|Nov-08-15|| ||OhioChessFan: What <FSR> said. What <FSR> said.|
|Nov-08-15|| ||RFW3: <perfidious> Kansas were far from a one-hit wonder: the title cut of <Point of Know Return> and <Dust in the Wind> were also hits from that album.|
True, they were not one hit wonders. But a slight correction here, Carry on Wayward Son and What's on My Mind were from the Leftoverture album.
|Nov-08-15|| ||HeMateMe: technically, it's not a pun. Neither was the one you claimed authorship for some time ago, "How to beat Edmar Mednis."|
|Nov-08-15|| ||mass61: Oh wow! spassky clearly didnt see it coming and probably almost fainted when keres made that queen sacrifice.|
|Nov-09-15|| ||Domdaniel: <TGA> - <My favorite 1-hit wonder was dexys midnight runners>|
Sorry, but Dexy's had at least two hits that I remember ... 'Come on Eileen' and, uh, the other one...
|Nov-09-15|| ||kevin86: A great finish! The coming windmill with chop up black's position like a chainsaw!|
|Nov-09-15|| ||Howard: Uhhhh......Kevin86, was that remark an intended pun on your part ?!|
If you don't know what I'm referring to, the guy who played the murderer in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, just died at 68 ! Did you know that when you submitted that comment ?

You clearly have an air-tight case :)
|Nov-09-15|| ||Domdaniel: <TGA> Heh, yes ... it was 'Geno', wasn't it? < They are best known for their songs "Come On Eileen" and "Geno", both of which peaked at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart.>|
Another one hit wonder: Lieutenant Pigeon.
|Nov-09-15|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Dexy's qualified Over Here as a one-hitter, but of course you are correct: they did well on the auld soil, same as Amii Stewart with her cover of <Knock on Wood>, her only hit in the USA, who enjoyed more success abroad.|
|Nov-11-15|| ||morfishine: You are all correct about Kansas, they are not a one-hit wonder. I was too harsh. But here, there's a radio station that always BLABS: WDBO "Where its all about the Music" then if they say "And here's Kansas" its always that 'Carry on Wayward Son' song, and I quickly change the channel before I throw up|
|Nov-11-15|| ||perfidious: <morf> It is the same way here, along with <Point of Know Return> and <Dust in the Wind>, or the hard rock station which plays the same 8-10 tracks of Led Zeppelin (amongst other groups) as if no other music by that band has ever existed.|
|Nov-13-15|| ||morfishine: <perfidious> I guess we can only choose our own music, play it, enjoy it, and ignore anything external|
|Mar-01-17|| ||Saniyat24: Is Spassky's record solid in this line?|
|Mar-01-17|| ||Saniyat24: ...and what a dramatic ending by Keres...!|
|Mar-01-17|| ||Retireborn: <Saniyat24> He achieved a couple of draws, but has been more often seen on the White side of this variation, with mixed results eg|
Spassky vs Tal, 1979
Spassky vs Ribli, 1980
|Mar-01-17|| ||sudoplatov: The position after 9... c5 is important for the theory of the Queen's Gambit and other opens that transpose into it. Sometimes the same position occurs but with the Black QN on c6. White has e2 for the Queen but Black lacks a corresponding square. The natural square c7 may run into a White Rook on c1. However here, Keres develops the Rook on d1 to push d5. White has the initiative in a symmetrical position.|
|Dec-03-17|| ||tpstar: A picture of them playing, but not this game:
The demonstration board up top shows a different position.
<Harrwitz Bishops> Very strong!
<One hit wonder> Macarena!
|Mar-29-18|| ||Toribio3: Coordination of chess pieces adapted by Keres in demolishing Spassky's king. This is a masterpiece!|
|Jun-12-18|| ||Penguincw: Video analysis of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcC....|
|Sep-18-18|| ||Mramire1: 30...Kxg7 31.Nxd7+ Kg8 32.Nf6+ Kf7 33.Nd5+ +-|
|Sep-18-18|| ||SuperPatzer77: 1. Qxg7+!! Kxg7, 2. Nxd7+ Kg8, 3. Nf6+! Kf7, 4. Nd5+ winning the Black Queen back and that’s why Boris Spassky resigned|
|Jul-21-19|| ||RadioBoy: Gadzooks! The spectator behind Keres is smoking!|
|Jul-21-19|| ||Olavi: <RadioBoy> The picture is from Tallinn 1975: Keres vs Spassky, 1975 The spectator is Hillar Kärner, another participant.|
|Jul-21-19|| ||Retireborn: <Olavi> Thanks for that. The last time they played each other, as Keres was in the last year of his life then. I thought the spectator might be Gipslis, nice to have him correctly identified.|
