|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <shor> If that last post was meant for me, what do you mean? |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> <Chess Champ> claims that he was a world correspondence champion up to 2003, but I have no way to confirm it and I have a hard time believing that. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> Just a minor correction
H Berliner was champion from 1967-1971. As for the 11th World Correspondence Champion, it was Fritz Baumbach from 1981-1984. Take a look for yourself:|
|Feb-06-05|| ||shor: in some sites you can send a private message to admins to ask questions and stuff, is there such an option here? |
|Feb-06-05|| ||Benzol: <pawn52> Thanks mate. The Craig Sadler site is very interesting. I got my original info from Tim Harding's book on the first ten correspondence championships. Unfortunately I haven't had the time to play all the games yet. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <shor> You can send messages to the moderators of the FRCEC site, but it isn't "private" because this site doesn't have the features like schemingmind.com has. Btw, do you even know how to play FRC? |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> Anytime, if you need anymore info, holler and I'll see if I can find it. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||Benzol: <pawn52> Did you volunteer to be a biographer.
The only two I know of are <iron maiden> (bless him) and myself.
If it is only the two of us it's going to take a bit of time. LOL.
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> No, I didn't. But now I wish I did. Can I still get into it. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||shor: RFC?
no, I play magic the gathering.
|Feb-06-05|| ||Benzol: <pawn52> I don't know if you still can but I would suggest contacting <chessgames.com> by e-mail to see if it's possible. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||TheEyeOfMordor: Who is the Correspondance Champion now? It has been some time since 2002... |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> I just e-mailed <chessgames.com> about volunteering for the effort. Hopefully I'll hear from them tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm going to hit the sack after I take care of some business on my computer. It's coming up on 2:00 AM Mountain Time. |
|Feb-06-05|| ||pawn52: <Benzol> Btw, I've literally been covered up with so much junk on my computer It's not even funny. But I'll save that story for another day. I am upset that I lost two UCCCT games and my lead in the tournament because of the internet connection problems. |
|Sep-29-05|| ||who: I didn't realize it, but his brief foray into OTB chess includes wins against people like Taimanov.|

ESTRIN, Yakov B.
|May-15-06|| ||refutor: <http://www.ottawachessclub.com/patz... > wow that is still floating around? i figured it would have been relegated to dust in the internet wind by now ;)|
|Apr-21-08|| ||DarthStapler: Estrin's birthday|

|Apr-21-09|| ||whiteshark: "Only by playing gambits will the chessplayer begin to understand that getting active positions, with the possibility of landing combinative shots, will compensate him for the material sacrificed."|
|Apr-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he's just a bit younger than my deceased grandfather!|
|Apr-21-10|| ||wordfunph: In 1946, Averbakh, then a 24-year-old engineering student in Moscow, discovered an idea in the Vienna Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined. It was a neat discovery but the Vienna was falling out of fashion in the 1940s and Averbakh had to wait a long time for an opportunity to use it. The chance finally came against Yakov Estrin, a celebrated opening theoretician, in the 1964 Soviet Championship Semifinals. Estrin walked into the 18-year-old land mine, and the game ended almost immediately on the 17th move.|
|May-22-10|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <wordfunph>, you mean Averbakh vs Estrin, 1964?|
