   Oct-21-14 Biographer Bistro (replies) Stonehenge, I think you know not what you ask. On the face of it the Guaymallen PanAM-chJ U10 Absoluto (2001) doesn't seem like an important tournament, but just look at some of the participants. Fabiano Caruana, Robert Hess, Emilio Cordova are all now GMs. And there are ...

   Oct-13-14 Chessgames Bookie chessforum (replies) <I counted 5 handles, all created in September or October that have never kibitzed and only play the bookie game.> I can speculate which users you mean, but they probably followed the "back in business" banner on the homepage. A few people visit chessgames not to ...

  notyetagm: Millionaire Chess (2014)

<torrefan: Fanatics are never inconsequential. Even just one of them can blow up an entire village.

<<<Jim Bartle: That's your response, that kibitzers on the So page might blow up a village?>>>>


This has *got* to be the <CHESSGAMES.COM 2014 KIBITZ OF THE YEAR>.

  WannaBe: Java 8 Update 25 is out.

Win8.1 Pro with 32-bit IE verified with Chess Viewer Delux.

Win7 Ultimate with 64-bit IE verified, too. With CVD.

The neat thing with this version of installer, it will ask you to remove the old version. And not let it stay on your hard drive.

Premium Chessgames Member OK, have at it: Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014). Only 3 weeks away!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: We should also have a bookie bet on how many pages there will be before the first move of the match.

And we can also have another bookie bet on how many posts will be deleted by admin on that forum page, too.

  Tabanus: <CG> Can you use this picture of Antonio Angel Medina Garcia? It's pretty good, and from Spanish Ch in Madrid 1944:

Premium Chessgames Member Tabanus: yes that's an excellent photo, could you provide any more information about it? Could I see the link to the page that contains that graphic?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <CG> Took me 10 minutes to find it again! It's from this page:

Main site:, whatever that is :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <CG> I think it's a great picture. Btw, the games from Mexico 1932 are not by him but by <Joaquin Medina Zavalía>, who is not in the database yet.
Oct-18-14  Yopo: Please, don't forget the Continental of Americas 2014!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Thanh Phan: No problems about being able to view a game despite receiving the most current Java update, something must be working, a slight bonus should count for something in these odd days of the internet

  MarkFinan: Did I have a post deleted by the admins from <TheFous>'s forum?
Premium Chessgames Member Yes Mark, it was removed yesterday, along with the post that you quoted verbatim, for plainly obvious reasons.

  MarkFinan: < Yes Mark, it was removed yesterday, along with the post that you quoted verbatim, for plainly obvious reasons.>

Yes. A post in a friends forum quoting a star wars film about no one in particular must be 100x worse than posts about male rape, people accusing other people of being a druggie, abortion clinic bombs, and people admitting they stalk someone, in someone else's forum!? Posts that are still there!

I'll never understand this place.

Premium Chessgames Member Mark, we must be talking about different posts. The ones that were deleted most certainly were about a member in particular, referred to by an offensive and obscene nickname.

If you have anything more to say about this matter please email us at

Premium Chessgames Member
  MarkFinan: I think I've just realised. Fair enough, but I honestly didn't think the guy would be that offended. Sorry.
Oct-19-14  Yopo: America's Continental

Round 2 will be running today

Yesterday, two curious results_
Gms Kaidanov and Mekhitarian
