  Scuvy: This GOTD, and its tltle, are a fitting tribute to Daniel Freeman, the co-founder and webmaster of this site. RIP Mr. Freeman. It does not seem like two years since his tragically premature passing.
Jul-24-20  nalinw: Two years? I was about to ask if today is the first anniversary.

RIP - your legacy lives on .....

  yiotta: Nicely played.

  thegoodanarchist: <Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane.

I can see the red tail lights.

Heading for Spain...

And I can see Daniel waving goodbye

GOD he looks like Daniel....

Must be the clouds in my eyes.>

God Rest His Beautiful Soul. He is a star in the face of the sky.

Two years on... and we all still miss Daniel.

Jul-24-20  Brenin: Daniel is greatly missed. This game was nicely played indeed, though why sacrifice the bishop with 12 ... Bxf2+, when an immediate 12 ... dxe4 wins a piece?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: The perfect Game of the Day and pun for this sad anniversary.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: A very sad anniversary.
Jul-24-20  Nezhmetdinov: Thanks for everything Daniel.

  piltdown man: A poignant pun, apparently.

  Honza Cervenka: It is so painful loss. Daniel was a true friend of mine despite we never met each other personally and were in contact only by e-mail and this wonderful site.

Btw, good game, <Sneaky>. Never mind that 12...dxe4 could win the piece. Pretty finish repaired this little omision.

  HeMateMe: For years I had no idea Daniel and <Sneaky> were the same. I guess I would fail cybersecurity 101 class.

  Zenchess: RIP Daniel. On a lighthearted note, NN may have slowed down a bit in recent years, but I see he is still around after 523 years. Hats off to the chess world's most lovable loser, who nonetheless rises to the occasion every once in a while and beats the best.
