|Nov-12-07|| ||timhortons: are you a doctor?how is chess viewed in chad? do they have strong professional players there that people could look up too?|
|Nov-27-07|| ||Geronimo: Nope, I'm not a doctor. Both of my chess partners on mission have been other "expats". There must be some Chadian chess players, but I didn't meet any. My job requires that I spend time in rather remote (and war-torn) areas, rather than the capital cities, where one would be more likely to find any chess culture. |
Lately I've been studying much more than playing, as my only chess parnter is an 1800 strength Mephisto handheld....
|Jul-17-08|| ||YouRang: I always thought that cg.com should have a MAD Alfred E. Newman avatar.|
I just found out that they did, and you got it. Good pick. :-)
|Jul-17-08|| ||Travis Bickle: Geronimo I have to tell you I think your avatar is great! ; )|
|Aug-31-08|| ||ravel5184: <Geronimo> What's up with your forum? Only 6 kibitzes? (well 7 now).|
|Sep-01-08|| ||Geronimo: Well I'm not the strongest player here, <ravel5184> and I post sort of sporatically. If I'm known on this site its for patzery posts and the occasional bon mot, but I love chess! It keeps me (relatively) sane. You are welcome to my forum any time.|
|Sep-06-08|| ||whiteshark: Where is the tooth gap of <Alfred E. Newman> coming from?|
|Sep-12-08|| ||Geronimo: Who's Alfred E. Newman? I thought that was Ponomariov!!!|
|Sep-12-08|| ||Open Defence: you were close.. its Silvio Danailov|
|Sep-14-08|| ||whiteshark: Whosoever. It the tooth gap real?|
|Sep-19-08|| ||Geronimo: Geronimo: There are competing theories about the toothgap, <whiteshark>. Some say that I lost it when attempting to remove a billiard ball from my mouth without using my tongue. Others claim that the tooth was removed in a lower Slobovian initiation ritual (all male children at age 25 undergo ritual orthodonture). Still others claim that it is in fact no toothgap so much as the positive absence of tooth when viewed as a the dialectical negation of toothliness. I personally believe it is simply a piece of kielbasa left over from lunch. Aftwer awll, wat is the twooth anyway.
What... me worry?
|Sep-19-08|| ||deerslayer888: Geronimo..
You are probably descended from the legendary yet mysterious cult of the look at mes...
they were a proud arrogant people.. Upon discovering that polished shell could reflect fairly well , their wondrous stature and glory... they decided that they must see themselves forever!!!!!!
they fashioned a special bone handle which was extremely thin that protruded from their mouth through the tooth gap especially suited for the purpose. this handle held a mirror aboutr 6 to 10 inches away from the great arrogant ones.. they would just stare at themeselves all day... Eventually all descendants were born with this gap.
Just thought you might be interested...
|Sep-19-08|| ||deerslayer888: whiteshark!! are you ok...
Did you know that I wanted to call my son Hark.. Iwould say .."hark get me the shovel... Hark get me the hoe"..
but it ddidn't work that way.
I kept saying "Hark!hark...get me the shovel... or Hark Hark... getme the home...
People thought I was a goose....
|Sep-20-08|| ||whiteshark: <Geronimo> Thanks for the complete solution!|
But isn't there always a hidden secret behind every lucid explanation waiting for it's revealment?
And I thought it was a calcium deficiency in your early childhood diet. :D
|Sep-20-08|| ||whiteshark: <888> You could do worse... and always have! :D|
|Mar-08-09|| ||whiteshark: <Geronimo> I didn't know that. --> http://escapetheokiezone.com/upload...|

What... me worry?

|May-30-09|| ||ChessBookForum: <Geronimo> Here are two examples from the de la Villa book:|
hms123 chessforum and
The book is not an encyclopedia. It explains things, has you work through certain positions, gives you principles, and is perfect for someone at your level. Once you work through it (which won't take that long relatively speaking) you will be ready to tackle any of the advanced books.
Our experience with endgame books (and we have a lot of them) is that they are dry and hard to digest in anything but small pieces. The de la Villa book is a real change of pace from anything else we've seen. Feel free to stop by anytime and ask more questions.
|May-30-09|| ||ChessBookForum: <Geronimo> Thanks for the kind words about the forum. if you ever run across a book that you really like (in whatever language), just post a brief review at the <ChessBookForum> along with a little bit of information about it. All books and instructional material are fair game--from beginners to advanced.|
Relevant discussion is always welcome.
