Greetings! I'm located in Phoenix. Pillsbury ranks as one of my all-time favorite players. He was a classic example of an inspired genius whose life cut short early on.

   bengalcat47 has kibitzed 308 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-11-18 I Rabinovich vs A Selezniev, 1914
bengalcat47: After 24...Qxe5 25. g5+ wins the Black Queen.
   Apr-28-18 D King vs Larsen, 1990 (replies)
bengalcat47: Excuse this pun, but I wonder if Larsen felt all bent out of shape after losing this game.
   Dec-20-17 H W Apperly vs H Charlick, 1894 (replies)
bengalcat47: Another good pun for this game would be "Oh Henry!"
   Dec-09-17 Reshevsky vs Larsen, 1971
bengalcat47: Nice win by Reshevsky. I know this will sound corny but my advice to Larsen would be "Don't get all bent out of shape!"
   Dec-03-17 Reshevsky vs Santasiere, 1938
bengalcat47: This game can be found in the book "Modern Ideas in the Chess Openings."
   Nov-05-17 Fischer vs Panno, 1970
bengalcat47: This reminds me of Pillsbury's win against von Bardeleben at Hastings in 1895.
   Aug-26-17 Jean Dufresne
bengalcat47: On the subject of the French pronunciation, here in the US, in the state of Utah there is a small city named "Duchesne," ad its name is from the nearby Duchesne River. The name is pronounced "doo-shane."
   Aug-14-17 Alekhine vs N Grigoriev, 1919
bengalcat47: This is a nice example of a king hunt without queens.
   Jun-11-17 F Burden vs NN, 1850
bengalcat47: The "good old days" of romantic chess!
   Apr-03-17 Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander (replies)
bengalcat47: There is an out-of-print book featuring Alexander's best games. Off hand I can't recall the title or the author of this book, so if anyone can share that information that would be most helpful. I'd like to look up this book on Amazon.
