|Jun-20-06|| ||Whitehat1963: The greatest simul of all time!!|
|Dec-21-06|| ||GufeldStudent: The World was better. They simply missed a key intermezzo.|
|Dec-21-06|| ||littleshiva: Can you tell me who decided to resign ?
Does that person ignore that winning is impossible when resigning ???

No they probably simply realized that when it is hopeless, you resign, and lose with dignity and humility. Instead of playing on in a hopelessly lost position hoping for a forunate mistake from the other person that players at this level probably won't make anyway.
|Apr-10-07|| ||Themofro: Quote of the day:
Lose with grace and resign in a timely manner. If you are a lot of material down and don't have sufficient compensation, it is time to lay down your arms. This way you show your respect for both chess and your opponent.

|Jul-08-07|| ||sanyas: I knew that girl would be the death of us all someday.|
|Dec-30-07|| ||DanLanglois: 18 Bd3 is not bad.
26 Rd4?, however, is quite bad.
26 Re3! and White might even be better.
|Jan-09-08|| ||D.Observer: What happens after 34. Nxe4 Nxe4 35.Rxe4?|
|Jan-09-08|| ||dabearsrock1010: <D.Obsever> you mean e3 and then 35...Rh1 36. Re1 Rxe1#|
|Jan-09-08|| ||RandomVisitor: After 20...Qxg5

|Feb-01-08|| ||Tabanus: Which world is this?|
|May-03-08|| ||OhioChessFan: I just quickly played the game over, and my first impression is Bd3 isn't that bad.|
|May-03-08|| ||OhioChessFan: RV's analysis seems obvious. That Queen sitting on g5 is begging to have a Rook oppose her.|
|Aug-23-08|| ||just a kid: It's the end of the world as we know it...|
|Jan-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: the world is ending...|
|Jan-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: so was the end of the world this huge explosion, or was it a mistake the world made in this game?|
|Feb-25-09|| ||tivrfoa: what computer the world used?|
|Feb-25-09|| ||JediKush: instead of the sad g5.. after Kc1 R h3... and black just got a pawn.. heh i mean i can see this going to a nice endgame with black having good chances...|
|Mar-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: actually 18 Bd3 was a huge explosion that blew the world up|
|Dec-08-10|| ||awayeraj: No No No.....I won with 28.Re6.....Everybody else played RxR|
|Dec-09-10|| ||Sastre: <awayeraj: No No No.....I won with 28.Re6.....Everybody else played RxR> 28.Re6 Rxe6 29.dxe6 e2 30.Re1 Rf1 .|
|Aug-20-13|| ||GumboGambit: Come on, eyes on the board, The World.|
|Aug-21-13|| ||HeMateMe: The World were a bunch of whoosies. Why didn't they win the pawn on e3, then immediately play a4, creating their own passed pawn?|
|Jun-26-14|| ||GumboGambit: <? (2004) >
Now wait a minute: Am I supposed to believe that NO ONE in THE WORLD can remember anything about the game venue besides the year???
|Oct-06-15|| ||scutigera: <GumboGambit>: Even if Kosteniuk stayed in one spot the entire game (she might have been phoning it in from a limousine for all I know), her opponent's location is a bit difficult to pin down. Perhaps "Chessgames.com" or "The World" would be a good location; I favor the latter, as a reminder that Kosteniuk won on her enemy's home turf.|
