   Judah has kibitzed 910 times to chessgames   [less...]
   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, 1790 (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).
   Aug-12-20 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016
Judah: Does anyone have some insight into why Carlsen played Kh2 on move 27? It seems like his main plan to play for a win at this point was to push the Kingside pawns, and if that's the case, I don't know why he would give up the golden opportunity to push them with tempo. He could have ...
