I am Frederick Rhine. The United States Chess Federation awarded me the titles of National Master (at OTB chess) in 1982, and Senior Master of Correspondence Chess in 1997. I played in the 1997 USCF Absolute Championship (open to the top 13 correspondence players who accept their invitations), scoring 6-6 (+2 =8 -2). Alex Dunne wrote in his book on the Absolute Championships, "This was Rhine's only Absolute and he held his own against the best. His two losses were against previous Absolute winners." http://bit.ly/1NB55YP

I attended Lane Technical High School in Chicago with the late Chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello until he moved out of Chicago. Lane's chess team won the Illinois state championship my junior and senior years, becoming the first school ever to win consecutive championships. Albert also became a master, as did my teammates Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus. FIDE Masters Albert Charles Chow and the late Morris Giles were also Laneites.

In July 2013, I played in my second and third regular-rated tournaments of the millennium(!), the Greater Midwest Classic and the Chicago Class (under-2200 section). I tied for second, undefeated, in both, winning $700 and $550, respectively, and brought my rating back over 2200. http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j... http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j...

I have contributed to hundreds of chess-related articles on Wikipedia under the handle Krakatoa, notably "First-move advantage in chess," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-... "George H. D. Gossip," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George... and "Swindle (chess)," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_..., all of which are almost entirely written by me. The first two of those have been Today's Featured Article, the highest honor a Wikipedia article can receive, one attained by about one out of every 1,400 articles. I have received various Wikipedia awards, including the Imperial Triple Crown Jewels and the Timeless Imperial Triple Crown (which only 11 Wikipedians have received). My user page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:K....

Forty-nine of my games are in chessgames.com's database. My favorites are F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981, K Thompson vs F Rhine, 1992, and F Rhine vs A Boerkoel, 1996. The first two of these were both published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volumes 32 and 57), and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (2nd ed.) at 183 n.19, and Vol. B (3rd ed.) at 172 n.163). My 18th move (18.Nxd6!) in Rhine-Sprenkle was voted the 8th-9th most important theoretical novelty in Volume 32 of Chess Informant. That game was also cited in MCO-13, and occupies an entire chapter in all three editions of "Beating the Sicilian" by John Nunn. It is game 218 in "1000 TN!! The Best Theoretical Novelties" (Chess Informant, 2012).

I composed this study, which Pal Benko published in "Benko's Bafflers" in Chess Life, May 2006:

White to play and draw


click for larger view

The solution is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalem... It is based on an earlier study of mine, which Benko also published in his column. Both of these compositions appear in Harold van der Heijden's endgame study database. http://www.thechessmind.net/blog/20...

As far as I know, I have successfully submitted more puns for Game of the Day than anyone else (129 and counting). Game Collection: Puns I submitted The coveted 2013 Caissar for Best (Worst) Pun went to "Control-Ault-Delete," the pun I submitted for Fischer vs R Ault, 1959, the Game of the Day on December 19, 2012. "As far as I can tell, <FSR> is churning out 'actual puns' almost as fast as I can [insert bodily function of choice]." User: johnlspouge

I am responsible for World Junior Championship (1957), Vidmar Memorial (1969), Carlsen - Anand World Championship (2014), and Game Collection: Drawing lines, among others.

   Nov-17-18 E Treger vs J Bartholomew, 2004
 
FSR: Instead of the caveman move 6.Qh5, more subtle is 6.Bc4, hoping Black plays 6...c6? (6...Nf6! https://www.365chess.com/view_game.... ), when White can "Effim" up with 7.Bxf7+! Kxf7 8.Qh5+ g6 9.Nd6+ exd6 10.Qxa5. IM Eric Rosen successfully pulled off this trap in a recent blitz game ...
