Howard
Member since Oct-09-06 · Last seen Aug-04-20
I live in Toledo, and that will always be my hometown.

I've been an absolute diehard chess buff for at least 45 years, and have been a USCF member since early 1975 !! Not too many of us ultra-longtime members out there.

I also consider myself exceptionally well-informed when it comes to chess history and general chess trivia, especially from 60's, 70's, and 80's.

As for my USCF rating, it's exceptionally low, admittedly. I gotta work on that !

Incidentally, my four favorite players of all time (in no particular order) are Rubinstein, Capablanca, Petrosian, and Karpov.

   Aug-04-20 Fischer vs Stein, 1967 (replies)
 
Howard: Mueller's book on Fischer's games gives several improvements that Fischer apparently had missed. Most of them were found by a Charles Sullivan, who's made a name for himself analyzing well-known games on his computer.
 
   Aug-04-20 A Lombard vs Tal, 1976 (replies)
 
Howard: Very lively game, but it looks as if Tal probably was lost at one point.
 
   Aug-04-20 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984 (replies)
 
Howard: Just checked Kasparov's book, and he states that 26.Rc4! would have won.
 
   Aug-01-20 Timman vs L Day, 1976
 
Howard: CL&R called attention to this game by running the moves (without notes) even though it was "only" a draw. The game took place near the end of the Olympiad when the Dutch team was challenging the Americans for first place.

   Aug-01-20 R Byrne vs Geller, 1976
 
Howard: Byrne's 21.Bc1 was voted the #1 novelty for Volume 20, and by a very substantial margin ! Anyone care to explain why, though ?
 
   Jul-22-20 Sosonko vs E Torre, 1973
 
Howard: Yes, CL&R alluded to this game in a mid-1976 article.
 
   Jul-22-20 H Wolf vs K Treybal, 1922
 
Howard: Sad as it may be, both of these players later lost their lives at the hands of the Nazi's during WWII.

Howard: Speaking of home-grown Ohio matters, does anyone know if the annual Ohio Chess Congress will be taking place this year ?
 
   Jul-21-20 Csom vs Yusupov, 1982 (replies)
 
Howard: Was not even aware that Yusupov had lost a game at the 1982 Olympiad.
