i live with my wife in hampshire, england... i love the game, but sadly my standard of play is highly erratic! ... (also i get much frowned upon for my allegiance to descriptive notation! - which has always seemed to me to be utterly intuitive) Full Member

   diagonalley has kibitzed 1008 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-03-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
diagonalley: ... this is no traditional monday puzzle... sadly, CG has exhibited little sign that it is likely to recover (within a reasonable time-frame) from the tragic loss of daniel. ho hum... time to move on :-(
   Sep-01-18 E Cordova vs A Ipatov, 2017 (replies)
diagonalley: <Domdaniel> ... my reaction exactly
   Aug-09-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
diagonalley: i'm afraid that the absence of any updates/announcements from CG does not augur well for the site... hopefully there is still time for someone to step in and get a grip ... otherwise the situation could become terminal
   Aug-08-18 W So vs V Durarbayli, 2015 (replies)
diagonalley: the daily puzzle feature is quite clearly adrift... and whilst the recent tragic loss is fully acknowledged, CG should now let us punters know what the plan is for "resumption of normal service" ... in order that we can have a reasonable expectation
   Aug-06-18 K Rohonyan vs A L'Ami, 2008 (replies)
diagonalley: looking back over these posts it would appear that master owen is alive (if not well) ... but thankfully CG offers the 'ignore user' option, which <diagonalley> successfully deployed against master owen - perhaps his real name is bates(?) - many moons ago...
   Jul-31-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
diagonalley: mate in umpteen moves (whether or not the sac is accepted)!!! ... somebody at chessgames needs to be advised which day of the week it is
   Jul-30-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
diagonalley: excellent puzzle... (but for novices? ... hardly)
   Jul-29-18 Topalov vs S Zhigalko, 2008 (replies)
diagonalley: very pleasing (and completely sane) breakthrough! ... roll on monday :-)
   Jul-28-18 B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017 (replies)
diagonalley: i was blinded by the temptation to start the exchange with the knight on KR4... DOH!
   Jul-26-18 A Firouzja vs E Cordova, 2017 (replies)
diagonalley: wow!... difficult... <diagonalley>: nul points :-(
