   Jan-18-17 J F Adams vs E Ott, 1967
 
wwall: This was a correspondence game between Adams of Britain and Ott of Hungary. Adams annotated this game and wrote, "19...Nxc5. Black must now have awaited my next move with some complacency. He appears to be certain to regain his piece straightaway, e.g., 20.Bd4 axb5 21.Qe3 bxc4+ 22.Kc2
 
   Jan-18-17 Tal vs Portisch, 1965
 
wwall: Perhaps the losing move is 38...Kc3, allowing 39.Bxh7. Black could have played 38...Rf8, then 39...Kc3. If 39.Bxh7, then 39...g6. 39...Kxb4? loses to 40.Rxf7, but perhaps 39...Rf8 is better. Bobby Fischer annotated this game for Chess Life, which appeared in the August 1965 issue. All
 
   Jan-17-17 S Popel vs R Chalker, 1969 (replies)
 
wwall: This happened in round 1 of the US Open in Lincoln Nebraska. Popel was rated over 2300 and Chalker was rated 1800.
 
   Jan-17-17 Hans Berliner
 
wwall: I added a Berliner bio to my chess page at http://billwall.phpwebhosting.com/a...
 
   Jan-17-17 Bob Brooks vs B Wall, 1973
 
wwall: Instead of 11...Re8, best may be 11...Ng4 (threatening 12...Qxf2 mate) 12.Nh3 e3 13.Be2 (13.fxe3 Nxe3 14.Qf3 Bg4) 13...exd2+ 14.Bxd2 Rd8. 12.Bb2?? was the losing move. White is OK after 12.c3 or 12.Be2.
 
   Jan-15-17 Antonio Angel Medina Garcia
 
wwall: Medina won the US Open, held in San Antonio, in 1962. Lombardy and Robert Byrne tied for 1st at the US Open at Chicago in 1963. In 1969, he tied for 3rd, behind Benko and Ivkov, at Malaga at the age of 49.
 
   Jan-13-17 Vinkovci (1968)
 
wwall: Fischer coasted in the end. He scored 7.5 out of 8 in the first 8 rounds.
 
   Jan-12-17 Eugene Aleksandrovich Znosko-Borovsky (replies)
 
wwall: <Nosnibor> You are right! Seems to be a Nikolay Alexandrovich Znosko-Borovsky. Perhaps the father of the other two. Looks like Amos Burn played all three at one time. I found a fourth one - Alexander F. Znosko-Borovsky (1908-1983) who was a musician. And a book on Stalin ...
 
   Jan-12-17 A Shneider vs Karpov, 1961
 
wwall: <ChessHigherCat> After 37...Nc2, White has time to play 38.Ne6+ (also preventing ...Nd4+) and queen his pawn, winning the rook (which wouldn't happen after 37...Bb6 as the bishop is on the queening square). For example, 38.Ne6+ Kf7 39.d8=Q Rxd8 40.Nxd8+ and 41.Nxb7. The knight ...
 
   Jan-10-17 Uncommon Opening (A00)
 
wwall: I've contributed a lot of off-the-wall openings to UON, as well as lots of Jerome Gambits (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7) at Rick Kennedy's site, and a collection of Grobs, Larsen, Orangutan, etc in my books years ago, and updated with latest uncommon openings in pgn format on my

Apr-16-11  Open Defence: breaking news!! Bill Wall + Open Defence draw against Rybka!! :)
Apr-16-11
Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: I think it was Houdini we played, run by Aylerkupp. We had Black. With the help of Hosea, we got a draw (drawn endgame as we sacked our knight to get into a knight vs pawn ending).
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: i thought Wilson said GE and AK switched engines and kutz just posted his stockfish game against houdini, so my guess we drew with rybka.. though i am very confused at the line up change
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: the yahoo game score emailed to me is in a very poor format will wait for AK to post the PGN

  wwall: <chessmoron>. I have no problem on the May date, but now I have a conflict for next week, April 30. I am playing in the Space Coast Open in Cocoa, FL with round 1 at 10 am and Rd 2 at 1 pm. I don't think I can make the 12 noon start time for EST. Can a replacement be found for me or can Hosea and Eric play if Eric makes it?
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: does Sunday 1 May 2011 work for you Bill?

  chessmoron: <1 May 2011> won't work for <kutztown> though.

Would April 29th work for you <wwall>?

  wwall: Friday, April 29 would work for me if it is in the evening EST. On May 1, my rounds are at 9 am and 2:30 pm. I would be ok in the evening.

  wwall: 10:30 pm EST works perfectly for me on Friday (Thursday also works)
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: just read the comments to the rybka game at chess.com,

I dont think the average chess fan understands how much of a handicap no Opening books and no Tablebases are to an engine

it still takes a lot of work to go the distance against an engine but with opening books and tablebases the engines would gain and exploit advantages in record time

so the guy who posted that rybka must have been handicapped was in a sense right that it was handicapped with no opening book or tablebase but not otherwise in handicapped in any way..

wonder what they will say for the stockfish game especially since it was a tactical shot that got the draw!
