   Mar-12-23 Morphy vs de Riviere, 1863 (replies)
mrknightly: Laissez les bons temps rouler!
   Jan-01-23 Bereziuk vs A Izhnin, 1976 (replies)
mrknightly: I guess I could agree with <perfidious> but then we'd both be wrong. There's already enough curmudgeonliness coming from that quarter, ganz gewiss.

mrknightly: "Somewhere Over the Rubinow"
   Dec-31-21 M Barth Stanford vs D Hassabis, 1997 (replies)

   Oct-08-21 H Avram vs Fischer, 1957 (replies)
mrknightly: <newzild> The KID reference is to the Kings Indian Defense and to Abraham's son, Isaac, the kid, whom God told Abrahm to sacrafice. See Genesis, chapter 22.
   Sep-19-21 I Figler vs N Kasimov, 1967 (replies)
