An Englishman
Member since May-31-04 · Last seen Feb-21-18
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.

   Feb-21-18 R Costigan vs L Day, 1987 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Can't remember which Costigan brother I met decades ago--they're twins. Nice comeback from what looked like a bad position.
 
   Feb-17-18 Soltis vs Quinteros, 1975 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: <drleper>, Soltis might have made a reasonable assessment--have a glance at Browne vs Quinteros, 1974 .
 
   Feb-14-18 Larsen vs Joel Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: One might think that Larsen would have been nicer to someone who played the Larsen Defense.
 
   Feb-11-18 Ravan Aliyev vs V Kovalev, 2017
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Spectacular example of the Opening of the Day for 11 Feb 2018 going spectacularly wrong for White. If Black's attack was sound, of course. But if sound, 30...Black to Play will present quite a weekend challenge some day.
 
   Feb-07-18 Zukertort vs Oppler, 1862 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: In The Art of Sacrifice in Chess, Spielmann wrote of the position after 11.Be5 and felt that 11...Qg5 comes close to providing Black with a winning position: "White is the proud owner of four Pawns of which two are handsome center pawns, and yet stands to ...
 
   Feb-05-18 H Molvig vs U Larsen, 2015
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: The Tarrasch Gambit (9...d4) can pack a bit of a punch. 22.h3??,Be6 and the White Queen seems to get checkmated in the middle of the board and White will lose a piece after 23.Qe4,Bb3; 24.g4,Rxe4; 25.gxh5,Rxf4.
 
   Feb-04-18 Kaidanov vs D Gurevich, 1997 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Sigh. 4/6 with one puzzle known. Is it Monday yet?
 
   Feb-04-18 Ljubojevic vs Panno, 1972 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Esp. impressive considering that Panno won this tournament, one of the best results of his career.
 
   Feb-03-18 J Arroyo Rodriguez vs Celia Gillis Onieva, 2018
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: That had to hurt a little.
 
   Feb-03-18 B Sjodin vs K Nygren, 2007
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: If I showed you the position after 29.Rh1 and asked you how Black's pawn arrived on b2, would you be able to solve the puzzle? Black got away with some of the strangest chess I've seen in a while.

Oct-07-09  Deus Ex Alekhina: Hullo, English! So lucky of you to be able to enjoy limey "delicacies" such as: blood pudding, kidney pie, toad-in-the-hole, bubble & squeak, along with the Scot's haggis. Just the thought makes me feel peckish! Care for a nosh? Toodles.
Oct-07-09  LIFE Master AJ: E Limp vs A Rodriguez, 2001

<<<< Oct-04-09 <An Englishman:> Good Evening:> Too easy, as was Saturday's.> After two months of going 3/7 or 4/7, this week was my first 7/7 in almost a year.> I'll never understand chess.> CONGRATS!!!

"I'll never understand chess." Me neither!

  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.

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!
