|Jul-20-12|| ||OBIT: <FSR>Heh, barely. The stupid horse doesn't even know how to set up the board correctly, with the white-squared corner on the right.|
His strategy also leaves a lot to be desired. In the chess position he is analyzing at the end of the episode, the three knights that have moved from their starting position are all on the edge of the board.

Watched it last night.
Ricky Nelson is cool. Angie Dickinson is delectable. Martin is cool and it's the best I've seen him. Wayne is Wayne. Brennan was a nasty SOB in My Darling Clamantine .. but here he's a loveable old scroat.
It's a movie about belonging. About loyalty and sticking together.
I love it.
|Jul-20-12|| ||Hemetrt27: Thinking about getting fritz 13 the let's check looks very interesting to me anybody have it or any advice.|
|Jul-20-12|| ||FSR: <OBIT> Give the poor horse a break. He probably had no one to play against except Wilbur, and probably had no chess books to read. If he even <could> read, that is - a shocking number of horses are illiterate. And no Internet.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||OBIT: <FSR> Mr. Ed most certainly could read, as well as showing keen insight into the commodities markets. See the opening scene in the following episode:|
Without doubt, Ed had the analytic mind for chess. The problem had to be his owner - that cheapskate Wilbur probably refused to pony up (ha, pun!) for a subscription to Chess Informant.
|Jul-21-12|| ||FSR: <OBIT> I admit that actually made me laugh!|
|Jul-21-12|| ||FSR: <OBIT: ... Without doubt, Ed had the analytic mind for chess. The problem had to be his owner - that cheapskate Wilbur probably refused to pony up (ha, pun!) for a subscription to Chess Informant.>|
The last Mr. Ed episode aired on February 6, 1966. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister... Coincidentally(?), Chess Informant debuted in the same year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_... Mr. Ed probably was unable to get his hooves on a copy of Chess Informant before his eponymous TV series ended. Another possibility, though, is that Mr. Ed <did> read the inaugural issue of Informant and decided he needed to end his TV series in order to devote his full attention to chess. To paraphrase Garry Kasparov, "We (including Mr. Ed) are all children of Informant."
|Jul-21-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Iron Maiden, "Number Of The Beast" live '88:
|Jul-21-12|| ||Shams: Mr. Ed published a monograph of his games, actually. "And Black Is Equine".|
|Jul-21-12|| ||tpstar: There was talk about a chess match between Mr. Ed and a famous racehorse but nobody would pony up the funds.|
It's too bad - the audience would have been stuck like glue.
OK I'll stop there.
<Bezlitosci> Welcome to the site. =)
I could not track down the answer to your question. Notable games for each player are based on how many times they are included in members' Game Collections, but I don't remember how they decide which Game Collections go on the player page. Giri is a very promising talent, so keep working on your project anyway. =)
<tonsillolith> The Free Internet Chess Server is the best for online play, at least until this site gets it together. For unrated guest play, there is virtually no cheating. I said virtually. ;>D
|Jul-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: I saw this french film the other night; pretty good. <Queen to Play> |
Has a lot of chess scenes, including a blindfold KGA. About one-half of the film is set in front of a chessboard. This woman who cleans hotel rooms gets addicted to chess after watching american Kevin Kline play.
Chess is a sort of vehicle by which this woman gains entry to a better educated, perhaps wealthier set of people. In this film the chess patrons are depicted as those who have means and live well (we know the reality is often different).
This film might remind one of <Educating Rita> a film from the 80s about an East London working class girl who longs to better herself and not just be another baby machine. She studies English literature, tutored by the charming drunk Michael Caine, just as the chessplaying gal is tutored by the older, better educated Kevin Kline.

|Jul-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: <technical draw: Anatoly Moskin > Well, it's important for a man to have a hobby. I don't think we should rush to judge him.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||chancho: Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock - "Joy & Pain"
|Jul-21-12|| ||waustad: <heHateMe>I saw some clips from it. Actually I was doing a search on "Schachspielerin" and that is the German title of the movie.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||technical draw: From an article about Nelson Mandela:
<Tokyo Sexwale, a longtime friend and head of Mandela's foundation, coined a new word: "Mandela-ism: the spirit of selflessness, sacrifice ...">
|Jul-21-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: There's been alot of movie talk on here about guys like Deniro and Pacino but what about a man like Eric Braeden who has grinded it out daily for 26 years as Victor Newman on "Young and Restless"?
Y&R website describes Victor as "loving and protective toward family and loved ones, but if crossed, or if Victor feels that one is not living up to one's full potential then he can more than live up to the adjective that many have used to describe him--ruthless."
I'm not a soap fan but I've admired Eric's work ocassionally for many years.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: I cried when Erica finally won a day time emmy. I still get moist, just thinking about it...|
|Jul-21-12|| ||FSR: <HeMateMe: ... I still get moist, just thinking about it...>|
That's what Tokyo Sexwale said.
|Jul-21-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Today on my Forum I feature the artist Linda Ronstadt.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Mr. Ed's chess style was rather un-stable...|
|Jul-21-12|| ||andrewjsacks: I think I once stayed at Tokyo Sexwale's beach house.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||andrewjsacks: <HeMateMe> Educating Rita is a fine and under-appreciated film. Thanks for noting it here.|
|Jul-21-12|| ||Shams: <Wayne> You watch soaps so the rest of us don't have to.|
