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.

<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.

Boomie: <technical draw: old Sparkie.> When Ted Bundy was introduced to Old Sparky, cheers broke out at the chess club. He had caused dreadful suffering in Seattle. A friend quipped that a restaurant had offered Beef Bundy au Jus, which came with a 9 volt battery.

Boomie: <Fanques Fair: Why not 29...h4?> 29...h4 is certainly worth a try. Although the engines don't see a winning advantage for black, it is probably better than other tries. Sometimes the obvious moves feel suspect. You know your opponent has seen it and yet allows it. Maybe there ...
