|May-21-05|| ||hongisto24: This kid is 3.5 out of 4 against the big guns in Minneapolis. He just beat Vasquez who is a Phillipino GM.|
|Jan-22-06|| ||EnglishOpeningc4: Wow one of NH's best players and he doesnt even have 3 posts yet|
|Jan-22-06|| ||LancelotduLac: Yes he does|
|Mar-02-06|| ||Joshka: He's on his way to beating Naka in Round 1!|

|Mar-03-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Unbelievable. Nakamura is beaten by Friedel with the Black pieces Nakamura vs J Friedel, 2006. Great!|
|Dec-09-06|| ||thegoodanarchist: Click on the above game link (Nakamura-Friedel) to see my game against Friedel in '03.|
My impression of Josh is that he is a good person and a very gentlemanly competitor.
I wish him the best in chess and in life.
|Feb-10-07|| ||Goran: Josh is great guy and future US star.|
|Feb-10-07|| ||whiskeyrebel: According to the USCF site Friedel has his IM title now; isn't it about time somebody did a bio on him on this page? Please, I wanna know more. Does he have any GM norms yet?|
|Feb-11-07|| ||Goran: Looks like he has two GM norms. First won at The Berkeley Masters Tournament http://chesslodge.blogspot.com/2006... and 2nd he gained at the 2006 US Championship (according to chesslecture.com)|
Here is an older bio but writen in his own words http://www.worldchessnetwork.com/En...

|May-21-08|| ||BIDMONFA: Joshua E Friedel|
FRIEDEL, Joshua E.
|May-21-08|| ||whiskeyrebel: According to the Monroi website Friedel should earn his 3rd GM norm if he earns at least a draw in tomorrows final U.S. championship round (against Shulman).|
|May-21-08|| ||whiskeyrebel: It's a draw. We have a new GM to spearhead U.S. chess on into the new millenium. Perhaps the first ever from New Hampshire? Good going!|
|May-21-08|| ||dx9293: Congratulations GM-Elect Friedel.|
|Jun-09-08|| ||Phoenix: Very strong performance by Friedel in the Vegas tourney, tied for first with 5-1, including 2 draws against Nakamura and Kamsky. Bravo!|
|Jun-12-08|| ||WannaBe: <Phoenix> Friedel did really well in the last round against GM G. Kamsky. I was able to catch the action, late in the game. (Hey, had to watch the Lakers-Celtics game!)|
It came down to minor + pawns vs. minor + pawns, and Friedel was able to draw a very strong GM!!

|Dec-05-08|| ||whiteshark: Grandmaster title approved to him at the 79th FIDE Congress which was held 16-26 November 2008 in Dresden, Germany. |
|Mar-28-09|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <GM Josh Friedel> is also a brilliant, and very humorous, chess analyst/coach.'|
Here are two of his best games which he has annotated on video-- highly recommended!
He beats <GM Nabokov> and <GM Gulko> in these games with ferocious attacking chess.
|Mar-28-09|| ||jessicafischerqueen: It is also well known that a <checked blue flannel short sleeved shirt> strikes fear into the opposition.|
Very nice as well.
|Jun-09-09|| ||BAG: Wow nice Biography chessgames "He is a GM"|
|Dec-03-11|| ||waustad: <jfq>I looked for a GM Nabokov and didn't find one, here or at FIDE. Perhaps the name is wrong. I'm trying to come up with a good joke about Loloita or Humbert squared ... but am coming up empty.|
