Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-13-05  KingG: Nice game by Murey against Kasparov's former trainer. I think this game is a model of how to play this particular variation(4...exd3) of the Falkbeer.
Mar-10-09  KingG: Ahh, the old days when I used to spend most of my time on chess studying the King's Gambit and posting on I think I only started improving when I decided two things:

1)the king's gambit is more trouble than it's worth. It's fun in the early days, and I would recommend it to a relative beginner, but if you want to play it properly you need to know quite a lot of theory(it seemed to me at the time anyway). I don't mean you necessarily need to know lines very deeply, but there are a lot of tricky defences you need to know about, and in certain mainlines you are fighting for equality, or at best the better endgame. When the attraction of the KG becomes better endgames, you start to wonder if you are playing the right opening.

2)My time on is better spend playing over games than kibitzing on them. In particular, there are certain pages that should be avoided at all costs, like the Fischer and Kramnik pages(at the time Kramnik was having his worst ever year, and it was the height of Kramnik bashing). I don't even want to know how much time I've wasted just on those two pages going over the same arguments again and again.

  chancho: <KingG> The Goldsby page back in the day was particularly nasty with all the flaming that was going on there.

  JointheArmy: <chancho> Those were the funniest pages I've ever read on the internet. That is saying something considering this is a chess website.

I've been trying to access them via an archive spider (a device that allows you to read the internet in the past), but CG blocks it for some reason. It works for other forums such as Sherdog though.

There are still gems like this, but unfortunately CG deleted most of the pages and banned the best posters (hayton3).

<<New User>: Hello AJ, I noticed that you took part at tournament ___, can you tell us about it? Also, if you feel like a game, let me know and I'll tell you where to look me up.

<Nude Abuser>, what do you mean by "Hello"? Are you a Life Master, or at least a GM, that you can talk to me just like that? What's YOUR rating? I bet you don't even have a home page on this site. And no, I don't play on the internet, because internet chess players are cheaters, especially YOU, since you all use computers. That's what my old sergeant in the Army told me. Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk.

P.S. Nyuk >

Mar-10-09  KingG: <chancho> Yeah, the Goldsby pages were comedy gold. I understand that wanted to tone down the flame wars going on, but that stuff was absolutely brilliant, and it was a crime to delete it. Someone should have saved it for posteriority. Now there is a lot of stuff cut out from the discussions, and hardly anything makes much sense.

<JointheArmy> Yeah, that was some brilliant satire. Unfortunately I can't recall the genius that came up with that.

<CG deleted most of the pages and banned the best posters (hayton3)> It was a shame about hayton3. He probably should have let the Goldby stuff go in the end, but I don't think he deserved to be banned. He also got into some hilarious flame wars with <steppenwolf>. I think he got banned to, but I don't know why.

  JointheArmy: I believe they banned <steppenwolf> for trolling the GM vs The world games.

What I like about is it is VERY hard to get permanently banned. In fact these are the only people I know who have gotten perma bans.

User: hayton3

User: WMD

User: steppenwolf

User: JohnThornton

User: sitzkrieg

I know there's more, but for some reason these are the only ones I can remember right now.

For the record, <WMD> has been rumored to be William Hartston in real life.

Mar-10-09  KingG: Yeah, I read the rumour about WMD being Hartston, but was there any evidence to back that up? Does Hartston still hold a grudge against Ray Keene?
Apr-30-09  JimmyVermeer: Why did classify this game as a Charousek Gambit? The opening moves of the Charousek Gambit are 1 e4 e5 2 f4 d5 3 exd5 e4 4 d3 Nf6 5 dxe4 Nxe4 6 Qe2. Completely different from how this game started.

  OhioChessFan: The anonymous poster with the AJ parody was <notsodeepthought>

FWIW I think Hayton was way overdue to be banned and Chessgames was extremely (too) patient with him.

Oct-19-16  clement41: I'm surprised that among the several comments above, none has given the pretty mate finishing the game that Nikitin likely foresaw before resigning: 20 ...Kf7 21 Qh7+ Ke6 22 Qg8+ Ke5 (...Ke7 23 Qe8#) 23 Qd5#

if 21...Kf8, then 22 Qg8+ Ke7 23 Qe8#

Obvisouly, given the material balance and the white rook en prise, white had better calculating the whole line and make sure it actually mates
