I am Frederick Rhine. The United States Chess Federation awarded me the titles of National Master (at OTB chess) in 1983, and Senior Master of Correspondence Chess in 1997. I played in the 1997 USCF Absolute Championship (open to the top 13 correspondence players who accept their invitations), scoring 6-6 (+2 =8 -2). Alex Dunne wrote in his book on the Absolute Championships, "This was Rhine's only Absolute and he held his own against the best. His two losses were against previous Absolute winners." http://bit.ly/1NB55YP On the USCF's April 2022 list of the top correspondence chess players, I am the third highest rated player, at 2411, just six points below the top player. https://www.uschess.org/component/o... The August 2020 issue of Chess Life magazine had a profile of me (for the text, see Frederick Rhine (my August 1, 2020 comment in my forum)).

I attended Lane Technical High School in Chicago with the late Chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello until he moved out of Chicago. Lane's chess team won the Illinois state championship my junior and senior years, becoming the first school ever to win consecutive championships. Albert also became a master, as did my teammates Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus. The late FIDE Masters Albert Charles Chow and Morris Giles were also Laneites.

In July 2013, I played in my second and third regular-rated tournaments of the millennium(!), the Greater Midwest Classic and the Chicago Class (under-2200 section). I tied for second, undefeated, in both, winning $700 and $550, respectively, and brought my rating back over 2200. http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j... http://www.uschess.org/assets/msa_j...

I have contributed to hundreds of chess-related articles on Wikipedia under the handle Krakatoa, notably "First-move advantage in chess," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-... "George H. D. Gossip," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George... and "Swindle (chess)," http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_..., all of which are almost entirely written by me. The first two of those have been Today's Featured Article, the highest honor a Wikipedia article can receive, one attained by about one out of every 1,400 articles. I have received various Wikipedia awards, including the Imperial Triple Crown Jewels and the Timeless Imperial Triple Crown (which only 12 Wikipedians have received). My user page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:K....

I was the proofreader for the book "Triple Exclam!!! The Life and Games of Emory Tate, Chess Warrior." I was a contributor to the Chicago Chess Blog, http://chicagochess.blogspot.com. There, I discovered and documented what Taylor Kingston calls "the Mortimer Effect," which has lowered the Morphy Numbers of many modern players (maybe you!). https://chesscafe.com/the-skittles-...

One hundred and eight of my games are in chessgames.com's database. My favorites are F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981, K Thompson vs F Rhine, 1992, and F Rhine vs A Boerkoel, 1996. Rhine-Sprenkle was published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volume 32) and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (2nd ed.) at 183 n.19). In Volume 33 of Chess Informant, my 18th move (18.Nxd6!) in that game was voted the 8th-9th most important theoretical novelty in Volume 32. The game was also cited in MCO-13 and "The Aggressive Nimzowitsch Sicilian 2...Nf6" by Eric Schiller, and occupies an entire chapter in all three editions of "Beating the Sicilian" by John Nunn. It is game 218 in "1000 TN!! The Best Theoretical Novelties" (Chess Informant, 2012).

Thompson-Rhine was published with my annotations in Chess Informant (Volume 57), and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (Vol. B (3rd ed.) at 172 n.163). Jeremy Silman discusses Thompson-Rhine and my analysis of it in his book "Winning with the Sicilian Defence" (2nd ed.).

Joel Johnson in his book "Attacking 101: Volume #005" says of my blitz game F Rhine vs NN, 2019, "White played a flawless Smith-Morra Gambit that IM Marc Esserman would have been proud of." The endgame in F Rhine vs Alex Zhao, 2019 is included in the book "Tactical Training in the Endgame" by Cyrus Lakdawala. Cyrus also mentions me, albeit without naming me, in his book "In the Zone: The Greatest Winning Streaks in Chess History" when he refers to "The Classical Sicilian, which as one of my atheist students told me, is the closest thing he has to a religion." Richard J Palliser discusses the opening of F Rhine vs S Nagle, 1997 in his book "tango!" Georges Koltanowski published F Rhine vs A Artidiello, 1976 in his syndicated newspaper column.

Commentator Mato Jelic somewhat extravagantly calls my game E Sollano vs F Rhine, 1977 "The Greatest Ever Blitz Game Played in Chicago." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wl8... See also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWa... Someone also made a video (moves only) of Aagaard vs F Rhine, 2021, a 2-1 bullet game where I drew and should've beaten the grandmaster - if only I'd had time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-O...

My game F Rhine vs NN, 2010 is mentioned in the "Checkmate Patterns Course" by Raf Mesotten and John Bartholomew on chessable.com.

I composed this study, which Pal Benko published in "Benko's Bafflers" in Chess Life, May 2006:

White to play and draw

The solution is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalem... It is based on an earlier study of mine, which Benko also published in his column. Both of these compositions appear in Harold van der Heijden's endgame study database. https://www.chess.com/news/view/76-... The above study is also cited in "The Complete Chess Swindler" by David Smerdon and "Rewire Your Chess Brain: Endgame Studies and Mating Problems to Enhance Your Tactical Ability" by Cyrus Lakdawala.

I was once one of the world's best players at suicide chess (also known as "losing chess"), a chess variant where one wins by giving away all of one's pieces. http://perpetualcheck.com/antichess...

I have successfully submitted 188 puns for Game of the Day. Game Collection: Puns I submitted. User: johnlspouge has remarked, "As far as I can tell, <FSR> is churning out 'actual puns' almost as fast as I can [insert bodily function of choice]." The coveted 2013 Caissar for Best (Worst) Pun went to "Control-Ault-Delete," the pun I submitted for Fischer vs R Ault, 1959, the Game of the Day on December 19, 2012. I won the 2019 Caissar in the same category for my greatest pun ever (and IMO one of the greatest chessgames puns ever) "Late December Back in '63: What a Lady, What a Knight!," N Littlewood vs B Brinck-Claussen, 1963, the Game of the Day on December 30, 2019.

I am responsible for World Junior Championship (1957), Vidmar Memorial (1969), Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014), and Game Collection: Drawing lines, among others.

I am a member of the ChessBookie Hall of Fame, having finished fourth in the Summer 2015 Leg, seventh in the Winter 2016 Championship Leg, ninth in the Winter 2017 Championship Leg, ninth in the Spring 2017 Leg, and seventh in the Summer 2017 Leg.

  FSR: Have you ever wondered what the Würzberger Trap in the Vienna Game is? The first mention of it I could find is in MCO-5 (1933). It notes that after 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.f4 d5 4.fxe5 Nxe4 5.d3, Black should play 5...Nxc3 6.bxc3 d4. Modern theory agrees, with Stockfish 14.1 (depth 52) assessing this line as -0.87, i.e. large advantage to Black.

The authors of MCO-5, Griffith and White, state that the alternative 5...Qh4+ 6.g3 Nxg3 7.Nf3 Qh5 8.Nxd5+ "is M. Würzberger's Trap." I think the "+" after 8.Nxd5 in this context means "with advantage to White." White indeed scores well in this line (73.8% in 275 games on ChessBase Online). But Stockfish 14.1 assesses the position as 0.00 after 8...Nxh1 9.Nxc7+ Kd8 10.Nxa8 Bg4 11.Bg2 f6! (a move that has apparently never been played) 12.Be3.

The Oxford Companion to Chess (2d ed. 1992) at 470 n. 628 defines "Würzberger Trap" much more precisely as arising after 8...Bg4 (this is the alternative to 8...Nxh1) 9.Nf4 Bxf3 10.Nxh5 Bxd1 11.hxg3 Bxc2(??) 12.b3. The book states on page 451 that the trap "was named around 1930 after the Berlin banker Max Würzberger, who spent much of the 1930s in Paris. Black's bishop on c2 is trapped (5...Qh4+ is probably an error)."

Instead of the crass blunder 11...Bxc2??, correct was 11...Bf3! 12.Rh2 Nc6=, as in the stem game for this variation, Dubois-Dufresne, Rotterdam 1863 (1/2, 40)! Dubois vs Dufresne, 1863. ChessBase Online shows five games that reached the position after 11.hxg3 between 1863 and 2006. In each of them, Black played 11...Bf3!, scoring two wins, two draws, and one loss. So the Würzberger Trap is not of much value. Herr Würzberger may be the only person who ever managed to pull it off!

Hooper and Whyld are correct that 5...Qh4+ is an error, not because it gives Black a bad game, but because the alternative 5...Nxc3! 6.bxc3 d4! gives him an advantage.

Comment by Frederick Rhine: An extraordinary example of boxing in one's opponent's pieces. Smerdon wins an endgame down a rook and a knight.

  FSR: In case you hadn't noticed, Stockfish 15 was recently released. This video explains how to download it and use it in conjunction with Windows 15. It's shockingly easy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxt...

Windows 15 already?!

Skipping Windows 9 was bad enough, Microsoft is going for gold, really hop-skipping versions now!

More seriously, the video you gave is mostly for Chessbase users - though SCID is roughly the same.

  FSR: Inspired by Rapport's opening choice against Dominguez yesterday, I play Alapin's Opening. 2...c6 is doubtless not the best reply. After 20...fxe6, Black's game was all pawns and no hope. https://denverchess.com/games/view/...
