   Nov-04-04 Karpov vs Chandler, 1983 (replies)
 
Jesuitic Calvinist: This was an exhibition game for TV; Chandler replaced another GM who dropped out at the last minute. The players would have been encouraged by the producers to make the game interesting, and if Chandler had played the queen sac on move 28, the audience would certainly ...

Jesuitic Calvinist: Master from County Durham, England. Lived many years in Australia, where he won the Western Australian State Championship. Now lives back in England.

Jesuitic Calvinist: Schlechter only 44.71%. Karl, you wild man!

Jesuitic Calvinist: <jahhaj> I don't think "didymous duo" is actually a tautology, as "didymous" means 'twins' or 'twin-like', not simply "two". Hence Nigel's Siamese twins bit about them being joined at the hip. Oh, God, now I'm defending Nigel's jokes - it's all downhill from here!

Jesuitic Calvinist: Re pronunciation - for myself, I have adopted the rule when speaking English (my native language) with other English speakers of using strictly the English pronunciation, so "Sirse" in this case. One can always fall back on the probable Greek and classical Latin ...

Jesuitic Calvinist: Yes, very interesting, that September 2003 statement by Kramnik. Concerning the timing of Kramnik's recent statement requesting a 4-man tournament to decide his next challenger - firstly, it follows fairly naturally from the above September 2003 statement and secondly, ...

Jesuitic Calvinist: Reuben's "The Psychology of the Chessplayer" was a very funny book, I thought, with its Freudian-type view of chess. I am worried about breaching a site regulation by quoting some parts (albeit from memory), but for those who don't know the book, try and take a look; it ...

Jesuitic Calvinist: <ray>Re chess and the professions, Watson and I were sometimes the top two boards in the lawyers' team in matches against the banks, accountants, etc. When Watson couldn't make it, that left me on first board, which tells you that (i) perhaps not entirely ...

Jesuitic Calvinist: I wanted to go to the launch at Simpson's this evening, but it is too early for me. I was looking forward to meeting some of the kibitzers. Ray, if you have any other events in London that are a bit later in the evening (or on the weekend), please let me (us) know. Good ...
 
   Oct-26-04 Anand vs Ljubojevic, 1993
 
Jesuitic Calvinist: A crushing win by the young Anand. Very strong queen manouvres at the end. 15.e5! was excellent, compelling 15...g5 setting up the piece sacrifice and from there Black was always on the run and Anand hunted him down.
