|Oct-05-08|| ||shivasuri4: A fairly good game....|
|Oct-05-08|| ||Sularus: white threatens 26. RxB followed by 27. Qh6.
if 25. Rb8, them 26. Bd4 Qe6 (else white plays 27. Qf6) 27. Qh6 f6
i hope i got that right.
btw, love the name. i can imagine him in a bar...
"hello lady, spooner here"
|Oct-05-08|| ||al wazir: If 25...Rfb8, then 26. Rxb7 Rxb7 (26...Qxb7 27. Qh6) 28. Rxd5, threatening Rd6 and then the fatal Qh6.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||Once: Okay, I give in. Can anyone explain "There is no spooner?"|
|Oct-05-08|| ||WannaBe: Um... How about Spoonerism?|
|Oct-05-08|| ||marioluigi: there is no spooner is a reference from the movie the matrix, where the line "there is no spoon" is uttered. The first movie of 3 with Keanu Reeves.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||newzild: Nice, sustained, initiative from white.
Personally, I hate meeting the Smith-Morra as black. I always decline with 3...Nf6.
|Oct-05-08|| ||PaulLovric: i am back after a few months away, soon i'll be first again|
|Oct-05-08|| ||hpavlo: "There is no spoon" is a line from The Matrix. There's a longer story, and those who are interested are redirected to the movie itself, but basically it's about overcoming your perceived limitations or unfounded fears...|
|Oct-05-08|| ||xenophon: one of my favourite spoonerisms is "I've just received a blushing crow" which is quite apt.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||Once: Most of the famous spoonerisms were fabricated. Professor Spooner did have a habit of getting his mords wuddled. His students liked it so much that they started to invent phrases that the professor might have said.|
"Propose a toast to the queer old dean" - Dear old queen.
"Sir, you have hissed all my mystery lessons and tasted the whole worm." -- missed all my history lessons and wasted the whole term
"A well boiled icicle" - well oiled bicycle.
But of course today's title refers to the Matrix. Geek that I am, I should have got that one.
|Oct-05-08|| ||drukenbishop: hey gang! i'm back!
26 Rxb7 Rxb7
27 Rxd5 Rc8
28 Rd6 Rc6
(or black can try to bait white with 28... Rc1+ 29 QxR? QxR! of course white should play 29 Kh2 Rc6)
29 Bd4 Rxd6
30 Bxb6 Rbxb6
and black wins
if instead 28 Bd4 Rc4! (Qe6 works too)
lets say white wised up and didn't take the bishop now what?!
26 Bd4 g5!!
27 Qxg5 Qg6!!!
(27 Bxb6 gxf4 28 Bc5 Rfc8)
and white loses
it's understandable white resigned when he/she did!!
|Oct-05-08|| ||al wazir: <Sularus: if 25. Rb8, them 26. Bd4 Qe6 (else white plays 27. Qf6) 27. Qh6 f6 28. Qxh7#>|
25...Rab8 26. Bd4 g5! 27. Qe5 (27. Qxg5+ Qg6) f6 28. Qe7.
<druk>: Black resigned, not white. Please clarify your post.
The analyses posted here, like the game itself, are filled with thud and blunder.
|Oct-05-08|| ||drukenbishop: oh yea and also if
27 Rxd5 Re8
28 Rd6 Re6!!
29 Bd4 RxR
30 BxQ Rb7xB or
29 Bd4 QxR
30 QxQ RxQ
29 Be5 RxR
30 Qh6 f6!!
28 Bd4 Qc7!!!!!!
29 Qh6 Re1#!!!!!!
if Bd4 Qc7
QxQ RxQ and still up in material
a won game for black!!
|Oct-05-08|| ||al wazir: Hey, <druk> (that's Russian for "friend"), lighten up! |
I don't appreciate your poetry. Save it for when someone says something really nasty to you. (If you continue in that vein, it won't be long.)
|Oct-05-08|| ||DarthStapler: What happens if black plays 23... Kg7 or Kh8 instead of Bxf6?|
|Oct-05-08|| ||Andrew Chapman: drukenbishop has just gone on my ignore list (only two on it). Blessings.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||just a kid: Hi I'm drukenbishop.I have to make fun of everybody because I hate myself and I'm so depressed.Get a Life!|
|Oct-05-08|| ||jovack: nice quote, good to see some matrix pop culture finding its way onto the site|
|Oct-05-08|| ||whiteshark: two islands: <Hong Kong-Iceland>|
|Oct-05-08|| ||maxi: Yeah, nice game. Black missed that it was necessary to play 13...e5, otherwise after 14.e5 White's bishops would become murderous.|
|Oct-05-08|| ||maxi: In this opening White has an extra open file, c. In the position that arose it is better for Black to allow the hole in d5 than the open lines for the Bishops and the c Rook.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||kevin86: White has two major threats:26 xb7 xb7 27 h6 and mate at g7|
or 26 d4 moves 27 f6 and mate at g7 or h8
|Oct-06-08|| ||hedgeh0g: Coincidentally, I stumbled upon this old GotD with a similar pun. Looks like the people at CG are matrix buffs.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||al wazir: If any of you thought I was dissing your analysis, I'm sorry. "Thud and blunder" is a spoonerism for "blood and thunder."|
