Jun-06-14  Conrad93: Do you mean the New York tournament of 1924?
Jun-06-14  Conrad93: I don't remember ever seeing that tournament.

Benzol must be high.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: No <Conrad> I mean Maehrisch - Ostrau (1923) which YOU thought was a game and later found out was a tournament. And if you memory of it is that feeble take the time to refresh it. You might just find it an enlightening experience!
Jun-06-14  Conrad93: My comments are nowhere on that page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad> Cast your mind back to some comments you made on the Lasker page. It actually started on page 64 of this thread but use Emanuel Lasker as a reference point. And your comments and mine on page 43 of the Yifan Hou thread might also jog your memory.
Jun-06-14  Conrad93: I never thought it was a game, and none of my comments verify what you have claimed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad93: Jim, I was referring to the game posted, not the tournament.> Then what were you referring to?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad93> There is now an Id Monster on your trail. Beware!
Jun-07-14  Conrad93: IF I said that, why do you assume I mean the tournament?

I was obviously referring to a game.

Jun-07-14  N0B0DY: Of course, <N0B0DY> could have possibly predicted that flimsy argument.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad> You DID say that and the post you referred to was about the Maehrisch - Ostrau (1923) tournament. QED.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <Conrad93: I will never accept that I am wrong. It's not in my nature.>

Alekhine vs Euwe, 1935

  perfidious: <GSM> Guess we can't say we weren't warned......not sure what to do in the presence of his staggering stupidity.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad> and <AJ> having a "discussion" could be very entertaining.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: One could merely stand in awe as that pair duked it out in the fleshpots of Pensuckola.
Apr-06-15  apj: What happens after 23. f3? Attacking the queen, then knight can be captured and white would be a pawn up. Isn't the game still playable for white?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gilmoy: <apj: 23.f3> Nc4 with <mutual threat> to both Qs. Meanwhile Be3 is also hanging and doubled, so ducking the Q trade simply drops another piece. But after the Q trade 24.fxg4 Nxb2, now Rd1 and Be3 are both attacked, and after 25.Re1 <move one to save the other> Bxc3 causes more pain. And White can't even counterattack the Nb2 because the same Bxc3 defends it.

And White is already down the Ng5 he never got back.

Jun-17-15  Conrad93: At least I'm not Perfidious. He reeks of arrogance and narcissism.

I would rather be in the presence of a humble idiot than a boasting know-it-all.

Premium Chessgames Member
  john barleycorn: <Conrad93: At least I'm not Perfidious....>

Everybody knows. <perfidious> knows a thing or two about chess. In particular, the enpassant rule.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Yeah, but Ah caint count the number o' them there squares ta make a queen!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Abdel Irada: In <Conrad93> we find the worst of both worlds: a boasting idiot.

Wonder if he's ever heard that old saw, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Abdel Irada> Why read of suvh aphorisms when one can live them?
Jun-18-15  Conrad93: <Everybody knows. <perfidious> knows a thing or two about chess. In particular, the enpassant rule.>

I would smoke Perfidious in a game of chess. He pretends to know more than he actually does.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Ah'll tell yew what, Ah is a lahfe 1200 playah!

Is that better'n bein' <donkrad>?
