Oct-12-09  Keith Dow: Is this the cheapest spite check ever?

  thegoodanarchist: Yeah, Keith, I think it is. Reminds me of my first tournament experience. My opponent arrived late and immediately stopped his clock! Then he patronizingly said "chess is a sport - you have to shake hands first".

I started his clock, and he stopped it again! I had to tell him I was going to the tournament director if he stopped it a 3rd time.

Anyway, I proceeded to wipe him off the board. His last desperate attempt to swindle me was when he wrote "Fuc* it" in huge letters across his score sheet, and then set an puny trap.

I sidestepped the trap easily and he resigned without further pompousness.

  OhioChessFan: I don't know. Rh4 had to have entered his mind.
Sep-21-13  Shams: The last couple moves are hard to figure. The pawn ending after 41.Kxc4 is trivially won-- more so than any rook ending could ever be. Perhaps Browne was in his usual time trouble and wasn't aware he'd passed the time control.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Maybe back in 1974, Rogoff wrote R-B3, and someone later transcribing the game into algebraic wrote Rc3 instead of Rc6. I wonder if it's possible to double check the original score.
