Lajos Portisch Interview

Chessbase have published an interesting inteview with Lajos Portisch; you can find part 1 here and part 2 here. One particularly interesting aspect is his suggestion that we should shorten the time limit for the first 30 moves and then have more time for the game later on. This would foster good endgame play, which isn’t the case at the moment. It would also increase the value of surprise and risk taking in the opening.

Needless to say I couldn’t agree more. And here’s a brilliant attacking game by the Hungarian maestro.
