Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-27-09  buhomorado: Why nobody has coment this game?
May-29-14  goldenbear: Maybe it's because most of the sources here in the U.S. have "Kochiev". At least, that was the name I recalled when I went to look for it...
May-29-14  Petrosianic: Cyrillic to Arabic spellings may vary wildly. Chigorin/Tchigorin, and I must have seen a half dozen Arabic spellings of Tseshovsky.

The original comment is wryly funny though, because we have a poster who has absolutely nothing to say about the game is asking why nobody else does either. The question implies that there's a reason why this game should be commented on, when none is given. Comments like that remind me of Jeff Dunham's ventriloquist act, when he'd introduce the dummy with the words "He's a Woozle, and his name is Peanut." The way it's worded, it implies that the audience ought to know what a Woozle is.
