Decided to post on cg again without getting too fond of it. Welcome to anyone who visits my forum! I don't look much like my avatar, but that's pretty much how I think I am.

Dionysius1: Excellent fun! Adams wins on move 118
   Jul-26-15 Fischer vs J A Rubinetti, 1970
Dionysius1: For me, even better than a Tal sacrificial game. There doesn't seem to be a speculative move in this - an example of the iron cast logic of classical chess. Nothing messy (and I've read somewhere that comparatively speaking Fischer was less happy with messy positions). The game ...
   Jul-24-15 Denker vs Fine, 1944 (replies)
Dionysius1: <"One moment that I will never forget" wrote Arnold in The Bobby Fischer I Knew "is when ...[Reuben Fine and I] drove home after I won the 1944 U.S. Championship - in large part because of beating Ruby in our individual game. "You know" he said without bitterness, "you've ...
   Jul-07-15 Euwe vs Keres, 1940 (replies)
Dionysius1: Does 10 Qc2 threaten 11 Ng5 with double attack on h7 and b7? Not just preparing e4. And 10...f5 defends against both the tactical and the strategic threat?
   Jun-30-15 D M Adams vs M Lyell, 2007 (replies)
Dionysius1: Thanks - that's useful. I do the same in real games: leave an attacking piece en prise. hrmmpf!
   Jun-23-15 10th Edmonton International (2015) (replies)
Dionysius1: Thanks <Edmontonchessclub>.I always look forward to your fly-on-the-wall commentary on your annual event. Long may it flourish!
   May-27-15 Uhlmann vs Unzicker, 1960 (replies)
Dionysius1: Maybe not - I reckon they've played 10 moves, and taken 20 minutes (longish) and 6 minutes (seems short to me!). Great to see these old pictures: what a shame there isn't the same physical crowd appeal to chess that there used to be!
   May-27-15 FIDE Grand Prix Khanty-Mansiysk (2015) (replies)
Dionysius1: Good point. I just concentrate on the quality of the chess and try to ignore the team aspect. Chess is exactly a game about individuals.
   May-24-15 Spassky vs Polugaevsky, 1970
Dionysius1: Hear hear!
   May-24-15 Svidler vs Tomashevsky, 2015 (replies)
Dionysius1: None of the computer programmes the tournament site uses for analysis suggests 19...g5 I can't see why not though.
