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.

   Bishoprick has kibitzed 407 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-25-20 Balashov vs Ulf Andersson, 1973 (replies)
Bishoprick: What is the matter with the simple Rxh7-Kg8, Rh8-Kg7, Qh7 ++??
   Jul-01-20 S Levitsky vs Marshall, 1912
Bishoprick: You might want to look at Nicolas Rossolimo vs Paul Reissmann. Before Reisman's resignation, Rossolimo leaves his queen "en prise" three different ways, any of which will lead to Reisman being mated.
   Jun-24-20 B F Winkelman vs G N Treysman, 1936 (replies)
Bishoprick: Wow! Some attack!
   Jun-01-20 F Visier Segovia vs J Betancort Curbelo, 1968
Bishoprick: Very similar to his game against Tal, which Segovia won in similar fashion
   May-24-20 Birbrager vs Tal, 1953 (replies)
Bishoprick: Whenever there's a sacrifice, by Tal or anyone else, there are always kibitzers, wise people, who will find a hole in the combination. That is not difficult to do with all the time in the world, and a possible assist from a computer. But at the board, with the clock ticking, it ...
   May-18-20 B Spycher vs Piket, 1986
Bishoprick: Andrew Martin discusses the variation in his Winning with the King's Indian. He found it worth a shot. But this was a long time ago. I tried it once against a 1900 player, and to my surprise, I won. But I wouldn't try it now-a-days.
   Mar-19-20 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
Bishoprick: An Englishman, I believe they are Horowitz bishops, but I could be wrong.
   Jan-24-20 L Matibet vs Guadin, 1962
Bishoprick: Why is this classified as a Semi-Slav, when it is clearly a Cambridge Springs?
   Jan-05-20 E Torre vs Unzicker, 1981 (replies)
Bishoprick: In answer to Benzol's question: Rooking someone is to cheat him. Question answered?
   Dec-26-19 A Firouzja vs D Dubov, 2019 (replies)
Bishoprick: Why not 38. ... R. a8?
