   Oct-18-19 Xavier Parmentier
 
TheNige: There is a 2019 film that depicts FM Xavier Parmentier as a chess coach. The part is played by the great Gerard Depardieu. The film is called "Fahim, the Little Chess Prince" and a synopsis follows: "Directed by : Pierre François Martin-Laval Produced by : Waiting for Cinéma ...
 
   May-05-19 Y R Yakovich vs Smagin, 1993
 
TheNige: 62... Ra7 loses at once. [63. Bxa7 +- ] Perhaps a time scramble or a typo?
 
   May-04-19 W Petri vs Smagin, 1989
 
TheNige: 30... Rd3?? 31. Bxd3 wins for White. Perhaps the move recorded is an error ... or this was a time scramble with errors on both sides.
 
   Mar-21-19 Shabalov vs A Kaptsan, 1997 (replies)
 
TheNige: I witnessed this disaster for Aron. He handled his horrific blunder with dignity and, I hope, had a nice long chat with GM Shabalov afterwards.
 
   Mar-07-18 Aron Kaptsan
 
TheNige: Aron Kaptsan: b: Odessa, Ukraine January 10, 1929 d: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on February 17, 2018. RIP.
 
   Jul-05-17 D Recuero Guerra vs Roy Saptarshi, 2006
 
TheNige: After 22. Be3 the position is equal. Why did White resign? Was it zeitnot?
 
   Feb-08-17 Nikolay Dmitrievich Grigoriev (replies)
 
TheNige: "Nikolay Dmitrievich Grigoriev Number of games in database: 56 Years covered: 1910 to 1945" Grigoriev passed away in 1938. An editorial correction should be made in his biographical entry.

TheNige: The book that "Resignation Trap" mentioned is called "David Yanovsky" and has 175 games of the Polish-French player. The authors of the book, which was published in 1987, were S. Voronkov and D. Plisetsky. The notation is long algebraic.
 
   Dec-15-07 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
TheNige: capatal noted "Karpov, meanwhile, has showed his old Bolshevik stripes by publicly supporting Putin." On the contrary. Karpov showed his stripes by trying to visit his old rival, Garry Kasparov, while the latter was recently in jail. "A person is in trouble; of course I'm not ...
