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).

PhilFeeley: <devere: Pandora's box> But surely any form of chess is better than deciding by roulette.

PhilFeeley: <only one that we know for sure behaved improperly was Kovalyov> No. Azmaiparashvili surely was.

PhilFeeley: Has anyone tried Garry's training method? Satisfied customers? Experiences?
   Sep-11-17 W So vs Jobava, 2014
PhilFeeley: A search for this game lists it as an "Uncommon King's Pawn Opening (B00)" but the description above says English Defense: Kangaroo Variation (B00), which is more correct. I wonder why the different description in the search result.

PhilFeeley: Sometimes I don't like Ashley's commentary style, but I can live with it. Whose voice I can't stand under any circumstances is his sometime co-host Jennifer Shahade. I'm sure she's intelligent and very knowledgeable when it comes to chess but her voice just grates on my ear like ...
