Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-24-13  Karpova: Edward Winter: <The BCM is a periodical whose falsehood and subterfuge we have often censured. The April 1999 issue carried a review by somebody named Tim Wall which had a nasty sting in its tail. Hopeful of engineering some kind of chess Watergate against us, Wall wrote: ‘However, for all his excellent research, stylish put-downs and corrections, occasionally Winter himself commits the sin of omission.’ The ‘occasionally’ amounted to one case: a lengthy exposé of how, applying double standards, we had ignored Kenneth Neat’s 1997 criticisms of the quality of Russian translations by Hanon Russell and had even ‘defended Hanon Russell, who is – coincidentally – the publisher of Winter’s work …’

A ‘sin of omission’ can easily be imputed to any writer of any book, but in next to no time the charge was being chewed over on the Internet, under the naive, unflattering assumption that, if the BCM had printed it, it must be true. In reality, it was false, through and through. It was loosely based on a scrap of gossip given to Wall by Neat which was itself based on the latter’s faulty recollection of his private correspondence with us which, in any event, was from the 1980s. We wrote, as did Neat, to correct the BCM’s record (though what appeared under Neat’s name was still wrong). In short, a venomous soufflé had been whipped up out of nothing, and once it collapsed the BCM was in no mood to apologize. Far from withdrawing the untruth altogether, it went to great lengths on its website to touch up the review in an unavailing bid to salvage something – anything – from the original smear.>


Mar-06-14  Conrad93: Is he related to Bill Wall?
Mar-06-14  Paint My Dragon: No relation to Bill. Tim is from the north-east of England but now lives abroad. Check out this brilliant game against Dean Ippolito, played at Hampstead in 1998 ...

T Wall vs D Ippolito, 1998

A hark back to the days of swashbuckling chess, when double rook sacrifices were obligatory!

  wwall: Tim Wall, Brian Wall, and Bill Wall are not related to each other unless there was a common chess-playing ancestor (Chester Wall?) 1,000 years ago. I think my family ancestors were from Scotland.

  HeMateMe: If there are no Walls, what's holding the place up?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: What about <Gavin Wall>? He's an IM, and I've lost a couple of games to him.

  perfidious: 'Venomous souffle', indeed.

Hmm--thought never occurred to me.

While never having heard of Gavin Wall so far as I can recall, I have not met Bill or Tim Wall, but have played Brian Wall.
