   thegoldenband has kibitzed 333 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-08-22 A L'Ami vs L'Ami, 2012 (replies)
thegoldenband: After this game: "...let's just be friends."
   May-12-22 A Rothman vs G Katz, 1948 (replies)
thegoldenband: It's not like that on the TV when it's cool for Katz. (Coooooool for Katz.)
   Mar-15-22 Henry Cao
thegoldenband: Probably pronounced "tsao", which ruins an opportunity for humor: Cao has an interesting path to his 2-0 record on Chessgames. One win ends in a better, but not yet winning position, while the other is almost certainly a win on time in ...
   Feb-19-22 P Lafuente vs Shredder, 2005 (replies)
thegoldenband: Just to be clear, <erniecohen>, I wasn't claiming that the odds were "astronomical", but just paraphrasing <Gian-Carlo Pascutto>'s comments given above. (I see it as a reasonable paraphrase since, after all, he did mention a comet hitting Earth!) Pascutto is more ...
   Feb-17-22 Caruana vs G Meier, 2013 (replies)
thegoldenband: <newzild: <Catfriend> 12...Bc5 is not a legal move.> I think 15...Bc5 (etc.) was intended. How all the move numbers in that first line ended up off by three, I can but wonder.
   Feb-15-22 A Simutowe vs S Bergsson, 2008 (replies)
thegoldenband: Quoting User: socnegoti from Amon Simutowe : <a funny story at the reykjavik open in round four: Prior to the start of the round IM Amon Simutowe (2457 ZAM) knocked over a glass of water over the chessboard and after the chief arbiter Pall Sigurdsson helped him dry the ...
   Feb-02-22 Ljubojevic vs Meng-Kong Wong, 1990 (replies)
thegoldenband: Oh, I thought he meant the game collection! But of course that's the work of User: Phony Benoni -- so you're probably correct -- does that mean I should start fuming? I don't even have a fume hood.
   Jan-13-22 Ponomariov vs Wang Hao, 2007
thegoldenband: An absolutely magnificent piece of calculation from Wang Hao.
   Nov-26-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021
thegoldenband: <Ulhumbrus: Carlsen has employed the resource ...Na5 against White's king's bishop more than once. This resource seems useful to know about.> A prescient comment!
   Nov-12-21 Ivanchuk vs Wolff, 1993
thegoldenband: <Teyss> Ah, glad to know that it's been confirmed that voting is essentially meaningless. I wish they'd update the pages to make that clear, since it's better to own the farce than to conceal it (the farce = voting, of course). And yeah, I'm not at all surprised that the
