   Apr-06-09 N Ibraev vs S Hetul, 2009 (replies)
 
Toadspring: Shah was 9 years old when he won this game against GM Ibraev. That's impressive.
 
   Apr-06-09 Igor Kurnosov (replies)
 
Toadspring: Now that Kurnosov's semi-famous he deserves a photograph on this page!

Toadspring: Players tend to fade a little when they get in their 130's.
 
   Jan-03-09 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1996 (replies)
 
Toadspring: Does anyone know who resigned for Deep Blue? Did the computer realize it was hopeless or did someone else step in and resign for it? Just curious.
 
   Dec-22-08 Fedorowicz vs E B Meyer, 1978 (replies)
 
Toadspring: I figured it out. Under promoting to a rook or bishop may help avoid stalemates in certain games. I didn't think of that earlier.
 
   Dec-22-08 S Boden vs Owen, 1856 (replies)
 
Toadspring: 1. d3 is The Mieses Opening It is named after the German-British grandmaster Jacques Mieses. Seems kinda passive, huh?
 
   Dec-19-08 Grob vs NN, 1966 (replies)
 
Toadspring: NN wasn't a Grandmaster... I'm guessing here. This is a perfect example of how 1 g4, usually considered an inferior first move, can knock out an unsuspecting (and over matched) opponent.
 
   Dec-19-08 Grob vs Gahwiller, 1966 (replies)
 
Toadspring: 19...Ne6; why? I guess you have to be pretty over matched to lose a correspondence match against the Grob in any case.
