I'm a patzer.

   Mar-21-07 Keres vs Botvinnik, 1948 (replies)
korger: Thanks, Ughaibu, believe me I haven't taken it the wrong way. But I never claimed that Botvinnik needed to be defended for winning his return matches. To me it seems that the strongest case against him is the cheating allegations; true or not, you cannot reject them as utterly ...
   Jan-29-07 Z Asefi vs Daryl Allen, 2004 (replies)
korger: This puzzle was way out of league of the rest of the Monday puzzles that I've encountered in my almost two years of chessgames experience. This would be a Monday puzzle only if it had started with move 34: White to move. Starting at move 33, it is perfectly suitable even for ...
   Jan-21-07 Lasker vs F Dickens, 1908 (replies)
korger: Wow, Lasker being rolled over in the mud by a virtually unknown player... This was a simul, wasn't it?

korger: <TheAlchemist> Thanks!
   Sep-26-06 Jevgenyij Boguszlavszkij (replies)
korger: <AdrianP> Boguszlavszkij is a Hungarian resident, his name written this way reflects the Hungarian spelling.
   Sep-02-06 Leko - Karpov Match (2006) (replies)
korger: <<acirce> Karpov is still a fairly strong player, no matter how long it was since he was World Champion, and better in rapid chess than classical. Play good chess, beat him and you can be happy. Comparing with Smyslov is ridiculous and you know it.> I intended that as a ...
   Aug-30-06 NN vs Allgaier, 1809 (replies)
korger: <Autoreparaturwerkbau: 3.Bxg8? is obviously an instant loss for white.> That's ridiculous. What, in your opinion, is that <obvious, instant> winning line for black? After analyzing 20M nodes until depth 12, crafty sees only a very minor advantage for black, estimated to ...
   Aug-01-06 Kramnik vs Ehlvest, 1996 (replies)
korger: Just for an interesting tidbit: "Ehlvest" means "loses" in Hungarian. Chap couldn't have picked a more appropriate name for playing this game!
   Jun-27-06 Morphy vs NN, 1858 (replies)
korger: <TylerD: Chigorin would have beaten Morphy in an entertaining way!> It's very easy to make these claims now that we have absolutely no way to refute them by anything more tangible than pure speculation. Why don't you go further and say that Morphy would have been devoured by ...
   Apr-13-06 Pierre Charles Fournier de Saint Amant (replies)
korger: <Caissanist: Really? It certainly seems clear that St. Amant was the strongest player in France in the early 1840s,> This only goes on to show how much and how rapidly the quality of chess deteriorated in France after the demise of Labourdonnais. As early as 1842 even the chess
