Member since Apr-03-04 · Last seen Jul-29-16
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: alright not a GM, but he should have known better. Develop your pieces, castle.......Game of century becomes nonexistent.

Joshka: I believe this is also called the Miami variation?

Joshka: I renewed my interest in chess during the 1978 battle between Karpov and Korchnoi. Believe me, it was NOT Karpov that I was rooting for!;-) Fischer initially opened my eyes to the game, but Korchnoi renewed it.

Joshka: What is wrong with 12. Qxe5+?
 
   Apr-09-16 Steinitz vs J Wibray, 1883
 
Joshka: Do we have any idea WHERE this Simul took place? Hard to believe Steinitz and Morphy didn't hook up right here where Morphy lived and resided. The 2 best players in the world and they don't even meet and talk?, I find that very hard to believe.
 
   Apr-05-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
 
Joshka: <activechess5> World Chess Champion candidates take their physical conditioning very seriously. Endurance is important!! That's why games are 5 plus hours long!! Karjakin/Carlsen are still both very young, for them to want to wimp out and play just 12 games or so is just ...
 
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
 
Joshka: <sreeskamp> I believe Karjakin is Ukrainian, he just relocated to Russia.

  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,

  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.
