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!

BOOMNET

This is the forum.
The Cirque, CG.com.
On an average day, people go about their business.

When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

Dum De Dum

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.

Professor, don't get on that ship! That book, To Serve Man, it's a chess book!

Have pawn. Will travel.

The Cirque - Your best choice for a second location.

<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.

<With apologies to George M. Cohan>

D-z-indzi-chashvili spells Zindchinhashvalley.

Proud of all the Cossack blood that's in me

Praise the man who says my name correctly

D-z-indzi-chashvili you see

It's a shame that my name has never been pronounced quite like

Ginchinsmokedhashverily, that's me!

<CG Haiku>

She had me at "Heh".
Much jibber jabber ensued.
It's all about chess.

Boomie: Here is a fun site chock full of limericks. http://www.thehypertexts.com/The%20... Alas, it doesn't have one of my favs. There was an old man from Yuma Who told a Goldwater joke to a puma. The puma began To eat the old man. The puma had no sense of huma.

Boomie: <Tiger's injuries have ruined his chances of ever winning another major.> Perhaps. But Tiger is leading the tour in round 3 scoring. So fatigue isn't a factor. I would guess that Tiger has another major in him.

Boomie: <thegoodanarchist: What a delightful & curious game!> GMs had some difficulty describing Super Nezh's tactics. There is a bit of jealousy in some of their comments. For example, Polugaevsky said "I must have beaten Super Nezh a dozen times but I would trade them all for this ...

Boomie: I see my attempt to shoo the flies away from this page has had great effect. One begins to wonder about the motives. Do competing sites create socks to disrupt and 'uglify' the so called discussions to drive away prospects? Are you all trying to kill CG? You've chosen an effective ...

Boomie: <offramp: <TheMacMan: fritz gives 25.Bf3??, and says its weak and inferior to 25.Qc5!!> That seems a bit drastic. I wonder what the silicon brain had seen?> When there are many roads to victory, it doesn't matter to humans which road is taken. Consider Morphy's demolition
 
   Aug-08-18 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1935 (replies)
 
Boomie: <Euwe's game was described by Capablanca as balanced and straightforward.> We can only guess what Capa meant by balanced and straightforward. These terms probably have a precise meaning to a World Champion. We patzers can only speculate.
