Dec-01-06  e4Newman: what's up with that?
Dec-01-06  syracrophy: Chigorin is, without any doubt, a really bad player. He's more famous for his blunders than for his victories-which aren't so much. I don't know why Chigorin is considered as a great player. He was just "the rock on the masters' road". Every could beat him easily
Dec-01-06  THE pawn: Surely you are sarcastic here.
Dec-01-06  Aspirador: Chigorin is one of the last, lonely, and wretched. He's a pearl in the backwash of the underground!
Feb-26-12  King Death: This game wasn't Chigorin's finest hour but I don't understand the criticism dumped on him here.
Feb-26-12  iking: <Chigorin> is like <Topalov> as being assailed and criticized for the things they have failed to do. But in many ways they are very strong players, who can demolish us given the chance of a chess match.
Feb-26-12  iking: i agree with you <King Death> ...

  perfidious: Bit surprising really that such a great master of attack overlooked this possibility.
Jun-25-20  Granny O Doul: We might have expected it--if only we'd listened.
