|Dec-01-10|| ||Zozeke: So this opening has a name? Enlightened with it, I wonder who is that 'Damiano' guy and what he did to popularize 2...f6. Because opening that carries his immrotal name seems to be rather fashionable, especially among low-level players.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Chessmensch: I agree. This was truly awful. Black reminds me of how I played when I was a ten-year-old kid at camp. His only good "move" was his 19th.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||daveinsatiable: I'm with jrlepage, making this game GOTD is an insult.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||KKDEREK: 2 - f6 ?..So anti-intuitive exposing the king that early..|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Check It Out: WTH? GOTD? OMG. ROTFLMAO. I'm BMGWL. IMHO, CG, CWOT.
BOTOH it's BTN.
OTOH, WIBNI a VWP GOTD was the NORM?
<gars>: I was just goofing around, which seems apropos for this game of the day. Here's what it means:
What the heck? Game of the day? Oh my God. Roll on the floor laugh my a$$ off. I'm busting my gut with laughter. In my honest opinion, chessgames.com, complete waste of time.
but, on the other hand, it's better than nothing.
On the other hand, wouldn't it be nice if a very well played game of the day was the NORM?
To tell the truth, there oughta be a law.
Too many acronyms. Thanks for letting me share.
Time to go. CIAO.
|Dec-01-10|| ||weisyschwarz: <Check It Out>. Excellent!!|
What was worse, the game or the pun?
|Dec-01-10|| ||scormus: It never occurred to me until this week that it was a named opening, and now we've had TWO examples of this rubbish. Damiano Defence damned|
<GOTD> Gone To The Dogs?
|Dec-01-10|| ||ricardolopez: 3...Qe7 with an equal game. (4. Qh5+ ?, g6; 5. Nxg6, Qe4+ winning).All this is very known|
|Dec-01-10|| ||whiteshark: <GOTD> General Off Topic Decision?|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Phony Benoni: The Pedro Damiano page tells us that Damiano was a pharmacist who invented this opening so he could sell more Pepto-Bismol.|
Actually, in his book he condemned this defense. Naming it after him was one of those ironic twists that make chess history so unpredictable.
But I tell you--boneup on the 3...Qe7 defense, and you'll win an awful lot of games from people who get over confident because they know the Damiano is a loss for Black.
By the way, why is nobody mentioning the 9...d5 blunder? An overabundance of riches? The only explantation was that Black thought en passant was forced.
|Dec-01-10|| ||WhiteRook48: oh, wow. Stephen E Meyer... a lot of sick puns could be made from that... but even I'm not lame enough to do that...|
|Dec-01-10|| ||lzromeu: Take easy, kibitizers...
Thatīs The Damiano's week.
How to lose at black in seven lessons.
Some humor and history., We aren't wasting time, It's just for fun and I'm enjoying it.
Maybe someone could find winning way for Damiano's tragedy.
|Dec-01-10|| ||lzromeu: Everything is possible
Perry Feng vs S Sloan, 2010
|Dec-01-10|| ||dark.horse: possibilities:
1) Black is a raw beginner who has barely learned the moves, much less basic tactics.
2) Black thinks it's a helpmate.
3) Black is being passive-aggressive. My brother used to be that way when he was getting whipped at a game and started (intentionally) giving his pieces away. He called it "playing kind", and it would drive us crazy.
|Dec-01-10|| ||belgradegambit: Games like this make me wonder why my pun on this game wasn't accepted D Schneider vs Nakamura, 2001|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Phony Benoni: <belgradegambit> Generally, GOTDs need to last at least 10 moves. I've had a few rejected on that criteria myself.|
Besides, the pun "Nakamura Haiku" should be used for a game 17 moves long, not 7.
|Dec-01-10|| ||Elsinore: God, I had hoped that this game didn't really exist, that is was just a bad nightmare from last night. Why do you forsake me?|
|Dec-01-10|| ||zb2cr: Must be a competition to see which move of this game should be nominated as the single worst move of the game. |
I nominate 6. ... Qg7. Black is down by the exchange and 2 Pawns and he offers to exchange Queens?
|Dec-01-10|| ||TacitRudy: This opening somehow reminds of the wild kentucky opening. Both very suicidal!|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Tigranny: This game was certainly like tumbling dominos as Meyer blundered after blunder.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||TheTamale: Game of the day? More like game of the century! Perhaps even the greatest game in the history of chess. Superlatives just do not suffice for a game of this caliber.|
|Dec-02-10|| ||OBIT: <Zozoke>Actually, Damiano condemned 2...f6 in his analysis of 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3. The fact that the opening still received his name is an odd way to honor him, that or he owed money to the guy in charge of giving names to all the openings. |
In the game P Damiano vs NN, 1512, Damiano does demonstrate a flair for crushing this opening.
|Dec-02-10|| ||gars: Thanks for the translation, <Check It Out>!|
|Dec-02-10|| ||JohnZkn: This is a game where black actually wins from a similar position!|
|Dec-04-10|| ||kingfu: Belgrade,
Excellent! I would enjoy the pun on the player's names if they were not lame most of the time.
Nakamura haiku is the best name pun , ever!
Izromeu, you are exactly correct! Let us have some fun. Let us play chess!
