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: What happens on Bxf7+?
   Jul-28-21 Bacrot vs P Ponkratov, 2021 (replies)
Bishoprick: Spigo, Qb8 + and Blck is busted.
   Jul-06-21 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)

   Jun-18-21 Lars Erik Zwisler vs L F Pedersen, 2019 (replies)
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White resigned. Anyone can tell me?
   Jun-05-21 Rossolimo vs W J Muhring, 1949
Bishoprick: He could have been one of the great ones, if poverty hadn't intervened. But he was a true artist of the chess board.
   May-31-21 Rossolimo vs P Reissmann, 1967 (replies)
Bishoprick: Got a draw once against Nick in an friendly game in his studio. Same opening. Wish I could remember how I did it. As to that fall that killed him, the story was that he was quite drunk at the time. Nice guy. Sad ending.
   May-22-21 Milton Finkelstein
Bishoprick: My first real job was at a junior high school in Manhattan, where Milton Hanauer and Milton Finkelstein were principal and assistant principal. Although both were much better players than I, we had some lovely lunchtimes together. Finkelstein could do a complete knight's tour ...
   Mar-20-21 C Trimborn vs F W Pelzer, 1899
Bishoprick: Yup, that it does. Rule against pawn grabbing in the opening? Development over material gain?
   Mar-19-21 G Ravinsky vs Bronstein, 1953 (replies)
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White didn't play e4xf5 on move 11. Someone please explain.
   Mar-17-21 Kmoch vs Alekhine, 1926 (replies)
Bishoprick: Hans Kmoch was a very pleasant, kind man. I met him while he was secretary of the Manhattan Chess Club, and I a no dues paying member, which he somehow never noticed, a long, long time ago.
