Learned chess at 10. Started competing in tournaments at 15. I've played in 3 U.S. Opens 1982,1983,1988. A couple of US Juniors. Acheived an expert rating which I quickly lost. Tied for the Ohio High School Championship in 1983. Won a few other small open tournaments. Stopped playing in tournaments in 1998 do to marriage, family and that damn job.

   Feb-18-17 E Formanek vs L Shamkovich, 1977 (replies)
jefflissa: 31...Bd3 looks pretty strong. obvious typo. I bet it should be 31 Qe3.
   Jan-23-17 Mecking vs J Vilela, 1965 (replies)
jefflissa: 30. Kg2 looks stronger. 30. Kh6 Ra5 as in the game but white picks the a or c pawn.
   Nov-25-16 S Kupka vs J Lechtynsky, 1967
jefflissa: A very exciting game. Full of tactics. Just when you think black is finished there is one more trick.
   Jan-23-16 V Komliakov vs Savon, 1996
jefflissa: 1-0 ?? I realize black is a little tied up but there has to be another explanation. Time? Maybe Savon's cell phone rang. f6, Nf8/e6?
   Dec-17-15 Jobava vs I Saric, 2015 (replies)
jefflissa: lakshashishu: What if 15...Bxg3 16.hxg3 c6 was played? 17 Bc4+ Kh8 18 Rh7+ Kh7 19 Rh1 Nh4 20 Rh4 ++. 17 Bc4 Rf7 18 Rde1 isn't fun for black.
   Sep-13-15 G Timoshchenko vs G Nsubuga, 2000 (replies)
jefflissa: If 43...Bb7 44.Rc7 Ba8 45.Bf7+ Kh6 46.Rc5 threating mate and Rb5.

jefflissa: Dear Santa, With a wife and four kids I need something to keep me sane. Anything chess related would be great! Thanks. The milk and fudge will be waiting for you!
   Oct-11-12 A Liang vs Kaufman, 2012 (replies)
jefflissa: According to Larry K.'s bio he received the GM title for winning the 2008 Senior Open. Whatever happened to GM norms and a minimum rating of 2500? I mean no disrespect but c'mon man!!
   Nov-24-10 Euwe vs M Marchand, 1920
jefflissa: Not Euwe's best performance but a fun game to play over nonetheless.
   Oct-04-10 Sveshnikov vs E Ubilava, 1984
jefflissa: Isn't 23. Qf7+ Kd7 24.Nc4 with Ne5 and Ng6 even better? Both sources that I've checked have the same move order.
