|Jan-29-06|| ||Ziggurat: This Swedish player, who was unknown to me before today, is performing far above his rating (a "mere" 2383) so far in the Gibraltar Chess Congress. So far, he has beaten Spraggett and drawn with Sutovsky and Kobalia.|

|Mar-08-07|| ||MoonlitKnight: Aaberg is an IM on the rise, but his chess career is probably somewhat hindered by his career as a professional poker player.|
|Nov-04-07|| ||wwall: I don't think he is an IM. FIDE shows that he has no title and rated 2388 (with a peak of 2408).|

The rook moves any number of vacant squares along rows or columns (forward, backward, left or right). It also is involved when castling.
The bishop moves any number of vacant squares diagonally. Consequently a bishop stays on squares of the same color throughout a game.
The queen moves any number of vacant squares in any direction along a row, column, or diagonal.
The king moves only one vacant square in any direction. It can also castle in conjunction with a rook.
The knight moves to a vacant square in an "L"-shape (two spaces forward, backward, left, or right and one space perpendicular to it). The knight can jump over other pieces when moving.
The pawn can only move forward one space, or optionally two spaces when on its starting square, in a straight line away from the player. When there is an enemy piece one square diagonally from the pawn (either left or right), then the pawn may capture that piece. A pawn can perform a special type of capture of an enemy pawn called en passant.

|Dec-01-08|| ||whiteshark: Do you know what Dalai Lama responded when he was asked what he thought about people who spoke to him as “His Holiness The Dalai Lama”?|
|Dec-19-08|| ||ketchuplover: No. Please tell us. thank you.|
|Dec-19-08|| ||whiteshark: He laughed warmly.
He didn’t make a big note about the title he had. Surely, others did - but when he spoke to others he concentrated on the “being nice” rather “being important”. He left titles away, and concentrated on relevant issues.
Can you see what a big difference it makes in being respected? If he would keep saying and mentioning how holy he is, it might make him just another (religious) “leader” in the world.

|Jan-07-15|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <Perdido> There is currently no way of getting to a page 2; if you want different search results, you'll have to try a different search. (For instance, if you're searching for Evans Gambit games and aren't happy with page 1, and page 1 covers the period 1850-1881, try looking for Evans games from 1882 or later.)|
Alternatively, just play some of the fifty games offered; the search is limited to games you haven't played yet, so if you play through all or some of the original search results, new results will replace them. Eventually, you'll get all the results that would originally have been on page 2 :)
