|Aug-07-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <<Conrad93><Anyone with knowledge about bishop vs. pawns endgames would have played this an instant.>>|
|Aug-07-14|| ||perfidious: <Wyatt> That statement was so moronic that it was not worth a response--another day at the beach in the Kingdom of Southeast Idiotville: ruler, <Conrad the First>.|
|Aug-07-14|| ||Jim Bartle: To my knowledge < conrad93> has never commented on a game in progress, despite many opportunities. If he did we would learn if he really could see what claims anyone could see.|
|Aug-07-14|| ||perfidious: <Jim> That would be a 2700-level treat.|
And I am not referring to the pearls of wisdom he would cast from On High, either.....
|Aug-07-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <perfidious: <Wyatt> That statement was so moronic that it was not worth a response--another day at the beach in the Kingdom of Southeast Idiotville: ruler, <Conrad the First>.>|
This one is right up there with the en passant comment from a few months back.
|Aug-07-14|| ||perfidious: <Wyatt> Is en passant that funny little move with that there pawn y'all make, like? Or was it a Freudian slip and did y'all mean <ein pissant>?|
|Aug-07-14|| ||Whitehat1963: Not to get off topic, but does anyone have opinions on what games might have the most moves worthy of exclamations or double-exclamations on both sides of the board?|
|Aug-07-14|| ||MarkFinan: R Byrne vs Larry Evans, 1965|
Whitehat1963. In my opinion... This game.
|Aug-07-14|| ||Whitehat1963: <MarkFinan>, that's a very good candidate! Thanks! Others, anyone?|
|Aug-07-14|| ||Whitehat1963: I'm no expert, but I think these are pretty remarkable:|
Topalov vs Kramnik, 2008
R Cifuentes vs V Zvjaginsev, 1995
Kupreichik vs Tal, 1970
Tal vs Geller, 1958
Tal vs Miller, 1988
Topalov vs Anand, 2005
Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999
|Aug-07-14|| ||FairyPromotion: <Whitehat1963> Very interesting question! Though it penalizes miniatures a bit, I would like to see what other members think as well. |
The first game that immediately came to my mind was Serper vs I Nikolaidis, 1993, and as far as exclamations by single side are concerned I think it should be tough to beat.
As for both sides filling the game with exclamations and double exclamations I'd say A Volokitin vs Mamedyarov, 2012 takes the cake.
If you want to have a look at the draws as well, then Anand vs Topalov, 2005 is the obvious choice.
|Aug-08-14|| ||Whitehat1963: This one has some pretty jaw-dropping moves:
Geller vs Karpov, 1976
|Aug-08-14|| ||Whitehat1963: I don't know how good it is on both sides, but for sheer entertainment value, it's hard to beat this gem, one of my all-time favorites:|
Marshall vs G Marco, 1904
|Aug-09-14|| ||Whitehat1963: And here's one more:
Capablanca vs Marshall, 1918
|Sep-02-14|| ||AylerKupp: <plang>, <Jim Bartle>, <Wyatt Gwyon>, <perfidious> Dont you all know by now that <Conrad93> is a classic troll and is only saying things this to get a rise out of you? And this time he apparently succeeded.|
Remember: Don't feed the trolls.
|Sep-02-14|| ||Petrosianic: What's a Classic Troll, exactly? One who only trolls at 45/2 speed or slower?|
|Sep-02-14|| ||zanzibar: <Petrosianic> 9600baud - if you're odd enough to remember!|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Ke2: <Conrad93> Lolololol this troll account is fantastic|
|Aug-09-15|| ||Raaj Dey: Shirov's 47. ....Bh3!! was just the brillancy...that I became one of his fan. Its a 3400elo move.|
|Aug-22-15|| ||Imran Iskandar: <Whitehat1963> This game is one of my all-time favorites.|
Morozevich vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2009
Although there are some mistakes, both sides played brilliantly, and in my opinion it was chess at its most entertaining as well as mind-boggling.
|Oct-18-15|| ||Alex Schindler: Holy cow! I didn't think i could still be surprised by Shirov's endgames til I came across this one. What incredible grasp of the position!|
|Nov-12-15|| ||paavoh: And this has never been a GOTD! Can you believe it??|
|Dec-13-15|| ||sleepyirv: <paavoh> It needs a good pun! I suggest a reference to Thomas Becket: "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?"|
|Jan-07-16|| ||WDenayer: 47. ... Bh3 is a fantastic move. Utterly fantastic.|
|Jan-12-16|| ||scholes: One of the best moves in history. And not even game of the day.|
