   Parachessus has kibitzed 356 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-15-19 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
Parachessus: The universal vending machine manifested <perfidious> here, no doubt in response to the collective consciousness on this page. New Thought principles reaffirmed yet again.
   Sep-12-19 F Felecan vs F Rhine, 2019 (replies)
Parachessus: One of the rules in Lev Alburt's book "Chess Rules of Thumb" is to always try to swap off the opponent's fianchettoed bishop as Felecan does here (11.Bh6 and 12. Bxg7).

Parachessus: <steinitzfan> I am going to familiarize myself with the rules of shatranj, since it is the direct ancestor of modern chess. In Shatranj the king and queen can be placed as they are in modern chess in the opening array or they can be switched. That would be great if you ...
   Sep-09-19 London vs Edinburgh, 1824
Parachessus: <gezafan> I wish some GM would write a book on all these ancient correspondence games played between major cities. It was just such a delightfully romantic era unlike the staid chess of today.
   Sep-09-19 Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian (replies)
Parachessus: There was an old guy who would come into my local post office years ago to check his P.O. Box and he looked so much like Petrosian I would think "Great to see you again, Tigran!" whenever I saw him.
   Sep-07-19 Fred Reinfeld
Parachessus: "The noted American analyst Fred Reinfeld has recently attempted to rehabilitate this opening (the Center Counter Game), but he has not found any support among tournament players." --Reuben Fine, 1938.
   Sep-06-19 A Muzychuk vs Bosboom-Lanchava, 2001 (replies)
Parachessus: <My favorite has to be 26...Be2! with a skewer of rook and queen.> Actually, it's a pin, a relative pin to be precise.
   Sep-05-19 Nigel Short
Parachessus: <HeMateMe> LOL!
   Aug-27-19 Pal Benko (replies)
Parachessus: Very sad news, we lose yet another of the few remaining chess greats of the so-called "Silent Generation" (born 1925-1945). He's moved beyond life's endgame but is now one of Caissa's immortals.
   Aug-25-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Parachessus: Time to adapt a rule from the variant known as "Grand Chess" and allow pawns to optionally promote on the next to the last ranks and/or perhaps add the power to move as a knight to the queen, making it R+B+N. OR have Artificial Intelligence redesign the game.
