Live in Sonoma County, California, and am retired. Have not been active chess player for a long time but hope to get back into the game.

   Axel1940 has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-05-21 M Subaric vs P Trifunovic, 1946 (replies)
Axel1940: Why does this opening fall under QG "Declined" when Black accepts pawn?
   Jan-21-21 M Atabayev vs Wojtaszek, 2019 (replies)
Axel1940: A good pun, but how about "At a boy!" ?
   Dec-23-20 H Santa Cruz vs K Darga, 1964
Axel1940: "I saw Darga crushing Santa Cruz" is clearly a superior pun. FYI, I came across a line in an ee Cummings poem that could apply to our lameduck prez: "A clown's smirk in a baboon's skull."
   Dec-09-20 R B Johnson vs C Brasket, 1960 (replies)
Axel1940: I played Curt Brasket in a simultaneous exhibition at the U of Minn. in 1961. He was Minnesota State Champion for many years.
   Oct-22-20 M Smolovic vs D Sekulic, 1992
Axel1940: vrati milo za draga (Serbo-Croat idiom for "to return tit for tat")
   Oct-21-20 Botvinnik vs Reshevsky, 1938 (replies)
Axel1940: I agree with RookFile: Sammy -- too much horsing around.
   Oct-20-20 R Mesias Rojas vs L Rojas Keim, 2007 (replies)
Axel1940: Seemed more like 100 Years War than War of the Roses.
   Sep-17-20 H Morton vs W Adams, 1937 (replies)
Axel1940: I have to comment on Player of the Day. Two chess masters named Tigran Petrosian and not related?? Weird.
   Aug-05-20 Steinitz vs W Bolt, 1865 (replies)
Axel1940: Too much horsing around. Nice finish tho.
   Jul-14-20 H Weil vs Alekhine, 1942 (replies)
Axel1940: They were playing chess in Lublin in 1942??? Was Alekhine a Nazi stooge?
