   Jan-06-19 Reti vs Vidmar, 1926
scutigera: Actually patting him on the head? That sounds implausible. Here's Andy Soltis (admittedly not the surest reference): [DIAGRAM] "White has just played 31.Qe6 and, although a pawn down, appears to have dominating pieces and winning threats, such as a pending sacrifice on f5. 'I ...
   Dec-04-18 Windhorst vs K Shoup, 1985 (replies)
scutigera: <Offramp>:My grandmother was a Westerner (from Montana) and she used it all the time. I picked it up from her and am doing my best to spread the infection along the West Coast; it's readily comprehended, I find, and I have heard others use it more often than "almost never". ...
   Dec-03-18 W Pollock vs Allies, 1893
scutigera: Pollock was definitely no fish.
   Nov-29-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
scutigera: Vladimir Zukhar: By past standards even the classical games are rapid. The Capablanca-Alekhine match allotted 150 minutes for the first forty moves, and also for all subsequent groups of forty; Alekhine spent four hours and two minutes on game 28, and in game 11 Capablanca spent ...
   Oct-28-18 B Assaubayeva vs S Al Amri, 2018
scutigera: That's one sharp little girl pushing the white pieces. I'll be watching her career.

scutigera: Which one do you mean? I like "A Vaginal Ear Fan", personally.
   Oct-25-18 L Piasetski vs Semen Lomasov, 2018
scutigera: One day, transliterators will start writing the Russian name "Семен" (Simon) the way it's pronounced ("Semyon", last syllable stressed), rather than just going down the "this letter = that letter" table for Cyrillic. I'm not holding my breath, though.
   Oct-25-18 A Makarov vs T Heinrich, 1998
scutigera: I second the motion.
   Oct-15-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
scutigera: "St. Fina, also known as Seraphina, was born Fina dei Ciardi, in Gimignano, a village in Tuscany, Italy in 1238. She was the daughter of the Imperiera, a declining noble family. She lived all her life in [a] humble house located in the historic center of the famous “city of ...
   Aug-05-18 I Stohl vs R Kuczynski, 1993 (replies)
scutigera: Probably. I've heard the two terms used as synonyms before.
