|Oct-17-12|| ||Richard Taylor: I think it is significant that he is African-American and it would be interesting to know the percentage over the course of this century of non-European masters or players. Or better to have simply how many more are participating. |
It shouldn't be a matter of comment (negative) but these things can show how "barriers are broken down" and so on.
I can see how it is problematic though. But it is good to see more non-Europeans doing well or even just "giving chess a go"...
|Dec-13-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <Mudphudder> Thank you for underlining the courageous attacking style of Emory A Tate. I am convinced that his fearless attitude has something to do with the fact that Emory A Tate is - side by side with Joshua Waitzkin - one of the supporters of the <Hip Hop Chess Federation (HHCF)>.|
Herewith a video that shows Emory A Tate giving a lecture at an event that has been organized by the <HHCF> and that has been attended by <RZA>, <Rakaa> of <Dilated Peoples> and others: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH3e...
The goal of the <HHCF>: merging Hip-Hop, Chess and Martial Arts, as <HHCF>-Founder <Adisa Banjoko> has put it in an interview that he has granted to the German daily <"neues deutschland"> in 2012, here you can read that interview online: http://www.neues-deutschland.de/art...
And herewith a video that has been produced by <HHCF> on <HHCF>: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irYw... ...
The first tournament that has been organized by the HHCF has been covered by TV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaEL... ... check it out!
|Dec-13-12|| ||Nightsurfer: The kids pf the <HHCF> have challenged <President Obama> to support the <HHCF Ryan Academy> in Norfolk, Virgiania - herewith the two corresponding clips: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr57... and the follow-up production http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEEX... - , and the kids have been supported by their Moms, since the Moms have asked <President Obama> for <" ... please ..."> hosting <"... HHCF to play at White House ...">, herewith the corresponding clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIgi... ... that has been in 2009, but the answer seems to be still pending!|
Hey, Mr. Prez, listen to the kids!
|Dec-13-12|| ||OhioChessFan: <Wyatt: Remember the time Tate kicked the livin' $h1t out of A.J. Goldsby?>|
Only because he borrowed Naka's engine.
|Dec-13-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <OhioChessFan: ... only because he borrowed Naka's egine ...> I do not understand what you mean by posting that: Do you want to hint that <Tate>'s cheated?!|
|Dec-13-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Old joke here, not sure from what page, and kibitzing on Goldsby games has been deleted.|
|Dec-13-12|| ||perfidious: <Nightsurfer>: The remark by <OCF> was definitely a running joke at one time, because <AJ> accused Nakamura of cheating to win the following game: Nakamura vs A J Goldsby, 2003. |
No insinuation whatever is being made regarding Tate's conduct; moreover, he's more than strong enough to beat the spots off Goldsby.
It should be noted that <AJ> also accused at least one far weaker opponent who managed to defeat him online of computer assistance as well (I Sabau vs A J Goldsby, 2003).
|Dec-14-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <Jim Bartle> and <perfidious> I see, that was a running joke back then, I did not know that, thank you very much for the information! :-)|
|Dec-14-12|| ||FSR: <Nightsurfer> Here's an October 9, 2011 comment I made to the aforementioned
Nakamura vs A J Goldsby, 2003 game:|
<Here is the complete list of AJ's losses in the CG.com database: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... As you can see, four of them are Internet games. As shown below, in each of those games, AJ stated that his opponent definitely or may have used a computer to cheat.
A Diaz vs A J Goldsby, 2003:
<Aug-11-10 LIFE Master AJ: ... For all I know, my opponent used a computer. If you check all of White's moves carefully, they match up to a version of Crafy almost 100%.>
S Minero Pineda vs A J Goldsby, 2003:
<Sep-08-05 LIFE Master AJ: White wins, but many of the guys (in this tournament) obviously used a computer. (Whether this one did or not, I am unsure.)>
I Sabau vs A J Goldsby, 2003:
<Sep-08-05 LIFE Master AJ: Obviously a comp user.>
Nakamura vs A J Goldsby, 2003:
<Sep-08-05 LIFE Master AJ: Its interesting to see just how many moves here ... match those of a popular chess engine (for White).
And if you don't think it does not happen ... I just happened to log onto ICC one day. "Nak" and some other player had just finished their game. I don't even remember who won, but I do know BOTH parties were busy PUBLICLY accusing their opponent of cheating!!!>
Of course, when AJ's <own> moves match those of a popular chess engine, that proves only that he's a genius.
A J Goldsby vs V Hodgson, 2009:
<Oct-29-10 LIFE Master AJ: ... Fritz shows NO IMPROVEMENTS on White's play ... none at all.) I am very proud of this fact.>
|Dec-14-12|| ||TheFocus: I bet he doesn't post those 2 games he just lost in Dothan.|
|Dec-14-12|| ||Riverbeast: In the Soviet Union, they called Tal the White Tate!|
|Jun-26-13|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR> Thanx for that most interesting stuff that you have posted on <Dec-14-12>!|
|Jun-26-13|| ||perfidious: <TheFocus: I bet he doesn't post those 2 games he just lost in Dothan.>|
|Jun-26-13|| ||FSR: Good thing he's got that 2200 floor, because he's crawling along it. http://main.uschess.org/msa/MbrDtlT... He actually only lost one game in Dothan, but two in each of the tournaments before and after it (the Montgomery Open and the Louisiana Pro-Am).|
|Jun-26-13|| ||FSR: I wonder if Tate has a lot of things emblazoned with his initials, <EAT>?|
|Aug-24-13|| ||Gazman5: I have a vague memory of Tate defeating a young Caruana in around 20 moves in the New York Masters around a decade ago. Can't seem to find any record of it sadly.|

Maybe the following helps:

|Sep-05-13|| ||Gazman5: <nescio> Thanks, much appreciated!|

A nice idea, but Tate's legend long predates the establishment of the HHCF,
|Sep-05-13|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: Unless you mean that he joined because he is a fighter. But he probably just enjoys the music.|
|Nov-09-13|| ||Conrad93: Him and Larry Christiansen would get along.|
|Nov-09-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <Conrad> You and Michael Falk would get along. |
|Nov-10-13|| ||Conrad93: Magnus Carlsen has autism.|
|Nov-10-13|| ||Conrad93: And probably Fischer, so thanks for the compliment.|
|Jul-08-14|| ||PhilFeeley: <Conrad93: Magnus Carlsen has autism.>|
No, he doesn't:
