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.

   Nov-21-17 D Gormally vs S Williams, 2006
PhilFeeley: Williams put this game on his French Opening DVD "The Killer French". Why is beyond me, as it's a Dutch Defense. Also, his opponent was a black lab. Was he calling Danny Gormally a dog? Probably not. Just having a bit of fun with a weird game.

PhilFeeley: <Pulo> That doesn't seem like a good reason. All the other matches have separate pages. Carlsen-So should also.
   Nov-21-17 Shabalov vs Bologan, 2005
PhilFeeley: As I recall, when this game finished, the spectators broke out in spontaneous applaus. All that was missing were the gold pieces!

PhilFeeley: I'm trying to confirm this rumor: but I can't find anything on the FIDE website to confirm it. Neither do nor have anything in their news. Where does this story come from? Riyadh seems like an odd place to have a ...

PhilFeeley: Carlsen's not listed here but on the main page? Why?
   Nov-09-17 D Gordon vs C Haessler, 2001 (replies)
PhilFeeley: <perfidious> So, what are the moves? 1...g5 has a pretty good reputation in this database.
   Nov-05-17 European Team Championship (2017) (replies)
PhilFeeley: Azerbaijan is beating the Russians. Good day for chess.
   Nov-01-17 Y Kuzubov vs V Sanal, 2017 (replies)
PhilFeeley: Nice, slow build-up. Probably not suitable for rapid or blitz.
