roberts partner: offramp is ridiculously flattering, those numbers are nonsense. I don't play bridge at all, and bullet is much too fast for me. On average, I play two or three 3+2 blitz daily on lichess, most unrated and anonymous but very occasionally rated as roberts partner where I am ...
   May-20-23 R H Newman vs Tolush, 1947 (replies)
roberts partner: Incorrect, the 'radio match' was in 1946. The 1947 match was played over the board in Holborn Town Hall, where I happened to be the wallboard operator for the Newman v Tolush and Abrahams v Bronstein pairings......
   Apr-23-22 L Barden vs W Adams, 1950 (replies)
roberts partner: Phony Benoni: The book was Simple Chess, mailed to me by a friend in New York. although the Two Knights analysis was identical to that in White to Play and Win. At the end of our game I showed Weaver my copy, and asked him to autograph it. He did so, then he turned up the ...
   Feb-27-22 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
roberts partner: That 365Chess file doesn't include Julius Szabo's games at Leipzig, but those games can all be found on Olimpbase.
   Jun-09-21 Hastings (1960/61) (replies)
roberts partner: <MissScarlett>How did L. W. Barden qualify to play in this event? Apart from Cafferty and Green, all the other eight players were invitees. That was normal at Hastings over many decades, just the one qualfying place for the winner of the Premier Reserves Major (later ...

roberts partner: There wasn't any 'Cambridge Open 1952'. The game was played at Cambridge BUCA 1950.
   Jun-01-20 Anthony Henry Knight (replies)
roberts partner: That sounds a correct identification. My mental picture of AH Knight from those two Southsea tournaments is that he was a small, slight man with dark hair, polite and correct to his opponents, and a chain smoker. Britbase has an additional game from Southsea 1949 where ...
   May-02-20 Magnus Carlsen Invitational (2020) (replies)
roberts partner: <This event's been sucking up all the oxygen of publicity. Haven't seen a single mention yet of the <FIDE Online Nations Cup>
   Mar-08-20 NN vs B Goulding Brown, 1912 (replies)
roberts partner: I am now reliably informed that the game ('A friendly game at Cambridge University CC won by B Goulding Brown') was first published on page 558 of the March 1912 Chess Amateur. I have seen a photocopy of the actual page. Therefore the game was played in 1912 at the latest, ...
   Mar-04-20 Otto Friedman
roberts partner: That's Otto Friedman for sure at London 1946. I played him many times in blitz and in tournament games. Some reports misspelt his name. Tall, bald, with remnants of ginger hair and a deep booming voice. A bit pedantic but an intelligent and well educated man.
