Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu – a modern-day Tal?

12/18/2003 – He is number 25 in the world rankings, but less famous than many GMs behind him. Unjustly so, says our Playchess trainer GM Dorian Rogozenko. "Liviu-Dieter is one of the most imaginative and creative modern players, some of his games can be compared with Tal's greatest achievements." More about this player in Rogozenko's lecture.

Dorian writes: "Tonight, as usual, I have my on-line lecture. I thought that the following subject might be quite attractive, especially for German public, given the fact that Dieter is half German. In fact he is probably the strongest half German in the country, with a rating of 2678, which makes him number 25 in the current Elo list. Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu is less well known to the general public, compared with some of the names behind him on the top 100 list, such as for instance Khalifman (no. 26), Smirin (no. 29), Van Wely (no. 41) or Radjabov (no.45). People mostly connect his name with the success in the World Championship in Las Vegas (1999), when he eliminated Ivanchuk and Shirov.

This year has been especially successful for Nisipeanu, and in my lecture I want to show you why, in my opinion, he is one of the most imaginative and creative modern players. In many of his games there is total chaos on the board, and some of them can be compared with Tal's greatest achievements. During my on-line lecture you will see that many games of Nisipeanu are perfectly suited to entertain the audience and show how beautiful chess can be."
