Jul-16-05  aw1988: Lol, that's a great name.
Jul-21-05  Orbitkind: Brilliant name ; D
Jul-22-05  Robin01: The ankle bone is connected to the knee bone . . .
Jul-22-05  Robin01: Wait, it's the ankle bone is connected to the leg bone, the leg bone is connected to the knee bone . . .
Jul-22-05  Orbitkind: I wonder if he is actually a kneebone? If so, his 0% record on isn't so bad. If I were a kneebone I'm sure I'd be even worse at chess.
Jul-22-05  Robin001: Maybe Mr. Browne could enlighten us as to who Mr. Kneebone is?!
Jul-23-05  Orbitkind: Kneebone sounds like a type of steak. Browne must have really low standards to play a kneebone. I admittedly like the chess variant "Patzer Chess"; i.e. playing players rated 800 etc, but playing a kneebone is going too far. Why don't you just set up a board in front of a glass of milk or a hermit-crab shell and play one of those. I wonder who's kneebone Browne played. Maybe the owner of the kneebone decided to stay anonymous because it lost the game.
Nov-30-05  THE pawn: I too played against a steak last night and I won. They're just not made for chess you know...

  technical draw: <kevin86> I think that is a rather knee jerk reaction.

No kidding! So did i, although my game has yet to come to a conclusion, Steak seems VERY careful!

  alexmagnus: Chessbase database has three players named Kneebone. All of them active around 1985, but of none any games from the english championship. Hm...
Mar-25-08  Wone Jone: I challenge him to a match! Wone Jone vs. Kneebone! Whadda ya think?
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: that Kneebone will make an excuse not to play the match. "I broke my Kneebone!"

  offramp: His name is probably an American version of Patel.

<offramp: His name is probably an American version of Patel.>

Yes. I was wondering if this player had passed his patellar reflex test.

(Hard to imagine a PatÚl changing his name to something as goofy as Kneebone, but then, given the reputation of that large and extremely wealthy family (having to do with the way it *became* such a wealthy family), perhaps it's not so very far-fetched.)

  alexmagnus: Hey, I see Kneebone finally got a first name. How did you (or whoever did) find out? I searched all databases available for free, and everywhere this player was listed as just "Kneebone", without a first name.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Ah, I see Mr. Kneebone commented himself on the game vs. Brown, so the mystery is solved.

  norami: This player reminds me of the Sherlock Holmes story "The Red-Headed League". When Jabez Wilson went to the League's address he found " a manufactory of artificial kneecaps".
Aug-15-16  bengalcat47: Mr. Kneebone, it appears that you are up right there with the "famous" baseball player Bob Uecker.
