MATE IN THREE
|Sep-25-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Andre Cheron|
|Sep-25-06|| ||chessmoron: Techron with Cheron (Chevron)|
|Sep-25-06|| ||WannaBe: I, unfortunately, never had dinner with Andre... =(|
|Sep-25-06|| ||Phony Benoni: <syracrophy> 1.Nf5 Bxh8 2.Ng7|
|Sep-25-06|| ||syracrophy: <Phony Benoni> Yes. 1.Nf5! Bxh8 <the threat was 2.Rh1+ mating> 2.Ng7!! Bxg7 <this is what I call "a suicide">3.Bxg7#|
|Sep-25-06|| ||Phony Benoni: It's strange that Cheron was such a renowned expert on the endgame, yet his three wins in the database last a total of 32 moves!|
|Sep-25-06|| ||trumbull0042: "author of note, his major work being", not "author of note his major work being". Correction...?|
|Sep-25-06|| ||OhioChessFan: How isn't the repeated posts by <Bidmonfa> a violation of:
2. No spamming, advertising, or duplicating posts. |
They are nothing more than spammed, duplicated, advertising links for his website.
|Sep-25-06|| ||Stevens: <OhioChessFan: How isn't the repeated posts by <Bidmonfa> a violation of: 2. No spamming, advertising, or duplicating posts. > irritates me too, thats why i've complained more than once to absolutely no effect and put it on the ignore list. much easier that way.|
|Sep-25-06|| ||acirce: This is what <chessgames.com> said Feb 10:|
<User: WTHarvey has never been accused of spamming, in fact his collections of tactical puzzles receive numerous compliments. Although he has posted hundreds of links to his site, his resources are very well received and help enhance the value of our player pages.
On the other hand, User: BIDMONFA has been constantly accused of spamming, and yet he's done nothing different than WTHarvey.
Spamming is, by definition, posting the same message repeatedly. BIDMONFA has never posted the same link twice (with one exception, which we're willing to attribute to human error.) The content quality of the chess site being linked to never enters into the equation.
The bottom line is, it's not our job to rate chess sites.>
Makes sense to me. I wouldn't consider it spamming if someone did nothing else than linking to various (different) Chessbase articles either.
But I don't know if <BIDMONFA> has started posting the exact same link over and over.
|Sep-25-06|| ||Stevens: not spamming, advertising.
anyway, why not post the link in his profile, and contribute something to the discussions so that people look at his profile to find out more, rather than use this site as nothing more than free advertising.
can't believe i'm even wasting my time, just bung em on ignore if it irritates!
while i'm here, check out yankees.com for all your baseball requirements
|Sep-25-06|| ||Phony Benoni: I'm obviously in a huge minority here, but I enjoy seeing a post from BIDMONFA on these player pages, making it possible to associate a face with the name.|
Maybe he's advertising--but since he doesn't ask for money, I don't care. If it bothers you, just use your ignore button and let the rest of us have our little pleasures.

|Sep-25-09|| ||paulalbert: As player of the day, Andre Cheron deserves a comment. Actually one of my chess colleagues, Billy J. Levine, now over 90 years of age learned chess from Cheron, and Billy showed me the puzzle by Cheron posted below. Billy is a strong practical player, incredible on solving studies and puzzles, having been taught virtually all the themes by Cheron. Billy still teaches chess to children in the local schools. He also is collector of chess sets and his home is a chess museum of incredible sets collected all over the world.Billy is a great admirer of Cheron's artistry. Paul Albert|
