From Sevilla (Spain), born in fifties. Chemical analyst, working in a official Drinking Water Quality Control laboratory.

Eye-witness in some games of Kasparov-Karpov WCC Sevilla 1987. Being a pre-teenager, I also watched a couple of games of Petrosian-Huebner, Candidates 1971.

Active player in 80s, not anymore. It was too much for my nervous system.

I'm very interested in chess history. Favourite player is an ideal mix Capablanca-Nimzovich-Smyslov. Two logical and clear minds and, in the middle, some drops of Nimzo eccentricity.

Current Favorite Poem:

Como dize Aristótiles, cosa es verdadera,
el mundo por dos cosas trabaja: la primera,
por aver mantenençia; la otra cosa era
por aver juntamiento con fenbra plazentera.

Si lo dexiés de mío, sería de culpar;
dizelo grand filósofo, non só yo de rebtar:
de lo que dize el sabio non devemos dubdar,
ca por obra se prueva el sabio e su fablar.

Que diz verdat el sabio clarame[n]te se prueva:
omnes, aves, animalias, toda bestia de cueva
quieren segund natura conpaña sienpre nueva,
e quanto más el omne que toda cosa que se mueva.

Digo muy más el omne que toda creatura:
todas a tienpo çierto se juntan, con natura;
el omne de mal seso todo tienpo, sin mesura,
cada que puede quiere fazer esta locura.

El fuego sienpre quiere estar en la çeniza,
comoquier que más arde quanto más se atiza;
el omne quando peca bien vee que desliza,
mas non se parte ende ca natura lo enriza.

E yo, como só omne como otro, pecador,
ove de las mugeres a las vezes grand amor;
provar omne las cosas non es por ende peor,
e saber bien e mal, e usar lo mejor.

Juan Ruiz, Arcipreste de Hita (1284-1351).

Chess is only my second passion. I am a proud supporter of my local football team, glorious SEVILLA F.C.:

********** 2006 UEFA CUP CHAMPION **********
********* 2006 UEFA SUPER-CUP WINNER *********
********** 2007 UEFA CUP CHAMPION **********
******** 2007 SPAIN KING'S CUP CHAMPION ********
******** 2010 SPAIN KING'S CUP CHAMPION ********

Sorry my bad English.

meloncio: <Jim> What about Jairzinho (1970 team)? And Toninho Cerezo & Junior (1982 team)? The weakest side of Brazil was always the goalkeeper. Except when Leao, they never had a "decent" one in 70-80s WC. That's only my opinion of course.

Feb-14-12  Nemesistic: Bulgaria in 94 too... Messi got another CL goal and assist as well tonight, genius total genius..

  Jim Bartle: This video showing Lampard's shot was no goal is pretty funny:

Feb-15-12  Nemesistic: Lol.

Arsenal are getting steam rolled against Milan! Its 2 zip already!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: I see Brighton Albion scored four goals to Liverpool's three, a real shock I assume. Unfortunately, three of Brighton's were into their own net, so the final score was 6-1.
Feb-20-12  azaris: <Brighton Albion> Hey, they're Gus Poyet's club. Unfortunately his defensive coaching doesn't seem to have improved any since he left Spurs.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: The third own-goal (that's the term, right?) was probably the worst play by a defender I've ever seen.

Feb-20-12  NakoSonorense: Autogol.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Autogol en español, the British announcers usually say own-goal.
Feb-20-12  NakoSonorense: They also say, for example, "one nil" (1-0) or "two nil" (2-0). I like it better than "one oh" or "two oh" like some Americans say.
Feb-20-12  falso contacto: gol en contra por acá.
Feb-20-12  falso contacto: horrible, que se dedique a otra cosa.
Feb-21-12  azaris: <Dunk> Maybe he should've played basketball instead.
Premium Chessgames Member
  meloncio: <JimB><own-goal> Por aquí "Gol en propia meta". <fc> Spanish football journalists like to imitate Argentinian football terms: cancha, arquero, Clásico, taquito, penal, etc are new terms we can read everyday around here.
Feb-21-12  NakoSonorense: Having never heard the term about seven or eight years ago, I said "self-goal." Needless to say, I got some weird looks from the people I was playing with.
Premium Chessgames Member
  valiant: <selfgoal> That's what we call it in Scandinavia ... Top Ten Självmål/Selvmål
Feb-22-12  azaris: In Liverpool they call them carraghers. I know this because whenever an own goal occurs it says "Carragher (OG)" on the scoresheet.
Feb-23-12  Nemesistic: Its been 'Own goal' and '1-0 (one nil) since us English invented football... We just sold the patent around 1950 lol when we had whats generally regarded as England's worst ever defeat (And as you can imagine thats up against some pretty stiff competition lol)... It was..... USA 1 ENGLAND NIL !! 1950

Some reporters at the time over here didn't believe we could lose 1-0, so went ahead and reported the game as an 11-nil result in our favour!!! Then came the Hungarians!! At least we won the WC a decade and a half later though :D..

Anyway, Ronaldo scored and could have had 5 in last nights CL game for Real.. I obviously am a Messi fan, but Ronny's getting so close.. If he wins 4 CL's scoring and assisting on Messi's level in every game then i'll put him above Maradona!!

But thats never gonna happen..

And i hope we get to play Portugal in the Euro's so Rooney can get Ronny sent off this time... I'll never forgive his cockey mission accomplished 'Wink' to the portugese bench as Rooney walked past him down the tunnel, and the next day newspaper headline...."YOU WINKER" ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: I don't see Ronaldo making great passes to set up goals the way Messi has so often, but maybe I'm not paying attention.
Feb-23-12  Nemesistic: No, you're definately paying attention Jim, Ronaldo's a greedy player which must not make him popular with his team mates, but when you pull in €1 million A MONTH, i guess he'll get over it!

But you're correct.... Messi over Ronaldo anyday if i were a manager

Premium Chessgames Member
  valiant: Archie Gemmill over any player ...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Unfortunately, if I remember right, Scotland had somehow already lost to Peru and only tied Iran by the time of that great play against Holland.
Feb-23-12  Nemesistic: Will the scots ever quit it with that one goal by a balding, beer guzzling midget ;(.. Lol

Seriously though... REMEMBER 66?? " I still see that tackle by Moore, and when Lineker scored, Bobby belting the ballllll...and Nobby dancing, THREE LIONS ON OUR SHIRTS"! :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  meloncio: <Buenos Aires train station accident> I hope our friend <falso contacto> & family be OK. My condolences for suffering people.
Premium Chessgames Member
  meloncio: <Nemesistic><USA 1 ENGLAND NIL !! 1950> England also lost to Spain 1-0 in that WC,

<REMEMBER 66?? > Yes, everybody remember a non-existent goal in the final game. It won a World Cup :-)
