Aug-27-04  wall: Maybe Black is winning after 31...Rh3+ instead of the drawish 31...e4. 34.Rd1 looks stronger than the 34.Ra5 move played in the game. Perhaps 36.Bd4 instead of 36.Ke3. After the game move 36...Be5, if 37.Kxe4 f6 38.f4 f5+ 39.Ke3 Bd6 40.Ra5 and perhaps White is winning with the extra pawn and bishops of the same color.
Aug-28-04  Minor Piece Activity: Are you Bill Wall?
Aug-28-04  Lawrence: <Minor Piece Activity>, for an elusive answer to your question, see

J Tamargo vs Fischer, 1956

I'll bet it IS <Bill>. The man seems to be a human dynamo. Works through 6 or 8 or 10 Fischer games, with multi comments on all of them, in the time it takes me to drink a cup of tea.

Aug-29-04  wall: But then I could be Brian Wall, master from Colorado. Or Larry Wall who writes Perl scripts. Or someone from Wall Drug. Or someone who likes Pink Floyd. Or just someone who likes to make off the wall comments (or kibitz and blitz).

At least you didn't say, "I might be the Wallrus, koo koo kachoo."

or that marsupial of chess, Bill Wallaby
