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: *** The first post mentioned this: If the title was backdated to this match (1866) and Steinitz lost it in 1894 - that makes 28 years. The opening piece here says 26 years making it appear Steinitz lost the title in 1892 which was the last time he successfully defended it. ...
