Game Of The Week

 

I would imagine there are many readers out there who would like to have a game published, but they are afraid that I will reject their game because it doesn’t meet my rigorous standards. Well, such is not the case. I will publish anything. I have no standards.


I used to think that I should narrow my scope to avoid getting overwhelmed with entries, but clearly I am in no danger of that happening. So, I will publish any game, from any time ago, from anywhere in the world, as this week’s game will demonstrate.


The idea for this week’s game came from my encounters with two, former, Denver-chess staples, Paul Grimm and Tim Brennan.


Tim has moved away from Denver (to here, yea!), and Paul is taking a break from chess (from what I hear). I saw Tim on Memorial Day when he was talking to Brian Wall about one of Josh Bloomer’s games in Chessbase.


Chessbase is an international database of over 2.7 million high quality games run by the creators of Fritz to help design their chess engines and other database products.


I told them that I have more games in Chessbase than Josh does (Brian has 19, me 3, Josh 2, Tim 1). Tim asked whom I had played, thinking I must have been playing a GM in a simul. When I told him it was Paul Grimm, Tim just burst out in laughter, spitting his beverage on me.


But, to me, the funnier part than the fact that Paul Grimm and I have single-handedly ruined the credibility of the Fritz programmers to collect the world greatest games, is the fact that Tim Brennan has his picture on their website, as he likes for people to see his picture as often as possible. 


[Chessbase has since updated their website and the searchable player and chess game databases are only available to paying customers.  However, 365Chess.com appears to have pulled their games from the same source.  So, you can search Anderson, Paul here:  https://www.365chess.com/]

This Week In Chess

Monday June 6, 2005

 

On May 31, the CSCC had 30 members show up for the evening. The meeting started with a recap of the MN event (May 18-22, 20-22, HB Global Chess Challenge). Dean Brown gave an overview of the event. He said it was very enjoyable but unlikely to continue as the turnout was much lower than expected. Tim Brennan brought in some daily newsletter put out during the event as they included a photo of Tim and he likes for people to see his picture as often as possible.


In the USCF-rated matches (G90), Tony Telinbacco terrorized Dan St John and Mike Davis demoralized Jerry Maier.


The rest of the night was filled with ladder games (G15). Each member faces an opponent, who is close in rating, in a 2-game match. The members can continue playing matches until the opponents are tired of playing that particular member. Joe Pahk left the evening unbeaten and with the most wins. Here are the results:
