Jul-07-06  BIDMONFA: Robert Murray Jamieson


Jul-07-09  ozmikey: Another Australian as player of the day! Good stuff.

As well as being an IM and Australia's top player in the seventies (along with Max Fuller) Jamieson is also (or was, at least) a top-class tennis player. A friend and I played doubles against him and one of his clubmates once - Jamieson's volleys were incredible, pinpoint accurate.

Jul-07-09  WhiteRook48: Happy birthday!
Nov-25-11  wordfunph: Robert Jamieson of Australia has a large private collection with over 3,000 chess books.

Jul-07-12  LoveThatJoker: Happy Birthday!


Jul-27-12  wordfunph: "Chess is the eternal struggle against one's own stupidity."

- IM Robert Jamieson

Jan-23-13  SvetlanaBabe: (Yeah, yeah good tennis player...ok)
All of IM Jamieson's best wins are here and good wins they are! but where is Jamieson's loss against Levi in the 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 variation of the Sicilian? Come to think of it, where is his 10 move total capitulation to John Hanks? Where is Prods' crush of 'Jammo'.
These losses by IM Jamieson were at the height of his 'powers' too!
Jul-07-22  belgradegambit: Easy to guess why this is my favorite game of his:

Bellon Lopez vs R Jamieson, 1977
