  tpstar: <WTHarvey> Nice quiz! Note the 4th position (Greenfeld-Popchev) has a typo - should be Nh6+ instead. Thanks for the link.

  Sneaky: WTHarvey, your site is great. I see you signed-up, be sure to check out the Sacrifice Explorer, I bet it will save you many hours setting up those pages.
Mar-02-05  WTHarvey: <tpstar> Edited and you've been credited. :-) Thanks ! <Sneaky> Hey, it's like fishing with a fish finder! Everyone ought to check out the Sac Explorer. I used to have the license plate 'Sac & M8'

Greenfeld had a interesting chess career. Mostly hung in around #300 worldwide but shot up to about #50 for a few months. What was that all about?

Mar-02-05  Catfriend: Alon Greenfeld, several time Israeli champ, increases his strength gradually. He won against several strong GMs, and is perhaps the most internationally active among Israelis.
