Apologies, I have no idea where it is from. I am nowhere near that strong anywhere. I've played in two rated USCF tournaments in the past 20 years. And I haven't played on queenalice in a long time. My rating on gameknot is about 1900 at present. Of course, like all chessplayers, I am underrated. |
|Apr-04-12|| ||frogbert: but of course! :o)|
|Apr-06-12|| ||crawfb5: The 2265 rating is listed in the game against Garcia, but both ratings are incorrect for the time the game was played at Queen Alice (http://queenalice.com/game.php?id=3...). Obviously, some mistake was introduced into the header info when the PGN was submitted.|
|Apr-06-12|| ||frogbert: crawbf5, thanks for the research. among various mistakes in the cg database, i guess this one isn't entirely vital to correct. my otherwise significant respect for keypusher the kibitzer has not been notably damaged by learning that he isn't a much stronger player than myself. :o)|
|Apr-06-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Speaking for myself, I am in the process of re-evaluating every keypusher post I've ever read or responded to in light of this shocking discovery.|

I usually open with 1.e4, which a great master called <best by test>. Assuming my games average 40 moves, and I am white in half of them, it's safe to say that about 1.25% of the time, I am playing chess as well as it can possibly be played.
|Apr-06-12|| ||frogbert: assuming the great master was right, of course...|

No, really - upload more games. ;>D

|Oct-05-13|| ||keypusher: Thanks all!
<tpstar> Here's one I'd like to upload. I don't have the score, but as our Secretary of State might say it is seared -- seared! in my memory. I've mentioned to you before. It was when I lived in England in the early 90s, and for some reason -- perhaps a cholera epidemic -- I was playing first board for Wood Green in a team match. There was a pub next door, to which my opponent repaired after each move (which he took about five seconds on).
1.e4 c6 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 Bg4 4.d4 ed 5.Nxe4 Bxf3 6.Qxf3 Qxd4 7.Be3?! Qxb2 8.Bc4 e6 (8....Qb4+ would have been good here) 9.0-0 Nf6 10.Rab1 Qe5 11.Nxf6+ Qxf6 12.Rxb7 Qxf3 (hurrah, the queens are off!) 13.gf Ba3 14.Rd1 0-0 (blessed relief, followed immediately by...) 15.Rd3 1-0 (...crushing embarassment). My opponent graciously accepted my resignation and headed back to the pub.
Maybe one of our English kibitzers could tell me who my opponent was so I could upload the game. He was overweight (natch) and had a beard and a +200 BCF rating. Or we could call him NN or my personal preference, <Drunken Master>.
|Oct-05-13|| ||Benzol: Scott I nearly missed you. Sorry about that. Happy Birthday.|
|Oct-05-13|| ||TheFocus: Happy Birthday!|
|Oct-07-13|| ||WannaBe: Oooops, I am late, Happy Boith-Day, Mr. Thomson!|
