Chess rating system[edit]

What is the source for your claim that "Soviet player Andrey Khachatoruv proposed a similar system in 1946"? Thanks. Bruce leverett (talk) 13:51, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

All of the information in that paragraph is from Hooper & Whyld, p. 332. I corrected the spelling of his last name. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 17:40, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Chessbazzar[edit]

Hi, you don't like ChessBazzar? IQ125 (talk) 14:37, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I don't know anything about it one way or the other. Yesterday someone created Chessbazaar, but it was speedily deleted. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 16:51, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

for tipping me off about the Solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. I will need to do some planning and then some traveling, but I will be there. Perhaps I'll see you? Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 18:22, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

I am definitely planning to go, but no firm plans yet. I'm trying to talk my wife and daughter into going too. I don't know where along the path I'll be. This gives some good details. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 18:28, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Photo of Capablanca knight (seem you made it)[edit]

Hello Sir,

First, please forgive my English (which is not my native language),

Allow me a question: i start to collect chessmen 6 months ago, and i am still searching for the almost "perfect" knight (to my eyes)... The one that you take photo here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:KnightCapa.jpg

he is almost perfect to me!!!

May i ask you, if you own this little wonder, to make few photos from front, face, profile, up, and down, if you do not own it, may i ask you where i can find (maybe buy) this great knight...

Thank you, Regards from France. Hervé MysetChess (talk) 02:04, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I still have that set. I will get you some more photos, but it may take me a week or longer. Here is a link to that set. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 02:16, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello Sir,

Thank you for answer.

Your photos will be very welcome.

I had find the knight from HOS Capablanca look alike your knight... but the picture you have taken "erase" that ugly "bar" that appears on the face of the knight of the Capablanca chess set ...

Thank you again for your kindness.

Collector Imperial knight
I got that set 8-10 years ago - they may have changed it since then. I didn't alter the photograph. I like that knight, but the one I like the most is this one. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 20:34, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

nice knight! I think your Capablanca chess set has been made by a master turner, it may explain the big difference between yours and the actual design... if you like chess set, my very little collection: http://zechec.wix.com/myset Regards MysetChess (talk) 20:47, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
