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: Wow, that was pretty swift. What should black have done to avoid this?

   May-13-17 M Massironi vs F Stips, 2007 (replies)
PhilFeeley: <bcokugras> My question exactly. Probably something like: 20...Qxb6 21. Qa8+ Kc7 22. Qxd8+ and white is exchange up with still an attack.
   May-12-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
PhilFeeley: If we have to pay, then why are the games on chessbomb?
   May-10-17 Short vs E Blomqvist, 2017 (replies)

   May-06-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
PhilFeeley: <ChessHigherCat, perfidious> So take the top 20 players. Do any of them exhibit this kind of behaviour? The top 100? I know there are thousands of GMs around the world now and it wouldn't surprise me that some are paranoid by nature, but does that mean that chess is to ...
   May-06-17 Nezhmetdinov vs Ujtelky, 1964
PhilFeeley: Weirdest game I've ever seen: all black pawns on the 6th rank by move 18. When is that ever good? Think what Carlsen or Kasparov would have made of that.
