Jul-30-08  Morphyisgod: <jackmandoo> YAY SEINFELD REFERNCE! !
Dec-14-08  chessamateur: Shortly after this game Clemens was investigated upon the suspicion of taking performance enhancing drugs.
Dec-14-08  wolfmaster: Yeah, wackmanpoo, I feel sorry for you and your tree grieving. Get a life!
Dec-14-08  maxi: What a beautiful mate!

  OBIT: Sorry to interrupt the fun, but I thought I'd throw in some analysis to this game. :)

After 12...O-O, as suggested by <Bob726>, the sacrifice 13. Nxh7+! looks very promising. After 13...Kxh7 (clearly, refusing the sacrifice by 13...Re8 won't slow down White's attack) 14. Qh5+ Kg8 15. Re4, White threatens Rh4. The best try to stop the mate appears to be 15...Nf5 (not 15...g6 16. Qh6 Nf5 17. Qxg6+), but then 16. Bg5 looks very strong; for example, 16...Qe8 17. Nd5!, with no defense to 18. Nf6+ gxf6 19. Bxf6 and mates. After 13. Nxh7, does Black have a defense?

Dec-15-08  patzer of patzers: <syracrophy> In your variation (something I was just wondering about, thanks!), 23. Ne4+ wins more quickly.

  Domdaniel: <Jackmandoo> - <during dinner we do what is called "The airing of the greivences", which we go around the table telling everyone what bothers us about each other>

Your spelling, for starters.

  OhioChessFan: Only 2 spelling mistakes in one 3 syllable word. What's the problem?

Back to the game. Isn't Ba3 a nice move? Look at all it does.

Jan-14-09  bunbun: Looks like after 2 years some folks are still getting punked by jackmandoo...man, I miss that goofball!
Jan-15-09  Nina Myers: A Jackdumboo is never late... nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
Jan-15-09  blacksburg: <Shortly after this game Clemens was investigated upon the suspicion of taking performance enhancing drugs.>

looks like clemens is gonna have an appointment with the grand jury. perhaps this game needs an asterisk?

Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: Great game by Clemens.
Jan-31-09  WhiteRook48: at least we have got to include these guys' first names
Mar-17-09  WhiteRook48: 4 knights bring about the apocalypse!
Mar-17-09  Chicago Chess Man: "It's a Festivus for the rest of us!"

"And now for the airing of grievances. I've got a lot of problems with you people!"

I sure do miss Seinfeld.

Mar-17-09  Open Defence: dont forget the feats of strength

  parmetd: 16... Bxd4 seems to be a big blunder. It appears that 16... Nxd4 might lead to equality but what caught my eye is what happens on 16... Rg8 17. Ne6+ Ke8 now white has a slight plus but how best to realize it? 18 Bg5 or 18 Qh5+ or 18 dxe5

  parmetd: on second thought maybe white is still winning after 18 dxe5 Rxg5 19 exd6 cxd6 20 Ne4
Oct-30-11  sevenseaman: One of the most amazing mates I've seen.

Nov-23-11  sevenseaman: Trun tran ... An expert horseman! Anybody who can play his knights like that has to be a winner.

Thanks <JoergWalter>
