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."

The late Chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello and I were teammates on the Lane Technical High School chess team in Chicago, which won the Illinois state championship my junior (Albert's senior) and senior years. Albert also became a master, as did our teammates Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus. FIDE Masters Albert 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. My user page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:K....

Thirty-three 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.chessvibes.com/reports/7...

As far as I know, I have successfully submitted more puns for Game of the Day than any other user (84 at last count). 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. I am responsible for World Junior Championship (1957), Vidmar Memorial (1969), and Game Collection: Drawing lines, among others.

I am a contributor to the Chicago Chess Blog, http://chicagochess.blogspot.com.

   Apr-19-15 W So vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
 
FSR: Dang, So has been on fire since he forfeited his game against Akobian: wins against Kamsky, Troff, Giri, and now Adams, with only a draw as Black against Kramnik keeping him from a perfect score. Very impressive.

FSR: <Penguincw> Yes, any kind of game counts. After all, Morphy only played in one tournament, so if we were limited to tournament games hardly anyone would have a Morphy number. My qualifying games are two simul games against Bisguier (I lost both) and an online 15-minute game ...

Danny did this very quickly. If you send him a message saying that you'd like your avatar mirrored I think he can do it quickly. I think it looks much better. I used to work in the print industry, so I know my onions! Why not try out out?

Apr-18-15  Jim Bartle: I was sent here for legal advice:

1. Does Reshevsky have a Morphy number of 2?

2. Who is the youngest player with a Morphy number of 3? Of 4?

Apr-19-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Jim Bartle> See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morph...

(1) No. He's a 3.

(2) Franciscus Antonius Kuijpers might be the youngest 3. Zsuzsa Polgar might be the youngest 4 on the Wikipedia list, but there must be teenagers who have played (Morphy 3s) Barden or Benko or Bisguier and thus are younger Morphy 4s. Incidentally, I am also a Morphy 4 (through both Barden and Bisguier), but not an exceptionally young one.

Apr-19-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I achieved a Morphy number 4 at age 22 via Morphy number 3 Miguel Najdorf.
Apr-19-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Do Morphy numbers count through online games? Like, if I play one of you two, does that mean I have a Morphy number of 5?
Apr-19-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Penguincw> Yes, any kind of game counts. After all, Morphy only played in one tournament, so if we were limited to tournament games hardly anyone would have a Morphy number. My qualifying games are two simul games against Bisguier (I lost both) and an online 15-minute game against Barden (I eked a draw). Incidentally, see my blog post (referenced in the Wikipedia article) http://chicagochess.blogspot.com/20....
Apr-19-15  Jim Bartle: Polgar was born in 1969. There's a game
Reshevsky vs Sherzer, 1987. Sherzer was born in 1971 and is a 4.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: < Yes, any kind of game counts. >

Yes! That means I have a Morphy 6 (I played <rapidcitychess> in a game that ended in a forfeit through the now defunct Playing Zone, who played Morphy 4, <td>). I never even knew I had a Morphy number). ;)
