Diocletian: Happy Birthday, Bob 2021
   Oct-12-20 Daniel Abbas vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
Diocletian: <> I DON'T LIKE THE LIGHTING HERE!! Why all these popup advertisements? Prefer you raise the subscription price, please. More money! I can't study the daily puzzle fifteen seconds without having to close an ad. The most offensive ad is the the most frequent ad
   Sep-18-20 Tolnai vs Klovans, 1991 (replies)
Diocletian: I found the combination but could not play it. My mind's eye did not see that at the end White's Knight would be hanging: 37...QxN. I looked too hard for mate in a corner.
   Sep-12-20 Tal vs Kasparov, 1992
Diocletian: Tal lost his second confrontation to Botvinnik in part because of poor health. He had a kidney removed - I don't remember - either shortly before or after the second match. The rest of his sparkling career was handicapped by alcohol and cigarettes; otherwise he would likely have ...
   Aug-05-20 William Bolt
Diocletian: How about a picture of Mr. Bolt?
   Aug-05-20 Steinitz vs W Bolt, 1865 (replies)
Diocletian: <Nosnibor> I agree. It's the greatest pun ever on It's ribald, sophisticated, hilarious! However, I don't get it. Is it one of those puns that supposes a lot of TV viewing to appreciate? Does it require a knowledge of Romanian poetry? I guess I'll have to think ...
   Jul-03-20 L Karlsson vs H Olafsson, 1979 (replies)
Diocletian: My first choice for Black's move was 25...PxP as in the game, trying to open lines against the weaker king position. After that I simply recoiled from the complexity of this position. I am forced to take full credit here, the fault lying within the game itself and not in its ...
   Jun-14-20 So vs N Grandelius, 2019 (replies)
Diocletian: A game as ugly as a mess of Clebsch Gordan coefficients. The word here is gross, not insane. White should have played 15 OOO, 17 Bd2. 23 N-b1 is not only ugly but, according to my engine, losing as well. I'm adding this game to my collection of 'most hated games.' "Chess, like ...
   May-25-20 E Sedina vs J Majdan, 2006 (replies)
Diocletian: <Phony Benoni I like puns that describe the game.> Ditto.
   May-21-20 Tarrasch vs Mendelson, 1879
Diocletian: I got 47 for par 50 guessing moves. It bothered me the whole game that White's dark squared bishop was inactive, but this did not bother Siegbert much. He didn't move the bishop even once.
