|Jun-10-14|| ||IFNB: LOL Why are you posting bullet skittles games?|
|Jun-10-14|| ||bugabay: It's his choice, it's his page, it's his games, he can do whatever he want. Besides, Life Master said they upload his losses and not his wins.|
|Jun-10-14|| ||bugabay: It's his games and not yours.|
|Jun-10-14|| ||IFNB: <bgabay> Again, that's irrelevant. But thanks.|
|Jun-10-14|| ||Jambow: LMAJ not sure I ever seen you had Jewish ancestry although the surname Goldsby made me suspect that might be the case. I have never observed direct anti-Semitism on a personal level but it seems alive and well globally.|
No matter I haven't confirmed any Jewish ancestry but have a couple in my family tree that seem likely. My maternal grandmothers surname was Traum and they fled to Hungary and then the USA before the onset of WWII. They had a very olive skin tone also so maybe? Then we had Golden's on my paternal fathers side and they had near relatives with almost all Jewish sounding names like Reuben etc...
Not that it matters but it is very interesting so shalom.
|Jun-25-14|| ||Domdaniel: <Jambow> I suppose you know that 'Traum' means 'dream' in German and 'wound' in Greek?|
This is also interesting.
Ancestry is less important than some people think.
|Jun-28-14|| ||Jambow: Dom I think I probably agree with you that ancestry is not so important as it is interesting. I'm guessing if your on a train bound for Auschwitz, or on slave ship departing from Liberia it might seem very important though.|
Traum is the root of our word traumatized or in a dream like state, so yes thanks I did know it was dream in German but not the Greek.
|Jul-16-14|| ||James Demery: AJ is a Lifemaster the same thing as a NM is today?|
|Jul-30-14|| ||Garech: AJ - have you read "Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual"?
I'd be interested in your opinion on it, if so. I've heard that Dvoretsky is such a great trainer that he can bring 2200 players up to the level of Grandmaster. This alone is enough encouragement for me to be thinking about buying the book.
|Aug-03-14|| ||James Demery: AJ doesn`t post here anymore.|
|Aug-05-14|| ||Garech: Oh - when did that happen, and how come? I see he posted on 07/06 above, has something happened since then?|
|Aug-10-14|| ||ketchuplover: I hope he's safe and sound|
|Sep-06-14|| ||Jambow: AJ is ok I spoke with him, he is done with this site.|
|Sep-14-14|| ||nmatta: AJ asked me to post a link to his blog on here.
Here are his games from the Louisiana State Championship where he took clear 1st place with a score 6/7 (2 draws):
|Sep-30-14|| ||Garech: Oh, I think AJ is not allowed to post in games anymore - it says as much in his profile, anyway.|
|Oct-04-14|| ||Ke2: Searching For AJ Goldsby... This controversial and brilliant figure has been absent for now 4 months... Will he ever return?|
|Oct-05-14|| ||Jambow: According to him he is finished here. Dispute with the site founders/admin if I understood him correctly. |
Honestly I think they do a great job and really are a lot more tollerant with some behavior here than I would be, which is much preffered over a draconian approach.
Anyway LMAJ has moved on.
|Oct-05-14|| ||chancho: He visited yesterday.
User: LIFE Master AJ
Hope you are well, Aj.
|Oct-08-14|| ||dernier thylacine: I am just an "amateur" and I do not know the competition chess community, but I am very happy that exists at least and at last a good and complete book about the La Bourdonnais -Mc Donnell encounters, the one of Cary Utterberg of course; and as Utterberg included analysises of A. J. Goldsby, its already enough for me to be thankfull to this master;|
I confess I do not mind much about the controversial discussion here: Jew or not Jew, antisemitism or not, and I have no intention to study this question by reading all the earlier kibitzes; I suppose that chess is HERE a more fitting topic.
Of course I was however upset when I heard in the past about the attitude and the declarations of Alekhine and much later Fischer, but this would introduce another debate;
being nor Jew nor American but just a poor Frenchman, I apologize for my bad english, I just hope it's still possible to understand it approximately!
|Jan-14-15|| ||Domdaniel: <Garech> My opinion: Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual is the best endgame book I've ever seen, by a wide margin. His analyses are very thorough, and he has a knack for finding examples that stick in the mind.|
I suspect that AJ would agree.
|Feb-12-15|| ||wordfunph: happy birthday, AJ!|
|Feb-12-15|| ||chancho: Happy Birthday, Mister Goldsby.
|Jun-25-15|| ||ketchuplover: Saw A.J's comment on the passing of Walter Browne a few minutes ago|
|Feb-12-16|| ||Sally Simpson: Happy Birthday A.J.
Hope all your worries are behind you.
|Feb-16-18|| ||mistermac: Go, AJ. We love ya. Sui generis!|
