|Mar-24-06|| ||azaris: No, I presume he's some guy who also isn't familiar with the correct use of apostrophes.|
|Mar-24-06|| ||keypusher: Yes, it was my own ignorance of apostrophes that kept me from playing the delightful <Gambit of Captain Evans> for so long -- could not fit the name of the opening into the space on the scoresheet. Then I learned you could, if you wished, write it without apostrophes altogether: <The Evans Gambit>, in the style of <The Maltese Falcon> or <The Bronze Age> . Now it's just <the Stone-Ware Defense> and its affiliated hyphens that keep me up at night.|

I recommend the variation known as <Tupper-Ware Defense>.
|Mar-26-06|| ||midknightblue: Thank you for correcting me. Kindest and humblest regards...
|Mar-26-06|| ||keypusher: Dont' have any worry's about's it's.|
|Mar-26-06|| ||midknightblue: <Azaris> Let him have it! I never screw up three apostrophes'es'es in one sentence|
|Mar-27-06|| ||WannaBe: Since I'm on a roll here... More potential pun, "Rohde Scholar"|
|Mar-27-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Wannabe: A good comedian knows an exit line, and you will never top 'Michael Rohde boat ashore."|
By the way, back in the day I was a Rohde for the Allman Brothers.
|Sep-27-09|| ||Tabanus: Picture of him as 17-year-old IM, from the interesting site http://nezhmet.wordpress.com/2007/0...:|
|Oct-18-11|| ||wordfunph: <GM Michael Rohde once wrote in Chess Life that there are about five moves per game where Grandmasters don't know what to do and have to think, International Masters eight moves per game, FIDE masters ten, and National Masters fifteen.>|
from Dan Heisman's The Improving Chess Thinker.
|Oct-18-11|| ||Strongest Force: My advice: never play bughouse with 3 screaming kids: me and Mike against Dlugy and Benjamin. All 3 would be GMs but they were very young then. I was doing very well against Max but I couldn't take Mike's screaming in my ear and I had to let someone take my place.|
|Jul-13-13|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: GM Michael Rohde went +27-2=1 in a central park simul today. The milk shake drinkers were out in droves.|
|Jul-14-13|| ||Strongest Force: Central Park is where I started. At ICC I had a anonymous account. I used every chance I could get to verbally abuse Mike because I knew he had a famous temper. He didn't disappoint. He was apoplectic with anger and even became an admin to find out who I was. Once he found out he thought it was one of the funniest things ever. |
|Jul-14-13|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: haha, that is hysterical <Strongest Force>. I never would've guessed about the temper, he was polite and well behaved. Although I did catch a look in his eye at one point, in hindsight, i'm imagining it now as slight agitation. :) It was a one and done for him at the park yesterday, hopefully he'll return next summer.|

So far as I know, you were the only one of that foursome I never played.
|Jul-14-13|| ||Strongest Force: I needed bughouse genius Jon Schroer as a partner against any of the others. Jon is the Bobby Fischer of bughouse and he allows you to think by not constantly yelling in your ear.|
|Jul-14-13|| ||HeMateMe: <tab> Interesting photos.|
|Jul-15-13|| ||perfidious: One picture appeared on the cover of Chess Life & Review and was panned by some members.|
|Jul-15-13|| ||HeMateMe: Yaz looks pretty buff with his polyester suit. Where's Joel Benjamin? |
So, Fed always dressed like a slob? He and Grischuk.
|Jul-15-13|| ||Strongest Force: Fed and myself were 'street/thug' types. We didn't look for trouble but if it came we figured we could handle it.|
The Yaz was the best dressed of that generation with defirmian a close second.
When Dlugy was briefly a pro he also dressed like Yaz....all others basically looked like bums.
|Jul-15-13|| ||OhioChessFan: <HMM> where did you see Yaz in polyester?|
|Jul-15-13|| ||HeMateMe: <OCF> is he not wearing a nose picker-lapels poly jacket? I may have somehow imagined it.|
|Jul-16-13|| ||OhioChessFan: I meant, I didn't see a pic of Yaz anywhere on <Tabanus> links. Was it in there somewhere or somewhere else?|
|Aug-26-13|| ||SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: Player of the Day honors, nice. Best wishes on your B'day many more to come and thanks for the draw accept in your simul this summer! :)|
|Apr-23-15|| ||PJs Studio: Anyone know where I can get a copy of all of his game of the month columns? I love fm annotated games and his notes were some of my favorites!|
