Now living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I grew up in several places in Canada and the U.S. as my father was in the Canadian navy. I learned chess at 12 and played in high school and the RA club in Ottawa, but my rating never rose above 1500. I've come back to playing only recently (I'm now in my 50's, born the same year as Kevin Spraggett).

Now I live and work in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Not much opportunity to play here yet, but I'm hoping.

PhilFeeley: Colonel Moreau lost all 26 games in one tournament. Unfortunately, none of them are the prize.

PhilFeeley: <you might as well call classical games junk food in comparison to correspondance chess (if that still exists).> It does, sort of. On you can play games at 3 days per move.

PhilFeeley: Juicy knight fork on e6. "Make it so!"
   Dec-09-18 A Hambleton vs V Onischuk, 2017
PhilFeeley: < An Entertaining Draw...!> An oxymoron according to some grumps around here...
   Dec-08-18 Bird vs W Pollock, 1889 (replies)
PhilFeeley: <I think it is a reasonable pun.> I don't get the title either, and don't think it's pun at all.

PhilFeeley: During game 12, according to the Stockfish eval on, Carlsen's advantage was never more than half a pawn. So I think it's no wonder he offered a draw, since he couldn't see an immediate way to a more decisive advantage. He knew he was stronger in rapids.

PhilFeeley: Go Maggie! Close it out!

PhilFeeley: Okay, get it done, Magnus. This is your element.

PhilFeeley: I'd like to know what she thinks about this nonsense:
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
PhilFeeley: In the best line for white in the play continuation by the computer on, white seems to hold things together and it's difficult to see how black can improve. Perhaps Magnus couldn't see anything better.
