   Jun-29-05 O Bernstein vs Smyslov, 1946 (replies)
 
the quiet man: Another opportunity to publicise Tim Krabbe's excellent work - see the link below for a more recent example of this trap. http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess2/... Incidentally - a Bernstein-Smyslov game must be an excellent vehicle for those wishing to play 6 degrees of ...
 
   Jun-03-05 Ljubojevic vs Miles, 1986 (replies)
 
the quiet man: Interesting that Tony generally had a very good record against Lubo - 13 to 6, with only 8 draws for the games in this database. Most of their games were interesting - and this was no exception

the quiet man: <Don't give him any ideas. I think his salary is free advertising.> "... light blue touchpaper and retire immediately"
 
   May-13-05 Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 (replies)
 
the quiet man: I just want to know why Rookfile's comments come out on short lines. I keep thinking it's a poem. But it doesn't rhyme or scan. Rookfile just makes Illness comments on each great woman, on each great man
 
   May-05-05 J Polgar vs Adams, 1999 (replies)
 
the quiet man: <Who gave Adams his 'spider' nickname?> Not sure anyone has done ... It's just a reference to the creepy, crawly thing that "sat down beside her" and freightened poor Judit away. Just like Mickey's attack.

the quiet man: Honest as the Jago's long ... but what or who is "Honest Jago"?
 
   Apr-14-05 Denker vs A R Shayne, 1945 (replies)
 
the quiet man: Arthur Randolph Shayne (1897-1963)was a mainstay of the Chicago Eastside Chess Club from the 1930s onwards. He always pronounced his name as "Shine" - some thought the family name had originally been German ("Schein"??). It's a pity that this game does not show him at his ...
 
   Mar-17-05 B P Reilly vs Fine, 1935 (replies)
 
the quiet man: Reilly was not a top international player - but he certainly met some: the opponents listed on chessgames.com include Capablanca, Keres and Alekhine. Best known in UK for his long and successful editorship of the British Chess Magazine. A popular man.
 
   Mar-01-05 Emmanuel Rayner (replies)
 
the quiet man: About Manny Rayner: Manny Rayner received a B.A. in Mathematics from Cambridge University and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Stockholm. From 1991 until 1999, he worked at SRI International's Cambridge Computer Science Research Center, where he was PI on ...
 
   Feb-28-05 R Nezhmetdinov vs O Chernikov, 1962 (replies)
 
the quiet man: "The man from whom Tal got his wilder ideas"
