I live in Tappan, NY. My favorite player is Tal, although I also like Alekhine and early Karpov. Long ago, Tarrash was my favorite. My "current" rating is 1898, although if I were active I don't think I could maintain that. I've been a couple of hundred points higher, but that too was a long time ago.

   Nov-17-21 Nimzowitsch vs Stoltz, 1934 (replies)
Bishoprick: Black Queen trapped after 13 moves! Wish I could do that!
   Nov-02-21 Tiviakov vs Ponomariov, 2001 (replies)
Bishoprick: You start by knowing that this is a puzzle, and that the first move has to be a forcing move, preferably a check. The only available check is Nh3, which also happens to fork the white queen. Not difficult at all.
   Oct-21-21 P Krueger vs Gruenfeld, 1923
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White lost. Seems like a perfectly even position. Did someone's flag fall?
   Oct-06-21 L Engels vs K Richter, 1935 (replies)
Bishoprick: The pawn plus wins? Doesn't seem to ne ti be any immediate win.
   Oct-04-21 Lasker vs Janowski, 1910 (replies)
Bishoprick: Offramp points to an error in Reinfeld's "Why You Loose at Chess". He suggests Bc5 (a white square), and after b4, Black simply takes a Knight. Problem is that there is no knight in the Bishop's range. Knights are both on black squares. :-)
   Sep-30-21 Alekhine vs Lasker, 1934 (replies)
Bishoprick: E. Lasker was a very old man when he played this game. Would have been interesting had he played Alekhine in his prime.
   Aug-17-21 K G Shirazi vs S Milliet, 2021 (replies)
Bishoprick: What happens on Bxf7+?
   Jul-28-21 Bacrot vs P Ponkratov, 2021 (replies)
Bishoprick: Spigo, Qb8 + and Blck is busted.
   Jul-06-21 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
Bishoprick: Fisher was not unbeatable. He had a minus score against Tal, and this when Tal was no longer in his prime.
   Jun-18-21 Lars Erik Zwisler vs L F Pedersen, 2019 (replies)
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White resigned. Anyone can tell me?
