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.

Proud of all the Cossack blood that's in me

Ginchinsmokedhashverily, that's me!

She had me at "Heh".
Much jibber jabber ensued.
It's all about chess.

Boomie: After 12...Bg4 13. Ng5+ fxg5 14. Qxg4 Nf6 15. Qxg5 Qxd4 16. Nf5 Qb6 [DIAGRAM] It appears to be a game. I don't see any white crush though the pressure on g7 is a bit of a bother. Of course, I'm flying without a parachute here.

Boomie: <perfidious: one (Dennis Waterman) known to me from the green baize> There were quite a few multi-game masters in that group. Bill Schill won a sizable backgammon tourney in Vegas and played a lot of poker. I think maybe he was following my lead there. I was taught backgammon ...
