   Jun-27-20 Woodrow Wilson (replies)
JimNorCal: I'll support this. "Since Princeton University is removing Woodrow Wilson's name from its buildings due to his racist thinking and policies, I think we should also repeal the Federal Income Tax and The Federal Reserve, as both acts were signed into law by Wilson. Letting either ...

JimNorCal: Nice to "see" you, WannaBe! Hope all is well.
   Jun-15-20 Lajos Portisch
JimNorCal: No one cares what I think about it, but I'm gonna tell you anyway :) :) "That's the kind of self-congratulating thing immensely talented people say." It's a self-deprecating statement like "aw shucks, I ain't no genius". But actually they DO have talent, they're just being modest.
   Jun-09-20 G A Thomas vs Nimzowitsch, 1929
JimNorCal: Yes, it's white's choice whether to go for a win. Black can't save the b-pawn, he can only hope his counterattack on the kingside will balance the situation. I guess Sir GAT was happy to get a draw.
   Jun-05-20 Schlechter vs Meitner, 1899 (replies)
JimNorCal: Gorgeous finish!! 28. ... Qe7 probably holds the balance?
   May-17-20 USSR Championship (1940)
JimNorCal: I filed a correction slip. Thanks, <Russian Patzer> The line above talks about the following year's championship so maybe the error is related to that.

JimNorCal: "Bobby Fischer never claimed Staunton was one of the ten best organisers of all time." Yes, well, was there a later interview with Bobby where he said calling Staunton a strong player was a practical joke? Because a bunch of Bobby's rivals suddenly sat up and were alarmed. "Bobby ...
   May-14-20 F Reinfeld vs T Dunst, 1931 (replies)
JimNorCal: <Tamale>: "what I meant to say 8 years ago" LOL
   May-10-20 Dale A Brandreth
JimNorCal: Haven't heard about his library or collections, but then--who would inform me LOL? re: jnpope's inquiry above, some friends and I converted a bunch of DN games from a tournament to PGN notation. It's so long ago that I no longer even recall which tournament. Dale said we'd be ...
   May-06-20 Tim Krabbe
JimNorCal: Thanks, WannaBe :) We're doing quite well, wife working from home, the kid doing "distance learning" for school. I'm retired now, wish I could travel, etc .... I miss the chance to play at the Palo Alto Cafe on Fridays.
