  End-games ... plus  GREAT PLAYERS!

This was the temporary home of my  <big>  Angel-Fire chess website for a few days.   ( "Big,"  =  www.angelfire.com/games3/lifemasteraj. ) 
I had "corrupted" that site and did not know how to fix it. So, for just a few days ... I moved it here.  Initially, I was not sure of what I was going to utilize this space for.

  (I have now decided to try and make this the home of an extensive on-line end-game school!  Later ...  I may also add some pretty and interesting end-game studies.)     


I need your help!!   I have many bills that are directly connected to my many Internet sites. (ISP services, software needed to create the pages that you seem to like, phone bills, a monthly bill for my main web site, etc.) Would you consider sending a donation? I suggest 25-35 dollars a year. But even if you could only send a few dollars in an envelope, it would mean a great deal to me. 

Help make this a better site!  Please send a donation, (or a contribution);  today!

  Important Message  

Feb. 16th, 2003:  After several straight computer crashes, I am finally back on line. (Apparently Windows '98 died on me. I had to upgrade to Windows XP.) Many of you sent me material, questions, endgames, etc. Thanks to the computer crashes, much of this information is ... GONE!!  If you would like to re-send it, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise, I will not be able to retrieve this information.

  **********************************************  

I just got an e-mail from a fairly  well-known IM  ...  he also has a regular column in one {relatively large} news-paper.  

This is what he said about my prize-winning analysis: 

 "Dear A.J. - -  Great job of analysis, ..."    (He went on to praise my work in some detail.)  
(I asked him for permission to use his name ... however he declined for reasons that I will not divulge here.)

Mark Weeks  provides the following  information. 

The CJA awards generated some recent controversy. Writing in  < Chess Notes, #3157: Awards, (see ChessCafe.com archives); > 
English chess historian,  Edward Winter  condemned the CJA as: 

<< a dazzlingly undemanding body with a track-record of dispensing hundreds of awards, often to self-nominees with no realistic hope of an accolade from elsewhere. The winners read like a "Whos Who," of persons who deserve absolutely nothing. The one blot on the CJAs copybook is that a few deserving chess writers have, just occasionally over the years, found their way onto the prize-list. >>  

CJA President Daniel Lucas defended the awards in a recent issue of the CJA's in-house publication The Chess Journalist. After comparing Winter to film maker Woody Allen on Oscar night, the column President's Message continued:  "Can Winter truly believe our prize winners 'deserve nothing'? Why? Because we don't meet his ivory-tower standards? What does he mean by 'no realistic hope of an accolade from elsewhere'? If not us, then who? We are the only show in town."

Here is what a few friends, chess contacts, and other people had to say about the great  Mr. Edward Winter: 
(I give no names ... simply because I do not wish for these people to endure any backlash because of my web sites.)

One well-known chess player recently wrote me and suggested that I remove the above piece. I declined on the grounds that Mr. Winter's tyranny (of pen) and criticism of others cries out to be addressed ... and rebutted.  Saturday; March 18th, 2006.
