I was born in Brazil, on March 22 1947, I live in Rio de Janeiro and I am a weak a player who wants to improve his Chess understanding. My favorite players are Morphy, Capablanca and Fischer and my present chess trouble is the great number of books I have bought and how to make the best use them.

gars: Happy Birthday, GM Judit! Your games are very beautiful! And, as we all know, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet ...
   Jul-09-17 Berthold Englisch
gars: Many years ago I read in a Fred Reinfeld Book, whose translation into Spanish was published by Martinez Roca, that Englisch loved to draw his games. If I remember the words right and apologizing for spelling mistakes, "para Englisch lo belo era empatar!". Is it so?
   Jul-04-17 Paul Morphy (replies)
gars: Who was your Player of the Day on last May 13th? For next year I suggest Ratmir Kholmov, a very good player who deserves more attention than it has gotten in these days.
