|Aug-06-11|| ||whiteshark: "Certainly one of the most enigmatic figures in the chess scene, however, took a late notice of him - and the proof that it's certainly better people early introduce to chess, to direct their destructive instincts in a reasonably harmless channels - so it possible only when (wannabe) pro-GM terrorizing their environment with excessive demands, instead of heavier crime.|
He became famous course through consistent use of the <Burma-effect>, which you should probably tell him to honor <Bloodgood effect>: the knowledge that all the current rating systems are prone to bias due largely isolated sub-communities. In Bloodgood case you can not even blame him, because he was only forced to play against his fellow inmates ...
If by setting the label should not (rare enough, the deficit is indeed at all on the subject): Perhaps one could even some in memory of his legendary USCF rating of 2702 that professionals who travel through the crossing in the advanced world-class have now reached <Bloodgood status>? Sounds somehow better than ever trite messages about new "Super-GMs" - if you have not can not be entirely."

|Aug-08-11|| ||rogl: Maybe Bloodgood and Hitler are analysing the Grob together somewhere http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP3J....|
|Jul-02-12|| ||arthurp: Unless Claude had white all the time ,what did he play against 1.e4.
I'm talking about the date of 1990 and
|Jul-14-12|| ||waustad: Bloodgood would be 75 today.|
|Aug-25-12|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: I wonder if chess is popular in Hell.|
|Sep-04-12|| ||Pulpofeira: Menudo pájaro...|
|Jan-18-13|| ||Mudphudder: Am I the only one who is wondering why he played white in almost all of this games on this site???|
|Apr-06-13|| ||andrewjsacks: You might want to look up my article on him, published a couple of years ago online at www.angiesdiary.com|
The title is something like "Claude Bloodgood: Chess Werewolf."
Also, of course, there is an enlightening Wiki page on him.
|Jul-14-13|| ||DoctorD: The specific URL is : http://angiesdiary.com/articles/cla....|
I must say that I did not like the article. I found the opening tenuous, and the facts contained therein later do not jibe with my own recollection of events, which include the fact that it was Bloodgood who reported this rating inflation to the USCF (the report at Wikipedia seems more honest and unbiased).
In fact I find it much more interesting that it is possible that the unsavory character Bloodgood acted morally in chess matters.
I am not making this critique out of mean-spiritedness and I bet you are normally quite a talented writer. But I just couldn't like this one.
|Aug-06-13|| ||GumboGambit: According to Rybka, he should have kept more distance from his relatives. Also, anger management training would have been a sound move.|
|Aug-06-13|| ||perfidious: If only Rybka and anger management training had existed back in 1969.|
Trouble is, he would have been forced to play in the real world and we would have been deprived of another 2700 player.
Everything in life is a tradeoff, I suppose.
|Nov-08-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Bloodgood would probably have lost a match to Norman Tweed Whitaker, but there would have been a captive audience.|
|Sep-03-14|| ||posoo: dis man kind of looks like my father, da Posoo Sr.!|
|Jan-18-15|| ||Conrad93: Fair to say, killing his mother was the best career move he ever made.|
|Jan-18-15|| ||john barleycorn: His mother called him "curly Sue"|
|Jan-18-15|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <Conrad93: Fair to say, killing his mother was the best career move he ever made.>|
Fair to say not having an abortion was the worst life decision your mother ever made.
|Jan-20-15|| ||Conrad93: Wyatt, are you normally such a low-life, or is your life so pathetic that you have to insult stranger online?|
Get a life, loser.
|Jan-20-15|| ||Conrad93: Insulting a stranger over chess of all things...|
|Jan-20-15|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: I'm not insulting you over chess. I'm insulting you over being the most insufferably obnoxious autist on this otherwise great forum.|
|Jan-20-15|| ||Conrad93: Wyatt, only an austistic individual would insult a random stranger online over a few comments. Stop being pathetic and get off the internet.|
Telling someone they should get aborted is not a place even I would dare go.
You're a loser and probably suck at chess to boot. Not a good mix.
|Jan-25-15|| ||offramp: Even if he'd been paroled for the matricide he'd have been rejailed for the ratings fraud.|
|Jan-25-15|| ||OhioChessFan: Or perhaps regaled.|
|Jan-25-15|| ||FSR: Claude has the highest winning percentage this side of Prince Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia.|
|Jan-25-15|| ||tpstar: Also Gioachino Greco|
Bloodgood wins the Creepiest Picture hands down.
|Jan-27-15|| ||offramp: His middle name is a nickname given to him by Father Seamus Mulcahy. |
It is based on the noise he was expected to make in the electric chair.
