Sally Simpson: Hi M.S. On the ECF forum they are saying that David Howell has overtaken Mickey on the live ratings and is now England's No.1. I played David once (well kind of played him) and won.
   Mar-17-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Sally Simpson: "Too many rest days, it breaks things up too much." Agree 100% Though someone will disagree. Rest days often turn into squabble days because we have nothing else to do. Either that or the thread drifts hopelessly off topic...above I see a minor tiff brewing over what religion
   Mar-17-18 B Martini vs B Lengyel, 2010
Sally Simpson: [DIAGRAM] I'd say White has a plus here (it's an ending and because this place has more computers running than Silicon Valley 'a plus' is as far as I go) A Black pawn is going to drop a pawn and attempts to save it with Rf1 or Rf4 meet Rd7+ and corridor mates are on the board.
   Mar-17-18 Grischuk vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Move 55 is the '666' of the chess world. The 13th floor. Before a game I always score out the number 55 on my score sheet and have lost count of the number of World championships that have been decided by a blunder on move 55. Far too many to even begin a list. In 1955 (sic) ...
   Mar-17-18 W So vs Aronian, 2018
Sally Simpson: Hi eric, I have not seen the after match interview. Looks like Aronian would have declined it. Something I use to stress to my students. 'If someone sacs something against you. The first thought should be - what happens if I do not take it.' (sometimes that option has not ...
   Mar-16-18 Keene vs J N Sugden, 1961
Sally Simpson: No. The one thing every other piece can do but the Queen cannot. The Queen is the only piece that cannot be the piece moving to give a discovered or double check. (else it would already be giving a check and therefore cannot move) Best explained by a couple of diagrams. ...
   Mar-16-18 Caruana vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi AylerKupp, It is a draft and they are looking for feedback but you are correct, it is very strange. (hopefully you can see this I seem to be in a endless loop waiting to get on.)
   Mar-15-18 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi K.P. Me too. I tried to convince C.G. Kramnik had mated Fabiano so we could switch games. Thought it was going to be one of them games where two of the favourites back off each other. phone call: Stupid wife had left set of keys at home and I was ordered out to deliver ...
   Mar-14-18 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi Dom, I too dislike 'patzer' always have. But I think I'm on safe ground calling myself one when compared to a GM. If someone uses it first and I want the quote I'll take it. Maybe, now thinking about it after the heat of the battle, this game will make the book ...
   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Cor Blimey, Talk about bias posting. If anyone else but Carlsen had played 1.a3 then you get post like: ..."showing complete and utter disrespect to the opponent etc etc... If anyone else had missed a bog standard mate in 2 then they would get slaughtered. What have we got ...
