Feb-18-07  Whitehat1963: <Jesus is from Cuba? That ought to make for an interesting correction to the bible.>

I'm sure some who played him between about 1910 and 1936 might have thought that Capablanca was his reincarnation!

Mar-03-07  Marmot PFL: He looks like another prodigy whose interest in chess declined as an adult, if the number of short draws is any indication.
May-26-07  tonsillolith: <Marmot PFL> how dare you make a serious comment about chess when everyone else is humorously making the connection between his name and that of a historic figure!
May-26-07  LPeristy: <<WarmasterKron> Blessed are the cheesemakers?>

Clearly it's not meant to be taken literally. He's clearly referring to all makers of dairy products.

Jun-11-07  cyruslaihy: Jesus said: peace, be still, i want a quiet positional game, not a tactical melee

  Peligroso Patzer: What a spectacular attack Nogueiras played in the game featured as today's GotD!: Hjartarson vs J Nogueiras, 1988.

He also has the distinction of being the winner in the GotD (from Christmas Day 2005) with my all-time favorite pun: J Nogueiras vs M Gongora, 2001

Mar-24-09  Dredge Rivers: <blacksburg>

Yes, you're the only one! :)

Mar-24-09  Dredge Rivers: I tell ya, this guy's bigger than the Beatles! :)
Apr-20-09  Raisin Death Ray: Does the Budda have an entry?
Apr-20-09  shortsight: Nope, Buddha, if ever, would have played chaturanga.
Apr-21-09  Raisin Death Ray: Ok, I'll bite. What the heck is chaturanga?
Apr-22-09  Open Defence: its a game that was played in India in ancient times. Shatranj and then Chess is supposed to have developed from it
Apr-25-09  Raisin Death Ray: <Open Defence> Thank you. Maybe someday, I'll actually care. :)

Jul-17-12  karnak64: Many happy returns, GM Nogueiras!
Jul-17-13  Nosnibor: Best wishes on your bithday GM Nogueiras! <GrahamClayton>In your post May21 2012 you have uploaded a game stating that Nogueiras won it but unless there is a mistake it would appear that Sznapik was the victor.

  Penguincw: Happy 55th birthday to GM Jesus Nogueiras, probably most famous for (almost) checkmating with just a king and knight vs a king and pawn (J Nogueiras vs M Gongora Reyes, 2001).
