Diocletian: <MissScarlett: Dr. Alekhine is racist, Dr. Lasker is racist, Dr. Seuss is racist....wouldn't it be be quicker just to name those who aren't racist?> Perhaps you are referring to Jesus Christ, who may not have been a racist, but was certainly a patzer and, some say an ...

Diocletian: It is nice to have witty, mysterious cronies here. Thank you for your friendly greetings.You are welcome to look at the collections of my favorite and most hated games.
   Jan-29-18 Nona Gaprindashvili
Diocletian: Well, it's not her birthday. She has game of the day, not player of the day. So what? It's still a good day.

Diocletian: His were some of my first books as a child, and I suppose that is the case for most of us. I have heard him described as the nerd's nerd. I keep his picture on my desktop to remind me to stay home, play chess, collect stamps, study rocks and minerals, collect coins and stay out ...
   Dec-20-17 Shabalov vs I Naumkin, 1987 (replies)
Diocletian: I also chose 28. Nxh6. When I looked ahead to the answer 28. Rxh6 I wondered what might be wrong with my move. Oh! 28...Qxh4 killing the white rook might be the trouble. However, I did not study the matter further as I am playing blitz today! Hope this helps!

Diocletian: [DIAGRAM] Thank you, Mr. barleycorn, for your interest. From this position the last three moves were: 39. Nge5 Rb8 40. Ng5+ Kf6 41. Rf7# This was played at with the computer set at level 4 - supposedly rated 1600, but I think it is weaker than that.
   Jun-10-17 Hort vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
Diocletian: I will add this game to my favorites list. I got the first move 16.BxN with the same mating idea in mind: double the pawns and catch the king, but I learned a lot from Hort's masterful execution of the plan. Once the king is exposed, clearly, I knew as well, White needs a rook to
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
Diocletian: A good puzzle that I admit to finding harder than "easy" but that gives way to the great principle,'see-a-check-give-a-check," and respecting the powerful pawn. Now the knight sac 12. Ne5 - is it really sound? Is there an equally simple principle here, or must I calculate ...
   Dec-12-16 Mayet vs Harrwitz, 1848 (replies)
Diocletian: Nostalgia Day. Harrwitz...Anderssen, Morphy, Loewenthal, Capt Evans....Old games like this remind me of old books, great players of a swashbuckling era, descriptive notation and my boyhood before a chess board and pieces long ago.
   Dec-08-16 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990 (replies)
Diocletian: I am often impatient with puns on players' names, but this one has Klass.
