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.

   Aug-14-18 Movsesian vs N Miezis, 2008 (replies)
PhilFeeley: Exactly which part of that was "easy"?

PhilFeeley: We'll need a page for this kid soon: Is anyone maintaining this site?
   Aug-10-18 Evgeny Ilgizovich Bareev (replies)
PhilFeeley: Bareev did play for Canada at the 2016 Olympiad, and we had our best result ever: played board 1 (!) in the last round against the powerhouse U.S. team. Even losing, we ended up in 11th place, ahead of Azerbaijan and China (!) Well done! This year Bareev doesn't play for the team
   Aug-07-18 Taimanov vs Psakhis, 1981 (replies)
PhilFeeley: Why was this considered "easy"?
   Aug-03-18 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
PhilFeeley: <1d410: Chess is not a soviet sport....> An absolutely ludicrous thing to say, given the position of chess in the Soviet Union. Plus, under Soviet rule, you could have earned a PhD in chess. Nothing close to this exists anywhere else. The only place close to the Soviet view
   Aug-01-18 Ivanchuk vs B Ivanovic, 1993
PhilFeeley: I don't know what black was thinking with 34...Rxc2. Maybe it was a time loss. I know there's another game by Ivanchuk in the four-pawns attack of the KID. Does anyone know where it is? I seem to remember it was more recent than this one.

PhilFeeley: <JimNorCal: PhilFeeley, read this. Daniel Freeman> I missed it too <nalinw>. My condolences to his family and all his friends at <> and the chess community.

PhilFeeley: We should see her games from this year's British Championships here soon.
   Jul-28-18 Vladimir Burmakin
PhilFeeley: Missing this excellent game in the Caro-Kann / French: [Event "Balaguer op 11th"] [Site "Balaguer"] [Date "2006.07.21"] [Round "5"] [White "Babaev, Rashad"] [Black "Burmakin, Vladimir"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "B12"] [WhiteElo "2454"] [BlackElo "2558"] ...
   Jul-27-18 E Agdestein vs Adams, 1997
PhilFeeley: A good example of the hedgehog. Adams then launches his pawns up the kingside, and white collapses.
