Greetings, O Seeker After Knowledge! You have arrived in Dearborn, Michigan (whether you like it or not), and are reading words of wisdom from a player rated 2938--plus or minus 1000 points.

However, I've retired from serious play--not that I ever took playing chess all that seriously. You only have to look at my games to see that. These days I pursue the simple pleasures of finding games that are bizarre or just plain funny. I'd rather enjoy a game than analyze it.

For the record, my name is David Moody. This probably means nothing to you unless you're a longtime player from Michigan, though it's possible that if you attended any US Opens from 1975-1999 we might have crossed paths. Lucky you.

If you know me at all, you'll realize that most of my remarks are meant to be humorous. I do this deliberately, so that if my analysis stinks to High Heaven I can always say that I was just joking.

As you can undoubtedly tell from my sparkling wit, I'm a librarian in my spare time. Even worse, I'm a cataloger, which means I keep log books for cattle. Also, I'm not one of those extroverts who sit at the Reference Desk and help you with research. Instead, I spend all day staring at a computer screen updating and maintaining information in the library's catalog. The general public thinks Reference Librarians are dull. Reference Librarians think Catalogers are dull.

My greatest achievement in chess, other than tricking you into reading this, was probably mating with king, bishop and knight against king in a tournament game. I have to admit that this happened after an adjournment, and that I booked up like crazy before resuming. By the way, the fact I have had adjourned games shows you I've been around too long.

My funniest moment occurred when I finally got a chance to pull off a smothered mate in actual play. You know, 1.Nf7+ Kg8 2.Nh6+ Kh8 3.Qg8+ Rxg8 4.Nf7#. When I played the climactic queen check my opponent looked at the board in shocked disbelief and said, "But that's not mate! I can take the queen!"

Finally, I must confess that I once played a positional move, back around 1982. I'll try not to let that happen again.

  Phony Benoni: <FSR>: Joel Benjamin vs Gufeld, 1998, (which Gufeld won) is not from the US Open, but from the US Masters Tournament played in Hawaii just before the Open. Their US Open game, which Benjamin won, is Joel Benjamin vs Gufeld, 1998. These results can be confirmed at the MSA site:

US Open (#8 vs. #9, round 8)

US Masters: (#3 vx. #14, round 2)

The game Gregg Fritchle - Julian Hodgson is from the US Open (Round 2, player #97 vs. player #12), and must have pleased Fritchle no end!

Premium Chessgames Member
  TRoosevelt1858: Phony Benoni, I am glad you liked the video. As I mentioned we are doing one on 1950s Marshall and we do take requests of subjects though I don't guarantee we can fill. You also mentioned that you were doing some game collections. I have been working on some of my own. We might be able to help each other out. Two of the groups I am particularly interested in are the Spence books and then also Chess Life pre-1960. Which ones are you doing? What are you looking to do in the future? I also might have a young person who needs to fill his hours shall we say and putting together some groups of games might be a good thing for him to work on.

  MissScarlett: Reshevsky vs F A Hollway, 1921

Can you remember how you were able to date this simul to March 18th? It's from your 1921 <ACB> collection.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <MissScarlett> I'm sure there must have been some source, but I am unable to find it now. In fact, I now see that Reshevsky had at least two appearances in Grand Rapids in 1921 (ACB, 1921, p. 117, mentioned in an article on his appearances in Milwaukee). .

The March 18 date makes some sense, since Reshevsky was heading back East after a week in Milwaukke and Chicago, and Grand Rapids would have been on the way. But until we run into the actual soure again, the date should probably come off.

Mar-25-21  bruceleverett: In the crosstable for the 1970 U.S. Open, "Dinah M. Norman" should be "Dinah M. Dobson". She married D. Wright in 1971 and K. Norman in 1983. More about her here:
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <bruceleverett> The crosstables I compile generally follow the form of name given in <Chessgames>, simply for the sake of consistency. I don't want to refer users to a form of name they would not be able to find in the database.

<CG>'s usual policy is to list all games for a player under one form of name. For married women, this is generally the latest name, such as Dinah M Norman or Jana Bellin. (Of course, there is also Vera Menchik instead of her married name, <Vera Stevenson>. Sometimes common sense wins out over logical consistency.

Different databases will make different decisions about thesequestions. This is just how <CG> does it.

I think this is your forum!?
Gheorghiu's missing games from my collection are those with Small, Sokolowsky (or Sokolowski!?), and Fedorowicz. Round 7 is quite an issue. Gheorghiu quoted his own game with Bouzoukis in Atlanta in Chess Life, December 1980! But I discovered a game Gheorghiu-Renard Anderson, USA 1980. R. Anderson also took part in Atlanta. Maybe Gheorghiu wrongly quoted!? On the other hand Gheorghiu played another 5 tournaments in USA in 1980!

In y opion, the game with Bouzoukis is the game from round 7. FIrst the colors are definitely right: Gheorghiu had Black in rounds 56, so he would absolutely had White in round 7..

Secondly, the game is described as being from the "U. S. Open". This normally specifies the United States Open Chess Championship. "USA" or "USA op" are generally more generic terms, and could be any open tournament played n the USA. So I would guess that the Anderson game is from another of the tournaments Gheorghius played in the US during 1980.

You have done a lot of work on this question! Would you happen to have Gheorghiu's game from the 1979 US Open in Chicago, Illinois? I only have eight of the twelve games played.

Premium Chessgames Member
  floryncd1970: Thanks and thanks!
It is 4:30 a.m. in Bucharest, and as I cannot sleep, I have opened the computer and found these 3 games! From my view point these are gems! Specifically, I also have a photo of the Fedorowicz game, If you want it, let me know. On the other hand, I have 9 games from Chicago, so in this regard more than you! They are from rounds 1-8 & 10. I think we should compare our games and complete each other's collection. Generally, I have many games directly from Gheorghiu's handwritten scores, which are not included in public databases. If you are interested, I could give them to you.

Apart from this, I culled an incomplete score of a game Kevitz - Gheorghiu, Philadelphia, 1979 - from British Chess Magazine:
Kevitz,Alexander - Gheorghiu,Florin [A40]
Philadelphia I 1979

  Phony Benoni: <floryncd1970>

The U. S. Open is a specialty of mine, and I would not be able to help with games from other tournaments such as Kevitz - Gheorghiu (which I assue is from the World Open).

As for Gheorghiu's games from Chicago 1979, I am missing round 2 (White vs unknown opponent) and round 8 (win vs. Alburt?).

I can supply you with round 12:

[Event "US Open (80th)"]

In case you did not know, "tournament bulletins" were based on the handwritten scores of the players. These were not always submitted, which explains the unfortunate gaps.

Premium Chessgames Member
  floryncd1970: Soltis game is also a valuable addition to my collection! In return, the two games from Chicago!
Gheorghiu,Florin (2540) - Williamson [A21]

Alburt game was essential on the road to winning the tournament. Curiously you did not have it! In rounds 9 and 11 Gheorghiu drew with Bisguier and Bass! This piece of information is culled from a magazine of the Romanian Chess Federation. Maybe you will find them someday!

On the other hand, from Ventura US ooen 1971, a bonus for you:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <floryncd1970> Thank you for the games and information from Chicago 1979. Based on other information I had deduced that Gheorghiu drew Bisguier in Round 9 and Bass in Round 11, but I was not sure.

As to why the Gheorghiu - Alburt game did not appear in the tournament bulletins, I can only guess. Possibly they simply could not decipher the players' handwritten scoresheets. I don't believe I've ever seen a Gheorghiu score, but I do know that Alburt's were almost unreadable and written in Russian.

As for the game with Bisguier and Bass, they were probably omitted from the bulletin because they were uninteresting draws. The staff that worked on these bulletins had limited space available, but still (in my opinion) often exercise poor justment in game selection.

As for Ventura 1971, I should have checked nore carefully yesterday. I actually have all twelve of Gheorghius's games, so if you are missing any I can supply them.

Apr-15-21  LivBlockade: Hi Phony. Just FYI, it looks like you put today's GOTD (April 15th e-file) into your 2020 list rather than the 2021 list. BTW, thanks for making those lists. Does any such thing exist for the daily puzzles? Thanks!

  Phony Benoni: <LivBlockade> Thank you for catching that. It's fixed. Game Collection: Game of the Day 2021

  floryncd1970: Dear Phony Benoni,

I immensely appreciate you gave me some games from Atlanta. Anyway, there is one more issue.

The scoresheet of Gheorghiu-Sadowski game (round 2) is quite unclear (especially between moves 25 and 40). So, I cannot duly reconstruct the whole game in its entirety. Could you, please, help me in this respect??


Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Jean Defuse> Than you for the link, but I have not been able to figure out how to download the document. The site keeps trying to force me to download extra software, something which I cannot do. (It's a long story, but basically I am not -- as we say in the U.S. -- "tech-savvy.")

  MissScarlett: Regarding Game Collection: US Open 1973, Chicago, it seems clear that Walter Brown is separate from <Walter Browne>, but is anything more known about him? Is his name definitely <Walter>? There are a couple of other <W Brown>s floating in the aether.

G C DeFotis vs W Brown, 1973

Which brings me to the DeFotis brothers. Greg was certainly there, but what about Gary?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: I can assure you that Walter Brown is a different person from the GM. He is an Expert/Master from Chicago, sometimes referred to as "Chicago Walter Brown". He is best known as a tournament director. In fact, I have played in tournaments he directed.

Apparently, both DeFotis brothers played at Chicago 1973 because each had a game in the bulletin for round 5. Generally these bulletins use just first initials ("G DeFotis"), but for this one game Gary's name is spelled.

For now, I'm assuming the rest of the "G DeFotis" games from Chicago 1973 are Gregory's, but without a crosstable it's impossible to be sure. Such uncertainty is one reason I haven't been submitting games from the US Opens in the 1970s.
