|May-08-05|| ||aw1988: Here I am again, accompanied with another amusing anecdote.|
This was played at a Vancouver Open. The game went 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 f5?.
I shook my head and said 'Let's see if you can really use those three pawns to your advantage'.
I lost in 13 moves.

|Feb-14-09|| ||Benzol: From a correspondence match in 1964
F J Yerhoff - O Sarapu :
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 Nxd4 7.Qxd4 d6 8.e5 dxe5 9.Qxe5 Bg7 10.Nd5 O-O 11.Nxe7+ Kh8 12.Bg5 Ng8 13.Qe2 f6 14.Nxg6+ hxg6 15.Be3 Re8 16.Rd1 Qa5+ 17.Qd2 Qxd2+ 18.Kxd2 Bg4 and Black won the ending.
Sarapu's comment - "Attack is not necessarily the best defence."
|Oct-23-14|| ||ljfyffe: "Frank Yerhoff devoured anything related to your 9th-century American wunderkind Paul Morphy that he could get his hands on. Imitating Morphy's dazzling gift for attacking the king, Yeroff in a few short years would become one of Canada's best OTB and postal champions, defeating players with ridiculous ease, as did Morphy." Zehr and MacDonald: The History of Correspondence Chess In Canada.|
|Feb-19-17|| ||GrahamClayton: "Frank Yerhoff was one of Canada's strongest otb and cc players from the late 1930s and 1940s. Born in 1918, he learned to play at the age of 17 and entered his first chess tournament - the 1937 Sasketchewan Championship, where he finished second, but from 1938 to 1945 he placed first in this championship. He placed 4th in the 1940 Canadian otb Championship in Montreal and in 1945 tied with GM Daniel A. Yanofsky for first place in the Canadian Championship held in Saskatoon. Probably his best otb achievement was his 7th place finish in the 1946 USA Open, defeating such players as Santasiere and Weaver Adams. In CC he won the Canadian CC title 4 times: 1939, 1940, 1941 & 1945."|
