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.

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.

<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.

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: -> Everybody Wang Hao tonight. Everybody Wang Hao tonight. They made it to time control with even chances.
   Oct-07-19 Larsen vs Geller, 1960
Boomie: White's position on the queenside after 10. b3: [DIAGRAM] This is identical to a Benoni structure. The general rule for the opponent is to resist the b-pawn push. Once white gets in b4, the game is half over. Notice later white plays e3 which is also a Benoni move.

   Sep-14-19 P Maghsoodloo vs Aronian, 2019
Boomie: 18. Qc2 felt odd for a Ruy. I think maybe that's where he lost his way. Something like 18. Nf1 is the typical Ruy maneuver. e3 is an admirable post for that knight.

Boomie: Ding is The Thing but Shak reserves the right to beat anyone, anytime. That unlikely event would lead to a what, 6 way tie for first? I've lost count of the number of contenders.
   Jul-25-19 Rubinstein vs O Bernstein, 1903
Boomie: [DIAGRAM] 25. f4?? is perhaps the worst move Rubinstein would ever make. Simply 25. Qh3 forcing the queen trade, leaves white a piece to the good. Later in his career, Rubinstein would win with slight endgame advantages, such as the isolated a-pawn here. Black never had the advantage
