Sally Simpson
Member since Jan-28-14
I'm Geoff Chandler

'Sally Simpson' is the title of my favourite Who song.

I learned how to play chess when I was 6 or 7 by watching my father. He was playing dominoes at the time and I kept telling him what to play.

Eventually he locked me in a cupboard under stairs where I found an old chess set, a torch and a Fred Reinfeld book on Opening Traps.

I was in that cupboard for 18 years, when I came out I was a chess genius.

Favourite player Tarrasch.

If you fancy something different. I do this.

Sally Simpson: Yes Rxf7+ was great to see though if I saw it without knowing the result I would have still thought it drawn. The white king looked too open to Queen checks. Carlsen's will to win and OTB skill is tremendous. The only thing that worried me was 3 fold rep. I thought I spotted ...

Sally Simpson: It is indeed sad. Sad that here (Black to play) [DIAGRAM] We were not treated to the possible idea behind Carlsen's 15...c5 inviting the Knight fork on c6. There is a Rook Sac, Knight sac, Bishop sac pep check in there. (there may be more but I'd take the perpetual, it was

Sally Simpson: My look at game 5 Nice double Rook sac and Bishop sac from Giri which I give credit too and a nice drawing of a gangster in a car, but other than that I would not bother. The game is a non-event.

Sally Simpson: Hello Again Miss Scarlett, Sorry to trouble you again but you are the only person I know who has the power. The thread titles for the championship games. It looks like we are going to have 14 active threads all titled: Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 Which is bound to lead ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Diademus, Yes, there are quite a few back to back draws in there. The cool position I reached was from here. [DIAGRAM] After the plausible moves 34. Ra2 Rb3 35. d6 Ne6 36. h4 Rb2 37. Rxa3 Rxa3 38. Re8 we get too here. Black to play - White is threatening Rg8 mate. ...

Sally Simpson: ' Most precise and accurate game ever played in a World Championship?' There were no mistakes in this World Championship game Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 even the strongest computers cannot find one. I've noted up Game 3

Sally Simpson: HI saffuna, "Nepo said he played 24...c3 to stop white attacking via Rd4-h4, as the pawn would queen before the attack could break through. Still an odd choice." [DIAGRAM] Which indeed it does but I also had it pegged as creating a passed a-pawn. I've done Game 2. (with the

Sally Simpson: A Picture of me outside the wrong play hall with my fake ticket. Also Game One looked at (I won't say analysed - just surface 'as I see it' comments and not mauled to death by a machine.) The bowler hat, green jacket and spotted shirt is ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Miss Scarlett, According to Wiki and his page seems well researched, he '...had accumulated a lot of leave and he spent 1841 to 1843 in the UK." Could be as simple as that, a holiday. Regarding my, Alan and Tony's interest in this matter I think the answer will be by ...

Sally Simpson: See Above I thought well the lad had given adverts for these vids on a few threads. I'll try anything to do with chess once. You never know it might be one of the very few I like. He is correct - You can watch a video of this chess game. None of them have any sound! (good ...
