Play on the ICC. Looking to play folks in the 1350-1750 range. Like slow time control. Enjoy match's where we play up to a certain number of wins. First to win four, five, ect. Draws not counting, time controls of 120 minutes for 40 moves, or with increments, using 45/45, or 30/30.

   Nov-29-19 Spassky - Fischer World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Joshka: <Sally Simpson> You are welcome. Doesn't the beardless player look a lot like a young Alekhine?? I presume this is Fischer?

Joshka: <SugarDom> I'm surprised that "you tube' still has it up!! They usually take down any videos that cast a negative view on Socialists, Demonrats, ect When the "young Turks" were using her to run for office, she stated 'oh I don't know anything about politics I'm just a ...
   Sep-16-19 Rustem Khazitovich Dautov (replies)
Joshka: <whiteshark> Yes what a coincidence, that Bobby receives letter's from Petra in 1988... he invites her to the US. Then he goes to Europe to stay with her, then she marry's Rustem in 1992. Think in 1991, Zita starts writing Bobby, he invites her to the US, she comes, and then he
   Sep-12-19 T Lichtenhein vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
Joshka: <fearlessone> and since Bobby was very familiar with all of Pauls games, he might have been thinking of this one!
   Sep-05-19 Bill Wall (replies)
Joshka: <wwall> <Caissanist> Bobby would have asked for 25k just to appear!;-) it's always fun to debate the what if's when it came to Fischer....but I've never read anyone talking about the what if, had Spassky just taken his title back to the Soviet Union after the forfeit on ...
   Aug-27-19 Pal Benko (replies)
Joshka: Bobby was always enamored with Benko. He looked up to him, liked his style...the way he handled women, his fashion for clothes, all around tough guy...he just had a tremendous respect for the man. Benko I'm sure always let Bobby know when he was out of line that's for sure.
   Aug-24-19 Boris Spassky (replies)
Joshka: <Sally Simpson> Hey thanks for posting the Spassky interview! First time reading he now regrets that he allowed the 1972 Match to continue!! In hindsight, had he just left Iceland with his title still in tact, who knows the many scenarios that would have been played out!!??
   Jul-28-19 Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858
Joshka: Was this their first encounter? Morphy was so much younger than Anderssen, Anderssen should have been a more even opponent had their ages been equal.
   Jun-19-19 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Joshka: Would 27.Qf3 held?

Joshka: <Larryfyffe> The Eagles recorded a number of great tunes, but were also drug infested in treating the property of others with no respect. Trashing hotel rooms, ect
