BishopofBlunder
Member since Jul-16-05 · Last seen Dec-10-17
Welcome to the Blunder Dome!!!

I am your host, the self-proclaimed Bishop of Blunder.

For those of you looking for my rough essay, "How I Became a Chessplayer", it has been moved to my not so recently opened MySpace page, http://www.myspace.com/bishopofblun... .

However, I have given up on MySpace. For 'tis a silly place. Therefore, I have moved on to Twitter (BishopofBlunder) and Fakebook (Mark Burns). Feel free to join me in either place.

I also have a blog (who doesn't) of little consequence which keeps changing names. It is now called: Bathtub Gin (url= http://nothing-n-nobody.blogspot.com)

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Some of my favorite chess quotes:

<"If it were just a question of winning or losing, if it were not possible to play a brilliant game, to make an incredible queen sacrifice, to play the occasional shocking or outrageous move, then I suspect many people would not play chess. It simply would not be worth it; such a difficult game and with so few rewards."> --- Jonathan Levitt

<"One of the biggest misconceptions about chess is it requires a lot of memorization. In reality, while some memorization is required, pattern recognition plays a crucial part in chess mastery."> -- Susan Polgar

After we have paid our dutiful respects to such frigid virtues as calculation, foresight, self-control and the like, we always come back to the thought that speculative attack is the lifeblood of chess. --- Fred Reinfeld

There are only two kinds of moves in the opening, moves which are wrong and moves which could be wrong. --- Tartakower

<"I am NOT a NUMBER! I am a FREE MAN!>

-- No. 6

I would like to also add a special "howdy" to my favorite kibitzer, and adopted love child, jessicafischerqueen chessforum , whom I care for so much that I can even forgive her for being Canadian.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

My favorite chess masters are:

Paul Morphy

Robert James Fischer

Mikhail Tal

All my favorite players are dead. That should tell you something about my game.

I am an infrequent visitor to FICS ( http://www.freechess.org/ ) to play chess online. My moniker there is <DissidentAggresor> (note only one 's' in aggresor due to username length restrictions). My ratings, as of 12/01/2011, are blitz: 1282, standard: 1583. However, these are still provisional. I have only played a few rated games.

I am a basic member at http://www.chess.com/ where I am currently unrated but have delved into the world of correspondence chess. Drop by and ask for a game (if you can afford the stamps :)). My name there is also <DissidentAggressor>. I also plan to play live chess there if I can ever find the time.

Additionally, I play correspondence chess at http://www.chessworld.net/ . Guess what? My user name there is Dissident Aggressor.

I am also a member at http://gameknot.com (for correspondence chess) under the moniker: BishopofBlunder and at http://chesscube.com (for live chess) under the name: DisAggressor.

I prefer over the board (OTB) chess to the internet version. Internet chess is to OTB chess what cybersex is to real sex. It's still fun, but is decidedly less satisfying.

Please enjoy my forum and feel free to discuss any subject you like. I'm easy.

BishopofBlunder: I remember watching "Game Over" and thinking it made Joel Benjamin seem to be a bitter little man with a great hatred for Kasparov. Not that anyone could blame him...
 
   Aug-18-14 M Schulz vs T Struening, 2004 (replies)
 
BishopofBlunder: Sadly, in a blitz game, I probably would have taken the knight, thinking that he couldn't take back with the rook due to 29.Qxg7#.
 
   Aug-18-14 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
 
BishopofBlunder: 131, which is only slightly above par, but can't be too disappointed because my endgame stinks. I missed the bishop sac, which was brilliant.

BishopofBlunder: Thanks to all for the opinions/theories on epaulette mates. In the end, it doesn't really matter if it is or isn't. Still counts as a win either way, right? <LIFE Master AJ: <Bishop> Did you ever get a chance to look at the diagrams of the epaulette mates?> Yes, ...

BishopofBlunder: Boy, do I stink at chess. Didn't see this combination at all. What does it say about your tactical skill when you can't even get the "easy" ones?
