Oct-08-05  elahevad: A beautiful Queen sacrifice! I'm not sure that I've ever seen a Queen sacrifice coming out of a Queen's gambit as early as move 7 before!
Oct-08-05  mr. nice guy: Twigg went out on a limb with 7.Ne5.
Oct-08-05  notsodeepthought: <mr. nice guy: Twigg went out on a limb with 7.Ne5.> And black didn't realize its ramifications.
Oct-08-05  mr. nice guy: Very good <notsodeepthought>. I'm still learning the pun game. I'll have to add you to my list of master punsters. (WMD, technical draw, and you).
Oct-08-05  notsodeepthought: <mr. nice guy: Very good <notsodeepthought>. I'm still learning the pun game. I'll have to add you to my list of master punsters. (WMD, technical draw, and you).> I would be very flattered to be in such distinguished company, and in turn I will look out for your wordplays in the future...
Oct-08-05  mr. nice guy: <notsodeepthought> Check out A J Goldsby vs Tkachiev, 1995

And give me a grade.

Oct-08-05  notsodeepthought: Excellent - A+! (though I may be a little biased when it comes to that particular user).
