    Chess Games & Players

    While going through some of my old USCF score sheets I found 1 from a tournament game with my friend Roy Hoppe who was a chess master & TD of the Golden Gate Open. I looked on the web & found a few of Roys games.
    Roy Hoppe
    1962 California State Championship

    Here are 2 games I think everyone will enjoy.

    Duncan Suttles is Canadian Grandmaster who became Canada's 1st correspondence GM in 1982.

    Roy would play Bobby Fischer in Davis California in a beautiful win for Fischer that would later be published. Fischer bought Roy a drink in New York after Roy achieved his chess master’s rating.

    Roy gave up chess to become a Life Master in Bridge & now runs Hoppe's Bridge Club in San Rafael, CA.
    After 25 years away from any active chess tournament competition, Hoppe suddenly felt a craving to play chess again. However, he rightly felt that it would be presumptuous and unfair to the other masters for him to claim to still be a master player, so Hoppe decided to enter the class B section of the World Open instead. In a thrilling comeback, Hoppe managed to win the $8,000 Class B prize, overcoming the fact that his mind had been numbed by 25 years as a professional bridge player, during which he had not played a single officially rated game of chess

    Alexandra Kosteniuk, Russian Champion
    Won the Russian Women's Championship with 9/11 and a performance rating of 2691 speaks for itself. Her FIDE rating was 2492 on May 14, 2005.
