   scutigera has kibitzed 240 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Oct-30-21 Unzicker vs Taimanov, 1952
scutigera: I haven't looked at any analysis, but I'm pretty sure that Unzicker played 15 Nb1 and 16 Nd2 with the expectation of playing Nf3-h2-f1-e3 and finally Pc4, discovered that Taimanov had busted his preparation, tried to find other ways to make Pc4 happen, then tried to find ways to ...
   Oct-30-21 Taimanov vs Petrosian, 1953
scutigera: <Abdel Irada>: To be fair to the factoid consensus, each of the terms "Eskimo", "words", and "for snow" requires a lot of defining, but you are quite correct: C.W. Schultz-Lorentzen's 1926 "Dictionary of the West Greenlandic Eskimo Language" (available today in later ...
   Oct-25-21 Chigorin vs Tarrasch, 1893 (replies)
scutigera: <Petrocephalon>: I'm pretty sure you meant "[Fred] Reinfeld", but thanks for the lovely anagram I never noticed before. For one thing, it's strong evidence that Irving Chernev was Dracula.
   Oct-11-21 Ponomariov vs Topalov, 2005
scutigera: <eternaloptimist>: Which Stockfish are you using, and how do you have it set? My Stockfish-231-64 gives me 24 a3 also on ten seconds per move, but on 60 seconds it gives me Nh6+, just like the game.
   Jul-29-21 Teichmann vs Spielmann, 1909 (replies)
scutigera: I do remember Alekhine (or "Alekhine") complimenting Teichmann's "very fine chess sensibility" in one of the two notorious articles on Aryan vs Jewish chess published in 1941.
   Jul-27-21 J Polgar vs Anand, 1999
scutigera: <A Bobby Fischer or Gary Kasparov just lives and breathes chess. They want to gut you in the tournament hall with a bowie knife.> And yet even then the element of gloating over the opponent's loss is usually absent, and I think that's shown by how such players take even ...
   Jul-11-21 Capablanca vs H E Chambers, 1912 (replies)
scutigera: "'Time Has Come Today' is a hit single by the American psychedelic soul group the Chambers Brothers, written by Willie & Joe Chambers. The song was recorded and released as a single in 1966 by Columbia Records...It is now considered one of the landmark rock songs of the ...
   Jul-10-21 Valeri Lilov (replies)
scutigera: If you're as old as I am, it's hard to see that picture and not think "Nigel Short + Pee Wee Herman."
   Jul-06-21 Furman vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1954
scutigera: Steinitz can say what he will about "aesthetic horror"; if my every loss were like Nezh's here instead of my usual slop, I'd play a whole lot more chess.
   Jul-02-21 Alekhine / Koltanowski vs Antwerp, 1934 (replies)
scutigera: I guess "tandem" isn't a familiar word anymore. All it means is a pair arrangement where one is behind the other instead of side-by-side. This was much more common back in the horse era when you might need more than one horse for a cart or carriage, but did not have horses that ...
