   Judah has kibitzed 911 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-07-22 J Mieses vs Reshevsky, 1935
Judah: <<goldfarbdj>: The position in "The Queen's Gambit" is after 30. ... Re4. When White played 29. Nd4, he no doubt anticipated 29. ... Bxd4 30. cxd4 Qxd4 31. Qxc4, but 30. ... Rxe4 wins the d-pawn because 31. Qxc4 loses to 31. ... Re1+ — the Black queen is still on the long ...
   Sep-07-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
Judah: <I can't understand how the organizers were so quick to wish him back.> Honestly, I've been wondering this since Carlsen decided to give up the world championship, another measure with inevitable consequences for the integrity of a chess event—in that case, the most ...
   Jul-06-22 Akiba Rubinstein (replies)
Judah: <Long and short of it is, that while incorrect--other than in the eyes of spell check which knows all--'free reign' is far more commonly used than the correct form.> What makes you think so? For what it's worth, Google claimed to have ~3 million results for "free reign" compared
   Jul-02-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
Judah: <SallySimpson: <It had to be a quick draw so Ding would see it coming and have to play risky chess to keep alive any faint hope of catching Nepo.>> When you think about it, this reasoning does not actually make sense. Given a draw from Nepomniatchi today, did risky chess ...
   Jun-10-22 Norway Chess (2022) (replies)
Judah: <Atking: ...draw was surely not his motivation> Don't forget that a draw is a win for Black in Armageddon.
   Jan-31-22 Gibraltar International Chess Festival (2022) (replies)
Judah: <MissScarlett:><Hurrah for men, what with them being a minority in society and all.> I'm pretty sure this is meant as sarcasm, but I can't figure out what it's aimed at. Can it really be the dryly factual headline, "Men catch up", that piqued you? If so, is there an ...
   Jun-16-21 Francois Philidor (replies)
Judah: <<offramp>: Yes. It is from the French <Philo d'or> which means <lover of gold>. He really liked gold, apparently.> Actually, as <von Krolock> pointed out earlier in these pages*: a) the etymon you suggest would be not French, but a chimera of Greek and ...
   Jun-15-21 Philidor vs NN, 1749 (replies)
Judah: Arguably, these constructed games where Philidor plays both sides ought to be listed as Philidor vs. Philidor.
   Aug-20-20 Tania Sachdev (replies)
Judah: <<Judah> is essentially right; the comparative suffix -er and the superlative suffix -est attach to monosyllabic adjectives, while we use "more" and "most" for trisyllabic adjectives and longer.> You say I'm essentially right, but your statement seems rather to agree with ...
   Aug-20-20 Evgeny Sveshnikov (replies)
Judah: <<HeMateMe>: Everytime I see that name, I'm reminded of the Kalishnikov rifle, the sturdy AK-47, the weapon of choice of third world soldiers.> Surely, that rifle is the namesake of the Kalashnikov variation (along with the allusion to the Sveshnikov variation, of course).
