Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-08  jovack: Shirley looks very bad... even relatively inexperienced players can last longer than ~10 moves by just developing pieces blindly.

Perhaps he should post up more of his games since I am sure this is an inaccurate representation of his real skill.

Sep-08-08  ruzon: His games make good puzzles for my elementary school chess club.
Sep-08-08  DoctorD: <Ruzon>

Shirley you're not serious.

Sep-08-08  suenteus po 147: <DoctorD> Of course he's serious! And don't call him Shirley...
Sep-22-08  ruzon: Of course I'm serious. R Shirley Jr vs B Wall, 1982 is a great example of a fork, evading a fork, and a skewer, all in 2 moves.
Sep-23-08  DoctorD: The Three Stooges approach to chess?

Yes I am serious - and stop calling me Shirley!
