|Dec-30-15|| ||Richard Taylor: I think from memory that my computer after computer cogitating for some time preferred 8. ... Qh5+ and White has a small advantage but overall there are = chances I think. But as I say although I was in this position and won, it is not easy for Black.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||Richard Taylor: I think Lasker realized quite well that the classical principles didn't always apply. His style was complex and already modern, he also, like Alekhine et al, ustilized psychology, as in his way of steering Janowski into endgames which he said he hated. It seems to have worked. He also completely out-played Marshall. He could play great combinations as well as great endings but he did know when to apply classical ideas and indeed new ideas added to those ideas: but not formulas or set ideas. |
Sometimes, even in the opening where all seems equal, I have got inferior positions by castling or moving a B (or N) when something like taking a pawn or advancing one or moving a N to a better place would have lead to an almost won position.
In general, of course, quick development is good: but there are exceptions as in unbalanced lines and positions, and where a static-dynamic dialectic needs to be worked through...
|Dec-30-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: Another of my "puns" was selected! I am honored and humbled. This is 3 or 4 for me. Don't remember the exact number. |
Tears come to my eyes. Except, it is because I am laughing at my own GOTD title. Excuse me for being happy.
|Dec-30-15|| ||RookFile: Alekhine does a Morphy impersonation in this game. It's actually quite effective.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||thomastonk: Much has been said and written on this game, but in my eyes it is an example of utmost naïvety: a self-proclaimed world championship contender plays against a most dangarous attacker and with the king in the center and back in developement he moved his queen's bishop in 4 consecutive moves! One need not to be Morphy or Alekhine to punish this - almost any move wins!|
|Dec-30-15|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Good for you! It is a huge relief that we are spared another pathetically torturous & mind-numbing spin on a chess players' name|
|Dec-30-15|| ||OhioChessFan: If only we could be spared your daily whining about the pun of the day. This is beyond tiresome <morf>. Let it go. Really.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||kevin86: Nimzo is really stomped by AA|
|Dec-30-15|| ||jith1207: Ha ha.. the puns and the reactions.
I have become numb for both the puns and the complaints on them. In a way, it is all fun. Let it puncture your feelings & ego either way...
|Dec-30-15|| ||morfishine: <OhioChessFan> Look Dude, besides the fact that this is none of your effen business, you obviously have overlooked that I was complimenting <thegoodanarchist>. Going forward, you have three options: (1) Keep your fat mouth shut (2) Put me on ignore (3) both 1 & 2 |
I'll repeat this since your thick skull requires it: Going forward, you have three options: (1) Keep your fat mouth shut (2) Put me on ignore (3) both 1 & 2
Oh, and Happy New Year
|Dec-30-15|| ||dumbgai: I like good chessgames kibitz-fights.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||perfidious: <morf> will need a cudgel to penetrate the skull belonging to that great genius of the middle country, aka <ohiyuk>.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||Willber G: <OhioChessFan: If only we could be spared your daily whining about the pun of the day. This is beyond tiresome <morf>. Let it go. Really.>|
This is quite ironic considering your repeated criticism of my pun chosen for our match against GM Naiditsch ("Suffering from c6-ness") months after the game had finished. Actually, it won the Pun of the Year award on here, so somebody liked it. ;-)
|Dec-30-15|| ||Zaiyetz: This reminds me of the Ryder gambit if white had played 9 Be3.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||beatgiant: A battle over the merits of the puns? We need to create a meta-pun to describe this!|
"Puns bitten, twice sly"?
"A tale of two witties"?
"Punster divisions at Stalingrad?"
"Har-mageddon"? Or is it "Armagigglepun"?
|Dec-30-15|| ||jith1207: c6-ness was an awesome pun! Keep it Punked!|
|Dec-30-15|| ||jith1207: Those who usually complain only think about themselves. For example, Pun on chess players' names, however crappy it was, would help people like me to remember those players' name for that reason even if I had come across only a handful of times in my life. Similarly, Puns to games make it easier to remember some games, like that c6-ness. There could be so many reasons why some thing has become popular and CG is doing a right thing with the puns.|
Of course, there would be puns which are not in good taste for someone but we just need to get over that and look at the bright spots. Yes, I would agree seeing same complaints over and over again on many GOTDs throughout the year and again in new year would really be tiresome too. I am with <OhioChessFan> on that, but I would not bother too much either if somebody does not like something and continues to express that. I would become numb to that when I see the same thing over and over and even in this page, I read that comment and moved on without seeing the Kibitzer name, even if that should have struck me without seeing. Just Get over what you don't like and get over what others don't like as well if the criticism is not taken lightly. As said, it is all fun and makes for a great forum to see each other's reactions and how human mind differs from skull to skull.
|Dec-30-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <Willber> who doesn't have the courage of their own contradictions? Anyway, your reference to my "repeated" criticism is what, exactly? Whatever that might be, I see three in the past 12 months but who's counting, hard to search it, as opposed to the almost daily rants <morf> engages in? As for yours, it was a good pun, and I said so long ago.|
|Dec-30-15|| ||Abdel Irada: "Contradictions," "convictions": What's the difference?|
|Dec-31-15|| ||Willber G: <OhioChessFan> I'm not counting, but I do remember a few, this one being from September, nine months after the game was won:|
<Still hate the pun. "Hocus Pocus".....how could they <NOT> pick that........"Hocus Pocus" was the bomb.....and they didn't use it?!......alas.>
Anyway, each to their own, and HNY to everyone.
|Dec-31-15|| ||whiteshark: <beatgiant> No reason to punic.|
|Dec-31-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: < perfidious: <morf> will need a cudgel to penetrate the skull belonging to that great genius of the middle country, aka <ohiyuk>.>|
I gave up and put <OCF> on ignore. He might be smarter than Forrest Gump, but I am not convinced.
|Dec-31-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <tga: I gave up >
Yep, yep. I never get tired of winning. Never.
<and put <OCF> on ignore.>
I'm used to that from your side, both politics and religion. Can't stand the heat, run like a little girl from the kitchen.
<He might be smarter than Forrest Gump, but I am not convinced.>
Smart enough to waste you in debate. Next!
|Dec-31-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <jith: Just Get over what you don't like and get over what others don't like as well if the criticism is not taken lightly.>|
Okay, I'll try that for 2016.
|Dec-31-15|| ||jith1207: Peace and cheers. it's new year already in some parts of the world. Happy 2016!|
