  whiteshark: I think he's out of the woods now.
Aug-25-08  Judah: It's a pathetic rule to begin with. Shaking hands with one's opponent should not be a requirement of the game.
Dec-13-08  WhiteRook48: Cheparinov's game fell Short.
(White ♖ is my name, capturing d8-Queens is my game :)
Jan-09-09  WhiteRook48: oh this is definitely one of my favorite 2008 games.
Feb-22-09  WeakSquare: Sicilian is bad for Black anyway...
Feb-22-09  WhiteRook48: stupid Short game
Feb-28-09  WhiteRook48: I play the Sicilian with Black all the time!
Apr-20-09  WhiteRook48: and it's not really bad
May-21-09  WhiteRook48: this game should be deleted from the database!

  Landman: <WhiteRook48> I disagree, the "game" should be retained as it documents the handshake incident.

<WhiteRook48:the handshake game should be deleted from the database> Well not exactly - but <CG> certainly has it the WRONG way around - the forfeit & commentary should be the first post

72...Kxe7 73 Ke5 Kf7 74 Kd6
OR ...Kf8 75 Ke6 Kg8 76 Kf6 Kh7
77 Kf7 Kh8 78 Kxg6 Kg8
79 Kf6 Kf8 80 g6 Kg8 81g7

Jan-25-10  znsprdx: <MichAdams:> super hilarious anecdote and quip - better than the cheap win... this should have been a draw...had it been Black to move,,,
Jul-06-10  I Like Fish: cut it ...
short ...
May-18-11  ragtag: It was a short fight:
Jun-27-11  ragtag: I have short hair and <a shorter attention span>.
Aug-05-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: yes the opening was : sicilian defense, handshake declined
Aug-05-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: actually short declared mate in 38 moves. and Ivan realized that he could not defend in any way, so he resigned.
Aug-30-11  Robert Hill: Black has a hire wining % in this opening too, but if they had played on it would have fallen under a different Sicilian opening line.

  perfidious: <testguy: Sicillian: Davailov system, Handshake Declined Toilet Variation>

Isn't the Toilet Variation already taken? Wasn't there a line in the Tal treatment of the 2.f4 anti-Sicilian that was so named (possibly 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.Nc3), supposedly because its originator thought it up while in that part of the house?
