   Howard has kibitzed 2601 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-27-17 Karpov vs O Jakobsen, 1980 (replies)
Howard: But, does anyone know more specifically why Larsen stopped playing in Olympiads? Was it just because of rating issues? Seems a bit strange---he was easily in the world's top-20 up through about the early 80's--he would have been easily eligible.
   May-26-17 Valery Salov
Howard: Exactly what has Salov been up to the last 15 years, or so ? Why did he give up chess ?
   May-24-17 Botvinnik vs Fischer, 1962
Howard: "Your move, Bobby" is what Soltis wrote about this game back in a 1980 issue of CL. In other words, Fischer's M60MG apparently had given faulty analysis of this clash, and Soltis was stating that it was up to Bobby to prove otherwise. To my knowledge, Fischer never got around to it.
   May-24-17 Romanishin vs Ribli, 1979
Howard: Talk about a coincidence! I just looked this game up the other night in a 1979 issue of British Chess Magazine ! Yes, the magazine highly praised 16.dxc5!
   May-24-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
Howard: Oh? How much laundry money?
   May-24-17 Ribli vs R Rodriguez, 1979
Howard: After this win, Ribli was certainly in strong contention for one of the three Candidates spot. But, he slipped up in the last few rounds, including a loss in the last round. As a result, he ended up in a tie for 3-4 place, and he lost the subsequent playoff.
   May-24-17 Keres vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
Howard: True, but Chessmetrics needs to be taken with a rather large grain of salt IMO.
   May-24-17 Anatoly Karpov
Howard: You can also read about that Karpov-Quinteros game in the book about the Leningrad and Petropolis interzonals. It's long out of print, but definitely worth getting if you can find it. Found a copy about four years ago at a used bookstore---great book, especially for chess historians.
   May-24-17 Lev Psakhis
Howard: Hard to believe that Psakhas was tied for 7th in the world on the July, 1982 rating list, but....he was ! His rating had shot up 70 points since the last list.
   May-24-17 Kupreichik vs Karpov, 1966
Howard: The story of Karpov and Kupreichik being sent to that "adult" tournament by mistake, is briefly told in the book World Chess Champions (1980).
