Sally Simpson
Member since Jan-28-14
I'm Geoff Chandler

'Sally Simpson' is the title of my favourite Who song.

I learned how to play chess when I was 6 or 7 by watching my father. He was playing dominoes at the time and I kept telling him what to play.

Eventually he locked me in a cupboard under stairs where I found an old chess set, a torch and a Fred Reinfeld book on Opening Traps.

I was in that cupboard for 18 years, when I came out I was a chess genius.

Favourite player Tarrasch.

If you fancy something different. I do this.

   Oct-18-21 Blackburne vs W Crane, 1885
Sally Simpson: Stop not-picking each other you two. By the way: "...from New South Wales named by Captain Cook?" He was actually 'Lieutenant Cook' when he named it New South Wales in his journal. He sailed the world attaching his name to pieces of land, rivers, mountains, lakes, ...
   Oct-07-21 Blackburne vs J Schwarz, 1881 (replies)
Sally Simpson: One of Blackburne's many classics. Often repeated in tactical combo books. Queen sac, Rook sac and Mate.

Sally Simpson: It's also been posted on youtube
   Sep-28-21 Nona Gaprindashvili (replies)
Sally Simpson: Viz (a comic adult only UK publication) have done a 5 page piece on chess. A page is dedicated to the Nona lawsuit though the names have been changed to protect the innocent and keep the lawyers at bay. In this case it is a male ex-laundry worker claiming his life and Beth ...
   Sep-28-21 Capablanca vs G Wheatcroft, 1939
Sally Simpson: Hi Gaito, It appears you has misread my post, though I admit it is not too clear what I am saying. We agree 18 Rd8 was a blunder. You come in from the angle Black wanted to simplify, which makes perfect sense and is very possibly correct. I'm saying Black 'suddenly' saw a ...
   Sep-23-21 Carlsen vs Rapport, 2021
Sally Simpson: Fanques Fair: 'What´s wrong with 5 - Nxe5 ?' It's the old Mortimer Trap. It has it's own wiki page. [DIAGRAM] This one has White and Black victims due to the lurking counter trap. 5. Nxe5 c6 6. Nc4 cxb5 7. Nd6 Checkmate. --- I too ...
   Sep-05-21 Tal vs Salnikov, 1970 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Yes Beautiful with many attacking (and defending) ideas to be studied and stored. Flawed. Yes but every win has a losing flaw somewhere. you cannot win without one. The only difference is the gravity and timing of the blunder. (last to blunder losses.) Chess players forgive ...
   Aug-10-21 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi Dionysius, You could get a copy of 'Fischer-Spassky Move by Move' on the 1972 match by Evans and Smith which has a diagram after every move. Or carve out a chess set from buffalo bones (don't use elephant ivory - that is illegal). You are not allowed to chop trees down ...
   Jul-24-21 Netanya (1968)
Sally Simpson: Some footage of this event. Looks like the game Kraidman vs Fischer, 1968
