  1. Does Norowitz play the Stonewall as White?

  2. Haha, Joel was really pissed off losing this game!

  3. isnt there a video of this guy playing someone in washington square park?

  4. yes @TheScatterBlaster, you are right, you can find it searching "blitz chess at washington square park 1"

  5. sorry i wanted to go to the video ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Dacha! great YaacovN, hello from Guatemala from Talzan.

  7. I believe its the london system not stonewall. and joel messed up earlier with the knight maneuver when he got it stuck in an awkward place infront of his fianchettod castle, and then when the queen went where the bishop really should have been, it was all over from then on

  8. I like JB for his game of the week on ICC. Let's face it. It's blitz chess…even in a hacker game (I am maybe 1800) or a high level game…you want to win. I don't know Jb personally at all, but his reaction to the loss was pretty natural. I congratulate the former U.S. champ (more than once I think?) for being active in these kinds of tournaments

  9. At 3:40 black missed an opportunity to fork the King and Queen. He had plenty of time while white was thinking. Is there a reason I'm missing that he did not fork to capture the Queen?

  10. Hi Info Freak, the white Bishop on g4 would be able to take the knight

    The bishop on B4 is protecting it.
