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.

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.

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: I second the emotion. One can spend many sleepless nights trying to figure out why certain moves are played here. White trades 2 pieces for 5 pawns for positional reasons. Anyone who claims they would have found 17. Ng5 is blowing major smoke. 55. R3c6 is an amazing move. If ...

Boomie: Though Watson's claim is eternally debatable, this game has no bearing on the debate. One of the all time greats beat a young master. No more meaning can be wrung from this one game. Considering how well they played endgames, I would suspect that Lasker, Rubinstein, and Capablance ...

Boomie: 1913 - Had to be either Walter "Big Train" Johnson or "Smokey" Joe Wood. The Wiki articles on them don't mention that record. But they were both essentially unhittable in 1913. In 1912, Wood was 34-5 with an ERA of 1.91 and 258 Ks. Now that was a year and a half.

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

<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.

  OhioChessFan: You need not chase down the Zapruder film was altered silliness. For starters, 8 spectators identified by name were filming in Dealey Plaza that day, along with 4 newsmen in the motorcade who were jumping in and out of their cars throughout the parade. I won't even lead you by the hand down that pathway, but a reasonable person should be able to see the insurmountable problems therein for the alterationists.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, it was Oswald alone. All kinds of people had a motive. That comes with being the President. As for the conspiracy nuts,they point to the head snap in the Zapruder film as the single most important reason to think there was a conspiracy, and then point to other less significant matters as proof it was altered. Apparently, these sophisticated plotters altered the film, but didn't change <the single most important> part!
