   Nov-23-14 Biographer Bistro (replies) <Karpova> et al: <The info is certainly enough to prejudge, but not always sufficient to judge.> I understand your point (even without the spine-chilling Kubrick scene). This certainly isn't about singling anybody out. If I made a mistake on a biography and ...
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies) Thanks to everybody for participating in our live coverage of the 2014 World Chess Championship, and congratulations to Magnus Carlsen .
   Nov-23-14 chessforum (replies) <GOTD has not changed for today.> Oops! Thanks Phony. <Penguincw> I don't know, that sounds like a pretty crazy coincidence. I guess it might happen if two people think of a clue that solves to the first 7 digits of pi, or something like that. (That would take you
   Nov-19-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies) Please keep the discussion on this page relevant to the game.
   Nov-15-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies) <Stonehenge> Thanks, we just put it in: E Kuhl vs Z Kasprzyk, 2014 .
   Nov-11-14 Chessgames Bookie chessforum (replies) In days of misspent youth, I've been to a few racetracks and have seen situations where the winning trifecta/superfecta had no money on it. It's against state gambling regulations to retain more than a certain percentage of the bettors' money, so they resort to a 2-out-of-3 ...
   Nov-08-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies) Fun fact: the top countries viewing this game right now, in order of visitor count: India, United States, Russia, United Kingdom, Philippines, Turkey, Germany, Indonesia, France, Netherlands, Brazil, Spain, Israel, Canada, and (of course) Norway. Welcome to all our new ...
   Nov-07-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies) Everybody is invited to come join us for the live broadcast and discussion the WCC. The first game ( Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 ) starts tomorrow at 7:00am USA/Eastern time.
   Nov-02-14 Jobava vs Mamedyarov, 2014 (replies) Congratulations to Dmitry Andreikin for winning the Tashkent Grand Prix with 7/11. We'll be broadcasting more chess soon. Thanks for coming!
   Nov-02-14 D Andreikin vs A Giri, 2014 (replies) This is the final round, but we're entirely unclear on when it starts. The official site says "game starts one hour earlier", although we've been informed it used to say "three hours earlier", and to further confuse the matter we just went through daylight savings in the USA.

Dec-30-10  philchess: Hi I have a game I played against a GM in a simul. Could you add it to the database please?
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <philchess> PGN Upload Utility

Just follow the directions with your PGN and they will upload your game when they can. Once your game is in the database, you'll have your own player page.

  Annie K.: Happy New Year, <>! :)

  twinlark: Happy New Year fellers! You're in your tenth year here. Bet that's whizzed by in a flash!

  Benzol: <Benzol> <chessgames would it be possible for you to process a number of outstanding uploaded games so that Game Collection: Isaac Boleslavsky - Selected Games can be completed?>

<chessgames> The above was posted on December 12th. Am I on someone's ignore list or something? A good number of these games have been outstanding for over two months or more. Hope I haven't ticked someone off accidentally.

Jan-02-11  Dmaster995: Happy New Year <>! Is a Bob4 or another non-computer game in the works?
Premium Chessgames Member
  crawfb5: <Benzol> It's not you. I have quite a few that have been in the pipeline for a while as well. I think CG is just slower than normal on processing uploads this time of year.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Benzol> <crawfb5> Same here. I'm also blaming end-of-year distrctions.

  Peligroso Patzer: Morozevich vs Navara, 2011 appears twice in the games database listed at Reggio Emilia (2010) (#5 and #21), and the result (1-0) is currently reflected twice in the standings table.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Peligroso Patzer: BTW, comments posted for Morozevich vs Navara, 2011 currently appear only in the version listed as #21 at Reggio Emilia (2010), so that is the copy of the game that should be retained.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Phony Benoni> <crawfb5> Thankyou both for posting. Although it's not a good thing it's feels better to know that I'm not the only one.

  Benzol: <chessgames> The 118th New Zealand Ch is on at the moment. Our own Richard Taylor is playing in the Major Open. Round One games pgn can be accessed at
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: <Benzol> I'm playing in the Championship.

I lost to IM Anthony Kerr in round one. He has been NZ Champion 11 times so I excuse myself for that! Draw yesterday with Bill Forster.

Leonard McLaren had a win over IM Russell Dive. He played a nice combination leading to a won ending.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: <Benzol> One of my old games vs. Peter Stuart from the 60s got through and is now on (thanks to them).

I have a couple of books - one on the Tarrasch French and one about the Nimzo and there are number of complete Master and GM games not one here so I will upload them in time.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Here is link to some of the games played live. You can play over the games.

  Benzol: <<Benzol> I'm playing in the Championship>

Oops! Sorry Richard I only glanced at cross-table late last night when I was very tired and got confused.


Good luck in the remainder of the games. I might see you at the venue this afternoon.

I first did a search on <Pogonina> which led me to the CG Challenge. I could read all the posts containing the word Pogonina while I did *not* sign up for that game. I thought you would like to know that as well.

  twinlark: The crosstable at Reggio Emilia (2010) is all over the shop after 7 rounds, having some of the players completing 6, 7 or 8 rounds, including one game by Morozevich v Navara that's been listed twice.

  Golden Executive: <> At the current CG Challenge, how can the World Team claim a draw by three fold repetition?
Premium Chessgames Member If there is a three-time repetition just tell an arbiter (us) and we'll declare it drawn.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Golden Executive: <CG> Thank you very much for your promptly response.
