  Once: In "A Yellow Submarine" the baddies were the Blue Meanies, which was supposedly a reference to the police.

Liverpudlians (aka scousers) have long had a difficult relationship with the police.

Q. What do you call a scouser in a four bedroomed house?

A. A baregler. (And yes the misspelling is deliberate - try saying it)

Q. What do you call a scouser in a suit?

A. The accused.

  perfidious: <psmith: By the way: "a comedy of errors" describes most of my games, other than the ones I just plain lose to better players.>

In recent weeks, I've played through some of my old games (mid 1980s vintage) against master-level players, intending to submit them to CG.

Trouble was, when I reviewed them for the first time in many a moon, I realised very shortly that they were, in some cases, really wretchedly played-in one particular game, my 2350-rated opponent's play wasn't the standard of a 2000 player having a bad day.

Lovely stuff.

  kevin86: A neat trap! A brilliant epaulette-type mate in eleven moves!
Jul-02-11  Ferro: OF COURSE
Jul-02-11  lemaire90: I never could figure out how to play the Bird's, and this game convinces me to never try it ! Considering that the h4-e1 diagonal is open, shouldn't white develop his knig's knight on moves 4 or 5 instead of the e pawn and the dark square bishop ?

  Chessmensch: White as an adult plays chess the way I did as a kid in camp. I guess that's a compliment. :-)

  David2009: Brilliantly original Black second move! Respect! Hey it's high summer - who needs soundness?

"Planten un Blomen, open air casual 2007". Now this is the sort of festival we need near me!

<UTCAA> recommends Nf3 at move X: agreed but then there would be no story.

<Once> Heard these when I worked in Bootle. Guess who told me them? Yup -scousers!

  FSR: Really horribly played by both sides. I thought games of fewer than 15 moves weren't eligible for GOTD?
Jul-02-11  Shams: <A baregler. (And yes the misspelling is deliberate - try saying it)>

I give up. "Bare" "glur"? The naked burglar?

  Once: <Shams> It's an attempt at a scouse accent. Instead of saying burr-glurr, they pronounce the first syllable as "bare". If you can recollect how John Lennon or Paul McCartney spoke, you're just about there.
Jul-02-11  Shams: <Once> But where's the _funny_, mate. Clothed burglar or unclothed, where's the pun?
Jul-02-11  Shams: Ok, it's just 'burglar' in Scouse accent. I can live with that.

I read once that Scouse is a rare counterexample; the trend of course is for regional dialects to approach the mainstream dialect, but Scouse has apparently become more distinct. Intriguing, if one is into linguistics.

Jul-02-11  sfm: <lemaire90: I never could figure out how to play the Bird's, and this game convinces me to never try it !>

OK, and Fisher always played P-K4 - but traditional knowledge says:

1. Suddenly throwing in that first move is great against a guy who loves e.g. French (the opening). 1.f4,e6 may seem absurd to him, he gets nervous and shaken - and plays instead 1.-,d5 which he knows nothing about - and blunders quickly!

2. It can be quite fun and inspiring (developing!) to play something else.

<Considering that the h4-e1 diagonal is open, shouldn't white develop his king's knight... ?>

Aha! See? People playing e.g. 1.g3 2.Nf3 3.Bg2 and 4.0-0 may never learn to consider that important chesstactical finesse!

OK, strictly speaking, 1.f4 is indeed a rather stupid move, just like Dutch is a great way to get in trouble.

Luckily, chess was never really powered by what is theoretically good.

1.f4 is for real men with a sense of humor.
I should try it one day soon...

  FSR: <lemaire90: I never could figure out how to play the Bird's, and this game convinces me to never try it !>

If I could get my opponents to play 1...e5 2.fxe5 Bc5, I would play the Bird's non-stop, and win every game as White. 3.Nf3 gives White a winning game.

Jul-02-11  WhiteRook48: what about 8 Qf3 and 9 Bc4?

  FSR: <WhiteRook48: what about 8 Qf3 and 9 Bc4?>

Yes, that's still winning for White.

  Nightsurfer: Black's nonchalant bluff 2. ... Bc5 ist just gambling, for sure! So what? Chess is GAMING too, what else, so Chess is GAM-bl-ING too, you just have to get at the core of things, you have barely to look at the word "GAM-bl-ING" as such, it is the word GAMING with the surplus "-bl-" in the middle of the word "GAM-...-ING".

Therefore: by gambling and by winning Mr. Amini has created a nice piece of street-wise chess, I would call it HipHopChess, it is as rough and cool and outrageous and entertaining as some cool piece of HipHop.

And the final check-mate is pure fun. Therefore I do not mind that there have taken place some errors and blunders before that ... without errors and blunders there would be no brilliant moves in chess at all!

Just think of the famous check-mate by Legal aka Legall, please turn to the data bank De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750 : the real game has witnessed a severe blunder by White, namely move no. 5 (5.Nxe5??!!??!! ...), but it has been that very blunder that has motivated Black to react like a fool (5. ... Bxd1????) thus enabling White to compose the famous CHECKMATE OF LEGAL aka LEGALL for the first time.

Herewith the game that has been played for real at Paris 1782.

White: Legall Black
Black: Saint Brie

1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 d6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.Nc3 Bg4 5.Nxe5??!!??!! Bxd1???? 6.Bxf7+ Ke7 7.Nd5# 1-0

I enjoy that match the blunders and goofs notwithstanding. Blunders and goofs are part of life, we should accept that, but when those blunders and goofs do create a piece of art - a piece of art like the foregoing brilliant knock-out and its beautiful constellation - then I do enjoy it.

And I do not need a fake POST FESTUM - like the official version of the CHECKMATE by LEGAL aka LEGALL that has done some photo-shop-job with regard to the game and that has even faked the date of the game, namely Paris "1750" - , just have a look at the usual fictional version of that game that has been published by many books:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bc4 Bg4 4.Nc3 ...

And now the fake: 4. ... "g6" ...
And then the follow-up:

5.Nxe5! Bxd1 6.Bxf7+ Ke7 7.Nd5# 1-0

I do not need all those fakes, I do need and I do enjoy real stuff, I do enjoy stuff that is real life.

And therefore I do enjoy <Ingo Schomann vs Massoud Amini, Hamburg 2007> since it is great stuff from real life.

  Nightsurfer: <GrahamClayton> Yeah, it as the perfect place for enjoying summer ... provided there is a kind of summer up there in Northern Germany ...!
Oct-01-16  Dirkster: I think the setting of this game should be changed to "Planten un Blomen, open air casualTY"!!!
