|Dec-22-07|| ||Petrosianic: The most interesting thing I can think of about Feuerstein, is that he used to hold the record for biggest gap between US Championship appearances. He played in his first one in 1956, and his next one in 1972.|
I think Saidy broke the record recently, though, by playing in one of the US Championship Swisses a couple of years ago.
|Apr-20-10|| ||grasser: Arthur plays at Bergen Chess Mates in Ridgewood NJ Monday nights, and at the Suffern NY Chess club Wednesday nights.|
|Apr-20-10|| ||whiteshark: Any relation to Fred?|
|Jul-15-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Here is Feuerstein's blog:
|Jul-15-10|| ||grasser: Here he is at the club in Suffern NY.
|Jul-15-10|| ||TheFocus: I have been exchanging e-mail with Art lately. Super, super nice guy.|
He is the unofficial champion of Suffern Chess Club, meaning that he won the most tournaments last year.
|Jul-18-10|| ||grasser: <TheFocus> Suffern runs continous tournaments every week. So if you miss a round you get a forfeit. So only the very serious have a chance.
I would say Arthur is still very strong and the best player we have.
You should come and play. We have a great club with nice people.|
|Jul-19-10|| ||TheFocus: <grasser> Thank you for the invitation. If I am ever in the area, I will stop by.|
|Jul-20-10|| ||grasser: <TheFocus> Sure anytime. I also do "Chess Now" in Manhattan and you can be on the show if you like.|
Here is what the show is like. At the 3:50 mark I describe that I must stand trial for offering to teach chess without a permit. I face $1,000 fine or 90 days in jail.
You might expect a charge like that in North Korea or Cuba, but it happened in New Jersey.
|Jul-21-10|| ||TheFocus: <grasser> Looks like you guys are having a lot of fun.|
When I publish my book on Fischer, you can invite me on when I am in the neighborhood.
|Oct-02-10|| ||jmactas: I took lessons with Arthur Feuerstein. He crushed me. It was quite humorous. Forced my knight to h1.|
|Jan-03-11|| ||TheFocus: Feuerstein Beats Fischer!
In the books on Bobby by Wade & O’Connell; Lou Hays; and Karsten Mueller, the 1956 Greater New York City Open, won by William Lombardy, is considered a “lost” tournament. No cross-table was ever printed and very few details are known. We know that William Lombardy won the event on tie-breaks over Dr. Ariel Mengarini and Feuerstein finished in third place on tie-breaks over Edgar McCormick.
Bobby finished in a three-way tie for fifth place with Anthony Saidy and Edward Jackson, taking the “B” prize with a score of 5 – 2 along the way. Only his seventh round opponent is known: Rhys Hays.
In the latest issue of Atlantic Chess News (New Jersey), an article entitled The Feuerstein – Fischer Connection is presented in which the newly found cross-table shows that Arthur Feuerstein beat Bobby in the first round and the other results were:
rd. 2 win vs. Hans, Julius
rd. 3 win vs. Beach, Winthrop
rd. 4 loss to Steinberger, Eugene
rd. 5 win vs. Martinez, M.
rd. 6 win vs. Salome, Eugene
rd. 7 win vs. Hays, Rhys
The article has all the known games played between the two, and a bio and interview with Feuerstein.
This means that Feuerstein actually has an even score against Bobby and Steinberger has a plus score against him.
Would any New Jerseyites like to weigh in on this article?
|Jan-03-11|| ||GrahamClayton: "Profile of a Prodigy" by Frank Brady has the following:|
"My own first close glimpse of Fischer took place during the Greater New York Open Championship Tournament at the seedy and poorly lit Churchill Chess and Bridge Club in January, 1956."
Do any chessgames.com users have recollections of the Churchill Chess and Bridge Club?
|Jan-04-11|| ||perfidious: <TheFocus> Must be I'm getting old-this was 1956, and I got to play each of the first three finishers once in my active career, though only much later.|
Was Edward Jackson E Schuyler Jackson?

|Jan-01-12|| ||GrahamClayton: A slight correction to Feuerstein's biography. He finished =1st with Captain John Kudson of the US Air Force in the 1960 US Armed Forces Championship, with both players scoring 10-1 in the 12 player round-robin event held at Washington, DC. At this time, Feuerstein was ranked as a Specialist Fourth Class, and was serving in the US Army in France.|

"Horowitz’s and Reinfeld’s book How to Think Ahead in Chess really helped me with the openings."

- Arthur Feuerstein (he meant that it is helpful to walk away from the board and come back in the role of observer, seeing the position as if it were new)

|Dec-20-15|| ||TheFocus: Happy Birthday, Arthur!
Very thankful you allowed me to interview you. It was a good article.
|Aug-26-16|| ||perfidious: <wordfunph: "You have to remember to kibbitz your games.">|
The one time we met at the board afforded me but little chance to put this piece of advice into practice: I had to make my final twenty moves to the time check in under a minute.

Is he titled? What year, if any?
