|Jun-26-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Does anybody know where Simonson was born?|
|Jun-26-06|| ||Resignation Trap: Albert C Simonson was born in New York City on December 26, 1914. He died in San Juan, Puerto Rico on November 16, 1965.|
He was a member of the victorious US Team at the Olympiad at Folkestone in 1933.
|Jun-26-06|| ||Resignation Trap: Simonson and Reshevsky were in a dead heat for the last four rounds of the 1936 US Championship. In the last round, Simonson unexpectedly lost to Factor: A Simonson vs Factor, 1936 . Seeing that Simonson was in a losing endgame, Reshevsky drew his game with Kupchik: Kupchik vs Reshevsky, 1936 . Reshevsky thus became the new US Champion and Simonson finished half a point back. At no other point in his career did Simonson have such a fine result.|
|Jun-26-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Thanks. That makes it official--the 1933 U.S. Olympic Team (Kashdan, Marshall, Fine, Dake, Simonson) is the only one so far where all team members were born in the United States.|
|Jun-26-06|| ||Resignation Trap: Here's a photo of the American team at Folkestone, along with with Mrs. Kashdan: http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/... .|
Simonson (standing, middle) and Fine (standing, far right) were both only 18 years old at this event.
|Aug-05-06|| ||brankat: The first game by Mr. Simonson listed here took place in 1914. The same year he was born. Talking about a prodigy!!|
|Aug-05-06|| ||OhioChessFan: LOL <brankat> I was just getting ready to point that out.|
|Aug-05-06|| ||WannaBe: <brankat:The first game by Mr. Simonson listed here...>|
That'll put the other prodigies to shame. =)
|Aug-06-06|| ||Caissanist: Awww, Chessgames deleted it. No fair!|
|Apr-26-12|| ||King Death: < Phony Benoni: ...the 1933 U.S. Olympic Team (Kashdan, Marshall, Fine, Dake, Simonson) is the only one so far where all team members were born in the United States.>|
And it won't be any different for a long time to come with Nakamura and Kamsky giving our Olympic hopes a boost.
Simonson was a no pushover and I bet he'd have gotten the IM title if he'd played most of his chess a few years later.
|Dec-26-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Albert Simonson.|
