May-28-08  Xeroxx: Hoho, too bad white saced the exchange with 41.Rxf5 He was winning.
Sep-02-08  Ziggurat: Aah, my eyes hurt.
Sep-06-08  just a kid: You're kidding me,This the stupid mate you learn within your 1st week of chess for god's sake.
Oct-01-08  Xeroxx: Is there any book on the Dubois Reti Defense?
Oct-22-08  Pianoplayer: You have got to be kidding me, ♕,♔ vs. ♔ the absolute EASIEST position to WIN!.......Wow
Nov-04-08  whatthefat: Amazing, this is one of the worst games I've ever seen. Perhaps <nimh> should do a playing quality analysis of it?
Nov-05-08  ILoveCrazyhouse: Even people who only play once a year don't disgust me so much as this game. Please delete this game before I give up chess.
Nov-05-08  Xeroxx: <Please delete this game>

No way! This game is pure art!

Dec-16-08  jeeky1996: I disagree with Pianoplayer.

In my opinion, I think K + R vs K is the easiest position to win.

When your board only has two kings and a pawn which is destined to promote, always promote to a rook, becuase then you have lesser chances of stalemate.

Jan-07-09  WhiteRook48: oh come on don't tell me Black fell for stalemate when he was a whole Queen up.
Jan-22-09  Ychromosome: Ahhhh... this game makes me feel great.
Feb-05-09  WhiteRook48: worst game ever
Feb-16-09  Lucid Faia: I wonder what Rybka would think of this game.
Feb-19-09  WhiteRook48: any normal player would play 58...Kd4
Mar-18-09  Pawnage: I think I would promote to a rook and not a Queen if just Kings were left on the board. I mean, why not, you're only lowering the risk of making a fool of yourself. Plus under-promotion always makes you look cooler. ;) This looks roughly like a one minute blitz game between patzers. Its hard to justify this kind of play.
Mar-25-09  WhiteRook48: 58 Ka2! is a bit clever. Black should not have fallen for the trap. 55...c1=R: Since I know the KR vs K mate inside and out (no boasting intended) and there are often tons of traps the lone king can set up, I don't see why not.

Jul-11-09  just a kid: <Lucid Faia:I wonder what rybka would think of this game.>

It would have a heart attack and self destruct after the 58th move of Black.

Jul-26-09  Xeroxx: I want annotations. For this game. Please.

  kevin86: Maybe black was given a death threat that if he won---

Instead,he forced a draw.

  GrahamClayton: Time trouble for Black?
Aug-26-12  westomer: What a nice stalemate...

  whiteshark: irony off :/
Jun-18-18  Omnipotent00001: 44...c4 would win in 16
