Doctor Aust
Member since Apr-15-11 · Last seen Apr-13-14
Long-retired teenage chess geek now pushing 50. Not had a rating in 30 yrs but it once approached 2000-2100.

   Doctor Aust has kibitzed 17 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Mar-21-14 Keith Arkell (replies)
Doctor Aust: Yep, great result for Keith A winning the European 50+ Individual Championship in Portugal, ahead of the higher-rated Georgian GM Zurab Sturua. Arkell himself has said the games weren't that special (and mostly long) but his winning a probably drawn ending in round 8 in ...
   Oct-10-13 H Lamb vs N Miezis, 2001
Doctor Aust: Before we 'diss' white too much one should note he is a 2100-rated amateur player, nearly 60 at the time of the game, playing against a 30 yr-old GM.

Doctor Aust: Vic's son Dave is still a regular player in the Manchester League. See here: . There are a few of Dave Knox's early games on chessgames. David Knox

Doctor Aust: For the only known game with the original "paper" algorithm, operated by Turing hand-calculating the position assessments, see over here: A Turing vs A Glennie, 1952
   Jul-14-12 A Turing vs A Glennie, 1952 (replies)
Doctor Aust: The game between the 're-programmed' Turochamp engine (playing at 2-ply) and Kasparov is now on chessgames here: Turochamp (Computer) vs Kasparov, 2012

Doctor Aust: In his comments in 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' on the famous game Bronstein-Darga (1964) [pieces vs pawns] Bronstein vs K Darga, 1964 - David Bronstein notes that he and Darga were both '2nd reserves' for the 1970 World v USSR Match of the Century, but that neither of then got
   Mar-31-12 Chiburdanidze vs Short, 1983 (replies)
Doctor Aust: At the time this game was played Short was 17 (or maybe 18 by the odd month) and an IM. Maia C was 23, also an IM and already womens' world champion for several years. So they might have been not too far apart in playing strength (though probably with the edge to Maia, I ...

Doctor Aust: Remember losing to this chap when he was an Oxford Univ student - then graded c 200 ECF / 2250 ELO. He is now a Professor of Pure Mathematics:
   Oct-30-11 A King
Doctor Aust: Given the dates of three UK games (late 70s), good chance it was GM Daniel King's elder brother Andrew, as GBKnight pointed out (Oct-15-05). He is/was a couple of years older than Daniel and was a 2000-2100 rated junior player in his mid to late teens (around the time of the ...
   Oct-30-11 Timman vs Adams, 1995 (replies)
Doctor Aust: I would say Adams was comprehensively 'out-booked' here, since the whole game up to Black's 19th move (by which time he is dead lost) follows a game between Zoltan Ribli and the Dutch IM Coenraad Zuidema from Wijk aan Zee 1973: Ribli vs C Zuidema, 1973 Timman and Zuidema had ...
