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.

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: <Sargon> Traditionally, tournaments have had an introduction that includes a link to the official site. See, for example, 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) . This is especially important for team events. We can't have team results here without a lot of effort. So a link to team ...

Boomie: Mysterious game. A French ignoring c5? Go figure. The number of head scratching moves per square inch in this game is large. I get the sense that this is way above my pay grade.

Boomie: <AK: I need to get a life!> You may recall the GMAN games. The hardware and engines were far less capable back then. We all had to burn barrels of midnight oil to make sense out of the positions. That WAS our life...heh.

Boomie: <at the top level where Short resided at the time of this game> This was a bit before Short's time. He was going on 15 years old then and was rated about 300th according to Chessmetrics.
