Now living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I grew up in several places in Canada and the U.S. as my father was in the Canadian navy. I learned chess at 12 and played in high school and the RA club in Ottawa, but my rating never rose above 1500. I've come back to playing only recently (I'm now in my 50's, born the same year as Kevin Spraggett).

Now I live and work in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Not much opportunity to play here yet, but I'm hoping.

PhilFeeley: I know Alekhine is better than me (and almost everybody else) but I'm having trouble understanding his notation at move 18. How does 20...bxd4 win a piece? He's already sacked his knight and the bishop is attacked twice. I've played through it in my mind but I still don't see it.

PhilFeeley: I got the first move - not much else.

PhilFeeley: He's now 65. Happy birthday! Now he can collect CPP just like me.
   Nov-10-19 S Guliev vs Bologan, 1993
PhilFeeley: Definitely should be a game of the day someday. Quite the battle.

PhilFeeley: The table is upside-down!

PhilFeeley: Good to see England rebound to 3rd. Also, nice to see Ukraine in 2nd.
   Oct-29-19 G Jones vs P Carlsson, 2019
PhilFeeley: Black had nothing to do after he closed the queenside. 27...Rb7 certainly didn't help.
