Petrosianic: <Tomlinsky>: <Pointing out observation of international law is always good for a laugh around here. The joke that just keeps on giving.> If you don't care about it, then you don't. But I bet you would at least pretend to if it were a law you liked. When the UN throws
   Apr-18-14 Hort vs Portisch, 1973
Petrosianic: <This is one of their only competitive games against each other.> Not sure what you mean by this. There are nearly 40 games between them in the database.
   Apr-18-14 Reshevsky vs Karpov, 1976 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Mudphudder>: <It must have been this year that started the era of dispicable grandmaster draws that continues on today!> This is a GM draw. Therefore this is one of the first GM draws. Nope, that argument doesn't make a lick of sense. You're obviously not ...
   Apr-18-14 Spassky vs Larsen, 1970 (replies)
Petrosianic: Come to think of it, Reshevsky beat Lasker with Black. So, that's at least 4, which beats Larsen's 3.
   Apr-18-14 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Petrosianic: As it happens, Benko did a LOT better than in 1959. Astoundingly well, in fact.
   Apr-18-14 Amir Faiz Amirul (replies)
Petrosianic: Is that comma supposed to be there, or not? Removing it completely reverses the meaning of the sentence.
   Apr-17-14 Dragoljub Janosevic (replies)
Petrosianic: <Jul-08-11 brankat: R.I.P. GM Janosevic. Jul-08-13 brankat: The same once again, Dragoljub.> So, what gives? Were you mad at him in 2012?
   Apr-17-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Petrosianic: A Fischergradoid, of course. Fischergrad is a protest against Repino, by the way. We once noticed that Botvinnik was born in a Finnish town called Kuokkala, or something, and that the town was later named Repino after a famous artist that was born there. We thought it was a ...
   Apr-17-14 Paul Morphy (replies)
Petrosianic: Harrwitz and Staunton are two good guesses. Alexander Cockburn, formerly of "The Nation", would be another. He did a real hit piece on Morphy in his book, "Idle Passion: Chess and the Dance of Death", which did a hit on chess itself. Even though Cockburn had no training in ...
   Apr-17-14 Spielmann vs Reti, 1923 (replies)
Petrosianic: Yes, well Spielmann's nickname may have been a little premature. Bronstein and Spassky could certainly be considered "Knights of the King's Gambit".
