<No comment on this nonsense, except that I beg that we don't turn this page into a fight about the topic or the poster.>
And the laughs just keep coming! I say <AJ> should just leave in protest.
Go ahead and boycott the site, <AJ>. Don't stay on our account.

|Oct-01-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: "After great pain, a formal feeling comes", by Emily Dickinson|
After great pain, a formal feeling comes –
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –
The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’
And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?
The Feet, mechanical, go round –
A Wooden way
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –
A Quartz contentment, like a stone –
This is the Hour of Lead –
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow –
First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –

<vikram2791> Great puzzle!
A useful rule of thumb is how your King should never be your most advanced piece, at least in the opening. =)
|Oct-02-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's how The Chicago Bears approached this game in song. ; P|

|Oct-02-12|| ||galdur: <I saw an accident that could have been bad, but wasn't. In fact, it was funny. By the airport, in a motel parking lot I spotted a limo lying on its back. Limo drivers think they are better drivers than taxi drivers but this made it totally clear. They are not better, just longer.|
This driver had rolled his stretch limo. How do you roll a stretch limo with that long base and very heavy chassis? We got to laugh because the driver was out laughing and there were no passengers or ambulances, just a motorcycle cop taking his helmet off, to stay a while.
Every time I drove by the scene to take people to the airport, more and more cops arrived to enjoy a look. Too bad this was before cell phone cameras because this was such an oddity in our world. Again and again I went by trying to figure how he did it. Then I saw the car's location with new eyes and I think I know the only way he could have managed it.
I think the driver entered the parking lot of the motel a little bit too fast for this driveway ramp. The entry angle could very possibly start the car to rock. And then I noticed broken bricks on a flower planter, suggesting he hit this, too. A bigger bump so soon after the other bump, and at just the right time, would give the limo two large flexes and possibly rock it up and even over. Years before, I had seen a stunt driver do it on TV, on purpose.
Hollywood stunt driver, Joey Chittwood, showed everybody how he rolled cars up on two wheels and drove them this way. He would overfill the tires on the driver’s side and run the car up a short ramp at just the right speed. This would rock the car up, intentionally. This crazy stunt was visually freaky but was easy for one who practiced it. This limo driver guy was not expecting it, and he was now waiting for his boss to show up. I drove on.>

|Oct-02-12|| ||shivasuri4: <vikram2791>, white starts from that position with Bc4+. If black replies with Kd4, Qd3 is mate. If he instead plays Kxc4, Qb3+ Kd4, Qd3#.|

|Oct-02-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: I notice that deeply unpleasant narcissist, liar, thief, plagiarist and so much more "Life Master AJ" is throwing a pity party for himself. In his newest rants, he is calling one of cg. com's founders an idiot!|
Oh poor christian spirit. Smote, so misunderstood....
You are in a box AJ and we love it. No more rantings, no more filthy aspersions, no more rants on how good you are because you beat a 12 year old girl in a meaningless tourney.
|Oct-02-12|| ||perfidious: <Simon> Let him inhabit his little world as we do ours-noticed Mr Freeman responded to his foolishness on the CG page already-the unkindest cut of all for the kibitzer in question is no-one taking notice of his existence, which is far worse from his point of view than coming under attack.|
|Oct-02-12|| ||diceman: <tpstar: <Q: What is the name of the chessmaster who was notorious for setting traps?> |
A: Trappy McSwindler>
My favorite was Alexander Ploy.
He played the La Brea Tar Pit variation of the Sicilian.
|Oct-02-12|| ||tpstar: Trappy had a cousin - Tricky McShyster.
Besides chess professionals, I would bet street hustlers have memorized all of the opening traps and routinely use the ones targeting f7 and f2.
