|Feb-10-06|| ||Phony Benoni: I was Black in this game. My opponent was not John Donaldson, but Ken Davidson. I wouldn't admit this if it weren't true, since I was over 400 points higher rated than Davidson.|
|Feb-10-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Props (is that the term today?) for honesty.|
|Feb-10-06|| ||tpstar: <Phony Benoni> Is your first name David by chance?|
|Feb-11-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Well, it ain't Dagwood or Dogbert.|
|Feb-11-06|| ||tpstar: <Phony Benoni> Sorry, I thought you were someone from Michigan. My apologies.|
|Feb-11-06|| ||Fan of Leko: I wonder if black is OK after Rad8 (instead of c4?). At any rate it would not be so easy for Donaldson to win.|
|Feb-11-06|| ||Phony Benoni: <tpstar> Sorry that I misled you. The first name is David, I do come from Michigan, and Resignation Trap sent me. If you remember me at all, you'll know that I have a weird sense of humor.|
<Fan of Leko> Yes, Rad8 would have been better. But, frankly, if I had been playing Donaldson, I still think he would have won!

|Nov-08-06|| ||WannaBe: If this becomes game of the day, potential pun, <Moody Blues>.|
|Nov-09-06|| ||Phony Benoni: <WannaBe> If that's the only way I can become part of the GOTD, so be it. There is no such thing as bad publicity.|
But I would like to thank chessgames.com for correcting the name of my opponent.
|Jan-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: What kind of last name is Moody? Just seems so weird for a name...maybe I forgot to study history (!!)|
|Mar-01-09|| ||moodini: There is nothing wrong with the name Moody! By the way it comes from the Dutch word 'moedig' which means courageous (well that is what I claim anyway).|
