Thanks to User: jessicafischerqueen for generously presenting me with a year of premium membership!

I want to thank the User who presented me with another year of premium membership!

Akiva Rubinstein, Jose Raul Capablanca, Vladimir Kramnik, Anatoly Karpov and Judit Polgar.

Thanks to User: technical draw for one year of premium membership (2008.03.30 to 2009.03.30)! It was a nice experience.

For my article <Research about Rubinstein’s mental stability prior to the First World War> have a look at Akiba Rubinstein


Interesting quote:

<Eric Schiller: <Hehateme>Sorry, I forgot about the ridiculous"plagiarism" charge. Winter got his knickers in a bunch because in my combination and tactics books I never said where the game combination was first published! Nor has anyone else, ever! It is indicative of his "scholarahip".

That's why I have a Ph.D. and he doesn't and never will.> Source: Eric Schiller

Remarkable quotes:

On De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750 ahmadov: <I have just played a similar game on :)> whiteshark: <<ahmadov>: the black side ?? LOL>

doremi: <Hey, what is going on in Ivan vs Mamed? How did Sokolov get 1 hour at move 26?> Sokolov hired Danailov at move 25

azaris: <I hear the Russians put a dangerous scorpion in Danailov's luggage and it stung him. The scorpion died three days later of poisoning.>

RookFile: <Wow, something scary just happenned. Karpova and I independently had exactly the same thought.> Thank you, <RookFile>

Carlsen vs Leko, 2007
In respond to <Ulhumbrus>' post: euripides: <<After 11 Qxd4 White has a Q on d4.> There's no arguing with that.>

Russian Superfinals (2007)
DCP23: <But it turned out there was an even faster way of exploiting the weakness of the light squares, as Korbut demonstrated with 31..Qh6! and 32..Qxh2+!. /Am I starting to sound a bit like <notyetagm> yet? ;) /> malthrope: <<DCP23 <as Korbut demonstrated with 31..Qh6! [MOVING BACKWARDS WITH THE HEAVY QUEEN [SEE THREAT]> and 32..Qxh2+! <DEMOLISHING THE K-SIDE WITH A HEAVY BLOW!> /Am I starting to sound a bit like <notyetagm> yet?> Yeah <DCP23> you are but just a little bit! :^)>

Chessgames Challenge: The World vs G Timmerman, 2007 Artar1: <Hugin: I want you to download the last Toga engine and test it out on your comp against Fritz 10.> Thank you for your kind offer.

Applying for a free premium membership at <> OhioChessFan: <Dear Chessgames, I am a small boy in ummmmm, Ethiopia. I have pretended to be from this place called "Ohio", because I hear that the people in America have food to eat and also many pictures of Jessica Simpson to look at for free on magazine covers. Please make a starving boy happy and send him a free America Chessgames Premium Membership. And also some free Jessica Simpson pictures.>

On S Erenburg vs D Fridman, 2005 (Pun: "Pawn Shop") Rocafella: <It's happened. has finally resorted to incorporating sexual innuendo into puns for GOTD. One thing to say to this disgusting act. Great stuff, keep up the good work! =D> unsound: <<Rocafella> I think I should save you possible future embarrassment and point out that there is a vast difference between a "pawn shop" and a "porn shop.">

iamverywellatchess: <I can check-mate with a ladel of cucumber broth! What you refuse to understand is that my play is so large that many human beings of the United States cannot determine what I am doing!>

On Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 (before it got submitted) offramp: <Seems like a reasonable game, though it may not quite make the standard. Submit it and see what they say.>

Capablanca vs Milner-Barry, 1935
Jesuitic Calvinist: <For those who know something about cricket, I read recently that former England captain Graham Gooch, who played his first test match in 1975, was the first player with a moustache to play for England since 1946.>

After game 2 Deep Fritz vs Kramnik 2006 (Kramnik's one move checkmate) and repeated spamming from a Topalov-Fanatic: square dance: <i think topalov fans are just angry again since kramnik took topalov's only remaining title: world champion of blunders. it was the only thing topalov still had over kramnik.>

Dr. Jana Malypetrova Hartston Miles Bellin
Jesuitic Calvinist: <I am glad this lady has been successful career-wise; it can't be easy going through life with a name that sounds like an inexplicably popular line of the Nimzovich Defence.>

jamthegenius: <I have a tactical and attacking ability and style that is comparable to Alekhine, yet fall somewhere below Kosteniuk.>

Mamedyarov vs Topalov, 2006
Bufon: <<acirce35..Rxc8 36.Rxc8 Rxd6! 37.exd6 Qd2 forcing a perpetual was a fairly easy draw> This is the kind of recomendations one would expect from a Kramnik fan, finding the draw lines, thanks to God, Topalov is no Drawmnik. He gave us a nice defeat by the hands of a young prodigy instead of a draw by repetition.>

notsodeepthought: <WMD: <LIFE Master AJ>, would you consider the email from Ray Keene to be the highlight of your chess career?> <I don't know if AJ's already answered that - he's on my ignore list - but my guess is that he considers that email to be the highlight of RAY KEENE's career.>

euripides: <Does the Romanian federation issue Lifemaster titles ?>

After Kramnik blundering in game 2 against Deep Fritz 2006: Eyal: <<technical draw: There is no happier group in the world today than the Kramnik bashers. Danilov is getting drunk tonight! (just like every night).> So maybe tonight he is staying sober.>

LIFE Master AJ: <A.) You are nothing more than a loud-mouthed, rude little fish ... a punk with a bad attitude. B.) You are igmored, (again).>

On Essent 2006, Round 2
AdrianP: <<Danailov Press Release> As can be seen from the Essent tournament, Kramnik has no right to call himself the world chess champion. After all, his contender for the title is being roundly trounced by players not even in the top 10. We, that is Topalov and I, refuse to recognise the recent match in Elista, meaning that Topalov remains the true world chess champion. Keep those loo doors closed.>

Vasily Smyslov acirce: <If there is an argument between two philosophers, but nobody is watching it, do they really spam the Smyslov page?> (After a discussion mainly between <danielpi> and <Plato>)

samvega: <ughaibu: I'm also a one finger typist, however I feel the Chessgames members are worth the effort of occasionally employing a second finger, dont you? <Our gratitude for the effort you put into capitalizing woud be that much greater if you'd ever actually written something worth reading.>>

Claudia Noemi Amura ConLaMismaMano: <First Latin American woman to become a a male IM.> ketchuplover: <gender reassignment?>

LIFE Master AJ: <Just to answer one person's question, the owner of this website has stated - repeatedly - that he is not interested in my annotations or reproducing all of my games.>

larsker: <No list would be complete without an honorary mention of Goldsby's collected works with a special regard to his Sounding off webpage.>

Steppenwolf: <17. Be5, f6. 18 Ng5, f5. And now what?> you vs yourself: <<steppenwolf>17.Be5 f6 18.Ng5 f5 19.Nh6#>

LIFE Master AJ: <Did your mother drop you on your head? (ON PURPOSE?!???!??) You need to stop STALKING people, OBEY the rules of this site, and get a life!!! You also need to stop smoking crack, and maybe go to a rehab center ... get your life together.>

   Jul-14-14 Fahrni vs Alapin, 1909 (replies)
