  perfidious: This fantastically complicated struggle is a slugfest, even for a game involving Curdo, who was never known to shy away from complications when necessary.

Hard to believe I don't remember it, because I also played this event at Leominster. A battle royal indeed.

May-23-14  Conrad93: Yes, Perfidious. You are so good...
We all worship your self-acclaimed superiority.

You've played them all from Tal to God himself.

May-23-14  N0B0DY: will listen to your concerns!
May-23-14  JohnBoy: Thanks for directing me here <perf>. Very amusing game. I would hate to engage Curdo in such a brawl.

  perfidious: <JohnBoy> Always like to dig up some interesting alternatives to oft-discussed games with which many here are familiar.

You may be sure that none of the 35-40 games between Curdo and I over more than two decades were quite so ferocious as this: a number of positional struggles were featured, for I had great respect for his tactical acumen.

May-23-14  RookFile: A very interesting game!

  perfidious: The Leominster events were always quite a good time, attracting the strongest players in New England and occasionally from beyond the region. It was most unfortunate that they ceased being a fixture on the scene after 1982.
May-25-16  posoo: LOL Cunrud, even da old posoo wouldnt critacize Porfoodes for bringing up a relevunt anecdote about da tornament! If he was THERE he was THERE.
