|May-10-05|| ||TheAlchemist: Imagine this guy at the board. What would he be doing?|
|May-10-05|| ||aw1988: Oh dear. Who keeps finding these guys?|
|May-10-05|| ||Annie K.: <TheAlchemist: <Imagine this guy at the board. What would he be doing?>>
From all the horror tales I've seen hereabouts about the OTB behavior of some GM or another, sounds like this guy(?) should fit right in. ;p|
<aw1988> LOL, I have the impression some games get in here mostly on their pun value as well...
|May-10-05|| ||fgh: How many weird names are in this database?|
|May-10-05|| ||soberknight: <fgh> I have kibitzed 456 times to date (counting this comment). As everyone knows, most of them have been lame puns, such as "The Juice is R Loos." There are at least 300 funny names on the player list, and I hope to discover more of them.|
|Aug-30-05|| ||JeffCaruso: Actually, the one time I met him he seemed to be quite a good-natured fellow, in a tournament in the 70's in Boston. He was rated way higher than me, we had a very exciting double-edged game, and he was gracious enough to show me where I made my final fatal mistake.|

".. Savage's 48-year chess career began as a 10-year-old boy in a hospital cot, when during a short convalescence his fifth grade teacher brought him a pocket chess set and accompanying teach-yourself-chess book. Savage was check-mated into a new passion. .."
|Apr-16-11|| ||FSR: Savage and I both played in the first Midwest Masters in Chicago, in 1982, and each drew all five of our games. One of his games, against the former president of USCF Tim Redman, was Redman-Savage. I joked that it sounded like a slur on Native Americans.|
|Sep-07-11|| ||perfidious: It's odd to see that ten-year gap in Savage's career at CG, because our only encounter was near the end, during which he often played in swisses in the Boston area against all the strongest players, himself being one of them.|
Savage served as Chess Horizons Game Editor for a while in the late 1970s and did a fine job (in this then 1800 player's opinion).
<FSR> Another common opponent (?)-we played at Leominster, Mass in 1981.
