Formerly posted as "Jim Bartle."

Starting today February 18 I am going to address all kibitzers either by their full usernames or by non-pejorative abbreviations.

saffuna: <gezafan> also refuses to respond to my question.

saffuna: <Even Howard Cosell did not get to see that much moolah.> Is Stephen A. Smith the new Cosell? He certainly has the obnoxious part down.

saffuna: <Yet, at one point even appears the exchange and two pawns up, where the CG computer assesses as only holdable at 0.00. Which tells you something. And apparently is proven that it wasn't holdable.> Stockfish certainly has its limitations. Especially in the endgame from what I ...

saffuna: <susan>, you're pretty selective about what posts to delete. At least someone had the decency to delete <diceman>'s post celebrating Paul Pelosi getting hit in the head with a hammer.

saffuna: I'm sure there's plenty left to do. Not simple.
   Feb-01-23 Caruana vs J van Foreest, 2023
saffuna: <To me it's a kind of psyche job, tricking black into the blunder 25..h4? > Very likely. A nothing move to tempt black.

saffuna: I don't understand that.
