unferth: <what complicated matters is that Kobe regarded Dwight Howard with complete scorn, and rightfully so. He's a clown, and the whole NBA feels that way. He doesn't play hard, he doesn't improve, he doesn't know how to adjust, sacrifice and work.> oh, Howard's a clown, for sure, ...

unferth: I'd be curious to see how the numbers would change if they began analysis with move 16 (or even later) to eliminate bias from advances in opening prep, as this study did:
   Jan-10-17 W van Lankveld vs Van der Wiel, 2000 (replies)
unferth: must've been infuriating for white to set up a seemingly unstoppable mate vs. a GM only to find that his own king is underdressed.
   Dec-28-16 F Hedke vs J Brenninkmeijer, 1996
unferth: <YouRang> ah, well spotted. thanks!

unferth: that's the exhibition I was talking about. I'll give him some slack, but that's sure not the delivery of a former prospect...
   Nov-17-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
unferth: my guess is Karjakin will come to regret this. Magnus will stifle any initiative and convert that pawn on move 80.

unferth: <Lighthorse: <alfilbueno: Bc5 or not Bc5...> Nice trap after 47...Bc5 with 48. Nc6 and if 48...Rxb3 then 49.Nd8+> elegantly brutal.
   Nov-01-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
unferth: I've always assumed that rule was motivated by potential time-claim scenarios--you don't want someone claiming that move 40 should count because it's on his scoresheet--and by the possibility that recorded unplayed moves could be used as visual/mental aids.
