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: Nigel, As a World Chess Championship contender, your match with Garry in 1992 was for 24 games. Do you think these mini World Championship Matches we are having now are the right way to go? I'm under the impression that players now are lazy, and don't want to dig deep, to endure the ...

Joshka: I just happened to play this line for the first 4 moves as white, but I varied for 5. Bb5+. What makes this Kramnik's Variation? White's play or Black's? Thanks in advance!

Joshka: <sleepwalking> I didn't say you called him a weak grandmaster. But I was just giving you an example of what a lot of chess fans do, when they talk and write in general. Just irks the heck out of me. In fact maybe Reshevsky didn't want to just memorize rote variations, he ...

Joshka: <AylerKupp> Here is a link which talks a bit about the conclusions found by a PHD in Mathematics. So if you have a beef with me, better take it up with the higher ups, cause Fischer gave Karpov better chances to survive in the draws not counting offer. But the Soviets took that

Joshka: yes, I'll 2nd that, Thomas Ellison was the Clevelander that played Bobby. I know, we played at the same chess club together.

Joshka: <SimonWebbsTiger> Yea, Rex Sinquefeld has been investing heavily into chess, Fischer collections, big prizes, would not be surprised if his deep pockets were going to fund a match. My take, is about time, someone in this country puts his money into chess!! Thought millionaire ...

Joshka: <Ke2> Wouldn't surprise me at all. They were crazy for Fischer in South America. I spent time in Colombia in 1984, and there was a chess club in Medellin named "The Fischer Club" And that wasn't even Argentina where his popularity was even more! At that club in Colombia, all ...

Joshka: <Howard> <So 39.g5 would have WON ?> According to Bobby, it's a forced win for white. " The greedy, "purely capitalistic" 39. g5!! is a forced win. Continue 39...Kb4 40. Qf8 Qae7 41. Qff6 Nd1 and a key move here is 42. Bh3! stopping what would otherwise become an eventual

  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".

  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 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.

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

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.
