ughaibu: Topalov? Tolapov? Who the hell is he? If I never even heard of the guy, I guess his reputation is unevaluable.
 
   Jun-26-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
 
ughaibu: Archimedes, there's a good candidate for smartest person in history. He didn't rate theism or atheism worth a mention in any of his extant works, as far as I recall.
 
   Jun-25-15 Viktor Korchnoi
 
ughaibu: My comment above involved mistaking his white draws and losses. This morning's guess is that the white result is 6.7% higher. I wonder how his performance varied, black vs. white, in other openings. Who wants to do a few?
 
   Jun-25-15 Korchnoi vs V Milov, 1994
 
ughaibu: Maybe the variation took Korchnoi's name because of how he played it as black!
 
   Jun-23-15 Louis F Stumpers (replies)
 
ughaibu: Any theories as to why "asparagus" is uncountable?
 
   Jun-22-15 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1937
 
ughaibu: Here's a second attempt at the Steinitz link: Steinitz - Zukertort World Championship Match (1886)
 
   Jun-11-15 Alekhine vs Brooklyn College, 1932
 
ughaibu: How about 31... Kf8, 32.Qh6 Kf7, 33.Ne5 Qe5, 34.Re5 Nf3, etc?
 
   May-23-15 Gerald Abrahams (replies)
 
ughaibu: Abrahams wrote of Alekhine that he often wrote a book "post prandially and sans voir". Do you think he intended that as a euphemism for 'blind drunk'?

ughaibu: I'm at the disadvantage of never having heard of Dorothy or Katarina, sad to say.
 
   Apr-24-15 AVRO (1938) (replies)
 
ughaibu: Capablanca's +8 at New York 1927 was a 70% performance, Lasker's +6 in the final at Saint Petersburg 1914 was an 87% performance. I think "+" scores are pretty meaningless, as they disregard the total number of games. About AVRO 1938, the winners got just over 60%, compare that with
