oblivion95: Here is a fun Gothmog game. Watch the opponent's King wander around, while its protectors sit idly by. The exchange sacrifice at move 17 (made when White is already 2 pawns down in material) is completely speculative, drawing the Black King to the 4th rank. That's a very ...

oblivion95: You can play FischeRandom at FICS ( http://www.freechess.org ) with the "fr" variant designation. I played there and everybody who tried it with me loved the excitement. It's very unpredictable, but the better player usually wins, as in the old days. I play it with my friends at ...

oblivion95: This is the game after the credits in the 1963 Bond film, From Russia With Love. (The identities of the players were changed for the film.)
