I live in South Florida USA. Rated USCF ~1800

A long time ago I was a new player in a Miami chess park, and one of the stronger players thought I had real talent, so he suggested that I play the park champ, a Cuban master. After the master destroyed me in a few blitz games, the question was posed, "Is he any good?" The answer I took as a great compliment: "Ehh... he tries to be sneaky."

The greatest chess player of all time is Robert James Fischer. The greatest chess problemist of all time is Sam Loyd. The greatest chess site of all time is!

Other players who I admire:

<Morphy> Possibly the greatest natural chess talent ever. Like Steinitz who followed, he taught the world how the game should really be played. <Najdorf> He was smart enough to make his money outside of chess, so he played for the pure joy of it. <Tal> Proved that even in the modern era, chess is an art more than a science. <Blackburne> Sacrificed his queen more times than I've had hot meals. <Diemer> One of the most original thinkers the game ever has known. His ideas were not always right, but they were HIS ideas. <Topalov> He hates draws so much he'll gladly risk losing to avoid one. I can forgive him for the Elista debacle; his chess is payment enough. <Lembit Oll> When on the attack, Lembit Oll said "Dambit All!" <Kasparov> Strive for perfection, one move at a time. <Alekhine> Swashbuckling play culminating in booming sacrifices.

And countless others: Nezhmetdinov, Shirov, Nunn, Shabalov, Nakamura, basically, anybody with cojones.

Addendum 2015: <Magnus Carlsen> has to be on the list. He's a modern day Casablanca. The way he squeezes wins out of the tiniest advantages and grinds his opponents down through sheer stamina is right up there with Robert James.

You can find me on FICS ( ... and lately, on ICC as well. I'll gladly play anybody within 1000 points of my rating. I also really like the site but so far have only played anonymously.

Sneaky: I like the new Giri photo. Sharp dressed young grandmaster.

Sneaky: For those who care what engines think... 52.b4! retains the initiative according to Stockfish. If true, that’s a hard move to see. And I’m not sure if it isn’t just having horizon blindness. It’s in love with the idea of getting Qa2+ in.

Sneaky: <if I said "I live 90 minutes from Miami" I am not being ambiguous.> That's entirely ambiguous! 90 minutes by airplane? By automobile? By foot?

Sneaky: The first music I ever owned in my life were two eight track tapes my mother gave me. One was the Eagle’s Greatest Hits; the other was Pink Floyd’s Animals.

Sneaky: <Marmot PFL: <c5/d5 are “hanging pawns” right?> Not really, black doesn't have an open c-file.> You are colorectal. (I’m sorry, I meant “correct.” Stupid auto-colorectal.)

Sneaky: <vabe vs vibe> ssssshhhh... don't spoil morf's fun. He lives for this stuff. So what's White's error here? I've never seen the Scandi get so much counterplay so quick. Is 4.f3 the culprit?

  thegoodanarchist: As far as I know, you are the active user who has been around the longest.

Member since Jan-19-02 (a year and a half more than me!)

Who else?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: In the early days I remember Honza Cervenka, refutor, Knight13, GWGriffiths, pawntificator.

Lots of people I can't recall, of course. If you cruise the first few hundred pages of the café you can see them. (Way back then, people actually discussed chess there!)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: Hey Sneaky good to see Irma gave you favor in her wrath!?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: Hi Joshka! I only lost power for a day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  ketchuplover: Wishing ye an overtly suchessful 2018 :)

  ketchuplover: Hope you're not too hot or cold young man :)

I know <pawntificator> IRL, from the upstate NY chess scene. We're friends, although I haven't seen him FTF in a long time because he hasn't lived in NY for many years.

He is a very good human being. Can't ask for a better person than him.

Jul-30-18  posoo: Da old posoo is CRUSHED if da sounds are true.

  Penguincw: Hi <Sneaky>. Hope all is well with you. Sorry to hear of the loss of your long time friend, Daniel Freeman.

Though I'm hearing that <you> may be Daniel Freeman himself. That's, unexpected.

Jul-30-18  posoo: i bet u dat da "cuban mastor" in da storey above is actuly ALBERTO ARTODILLO, making dis all da more puignant.

Then it would all make sense.

Tragic loss for and everyone in our community

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Adios my friend. I will miss you. Did not know. When I awarded the first Life Time Award to you in 2009 who you really were/are.

Now I know. You, little Sneaky, you. =))

Ah, we had fun back then! (^_^) Suddenly I'm being very nostalgic.

Aug-27-18  morfishine: Wait hold it, <Sneaky> continues to play the bookie game

Who's who? and whats what?

Aug-28-18  TheFocus: <morfishine: Wait hold it, <Sneaky> continues to play the bookie game Who's who? and whats what?>

Not necessarily playing, unless it can be seen by the Bookie or Admins that bets are being made. It might be that he had outstanding loans and his amount decreases daily.

So is his total being affected by making bets or by paying interest?

I'm Harrylime64 on there.

What about Nirio Basallo a Miami resident who participated in the final of the Cuban Championship in 1954?
