Apr-16-03  pegasus: why didnt white move his queen!!!
Apr-16-03  ksadler: Two options: either a) White was blindfold or b) there were a few whiskey bottles laid around the table :)
May-06-05  schnarre: The "touch-move" rule must have been in effect here for Black not to have moved his Queen.
Oct-17-07  King mega: i think its the touch move rule or Bodens a lil blind here.
Feb-19-10  TheTamale: It's a shame that Boden resigns here without seeing his sacrifice through to its fruition.
Apr-04-10  Cercatore: ops...
Dec-24-10  meppi: if such a thing happens to you - declare in a loud, authoritative voice "mate in fourteen." then calmly play Bh2+, and try to shake hands.
Dec-24-10  sevenseaman: I think they were playing in a running train and the Black Q just jumped up on d7.
Apr-04-13  Sem: And this is the same tournament that produced Anderssen-Kieseritzky?
Apr-04-13  ughaibu: If you mean The Immortal Game, no. That wasn't a tournament game.
Apr-25-13  Sem: Aha, I had no idea. Thanks!
Jan-25-15  schnarre: ...Now THAT's embarrassing (for Black)!

  fredthebear: I'm being trolled as usual by perfidious and Z scum. They don't care about the chess. They just want to be obnoxious jerks and harass others.

Beg pardon?!

Look in the mirror oh mangy one and ask yourself why you wandered over to the Bistro first thing today.
