I miss seeing the 'good old boys' from bygone days. I've met Jay and watched him play blitz, but never got to know him.

It would be really cool if some of the old timers would post some videos of their glory days. Many of them mean so much to me for inspiring me to keep at the game. Kim Commons, James Tarjan, Jack Peters and so many more that deserve mention. We have Joel Benjamin and Larry Christiansen on the ICC from past days, but it would be nice to hear the old familiar voices once again. And boy did these guys have some stories to tell that would add to the interest in their games and that era.

Back then there were no computers, just Informator and tournament bullitens to go by. You had to keep up as much as possible, but in the end, the game really started at move 1, not like today where an 'A' class player needs to be well versed in what was played in Bilbao yesterday. Also, things were less computer-like, very human and emotional play was the order of the day.

If you could prod anyone you know from the past to make a video or two it would be really nice to have for posterity's sake.

Very good game against Walter, very complicated and subtle play (I did find the first quiz answer but felt totally lost in the others - except for that mate after Bc4 instead of Qc4).

Is there any truth to the story that someone glued down the e-pawn in one of Walter's games? Probably just one of the many fantasy stories floating around.

Nicely done, a sharp stuggle! Shame you missed that bishop sac on a6.

You were clearly playing very strong chess back then, may I ask why you decided to quit?

I have to admit Dennis, you always seem to have a lot of guts and grit. If it's playing an unfamiliar opening against the likes of Brown or daring for that sacrifice against Yusopov, you seem unphased and ready to just go after whoever has the misfortune of sitting across from you.

Thanks, Ross. A correction though: it was Yudasin, not Yusupov, that I sac'd and won against. (I like your version though!)
