|Feb-03-06|| ||Cogano: Hi <Benzol>. I surely hope chessgame.com heeds your advice, lest the clan McDonnell take offence. You sure don't want to piss off a clan! LOL! Take very
good care and have a great day. Cheers mate!|
|Apr-08-06|| ||Knight13: I'm trusting Benzol on this one. :)|
|Apr-22-07|| ||Knight13: McDonnel is nothing but a mad attacker. You'll probably beat this guy if you play an opening where attacking your opponent's king is not good. Try his patience, make his psychological thinking messed up. This guy has a "have-to-attack" disease.|
|May-07-07|| ||sleepyirv: Umm... if he died in 1835, how does he have games from 1837?|
|May-08-07|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: The 1836 game is just a duplicate of a 1834 game (with slight, and apparently erroneous, changes in the game score). The 1837 game most likely just has wrong year, too.|
|Jun-26-07|| ||blackburne: Alexander McDonnell, the preromantic. Article in spanish with best games, biography, results in the web "Ajedrez de ataque".|

|Jun-26-07|| ||keypusher: <Alexander McDonnell, the preromantic.> |
You can say that again!
|Jul-18-08|| ||myschkin: e.g. Mikhail Bulgakov, the twentieth-century Russian author of the classic novel <The Master and Margarita> (Tip!), as well as various other novels and plays, died of Bright's Disease.|
|Sep-19-08|| ||Cactus: Watching his games, he certainly doesn't seem like a player 'of GM strength' as the bio says. Most games he'll have all kinds of moves that I can see at a glance are obviously bad, and this is especcially strange seeing as he sometimes took <hours> for one move (there were no time controls at the time).|
|Nov-15-08|| ||Fanacas: you do not now for wich move he thought long and for wich move he did not ^^|
|Jul-23-09|| ||Knight13: I'm celebrating my 10000th kibitizing right here!|
|May-04-10|| ||kjr63: "McDonnel is nothing but a mad attacker."
You are too harsh to McDonnell. Look his games in matches 4,5 and 6 vs. La Bourdonnais. I'm sure you will change your mind.
|May-22-11|| ||Penguincw: < McDonnell died in 1835 of Bright's Disease and is buried in Kensal Green cemetery in London. >|
What is Bright's Disease?
|May-22-11|| ||sleepyirv: <Penguincw>An older term for kidney disease. Very painful.|

Yah. Probably didn't have hospitals back then.
|May-22-11|| ||sneaky pete: I don't really know how internet advertising works, and of course I never click on links, but this one is really tempting. In the upper right hand corner of this page, instead of a picture of McDonnell, I see a voucher offering a 70% discount on a very tasty looking Big Mac in the city where I live. How appropriate!|
|May-22-11|| ||talisman: happy birthday!|
|Sep-17-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: What?? No picture for this player????|
|Sep-17-11|| ||JoergWalter: I think it its a well known fact that there doesn't exist a picture of this M'Donnell.|
|Sep-17-11|| ||tpstar: This is a job for <BIDMONFA>!!|
|Sep-17-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <groan> Don't bring him back.|
|Sep-17-11|| ||perfidious: <<groan> Don't bring him back.>|
I'll sign that.
|May-22-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Chess Master Alexander McDonnell, today you are remembered!|
|May-22-12|| ||brankat: R.I.P. Master McDonnell.|
|Mar-12-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.worldchessacademy.com/Ma...|
This is probably his most brilliant win (vs. La Bourdonnais) ... and it is not even on this website!!!
