|Sep-29-09|| ||WannaBe: Pun of the year!!!!!!! If you don't get it, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-Ka...|
This is the start of the NBA trend, where everyone wore short shorts, (Yes, even Larry Bird, and his white-white legs!!)
Evidence: http://www.fansedge.com/Images/Prod... I mean, C'mon, he even signed the Sports Illu. cover!!!
Magic Johnson looked much better with short shorts... :-)))
|Sep-29-09|| ||psychler: Great pun!|
|Sep-29-09|| ||WannaBe: By my estimate, <psychler>'s next post on CG.com will occur sometimes around march 4th, 2011... :-))))))|
|Sep-29-09|| ||Thuellin: Unfortunately, "Hou" is not pronounced like "who," which ruins quite a few puns. |
"Hou Hou Hou, Merry Christmas!"
|Sep-29-09|| ||BadKnight: Deadly pun!|
|Sep-29-09|| ||Dr. Funkenstein: Best pun on CG.com yet|
|Sep-29-09|| ||HeMateMe: Its a great pun. [Hou Knew?!]|
|Sep-29-09|| ||dTal: I think it was very well played by Hou Yifan though. Calculated the tactics nicely. Not at all trivial.|

|Sep-29-09|| ||RandomVisitor: 3 minutes per move - perhaps 11...Nc5, 12...Be7, 14...fxe5 or 15...fxe5 were improvements for black.|

|Sep-29-09|| ||whatthefat: What an outstanding pun!|
|Sep-29-09|| ||kevin86: The fur flies in this one! Nigel comes up short.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||whiteshark: Hou completes a Short sale.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||Chessmensch: We can't let this go without referring to the Nair commercials that used short shorts. Here's one of several: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou9A...|
|Sep-29-09|| ||Anthony1: the main thing I learned is its a bad idea to be a greedy pig in the Ruy with 4...Nxe4
By move 9 all the lines are open for White with development lead and a safe king position.
Meanwhile Black is constricted, doubled pawns and King in the center. That's a poisoned pawn for sure.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||RandomVisitor: 8...Nb7 seems to be the cause of many of Black's problems. 8...Nf5 might be better.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||DrCurmudgeon: <mistreaver: yeah Nigel loses to 13 year old girl.>|
Yeah, if it had been a 13 year old boy he wouldn't have been upset. But a girl? Why, he should give up chess!
P.S. I'm being sarcastic. But don't mind me. I'm old, I'm tired, and my feet hurt.
|Sep-29-09|| ||dumbgai: Short picked a strange opening.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 4...Nxe4 is actually a line played thousands of times, many with wins for black|
|Sep-29-09|| ||zdigyigy: <whiterook48> Korchnoi, in fact, plays open Lopez's as black and does just fine.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||eternaloptimist: very funny pun :D|
|Sep-29-09|| ||dumbgai: <WhiteRook48> By "strange opening" I meant Nb7.|
|Sep-29-09|| ||YouRang: Okay, Hou is responsible for this pun?
Well done. :-D
