    In order to continue to fight for the chess crown, he defected from Russia and left his family behind. Politics actually meant little to him - it was all about continuing his chess struggle.

    What a good idea! Two old people playing a match against each other. We should have more of that in Australia.
    Still searching for Bobby Fischer....
    and fighting against those humourless bureaucrats who are forever lost in the minutiae.

    One of the guys in this article is nice guy outside the chessboard and kicks hard at the board. And when he doesn't beat me, I like his games.

    In one of his recent interviews Karpov modestly (as always) claimed that he has been playing socially with Karjakin quite alot and till recently - has been having very good results

    If it's raining and you got two hours to spare, this video might interest you. Last thursday Boris Gelfand and my former pupil Jacob Aagaard gave a lecture in Helsingør because of their new book DYNAMIC DECISION MAKING IN CHESS.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKISfx11NKI

    Off topic: Jacob might visit me in Melbourne in January and I hope that he will be there on a saturday so I can show him MCC and (hopefully) he will play in the famous ALLEGRO-tournament.

    Thanks, Henrik. I will watch. I have a DVD called "Decision Making in Chess" which is over 10 years old. By Adrian Mihalchisin. Such an important subject for those of us who miss the crucial moments in games....
    And I made my first visit to the MCC last Wed. It's been going 150 years!
