   horticulture has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-18-05 J Viberg vs H Horta, 1989 (replies)
horticulture: Hey! A game named after me, LOL! And to think that as late as 1928, according to Tarrasch, 3 d4 was considered the "refutation" to the Petrov Defence...
   Jun-26-05 Adams vs Hydra, 2005 (replies)
horticulture: <valerianus: I am pleased to announce that the Master of Ceremonies for the Douglaston Chess Congress Championship for 2005 will add a moment of silence in the opening ceremony for the "fall of mankind to those silicon beasts, as exemplified by the unfortunate and ...
   Jan-15-05 John Cochrane (replies)
horticulture: I'm sure you all know the theory by which everyone is "six steps away" from everyone else. In one issue of Chess Life, Andy Soltis tries to link himself to Morphy and does so in four steps...but he was aiming for three. This is my best link to Cochrane but I'm sure people ...
   May-21-04 Joel Benjamin vs J Eade, 1999 (replies)
horticulture: I find it a terrible shame that the author of one of the most user-friendly beginner's chess books (namely, Chess For Dummies by IDG Books) has absolutely no kibiting! (sighs)
   May-03-04 S Calthrop vs Paulsen, 1857 (replies)
horticulture: Paulsen was a pretty good player, but in his heyday in America, his opening repertoire was a little weird, to say the least.
   May-03-04 J Grundy vs J A Congdon, 1880
horticulture: As of late, any Scandinavian retreats of the Queen to her home square have been virtually if not completely emasculated from the province of decent chess.
   May-03-04 Reshevsky vs Geller, 1953 (replies)
horticulture: Poor Reshevsky...
   May-03-04 W Napier vs E Delmar, 1904
horticulture: So the great Napier who barely fell to the great Lasker can only draw one of the more pathetic chess "masters" of the late Victorian Era. Great...=)
   Apr-30-04 Radjabov vs Karpov, 2002 (replies)
horticulture: It's funny that the whole world went wild as Radjabov beat Kasparov, but when he beats Karpov in a slightly more legitimate fashion, no one notices. Remember that Karpov was still the world's undisputed #2 until 1995, and that his rivalry with Kasparov is of a far greater ...
   Apr-30-04 Bisguier vs Soltis, 1974 (replies)
horticulture: One quick and painless draw never hurt anyone, literally.
