Following the game and collecting chess books are my favorite hobby activities, as opposed to actual study and improvement. Other time sinks are an unfortunate addiction to the Houston Cougars... and politics... and reading other members' bios.

Living near Bandera -- the "Cowboy Capital of the World" -- in the Texas Hill Country. I can be reached at; just prepend that domain with mask@. Surname: Eoff.

Places I've been active: Abilene (TX), Houston, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Beaumont (TX), Orlando, Austin, San Antonio.

Soapbox section:

I'm a Christian, but IMO Christianity is somewhat misunderstood, including by many Christians. I believe the Bible and Christ's return was fulfilled -- as prophesied -- with the fall of Jerusalem in ~74 A.D and I don't think rituals like attending "church" have anything to do with the future life.

I also think of myself as philosophically Buddhist and politically libertarian.

DrNyet: Earlier in this Henley "page", there were two or three mentions of the Church's Fried Chicken international tournament in San Antonio in late 1972. Yes, Fischer visited as a spectator and I believe I recall that he commiserated with the players after a round (or *the* round?) he ...

One choice is to highlight and copy the game moves under the game and then paste them into your engine.

A second choice is to click on <review game> (upper right corner) and then on <view> (below the board where it says <PGN: download | view>). That takes you to the pgn with headers. You can then copy and paste that to your engine.

The first way is quicker and easier.

  OhioChessFan: I think Jesus returned in 70 AD and fulfilled many prophecies people incorrectly think are yet to be fulfilled. I've been told I'm a semi-preterist. I haven't really examined any outside literature to know what that means.
Premium Chessgames Member
  DrNyet: I haven't been able to post for a while, as reported in the Chessgames account forum.

<OhioChessFan> Sorry, I haven't checked my own silly forum regularly... something that influenced me was:

Behold, I Am Coming Quickly: Discovering The Time And Nature Of The Return Of Christ, by Ron McRay


Preterist Time Statements, by Douglas Wilkinson (but it seems to be out of print or at least not currently available at Amazon)

And... Jesus's statement that he would return before some of his listeners had passed away.

Taking into account the actual technical abilities shown by 'official cg members' (chiefly the owner of chessforum) I would never ever write any personal information to whatever CG contacts (still) listed on this site anywhere at this moment.


Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I'll have a look at McRay's book when I get an opportunity.
Premium Chessgames Member
  DrNyet: <OhioChessFan> "I think Jesus returned in 70 AD and fulfilled many prophecies people incorrectly think are yet to be fulfilled."

Did you come to that conclusion on your own or were prompted by another source? Just curious.

I find it striking that Revelation says ten times that it was about things that were to happen soon or similar wording. The New Testament is full of "preterist statements," as documented by a book whose title includes that term.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Totally on my own. I usually start discussions of Revelation with people by saying, "The very first verse tells when it's talking about". The shocked/bewildered looks I usually get are priceless. I never found the McRay book. I can't say that bothers me much, as I stubbornly avoid reading other people's work on Scriptural matters.
Premium Chessgames Member
  DrNyet: Very clear thinking IMO <OCF>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  DrNyet: A note I came across that I saved from my father:

Dad on translations 8/20/2017:
"I personally highly recommend Greek-English interlinear versions. There are a number of them and they stem for different versions (manuscripts) of the Greek text also. At least you can compare the words as recorded in the Greek with the translator’s opinion of the word (not phrase, or idiom) that best translates the word. It is amazing to see the manner in which some words are translated. There is an online parallel text available at “” . I have mentioned this previously. My favorite is one by George Ricker Berry. I have another “The NKJV Greek English Interlinear New Testament”. Some of the translations will floor you when you see from what they were translated. All translation is a process of interpretation---the interpretation of the translator (s)."
