|Sep-05-07|| ||Benzol: From the report on the 1977 NZ Schoolpupils Championship from the October 1977 issue of the NZ Chess Magazine.|
"Jonathan Sarfati, at 12 years, gave away too much experience to his rivals but had one nice win:
J. Sarfati - N. Dixon, Ruy Lopez: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.c3 d5 9.exd5 Nxd5 10.Nxe5 Nxe5 11.Rxe5 c6 12.d4 Bd6 13.Re1 Qh4 14.g3 Qh3 15.Be3 Bg4 16.Qd3 Nf6 17.Nd2 Rae8 18.a4 Bf5 19.Qf1 Qh5 20.Bd1 Qg6 21.axb5 axb5 22.Nf3 Nd5 23.Nh4 Qf6 24.Nxf5 Qxf5 25.Bd2 Qg6 26.Bf3 Qc2 27.Rxe8 Rxe8 28.Bxd5 cxd5 29.Qc1 Qf5 30.Be3 h5 31.Qb1 Qf3 32.Qd3 h4 33.Qxb5! Rxe3 34.Ra8+ Kh7 35.fxe3 Qxe3+ 36.Kf1 hxg3 37.hxg3 Qf3+ 38.Ke1 Bxg3+ 39.Kd2 Bf4+ 40.Kc2 Qg2+ 41.Kb3 Bc1 42.Qd3+ Qg6 43.Qxg6+ Kxg6 44.Kc2 and White won in 57 moves".
Jonathan any chance of you still having the full score of this game somewhere?
Also what happened to Nigel Dixon?
|Oct-05-07|| ||Ziggurat: Apparently, Jonathan Sarfati has played a blindfold simul here in Singapore today. Unfortunately, I only found out about it after the fact, when I browsed the Straits Times on my way home from work.|
|Oct-22-07|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <Ziggurat> Sorry to miss you. I played about 12 sighted (12-0) then a blindfold with only 6 (still tired from the el-cheapo) overnight flight) scoring +4=2. A young lady called Dawn was the caller; she was pretty good, and has apparently played for Singapore.|
|Oct-22-07|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <Benzol>, thanx, but in my move to Oz, I lost a lot of old game scores. No idea where Nigel Dixon is now after 30 years, sorry. Interesting that he tried a Marshall, when even back then I was known to like it myself for Black.|
|Dec-27-07|| ||RichardT: Really nice games you've got there Dr. Sarfati. I like your chess games and your articles on AiG / CotW. Keep up the good work.|
|Dec-27-07|| ||DarthStapler: Proof that you don't need to be intelligent to be a good chess player|
|Dec-28-07|| ||Benzol: <DarthStapler: Proof that you don't need to be intelligent to be a good chess player>|
Jonathan Sarfati holds a Ph D in Chemistry. Better to be thought to be stupid than to post something like this and remove all doubt.
|Dec-28-07|| ||JointheArmy: < Better to be thought to be stupid than to post something like this and remove all doubt.>|
That was the chessgames.com quote of the day a few days ago I believe.
|Dec-28-07|| ||DarthStapler: If he had a PH.D. in Biology you might have a point. Creationism is bull****, you know that right?|
|Dec-28-07|| ||micartouse: <Darth> I'm sure he's struggling hard to be as intelligent and accomplished as you, but let's be patient.|
|Dec-28-07|| ||Benzol: <Darth> You and I may not share Dr Sarfati's beliefs but anyone who obtains a doctorate in chemistry would have to be intelligent wouldn't you say?
Lets stick to chess and not get into a slanging match about religion OK.|
|Dec-28-07|| ||DarthStapler: Intelligent with regards to chemistry.... which is almost completely unrelated to evolution.|
|Dec-28-07|| ||Jim Bartle: "Lets stick to chess and not get into a slanging match about religion OK."|
I thought it was about science, but maybe that's where the disagreement starts.
|Jan-05-08|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Darth, the origin of *first* life is totally related to chemistry, and is usually called "chemical evolution" and sometimes "abiogenesis". I am very experienced in the chemistry involved, and it just wouldn't go the way the chemical evolutionists hope. E.g. if I wanted to make proteins from amino acids, the last thing I would add is water, because this helps break up any peptide bonds. Yet the hypothesised primordial ocean is full of water. I would also add protecting groups to prevent the wrong reactions, then remove them at the right time. There were no chemists on the primordial earth to do that.|
Now do you have an intelligent CHESS-related comment to make?
|Jan-05-08|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Thanx Benzol and RichardT.
Now has Darth any intelligent comments to make about my chess games or kibitzing?
|May-19-08|| ||Sularus: i guess darth is still trying to understand your comments.|
give him more time.
|Jul-11-09|| ||ILikeFruits: abiogenesis and...
|Oct-01-09|| ||Benzol: <Jonathan> Happy Birthday.|
|Oct-10-09|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <ILikeFruits:> Yawn, abiogenesis is often called "chemical evolution." You need to inform Scientific American then, since their Sept 1978 issue on evolution included an article "Chemical evolution and the origin of life".|
|May-01-10|| ||Benzol: <Jonathan> Do you remember anything about the following game?|
[Event "The Gap Open"]
[White "Lovejoy, David"]
[Black "Sarfati, Jonathan D"]
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Be7 6. Re1 b5 7.
Bb3 O-O 8. c3 d5 9. exd5 Nxd5 10. Nxe5 Nxe5 11. Rxe5 c6 12. d4 Bd6 13. Re1 Qh4

Nxe3 21. Rxe3 Be2 22. Qb1 Rh6 23. h4 Bf4 24. Re7 Bxd2 25. Qc2 Bf3 0-1
I found it in the 1999 February edition of the New Zealand Chess Magazine. An interesting encounter using the Marshall Gambit.
|Jun-07-10|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <Benzol>, yes, that was a fairly early tournament success after I moved to Queensland. If 26.♕xd2, then 26... ♕xh4! forces mate on h1.|
|Oct-01-10|| ||Benzol: Happy birthday Jonathan.
Did you know you shared the day with
Kenneth William Lynn ?
|Jul-16-12|| ||wordfunph: FM Jonathan Sarfati is the author of The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution..|
|Jul-16-12|| ||perfidious: Maybe Sarfati and Jeff Reeve should have a go at it one day.|
|Apr-15-14|| ||weary willy: <FM Jonathan Sarfati is the author of The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution..>
Hardly a refutation - but developing the debate, which is a good thing in itself|
