Default So for their first move the get rid of Evens????????

What a blunder. I would get rid of anything before I dumped Evens. How
about getting rid of ABS of chess and Chess Solitaire anyway? When I
get the magazine, he is the first thing that I read. Even if he weren't
so popular, the fact that he is their most famous writer makes this a
blunder. They have tried this before. They don't like Larry because he
his honest, cares about the players and isn't leftwing.

CONFIDENTIAL CHESS LESSONS

(Please put this on the Internet -- James Schroeder)

What happened to Evans On Chess this June?

In the long tradition of jackasses as Editors of Chess Life,
Daniel Lucas is the worst. He made a new format for the
June 2006 issue, and it is horrible. Enormous amount of
wasted space. Blue ink, which is practically unreadable.
Very small type for the Classified Ads and other mistakes
so that the overall appearance is atrocious.

I know, what are the odds?

WITH FRIENDS LIKE HIM

What Schroeder describes above sounds more

like his own self-published "Confidential Chess
Lessons" rag than anything else. Larry, with friends
like him, Evans needs no enemies. -- Taylor Kingston

Jim Schroeder is a real man of chess in my
estimation. He has praised me and Arnold Denker to
the sky for "The Bobby Fischer I Knew and Other
Stories," and he has scourged this writer with a
powertool for the Alburt-Parr work on learning chess.
Incredible invective.

I did not resent a word of Jim's hammer treatment.
He has also blasted Larry Evans, who merely shrugs it
off -- unlike Taylor Kingston, who has never forgiven
Schroeder for calling him an idiot.

Give me a man with red corpuscles in his blood
like Jim Schroeder to a mendacious manque such as
NM NOT Taylor Kingston any day. Jim does not have it
in him to tell cold-blooded lies of the sort we have seen
from Mr. 2300+ Elo who posed as Xylothist and Paulie Graf
to praise himself and attack his enemies on these forums.

As for Jim Schroeder's confidential chess
lessons, I have read all of them with great interest.
There are always nuggets to be found as well as a
lot of nonsense. If you want insights into some of
the masters, Jim Schroeder is to be preferred to
Edward Winter. If you want your dates correct, then
read Mr. Winter's dead stuff.

If you want real insights and general high accuracy,
then GM Larry Evans and GM Ray Keene are two writers
I would recommend.

Default So for their first move the get rid of [????????

A couple years ago, I received a xeroxed(?) mailing from Schroeder,
charging that a still-living US Grandmaster had thrown his last-round
1955 US Open to GM R. (First prize was a car, and Reshevsky did indeed
lose the car on tiebreaks to GM R.) I may still have the mailing
tucked inside the relevant 1955 issue of Chess Review.

I don't give the mailing, or Schroeder, any credence. Did anyone else
receive it?

If Schroeder is lying, I don't how Parr can think highly of him. If
Schroeder is not lying, I don't see how Parr can think highly of the GM
in question.

Then again, Parr is happy to cash a paycheck from someone who wants to
cozy up with someone Parr describes as a "murderous thug."

Wost of all, Parr has not yet made an amende honorable for butchering
Szen's greatest achievement.

"After eleven rounds, Reshevsky, Evans and Rossolimo were tied.
Reshevsky then won from Sherwin, ahead of time to avoid playing on his
Sabbath, and the title and top prize hung on the result between Evans
and Rossolimo. At very late hour, tournament-wise, Evans almost
unaccountably, botched a draw and Rossolimo won" - Chess Review, as
quoted in Mechanics Institute Chess Room Newsletter #235.
