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!

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.

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.

<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

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

Ginchinsmokedhashverily, that's me!

<CG Haiku>

Much jibber jabber ensued.
It's all about chess.

Boomie: Some of you may have seen this post: <chessgames.com: Please try to keep the discussion here relevant to the 2015 Gashimov Memorial. Thanks.> I don't think this silly, well worn, and boring discussion of "who's the greatest" qualifies. Please take it to a player page.

Boomie: <WannaBe: It takes ~2 to 3 minutes for the board to appear> Thanks. I see it loads after a few minutes. But what process takes that long to load? I'm not sure I have the patience for it.

Boomie: Something for somebody's to do list: 13th DSB Kongress (Hanover) (1902) The intro is in German and not really up to your high standards.

Boomie: <iking: I think the notes meant by FIDE was chess notes .. am I correct?> No. All note taking is forbidden except for those specified on the score sheet. Allowing some notes would put the arbiters in the position of an editor having to judge the content of notes. That would ...

Boomie: Her rating is now 2411 as she picked up a whopping 32 points at Reykjavik Open (2015) . Her 6.5 points were made with only 1 draw. Her games are fun to watch.

Boomie: The highest rating given here is a bit deceiving since it comes from when he was well past his prime. Chessmetrics calculates his highest rating at over 2500 ( http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/... ), making him grandmaster strength. He had some impressive scalps hanging from his ...
