i love brent. anyway why did you come up with that list, did you make character up for a chess novel you are going to write?
Bizarre how all the names are Anglo male. Could we at least get a Vladimir, a Luis and an Alexandra?
ok,.. I'll try
Alexandra --> Prefers bishops over knights
Luis --> Knows the basic rules. Poor loser. Better at coaching football
Vladimir --> Prefers to play at night
Antoinette --> The bitch of the board
Afaf --> One of the pretiest female chessplayers
Alia --> Sings while playing
Dacio --> Plays romanticly
Daisy --> Does more quaking then playing
Dora --> Adventerous moves
Jill --> Plays at home against her husband because he likes chess. She honestly doesn't care.
Lakeisha --> Always shows up on tournaments with her lovely sister Leticia
Laura --> Cheats, kicks you under the table, pulls hair, lies.
Madonna --> A bit of a showoff
Mae --> Yes you can.
Mathilda --> Unbeatable. Off the board very nice girl
Olga --> Bold player, will go for an attack on the king every time.
Ventura --> Content with a draw, also content with losing.
Vikki --> Not really good at chess, keeps beating male opposition for some reason
Xen(i)a --> Warrior of and on the board
Yelena --> Average player, lets her children win to let them gain confidence. Her husband loves that, but is unknowing that she treats him the same.
Yvette --> Keeps moving the opponents pieces.
Zelda --> Keeps losing the Queen
Could this be done with nicknames or is it limited to names only?
lol, I dont think that this is meant as a serious post...So do as you please :-D
a few of them were so funny.i burst into laughter.thanks.
Hah. And um...thanks. :P
Aww was disapointed in my description (Michael) haha . Probably somewhere inbetween Timothy and Wesley. Fun thread though
what about isaac which is my name
Isaac - Wants his name defined in a thread on chess.com
Fun thread! Enjoyed reading through the descriptions for all the names.
Looks like my name should be Chad Czervik.
Isaac - Wants his name defined in a thread on chess.com
Come on give me a real definition
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!
