  manselton: To OhioChessFan "You Rang?" was the catchphrase of the butler Lurch in The Addams Family He used it when ever he answered the door, the telephone or the servant gong. :)
Feb-23-19  goodevans: The opening left black with a hole on e6 but it was guarded OK by two minor pieces. With <16...Nb5> he managed to remove both those guards and a few moves later the hole was occupied by white's N. The disruption this caused meant the result was never really in doubt after that.

Feb-23-19  Cibator: The super-creepy thing about Lurch was that he'd appear instantly on the spot when summoned, even when an earlier long-shot had made it clear he was nowhere in the vicinity.
