    I do not like Lloyd Fell as he has been openly anti-semitic over the years, but happy birthday anyway

    Happy Birthday to Lloyd, and congrats on the milestone. Is Lloyd still playing chess?
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    As far as I know he is. He has the distinction of having played in every Doeberl Cup since it started in 1963. Congratulations on a memorable and continuing career. I recall from Cecil Purdy's "Chess World" years ago that Lloyd was also a draughts champion at one stage.

    Everyone has their flaws and I'd call him a grumpy old man.

    But Theres always a good story or puzzle from Lloyd Fell. I remember playing and beating him, I think it was ADW earlier this year. I played a nice game against Lloyd's Nimzo Indian.

    I'll ad my belated congratulations to the thread too. Lloyd was seen kibitzing at the Australian Open today and (I think) yesterday too.

    How I claim the right to criticise Christianity coz it is my culture, Lloyd Fell claim to come under the same catoregy coz he has a Jewish background.

    He has also criticised other races who he claimed cheated or threw games at chess. He was barred for such outbursts after I admittedly provoked him further after a touch move debacle by his opponent. I late became friends with the leading players of these other ethnic groups. They admitted that they threw games so that their ethnic mate could win prizemoney.

    Lloyd also had Jewish friends who became my friends. I played chess with them at their premises.

    So everything must be looked at in context.

    At an exhibition game, the first time I met him and spoke to him, I was two peices ahead but blew it as I was explaining the game to onlookers as I went.

    Oh well Lloyd, younger players today have a lot more chances in life and chess career than you had.

    A reason LLoyd was tough and in your face was due to him being a union official during rough and much-poorer times
