And a great one at that.

Even though I haven't played it for about ten years, I still remember the cheat codes.

Apr-18-11  DarthStapler: Duke Nukem Forever is finally going to come out
Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: he does have a cool name & he beat kupreichik & got draws vs kasparov, karpov & bronstein, & became a GM so he definitely knows what he's doing. unfortunately it looks like he has retired b/c their aren't any games in the database after 2007. he also won the 2007 European Senior Championship so he should still compete in it. he would probably still be a threat to win it! the last games of his in the cg database r from that tourney so i guess he wanted to end his career on a good note.
Apr-18-15  waustad: He played in a rapid tournament as recently as March 2015. It was his first rated play in about 2 years.

  eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Rashkovsky!
<waustad> Really? That's good to hear that he's still playing in tournaments!
Apr-18-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Duke Nukhim.

  FSR: Weird. Five minutes ago, I was reading Gulko's notes to N Rashkovsky vs Gulko, 1981. He observed, "My opponent was a strong grandmaster who was never permitted to play in any tournament outside the USSR. I don't know what crime he committed against the KGB."

Now I come here and see that Rashkovsky's win against Petrosian in Petrosian vs N Rashkovsky, 1974 is GOTD.

  yiotta: <FSR:... Petrosian vs N Rashovsky, 1974> GOTD and what a beatdown, perhaps Petrosian's worst loss ever.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <yiotta> It's up there, but let's not forget Kotov vs Petrosian, 1949, Liberzon vs Petrosian, 1964, and Petrosian vs Kotov, 1952.
