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.

Sally Simpson: Hi Ulhumbrus, Surgeons have nurses to wipe their glasses, so that is the solution. FiIDE allocates a nurse to each player to dress them, make sure they get to the board on time and wipe their glasses.

Sally Simpson: Hi Fred, Yes good fun. I also noticed that Mamedyarov vs Duda, 2022 got to the exact same position. [DIAGRAM] It's horses for courses but I'm not too fond of Duda's 7...dxe5. My 7....Nbd7 is (IMO) in tune with the theme of this opening. Gain time on White's exposed Queen. ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Paul 1969, Rodney Dangerfield was a comedian whose catch phrase was 'I get no respect.' (most N.N's get no respite or respect.) Rodney Dangerfield and a very loose connection to chess is here:

Sally Simpson: Hi Granny. Football! I support Leyton Orient and Hibernian. What do I know about football. (^_^)
   Jan-22-22 84th Tata Steel Masters (2022) (replies)
Sally Simpson: I think Nakamura has mellowed somewhat. Recently watched a vid of his analysing one of Carlsen's games. He repeatedly referred to him as the best player in the world.
   Jan-21-22 Ajeeb vs L O Hesse, 1892 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi jnpope, You are correct, it's nonsense. (but good nonsense.) I think we should run with this and start putting holes in all future pictures of Ajeeb.
   Jan-21-22 D Jenkins vs G Chandler, 1988
Sally Simpson: If I did not sac my Queen after 13.Bxa6 I'd never been able to looked myself in the eye again. Recall having a wee think before playing 21...Rc8-c4 [DIAGRAM] Inviting a pawn fork. 22 b3 Rxc3 23 Qxc3 Rxd4 and I win two active bits for a Rook.24.Qxd4 Nf3+ That was pretty easy ...
   Jan-21-22 Mamedyarov vs A Esipenko, 2022
Sally Simpson: It's an old idea in a new setting. (the delayed Grob - or Borg.) The position after 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4 has been played over 100 times here. [DIAGRAM] See Opening Explorer
   Jan-20-22 Sultan Khan vs G Abrahams, 1929 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi LTJ, The bogus move appears to have been corrected. 'Chess Mind' is a very interesting and unique chess book that time will not age. If you ever have a chance to pick it up then go for it.
   Jan-20-22 W Adams vs A Simonson, 1940
Sally Simpson: Hi FSR, Yes it is unexplainable. [DIAGRAM] It appears White was too preoccupied with the threat to his Queen and Black playing Qxa2+ to notice he had a wonder combination on the board. So why not play 21.Bc4. Here we recall Adams once wrote a book claiming 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 ...
