I was born in 1959, learned chess during the Fischer Boom (1972-1973). I played in the Fitchburg/Leominster, Mass. area at first and later in New Hampshire. With the help of Stephan Gerzadowicz (Correspondence Chess Master and a TD and organizer in the 70's and 80's in Massachusetts) eventually got to a Master rating 2300 USCF, give or take a few points. NH State Champ in 1975, 1981 and 1991.

bwarnock: "I had a lot of trouble with him" Yes - we had (have) similar styles and that time I was a little bit ahead (not much though - as I remember it most of our games were draws) - this has been discussed elsewhere: W Reichenbach vs H Pfleger, 1960 <>

bwarnock: <<perfidious <bwarnock> Brian, it's been a long time and I hope everything is well with you!> Very well - I'm living in Arlington, MA and spending most of my time (apart from work) playing music - have pretty much retired from competitive chess although I play ...

bwarnock: <Nullify <bwarnock: Doesn't 38 Rxe6 win here?> 38... Qc2+ 39. Ka1 Rxd5 40. exd5 Qc1+ 41. Rxc1 Rxc1+ 42. Ka2 b3+ 43. Qxb3 axb3+ 44. Kxb3 fxe6 45. dxe6 leaves Black up a rook for two pawns> Yes, good point, White would have to play 38 axb4 first, after which we get the ...

bwarnock: Here's a position to consider: [DIAGRAM] (which occurs after 45... e4 46. ♕f4+ ♔b7 47. h4 ♕e2 48. ♖b1+ ♖b5 49. ♖xb5+ cxb5 50. ♕f7+ ♔c6 51. h5 b4 52. h6 b3 53. h7 b2 54. h8♕ b1♕+ 55. ♔h2) which would be fun but White

bwarnock: <whiteshark After 12...Qh4+ 13.Kd1 Bxb1 14.Rxb1 Ng7 the position is completely equalised. e.g. 15.Be2 f5 16.Kc2 fxg4 17.fxg4 Nd7 18.h3 Rae8.> Better though is 13. ♕f2 (!) ♖e8+ 14. ♗e2 ♕xf2+ 15. ♔xf2 ♗xb1 16. ♖xb1 when ♘f4 17. ...

bwarnock: <OhioChessFan: <Marmot: Might go over 100 moves.> I'm sorry for thinking "You're an idiot" when you said that 40 moves ago.> Hey - the 50 move rule doesn't kick in until move 129! (Looks like it'll be over soon though with the rook exchange.)
   May-14-12 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
bwarnock: It looks like 31. ♔b1 (?!) may have been inferior (to 31. ♖he4) White ends up with a rook on e1 so the game continuation can't be played for Black after for instance 31... ♗f5 32. ♘xf5+ gxf5 33. ♖e7+ ♔f6 34. ♖c7 - Black cannot now play ...

bwarnock: From here: [DIAGRAM] 21... ♔xd8 22. ♘xf7+ ♔e8 23. ♘xh8 and now it looks like Black can get an advantage with either 23....♕b7 (!) [DIAGRAM] or hold on with 23... ♗b7 (?!) 24. ♕h5+ ...
