|Feb-14-07|| ||juan31: I agree whit " Tactic101"
|Feb-14-07|| ||Delusional Patzer: |
Seeing the connection here?
|Feb-14-07|| ||farrooj: <delusional patzer> LOL!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone|
|Feb-14-07|| ||mack: Perhaps Jonathan Sarfati, a regularish poster here, could cast some light on the mysterious Mr. Love.|
|Feb-14-07|| ||AAAAron: Love is in the air, every time I look around!|
|Feb-14-07|| ||DennistheMenace: <I don't know much, but I know I love you, and that may be all I need to know.>|
|Feb-14-07|| ||hope62: Perhaps AJ Love is the author of the chess book "Further chess ideas in chess" by the way ,in my opinion, a very good instructional book|
|Feb-14-07|| ||Mac3: A J Love known as Tony Love was and perhaps still is a chess player from the Otago Chess Club in Dunedin.
Tony was very active as a young chess player going on to represent NZ Internationally, as well as being a solid contender at the NZ Championships.
As can be seen Tony enjoyed playing the Sicilian Dragon, and he often enjoyed playing the Ruy Lopez Exchange as White (though no games have been uploaded).
It is notable that Tony should appear as player on such an auspicious day! Some years ago there was an Irish Woman Chess player who spent some time at the Otago Chess Club and when she left to go back to Ireland Tony was love sick.
The last time I saw him some fifteen odd years ago was at the Carisbrook sports ground in Dunedin where he had a banner with a marriage proposal to this woman.
Being an International game there was a chance that she might see it and a match made over the chess board would be the result. Certainly the Television camera's obliged, after all cricket is about how to bowl a maiden over :-)
Alas this risky gambit does not appear to have paid off and so it did seem serendipitous that Chessgames should make such a fitting choice for player of the day ;-)|
|Feb-15-07|| ||brankat: <Mac3> Thank You so much for Your post. Quite enlightening for the rest of us! Well, certainly for me :-)|
|Feb-15-07|| ||Benzol: It's been some time since he appeared on the New Zealand ratings list.|
|Feb-14-10|| ||laskereshevsky: Player of the St. Valentine'S day
I wonder if here on CG we could say:...
|Feb-14-10|| ||whiteshark: Is it his crew? http://www.guerilla-marketing.com/w...|
|Aug-23-10|| ||Dredge Rivers: There's no love like Anthony Love! :)|
|Oct-17-10|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Yes, I knew Tony Love for years, going back to school days (he is about 4 years older). We had a lot of hard battles. We also roomed together at our first Olympiad, Dubai 1986.|
|Oct-17-10|| ||Dredge Rivers: They call him...
|Oct-17-10|| ||Benzol: 0-0-0 Licensed to win.|
|Feb-14-11|| ||newzild: I never met Tony Love, but he is a bit of a legend on the New Zealand chess scene. His name appeared near the top of the NZ ratings lists when I started playing, in 1995-96.|
I wonder where he is now?
|Feb-14-13|| ||Abdel Irada: New Zealand. Hmm. Apparently no relation to my old Mechanics' Institute rival, Elmer Love.|
|Feb-14-13|| ||waustad: The last games I've found for him were in 1998. He hasn't played a FIDE rated game since 2000. Of course that doesn't exclude the posiblity of his playing in local events.|
|Feb-14-13|| ||Cibator: <hope62>: The author you're thinking of was John F Love - no relation as far as I know. Agree with you entirely about "Further Chess Ideas", which I found a great help in my mid-teens. JFL was also joint editor of an excellent (but sadly short-lived) little magazine called "Junior Chess" during the early 1960s.|
|Feb-14-13|| ||amaurobius: <Cibator> I borrowed John Love and John Hodgkins' "Chess Ideas for Young Players" (written presumably prior to FCI) from the local library in the late 60s. It was fun and easy to read and I learned enough from it to beat most of my schoolmates. Never heard of either of the authors since. Thanks for bringing back the memory.|
|Feb-14-13|| ||SirChrislov: He played a decent game against my former instructor Eduard Gufeld, even though the result was based on the passed pawn favored by some "adjudicators" |
Gufeld vs A J Love, 1986
|Feb-14-13|| ||SteinitzLives: The Nutty Professor was Buddy Love.|
|Mar-30-13|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: <SirChrislov>, indeed that was a good resistance. While I dislike adjudications, this seems to have been the correct verdict.|
|Apr-10-19|| ||perfidious: They call him <Dr Love>...|
