First Email LOA Tournament
In 1996-97, I organized a 7 player Email
round robin tournament
(in which I won all my games). After the tournament completed,
I went back and commented on all of the games, (not just mine);
and several other players also contributed.
The skill levels and playing styles of the players in the tournament
varied widely, so these games constutute a good teaching reference
for beginner and intermediate level players.
This game between Fabio Dulcich and Philip Cohen, from AISE Grand Prix, 1993.
This applet frame includes two versions of the game: commented in English and
commented in Italian. Download.
This game between Paul Yearout and Fabio Dulcich appeared in NostAlgia #356,
P.33. , and reproduced here with permission. It's especially notable that
not once during the game did either player threaten to connect! Download.
