Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.


Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!



This is the forum.
The Cirque,
On an average day, people go about their business.
When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

We were working out of Tactics and Swindles. My partner's name is Jessie. My name's Boomie.

Given that a thought dies shortly after birth, the writer is a mortician whose job is to make it smile.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

<If Gilbert and Sullivan Played Chess>

Though it may seem quite incongruous
And it makes so little sense to us,
She is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Though she may seem a bit mannish,
She would never play the Spanish.
'Cause she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Neither Russian, French nor Catalan
'Cause she always wants to get her man.
So she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Boomie: <twinlark> Thanks for the interesting collection of maps. It follows Russia, for example, from the Kievan Rus to WWII. The Rus were Vikings, you know. Seems like the Vikings settled Russia and England. The 1945 map fails to include Russia. Perhaps they weren't sure if Eastern ...

Boomie: <h3 and Kh2> Thorsson's brilliancy is a subtle prelude to b4. Notice that after Qxb4, the queen may follow up with Qe1+ and use Re8 to block if white plays Qd8. Kh2 defends b4 amazingly.

"In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love. They had five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

QUESTION: is your last post here a line from a famous movie? I'm trying to think where I heard it before but I'm drawing a blank...

  Boomie: <Jesh-ahhh: is your last post here a line from a famous movie?>

Indeed it is. The answer has already been given by the great geneticist. A bear claw is in the mail.

Premium Chessgames Member

<Teem> I'm impressed. This <Gregor> is no slouch, that's for sure. I had heard that quote before, and I've seen the movie twice, but I would never have made the connection.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jesharoo>

Gregor is indeed up to whatever gawd forsaken task we give him. Curiously, the geneticist's name was Gregor Johann Mendel, so this must be his younger, smarter brother.

In all seriousness--one could do a lot worse than to learn from him. In my estimation, he is one of the very best at that in these parts.
