  perfidious: Did this player make a Faustian bargain?
Jul-23-14  jerseybob: perfidious: Since like yours truly he lived in New Jersey, I'd say the answer to that is yes.
Sep-03-15  wrap99: There is a Faust in the comprehensive (when it was written) book of Fischer's games -- 700+ games -- and I wonder if this is the same player. He was in his 70s I would guess when I played him in 1978.

  perfidious: <jerseybob> I have visited your state many times and really, it is not so bad. Plenty of fond memories.

I've been to Jersey a few times. Bikes, bibles, bishops, bum-bandits, bovines, bombs, bullets, bastards, Brits, bikes (again), boys, babes, balaclavas, Bretons, bouffants, Bretons with bouffants, berets, beanies and bats.

Plenty of fond memories.

  HeMateMe: I'm willing to seal a Faustian bargain, just can't get anyone to put up the goods that I'll sell my soul for.

I'd want:

1. life time floor seats for the Knicks. (don't laugh, they'll be back).

2. access to the next 30 years of SI swimsuit models.

3. A secret device that blocks all pop up ads and phone spam from ever touching me again.

Sep-07-15  zanzibar: <offramp> how can you omit

<beaches, blondes, brunettes, broadwalks, and bruces>

Not to mention <blintzes>:

All as Jersey as can be. As are: (You looking at me?)

Sep-09-15  wrap99: <zanzibar> Somewhat of a coincidence: I was looking for a way to contact you regarding the 1976 American Open in Santa Monica that you asked about and I see that you are one of the few people in this Faust kibbitzing. Anyway, John Pike I chatted with all those years ago (maybe in 1977) and later saw him on tv for his research -- he was apparently quite a scientist.
Sep-10-15  zanzibar: Hi <wrap99>. Commandeering this forum for a moment...

I think you're talking about John Pike, and this post of mine:

You can always just leave a comment on the blog for a start. I've been fairly good about replying there.

Tim Pike, John's son, actually contacted me that way.

(Or use the <CG> Bistro - I'm still there a lot even if not so vocal).

And yes, I've seen some of J. Pike's technical papers, though I didn't know he was on TV!
