   Judah has kibitzed 902 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-16-21 Francois Philidor (replies)
Judah: <<offramp>: Yes. It is from the French <Philo d'or> which means <lover of gold>. He really liked gold, apparently.> Actually, as <von Krolock> pointed out earlier in these pages*: a) the etymon you suggest would be not French, but a chimera of Greek and ...
   Jun-15-21 Philidor vs NN, 1790 (replies)
Judah: Arguably, these constructed games where Philidor plays both sides ought to be listed as Philidor vs. Philidor.
   Aug-20-20 Tania Sachdev (replies)
Judah: <<Judah> is essentially right; the comparative suffix -er and the superlative suffix -est attach to monosyllabic adjectives, while we use "more" and "most" for trisyllabic adjectives and longer.> You say I'm essentially right, but your statement seems rather to agree with ...
   Aug-20-20 Evgeny Sveshnikov (replies)
Judah: <<HeMateMe>: Everytime I see that name, I'm reminded of the Kalishnikov rifle, the sturdy AK-47, the weapon of choice of third world soldiers.> Surely, that rifle is the namesake of the Kalashnikov variation (along with the allusion to the Sveshnikov variation, of course).
   Aug-12-20 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016
Judah: Does anyone have some insight into why Carlsen played Kh2 on move 27? It seems like his main plan to play for a win at this point was to push the Kingside pawns, and if that's the case, I don't know why he would give up the golden opportunity to push them with tempo. He could have ...
   Jul-26-20 Legends of Chess (2020) (replies)
Judah: <Can players see each other on their screens during the games?> Yes.
   Jul-13-20 Boris Gelfand (replies)
Judah: Gelfand has been invited to the event <Legends of Chess> on the Magnus Carlsen chess tour.
   Jul-02-20 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
Judah: Hey, so this morning, was redirecting to one of these generic domain-name squats filled with a bunch of ads. Now the site is back. Does anyone know what was up with that?
   Jun-25-20 E Szalanczy vs Thi Mai Hung Nguyen, 2009 (replies)
Judah: <After 58.a8/Q we see three times as many Queens as pawns.> That's not a particularly rare occurrence. It occurs at move 77 of Ulf Andersson vs H Pfleger, 1974 , to give one example of many.
   Nov-05-19 King's Gambit Declined (C30)
Judah: This ECO code should be labeled simply King's Gambit, not <King's Gambit Declined>.
