   Oct-20-21 Fischer vs Greer, 1964 (replies)
YoungEd: Black was praying "Please play 24. Nh4!" When that didn't happen, well...
   Aug-11-21 Daniel Naroditsky
YoungEd: GM Naroditsky has become quite prolific with his YouTube chess instruction videos. I think they're quite good; give them a try.
   Aug-04-21 Myagmarsuren vs Bisguier, 1971 (replies)
YoungEd: Do NOT score one for the YoungEd express today (more like a local, truth to tell).
   Jul-12-21 Kholmov vs Jan Turner, 2001 (replies)
YoungEd: Score a rare victory for the YoungEd express! Got it in an instant! :)
   Jul-03-21 R Underhill vs C Weldon, 1960
YoungEd: 7...Qd4! traps the knight on a relatively open board. I'd probably try 8. Nf3 exf3 9. Qxf3 and wait until move 13 or so to resign!
   Jun-26-21 G Welling vs P Kok, 1975
YoungEd: Many thanks to IM Welling for his interesting post above. It really enhances the experience of the website to have strong players commenting like this. Appreciated!
   Jun-25-21 M Kuerschner vs Tarrasch, 1888
YoungEd: Agreed with <estrick>! Great king march! I never would have found that plan!
   Jun-08-21 E Hansen vs Maximiliano Perez, 2012
YoungEd: Score a rare victory for the YoungEd Express!
   May-25-21 M Yilmaz vs B Erbis, 2011 (replies)
YoungEd: Is it possible simultaneously to feel proud of myself for getting the puzzle and disappointment in the puzzle for letting me solve it? I think so...
   Apr-24-21 Colonel Moreau (replies)
YoungEd: I clicked "Moreau Wins" under the Refined Search, and read "no games available at this time." Nor later, I should imagine. Poor Colonel!

  wordfunph: <YoungEd> hello!
Premium Chessgames Member
  YoungEd: Thanks for the welcome, folks! All glory and honor to <Memethecat>, I suppose! Anyway, I'm happy to have just gotten premium membership as a birthday gift after several years of "regular" use of the site, and am looking forward to the benefits. I think that chess shares a parallel with music in the sense that throughout our whole lives, we like best that which we encountered during our formative years. For me, that means I especially enjoy the games of Morphy, Bird, and Tartakower. And for no apparent reason, I have an inordinate interest (though not ability) in offbeat/uncommon openings from the White side, particularly Bird's Opening, the Ponziani, and Alapin's Opening. Does anyone play any of those with regularity?
Mar-20-12  Memethecat: <YoungEd> I will humbly accept <All glory and honor> I can get my grubby little hands on. Not one for the openings, got my head around the bare bones of 6 or 7 of the most popular e4 stuff & QGD. your mention of <formative years> reminded me of the primary school teacher that showed me the moves when I was 10. I beat him in the 1 & only game we played, he might of let me win but the look on his face, confusion & surprise really stuck with me, who knows, maybe he was a good actor. That was that, only a handful of games & not much interest for the next 30yrs, until 2yrs ago & stuck on an island with nothing to do I got into playing & now its an addiction. I cant count how many times I've wished that 10yr old boy would of found others to play against & learn at an age when learning sticks.
Mar-22-12  TheTamale: YoungEd, do you own any software like Rybka, as some of the people use around here do? Does such a thing interest you? Or do you think it would just go over your head, the way it would mine?
Premium Chessgames Member
  YoungEd: Howdy, <TheTamale>! No, I don't own any software like that. I'm occasionally interested, but fear that it would take up lots of time without enhancing my pleasure all that much.
Premium Chessgames Member
  YoungEd: Hi, Everyone--
I've always been interested in Bird's Opening, so I made a game collection of how people fared with Bird's against the world champions. Enjoy!
Jun-16-12  TheTamale: Hi, <YoungEd>, and thanks for the game collection. I will check it out.

Will you please see my recent comment on the Tal game and see if you can answer my question on it?

p.s. I have spent a little more time investigating Chessmaster 9000 for the Mac. A very bare-bones operation! I am provided one opponent... Chessmaster! Whatever happened to Barney and Chelsea, the 1400-rated patzers I could crush?

p.p.s. Please don't forget to answer my question on the Tal game. It is the only way I will learn.

  YoungEd: Hi, <TheTamale>: Actually, <Phony Benoni>, a far better player than I, answered your question already--it's the comment above yours on that game, for some reason. Bummer about the CM 9000. I wonder why it's so limited?
Jun-16-12  TheTamale: D'oh! Sorry, didn't notice that.

I don't know. Also, the Josh Waitzkin annotated games are the same as on earlier versions. I know it's a very strong chess engine... I wonder if it's intended to be used primarily for analysis...?

Premium Chessgames Member
  YoungEd: Hi, Everyone--I made a game collection above on how Bird's Opening fares against world champions. Give it a look! :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Interesting collection of Birds. Lasker lost a couple? Very surprising.

Mar-08-13  TheTamale: Happy birthday to <YoungEd>! Believe me, folks, I know this cat, and he indeed looks <young> for his age.
