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

   Nov-18-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: <Sally Simpson>, found four solutions; do any others exist? Curious about one thing. Let's throw in a White King at h1. Take a look at any of the four solutions. Could they have arisen by legal moves? If yes, what are they?
 
   Nov-18-18 Polugaevsky vs Korchnoi, 1980
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: The earliest appearance of the d5 gambit in the database comes in A Sandrin vs G K Fielding, 1954 , although both players soon muffed the ensuing play. Incidentally, Sandrin was blind. Would seem appropriate to label 8.Nh4! as the Polugaevsky Continuation of the ...
 
   Nov-18-18 Areshchenko vs F Corrales Jimenez, 2009
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: A bit surprised to have solved this one. Then again, White has landed in desperate trouble, and perhaps desperate moves are easier to spot in desperate times.
 
   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Why didn't Black play 29...h6 to prevent Bg5, and why didn't White play 30.Bg5? Have I overestimated the threat to the f7 pawn?
 
   Nov-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Can't figure out why Carlsen opened the a-file for the benefit of the a8 Rook, developing a piece that hasn't even moved (!). Then he gave up the open d-file, and chess in general and this game in particular has passed me by. My approach to the game is clearly ...
 
   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: <boz>, it would depend upon the specific position of course, but White would win the h5 pawn in return. Or if Black played ...Be7 before g4, White could always try Ke3 and f4. In some cases, after g3-g4,Be7; g4-g5. I plead guilty to speculating upon ...
 
   Nov-11-18 Smyslov vs Petrosian, 1960 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: After 105 moves, still a middle game. That does seem rather amazing.
 
   Nov-10-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Morning: Wondering if I can write 37.Rg6 (forcing the King to the first rank) before Carlsen plays it.
 
   Nov-10-18 Kanan Ahadzade vs Anna M Sargsyan, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: The entire game has much of interest. White thought 25.f4 contained a trap, but Black uses a forcing line to exchange Queen for Rook, Knight and Pawn. 33...Ne5; 34.fxe5?,Bxe5+ wins the Exchange. 34...Nfg4 transforms the game into Queen & Knight vs. 2 Rooks and 2 ...
 
   Nov-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Have to run errands. White has to watch for Rh3+ forcing the King back, followed by a Black King advance to c4. Not a bad start to the match, however this game ends.

  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.
