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.

   May-23-22 D Rogozenco vs J Gallagher, 1999 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi FSR, I copied and pasted it. It is the way the results are displayed that looks odds. 0-1 does not mean a Black win, it means the player on the right (Joe's team) won. Joe's team won 5 and drew 2 = 6 pts. The other lot won one and drew 2 = 2pts.
   May-23-22 Nunn vs Smeets, 2006
Sally Simpson: 'Not Keeping Score.' How typical is that? It is this kind of lack lustre sloppiness and attitude that is the bane of this site. You are the sites pun-person, how difficult would it be to knock up and post a Pun Table with 'Fame Points' added. At least give us the top five pun

Sally Simpson: What Chess piece jumps around the Australian Bush. A Kangarook.
   May-22-22 Alexander McDonnell (replies)
Sally Simpson: Although "No picture of Alexander McDonnell has ever been found." We can use that one, claim it's genuine and charge people a fee to use it.
   May-21-22 A Kushnir vs Evans, 1975 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi periidious, Thanks, that is a perfect example, a round one loss then 5 wins on the bounce v players outside the top 15, a draw with the 2nd place player and then two wins. Lone Pine (1978) but I'm 100% positive it was not meant, (they very rarely are) this is Larsen whose ...
   May-20-22 Reshevsky vs Kashdan, 1942
Sally Simpson: Can confirm that Reshevsky does mention 37.Bf6+ 38.Qg6 mate in his book saying he missed it due to time pressure. and here; [DIAGRAM] The book (game 97) finishes with the moves being played as 37.Qg6+ Kh8 38.Qh6+ Kg8 39.Qf8+ Kh7 40.Qf7+ and Black resigns.
   May-20-22 I Nei vs Tal, 1971 (replies)
Sally Simpson: The pun writes itself in the header. I. Nei v M. Tal.
   May-20-22 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Sally Simpson: <How well are we doing?> Quite well I'd say. The idea of having a thread for each game, famous, infamous or standard was inspired. Add in the the bio details of the players with the snippets of info in the players thread and that make this place a must see for ...
   May-20-22 L Steiner vs Najdorf, 1937
Sally Simpson: The History of a Variation. Najdorf in his book; 'Life and Games' game 7 mentions that here. [DIAGRAM] 9.Bxe6 as played in A Matanovic vs Gufeld, 1969 is better and winning (I also found on here Parma vs Szabo, 1968 with the same 9.Bxe6 sac) but leaving the 60's and jumping ...
   May-16-22 A Gibaud vs F Lazard, 1924 (replies)
Sally Simpson: I think everyone can accept this game never happened (or if it did then it was a skittles game, later smoothed out a bit, between players unknown though Gibaud was possibly Black.) The Scotsman, 2nd Feb 1929 give this game saying a Mr Rush is the source. You will see it is ...
