An Englishman
Member since May-31-04 · Last seen Jul-09-20
I'm a long since retired former master (but never particularly good) whose opening repetoire consisted of the English, Nimzo-Indian and Caro-Kann. I now pursue a career in film, theater and television as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, director, producer and Web content creator.

   Jul-09-20 Showalter vs Taubenhaus, 1889 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Afternoon: <goodevans>, the courtroom was adjourned. No verdict was returned.
 
   Jul-08-20 L McLaren vs A Ismail, 2017 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: 13...Bf4 might have spared Black a little trouble by forcing 14.Be3.
 
   Jul-06-20 Ennio Morricone (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Did not the great composer could play a decent game. Can’t think of a good pun, either; “The Ecstasy of Polgar” is my pathetic best.
 
   Jul-06-20 L Uedemann vs E P Elliott, 1902 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: <Phony Benoni>, I rather like your histories and hope to read more.
 
   Jul-06-20 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2020 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: The game follows such well-known paths in the Semi-Tarrasch that the praise slightly puzzles me. The sequence of d5, e5, and finally Nd4 has appeared before (didn’t Kmoch call it a “sweeper-sealer” pawn sacrifice?). Can’t deny that the finish looks like Fischer ...
 
   Jul-05-20 Vyzmanavin vs Ulibin, 1995 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Ahhhh, another nice, normal ordinary 5/7 week. Vaguely reassuring—brain not dying yet. Went for 17...Nexf2; 18.Bxb7,Ne3, missing 19.Kxf2,Nxc2; 20.Rxc2 with three pieces for the Queen and perhaps fun for both players.
 
   Jul-04-20 K Osterberg vs J Christensen, 1998 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Enterprising Knight sacrifice in the Long Whip that falls short thanks in part to the Rook maneuver from 22-26 which just barely holds the line. Still, White had a good-looking position for a while; did he miss an improvement?
 
   Jul-04-20 E E Book vs G G Alexandrescu, 1936 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: And good job with the pun. Once again, an example of how life in the 3...dxe4 French can go horribly wrong. Black *finally* develops his Bc8 on move 15 only to face the threat of 17.Nxf7. Would 16...Qc8 have improved?
 
   Jul-01-20 K Boehmer vs L Day, 1999 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Odd game—a Tartakower-Wade Defense became an Old Indian Defense became a King’s Indian Defense. With 26.Be3, White hoped to play f4-f5 and Bh6, but fell into a trap: 26...Qe1 threatens 27...Bxh3 and the Rook finally enters the game. Odd indeed, that the Bc8 and ...
 
   Jul-01-20 P Mach vs A Flumbort, 1998 (replies)
 
An Englishman: Good Evening: Certainly appears that Black lost on time. Interesting complications after 26.Bxc8,Bxc8; 27.Ne6 (any other move seems to lose the Queen).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <Deus Ex Alekhina>, I'm afraid you've caught me out--it's been so many years since I lived in England that I've forgotten the lyrics to "You'll Never Walk Alone." Not that I haven't thought about a return some day, but frankly, Brick Lane is probably more my sort of eating.
Oct-16-09  LIFE Master AJ: You are welcome. (And my little comment here gets my own award for "Best use of CG color.")
May-02-10  David2009: Good morning, a follow-up to your comment on Estrin vs J Boey, 1987 White to play 36?:

Against Crafty (see link below), both the game line 36 Ra1 and your line 36 Nd4 will win, but Crafty finds a crafty stalemate defence in the main 36 Ra1 line. So winning may be easier using your move 36 Rd4. Enjoy playing through the alternatives! http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t...

Nov-26-10  David2009: <An Englishman:> (O Almeida vs P Zarnicki, 2002) [snip] <proving that one means of avoiding playing bad moves is not to see them.> I like it!
Mar-23-11  YourNickname: <An Englishman> You are awesome!

  WannaBe: Good evening,

If my memory serves, you are/were living in N. California, I will soon be relocating to San Mateo county area, and would not mind meeting some of the CG.com members.

If, however, you have moved, and/or my faulty memory chip is wrong, kindly disregard this message in its entirety.

Sincerely

Please e-mail me, kstc_jyu at yahoo.com, please, do mention cg.com in case your message ended in my spam box.

May-14-12  El Trueno: Hi! I would like to play chess against you 'cause I like your comments :) it would be helpful for me 'cause I'm studying english at school etc.. :)

Dec-05-12  ChessYouGood: It's ever oh so great to read your profile old chum. In particular, it's lovely to see I am not the only actor, playwright, screenwriter, director and producer around here. I am currently working on "Driving Miss Daisy II: Who's in the Boot?" at the moment. Perhaps we can collaborate!

  An Englishman: <ketchuplover>, for some strange, can't post messages on your page. Anyway, quite a remarkable first round. Keeping my fingers crossed for an exciting tournament.
