Member since Jun-08-05 · Last seen Mar-28-17
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: Why is this game not here: GM Ivanchuk vs GM Kamsky, Turneul Regilor 2009 [DIAGRAM] Maybe it's under a different date? (white to move, BTW)

PhilFeeley: Help me out: I thought the 50-move rule was no captures or checks for 50 moves, but there were lots of checks in that span, so why is this a draw?

PhilFeeley: <Joshka> Then there's all those games he played with the Polgars. I wonder if he kept any of those gamescores.

PhilFeeley: <Imran Iskandar: Nice, only posted after it's ended.> And nothing from the tournaments underway in St. Louis right now.

PhilFeeley: I got Bxd4, but missed the queen sac, although in retrospect, it's forced as the queen is pinned.

PhilFeeley: <Well, I'm not impressed by these bloody Russians...> Usually, I find your posts interesting, but this one is just insane. Were you high when you wrote it?
   Mar-05-17 Tal Memorial (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
PhilFeeley: Great. This is already over before anyone knew it was on. Onischuk won BTW, 9/11, Shirov a distant whatever, 7.5/11. Sad.
