Seriously?

There are dictionaries all over the web. If you don't know what a word means, you can look it up. You even know how to spell it!

  kevin86: White sacrifices all of his pieces and is left with just a knight.

To see the knight mate a surrounded king is a pretty picture.

  Castleinthesky: I'm in agreement with <Ohio Chess Fan>, a pun is not proper if it insults the player personally (even if he has been dead for many years). Calling someone dumb has nothing to do with the game. Perhaps, "Forever Young" or "Closing the Dore". The game itself is a nice suffocation mate.

  LucB: "Closing the Dore" is a nice find, though I must confess to having laughed at "Dumb L Dore".

  OhioChessFan: I have <thegoodanarchist> on ignore, but I see from <keypusher> he has <once again> repeated his lie about what I've said. I challenge anyone to show where I've used the phrase "Democrat Party". I am sick of <thegoodanarchist> lying about me and regret even seeing his comments second hand.

  OhioChessFan: Here's a post I made to the liar <thegoodanarchist> on December 29, 2013. He disappeared into whatever hole liars disappear into, but popped out again today to lie about me again:

<A word search of my user name and "Democratic Party" returned 15 hits (one of them "Democratic Party's as a possessive). A word search of my user name and "Democrat Party" returned zero hits. Best stay away, <tga> you're just not cut out for this sort of thing. Just saying.>

  Jim Bartle: Some of the conservatives used "Democrat party." OCF was never one of them.
May-30-14  stingray0104: White takes a move longer to mate so that he can win in the flashiest possible way.

Very cool final position, but can't say I was all that impressed with black's play.

  morfishine: I agree with <OhioChessfan>. It doesn't matter much who submits any arcane or banal pun; but <CG> should draw the line

Any term like 'dumb' or 'stupid' should not be attached to any chess player at any time. No matter how poor or inept one may play at any given time, one is always thinking and planning, and so is not 'dumb', despite the result

<Redshield> This phrase today is hardly a masterpiece; On the other hand, <The Sinking of the Graf's play> is or was definitely brilliant and I'm at a loss as to how this has not been approved

OMG just check the Rogoff page from a few months ago.

I am not a liar, despite what OCF claims. My goodness, selective memory is not becoming on you (or anyone else).

  thegoodanarchist: <OhioChessFan: <JB: They make it tougher for some people to vote, largely Democratic ones.>

Well, yeah, most the really stupid people who can't follow instructions tend to be Democrats.>

From our holier than thou friend <OCF> on Page 4837 of the Kenneth Rogoff

but we cannot have cg.com insulting anyone! After all, that is <OCF>s domain.

Then there is this:

< OhioChessFan: ...- Democrat Jesus>

on page 4845 of the Rogoff page:

Kenneth Rogoff

Oh, sorry, I misremembered the noun to which you attached the adjective. I must be a liar! Or it was 7 freaking months ago and I misremembered the noun. Hmm, I wonder which one is the truth....

But your legalism requires that I must be lying. That way you can avoid defending your BS and claim it is my fault instead of you being full of it.

crickets.....

You are right, I am not cut out for denial, unlike you. Which is why I posted several posts showing what you are full of.

Leave debate to the intellectually honest folk, please.

  thegoodanarchist: <TheFocus: This game looks composed.>

1892 was part of the romantic era of chess. You should compare this game with others of the era. You will then realize it probably was <not> composed.

For example, look at the Immortal Game, or the Evergreen Game.

May-30-14  waustad: Why are you getting into political twaddle here? Remember where "poly" + "ticks" comes from = "many" + "blood sucking parasites." Ugh. A plague on both your houses, especially the ones who use robocalls.
May-30-14  Granny O Doul: "Dumb L Dore" is one of the greatest titles in the history of this site. I do share TheFocus's doubts about the game's authenticity, though.
Dec-05-15  KaosKid: One of my most favorite games. White sacs all his pieces and checkmates with his only remaining piece!
Oct-04-16  Moszkowski012273: I think black SERIOUSLY underestimated his chances.
