Play chess onlineEditor's note: Both Johnny and myself have been unable to get the site to allow paragraphs, etc. I'm sure things will get sorted out eventually.

This is my game against John Warth. John is the "Sponsor" of the Southern Indiana Chess Club. John told me after the game that his rating was 1254. A quick check with USCF revealed that John had let his USCF membership expire in 2006 after playing in a three round tournament;USCF considers him as unrated. It was interesting to see that all of the other players in the section John played in, with the exception of John and one other, are still playing in USCF events. Check out their "then and now" ratings. The site will not let me list the information in a column (nor let you have separate paragraphs) so the name will appear first followed by the "Then" rating and then the "Now" rating. James Ballard : 1473 -- 1606 , Ron Lipman : 1396 -- 1654 , Andrew Lipman : 1319 -- 1748 , John M Marcsik ; 1395 -- 2024 , Greg Miller : 1457 -- 1665 , John beat Greg Miller in the tournament while losing to both Lipmans. One can only guess what John's rating would be today if he had remained active in USCF events! As usual I forgot to reset the board. Please click on the extreme left arrow before you start. I have not ran this through any "engines" so the flaws are all there to be found for both sides.
