Dec-12-03  ughaibu: David Goodman was world under 18 champion in 1976 or thereabouts but he seemed to completely drop off the scene. Judging by this game that was a real pity.
Jun-16-04  Hinchliffe: Can anyone add to ughaibu comments and tell me /us what became of Mr.Goodman please?

  ray keene: he is alive and well and working for associated press in new york where i believe he also gives chess lessons
Jun-16-04  Hinchliffe: <ray keene> Thanks Ray. Judging from this game it's a pity he doesn't continue to play competitively.

  jaime gallegos: great game !
How many good chessplayers as David Goodman currently didnt play ?
Jul-13-04  vonKrolock: at first sight, 8...gxf6 seems more coherent as attempt to refute the Qf5 var. than 8...Qxf6 as played in Keene-Ljubojevic, Moscow 1977; the same on 12...e4 (though 12...h6 Qd 14.e4 Qb3 15.Bb1 Nxd4 etc from Fedorovicz-Tarjan 1977 looks ok too) 17.Ne4!! is a pleasant rejoinder, and 18...Qxc2 19.Nf6+ 19.e4! is "knife and cheese" for White... I'll like to know what Goodman intended against 17...Nd5!? - its worth a while... <ray> if all the brothers-in-law played Chess like DG...
Jul-13-04  Bobo Lo: I remember David Goodman from Oxford days. He played for a very strong Keble team which also included Steve Giddins and Adrian Hollis (one of the World's strongest correspondence chess players). Fortunately, we (Merton) had William Watson (later a strong GM), Dugald Macpherson and then later IM Ken Regan from the US!
Jul-13-04  Lawrence: Junior 8 thinks that against 7.♕f5 ♗e7 gives equality whereas

7.♗d3 g6
8.a3 ♗f8
9.h3 d6
10.0-0 gives White an edge. (10 min. search)

Apr-15-09  WhiteRook48: he's a Goodman
Mar-26-10  Retireborn: Does anybody know the occasion of this game? I assume it was a weekend congress, does anybody know where/what month it was played?
May-10-17  whiteshark: This game tracks Jimmy's transformation into David Simon Charles Goodman, the man who puts "check" in "checkmate".
May-18-18  Retireborn: Eight years on, but I supppose still nobody knows....
