Fool on the Hill
Member since Jan-16-03 · Last seen Feb-16-04
Grew up in N.Y. when Fischer was kid, coming up. Learned Chess at 9 yrs. old from my father. Played in a rated tourney last in 1975. Live in the boondocks now, had to live on Postal Chess until the net was up and running. Most of my games are on <itsyourturn> or recently on <gameknot>

Fool on the Hill: I was 9 yrs. old when this game was played, living in N.Y.C., learning chess from my father. The N.Y. Times published this game. My father was so excited, taking me thru the game over and over. Move 5...d5, out comes Byrne's Q, and white's position is already compromised.

Fool on the Hill: In the meantime it seems everyone is missing this game, which is a short gem. Here is an example of why 400+ yrs. later we still look at Ruy's games and play his openings.
