|Feb-18-07|| ||Whitehat1963: <Jesus is from Cuba? That ought to make for an interesting correction to the bible.>|
I'm sure some who played him between about 1910 and 1936 might have thought that Capablanca was his reincarnation!
|Mar-03-07|| ||Marmot PFL: He looks like another prodigy whose interest in chess declined as an adult, if the number of short draws is any indication.|
|May-26-07|| ||tonsillolith: <Marmot PFL> how dare you make a serious comment about chess when everyone else is humorously making the connection between his name and that of a historic figure!|
|May-26-07|| ||LPeristy: <<WarmasterKron> Blessed are the cheesemakers?>|
Clearly it's not meant to be taken literally. He's clearly referring to all makers of dairy products.
|Jun-11-07|| ||cyruslaihy: Jesus said: peace, be still, i want a quiet positional game, not a tactical melee|
|Jun-11-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: What a spectacular attack Nogueiras played in the game featured as today's GotD!:
Hjartarson vs J Nogueiras, 1988.|
He also has the distinction of being the winner in the GotD (from Christmas Day 2005) with my all-time favorite pun: J Nogueiras vs M Gongora, 2001
|Jul-17-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Nogueiras!|
|Jul-17-08|| ||blacksburg: am i the only one who thinks about jesus giving someone noogies when i see this name?|

|Mar-24-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: I tell ya, this guy's bigger than the Beatles! :)|
|Apr-20-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: Does the Budda have an entry?|
|Apr-20-09|| ||shortsight: Nope, Buddha, if ever, would have played chaturanga.|
|Apr-21-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: Ok, I'll bite. What the heck is chaturanga?|
|Apr-22-09|| ||Open Defence: its a game that was played in India in ancient times. Shatranj and then Chess is supposed to have developed from it|
|Apr-25-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: <Open Defence> Thank you. Maybe someday, I'll actually care. :)|

|Jul-17-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Nogueiras!|
|Jul-17-12|| ||karnak64: Many happy returns, GM Nogueiras!|
|Jul-17-13|| ||Nosnibor: Best wishes on your bithday GM Nogueiras! <GrahamClayton>In your post May21 2012 you have uploaded a game stating that Nogueiras won it but unless there is a mistake it would appear that Sznapik was the victor.|
|Jul-17-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 55th birthday to GM Jesus Nogueiras, probably most famous for (almost) checkmating with just a king and knight vs a king and pawn (J Nogueiras vs M Gongora Reyes, 2001).|
