   Aug-30-18 Morphy vs Harrwitz, 1858 (replies)
Judah: <keypusher: Courtesy of <SBC>, here was Morphy's comment after his third loss to Harrwitz: <"How astonished all these men are going to be. Harrwitz will not win another game.">> I just read this quotation in Edge's book ( ), ...

   Jun-01-18 Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858

Judah: << john barleycorn: <alexmagnus: ... The problem with using neural networks for mathematical discovery is, you need to formulate a goal, ...> How about calculating the next 100 Mersenne primes> This would not be an appropriate goal, as the only way to verify that the ...
   Mar-16-16 Bird's Opening (A02) (replies)
Judah: (Opening of the Day again) Bird's opening is an old favorite of mine. Admittedly, it gives White a smaller edge than other first moves, but it leads to asymmetrical games that are a lot of fun to play, IMO.

   Nov-11-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Judah: Carlsen has essentially given up his Bishop to take White's pawn. This game looks won for Anand, even to the naked eye. Congratulations to Anand on tying the series up right after going down a game! He did the same after Gelfand beat him, and went on to win that match.

   Apr-11-13 Tylor vs W Winter, 1933 (replies)
Judah: <<An Englishman>: Good Evening: One droll oddity--in the final position, every one of White's pieces is en prise> I wouldn't call the ♗ on b1 en prise, since it's protected by the ♖.
   Apr-02-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
Judah: <<Daisuki>:There is an easy way to avoid penalties for performance ratings due to not playing oneself. All you have to do is add a number of draws "against oneself" equal to the number of games played against each other opponent. In this tournament everyone played everyone ...
