derbyc: <If FIDE ask them to kiss each other than what?> Well, so do you think, any sane organisation would require kissing? I am sure never will that happen. So your argument is based on an extremely unprobable future situation. Such as, I don't think it is valid.

derbyc: Chessbase also has the translation here:
   Jan-24-07 Corus Group A (2007) (replies)
derbyc: <Anyone know how colors were allocated?> What little I know of Corus system comes from "My great predecessors 5", in which Kasparov has written that he and Karpov drew two neighboring numbers. As a consequence Karpov was playing Kasparov's previous round opponent in all but one
   Nov-17-06 Tal Memorial (2006) (replies)
derbyc: <The major difference? Topalov.> Actually Judit Polgar is also known for playing fighting chess. Don't give the credit to only one person.
   Sep-01-06 Leko - Karpov Match (2006) (replies)
derbyc: <acirce>: e and é are different sounds in Hungarian. The relationship between o and ó (and ö-ő, u-ú, ü-ű) are different from the e-é relationship. 'Ó' is a (let's say 4 times) longer pronounced variation of the sound 'o'. So it sounds differently, but by using ...
   Nov-06-04 B Mate vs G Horvath, 2001 (replies)
derbyc: <Wonder how many times B Mate has heard this pun...> Perhaps never, because Máté (this is the correct spelling of his name in Hungarian) is an ordinary Christian name, while checkmate is called sakk-matt. They do not sound similar at all.
   Oct-14-04 Kramnik - Leko Classical World Championship Match (2004) (replies)
derbyc: <Acirce>: I accept your point, that always playing against Elo 2650 makes the average point of the opponent remains intact - this is simple matematics. (Anyway, I think after the matches the loser's Elo would drop), but the rating of the winner should increase, otherwise the ...
   Oct-14-04 Kramnik vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
derbyc: <morostyle: now what about this if they change score like this a "win" 2 points "Lose" o and "DRAW" 0.5 point maybe this scores can change the draw dilema> If you calculate who wins in a One on One championship, you can easily realize that the difference of the wins determines ...
   Oct-07-04 Kramnik vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
derbyc: <AlekhineViaOuija> I've found a few errors in your website: in the paragraph starting with "What happened next was extraordinary" you double the numbering of the 22th move (the secound one should be 23th and the further should be renumbered as well). Furthermore instead of 23. ...
   Oct-02-04 L Engels vs Maroczy, 1936 (replies)
derbyc: <EXIDE> Advanced chess is when humans - beside their brains - use computers as well. Google is our friend, I've found in the first hit of "Advanced Chess" this:
