My name is Jim, I live in northern California.
My rating is normally in the 1900-2000 range.

   JimNorCal has kibitzed 1111 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-22-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
JimNorCal: <rokko>: MVL still needs shared first or sole second. With MVL and seven (7!) others currently tied for second, with only 3 rounds to go, I'm doubting that MVL can achieve SOLE second.
   Nov-21-17 Lasker vs Reshevsky, 1936
JimNorCal: So this is the only Reshevsky/Lasker game then. I recall reading about an Ed Lasker/Reshevsky exhibition game. It ended as being "abandoned". Lasker had crushed young Sammy, who was reduced to starting angrily at the chessboard.
   Nov-18-17 J L Hammer vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
JimNorCal: <Yuridmi>: I agree. But it will be useful to let an engine take a look too :)
   Nov-14-17 K Behting vs Nimzowitsch, 1910
JimNorCal: Thanks, OCF, yes I meant 30 Rxa6.

   Nov-05-17 Kevitz vs Capablanca, 1931 (replies)
JimNorCal: <vbdoctor>: My theory is that Capa saw moving pictures of multitudes of positions in his chess eye. Choosing a move was a matter of picking one of them and steering the game to it. Whoa! Sounds like the Guild Navigators from the sci-fi classic novel "Dune"
   Nov-05-17 London (1927)
JimNorCal: I have a copy of the BCM tournament book: excellent games and analysis. Lots of hyper modern stuff going on. Photo of book cover:
   Nov-03-17 Podebrady (1936)
JimNorCal: A number of new inductees to the "Vera Menchik Club", she won six games.
   Oct-31-17 J Moeller vs O Bernstein, 1906
JimNorCal: Wow. Pretty embarrassing. And he was not a bad player either.
   Oct-23-17 Marcel Duchamp
JimNorCal: <epistle>: Fascinating. Thanks.
