Jan-27-04  Benjamin Lau: Okay, great, I was making sure I understood the rules of chess. Thank god it's as I thought it is. ^_^
Jan-27-04  sleepkid: Benjamin: Yes, but tommorow's puzzle is being presented on a Wednesday and as we ALL know the double check rule is divided in half and added to itself on Wednesdays, making it a triple check. Of course, since the game that the puzzle is from was played on a Tuesday during a Leap Year in the last century, it is up for debatable whether or no this rule can be applied as such. We'll have to consult rules subsection J appendix ZQ line 4343.33MMizadork/P (but of course, we can only consult the rulebook on every third Saturday, so we'll have to wait a bit before we can confirm this solution.)

Tamar: Oh! I completely forgot about the reverse time fluxations. Where is my flux capacitor? Who stole my Tardis? Did I really say up for debatable? It must be an abberationality in the coherant grid system of the speech patternboxoperational thing-a-ma-bob.

Jan-27-04  Benjamin Lau: Ooops, sorry sleepkid, I had to borrow it for a game. I'll give it back to you after I use it for my acorn piece.
Jan-27-04  rythm: hey cocky talchess 2003!y dont you meet me at yahoo.
Jan-27-04  sleepkid: ...yeah! And then meet me in front of the Louvre for a fistfight! . . . or a vicious game of tiddlywinks, and then I'll go draw moustaches on your favourite painting. . .

...yeah!

Jan-28-04  Catfriend: <sleepkid> I know you know it, but your sense of humour is delicious!!!!!!!!
Jan-28-04  sleepkid: tastes like tacos...
Jan-28-04  Catfriend: LOL Yam-Yam... The tiddlywinks-champ strikes again! Ten portions of humour for 4999.99 $! You say it's too much? Well, otherwise you'd have cheap humour...
Jan-28-04  clendenon: they look like tacos too.

  Marius: How does 13.Nd4 prevent 13. ..Bh6?
Aug-18-04  sneaky pete: <Marius> AA's original note reads <Erschwert die feindliche Entwicklung, insbesondere durch Entwertung der Diagonale c8-h3>. This last part has been translated in English descriptive as the diagonal QB1-KR6 and now back into algebraic notation erroneously as the diagonal h6-c1. <The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak>.

  Marius: to sneaky pete : thank you , it clearer
Oct-25-04  dac1990: It's incredible that Alekhine was able to do this blindfolded and play on 27 other boards simultaneously.

  Calli: <dac1990> See Benzol's note on the first page about Alekhine "doctoring" the game. He gave one version in "On the Road" and another in "My Best Games", neither being correct.
Nov-08-04  mparry: perhaps an easy-looking problem after u c the solution and think OH-DUH!!! which is y so many claim 2 hav seen it quickly. but with all of the possibilities, it really is tuf 2 find the correct 1
Dec-19-04  who: <Chessgames.com> in the notes to move 13 it says something about the black bishop on the C diagonal. There is no longer a black dark squared bishop.
Dec-19-04  who: 8...Ne4 seems good.
May-06-05  soberknight: After the checkmate, Black was no longer a "Free man".

  Benzol: Glad to see that the name has been corrected here. Now all that needs to be corrected is the gamescore.

  Phony Benoni: Note to 13.Nd4: <"Preventing an effective development of the Black Bishop on the diagonal h6-c1.">

Was it necessary to spend a move doing this? I don't see how Black's bishop can control that diagonal in any case.

  Calli: <Phony Benoni> see Sneaky Pete's note of August 2004. It should read c8-h3 diagonal.
Sep-02-09  WhiteRook48: insult to injury
Dec-20-09  ToTheDeath: I first saw this mate in Fred Reinfeld's 1001 Tricky Checkmates.
