Member since Aug-27-05 · Last seen Aug-15-22
I am Frederick Rhine. The United States Chess Federation awarded me the titles of National Master (at OTB chess) in 1983, and Senior Master of Correspondence Chess in 1997. I played in the 1997 USCF Absolute Championship (open to the top 13 correspondence players who accept their invitations), scoring 6-6 (+2 =8 -2). Alex Dunne wrote in his book on the Absolute Championships, "This was Rhine's only Absolute and he held his own against the best. His two losses were against previous Absolute winners." http://bit.ly/1NB55YP On the USCF's July 2022 list of the top correspondence chess players in the country, I am the third highest rated player, at 2411, just 15 points below the top player. https://www.uschess.org/component/o... The August 2020 issue of Chess Life magazine had a profile of me (for the text, see Frederick Rhine (my August 1, 2020 comment in my forum)).

I attended Lane Technical High School in Chicago with the late Chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello until he moved out of Chicago. Lane's chess team won the Illinois state championship my junior and senior years, becoming the first school ever to win consecutive championships. Albert also became a master, as did my teammates Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus. The late FIDE Masters Albert Charles Chow and Morris Giles were also Laneites.

In July 2013, I played in my second and third regular-rated tournaments of the millennium(!), the Greater Midwest Classic and the Chicago Class (under-2200 section). I tied for second, undefeated, in both, winning $700 and $550, respectively, and brought my rating back over 2200. http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j... http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j...

I have contributed to hundreds of chess-related articles on Wikipedia under the handle Krakatoa, notably "First-move advantage in chess," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-... "George H. D. Gossip," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George... and "Swindle (chess)," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_..., all of which are almost entirely written by me. The first two of those have been Today's Featured Article, the highest honor a Wikipedia article can receive, one attained by about one out of every 1,400 articles. I have received various Wikipedia awards, including the Imperial Triple Crown Jewels and the Timeless Imperial Triple Crown (which only 12 Wikipedians have received). My user page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:K....

I was the proofreader for the book "Triple Exclam!!! The Life and Games of Emory Tate, Chess Warrior." I was a contributor to the Chicago Chess Blog, http://chicagochess.blogspot.com. There, I discovered and documented what Taylor Kingston calls "the Mortimer Effect," which has lowered the Morphy Numbers of many modern players (maybe you!). https://chesscafe.com/the-skittles-...

One hundred and seventeen of my games are in chessgames.com's database. My favorites are F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981, K Thompson vs F Rhine, 1992, and F Rhine vs A Boerkoel, 1996. Rhine-Sprenkle was published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volume 32) and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (2nd ed.) at 183 n.19). In Volume 33 of Chess Informant, my 18th move (18.Nxd6!) in that game was voted the 8th-9th most important theoretical novelty in Volume 32. The game was also cited in MCO-13 and "The Aggressive Nimzowitsch Sicilian 2...Nf6" by Eric Schiller, and occupies an entire chapter in all three editions of "Beating the Sicilian" by John Nunn. It is game 218 in "1000 TN!! The Best Theoretical Novelties" (Chess Informant, 2012).

Thompson-Rhine was published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volume 57), and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (3rd ed.) at 172 n.163). Jeremy Silman discusses the game and my analysis of it in his book "Winning with the Sicilian Defence" (2nd ed.).

Joel Johnson in his book "Attacking 101: Volume #005" says of my blitz game F Rhine vs NN, 2019, "White played a flawless Smith-Morra Gambit that IM Marc Esserman would have been proud of." Georges Koltanowski published F Rhine vs A Artidiello, 1974 in his syndicated newspaper column. Richard J Palliser discusses the opening of F Rhine vs S Nagle, 1997 in his book "tango!"

Jacob Aagaard analyzes the endings of two of my Internet blitz games in his 896-page tome "A Matter of Endgame Technique" (alas, mine was lacking). Cyrus Lakdawala includes my study-like win in F Rhine vs Alex Zhao, 2019 is his book "Tactical Training in the Endgame." He also mentions me, albeit not by name, in his book "In the Zone: The Greatest Winning Streaks in Chess History" when he refers to "The Classical Sicilian, which as one of my atheist students told me, is the closest thing he has to a religion." Cyrus has also said that he intends to mention me in a book on how to play against the King's Indian that I inspired him to write.

Commentator Mato Jelic somewhat extravagantly calls my game E Sollano vs F Rhine, 1977 "The Greatest Ever Blitz Game Played in Chicago." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wl8... See also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWa... Someone also made a video (moves only) of Aagaard vs F Rhine, 2021, a 2-1 bullet game where I drew and should've beaten the grandmaster - if only I'd had time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-O...

My game F Rhine vs NN, 2010 is mentioned in the "Checkmate Patterns Course" by Raf Mesotten and John Bartholomew on chessable.com.

I composed this study, which Pal Benko published in "Benko's Bafflers" in Chess Life, May 2006:

White to play and draw


click for larger view

The solution is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalem... It is based on an earlier study of mine, which Benko also published in his column. Both of these compositions appear in Harold van der Heijden's endgame study database. https://www.chess.com/news/view/76-... The above study is also cited in "The Complete Chess Swindler" by David Smerdon and "Rewire Your Chess Brain: Endgame Studies and Mating Problems to Enhance Your Tactical Ability" by Cyrus Lakdawala.

I was once one of the world's best players at suicide chess (also known as "losing chess"), a chess variant where one wins by giving away all of one's pieces. http://perpetualcheck.com/antichess...

I have successfully submitted 192 puns for Game of the Day. Game Collection: Puns I submitted. User: johnlspouge has remarked, "As far as I can tell, <FSR> is churning out 'actual puns' almost as fast as I can [insert bodily function of choice]." The coveted 2013 Caissar for Best (Worst) Pun went to "Control-Ault-Delete," the pun I submitted for Fischer vs R Ault, 1959, the Game of the Day on December 19, 2012. I won the 2019 Caissar in the same category for my greatest pun ever (and IMO one of the greatest chessgames puns ever) "Late December Back in '63: What a Lady, What a Knight!," N Littlewood vs B Brinck-Claussen, 1963, the Game of the Day on December 30, 2019. Since Caissars are awarded in January, my wins may illustrate recency bias.

I am responsible for World Junior Championship (1957), Vidmar Memorial (1969), Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014), and Game Collection: Drawing lines, among others.

I am a member of the ChessBookie Hall of Fame, having finished fourth in the Summer 2015 Leg, seventh in the Winter 2016 Championship Leg, ninth in the Winter 2017 Championship Leg, ninth in the Spring 2017 Leg, and seventh in the Summer 2017 Leg.

FSR: <perfidious> Indeed. It seems to happen like clockwork.
 
   Aug-15-22 Rubinstein - Marshall (1908)
 
FSR: This match is an interesting data point for those wondering how a world championship match between Lasker and Rubinstein would have gone. Rubinstein eked out a match win by the narrowest possible margin against Marshall. By contrast, Lasker the previous year had obliterated Marshall ...
 
   Aug-11-22 So vs H Melkumyan, 2022
 
FSR: As <Natasha Romannoff> said, <If a world class player like Wesley So 'sacrifices' a piece think twice>. So would not have allowed 18...e4 if the move was any good.
 
   Aug-02-22 Orest Averkin
 
FSR: A very strong player who unfortunately was given very few opportunities to compete outside of the Soviet Union.
 
   Aug-02-22 Averkin vs Ftacnik, 1982 (replies)
 
FSR: White's poor knight on b6 is stranded after 21.Qe1 Na5.
 
   Aug-02-22 Shirov vs Ivanchuk, 1994
 
FSR: A really striking endgame by Shirov.
 
   Aug-02-22 NN vs F Rhine, 2020
 
FSR: <Sally Simpson> In your Red Hot Pawn article you mentioned the game Lord Nelson - christiaanj, which featured Ne7#. Similarly, there is this famous game from a Soviet championship: Tal vs Averkin, 1973 .

Comment: An amusing game, and a comeback from an utterly lost position. In my opinion, for those reasons it warrants inclusion in the database.

  fredthebear: FSR - don't give in to the dork that does not play chess. S/he wants you to post your losses so s/he can ridicule you endlessly. S/he cannot play good chess, so s/he wants to bring you down to her level. S/he's hoping to smear you like s/he does everybody else; the proof is in dork's tens of thousands (different alias) numerous posts attacking others. Her coaxing is a ruse; she wants to put a knife in your back. Don't fall for it. Don't change. These buzzards don't deserve to be respected.

The chess people that still exist on this site appreciate your posts. There is no rule here that says you must post your worst games. Keep the miniatures coming, and those who don't like it can stick it. Jealous haters shouldn't be on this chess site anyway.

  FSR: Thanks, <fredthebear>.
Jun-16-22  Z free or die: I bearly could disagree more - as in more scatology... hidden behind a soliticious complient in usual aw-shucks passive/aggressive fashion.

But who are we to believe?

<<tpstar> Disagree. <zanzibar>'s identity was revealed two years ago, if you were paying attention, then he hasn't used the <z> handle in over a year. He was one of the strongest players here, FIDE 2400, frequently posting puzzles and combinations.>

The truth is out there...

Jul-25-22  Cassandro: Congrats, <FSR>. That was a strong draw against the great Alex Yermolinsky, who BTW is the author of one of my favorite chess books 'The road to chess improvement'. Highly recommended.

  FSR: Thanks, <Cassandro>. I have that book and also his book on the Classical Sicilian (my favorite opening), both of which I previously got autographed by him.
