  Jim Bartle: 45 pages of kibitzing on Wesley So in the past two days. So far.

Impressive.

Jan-31-09  mikedressner: IS Chessgames having coverage of Schachbundesliga are they at least putting the games on the site?

  PhilFeeley: Here's an unusual position. After 30 move not a single pawn or piece has been exchanged:

Kotronias - Roiz, Gibraltar round 5:

From the above position, Black has just moved Bd7. Does anyone see a break for either side or is it a draw?

Jan-31-09  KERESOV: Hello to everyone !!! Team Black will play against CGM Umansky ... I suggest we play the Nimzo-indian against him ... what you guys think ?
Jan-31-09  blacksburg: dutch!

  Jim Bartle: Yes, but it reminds me of something from "Barbarians at the Gate," the story of the takeover of RJR Nabisco.

The company president was keen on producing a smokeless cigarette, which would make the company super-profitable. He did, and everybody kept saying it has an odd sort of taste. Finally somebody figured it out: "It actually tastes like s*&/."

  Dim Weasel: Hi all! In the old Bond-movie "From Russia With Love" there is a chess game being played that is exceptionally realistic in the sense that it does not end in a brilliant one-move checkmate, as most movie games do. Does somebody know, if a real-world game was adapted to this movie?

Jan-31-09  Dredge Rivers: <Jim Bartle> Of course he likes his milk shake shaken, not stirred. If it was stirred it would be a milk stir!

Feb-01-09  blacksburg: anyone else watching this tennis match?

  Jim Bartle: Absolutely. Federer is bound to get a first serve in any game now.
Feb-01-09  The Rocket: I have a question for you benoni experts.. I wonder if black has to play e6 in the old benoni eventually in the game= because each time I do that the computer exchanges! and starts attacking my d6 pawn instead of letting me exchange in the center.

  Jim Bartle: Fifth set starting! And Federer's starting to get his first serve in...
Feb-01-09  The Rocket: Nadal WINS Australian Open! well deserved he was the better player overall in the match no question about it.

  Jim Bartle: Federer blew a big lead in the first set, and couldn't win one of SIX break points at the end of the third. Can't do that against Nadal.

Really amazing play by both. But what was strange was at the end it wasn't Nadal who got tired, after five hour match vs. Verdasco on Friday, but Federer, who had won his last two matches in about fifteen minutes.

  Benzol: One can only admire the heart displayed by Nadal in this match. A great contest to have witnessed. Bravo.
