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: This guy never played Morphy I don't believe, was it for the same reasons as Steinitz? Didn't get really good until he was in his 30's?? Any help appreciated!

Joshka: <DrGridlock> Calling the President's supporter's "deplorable" and her background with Bubba really never clicked with most American's and thank God!!

Joshka: <morfishine> Calling Vlad a "goof" is ignorant. Vlad beat one of the worlds best players after trading queens in a World Chess Championship Match thus winning the title!

Joshka: <frogbert> thanks for the breakdown, thought that certain players were picked and didn't qualify thru actual playing performance!! Other players performed better so he was out. Thanks!!

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.

  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.

  Benzol: <Joshka> Something to keep you going for a wee while Lone Pine (1979)


Mar-30-13  talisman: <Joshka> left you a baseball note on my forum. thanks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: < Joshka:... Check out the latest game from that Euro team tourney Kasparov-Adams...a VERY exciting draw in a Nimzo. Both players were walking the tight-rope!>

I wish you'd provide a link as I can't find this game.

Dec-24-14  kardopov: Merry Christmas Joshka.

  zborris8: <Joshka> Yes, as you say, if there was a rare book expert who could make some judgment or appraisal on the different editions it would clear things up. As now, it's all rather confused. I think I found the answer though. Ed Trice mentioned a video he made of Fischer confessing to the authorship that was published sometime after he died. I've been looking around on youtube, but maybe it's somewhere like vimeo or dailymotion?? Well, thanks for the background about this book in any case. I'll keep you posted if I find any new information about Rex's edition or that video.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <zborris8> Never heard about the video he had. How did you obtain that info? I've been expecting new info cause the supposed 10 year gag order that Ed would talk about, should be up by now. Good luck getting any news from Rex.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zborris8: I don't know if you know this, but he's got a regular player profile here. I read through some of the pages and he wrote some things on Mar 20, 2009 about a video:

Ed Trice <Wait till you see the video I upload next.>

So I "searched kibitzing" and found more details about it. Then I searched YouTube for it but all I can find is this - have you seen it yet?

Still Searching for Bobby Fischer

I feel like I'm getting close. I'll keep you posted if Rex ever replies or if I come across the 1st edition from other sources.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <zborris8> Oh yes, I've seen video you posted, it's been up for years, but have never seen or read that he was going to upload a newer one . I have no doubt that the project Bobby wanted to talk with him further about has to be the revised book. Oh well, unless we hear from Trice, we can only try to piece meal things together. Surprised Winter who lives in Europe, hasn't put together the storyline of what happened, he seems to be on top of all kinds of historical info. Good Luck!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <zborris8> allright, I was under the impression Trice's posts were all deleted, someone said he was banned from so, there ya go, you have the full story. I had forgotten so much its over 10 years past. But still cannot find the part where he says "wait till you see my next video"?
Premium Chessgames Member
  zborris8: <Joshka> You can use the "search thread" feature at the bottom for your phrase "wait till you see my next video" and the post pops up with the words in red so you can spot them.

I had an idea to see if Mr.Trice worked as an editor on another chess-related project, but I don't think he did. I found a few articles about someone who shares the same name - but they are less than flattering. Do you think it could be the same guy?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <Zborris8> Yea, still can't find it, it doesn't matter cause he never put it up...oh well, I know nothing about this Ed Trice from bitcoin.
Premium Chessgames Member
  zborris8: <Joshka> Well, I'll let you know if anything turns up on that 1st edition. Talk to you later!
