Member since Feb-23-04 · Last seen Sep-25-22
I live in Tappan, NY. My favorite player is Tal, although I also like Alekhine and early Karpov. Long ago, Tarrash was my favorite. My "current" rating is 1898, although if I were active I don't think I could maintain that. I've been a couple of hundred points higher, but that too was a long time ago.

   Feb-05-22 A Feuerstein vs E Marchand, 1954
Bishoprick: Sadly,I was notified today (2/5/2022)that Arthur Feuerstein, aged 86, has died. He was a very fine chess player, and a real gentleman.
   Jan-31-22 Bob Brooks vs B Wall, 1973
Bishoprick: Re Cheapo by the Dozen's 16 d4? It also looses. Takes a bit more time, but the end is the same.
   Dec-08-21 D Ponziani vs NN, 1769 (replies)
Bishoprick: Has NN ever won any game? Why does he keep playing?
   Nov-17-21 Nimzowitsch vs Stoltz, 1934 (replies)
Bishoprick: Black Queen trapped after 13 moves! Wish I could do that!
   Nov-02-21 Tiviakov vs Ponomariov, 2001 (replies)
Bishoprick: You start by knowing that this is a puzzle, and that the first move has to be a forcing move, preferably a check. The only available check is Nh3, which also happens to fork the white queen. Not difficult at all.
   Oct-21-21 P Krueger vs Gruenfeld, 1923
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White lost. Seems like a perfectly even position. Did someone's flag fall?
