None. But let me tell you what I think of your kibitz.

<1. It's drool-bucket dumb. There are over 738,000 games on, and more are being added all the time. As I write this, according to the main page, there are 109 registered users on site. Inevitably the vast majority of games are going to go unkibitzed. Some interesting and remarkable games are bound to be among their number. If you find a great unkibitzed game, I guarantee I can find a better one. Also, as we see vividly illustrated on this page, kibitzes beget kibitzes, so the games that attract kibitzes tend to have been kibitzed already.

Given all this, if you don't understand why a good game hasn't been kibitzed, well, you're an idiot.

2. It's obnoxious. The author of such a post manages to simultaneously (i) congratulate himself for his discriminating taste and enterprise (ii) criticize all the other posters who failed to notice such a masterwork before (iii) impart not a scintilla of information about the game itself. At least <jerseybob> managed to note <something> about this game other than its lack of prior kibitzes, though he exaggerated both its merits and its significance.

In conclusion: if you see a good or important game that hasn't been kibitzed, say why it's so damned special. Then shut up.>
