|Aug-12-03|| ||magpie: Who was Hruby? Never heard of him! |
|Aug-24-04|| ||iron maiden: A nice example of opening lines when you have the two bishops. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Another Chessgames pun. I guess we should be thankful that our gracious host didn't write "Hruby Cements Mason." So is there anyone in the database named Wednesday?|
As for the game itself, Hruby's moves from 17-25 were wonderful. If you had shown me the game without the players' names and asked me to guess, I would have picked Capablance as White, and I can think of no higher praise.
|Aug-24-04|| ||checkpat: Can a native explain the jokes to a
frog like me?
This game is amazingly modern in
a romantic time: closed lines, N on the rim...
|Aug-24-04|| ||Calchexas: Technically, this is a Dutch line, right? (after the 4th move) Or am I totally off? |
|Aug-24-04|| ||KampongBoy: Checkpat, the Beatles had a hit song (weren't they all, "Ruby Tuesday." |
|Aug-24-04|| ||acirce: You must mean Rolling Stones. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||kevin86: "Good-Bye Ruby Tuesday". I believe both the fab four and the stones sang the song to a hit.|
It does look like a Dutch-it is so hard to classify openings,because they transpose so easily.
|Aug-24-04|| ||Chessical: The Beatles never sang any Rolling Stone's song, and it's a Dutch. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||sneaky pete: <KampongBoy> Are you a Javaanse Jongen? |
|Aug-24-04|| ||DanielBryant: Ruby Tuesday's is also an American restaurant chain. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||themindset: yes, although the first move appears as english, this clearly transposes into a dutch. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||Zenchess: Speaking of rock music terminology, we could call Hruby a one-hit wonder because of all the wonderful games he played in 1882 and none thereafter.|
<An Englishman> I would have picked Petrosian because of the exchange sac or Rubinstein because of his handling of the two B's.
|Aug-24-04|| ||Benzol: The Rolling Stones did sing a Beatles song - 'I Wanna Be Your Man'. |
|Aug-24-04|| ||square dance: 'i wanna be your man' was actually the song that got the rolling stones rolling, err going. so not only are the beatles the greatest band ever they helped open the door for probably the next greatest band ever. |

I had always thought that "Not Fade Away", first recored by Buddy Holly, had the honor of first putting the Rolling Stones on the charts.
|Aug-24-04|| ||KampongBoy: Hi <sneaky peak> No, but love Lat's work. Notice fewer comments on the game than on music! |
|Aug-25-04|| ||square dance: <sbc> 'i wanna be your man' was released nov. 1st 1963 and went to #12 on the charts. 'not fade away' was released sometime during, or following oct. 1964. check out these links...http://www.keno.org/stones_lyrics/i...|

you're definitely correct (I had figured you were). I just learned, from that second link, that the Stones first toured with the Everly Brothers and Bo Diddley. How cool is that! I also learned that Mick Jagger was exactly double my age last year.
Thanks for the links and for rectifying my misconception.
|Aug-25-04|| ||checkpat: Thanks for educating me in pop
music. I could pretend I am too young to know but that would be
a white lie...
