wtpy: HMM, Saw one of those bluegrass incarnations of Robert Plant with guitar virtuoso Buddy Miller, who was a wearing a Gandalf hat, and playing Jimmy Page by way of Daniel Lanois that blew me away more than the original who I saw in the 70s. It was Led Zepplin come down to the holler.

wtpy: In my previous post I think trends is the verb MLK chose.
   Dec-16-18 10th London Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
wtpy: Chcat, I am more of a Sweet Jane guy myself. And while it is heretical I know, I prefer Lou's solo versions of the of the Velvet Underground's classics.

wtpy: Time pressure would explain 34 Rf8+; as Jerseybob noted 14 years ago 34 Re1 is a dead draw.
   Dec-06-18 S Slipak vs T Gibson, 2008 (replies)
wtpy: This was a hard, hard problem. I considered Rd4 but then tried to make f7 work. Not even.
   Dec-04-18 Windhorst vs K Shoup, 1985 (replies)
wtpy: Offramp, So soupcon can also mean a little bit and perhaps that is how it applies to suspicion because you have just a little evidence, not enough to know for sure. I suspect that the pun is related to the colloquial call to mealtime--Soup's on--though it is often gumbo in my neck of ...
