   Jul-24-16 Chessgames Bookie chessforum (replies) Hi folks, <Chnebelgrind> is the official winner. This is the point where we go over log files to make sure everything is on the up-and-up. I'll make a post tomorrow to that effect, and will hopefully be able to give a start-date for the next leg.

   Jul-22-16 Biographer Bistro (replies) So now I'm working on two important improvements: 1. A way to see previous versions of player/tournament articles. (The copies are actually there; I just need to let the editors spy at the data.) 2. A way to see what the most recent changes were, when they took place, and ...
   Jul-21-16 Wei Yi vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies) Looks kind of drawish as well, but I have a rule of thumb: As long as there are queens minor pieces, there is room for shenanigans.
   Jul-21-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies) Any other requests?
   Jul-20-16 Bilbao (2016) (replies) Everybody is invited to join us watch Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 live tomorrow morning at 10:00am USA/Eastern, the last time these two will play before they fight for the crown in November.
   Jul-12-16 Phony Benoni chessforum (replies) Psst.. I had misgivings about today's GOTD right after midnight ( Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820 , "Able was I") especially now that we're virtually certain that it was not played by Napoleon. So I switched it. Thx.
   Jul-03-16 E de Groote vs D Arutinian, 2009 (replies) <Kt going the wrong way> Our computers show both knight sacs as winning, with 20...Nfxd5 being slightly more accurate.
   Jun-05-16 A Pomar Salamanca vs E Palacios, 1964 (replies) I just had a late night chat with User: Kev to make sure that this puzzle is correct as 16...?

Premium Chessgames Member <the Game of the Day has not yet changed.> Oh I hate it when that happens. It's always a typo where I forgot to remove the "vs" during the cut and paste operation.
Jul-20-16  Makavelli II: <Finally he asks, "Why doesn't this guy just go to or something?"

I didn't have an answer for that one.>

I've got a brilliant answer! Maybe Kevin likes 99% of this site and 99% of the site like him. Maybe it's just one or two (yeah let's say two) of your members that annoy Kevin and the majority of the site. Why does Kevin follow "Dave's" rules to the letter, and then when Dave ignores Kevin, Kevin probably gets a little annoyed and deliberately goes out of his way to earn 24 hrs probation and dishes out his own justice. Dave's too much of a coward to do it himself, Smh. Maybe Dave needs to look into things a little further and he'll probably see why Kevin gets annoyed? Maybe Dave should email Kevin and ask to see what Neil's been getting up to? I know Kevin and he isn't going to send you irrefutable proof of what's been going on unless Dave asks him. Maybe Kevin's a smart guy who isn't going to fire all his bullets at once. Maybe Dave's not very intelligent even though he had a better education than Kevin? Maybe Kevin feels hurt that "Trevor" would accuse him of threatening Trevor's pet hamster and gerbils? Maybe "BJ Silverstein" who's mia, the BEST!!!!! gunslinger in the west was right about certain people? Or maybe Kevin is just so pissed off with Dave that whenever Dave contacts him he's very rude towards him? Maybe Dave should read Trevor's forum or at the very least ask Trevor who's been trying to hurt his gerbil and hamsters? Maybe Trevor's got nudes of Dave and he's bribing him?! Maybe Neil's just projecting his miserable life onto the site causing more problems than anyone? Maybe Dave's lost money by being lazy and not responding to a whistle blow? Maybe Neil and Trevor are 2 dumb assses and even though Dave knows what's going on behind the scenes he hasn't been truthful? Maybe Kevin could go on forever? Maybe "Ishmael" aka "Bob" is only here to talk his religion? Maybe Kevin's straying off topic a little? Maybe Kevin can prove <everything> he says? Maybe Dave's..... I can't be bothered.

You know I am not going to drop this Mr "Friar!?" so I, me Kevin have lost all respect for you even though I could prove to Trevor and Neil <exactly> what you've said about them? Maybe Trevor's gonna end up working in McDonald's over the gerbil and hamster allegations?

Or maybe, Just maybe.. Kevin will <never> kiss Dave's backside like Trevor and Neil do!

No more emails from you "Dave". We do this publicly from now on!

Now watch Neil blow the whistle and come here talking in broken English whilst Trevor, the true undefeated <over heavyweight champ of ceegee> email you telling you to trust him.... he's a vet! LOL.

See you in 24 ;)

Jul-20-16  thegoodanarchist: Maybe Bob at the pet store sold Trevor a mouse but told Trevor it was a gerbil. Maybe Dave spilled the news to Trevor, but Bob skipped town before Trevor could get his refund, and that's why Trevor is angry, and there are no other gerbil stores in Trevor's area.

That's what I think happened...

Jul-20-16  thegoodanarchist: Or else there IS another gerbil store, but it is owned by Kevin and Neil and they fed the gerbils rat poison by accident and so they have no gerbils to sell, and the SPCA got news of it and are going to the district attorney to file charges and the whole town is gerbil-free and the children are crying and all hell breaks loose

or maybe you could take a page from your esteemed lifemaster and select to view the site as <"view friends kibitz only">>

How does one do this?

Jul-20-16  Keyser Soze: <wannabe> Works well on chrome? Or we have to go to all that tutorial?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Keyser Soze> I think Chrome have completely disabled/abandoned Java.

I still prefer IE (Yes, even on Win10) over Edge, because Edge also don't do Java.

Don't use Firefox, because the text/font just looks bad. Awful! Ugh.

Jul-20-16  Keyser Soze: 99% of the site still wonder why Kevin instead of insisting on that endless whining don't use the ignore function. Maybe because Kevin likes hurting people and want all people who annoys him expelled from the site. (or from the world)

Dave "the coward" runs a business and don't have much time for playing shrink and decided for obvious reasons not comply to that and Kevin has been miserable since them especially because no friend came to help/rescue him as much he looks himself as a very popular bloke. Dave, "the coward " insists he should go to chessbomb or instead.

Nils is having fun on his fave beach and could care less for the childish-drama and threats as Trevor is laughing out loud right now listen his fave Madonna's tracks. ;o)

Jul-20-16  Keyser Soze: <I still prefer IE (Yes, even on Win10) over Edge, because Edge also don't do Java.>

Yeah I might do that, thanks. IE improved <a lot> on last few years. I will give a new shot.

Jul-20-16  Makavelli II: <Dave, "the coward " insists he should go to chessbomb or instead.>

"Dave" the coward called you an "obsessive predictable stalker".

But that's none of my business.


Jul-20-16  Makavelli II: <<Now watch Neil blow the whistle and come here talking in broken English>>

And maybe Kevin and Dave were both 100% on the money, lol. Neil! Behave. This is your MO (And Dave is well aware). Come, antagonise, blow whistle, pretend he has an interest in chess for 2 days even though he can't play to save his life, go talks to Trevor, repeats, repeats, repeats. Behave Neil. If only the bad people were here LOL.

Btw. Kevin says he wants his photographs back. Is Neil denying he has them or should I ask Kevin to prove it???

  User not found: I'm starting to like Kevin, haha :)

From now on. Call me "Kevin Fuhkwa". Classic English Christian name. Probably a Japanese surname.

The Japanese are known for their hospitality. But annoy you of those little fellas... Watchha! :)

  User not found: I did say above.. No more emails from you we do this publicly. I've responded but I'll answer you publicly too.

No I won't blow the whistle on a certain person. At least not for the time being.

Yes. I am Makavelli. And I have another handle I've only ever used for chess too.

Daniel.. If you're too much of a coward to ask tpstar.. "Hey Tony. That's a very very serious allegation you made about "Kevin". Can I see proof please?" then I'll do what I want, when I want, how I want and you won't do a daymn thing about it. I personally know that 3 people here refuse to buy a premium membership because of <tpstar>. You can now make that 4 because as you well know I was about to buy Jim Bartle one. That's only about $100 but it's because you're a coward and tpstars a <criminal liar>. I've reported him to the AMA. I won't stop until he's working in McDonald's, a place where he can fill his big belly. I personally know that 2 people here are too afraid to stand up for me when I'm serving a suspension because, and I quote one person. "What if N**o stalks me and does to me what he's done to you for the last 3 or 4 years because he knows my real name too!!". So now your laziness has caused you another problem.

All you had to do was delete a post and ask a question. Btw Kevin's not stupid.

Kind regards, Kevin from the other chess site that's more successful. :)

Premium Chessgames Member <If you're too much of a coward to ask tpstar.. "Hey Tony. That's a very very serious allegation you made about "Kevin". Can I see proof please?">

First, as I will explain, cowardice does not enter into this equation. Also, know that I fully understand your basis for complaint.

Libel is not against our posting guidelines, for well deliberated reasons. Simply put, we are not in a position to fact check people's posts. Therefore we cannot ever make a policy which somehow hinges on the truth or falsehood of a post, which is your implication above. "Can I see proof please?" soon turns into "Is this truly proof?" and a giant debate commences. The bottom line is that only a court of law can declare material libelous.

I considered a very draconian rule, that members are basically not allowed to talk about other members. (After all, it might be a lie, and we can't have that!) The more you think about it, the more preposterous it becomes.

<No more emails from you "Dave". We do this publicly from now on!> Then we won't do it at all. But as you see above, I'm happy to discuss general policies.

  morfishine: At the recent Bilbao tournament, the final score is wrong. Both Nakamura and Karjakin had 9 draws, not 10. One of their individual games was counted twice.

Bilbao (2016)


Jul-24-16  sonia91: The <17th Karpov International Tournament> is underway in Poikovsky, Russia. It's a 10-player round-robin event with three 2700+ players (Dmitry Andreikin, Radoslaw Wojtaszek, Dmitry Jakovenko) and and seven former 2700 players (Anton Korobov, Emil Sutovsky, Ilia Smirin, Maxim Matlakov, Igor Kovalenko, Viktor Bologan, Alexander Motylev).
