Oct-04-04  Knight13: So many CHECKS in the ending! White's check is more valueable than Black's checks. Good game... lol.
Jun-10-05  DanRoss53: Black could have drawn with 142... ♕g7 143. ♕c4+ ♔b2 144. ♕g8 ♕d4+ 145. ♔e2 ♕e4+ 146. ♔f2 ♕f4+ 147. ♔g2 ♕e4+ 148. ♔g3 ♕e3+ 149. ♔g4 ♕g1+ 150. ♔h5 ♕h2+ 151. ♔g6 ♕g3+ 152. ♔f5 ♕f3+ 153. ♔e5 ♕e3+ 154. ♔d5 ♕f3+ 155. ♔e6 ♕e4+ 156. ♔f7 ♕f4+ 157. ♔e8 ♕e5+ 158. ♔f8 ♕f6+ 159. ♔e8, but I would have to imagine both sides were rather low on time by this point.

  WannaBe: At least this picket's charge worked out for white.
Apr-27-06  soberknight: This is Lautier's SECOND 151-move loss in the database!! That's probably a feat that will never be matched...

  GrahamClayton: I have a question regarding the Melody Amber blindfold tournaments. I presume that the players are not wearing "blindfolds" while sitting at the board. How are the games conducted?

Well, I heard that they sit at computer screens containing blank chessboards. They move pieces by clicking on the empty squares and then dragging. I'm not really sure, but you could ask on the Amber Blindfold tournament page.

if not blindfold chess, how do we call it?

blankboard chess.. :)

Jun-01-11  kevins55555: LOL... Black can't find a safe place for his queen to check, he has to make a move and then boom, checkmate! Lucky White left a space for the black king to go to! LOL again. LOL
Jan-20-14  Francio: Very nice (and long) game. Its interesting that it was played in a blinfold tournament. It should be GotD, there must be lots of puns to use.
