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.

   Nov-14-19 A Turner vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
Bishoprick: Turner learned to play chess from a book he read while he was recovering from a service incurred injury, and convalescing at a Navy hospital. He had never played chess before that, at least that is what he told me. Wish I knew which book that was. Incidentally, he was a fabulous ...
   Nov-14-19 Reshevsky vs R Weinstein, 1963
Bishoprick: Raymond was one of our most gifted players at that time. He was a warm friend, and I had the chance to play skittles with him while at Brooklyn College. What happened to him was a true tragedy (as well as to his victims), but also a great loss to American chess.
   Nov-12-19 T Ernst vs J O Lind, 1990
Bishoprick: Andrew Martin, in "Winning with the King's Indian" (1989)recommended it. Although no master, I, I used it once, and to my surprise actually won. May work at club level.

Bishoprick: HorsePlay: Lost but now found. Last post a decade ago. Does this work for black. 35...Be3+ 36. Rf2 Qg3+ 37. Kh1 Qh4+ 38. Kg1 Qxf2+ 39. Kh1 Qh4+ 40. Kg2 Qg3+ 41. Kh1 Qh3#. Mate?? Or am I still lost? You are absolutely right. The Rook can't go anywhere, because
   Oct-25-19 Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820
Bishoprick: Able was I ere I saw Elba
   Aug-19-19 O Chajes vs Reti, 1923 (replies)
Bishoprick: I like the Englishman's comment.
   Aug-18-19 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1991
Bishoprick: Not really a problem. White is a Knight ahead, and all he has to do is exchange piece, while being careful not to lose any.
   Aug-08-19 T Maenhout vs J Ashwin, 2009
Bishoprick: What's going on here? Black has mate on the move. Clock win for White?
   Jul-18-19 Alatortsev vs G Goldberg, 1932 (replies)
Bishoprick: Can anyone tell me what is the matter with the simple 25. Q-g5? Seems to force the sacrifice of the the Black queen, and after that it is pure wood chopping.
   Jul-13-19 Fischer vs Najdorf, 1962
Bishoprick: Can anyone tell me what happens if Black takes the pawn e4 on move 7? I really don't see it.
