  WannaBe: How do you get 2225??
Jun-20-05  Runemaster: The 7 players he drew with must have had ratings of ELO 8000-9000.
Jun-20-05  VerySensitivePerson: What's the big deal, he lost games to respected GM's like Korchnoi, Sosonko, Shabalov, Speelman, Gligoric, Timman... I don't think 2200 player has much chance aginst that kind of opposition.

  perfidious: In my best days, I was about the same strength as this player and never did much against 2550-2600 GMs in long games-only time I managed to beat anyone that strong was in blitz.

  Phony Benoni: I can't find much on Joseph Feller, but he seems to have been born in the mid-1940s and was one of Luxembourg's best players from the 1960s-1980s. Which, perhaps, is still not saying much, but he was obviously Top Gun down at the local club and most of us have painful memories of that guy.

He played in 9 Olympiads for Luxembourg, which is where most of his games came from. Though his record is not distinguished, he was 1st board four times and 2nd board twice. This meant he could expect at least one good GM drubbing each time, especially before the Swiss System began to be used in 1972.

1966 Bd.3 +3 =4 -8 33.3%
1968 Bd.1 +2 =5 -7 32.1%
1970 Bd.1 +0 =3 -10 11.5%
1974 Bd.1 +4 =7 -4 50.0%
1976 Bd.2 +3 =3 -3 50.0%
1980 Bd.2 +2 =4 -4 40.0%
1982 Bd.1 +2 =3 -6 31.8%
1988 Bd.1r +3 =5 -1 61.!%
1990 Bd.1r +2 =2 -5 33.3%

Total +21 =36 -48 37.1%

He managed to quality for at least two Zonals, which is something positive.

Probably his most memorable win in Olimpbase was over future IM Craig William Pritchett:

Pritchett, Craig William - Feller, Joseph
Olympiad (Qualifying Group 5) Havana (3), 28.10.1966

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 e5 4.Bc4 d6 5.d3 Be7 6.Be3 Be6 7.Nd5 Nf6 8.0-0 Bxd5 9.exd5 Nd4 10.c3 Nxf3+ 11.Qxf3 0-0 12.Qh3 Qd7 13.Qxd7 Nxd7 14.Rad1 a6 15.a4 Rab8 16.Ra1 f5 17.f3 Kh8 18.a5 Bf6 19.Rfc1 Rbe8 20.Rab1 e4 21.dxe4 Ne5 22.Be2 Ng6 23.Bc4 Ne5 24.Be2 Ng6 25.Bd3 Ne5 26.Bc2 Nc4 27.Bf4 fxe4 28.Ba4 Be5 29.Bxe5 Rxe5 30.fxe4 Rxe4 31.Rf1 Rf6 32.Rbe1 Nd2 33.Bc2 Re5 34.g3 Rxe1 35.Rxe1 Nf3+ 36.Kf2 Nxe1+ 37.Kxe1 g6 38.Ke2 Kg7 39.Ke1 Rf8 40.Ke2 Kf6 41.Ke3 Ke5 42.Bd3 Rb8 43.Bc4 b6 1-0

Pritchett probably should have taken the draw while he had a chance.

I guess I should submit this game, but it seems a shame to spoil Fuller's perfect record.
