Greetings from Los Angeles. My favorite players (strictly looking at their games) are Alekhine and Botvinnik.

   Nov-22-03 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
Diggitydawg: <Benzol> I was fascinated by drukenknight's summary of the Alekhine/Capablanca rematch controversy so tomorrow I'm going to go to Borders and look at the book and see if it says anything about the reasons for the postponement. If I find out anything, I'll let you know. ...
   Nov-22-03 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Diggitydawg: Fischer's relationship with Bill Lombardy in the '72 World Championship also illustrates a second's responsibilities. Fischer did all of the analysis but bounced some ideas off of Lombardy. He also made Lombardy swear not to talk to the media for fear of any leaking any ...
   Nov-21-03 Nikolai Krogius (replies)
Diggitydawg: I've heard that Krogius was the head of the chess department of the Sports committee in the old Soviet Union. I've also heard that he gave Tal a difficult time in terms of allowing Tal to participate in tournaments outside the Soviet Union. Because of these stories, I associate ...
   Nov-21-03 Carlsen vs H A Gretarsson, 2003 (replies)
Diggitydawg: Is the middle name of Black for real? If so, that must be the worst name in chess (and we've seen some humdingers). I feel so sorry for that person and the teasing he must have received growing up.
   Nov-15-03 G Minchev vs S Simeonov, 1994 (replies)
Diggitydawg: Since your goal is to become an IM, blitz is bad for you anyways. You've got to develop your thinking skills to reach that level. Maybe a good compromise between you and your American friends is to play rapid.
   Nov-14-03 X3D Fritz vs Kasparov, 2003 (replies)
Diggitydawg: : <Nova1990> Some very good points! I'd like to respectfully point out that you may have confused Kasparov's maximum rating with the number of games. He has 2,134 games in this database. <square dance> I think a better question is to ask whether Kasparov would have ...
   Nov-13-03 P S Leonhardt vs H Fahrni, 1911 (replies)
Diggitydawg: Benzol, every human being is responsible for his or her actions. Nothing posted by me or anyone else on this forum justified his personal attacks on the kibitzers here. That's his responsibility alone.
   Nov-12-03 Kasparov vs X3D Fritz, 2003 (replies)
Diggitydawg: They're holding the above event at the ESPN Sports Zone in Manhattan. I have fun memories of heading out there last year. My friend and I had lunch at a TGIF really closeby and met a couple of female Rockerfeller Center interns and invited them to have lunch with us. We headed ...
   Nov-12-03 Edgar Colle (replies)
Diggitydawg: <died on April 20, 1932> If that's true then the last game played in 1941 must be another Colle.
   Nov-11-03 X3D Fritz (Computer) (replies)
Diggitydawg: Lol, great picture. Maybe crafty could ask it out on a date ;-)
