Life Master <Brian Wall>

A more positive attitude than another 'Life Master' who lurks around these parts.

  FearNoEvil: Seeing that we are taking quotes from my books. Here are my thoughts related to "Creative Thinkers" from "Formation Attack Strategies". To all the players who are not confined by conventional thinking.

Chess is a thinking sport. Therefore one would think, intellectual imagination and creativity would be widely inspired and revered. These players make chess interesting and fun. They are Chess Inventors whom toil in their laboratory looking for the next “Benko Gambit”, an endless search for a revolutionary opening idea. Sure some of their ideas do not pan out and are quite outrageous. But they all have interesting concepts behind them and lead us to view chess differently.

Many people in the chess community do not share my personal feelings on this subject. They tend to treat these players with contempt. They chastise and ridicule them. They feel these players are ruining chess. However nothing could be further from the truth.

I salute each and every one of these creative thinkers. I also request them to please continue to indulge us with their “Outside of the Box” thinking.

There are so many of these inspirational players and Brian Wall is definitely one of them. Others would include Eric Schiller, Clyde Nakamura, Jonny Hector, Jack Young, Tony Miles, Michael Basman, to name just a few.

  perfidious: Met Brian a long time ago; we played in one of the many Monadnock Marathons.

Thought he was a decent guy anyway, but this is confirmed by the above quote from him.

Oct-28-13  parisattack: Co-authored a really fun book - 'How to Play Chess Like an Animal' with Anthea Carson.

Brian has been a fixture of the Rocky Mountain chess scene for over 40 years.

  morfishine: <perfidious> Is this the same Brian Wall that posted over at GTOD today? His "forum" shows 7 posts over 11 years, or something like that...probably not the same Brian Wall....

Just another Brick in the Wall....

  perfidious: <morf> I would infer from what I have read of this poster's infrequent kibitzes that it is.
Apr-20-16  cwcarlson: This is the same Brian! There's no one like him.
