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: <eggman> <who belied the nerd stereotype> Well there ya go, thank you! AMEN. <the diminutive Maguire doesn't capture> Very well said, thanks:-)
 
   Aug-14-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
 
Joshka: Depending on one's definition, Fischer at least thought he WAS a child prodigy. Cavett asked him this very question in the 7 minute partial interview he put out after Bobby had passed.
 
   Jul-04-15 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
 
Joshka: <perfidious> Yes it seems like Karpov had the upper hand, but could not take the full point somehow.......doesn't seem to be played anymore at the top level like you say.....so many games one plays over where one player is a pawn up, but still nothing doing, sometimes it's not ...

Joshka: The Boxing/Sports world has waited for over 5 years for this fight to take place, it is finally here!! The drama this encounter is producing is as close to what we were hoping for in a Fischer/Karpov match if it had happened. Those negotiations took place in 1976 and probably 1977 ...

Joshka: I've heard the interview on chessbase.com and read most of his comments, I'm sorry but Fischer was talking like this back in the early 1960's........so this is 50 year old comments........the truth hurts, that's why most folks have a hard time accepting this reality........it's not ...

Joshka: Any LIVE coverage of ROUND 2? And what time does it begin?
 
   Mar-13-15 Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Rematch (1981) (replies)
 
Joshka: <offramp> Correct, this was not a REMATCH. Korchnoi fully qualified. Korchnoi was given nothing!. But he was a bit lucky Bobby was not playing, cause he would not have played in any World Championship Matches. Bobby and Karpov would have had their duals!!

Joshka: I like when I hear folks call the terrorists 'separates'...LOL

Joshka: <pazzed paun> Hey thanks!!! I cannot disagree with anything you posted, except the big one Number 5. No, USA Chess would be basically nothing unless you get the flamboyant persona of a Fischer or reasonable facsimile!:-) .....World Professional Boxing....Ali brought the boxing ...
 
   Feb-08-15 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
 
Joshka: By 1984 it's probably safe to say Garry would have prevailed against Bobby. So really, Karpov's reign as Champion is due to Bobby's non participation. If things had run the normal course, Garry would have been the next World Chess Champion after Bobby. of course IMHO!:-)

Jul-27-07  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

Mar-12-08  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 do......it'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 peace......love 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 gameknot.com 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?

  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.

  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.

  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.
