About Michael Adams

Michael Adams is an English chess Grandmaster. His highest ranking is world No. 4. He has achieved good results in World Championship tournaments. He is a several time World Championship Candidate, he reached the semifinals in 1997, 1999 and 2000. At the 2004 FIDE Championship, he reached the final, narrowly losing out to Rustam Kasimdzhanov in the tie-break games. He is also a seven-time British Chess Champion.


Adams’ nickname is The Spider. He weaves a web around his opponents and likes them to beat themselves. Adams, who is happy to call himself a positional player, goes along quietly, letting his more ostentatious opponents make the running, then when they overreach themselves, he strikes. Careful, well-drilled, practical, strong defense. He doesn't go looking for flashy solutions. He is calm and inscrutable at the board - in stark contrast to the emotional Kasparov, whose face contorts when the going gets tough.
