|Jan-17-03|| ||THE GENERAL: what do red and white bone chess men look like? are sets available? |
|Mar-12-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: Had Bogart played 8.Be6 or Bg4 before placing his queen knight on d7, his bishop wouldn't have been obstructed. I like his play anyway, and I haven't even seen any of his movies! |
|Sep-04-05|| ||WMD: Where in Africa, the Congo?|
|Sep-04-05|| ||paladin at large: Good question - perhaps near the set of "The African Queen", if it was shot on location, for which Bogart won the academy award ca. 1952.|
|Sep-04-05|| ||WMD: <Directed on location (on the Ruiki in the then Belgian Congo and the British protectorate of Uganda) by John Huston (it was his ninth feature film and fifth film with Bogart), the film was nominated for four Academy Awards - Best Actress (Katharine Hepburn), Best Screenplay (James Agee and John Huston), Best Director, and Best Actor (Humphrey Bogart). Bogart was the only one to win - the film's sole Oscar.>|
|Apr-21-06|| ||HannibalSchlecter: I highly recommend "Casablanca", a classic that still stands the test of time, and "The Caine Mutiny" which got Bogey an Oscar nomination which he richly deserved.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Clint Eastwood made a movie based on the experience of filming "The African Queen," called "White Hunter Black Heart."|
I second "Casablanca" enthusiastically, as well Big Sleep, Key Largo, Have and Have Not, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Maltese Falcon, Petrified Forest...
|May-19-06|| ||moronevich: Bogart and Dr.Paul Limbos of the Institute for tropical diseases in Antwerp, played multiple games,invariably
won of course by Limbos( a master level player acoording to standards of that era),nonwithstanding the fact that Hepburn tried to get him drunk on whisky so that he would loose.She was unaware apparently of the fact that belgians tend to live in a bourgondian style so that they only got increasingly frustrated in their vain efforts to destabilise their opponent.These facts were told to me by dr.Limbos himself,both of us being regular visitors of the chess club in the Billard Palace in Antwerp,Belgium.|
|Jun-16-06|| ||BadTemper: 22 Qh6+ looks less complicated. Why delve into tactics when the queen is hanging?|
|Jun-16-06|| ||BadTemper: oh wait. its forced in 2.. nevermind|
|Aug-21-06|| ||lordazol4: I liked last move. Too many players prefers gainig the queen but h5 is absolute solution.Paul limpos was interesting player!!|
|Mar-12-07|| ||AAAAron: Bogart's got moves!!!!|
|Apr-28-07|| ||al wazir: OK, let's say Bogart doesn't resign. He's a tough guy, not a quitter, you know? So he plays 22...Qxf4. Now if white plays 23. Qe7+, after 23...Kg6 he can capture the black ♖, 24. Qxd8. But then black gets a perpetual with 24...Qg3+ 25. Kf1 Qf3+, etc.|
Maybe white plays 23. hxg5+ instead. After 23...Qxh5 24. Qd7+ Kg6, the black ♖ is safe. So that doesn't work either.
How about 23. Qh6+ then? No good; after 23...Kf7, all white can do is move the ♕ back to h7.
White's best strategy is to play 23. Re7, with a threat of mate next. Black gets a lot of checks, but eventually the white ♔ hides behind the ♘.
Conclusion: As recorded, it's not a win yet. But if white had played 22. Qh6+, he would have skewered the ♕ and won easily.
|Apr-28-07|| ||euripides: <22...Qxf4 23.Qe7+ Kg6> 24.h5+ Kh6 25.Qf6+ Kh7 26.Re7+ Kg8 27.Qg7 mate looks conclusive. Anyway, I guess Bogart decided to think for both of them.|
|Apr-28-07|| ||al wazir: <euripides>: Thanks. Limbos was good enough to spurn the win of a ♕ for the prospect of checkmate, and Bogart was good enough to know he had lost. It just goes to show: the stronger the player, the earlier he resigns.|
|May-24-08|| ||BISHOP TAL: I just watched A&E biography on Bogie he started the rat pack, he liked drinkin and his big passion was sailing. Not 1 word about chess I heard he drew reshevsky can anybody confirm that and is there a record of it.|
|May-24-08|| ||Marmot PFL: <BISHOP TAL:> Judging from this game a draw with Sammy is hard to believe (unless he was a major Bogart fan).|
|May-26-08|| ||BISHOP TAL: <marmot PFL:> I agree marmot, but chessgames says he did it in a simultanous exhibtion maybe he was a bogie fan lol,like to see more games by him.|
|May-26-08|| ||Benzol: <BISHOP TAL> <Marmot PFL> Have you read my post of January 3rd 2008 on the Bogart thread?|
|May-27-08|| ||BISHOP TAL: I have now tks Benzol. thats somthin ud think they would mention in a 45 biography. hollywood legend drew former united stated champion even if it was simulatanous.|
|Sep-14-09|| ||RandomVisitor: "The fundamental things apply / As time goes by."|
|Sep-14-09|| ||whiteshark: 13...Nf6 would have led to another game. Why do people sometimes place their pieces on the wing opposite to the 'action side'?|
|Sep-14-09|| ||alayo: 14.Re7 1-0|
|Sep-14-09|| ||paavoh: <al wazir> <"...It just goes to show: the stronger the player, the earlier he resigns..."> Interesting advice, I should try this in the future. What do you suggest as a proper move number to tip one's King? Let's see if my improved performance will then compensate the rating loss from those early resignations - all this jokingly, of course... ;-)|
|Sep-14-09|| ||whiteshark: <alayo: 14.Re7 1-0> Is that a direct response to my suggested <13...Nf6>? If so, <14...Bxe7> is my answer. :D|
