Aug-11-13  Xeroxx: white player doesn't even have a full name.
Aug-11-13  Doniez: This young Indian player last year broke the Anand previous record as the youngest Indian national champion. But, I can't find his complete first name. About the game, Fabiano played carefully and deserved to win after the rook sac, paving in gold the way for his pawns to go queening.

Maybe Akash is? :D

Just as in case of Anand - Anand is his first name, while Viswanathan is the name of the father (and yes, he is occasionally written as V. Anand, just as G. Akash). Would make sense, especially since Akash appears to be from the same region of India as Anand is.

Aug-12-13  fgh: <G. Akash> is the player's official name, as far as I know.
Aug-12-13  Doniez: <alexmagnus> yes, it makes sense, especially if both Anand and Akash come from the same region of India.
Aug-14-13  anandrulez: G.Akash is in LN , FN format because this is a official fide tourney . So FN is Akash . You call folks by FN regarless of where you put it . For official purpose we use LN , FN format and for casual use we use FN , LN format .
Dec-12-13  kingfu: Thanks Anandrulez. I thought the 5 different regions in India had one language with dialects. I was wrong! Five different languages and language customs!

I love the Morozevich variation of the French. But as white, I would play 4.e5 to go into the Steinitz which I do not like as black, so I play the Winawer.

May-03-14  kenkur: I know in Chinese culture, LN, FN is standard. In Western Europe, N.America LN, FN is used only for `formal` lists or documents, otherwise FN, LN. Eastern Europe seems to be sort of in the middle.

Aug-17-15  floydAkash: G.Akash is in LN,FN format, which is common in India. I am or, was M.Akash, but now I use the proper FN LN format which is Akash Moothedath.

May-13-20  Brenin: Once it was down to R+N v R+B, Black could use his K as an attacking piece. Playing 31 f4 opened the door to Black's forces.

Lost in the Akashic Records.

May-13-20  erniecohen: So, at age 16, he was in position to win the world championship in the current cycle (if he won out in the World Cup, Candidates, and WC match) . What is the youngest age at which someone has been in that position, controlling one's own destiny in the current cycle? (I suspect it would probably be the youngest person to enter a World Cup qualifier.)
May-13-20  laskereshevsky: Fischer at the age of 15 years and 5 months partecipate in the Portoroz Interzonal, and qualifed as 6th for the Bled-Zagreb-Belgrade candidates tournament... In addition the US Championship 1957/58 won by Bobby at 14Y. and 9 months could considered part of his run to the title cause gived him a spot in the interzonal... so for extension he started this bid for the title at 14y.o.

  ajk68: 40...Rxh4! Don't even know if that qualifies as a sacrifice. Black gets the material (and more) back almost immediately.
May-13-20  erniecohen: Okay, alternative puzzle. Suppose you take up chess and are invincible (can win every game), but nobody likes you so nobody will do you any favors. (So highly-ranked players won't play you unless they have to, and sponsors won't select you into the world cup or into the top tier of a national championship). What is the minimum number of games you would have to play to be guaranteed to become world champion? How quickly could it be done?

  Annie K.: Oops, I missed the deadline on putting in a new GotD... so now it can take a little time to get processed. :(

Meanwhile I'll just manually point you over to today's game, which is Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1936 with the title 'The Knights of Nottingham' by <Phony Benoni>.

I thought there was an Air, Er.. on a G String again.
