   Dec-01-17 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
mucher1: It's crazy how many nicknames this guy have had, at least among the US live commentators: Carijuana, Don Fabiano, Fabi ... I can't even decide which is the more cringeworthy of the lot.
   Sep-09-17 Nakamura vs L Bruzon Batista, 2017
   Jun-23-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
mucher1: It annoys the heck out of me that one of the live commentators (Yasser) insists on calling one of the players Fabi Carijuana (rhymes with marijuana). What's wrong with using the guy's real name?
   May-01-16 Yasser Seirawan (replies)
mucher1: I'd wish someone would tell Seirawan not to constantly make fun of Caruana's name. The 'Don Fabi' moniker got old really fast, and 'Caryuana' is just plain wrong.

mucher1: Perhaps young Tari will also join the club in a few years. How I miss the old days when Denmark dominated Norway in everything except fjords and skiing.
   Sep-29-15 G Barcza vs Larsen, 1958
mucher1: Yeah, but Rg6 is unpleasant.
   Sep-16-15 Wei Yi (replies)
mucher1: <cro777: Sergey Kuzmin is an experienced grandmaster and the former coach of Anatoly Karpov and Alexander Morozovich.> You obviously mean Alexey (not Sergey) who was a second for Karpov in at least one of the matches against Kasparov. But did he also coach him?
   Jun-15-14 Peter Heine Nielsen (replies)
mucher1: This guy reached 2700 and was a pretty active tournament player up until 2011/12, but nowadays seems to have retired from competitive chess (except for the occasional Bundesliga match). Perhaps it pays better to train #1 than to be #50-100, but still...
   May-05-14 T Sage vs M Zelkind, 1984 (replies)
mucher1: I like Once's solution! But I'd definitely prefer the Q sac to the R ditto (not so much because it's more spectacular, but because the mate with the R is cleaner).
   Feb-14-14 Tkachiev vs Ivanchuk, 2009 (replies)
mucher1: I remember the song, but am not sure I really understand the pun!? Perhaps I'm just not hip to the most current lingo...
