Play on the ICC. Looking to play folks in the 1350-1750 range. Like slow time control. Enjoy match's where we play up to a certain number of wins. First to win four, five, ect. Draws not counting, time controls of 120 minutes for 40 moves, or with increments, using 45/45, or 30/30.

Joshka: Thanks <SugarDom> for that link!! Yes 20 years is enough torture!!! Also we have Kirsan to thank for ruining the World Chass Championship format and giving us the laughable knockout system and 12 game Championship format which cannot even attract sponsorship from Carlsen's home

Joshka: Norman spent time with Fischer during the famous Log Cabin tour thru the South and eventually thru to Cuba. Brady talks about Norman being the only one from the club to hold an even score with Bobby! Does Hilbert give any account from Norman during his time playing Bobby and spending
   Jul-25-14 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Joshka: <Rookfile> < an obligation on his part to follow somebody's else new format> EXCELLENT. That's what most people simply refuse to recognize, Bobby EARNED the right to set up a legit fair system in which to play, and have it approved. They would not give him his due. Thanks

Joshka: <fedalio> you make my chuckle, you actually think Garry was SCARED to play a 2200 player??? If you are a 2200 player then you are well aware of the rules that a person sets out to hold this type of event. Garry usually plays these simuls for kids, amateurs, beginners and he ...

Joshka: SO does 5.d3 refute the Traxler..Sorry I don't have the keystroke question mark

Joshka: <al wazir> Don't know the exact dimensions of the field on which they play, but it's just way too large. In door arenas are way too small, but watching these guys run around that enormous field, taking off say 15 yards on all sides would conform more for more scoring. Vice ...

Joshka: <Moszkowski012273> Wow, that's a shame, but when you put all your eggs in one basket, losing becomes, I presume, almost unbearable. Did you write the moves down? Would love to pay him a visit for a few days and pick his brain and talk chess!!
   May-24-14 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
Joshka: <TheFocus> Well KGB and the USSR were smarting after Bobby took THEIR title!!;-)......think of it this way, this is not a perfect analogy but I find it similar. Imagine a baseball team in Russia challenging the World Series winner to a 7 game match and winning say in 5 or 6 ...
   May-12-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
Joshka: Why wasn't Nakamura invited to play in the US Championship? I think he even lives in St. Louis? Maybe he was invited but declined? Didn't like the format?/prize fund? thanks in advance!

Joshka: <playground player> Felipe, yes:-) During the 60's I had baseball cards coming out of my ears!! Recall in 4th or 5th grade I'd study them right in class. One teacher stuck my desk in the corner and said, "Okay since you are not interested in school work, you could study your ...

May-17-07  Freidenker: Hello,

No problem, I'm ready to continue whenever you are. I really like to play Friday around 13:00-15:00, if it still suits you.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <Freidenker> I work this Friday at that time....wont be available to play until wednesday morning ICC time between 6am-10am start time...sorry:-(
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: Maybe if Vlad can't play, why not extend an invite to Korchnoi, or Spassky......Spassky was just given a "condo" in Elista, for his lifetime achievements in chess, Korchnoi has been playing like a man who's blind to "father-time".

  talisman: just read Thornton's comment on bobby's page.who is this guy?? we need to call TaxiDriver and tell him to call his uncle...we got a "job" for him.

  chesstoplay: Hi.. no, I'm not chess2play on ICC, but I do, of course, like the name!!

I rarely play except against computer programs late at night when I'm trying to fall asleep.

Most of what I do is on the business organizational front and endless administrative chess related "stuff".

My passion is to teach and keep creating more chess for everyone.

Your friend in chess,

Peter / chesstoplay

  Shams: hey <Joshka>-- you know what? you were right about Mickey Rourke. He is pretty good. I stand corrected. After I shot my mouth off I decided to rent 9 1/2 weeks. I quite liked it.

  Joshka: Hey dad, just to let ya know, you are still loved and missed by all very, very much. Took Evan out today with Larry to help him with his driving test, he can do it, just needs a little patience. If you're in cahoots with the "driving Angel"....make sure he or she is reminded that he goes for his test Friday, the 24th. The old house you built is still holding up just fine, it never ceases to amaze me how ya did it! But I'm so thankfull you did!:-).....I'm not all too sure you'll get this, but hoping you's written, these cyber air/waves, or whatever....are controlled by "the prince and power of the air"....but all is still a mystery for us all still around down here. Again, this day reminded me of you, and just to let you know, when we gathered at Sues's house after the funeral, the phone did ring loud and clear! Sorry we didn't pick it up in time!;-)....I know you are in always Bruce
Apr-28-09  hackmate: Hello Bruce,

I am all moved in now. Great place, very nice family too. Getting ready for the big wedding day.

Aug-21-09  SugarDom: Yes, it's kind of common for Filipinos with Chinese background....

Probably no relations.

Nov-03-09  timhortons: joshka i see your posted kibitz at kibitzers cafe.

i see 26 games on it at database.

if i had time i can retrieve some of it for you.

now if your looking for some GM's game on it, i had no idea.

Nov-12-09  timhortons: joshka id seen the photo of bobby's daughter posted at chessbase.

tell me what is your initial reaction when you see the photo?

for me im a bit shock since it defy my expectation.

Feb-14-10  spawn2: <Joshka>

Yes, I live in the Philippines. Had the privilege of rubbing elbows with some of the GMs from the Philippines who were all nice guys.

Oct-06-11  JoergWalter: <timhortons> my filipino friend Angel used to say :"Oh, looks like your neighbour".
Oct-18-11  JoergWalter: Hi <Joshka> the date doesn't work for the search function either (on Johnny Carson). maybe the erased the show?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <JoergWalter> It seems like they change the way the dates are inserted to find which date one wants ...for today I had to put in the year first.....1972-11-08....yesterday I had to put in the month first......11-08-1972....but Seg #10 Guest Interview you see Bobby sitting there right next to Carson and then Seg #11 is a commercial, and Bobby there again for Seg # 12.
Oct-18-11  JoergWalter: Thanks <Joshka> it worked. great stuff. Will give the link to <JessicaFischerQueen> who is doing a fantastic job on chess history.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <JoergWalter) great glad it worked for ya!!!

  Phony Benoni: <Joshka> Sorry, but I can't seem to find information as to the actual site of the 1957 US Open in Cleveland. One possible suggest: if you have from CD-ROM from USCF containing the issues of Chess Life and Chess Review, go through the early issues of 1957 and see if you can find an ad for the tournament. That should mention the site.

By the way, you may have noticed that I had two alternate crosstables for the 1957 US Open in the collection. I have now removed one, and feel the correct one is left.

Jun-22-12  I play the Fred: Hey <Joshka>, thanks for the invite. I'm on FICS right now.

  Phony Benoni: <Joshka> On another page some time ago, you asked about tournament pages for the Lone Pine events. We finally have one:

Lone Pine (1975)

By far the biggest hang-up for these (and many other tournaments) is the unavailabliity for specific dates for individual rounds. You'd think that information would be routinely available, but it's not. I have the Lone Pine bulletins for 1978, 1979, and 1980, but there is not a single round date to be found.

This is important because the game list on the tournament pages is arranged by date of the game. Without dates, the order of games is somewhat random.

A few tournaments have been pushed through without dates, but we much prefer to have them if at all possible.

By the way, the Lone Pine tournaments were never all-GM tournaments, nor where they designed to be. The main goal was to give U.S. masters, particularly juniors, a chance to meet international-level competition. In later years, they were altered to provide title norm chances for U.S. players.
