Doctor Who
Member since Jan-14-02 · Last seen Apr-08-18
It's not fair that Doctor Who should have eleven lives, when his fans don't even have one.

   Doctor Who has kibitzed 506 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-17-12 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
Doctor Who: Question: I always thought that in openings like this, it would make sense for White to recapture Bxd5 with 17.Qxd5, to keep that d-pawn of Black's fully backward. But in GM games when I see this opening that never happens. What's wrong with my reasoning?
   May-12-12 Gelfand vs Anand, 2012 (replies)
Doctor Who: <This endgame is definitely not dry and boring.> I really want to believe that, but I just don't see it yet. Can somebody show me a variation where one side gets into even a little bit of trouble?
   May-11-12 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
Doctor Who: Excellent post-game interview at the live video site taking place right now.
   Aug-09-11 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1991 (replies)
Doctor Who: 18.Kd2! in crafty's line seems a bit audacious but I'll buy that White is winning there.
   Sep-09-10 Carlsen vs The World, 2010 (replies)
Doctor Who: I prefer the photo of Magnus wearing boxing gloves.
   Nov-10-09 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 2009 (replies)
Doctor Who: My chess computer is screaming for Qh5 as well. I don't understand, is it just to threaten c5?
   Oct-02-09 Topalov vs Wang Yue, 2009 (replies)
Doctor Who: Nakamura could beat Rybka from this position ;-)
   Oct-02-09 Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2009 (replies)
Doctor Who: Did anybody follow that "zugzwang" fantasy variation that Natalia posted? Here's my attempt to make a FEN [DIAGRAM] Try to suggest a move for Black that doesn't lose outright ... it's not easy!
   Oct-01-09 Jakovenko vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
Doctor Who: Thanks <CG> thanks <Natalia> but also thanks to all you good people like <achieve> <twinlark> <Open Defense> <marcwordsmith> <Pulsar> and others, who helped carry the commentary during the absence of our lovely hostess! And thanks to ...
   Oct-01-09 E Polovnikova-Atalik vs J Werle, 2006 (replies)
Doctor Who: < it's a pin-a-thon! > A Monty Pinathon :-)

  tpstar: <Doctor Who> Greetings and Salutations. In case you were unaware, I just wanted to say you had a key line in The Kramniad (1.10) = John Homer Stapfer

Good luck with your forum. =)

  Doctor Who: Thank you <tpstar> I had read your poem when you first posted it, and while reading my own words I didn't recognize them! "Kasparov's chess skill is matched only by the size of his ego." That's a quote I'm willing to stand behind.

  Richard Taylor: Doctor Who - who are you?
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: He's the first kibitzer in the The Kibitzer's Café!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: The Kramniad is (surely) a play on Alexander Pope's "Dunciad" (a satirical invective of many lines in rhyming couplets in which he attacks all his rivals and or enemies and anyone he doesn't like and which in turn satirically 'echoes' the "Aeneid" which is the Latin a 'reply' to the "Odyssey" - it's a bit nasty... but great fun.

  Richard Taylor: Dr Who - congratulations oh Time Lord - he who is first shall be first and last or last and first except when he is last when he shall be last first and first last - but if it be that he be the last first-first - he shall be first.

  Doctor Who: Actually I only stumbled on this site two years ago, but I hopped in the Tardis and travelled back to 2002 to see what it was like at the very start. I hope I didn't upset the delicate fabric of causality in doing so.
Mar-16-08  wolfmaster: <Richard Taylor> The "Kramniad" is a play on Homer's Iliad, recounting the story of the Trojan War through Achilles' point of view. For further information, read a book on it :)
Sep-12-08  artyom2008: hello you guys seem to have fun here keep it going
Jul-15-10  The Famous Chess Cat: In regards to the part of your biography reading, "It's not fair that Doctor Who should have eight lives...,"

The Doctor is able to regenerate twelve times, for a total of thirteen incarnations.
