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.

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: It would have been easy to have three rapid matches with the highest TPR seeded into to second round. But after all, this is an open tournament and how they decide who gets the trophy is not all that important.

Boomie: Another problem with losing all those words that end in 'o' or 'a' is they are perfect for song lyrics or poetry. I mean, what rhymes with 'LatinX'? Frankly, it sounds like the name of a medical supply company.
