Sam Sloan and TMB are the only posters who actually play OTB games... by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
....unless any of you want to argue otherwise. I checked the USCF site...Sam is active and ongoing. So am I, although you'll have to take my word for it, since the USCF wouldn't let me register under TMB (although they ran a letter of mine with that moniker once). As for the rest of you...for those who post their real names, there doesn't seem to be ANY chess activity. Correct me if I'm...

Whatever happened to...the Key Crackers guy? by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
And you thought I was going to say Mike Cavallo. But either one would be more interesting than talking about Hitler.

Dr. Fart vs. Ray: who is better at explaining the endgame? Ray. by raylopez99
Our own "Dr. Fart" aka SBD has a ChessCafe review of an endgame book by GM Danny King featured at the Chessbase.com site. (Nobody reads ChessCafe so I reference Chessbase, where I saw his review). Dr. Fart has the gall to critique a grandmaster--I guess he learned from TK who has the gall to critique GM Rowson. Patzer correcting a master-- there's a concept. In any event, you can learn more...

International Chess Master Jay Whitehead Has Died by samsloan
International Master Jay Whitehead Has Died International Chess Master Jay Whitehead has died of cancer on October 4, 2011. He died in the Zen Hospice Guest House in San Francisco after a long battle with cancer. Jay Whitehead was born in 1961 in New York. He was one of the strongest chess players ever to be born in the USA. He would easily have been grandmaster strength, but he never got the...

Why are we talking about Nazis on a chess group? by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
It doesn't bode, guys...drop it, or take it somewhere else. Nazis have nothing to do with chess. Goodbye.

Programs for tracking chess game listings in tutorial books by --
I've been using an actual chess board to study games listed in chess tutorial books. The main hassle is in tracking alternative move sequences and then getting back to the real moves. And of course starting over from scratch the next time that game is studied. I'd like to find a program that will facilitate this. Preferably allow manually playing/entering the listed game, and allowing recovery...

Overcoming opening monotony by piece swap by M Winther
During training games, instead of wearing out your openings, monotonously playing the same system over and over, you should try "Relocation variants". Simply swap a piece or two before making the first move. This means a thorough kill of all opening theory, but strategically it's the same game. It's like breathing fresh air again. Please read this article. There are also Zillions programs to...

Triumph of the Will translation of Introduction by Baldur von Schirach by samsloan
I have had a translation made of the four page introduction to the book "Der Triumph des Willens". I am not fluent in German but I know a few words and I am not entirely satisfied with this translation. If anybody can make corrections, they would be appreciated: Introduction to "The Triumph of Will” The man who today is the German Chancellor is the leader of sixty million people. He is neither...

Which college did Fischer attend? by Alex
What college did Bobby Fischer go to? He was a world chess champion so he must be a smart person and I want to be a smart person so I think that I should go to his college and I can be smart as him.

A description of chess players by Taylor Kingston[_3_]
Came across this quote in the latest Mechanics' Chess Institute newsletter. It refers to the players in the Paris tournament of 1867, but it fits some rgcm regulars quite well: I had now a fine opportunity to study the character of professional chessplayers; and for blackguardism, for nasty meanness, for dirty wrangling, and a total lack of all conscience, it would be very difficult, I am sure,...

An authoritative answer to Lopez's nonsense by Taylor Kingston[_3_]
RGCM regulars are familiar with the dispute between Ray Lopez and myself that arose from our playing out an analytical variation from a recent Anand-Carlsen game. Play terminated when Lopez insisted that postal chess rules allowed him make an illegal move at one point. Though relevant rules refuting Lopez's position were presented here, he still insisted he was right and challenged me to...

Midwest Chess Championships are done... by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
....and what a shivaree they were. I'm not sure what was the most exciting part, but it was probably seeing FM Stamnov playing in pajama pants. Other fashion mavens were FM Chow in wraparound shades, and some old bag-ladyish dude in sandals who kept falling asleep in the hallway. Chicago's own GM Gurevich was there, although not exactly setting the pairings, or the cover of Men's Life, on...
