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: Wonderful piece on David Hooper here: Some of it could pasted into his bio or the link to it placed next to his wiki entry.
   May-08-21 Bronstein vs E Rojahn, 1956
Sally Simpson: edit to above post. i looked before I posted if this had been mentioned before. I must of missed (obvioulsy) Gypsy saying the same thing in 2004. Bronstein vs E Rojahn, 1956 (kibitz #5) Messiah bumped the game, I've bumped the post.
   May-06-21 Fischer vs Stein, 1967
Sally Simpson: That is indeed sad news, I expressed concern a few months back as we had not heard not him for a while and he was a regular and good poster. He will be missed here. Rest in Peace.

Sally Simpson: Have a 1954 win v Aitken (good game) will submit it soon.
   Apr-29-21 William Harold Cozens (replies)
Sally Simpson: John has emailed me the following details. William Harold Cozens (20 November 1911 - 16 July 1984) BCM obit, August 1984, p340 W. H. Cozens RIP As we go to press, we learn with deep regret of the death of that great friend and supporter of BCM, W. H. Cozens. A ...
   Apr-28-21 J Aitken vs W H Cozens, 1953
Sally Simpson: From book 14 of the 40 Aitken books. This game had me scratching my head. Here [DIAGRAM] Aitken writes in descriptive 14...KN-Q2. So if you play 14. Nf6-d7 and play out the game you get to here. [DIAGRAM] When White has mate in two with 21.Qxh7+ Then I remembered this ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Tab, So it is Harold. I did a brief surf about but William was all I got. He did others, The Lost Olympiad, one on Tal, etc. also a few non-chess books. But this is the first game I've seen of his. Aitken wins, Cozens makes what could be a T.T. blunder in a dodgy position.

Sally Simpson: My pawn has been stolen (again) and I'm seeing 100's of adverts. Do they do OAP rates? I am not going near the FAQ's and telling them I'm an OAP else I'll get swamped with funeral adverts, (too late I'm getting my bones carved into chess pieces.) Take Care Everyone. Been ...
   Mar-21-21 P Koehn vs Smejkal, 1999
Sally Simpson: It does seem like a premature resignation, though a very depressing position to have to play as white v a very good player. Peter did not have too good a time in the Bundesliga that season. We have him playing 8 and losing 8. Peter Koehn Played over a couple of games, unlucky ...
   Mar-21-21 Horwitz vs Staunton, 1846 (replies)
Sally Simpson: This game was linked to here by Ray Keene from an article about FIDE and Nigel Short. Good game. good article.
