   Oct-21-15 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
Isolani: Thanks Boomie and beatgiant. How in the world did I overlook Re1? Wow.
   Apr-14-13 Robert Eugene Byrne (replies)
Isolani: I am not trying to be argumentative here but Frank Marshall and Reuben Fine should be in that top five list. Were the Byrne brothers the strongest male chess siblings ever?
   Mar-22-13 Tarjan vs J M Hodgson, 1983 (replies)
Isolani: ^Actually I forgot about the the black c4 pawn (oops), however there is 13.Qc2+...I do not know right now but there seems to be something forceful here.
   Dec-25-12 Anand vs Bologan, 2003 (replies)
Isolani: At first glance with the final position I was baffled that Bologan resigned this early. After closer observation however I noticed that black's pieces are discombobulated and are almost in zugzwang.

Isolani: I initially did not make the connection that he wrote a fraction of the Everyman Chess "Starting Out" opening books. I actually have been collecting these books, at least those pertaining to the openings that I play. Personally, I do not think that beginners are the only ones who ...

Isolani: << drkodos: ^ This is a ridiculously spartan database in some areas ... make generalizations at your own peril ....> And one of those areas is any player from the pre computer period that isn't at the very highest level. If I remember right Wolff used to play a lot of open ...

Isolani: <Has anyone here checked out the new photo gallery? I'm not sure what kinds of photos everyone else has seen, but this was the first picture I've found with both Judit and Bobby in it: >... I was actually even more surprised ...
   Dec-31-11 Jennifer Shahade (replies)
Isolani: The background in the picture looks very similar to the interior of the Orlando International Airport. Since that is where the past US Open was held I wonder if she was in attendance for that. I do not recall her competing in the tournament, at least I did not see her name on the ...
   Dec-30-11 Bruno Parma (replies)
Isolani: 350 games played with the white pieces in the database, all 1.e4. This is my kind of guy. Is there anyone else in the database who has played only one first move as white during his/her entire career? I am specifically referring to those with more than a 100 white games listed. As ...
   Dec-30-11 S Bouaziz vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
Isolani: Did not even consider 45...Rxh3, I must admit. I was so worried about white's imminent pawn promotion that I believed the only way for black to escape was an immediate checking move leading to some type of repetition, but nothing was there.
