  MissScarlett: <Aghiad Mero was told that all arabs where cheaters. He demanded an apology.>

OK, not all.

Oct-27-21  Albertan: Elizabeth Pahtz:Why chess players can’t win against artificial intelligence:

Nov-04-21  waustad: She’s on a pace so far to get another GM norm in Riga.
Nov-07-21  ndg2: With her win in the last round of the FIDE Grand Swiss, she not only has secured a spot in the next FIDE Grand Prix cycle, she's now to become a GM, since this win secures the last necessary GM norm. Congratulations!
Premium Chessgames Member
  0ZeR0: <ndg2>

That's good to hear. Hard work pays off. Congrats, and keep on fighting, Elisabeth!

Nov-08-21  waustad: Congratulations on the title!
Nov-08-21  Absentee: <Doktorn: She seem to have quite a confrontational attitude.>

She seems to be an entitled jerk who had her aide take the rap.

Nov-08-21  AngeLa: congrats on a gm title @ 36 , w0w?
Nov-08-21  Z truth 000000001: Time for a new <CG> photo of her perhaps?

(You know, to celebrate her GM title!)

Nov-09-21  SirChrislov: This chess beauty just made GM after coming 2nd at 2021 FIDE Grand Swiss.

Congrats! ???

I’m going out for German sausages.

Nov-10-21  Z truth 000000001: <SirChrislov ... I’m going out for German sausages.>

Brat... you could do wurst!

  keypusher: <Albertan: ´´For every kilo I gained,I gained ten elo points.´´:>

Why am I not World Champion?

Nov-11-21  Z truth 000000001: <<kp> Why am I not World Champion?>

Not enough bratwurst?!

  MissScarlett: Carlsen seems to have packed on a lot of muscle. I would like to see him topless.

  fredthebear: <MissScarlett: Carlsen seems to have packed on a lot of muscle. I would like to see him topless.>

Ask, and ye shall receive! (Pay close attention...)

On second thought, I probably won't be fulfilling anymore requests for photos, videos, or autographs... I just happened to know this one was out there.

Oh, here is Levy's take on the day:

Nov-11-21  Absentee: <keypusher: <Albertan: ´´For every kilo I gained,I gained ten elo points.´´:>

Why am I not World Champion?>

I think that only works for women.

Nov-11-21  Z truth 000000001: <FtB> everyone else is losing it, but not Hikaru - completely nonplussed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: <just made GM after coming 2nd at 2021 FIDE Grand Swiss.>

Apparently there is some dispute about the validity of her second norm, so the title is not yet sure.

Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: She looks normal, but there's something up with the angle of that chessboard.

Perhaps the future upgrades on could include multiple pictures of a player through the years. Keep the scowl, include a smile!

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: why would you pose before a broken chessboard?
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: Looks like both kings are in check. Those pawns are jacked too. She must be casting spells, hypnosis, or the like.
May-25-22  Albertan: ´´People either love me or hate me ´ :

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: I would rather love you...
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: ... given the choice
