I live in Canada. I can beat most of my friends at chess, but I'm far from being a grandmaster. Um, favourite player? Hard to say, but I think Garry Kasparov is cool because the Russian government hates him.

JimmyVermeer: Congrats on your quick win, Frederick! I have made a series of videos on YouTube featuring 109 of the fastest checkmates in chess history and your name has come up a few times in it. Check it out on my YouTube channel!
   Apr-05-22 F La Rota vs J Sarwer, 1988
JimmyVermeer: The video ended up becoming a series of videos because there are 109 games featured in it. It's on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out.
   Mar-08-22 McBride vs Hill, 1892
JimmyVermeer: I read that the opening was called the Blackburne Shilling Gambit because Blackburne would play amateurs for a shilling and win with the tricky move 3 ... Nd4 (Thus the extra C in Schilling is probably a typo). But it shouldn't be played against masters because it is easily ...
   Feb-13-22 NN vs Svidler, 2020
JimmyVermeer: Peter's opponent was YmustIlosetothisBogues (likely a reference to Magnus Carlsen who also uses the name MagzyBogues). His profile picture is Paul Morphy but he certainly doesn't play like Paul Morphy. When he played 4 e4 (a losing blunder) he played so quickly it was almost as
   Feb-12-22 Joan Gemota vs Fatou Jabbie, 2018
JimmyVermeer: This is almost worse than Scholar's Mate. White threatened mate and Black simply ignored the threat.
   Feb-12-22 O Krause vs P S Leonhardt, 1907 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: I noticed it as well, and was actually about to enter exf4 as a move into my own opening explorer when I did a double take and realized there was nothing at f4 for Black to capture.
   Feb-11-22 Giri vs Dubov, 2022
JimmyVermeer: I wear a mask at work and it doesn't affect my performance at all. If Dubov thought wearing a mask would be a handicap for him, he should have requested that Giri also wear a mask to "level the playing field".
   Feb-10-22 S D Sigfusson vs D Dvirnyy, 2016 (replies)
JimmyVermeer: But the ECO code should actually be B02. It's the John Tracy Gambit.
   Feb-10-22 P H Nielsen vs L Sawlin, 2015
JimmyVermeer: Some people resign way too easily. At least try to put up a fight. After all, if White played 1 g4, he's sure to make another blunder sooner or later.

JimmyVermeer: There is a more complete list on my website -
