Thank You, IM Day. I see against 5. Bd3, that 5. ...g6 has been tried to scamble the eggs a bit...
|Jun-20-09|| ||IMlday: I agree 5..g6 is way more fun. Liam Henry-Day Hart House 2008 went 6.Nc3 Bg7 7.Nb3 Qc7 8.Bd2 Ne7 9.0-0 0-0 10.f4 f5 11.e5 b6
(11..d6! sez silicon but the diagonal strategy targetting g2 very sharp.)

Go get 'em, Javert.

Very nice and fun game; thanks for sharing!
You are a 'chess thinker' in the cast of Nimzo, Breyer, Suttles, Miles - An annotated tome of your games would be a great read/study.
|Jun-27-09|| ||Ed Trice: Anyone going to be at World Open this year?|
|Jun-27-09|| ||timhortons: <IM Day> Kovalyov is obviously the strongest player Quebec has now, i heard the reson his name is still attach with argentina is that he cant afford to pay the chess federation transfer fee, i dont know how much this cost, maybe more than a thousand.|
Is it his personal responsibility to pay it if he want to transfer or canadian chess federation or quebec chess federation can help him in these? I hope he can play in canadian team in the next olympic.
looks like he dont care to transfer to canadian chess federation and nobody is also welling to help him shoulder the cost.
Mine is just a kibitz, a personal opinion and observation on how things go here.
I am actively following the montreal chess scene, observing its tourneys and getting familiar now with the faces of our chess masters.
|Jun-27-09|| ||IMlday: <parisattack> Thanks. You certainly have me in illustrious company!
<EdT> I played July 1-4 in NY '67, '68, '69 and Philly '77, '79, '80, '85. Sharing first in '68 and '80 meant I about broke even on total overall expenses. Nowadays the grueling pace is a bit intimidating.
<timhortons> As I recall FIDE charges about $3000 or so to change a national representation for a GM, way too much in my opinion but they don't want countries "buying" Olympic teams.
GMs Kovalyov and Sambuev still have old nationalities listed even though they've lived in Canada for quite a while. Our chess federations are pretty shoe-string operations. IMs Gerzhoy and Samsonkin also had this nationality problem. On the positive side it let's an event like the Quebec Invitational be considered "International" for norms without much transportation costs for the "foreigners". I think IM Castellanos lives in Montreal but officially counts as Spanish.|
|Jun-27-09|| ||timhortons: <IM Castellanos lives in Montreal but officially counts as Spanish.>|
Well now its clear, CIQ has an international flavor but actually all those masters are living now in Canada:)
Thanks for answering.
|Jun-28-09|| ||Ed Trice: <IMlday> I sent my check to Billy G in early June, but my USCF membership lapsed at the end of May, unknown to me at the time. I just rejoined last week, and he still hasn't cashed my check as of yesterday. I might have to be a last minute entrant.|
The good news is, I can get there in about 50 minutes commuting.
|Jun-28-09|| ||Ed Trice: So <PinnedPiece> is none other than Rafal Furdzik, imagine my surprise.|

What a wacko.
This is my third post following up your "Imagine my surprise" kibitzes spread around CG.com, Ed. Hope there's not too many more.
Anyway, you are certainly proving that you are willing to engage in a campaign of disinformation. I haven't a clue who or what this check you linked to is all about, nor do I even care.
Yet I bet whatever amount of care is there, it beats by a hundredfold the care anyone else has anywhere.
I can only speculate that you are hunting phantoms in some sort of haunted delusional fog.
Snap out of it, if that's at all possible for you anymore.
|Jun-28-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Wow, I was way off, PP. I was thinking you were Alexis Skye.|
|Jun-28-09|| ||PinnedPiece: <JFQ> Maybe I am too, though.|
|Jun-28-09|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <PP>
Did you see my post on <Alekhine> page?
The required Email has been sent to <Mr. Freeman>.
|Jun-28-09|| ||IMlday: This past month I've been caring about the eight ducklings and twelve goslings growing up down by the river. Hanging out with them feels rejuvenating. I'm sort of learning to use my first digital camera. It has lots of buttons. I distract them with corn so the zooming doesn't freak them. Corn hereabouts is cheap: 59c for a 400 gram bag. Just add ducklings and it's my ticket to a world of wonders. |
Compared to the ducks, everything else seems rather bemusing.
Imagine your surprise? Imagine my surprise. I had to grow up with Bobby's cracked icon status. He said this symmetrical King's Indian position is better for Black. White to play has to commit himself first, ergo: Zugzwang! He said he'd bust the King's Gambit. That wasn't true either. But it made 1.e4 e5 2.f4 more surprising when he played it himself later. Imagine Larry Evans' surprise. Then there's supposedly a mate in five that Petrosian doesn't play against Keres in 1962. Check the Sports Illustrated diagram: No mate in five: Not remotely true. If this Fischer guy tells you that these are not the droids you're looking for, then grab those droids fast.
Bobby's actions also surprised.
Win all the games in the U.S. Closed~ no problem. Show up at some weekend Swiss instead of the Piatigorsky Cup. Normal. He'll play Havana but can can't can't can can't go, but plays anyway long distance. Souse 1967 had four surprises: he played! he withdrew! he reappeared! he withdrew again! Surprise, surprise, surprise. When I met him in person, introduced by Benko at the Hotel du Lac in Lugano 1968, I thought he was set as U.S.A. board one. Instead, surprise, he vanished.
After a while being surprised by Bobby became normal; the only predictability was that whatever was expected would be the opposite of what would happen.
Bemusing now it is to hear young confident predictions of what Bobby would or would not have done in such and such situation.
|Jun-28-09|| ||chancho: <IMDay> I found this link with some interesting posts that you wrote:|
|Jun-28-09|| ||Ed Trice: On the JessicaFischerQueen page today, she had a link "courtesy of PinnedPiece" which pointed to an article <PinnedPiece> wrote on GrandmasterCorner.com which is owned by Rafal Furdzik.|
Don't worry, I took a screen shot of it, before you asked her to remove the link.
So, do you also deny that was posted on her forum?
Do you deny having written that on GrandmasterCorner.com?
|Jun-29-09|| ||PinnedPiece: <Ed> ask IMlday to delete that post or its going to embarass you forever.|
You've made a provable error in judgement.

|Jun-29-09|| ||Ed Trice: P.S. A copy of My 61 Memorable Games was selling for $500 on Craig's List. I emailed the seller who said he sold it in 20 minutes, then Craig's took down his post.|

|Jun-29-09|| ||PinnedPiece: The person who typed this is not Rafal Furdzik. The person who owns and kibitzes under the account name "PinnedPiece" on Chessgames.com is not Rafal Furdzik. I know what my crime--pinning YOU down---is, what's his crime?|
It doesn't even matter, Ed and I don't know why I think I have to correct this huge blunder you have made. On the <JFQ> page she has credited about 150 people with providing her various links. Is it your contention that each of those persons wrote the article or created the movie that they sent her the link for? You cannot be that rock dumb, so whats the real game you are playing here?
No don't even bother to answer.
