   rea has kibitzed 21 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-24-17 Jackson Whipps Showalter
rea: One of the inventors of the curveball!
   Apr-13-17 Garry Kasparov (replies)
rea: MGP is fascinating (I talked my public library into buying the 5 volumes), but really it's in some ways as much the first 5 volumes of Kasparov's 12-volume autobiography as it is a history.
   Feb-11-17 Aleksandar Kovacevic
rea: Evidently not the GM Kovacevic who famously beat Fischer (with a little help from his Soviet friends)
   Feb-09-17 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965 (replies)
rea: <em> There's a funny photo of Fischer complaining about something at the board, with Castro looking really exasperated, and in the background Korchnoi has a big smile on his face. couldn't find it on the net.</em> Must have been the Olympiad in '66. In '65, Fischer couldn't ...
   Feb-06-17 Stephen Barbre
rea: Board 1 on the Silver High School Chess team, (Silver City, New Mexico) class of '72. I was last board . . .
   Feb-06-17 Olland vs J Esser, 1901 (replies)
rea: In 1573, the City of Haarlem was captured by the Spanish after a long siege, and the population was massacred. I'm not sure what the pun has to do with this.
   Feb-04-17 Fyodor Ivanovich Dus Chotimirsky
rea: "Can you respell his name properly?" Фёдор Дуз-Хотимирский
   Jan-18-17 Matulovic vs I Bilek, 1967 (replies)
rea: Many years ago, a friend and I, at the conclusions of a weekend tournament, boarded the bus for home. He brushed past a lady standing in the isle with a muttered "J'Adoube."
   Dec-02-16 D Reizniece-Ozola vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
rea: <thegoodanarchist "Can anyone imagine MC losing to D. R-O?"> Sure I can! She's a fairly strong master, a WGM, an experienced player. Carlsen is a human being. Stranger things have happened many, many times.
   Nov-20-16 A Elo vs Fischer, 1957
rea: <em> um El what were you thinking, oh playing Fisher must have meant the end for you.</em> Fischer wasn't famous at the time--he was just 14, and wouldn't win the US Championship or become a GM until the next year.
