|Jul-23-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Quite the Queen sacrifice, but have tried to improve on White's play afterward. Seems as if he could won more efficiently somehow (21.Bd5!?), but perhaps it's only a hallucination.|
|Jul-23-17|| ||offramp: By a very happy concatenation of circumstances White has been obliged to have the name <Felix> twice. This has only happened to one other person in history: Boutros Boutros-Ghali.|
|Jul-23-17|| ||ASchultz: There's Jerome K. Jerome, too. Unlike Ford Madox Ford, this was not a pen name!|
Far less whimsically, there's Sirhan Sirhan.
