|Jul-05-05|| ||Knight13: WHAT!? NN!? This is year 2005, man. They should have the name for the player NN in the Italian Championship 2005. NN is impossible. How could there be a NN in a tournament like in year 2005? Does the tournament don't have NN's name? Or did an unknown guy threatened the TD so he could play a game against someone in the tournament?|
The open h-file really killed him...
|Jul-05-05|| ||alexmagnus: Maybe his initials are really NN:-)|
|Jul-05-05|| ||notsodeepthought: NN has become an alias for chess patzers worldwide, in keeping with its original meaning - Nescio Nomen, which is Latin for "I have no idea how to play this game" (well, maybe not literally).|
|Jul-05-05|| ||THE pawn: Or maybe it was a simul during the italien tournament and they didn't bother having the name of the wanna-be players.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||lopium: I think the latin word of "Nomen" means "name" in English, or a variation.... So I doubt a bit about your translation. But Nescio is possibly a verb conjugate to the first person of singular, so maybe a bit true.|
|Oct-23-05|| ||alexmagnus: " I don't know the name " is the real translation... It it was a simul than it is clear but if it was the Championship.. hm...|
|Nov-28-06|| ||WarmasterKron: 4.Qd1?! is an ugly-looking move, almost as though White is deliberately giving Black an advantage. A recent game of mine got even uglier after 4...Bc5, with my opponent responding 5.Qe2?!|
|Dec-25-06|| ||Rubenus: <lopium> Nomen means: name.
The verb scire:
I know: scio
You know: scis
He knows: scit
We know: scimus
You (pl) know: scitis
They know: sciunt
Non scio means: I do not know.
That is a very common verb so they changed 'non scio' into 'nescio'.
For any other questions about Latin, ask me.
Please correct my English mistakes!
Post scriptum (after the letter): Nomen is the subject and the object of that word (it differs in most Latin words).
|Jan-21-07|| ||Landman: Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur.|
|Jan-21-07|| ||laskereshevsky: HELLO
try to ask who was NN directly to him.....
|Jan-21-07|| ||crptone: Nice quote :p|
|Jan-21-07|| ||laskereshevsky: ...CRPTONE?!....CRPTONE?!?!.....HEY!!!! I NOW YOU!!!....|
You are one of those guys "blessed" from SANTA CLAUS...isnt it?!...
|Nov-30-08|| ||Karpova: No chessplayer called Maurizio Monge (or Monge Maurizio) participated in the 65th Italian Championship in Cremona, 2005 according to http://xoomer.alice.it/cserica/scac...|
|Nov-30-08|| ||Prugno: The only player called Maurizio Monge in the Italian ELO list is currently rated 1787, and although our closed championship is not the strongest event in the world (b.t.w., watch out: in a few days the 2008 edition will start, with Fabiano Caruana playing) it would have been hard for him to get in...
So the game was probably played in the 2005 Italian TEAM Championship, and not one of the highest divisions either.|
I have no idea how this miniature, which looks like it was played around the 18th century, got into the CG database: perhaps Maurizio (or one of his friends) submitted it himself!
|Nov-30-08|| ||sleepyirv: If you're playing a reverse Scandinavian Defense, you're just asking for trouble.|
|Jun-16-09|| ||GrahamClayton: <WarmasterKron>4.♕d1?! is an ugly-looking move, almost as though White is deliberately giving Black an advantage. |
4.♕d1 is an ugly move! Either 4.♕a4 or 4.♕e3 keeping the Queen at least actively placed are the "book" moves.
|Dec-23-11|| ||Whitehat1963: Good puzzle after 11. Nc3.|

Black's only database entry, combined with the old school opening and the overall play, gives the impression of an offhand game against a low level computer.
Nice finish anyway. =)
|Jun-18-17|| ||morfishine: Wonderful combination
Even if its against <NN>
|Jun-19-17|| ||moronovich: NN vs MM :)|
|Jun-19-17|| ||HeMateMe: would this be an N&M game?|
