   Feb-23-05 G Huber vs D Feoktistov, 2004
 
rayzor: This game is from the round-robin play-off tournament which Greg won to earn the FM title. All of those games were active chess (30 minutes for the game), and I believe Black lost on time in this game.
 
   Nov-10-04 K Spraggett vs F South, 1976 (replies)
 
rayzor: According to Shredder, Black found the best defensive moves up until 13... e6, where a6 might have allowed him to suffer a little longer. White clearly has enough for the Queen at all stages. Note that White can trap the Black Queen with 10. cxb7+ and 11. Be3, but the line played ...

rayzor: BTW, I think Robert North and Robert South have played each other. If not, they ought to. :-)

rayzor: Programs are tactical wizards, but are still highly vulnerable in certain types of positions. I recently beat a top program twice in three games, in a manner similar to Kasparov's game 3 against X3D Fritz. (Both games were KID Samish variations with a locked center, where the program
 
   Nov-05-04 Robert Gardner (replies)
 
rayzor: "Rocket" Rob Gardner is an Alberta master. His career highlights include a win over IM Igor Ivanov (at his peak), and a number of draws against grandmasters.
 
   Nov-05-04 Kevin Spraggett (replies)
 
rayzor: Kevin is definitely the strongest player Canada has produced to date (much stronger than the 5 or 6 GMs that preceded him). It will be up to the younger players to prove that they are his equal or better. Lesiege still has the potential, and young GM Bluvshtein is a rising star, ...
 
   Nov-01-04 Larsen vs Deep Thought, 1988 (replies)
 
rayzor: If I am not mistaken, this is an important game in history: the first time that a computer program defeated a human grandmaster under normal tournament conditions. - rayzor
 
   Nov-01-04 Jeff Reeve (replies)
 
rayzor: Jeff is a strong master (highest rating of 2400, currently 2350) who has competed in the Canadian Championship numerous times. Jeff has a Ph.D. in Biology, specializing in genetics and evolution.
 
   Nov-01-04 Igor Vasilievich Ivanov (replies)
 
rayzor: Igor won the Canadian Championship four or five times in the 1980s (ahead of the very strong GM Kevin Spraggett). Igor won the annual Churches' Grand Prix nine times (!), and was considered to be the strongest IM in the world at that time. He has had many GM norms in his career, but ...
 
   Oct-31-04 Gregory Huber
 
rayzor: Greg was awarded the title of FIDE master (FM) after the Canadian Championship in 2004, where he won a 5-player playoff tournament (+3 =1 -0) for the title.
