   Sep-19-17 O Seuss vs H Hurme, 1969 (replies)
Arconax: <FSR: I also now have two games where I mated by capturing en passant, which is probably even rarer than mating by castling.> Yes, that seems logical given that castling occurs in most games, while en passant is less common. But, what are the odds that the same player has ...

Arconax: <harrylime: Here are my top ten Greatest Chess Players of ALL TIME ...> That list is obviously a list of your favorite ten chess players. And that is just fine. But you shouldn't call it a list of the ten greatest chess players, because, obviously for anyone with some insight,
   Sep-19-17 Tanguy Ringoir
Arconax: He has also scored well for Belgium in chess olympiads, over 50% in both 2012 (6.5/10) and 2014 (6.5/11).
   Sep-19-17 Yannick Pelletier
Arconax: When asked about his favorite food, he answered: "pellets of swiss cheese, of course".

Arconax: <offramp: Today I'm going to avoid all exchanges. I won easily> But as my godfather advised me: "Life is not worth living if you don't exchange some pieces now and then". Never quite understood what he meant.
   Sep-19-17 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2010
Arconax: <Toribio> Weird comment.
   Sep-19-17 Euwe vs Loman, 1923 (replies)
Arconax: Even your avatar looks politically incorrect to me, <offramp>.
   Sep-18-17 O Balogun vs K Botsoe, 2014
Arconax: First Black allows White to establish an impressive pawn centre, then he severly weakens his king's safety. White (Balogun, our new Nigerian friend from the games against Carlsen in the World Cup) exploits this in an impressive and forceful manner.
