|May-25-05|| ||soberknight: Was he a White Fang? (I don't intend to be racist.)|
|Mar-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: No, that only means he was playing white...Of course his favorite opening was the (Jack) London System.|
|Jun-28-08|| ||apexin: a fairly recent game of joseph fang:
[Event "7th Foxwoods Open"]
[White "Fang Joseph"]
[Black "Cherniack Alex"]
1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 c6 3. d4 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Bg5 h6 6. Bxf6 gxf6 7. e4 dxe4 8. Nxe4 f5 9. Nc3 Bg7 10. Qd2 c5 11. d5 e5 12. Be2 O-O 13. O-O Nd7 14. Rad1 Qf6 15. g3 b6 16. Nh4 Bb7 17. Qc2 e4 18. f3 Qg5 19. fxe4 Qe3+ 20. Kh1 Bxc3 21. Nxf5 0-1
an interesting game from theoretical point of view featuring the rare 6...gxf6 in the semi-slav, but why did black resign?

21...Qg5 and i cant see i win for white after 22.Qxc3.
|Jun-28-08|| ||RookFile: One way for white to win is 21...Qg5 22. Rf4.|
|Jun-29-08|| ||apexin: thank you <RookFile> i completely overlooked that! the line i saw first was something like 21...Qg5 22.Qxc3 Kh7 23.h4 Qf6 where white is probably winning due to 24.Qxf6 Nxf6 25.Nh6+ but 22.Rf4 is a simpler win.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||waustad: Sadly I don't see any C27 openings, the Frankenstein-Dracula variation of the Vienna Game.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||HeMateMe: He was a bulldog, on defence.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||kdogphs: I watched Mr. Fang play at the Nashua Open this past year in New Hampshire, he played King's Indian against an IM (I believe)and won rather handily.|
|May-24-14|| ||waustad: He's too young to have been married to Phyllis Diller.|
|Aug-12-17|| ||morfishine: Hard to believe Joe Fang only has 70 games in the database. He's been collecting high-rated scalps for years. I remember reading about his games in the 1980's in Chess Life|
Maybe I'm confusing him with "Max the Axe" Zavanelli
