Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-08  D.Observer: Did white resign because of the 200-point gap?
Mar-04-08  porgue: wow, what a game...


Jul-26-08  FizzyY: its not a good enough reason to resign.
Jul-26-08  Alphastar: The infamous Danailov-Topalov gambit, first seen in Kramnik vs Topalov, 2006, strikes again.

  Benzol: Actually it might be a bit more like the Fischer gambit as seen in Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 Nathan didn't show up I believe.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Bobsterman3000: Nathan was too busy celebrating his lone win over Hilton Bennett:

H Bennett vs N Goodhue, 2008

  Benzol: Might be a good theory except for the round numbers.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Maybe the sleep of the just?

  whiteshark: How about "The Man Who Wasn't There" ?

  Richard Taylor: Nathan is currently playing in the ACC Club Champs. I'm in the B Grade this year although I was in the A Grade in 2006. And in earlier times.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: I see - I remember what happened here this was a default - Nathan said he wanted to (catch up with his ) work - so he went off to work (some sort of legal or accounting work whatever) and forfeited his game...

I was talking him to him on Monday night and a few days before...He's a very good rapid player: gets players out of "book" and so on.

Oct-05-08  thebribri8: white can actually maintain a playable game after 1. e4
