Why did you choose your chess name - what's the best one you've seen?

r4chess2

I get to show off my geeky nature and I'm not sure that's a good thing. My username was an attempt to combine Star Wars and chess. So, in Star Wars, you had the astromech droid, R2D2, so... My favorite username is penguingm1. I assumed Andrew Tang took up that name because he was a Batman fan, but in one of his videos, he commented he simply liked penguins. I thought that was the sweetest and most honest reason for a username I've ever heard.

I stole the name from my favorite localish soccer/football team.

Mine is from a short story by Lord Dunsany about people who come into possession of a crystal that gives them supernaturally accurate chessplaying powers.  Unfortunately, the gem is cursed and they are slowly damning themselves each time they use it, so they always play together so they won't have to be alone in Hell.

flabbi

Reverse psychology.  I chose the name "flabbi" deliberately to create the impression of weakness.

I worked on that show as Leica Edit (that's cartoon-talk for "Choreographer").

Yes, I remember :-)

Yeah? So what? That doesn't automatically mean hes a bad player or his games never happened. Take your retardation elsewhere.

Wow.  Triggered.  Unsure why though.  Just stating a fact.

Because you made a unnecessary comment. Bobby Fischer is dead, doesnt leave chess any more than that, so lets all just ignore what he's accomplished. Thats why I thought your comment was stupid.

nobody said to anything about ignoring their accomplishments.  how did you read that in?  micro-aggression much?  you definitely need yomama.
