Once almost beat a guy who once almost beat Bobby Fischer Full Member

   Eggman has kibitzed 3926 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Aug-24-21 Uzi Geller
Eggman: -Uzi? -Oh, that's Geller. -The former candidate? -No, you're thinking of Efim.
   Aug-20-21 Reshevsky - Najdorf (1952)
Eggman: I either didn't know or had forgotten about this match. An almost Fischer-like beginning for Reshevsky - 6-1 after 7 games! What a shame Reshevsky couldn't play in the 1950 candidates tournament.
   Jul-23-21 Smyslov - Botvinnik World Championship Rematch (1958) (replies)
Eggman: Andrew Soltis mentions in his latest book ( ) that Smyslov came down with pneumonia during this match. I had never heard this!
   Jul-16-21 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
Eggman: Anyone know why Nakamura isn't playing in the world cup?
   Jul-15-21 Reshevsky vs Vaganian, 1976 (replies)
Eggman: Only in chess could you have a famous match-up between combatants born about 40 years apart. This would be like Rocky Marciano fighting Lennox Lewis.
   Jun-26-21 E Lemon vs B Hoareau, 2014
Eggman: Oh, the Hoareau!

Eggman: I'm having an issue with diagrams. I was trying to post on the page Yusupov vs K Bischoff, 1990 , and when I tried to insert a diagram for the position after 5...d6 it looked like this: [DIAGRAM] Yet when I tried to insert a diagram for the position after 10...Bg7 it looked like ...
   Jun-08-21 Nimzovich-Larsen Attack (A01)
Eggman: Does this opening ever not transpose into some kind of English?
   May-03-21 Nigel Short (replies)
Eggman: What do you refer to, <WPE>?
   Apr-26-21 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
Eggman: <keypusher> The tournament was ruined insomuch as the finish was unfair to Caruana. That it was exciting or produced a beautiful game is a separate point.

  Eggman: Another classic puzzle, one of the prettiest combinations of its kind ever played:

click for larger view

Farges - Rakhinshteyn, Toronto, 1984

White to play and draw. Solution to follow.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: <<cyruslaihy>>

Here is a puzzle with a theme similar to the one you posted on the kibitzer's cafe page a couple of days ago (the one that you said took you twenty minutes to solve):

click for larger view

Karsa-Meneth, 1986
White to play and win.

Jul-05-06  cyruslaihy: i got it!

1 Ne7+ Kf8 2 Nc8+ Kg8 3 Re8+ Nxe8 4 Ne7+ Kf8 Nxh7#

1...Kh8 2 Nxf7#

4...Kh8 5 Nxf7#

thanks for the puzzle!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Solution to Farges-Rakhinshteyn above:

1.♖xg6+!! ♔xg6 (1...fxg6 2.♕xf8+ ♔h7 3.♖f7+ ♖xf7+ 4.♕xf7+ ♔h8 5.♕f8+ =) 2.♕f6+ ♔h7 (2...♔h5?? 3.♖f5+ exf5 4.♕xf5#) 3.♖g3 ♖g8 4.♖g7+! ♖xg7 5.♕xh6+! ♔g8 6.♕h8+! ♔xh8 Stalemate!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: <<cyruslaihy>> Well done. You can see the similarity to the Nimzo puzzle you sighted - in both cases White uses a discovered check to block an enemy piece (in this case the Rook on a8), thus making the rest of the combo possible.

  whiteshark: Any relations to Eggman ??
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: <<Whiteshark>>

Wierd! I wouldn't mind taking credit for that guy's one game, but no, it's just a coincidink.

Nov-25-07  timhortons: from montreal..if youre from toronto then we had the same time schedule....almost 3 am aight? im playin in fics and gameknot till 6am almost daily
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Hello, timhortons! I had an intuition that you were Canadian. I'm afraid I've never actually played on-line.
Nov-30-07  timhortons: eggman lately i play blitz for i dont trust games done in correspondence chess....with lot of chess software around who knows what they well blitz i always had quarrel with people who adjourn the game when we reach a complicated fics i almost got banned for icc there is these 2100 plus player that in mid game when his downed on 10 seconds he postpone the game and come back 20 minutes after...i dont feel good about it though i restraint my self from confronting him for his rating alone would tell he could blow me to pieces on board but in blitz who knows what would happen between us...i feel bad of players who adjourn the blitz game... i feel theyre cheatin... i didnt finish the game with that man..i intentionally loss on time
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: <timhortons> What about (heaven forbid!) playing someone face to face? People did this for hundreds of years before the dreaded internet came along, and Montreal has a pretty good chess community, n'est pas?
Oct-07-08  timhortons: <eggman> how are you? you know last canadian open i meet some guys from toronto, they come to montreal to join the tournament and these guys are rated 1400 and 1700, they come here and stay in the hotel for one week just to join the tournament, I cant come to terms of it. I even hear some masters from toronto complaining about hotel accomodation and these and that but patzers dont mind spending money for there beloved sport.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Maybe the masters don't have so much money because of all the time they've invested to become chess masters?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Eggman> I've spruced up the Yasser Seirawan bio a bit. I was a little uneasy about his top world standing, as I could find no actual confirmation. Chessmetrics puts him at #14 at his peak, but that's not really official.

I like to confirm stuff I put into the bios, so if you have some definite information I would appreciate hearing it.

I'm also pretty sure that Seirawan made a People Magazine "Beautiful People" list, but couldn't find any details.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Thanks so much for getting back to me, PB! The top 13 on the FIDE July 1990 world rankings were as follows:

1. Kasparov, G 2800
2. Karpov, A 2730
3. Ivanchuk, V 2680
4. Gelfand, B 2680
5. Timman, J 2660
6. Ehlvest, J 2655
7. Salov, V 2655
8. Kamsky, G 2650
9. Gurevich, M 2640
10. Seirawan, Y 2635
11. Andersson, U 2630
12. Korchnoi, V 2630
13. Vaganian, R 2630

This information, as far as I know, is not available on the internet. Nevertheless, if you have a few minutes you can confirm it for yourself. I would direct you the following page maintained by Mark Weeks:

Here you can download a file called This is the July 1990 ratings, listed alphabetically. To confirm that Seirawan, rated 2635, was indeed 10th in the world, simply do a 'find' for ' 28' (space 28), to find all the players (namely Kasparov) rated 2800 or better, then do a 'find' for ' 27' to find all the players (namely Karpov) rated 2700-2799, and then search ' 26' to look at all the players rated 2600-2699 (there are 31 of these). You will see that only Kasparov, Karpov, and seven othters are rated higher than Seirawan's 2635. Hope this helps.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Eggman> Thanks for finding that information; makes a bio editor's job easier!

I think the Candidates touraments were missing because they weren't mentioned in Seirawan's Wikipedia entry. These sometimes get copied a bit too slavishly.

Amazing how he could be #10 in 1990 with 2635, then twenty years later barely be in the top 100 with a higher rating.

  technical draw: Eggman! The first member I "met" here. That was back in the aughts. Glad to see you around, (you are the original Eggman, right?)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Yes, <technical draw>, I am the original Eggman. Except perhaps for John Lennon. But then he was rated under 1800, so he doesn't count.
