[what is this?]
|Narcis Vinyoles was born between 1442 and 1447. He died in Valencia in 1517. He was a politician and writer and belonged to a family of lawyers. In 1495, King Ferdinand recommended him for the position of 'Justica Criminal.' He spoke Catalan, Castillian, Latin, and Italian. He was married to Brianda de Santangel, niece of the banker who backed financially the first expedition of Christoper Columbus. He was a co-author of the Catalan poem 'Scachs d'amor' written around 1475.|
|May-19-03|| ||evertoexcel: The first loser in modern chess history. Maybe I should start a chess club called "Vinoles' Avengers" for weak novices like me :) |
|Jun-15-04|| ||offramp: Eveb if he could catch up on theory Sr Vinoles would probably be beaten by all the major players of today. He never took his chess seriously. |
|May-28-06|| ||jackmandoo: Just think, during the time this guy was around America didnt even exist, there wasnt anything there but trees and grass as far as the eyes could see, nothing else. I dont even think the Indians were invented yet. Thank goodness for Christopher Columbus, without him we would be in big trouble right now. (Because we couldnt find America)|
|May-30-06|| ||jackmandoo: We should have a day to commemorate that man, we should call it, "Christopher Day".|
|Dec-05-06|| ||2021: <jackmandoo> We have Columbus day.|
|Dec-06-06|| ||2021: <jackmandoo>Plus, I don't see any point talking about Christopher Columbus as you can see on the bottom, "This forum is for this specific player." But, I guess you can talk about whatever you want.|
|Dec-06-06|| ||technical draw: After this game the first PGN collection was made. It contained, well, one game. Vinyoles then wrote, "My Great Predecessor".|
|Oct-30-07|| ||lopium: "He was a co-author of the Catalan pem 'Scachs d'amor' written around 1475." The word pem should be poem I think. Chessgames.com may you check it?|
|Aug-25-08|| ||ravel5184: My hero!|
|Aug-26-08|| ||whiteshark: 'In Vinyoles vis vitalis' as the Romans already knew.|
|Jan-10-10|| ||The Famous Chess Cat: <technical draw> ROFL!!! Kasparov references...|
|Aug-16-10|| ||Lil Swine: the way that vinyoles played made it look like id probably beat every one back then at chess|
