USCF politicians cancel most successful US girls chess event by ChessFire
New format for the Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls (SPNI) The U.S.C.F. has decided to cancel the Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls, the most prestigious and most successful all- girls national championship in U.S. history. They also cancelled the U.S.C.F. Polgar Committee. Unfortunately, no one officially informed me of these decisions (not even as of today!) and I did...

Chess-9: swapping pieces in the initial array by M Winther
"Chess-9 : swapping pieces in the initial array" In this relocation procedure only 8 *non-mirrored* positions are generated, plus the standard position. The point is that it should always make sense to choose any of these positions. They are strategically logical, with both weaknesses and strengths. I just want to strike a blow for non- mirrored positions. Although FRC positions are fun, I...

Also as far as I remember Zurab won a european championship (a few years ago) after taking back one of his moves (same as what Kasparov did against Judit Polgar !!). He confirmed the fact in a video published in a CB Magazine... This guy really stinks... "Offramp" a écrit dans le message de news: ... ...

Who could YOU beat, and when by Offramp
I was reading about one of the City of London Churches and it mentioned a Rev Owen. There were plenty of those through history. But I thought about the famous chess player. I thought, I bet if I went back in time and played him I'd have no trouble beating him in a match. He would have the advantage in some openings like the King's Gambit, but in many openings and most endings I would wipe the...

Wheels within wheels; matches within matches by Offramp
Often, long rivalries contain small feuds. In the 1974 final candidates' match Karpov & Kortschnoi played 7 French Tarrasch games. That is the one where black accepts an isolated d-pawn. Karpov was usually very good against IQPs but all seven games were...

Amber: Carlsen & Ivanchuk tie for first ... by micky
The topsy-turvy performance from Magnus Carlsen continued till the bitter end of the Amber Tournament in Nice, France, as the Norwegian teenage world number one blew his chances of a remarkable comeback lone victory following a rare blindfold oversight. Despite Carlsen scoring 13 wins (and was only one short of Anand's Amber record number of wins - 14), it was veteran Vassily Ivanchuk, at 41,...

Smyslov dies by EJAY
It is my understanding that the 7th World Champion Vassily Smyslov died at the age of 89 in a hospital I believe due to heart failure.Smyslov was the oldest living World Champion ( I believe Spassky is now the oldest living WC) at the time of his death. I would rate him as the strongest player during the 1950's. He was the only player to win 2 Candidates tournament during the 50's. He also is...
