Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-11  ekw: The obvious 15.f5 was pretty good. Tarjan showed it in the analysis room; I was walking around after 15.0-0-0 and total strangers were walking up to me and asking me why I didn't play it. I'm surprised that Columbo didn't come up to me and tell me his wife thought it would have won. (Peter Falk was hanging out with Seirawan and Christiansen after several rounds, and was sitting in the front row during this game (I was oblivious).)

  perfidious: <Elliott> Peter Falk was still hanging around some of the big SoCal events in the 1980s? One picture I remember was that of Dennis Waterman (then unidentified, though already a strong master), with Falk standing over his board in the 1970s.

Seeing how you mention poker in your page, I got to play poker with Waterman in 2003 at the $500 pot-limit holdem event in Tunica, Mississippi. It was a rough day-he went out with kings vs aces, just after the same player busted someone else with AA vs KK. The guy broke me with AA vs my AKo shortly after!

Mar-03-15  Howard: There was a picture on the cover a late 1983 issue of Chess Life, of Christiansen and Seirawan analyzing a game from the U.S. Open, and guess who's sitting at the table watching them !

Not only that, there was a smaller picture on that SAME cover of that person talking to Korchnoi.

Mar-03-15  Howard: Chess Life, by the way, said that it was no surprise when Korchnoi "reeled off" six straight wins at the beginning of the Open, but "along the way he got a scare" against Winslow.
