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: *** Larsen often expressed views that caused mild controversy. In a Kingpin interview: What do you consider to be your greatest weakness as a chess player? "No respect for authority." What is your greatest strength? "No respect for authority." He also appreciated the games

Sally Simpson: *** [DIAGRAM] That 23...Rc3 is a tough OTB find. It belongs in one of those 'find the hot move' puzzle books. The key square c6 is covered, easily missed. Geller seemed not to be in the mood and appears to give up, maybe he spotted what he should have done after 23...Rxd4 and
