasparov, I fell in love with him after watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVcpelqT_Dw
Why? (I hate his huffing and puffing)
Gelfand. Old guy got the moves
bit obvious because of my nickname but its TAL TAL TAL
why is easy he brought courage energy vision an insatiable love of attack and made everyone he played learn to defend
In all fairness, I am my favorite chess player, for reasons that transcend chess. I guess I'm partial.
