Chessbase has published the remembrance of Eric Rosenthal that Marc Polonsky wrote for this year’s Gulf Coast Open! You can see the story here.
Eric and I exchanged games back in our youth (the old-fashioned way — with letters!) and I present here a nice game that Eric played vs Mikel Peterson in St Petersburg a very long time ago. RIP my friend.
Brilliancy prize games submitted by Peter Dyson as judged by IM Javad Maharramzade. I managed to wind up on the wrong side of the first prize game so I’ve provided some brief notes — to help ease the pain. 🙂
