(In a ceremony on 18 May 2005, control of this account was formally ceded to George Rachels, the new adjunct deputy alternative secretary of the Douglaston Chess Congress.)

Hello everyone! George Rachels here, the adjunct deputy alternative secretary-elect of the DCC for the term beginning January 1, 2006...pending approval by the Douglaston Chess Congress. I love Ulf Andersson! He is the coolest drawmaster alive!

   Jul-31-05 Tarrasch vs Romberg, 1893 (replies)
Glycerius: It seems interesting that in this odds game, we see White's a-pawn on a3, which does not happen in the other three Tarrasch-Romberg "games" (perhaps "steamrollers" would fit the bill better). I would have liked to see 25...Rc8.

Glycerius: Walking with the maturity of a twenty-year-old but the grace of a baby, Miss Hwang stooped at several points in the walk to pick up trash and throw it out, encouraging everyone else to follow her. This endeavor had, as a matter of course, slightly less success. Although dressed in
   May-21-05 Topalov vs Ponomariov, 2005 (replies)
Glycerius: 20. ♖h8+ ♔f7 21. ♕g6+ ♔e7 22. gxf6+ ♔d7 23. ♕d3+ ♔c6 24. ♕xd8 ♖xd8 25. ♗e4+ ♔b6 26. ♖xd8 cxd2+ 27. ♔xd2 gxf6 28. ♗xa8 Etc. White seems to be winning.
   May-21-05 Speelman vs G Botterill, 1977
Glycerius: 17 ♗xe6 is quite a curious move. I suppose White has compensation, i.e.: 17...fxe6 18 ♕xg6, but the jury is still out on this one.
   Feb-05-05 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921 (replies)
Glycerius: <Bigbluedog> I believe Capablanca's score in New York 1924 was 14 1/2 points, not 14. I know that sounds like nitty-gritty correcting, but your profile says that you like chess history so I thought it would be worth noting. I should mention in passing though (replying to ...
   Feb-05-05 G Desportes vs Kramnik, 2000 (replies)
Glycerius: <northbridge> Well, it's hard to see how Kramnik survives in any case. I'm not sure if he had winning chances before 40...♕f5? but at least by move 40 he seemed cooked, i.e.: 41 ♘xe4 ♖e3 42 ♘xf6 ♖xe7 43 ♖xe7 ♕xf6 44 ♕e2 ...
   Feb-05-05 Lagno vs Areshchenko, 2003 (replies)
Glycerius: Is it just me, or did Areshchenko just leave his Cavalier totally en prise with his last move?
   Jan-29-05 Deep Thought vs I Ivanov, 1988 (replies)
Glycerius: Ivanov withdrew from the tournament after this game; he was apparently quite upset and perhaps not a little embarrassed.
   May-30-04 XXXIV Bosnia (2004) (replies)
Glycerius: Wait a minute LOL! Anytime chess players of a 2600+ (or so) ilk gather and wage war on the 64 squares, it's always fun! Even if every single game were drawn and lasted less than 20 moves (Kramnik's surest way of avoiding losses LOL), I would still come out and watch...
   May-30-04 Pirc vs Tartakower, 1950 (replies)
Glycerius: A beautiful game on your part, tpstar, which is a rarity since many Yahoo players like to play 1-minute chess games with utter disregard for elevating chess' reputation =). Ummm...yeah, anytime Black plays ...f5 early in the opening, one should be careful, but ultimately Black's ...
