  WannaBe: Currently LAD ahead of LAA in the 6th, Haren is still on the mound, I am just waiting for him to implode and give up like 8 runs...

Then again, you can never tell with him, he is one of those pitch a no-hitter and then give up 5 runs before 2nd inning kind of a player.

Go Dodgers!

  tpstar: <Jimmy> Thank you very much for the nice message. =)

Remember when you started your own business? Well I just left my group and started solo practice six weeks ago, defying the odds by trying to make it on my own. So far things have been great, and my patients are thrilled that I made this major change.

Congratulations on your Philidor win. The next time someone plays 4 ... c5, consider the In-Between Move 5. Bb5+ to trade light square Bishops:

The theoretical idea is that the d5 hole is far easier for White to exploit after Black's lsb is gone; 5 ... Bd7 (5 ... Nc6? is out) 6. Bxd7+ and then retreat with 7. Ne2. Many times you route your QN to d5 and your KN to c3 with your centralized Knights dominating the board. This is very similar to the Sicilian with an early ... e5 (1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cd 4. Nxd4 e5):

Here 5. Bb5+ Bd7 6. Bxd7+ N/Qxd7 7. Ne2 gives White a good game.

See you around. =)

  WannaBe: Ugh, internet just went down at work, AT&T is on it... Grrrrrr.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: This is great, AT&T telephone menu have gotten me running in circles.

It keeps on transferring me to the main menu and I have to start over each time. Grrrrr

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Still no internet at work.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Great, so I call AT&T (1-888-613-6330) to get an update on our trouble-shooting ticket, I spoke to a live person, then got transferred and lost connection... Great.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: The fiber optics outside office to the next junction have issues, not sure if it's cut or some rat chewed it up...

AT&T is sending out construction crew to have it fixed. We could be without internet for another day, or more.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Great video, but I, of course, have to add my own comment =))

BB: Hey, there's a white guy here with us.

  technical draw: <WannaBe> Thanks for that illegal info on the chess games forum. And yes, I can use some games on GK.

  perfidious: <WannaBe> Roger Goodell cannot undo his failure in the Ray Rice incident, but he displayed enough courage to admit how he went wrong, so that at least the NFL does not let transgressors get off scot-free:

<At times, however, and despite our best efforts, we fall short of our goals. We clearly did so in response to a recent incident of domestic violence. We allowed our standards to fall below where they should be and lost an important opportunity to emphasize our strong stance on a critical issue and the effective programs we have in place. My disciplinary decision led the public to question our sincerity, our commitment, and whether we understood the toll that domestic violence inflicts on so many families. I take responsibility both for the decision and for ensuring that our actions in the future properly reflect our values. I didn't get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will.>

  WannaBe: <NakoSonorense> Yep, woke me up =)

  Mating Net: Way to go Bugsy, you outed me! I pretend to be a mere wood pusher while I'm really sharpening my hacking skills,lol.

That article makes a lot of good points. I would rather crack some bank's firewall than scale Kramnik's Berlin Wall defense.
