My name is Jim, I live in northern California.

   JimNorCal has kibitzed 2086 times to chessgames   [more...]

JimNorCal: Sounds like Nigel and Hou are not that far apart. And both are experts in the field. I'd say Judit Polgar is an exception. She could play head to head against the best men. She never became WC but then, neither did lots of super talented male GMs.
   Oct-08-19 F Reinfeld vs I A Horowitz, 1938
JimNorCal: Seems like Fred needed to block the position not play a4 and generate weak pawns
   Oct-06-19 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1908
JimNorCal: At move 20-ish White looks really good but Tarrasch was able to turn it around
   Oct-03-19 M Michailov vs D Carlo, 2009 (replies)
JimNorCal: As stacase suggests: don't complain, file a whistle blower report. No user that you complain to can do anything anyway.
   Oct-03-19 Tarrasch vs Von Scheve, 1887
JimNorCal: Not enough isolated pawns LOL

JimNorCal: A similar quote I've seen from an exhausting, hard fought, up and down battle went something like this: "Both players are missing not only the point of their opponent's moves, but even the point of their own moves"
   Sep-30-19 D Freeman vs K McDonald, 2011 (replies)
JimNorCal: My understanding is that Daniel's last name was chosen not given via mother or father, thus "free man". For all you Prisoner fans
   Sep-29-19 50th USSR Championship (1983)
JimNorCal: Just to "bookend" ewan14, I strongly believe Karpov performed exactly as expected for the USSR Championships he did not participate in.

JimNorCal: The boat, owned by a European royal family LOL, may be zero emission but they will fly a set of crew members to the US to sail it back. So it would have been more green for Greta to simply fly herself and a parent to NY. Has anyone introduced her to FaceTime, Zoom, WeChat or ...
   Sep-22-19 Grand Prix Skolkovo (Women) (2019) (replies)
JimNorCal: Yes, Humpy controlled her nerves. GM Ju softened. She lost in the penultimate round and could only draw as black in the final. One of the other ladies finished strong to tie for second place.
