unferth: Kobe couldn't carry the Lakers by himself, either; between the departure of Shaq & the arrival of Pau, they wallowed in mediocrity too. Phil might want to hang onto Anthony as the superstar scorer/shot creator to be surrounded by the cast he assembles--or not. I sure can't say, but ...

unferth: it's "no" to a wager that doesn't reflect my views ... is it also "no" to one that does reflect yours?
   Mar-26-14 Nezhmetdinov vs Krogius, 1965 (replies)
unferth: <olinart: I think black has a nice counter and gave up too soon. From the position at the end of the game 45:Bb1xe4 .. Bxe4 Qxe4 Qe3 Qxf5+ Kg8 g3-g4 B-d4 Black has a winning attack and White will at least have to give back material.> 48 Rg2 (not g3-g4) stops black's ...

unferth: 38 Kg5 isn't forced. I think it's more likely that Hanken resigned because either Kf4 or Kg5 allows a knight check that picks up the bishop via discovery, while Kh4 runs into Be7#.

unferth: <FSR> that must be his FIDE rating:

unferth: <badest: <peddagunnu: Chess is now turning into tennis... I like to see shot making and winners in tennis, not unforced errors. I much prefer brilliances that take your breath away in chess than the trench warfare that we have now.> Unfortunately my friend, this is the ...
