    Could this be done with nicknames or is it limited to names only?

    I'm a Robert.  While I'll happily attack the kingside if the opportunity presents itself, I usually only do so after castling.

    My first impression was that this list might be a description of the lobotomized computer "players" in the Chessmaster series, so I first checked to see if Muldoon was listed.  I checked my name only after seeing that he wasn't there.

    I see Magnus in the list, but are most of these names actual Chess.com players?

    I'm no hustler, I just blunder lots of games, but manage to play better when I concentrate on not making them.

    I know a Christopher who plays chess -- however he isn't a gracious loser (quite the opposite, actually) and isn't very easy to beat either!
