   Dec-25-20 A Brkic vs B Kalezic, 2016 (replies)
thegoldenband: <Cheapo by the Dozen>, there was a movie adaptation in the 1990s starring Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, and Kate Winslet. If one is fond of any or all of those folks then the film, at least, shows up on the radar. No idea what any of it has to do with this ...
   Dec-17-20 Gaston Needleman
thegoldenband: <Billy Vaughan: The only way to beat Needleman is with <Gemini Man>'s powers!> Underrated joke, that!
   Dec-12-20 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1853 (replies)
thegoldenband: "Too Hi to Get Over, Too Mo to Get Hunder" would probably have been my pick. (...what, you don't like it? Wanna be startin' somethin'? "Too h1 to Get Over etc." also a possibility -- lot of action on the h1-square in this game.) In any event I appreciate finding out about ...
   Dec-02-20 Deep Thought vs Bebe, 1990
thegoldenband: <OhioChessFan: Man, I just spent 15 minutes searching for an appropriate game for that pun...a mere 2 years too late. Since Bebe lost, I suppose it should be "Somebody Put Bebe in a Corner"> Great minds etc., and I'm still disappointed they haven't used it! But I do ...
   Nov-28-20 D Saxton vs Worth / Tweed, 1935 (replies)
thegoldenband: <Breunor: NM, 20 Qh6 Nxf6; white doesn't win a piece. Stockfish scores it as even (-0.14).> I assume 21. Qh6 was the intended move number (after 20...Qe8), after which the NM's comments are correct and Black is toast. It's surprising that Saxton -- a state champion and ...
   Nov-16-20 B Modr vs V Benes, 1981
thegoldenband: Some of y'all were clearly not born to be wild.
   Nov-12-20 A Nickel vs P Dahms, 1989 (replies)
thegoldenband: <perfidious: We are so fortunate as to have a Reinfeld manque on site who lectures all and sundry for free, yet whose most rudimentary analyses very often come a cropper.> If you're referring to the person to whom I think you're referring, has he even been around lately?
   Nov-11-20 D Derakhshani vs Z Urbonaviciute, 2013 (replies)
thegoldenband: Brutal game, in which White plays the part of one relentlessly tough cookie! The Kan is a rock-solid variation for Black, and yet paradoxically it often seems like Black's position is poised on a knife-edge where one slip can lead to lethal tactical fireworks. I tried playing ...
   Nov-06-20 S Abu Sufian vs T A Vakhidov, 2001 (replies)
thegoldenband: <goodevans: What was <14.Bd3> all about?> I'd guess White hallucinated that 16. Bxh7+ won the exchange after ...Kxh7, but overlooked ...Nxh7 when White's bishop on g5 hangs. Or maybe he thought it was possible to save the bishop and gain a tempo on the Black queen ...
   Sep-27-20 Hort vs Kavalek, 1963 (replies)
thegoldenband: <Check It Out: Lub gives love a bad name.> I'd prefer "You give Lub a bad name", myself, but it's not a vlast difference.
