I am a maths student from Sydney University. I am a big fan of chess although I am not very good at it.

My all-time favourite chessgames quote:
Russian Championship Superfinal (2005) (kibitz #1137) Referring to the following game:
Tomashevsky vs Kramnik, 2005

Another good quote:

Sebastien Feller (this was regarding a player who was later found guilty of cheating and banned for 3 years)

   Oct-25-15 Kramnik vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
gazzawhite: <Fishy> Carlsen helped Anand (not Kramnik) in his WC match against Topalov. In fact, Carlsen also helped Anand in the 2008 WC match (against Kramnik).

gazzawhite: What a disgrace.
   Jan-20-15 N Zhukova vs M Rakic Vulicevic, 2014
gazzawhite: Actually it's a draw after 181...Kd1
   Sep-10-13 D Lobzhanidze vs Azmaiparashvili, 2007
gazzawhite: <kevin86: This game went on about 27 moves too long-as black could have claimed a 50 move draw at move 110.> No he couldn't, since he moved a pawn at move 109.
   Aug-08-13 Mamedyarov vs I Kurnosov, 2009 (replies)
gazzawhite: The reason why nobody publicly supported Mamedyarov was because his accusations were completely unfounded. His response letter didn't at all address Kurnosov's counterpoints to Mamedyarov's claims that he (Kurnosov) left the board after every move. Basically, Mamedyarov made up ...

gazzawhite: <galdur> Thanks!
   Jan-23-12 C Wallis vs G Jones, 2012
gazzawhite: After move 74, white had a pretty mate in 6: 75.♔f6 h4 76.♘f8 ♔h6 77.♗g6 and mates with the knight on f5, f7, or g4 in 3 more moves, e.g. 77...h3 78.♘d7 h2 79.♘e5 h1(♕) 80.♘f7#
   Jan-21-12 Lagno vs D Harika, 2012
gazzawhite: 58.♔h7? gives away the win. The only winning move was 58.♗e4 (followed by ♗g6)

gazzawhite: <parmetd> True.
