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.

   Apr-22-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
PhilFeeley: <Draws for eternity!> You've already got 'em here. One win in four rounds? I guess these guys just know each other too well.

PhilFeeley: 8-move "GM" draw for Guinina to secure first place in the European Women's. Everyone else is a point behind.
   Apr-19-18 S Franklin vs S Williams, 2011
PhilFeeley: Best game prize at Hastings that year. A great attacking game from both sides.
   Apr-18-18 Luke McShane
PhilFeeley: Missing this interesting game, admittedly a blitz, but nevertheless, an uncommon opening: [Event "NED-ch op 5'"] [Site "Dordrecht"] [Date "2001.02.24"] [Round "4"] [White "Van Wely, Loek"] [Black "McShane, Luke J"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "B00"] [WhiteElo ...
   Apr-17-18 Alexander Morozevich
PhilFeeley: Missing this interesting game, admittedly a rapid game, but still worth a look: [Event "Tilburg rapid20"] [Site "Tilburg"] [Date "1994.??.??"] [Round "1"] [White "Ree, Hans"] [Black "Morozevich, Alexander"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "A40"] [WhiteElo "2440"] ...
   Apr-17-18 Carls vs Hartlaub, 1921
PhilFeeley: Wow! Probably unsound. Perhaps why Williams doesn't cover it on his Master Method 2 DVD.
   Apr-17-18 D Mihalinec vs A Pavlidis, 2010
PhilFeeley: This should be one of his notable games.
   Apr-16-18 M Labollita vs S Williams, 1999
PhilFeeley: I can see black resigning after 34...Re2 since his rook gets skewered. Sure he gets the knight, but white has rook and bishop against rook, with many pawns still on the board. Odd to see Williams still recommending this line in his Master Method 2.
   Apr-16-18 Anton Kovalyov
PhilFeeley: I like this defense of Anton from the CFC: <Any random check of coverage on sites like shows that jeans and tee shirts are worn by many of the other Grandmasters. One example of this is Grandmaster Aronianís cat tee shirt, which I will not criticize, but which ...
   Apr-15-18 Al Rakib Mollah Abdullah vs J Shaw, 2008
PhilFeeley: Why can't black play 7...Rxa2 or 22...Rxa4?
