An Englishman
Member since May-31-04 · Last seen Dec-15-18
I'm a long since retired former master (but never particularly good) whose opening repetoire consisted of the English, Nimzo-Indian and Caro-Kann. I now pursue a career in film, theater and television as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, director, producer and Web content creator.

   Dec-15-18 L Fernandez Siles vs Antonio Hernandez, 2008 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Not even close. Amazing combination.
 
   Dec-14-18 H Wolf vs Von Bardeleben, 1900 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Given that Wolf was one of the great anvils of the era (i.e., he took severe poundings from the great players), it's nice to see him play such a fine attack with simple yet strong moves like 15.Qe3 and 19.Qh4. Starting with 11.Qe3, he makes one threat after ...
 
   Dec-12-18 Aronian vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Still can't figure out what White obtained in return for granting Black an outside passed pawn.
 
   Dec-11-18 Hoang Thong Tu vs J Gonzalez Garcia, 2008 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: The most remarkable move of the game was 13.Rf3. Black had multiple opportunities to win the Ne5 and passed on all of them. Did that Knight remain poisoned every single time? 13...fxe5; 14.Bh4!? (14.fxe4!?) 14...fxe5; 15.fxe5,Bb8; 16.Rxf8+,Kxf8; 17.Rf1+!? ...
 
   Dec-10-18 Nimzowitsch vs L Steiner, 1927 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: 3.b3?!,d4! already puts White in some difficulties against a player in peak form. 3.Nf3 was required.
 
   Dec-09-18 H Winfridsson vs K Zeier, 2015
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Yet another wandering Queen gets checkmated (17.Qb7,Rfb8).
 
   Dec-07-18 Stephen Charmy Ognalaga vs David Conhoff, 2018
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: White has absolutely demolished the Steinitz Defense in recent years, but Black keeps on playing it. And if you can checkmate the White Queen on the 11th move, perhaps it's worth the losses.
 
   Dec-06-18 Petrosian vs Geller, 1961
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Petrosian earned a handsome living vs. the King's Indian Defense--unless Geller played Black. According to the CG database, Geller never lost, and won twice.
 
   Dec-06-18 S Slipak vs T Gibson, 2008 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: I didn't. The first move was hard enough, but the second and decisive move proved impossible.
 
   Dec-04-18 F Grafl vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Found this in our Opening of the Day for 4 Dec 2018. Black's Knight sacrifice on the 12th move required over 100 moves before he cashed in. The entire game has much of interest if you like endgames, but the position after 25...Qxh2 looks esp. picturesque: Black ...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <Deus Ex Alekhina>, since I can't seem to post anything at your forum, I'll have to reply here with four simple words:

Don't Forget The Curries!

Oct-08-09  Deus Ex Alekhina: Hullo,English! Sorry, old chap, but I don't have a forum - it would be about food (of course), if I did. What's your favorite feeding hole in Piccadilly Circus? Toodles.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <Deus Ex Alekhina>, I'm afraid you've caught me out--it's been so many years since I lived in England that I've forgotten the lyrics to "You'll Never Walk Alone." Not that I haven't thought about a return some day, but frankly, Brick Lane is probably more my sort of eating.
Oct-16-09  LIFE Master AJ: You are welcome. (And my little comment here gets my own award for "Best use of CG color.")
May-02-10  David2009: Good morning, a follow-up to your comment on Estrin vs J Boey, 1987 White to play 36?:

Against Crafty (see link below), both the game line 36 Ra1 and your line 36 Nd4 will win, but Crafty finds a crafty stalemate defence in the main 36 Ra1 line. So winning may be easier using your move 36 Rd4. Enjoy playing through the alternatives! http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t...

Nov-26-10  David2009: <An Englishman:> (O Almeida vs P Zarnicki, 2002) [snip] <proving that one means of avoiding playing bad moves is not to see them.> I like it!
Mar-23-11  YourNickname: <An Englishman> You are awesome!
Jun-04-11  Mozart72: <An Englishman> You are welcomed to my chessforum.

  WannaBe: Good evening,

If my memory serves, you are/were living in N. California, I will soon be relocating to San Mateo county area, and would not mind meeting some of the CG.com members.

If, however, you have moved, and/or my faulty memory chip is wrong, kindly disregard this message in its entirety.

Sincerely

Please e-mail me, kstc_jyu at yahoo.com, please, do mention cg.com in case your message ended in my spam box.

  WannaBe: p.s.s. I am free this weekend, nothing going on at work, unless all of our servers decide to suffer a major power failure and crap out on me.
May-14-12  El Trueno: Hi! I would like to play chess against you 'cause I like your comments :) it would be helpful for me 'cause I'm studying english at school etc.. :)
Sep-03-12  Tal7777777: Happy labor day!
Sep-10-12  Abdel Irada: <An Englishman>: Are you by any chance in New York? ;-)
Dec-05-12  ChessYouGood: It's ever oh so great to read your profile old chum. In particular, it's lovely to see I am not the only actor, playwright, screenwriter, director and producer around here. I am currently working on "Driving Miss Daisy II: Who's in the Boot?" at the moment. Perhaps we can collaborate!

  An Englishman: <ketchuplover>, for some strange, can't post messages on your page. Anyway, quite a remarkable first round. Keeping my fingers crossed for an exciting tournament.
