Apr-09-11  Tigranny: How did this game get to be Game Of The Day when it's less than 10 moves (0)? The Pun Submission Page says no game that are less than 10 moves are allowed. I've been trying to make another game Game Of The Day when it was 0 moves like this one.

  whiteshark: Mind-bottling, isn't it?
Oct-16-11  Cemoblanca: My suggestion: They should take up the game! The venue for the match: Toilet. :p
Oct-16-11  Cemoblanca: ..and by the way: Instead "Skip to my Loo" I would suggest "The Toiletgate Affair". :D
Oct-16-11  Cemoblanca: ECO = 00!!! ;0)
Feb-24-13  Mudphudder: At what point did black gain the advantage?
Apr-25-13  Conrad93: Seriously, why would he be going to the bathroom that often? FIDE had a right to question it.
Nov-09-13  John Abraham: Is it just me or does Kramnik (and his former manager Carsten Hensel, or however you spell it) look extremely handsome in the above photo?

Maybe he had a bladder problem. Maybe, and the most obvious answer, he liked to walk around to help him think, as Kasparov used to.

  Stonehenge: Kramnik was in serious time trouble. He had to play on 30 sec. excrements.
Nov-18-16  A.T PhoneHome: Topalov was heard shouting "Weeeeee" after this game had ended.

Lolol. Now the time I spent reading through the comments on this game has been justified.

Mar-29-17  taltime: After each move Mr. Kramnik immediately heads to the rest room and from it directly to the bathroom. During every game he visited the relaxation room 25 times at the average and the bathroom more than 50 times - the bathroom is the only place without video surveillance. Unlike Mr. Kramnik, the World Champion Veselin Topalov spends his time mainly at the playing table. The average number of times he visited the rest room and the bathroom is 8 and 4 respectively.

It is very obvious that Kramink was cheating

  tamar: After each pitch, the pitcher retreated behind the mound, and picked up a suspicious looking bag, shook it, and tossed it down again.

It is very obvious he was cheating.

Mar-15-18  rmilamrtapa: He gave up a whole game and the cheats still couldn't beat him.
Dec-19-18  BickeDag: Hands down, that is probably the best game of chess every played.
