Kibitzer's Corner

May-16-12  pawn to QB4: just been watching him play GM Antonio at blitz for a score of about 25 - 5. Speed of thought is amazing.
Aug-02-12  belgradegambit: Just won his first round game at the World Junior Championship.
May-04-13  BIDMONFA: Conrad Holt

HOLT, Conrad

Apr-25-14  hudapri: Possibly the account Conrad93?
May-29-14  Grog: <hudapri: Possibly the account Conrad93?> That's not his account. It's some other bloke apparently with the same first name born in the same year.
May-30-14  Wyatt Gwyon: Conrad93 didn't know the en passant rule until a few months ago. Seriously. So no.
Apr-01-15  jtd200: Nice draw on Naka, Conrad!
Apr-01-15  AsosLight: What draw? The pure man had a winning position and then finally collapsed. The Japanese proved too strong for the redneck to the "american" championship.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <AsosLight> We do not need such ignorance and pure hatred as you have displayed in your post.
Apr-01-15  AsosLight: So are you self appointed judge? Great, you can finally make something more than drinking beer in front of the cable Mr Al Bundy.

  perfidious: <Asholight: So are you self appointed judge?>

Someone needs to call you out on the evident racial vitriol of your posts, as you have displayed on other occasions, regarding Kasparov.

<Great, you can finally make something more than drinking beer in front of the cable Mr Al Bundy.>

Beer's not my bag, thank you very much.

Now go back to sleep like a good boy, collect your pat on the head for serving as a shill for prejudice and all will be well.

Apr-02-15  AsosLight: Lose attitude and learn chess. Then you can probably play to the "american" championship. Everyone is welcomed except the Indians. Those are the ones they exterminated.

  perfidious: <Asholight: Lose attitude and learn chess....>

Sound advice you would do well to heed.

<Then you can probably play to the "american" championship. Everyone is welcomed except the Indians. Those are the ones they exterminated.>

Thank you for another lovely dose of bigotry.

Apr-02-15  dumbgai: What in the world...?

Pretty sure <jtd200> was making an April Fool's joke about C Holt vs Nakamura, 2015 (either that or mistaken about the result).

  Fusilli: <Asholight: Lose attitude and learn chess....>

<perfidious> is a fine player, which we know because he discloses who he is. If you are going to remain anonymous, the least you can do is behave respectfully.

There is a name for those who use offensive language and insults on the internet anonymously: here (in "America") we call them cowards.

Apr-09-15  bbking689: Congrats on beating So!!!!! Have to admit that So was playing so-so.
Jul-09-15  waustad: Happy birthday!
Jul-09-15  Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday! Conrad Holt!
Mar-30-19  JohnBoy: Has Holt retired from classical play?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <JohnBoy> What makes you suspect that? There are plenty of 2018 games in this database, and it is likely incomplete.
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: Because he disappeared.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Yes, indeed: User: Conrad93
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <whiteshark> I don't think that was ever confirmed, and in fact it seemed unlikely that the user Conrad93 was Holt. See older posts below.

Holt is a strong player, and Conrad93's posts often seemed to come from a, well, not-so-strong one.

Besides, if Holt wanted to post obnoxious stuff anonymously on a website, would he choose a username that gave him away?

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Fusilli> Yeah, I think you're right about that, but I kind of thought it was funny.
