Member since Mar-16-06 · Last seen Jul-01-18
Been playing chess for about 30 years, played in my first USCF tnmt in Dec, 1977. Peaked at 1963 in the early 1980's. Haven't played much at the USCF level since around mid-1980's. I am half Japanese and my favorite players are Garry Kasparov and Hikaru Nakamura. In my opinion the best in history were: 1 Garry Kasparov 2 J R Capablanca 3 Bobby Fischer 4 Paul Morphy 5 Anatoly Karpov 6 Alexander Alekhine 7 Emmanuel Lasker 8 Akiba Rubinstein 9 Paul Keres 10 Wilhelm Steinitz

update: (March 14, 2013: If Magnus wins the title he will definitely be on the list)

When I joined I had 14 dogs that I'd rescued over the years. Currently (as of April 15, 2011) I have 11. I have a myspace showcasing my dogs:

14DogKnight: One of the highlights of my chess "career" was a draw against Master Dan Durham at the Riverside Chess Club in the eighties. To be fair though, our game was adjourned and I had a week to study up on R+N vs R endgame. I had the lone rook!

14DogKnight: <wrap99> Yes, he was a professor of statistics at UC Riverside. I used to enjoy watching him and Perry Youngworth play blitz at our club, which ended at UCR and never opened again. Shame.

14DogKnight: "Muzychuk's new hair style, straight instead of curly, seems to be helping her. At 3.0/4 she is only half a point away from Jobava." Crediting her hairstyle for her good play seems a little sexist to me.

14DogKnight: <SirRuthless: <perfidious> Your reading comprehension skills need some serious work. You can save the witticisms for your boyfriend. Censored.> Still mad he stole your boyfriend, eh? Time to move on, Ruth.

14DogKnight: Seems Hammer is benefiting from being Carlsen's second.

14DogKnight: Carlsen wouldn't be a good poker player. He said he thinks about chess all the time.
   Nov-16-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
14DogKnight: I like both players and root for both to play their best. At my age Carlsen may be the last World Champion I'll ever know. I am happy I got to see this endgame wizard play.
