GBKnight: It has been reported in the Netherlands that Eley died in April 2022 and his grave is in Amsterdam.
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
GBKnight: Indeed, white's pawn sacrifice h5 allows black the idea of playing Rg8 or h4 himself
   Feb-01-18 Nakamura vs Rapport, 2018 (replies)
GBKnight: I must admit I thought black must have resigned after 33 f6 +, rather than a draw agreed. Black has to play Kf8, then 35 Nb8 (threatens Rfe1) Ra8 36 Nd7+ Kg8. There does not seem to be anything decisive, but I was a bit surprised. Presumaby white then has to worry about counterplay
   Jan-29-18 Raymond Keene (replies)
GBKnight: Yes, congratulations Ray, and thanks for all the games and instructive comments
   Jul-10-17 David Edward Rumens (replies)
GBKnight: Very sad news that Dave Rumens passed away on 8 July 2017, at the age of 77, after a short illness. Very successful on the UK weekend circuit in the 1970s, almost but not quite an IM, with two norms to his name, pioneered a style of play around the Grand Prix Attack, and could be ...
   Dec-29-16 E Player vs M Galyas, 2016 (replies)
GBKnight: White lost this from a rook ahead? Black seemed to have some compensation, but not for a whole rook
   Nov-14-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
GBKnight: Well, Carlsen has now won a pawn, but it could still be problematic to convert to a win
   Apr-24-16 Norway Chess (2016) (replies)
GBKnight: "I don't think any bridges have been burnt. I was more surprised by Malcolm Pein's Twitter outburst: <Preparation ? Nah - he's just chickening out - pathetic, pleased we didn't invite him to Grand Chess Tour>" If the great Malcolm really said this, then he has gone way down ...
   Jan-06-16 Hastings (2015/16) (replies)
GBKnight: <It is very funny to hear a University-educated man from England's richest county pretending to speak like a tramp off the Balls Pond Road> A bit unfair - what has a university education got to do with how someone speaks? Well-spoken people might tend to go to university, but
   Jul-30-15 D Howell vs D Gormally, 2015 (replies)
GBKnight: <Albion> Of course, black did not play 120...Ke4; the draw was agreed after 120 Kg1. It was probably the arbiter placing the king on e4 to signify to the spectators that the game was over. Databases are littered with games which apparently end with these strange king moves
