Antonio has some very incisive analysis of the best games in history!

I regret I don't follow the latest chess games.  And it shows...

Lately he's been covering the 1959 candidates tournament, which was won by Tal. Some very good games! He does show some more modern games as well, though. He'll soon show us the world championship match between Tal and Botvinnik, which I'm looking forward to seeing.

Forgive my asking, but aren't those games very thoroughly evaluated by now?  Or is it the presentation?

It's the presentation. It's more fun to watch than to study them in a book.

I think that is a difference.  I prefer to watch at my own pace, as in a book.  The diagrams are the same, just not the breathless excited narrator.

Well, I'd never describe Antonio as either breathless or excited! LOL

Well, I've never heard him speak.  But few chess experts I HAVE heard online are David Attenborough (sp?) either.

Vincent Keymer finished ahead of more than 50 Grandmasters in the GRENKE Open chess tournament. The teen has earned a spot in next year's Classic, where he would face the world's best players.

Vincent had 7 wind, 2 draws and no loss! And that against some of the best chess players in the world. I'd never heard of him until today, but I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far. Here's Antonio Recic with one of his games:

I lost a game to a 12 year old in the University chess club, and then the best player in the club lost to him.  It is AMAZING what young players can create in their minds.  I "learned" openings, he "understood" them.  There is a difference.

Yeah, a big difference between the two! I've heard it said that if you study openings, you learn openings, but if you study the endgame, you learn chess.

If I can get to the endgame a pawn up, I almost always win.  I learned THAT early.
