  Viktorerro: More, a Lot actually, of California rice to consume, to even par with King Norwegian Salmon. Nagmukhang oversize na Galunggonglang ni Mamasan Lotlot ung overage na Kid.

More practice putting and hitting the drives with Tiger Woods just to make an even par 72 - with a 10 point handicap.

  Viktorerro: Matik na matik talaga iyan.
Matikas si Norwegian King Salmon.
Madugong sunugan pa ng kilay at malalimang pakikipagbuno kay AlpaZorro sa kailaliman ng gabi at uundap undap na lampara - para HINDI nasi ZERO. Yaiiiiiyyyyeeeeee!!!

  patzer2: Black was doing well until 27...Bc8?! 28. Rc1 =.

Instead, 27...Re8 ⩱ (-0.78 @ 34 ply, Stockfish 10) keeps Black's pawn advantage intact.

  keypusher: Why wouldn’t Black play 38....Rxg8 39.Bxg8 Ng6, rather than stalemating his own knight?
