Alpinemaster: I just wanted to thank all the biographers that contributed to <Carlson-Karjakin World Championship Match 2016>! Through collaboration, I believe we have drafted a spectacular, dispassionate and historically accurate synopsis...and a heck of a good read too. Magnificent ...
   Aug-04-16 Santasiere vs S E Almgren, 1942
Alpinemaster: <slowcrawl> Nope - you should have read the article you are referencing! <phony Benoni> isn't quite correct here, either. In his booklet Santa stated that it is called Santasiere's Folly because he meant to grab the c-pawn and play an English...instead, he got ...
   May-12-15 Barna Dalmy (replies)
Alpinemaster: Whoa! Chess historian alert: I seriously doubt Dalmy is the oldest chess player (and human) alive, today. Need a date of death on this guy and over 100 more on the site. Please see:

Alpinemaster: No Naka. No legitimacy. No interest.

Alpinemaster: "Knockin' Around Naka" (You heard it here first folks)
   Dec-22-13 Polerio vs G da Cutri, 1590 (replies)
Alpinemaster: This game is amazingly educational for two reasons: The early Romantic (super tactical aggression with little concern for strategy) tendencies of Il Putino's companion, Polerio, lead him to confidently pursue positions which would enable the champion to wrest his opponent from
   Dec-22-13 G da Cutri vs Perbin, 1580 (replies)
Alpinemaster: If this game was indeed played in 1580 it would have been, in all likelihood, played against Paolo Boi in their vigorous match in Rome. However, it stands to reason that such superior defensive play (for the time) could only have come from the 1575 (Unofficial World ...
   Dec-06-13 Short vs Kasparov, 1989 (replies)
Alpinemaster: The pun is as entertaining and witty as the game! This one gets my vote for GOTD: Pun of the Year. :)
   Nov-30-13 Ivanchuk vs Nakamura, 2013 (replies)
Alpinemaster: Thank you, SirRuthless! I feel like the first 28 moves were building up to the one of those special fighting draws that are exponentially more beautiful, brilliant, and educational... but after 29. Re3 I felt like White forgot the purpose of his whole position: the Bishop pair!
