Mar-19-04  thefrogspitit: Where the heck is this guy? Did they forget to sign him up for annotated game series on I miss him,'s prolly coffee and donut gobbler Tony Rook's doings. Argghh
Mar-19-04  Larsker: Yea - I miss my daily fix of flash games too.
Mar-22-04  thefrogspitit: yea larsker, agreed this sucks...we should start a petition to get his games back on the air...heck, if i had to contribute a donation i'd do it--if he'd do one once or twice a week, dang...i miss his games--they were helpful...he did some neat he got all excited, and that was cool!
Mar-22-04  shr0pshire: I would pay money to hear his lectures with Dennis Monokrousis again, among the others at I am also very disappointed about what happened to It was a great site, and Bill Paschall had excelllent analysis. I loved his weekly flash video lectures.
Mar-23-04  WMD: Monokroussos's section is called Great Games of Chess History. So why is the latest installment the "Games of NM Dennis Monokroussos"?
Mar-23-04  Lawrence: <WMD>, just ask Dennis's mother whether or not those games aren't great.
Mar-23-04  AdrianP: <All> Dennis Monokroussos has moved over to Radio Chessbase - you need some chessbase software (and Windows Media Player 9) to listen to his presentations but it's possible that you can do it with their free client. Listening live is, I think, free but some of the archived stuff you need to pay 1 ducat (Chessbase currency: ~8 US cents, I think) to replay.

As for Bill Paschall, Mark Diesen and Pete Tamburro - your guess is as good as mine. is apparently going through a metamorphosis into a "supersite" in conjunction with the ICC - presumably this means same old stuff but you'll have to pay for it :-(

Mar-23-04  Larsker: I'm prepared to pay. These guys are spending time doing what they are doing, there are costs for servers, programming, etc. If they want a reasonable fee, it's OK with me.
Aug-16-04  Kaspy2: chessbase radio is airing this stuff now beside bittorrent

  chancho: I witnessed Paschall in
a game against Nick De Firmian who had Queen and Rook against Paschall's lone queen. Paschall beat him on time.
Sep-12-05  RookFile: Well, you know his handle on icc
is mrserious. Just send him a message if you want to contact him. Last I heard, he was in Hungary.
Dec-16-05  Pobble: Go to if you want to see him giving lessons in video format, bare in mind though, it is a pay site.
Dec-28-06  laskereshevsky: HELLO
BILL is a nick-name, isnt it?!

Feb-12-07  geraldo8187: this guy is an awesome lecturer over at the site. anyone know how active he is as a tournament player?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: I love Bill Paschall's lectures from He really taught me a few things about chess, and that's a sincere compliment because I certainly cannot say that about every lecturer.
Aug-18-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: the only two sites i'm on every day...chessgames and chesslecture...having someone explain the 'whys' of a move sure gives learning chess a whole new perspective
Dec-07-07  RookFile: I think he's a nice guy, and I've learned a lot from the multiple times he's beaten me.
Dec-10-07  Riverbeast: You've never had him kick you under the table or bang pieces when you've played him
Dec-10-07  RookFile: Well, I've played him 6 times and he's always been a perfect gentleman. I saw him get upset one time over the result of a blitz game, but then again, I myself have done this.
Feb-15-09  laskereshevsky: I heard by chess-tournaments "rumours" that he'll be very soon made father by his wife...

Congratulations and many wishes!...

Jul-11-10  splatty: Good chess lectures.
