|May-22-17|| ||OhioChessFan: 3 minutes in and I'm about to give up.|
|May-22-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Okay, got the first 2 moves. I'll get it now.|
|May-22-17|| ||tpstar: <Sneaky> Interesting composition. Do you want hints or spoilers yet?|
|May-22-17|| ||OhioChessFan: Okay. Really not that hard. Just have to visualize where you're at after the first move. There's one little tweak line where you can blow the win if you aren't careful.|
|May-22-17|| ||Big Pawn: I'm looking at 1. Rb7+ Ka8 2. Rb1
Now if 2...Rxb1 3. Ra6#
if 2...Rxc6+ 3. Kxc6 and the Rb1 covers the queening squares easily.
if 2...d1=Q 3. Rcxc1 and the new black queen can't give check, it's under attack and mate is threatened.
Am I missing something?
|May-23-17|| ||OhioChessFan: A little tweaky: 2...Ka7
This could be blown in blitz.
|May-23-17|| ||Big Pawn: <2...Ka7> but doesn't that just allow 3. Rcxc1 and wins?|
|May-23-17|| ||OhioChessFan: 1. Rb7+ Ka8 2. Rb1 Ka7 3. Rcxc1 dxc1Q 4. Rxc1 Ka6 |

White to play. Don't blow it.
|May-23-17|| ||technical draw: Just passing by to say hello <Sneaky>. I see you've been a member here for 15 years. A real old timer. Well, stay in touch cause one day you and I will be co-champions of the chessbookie game.|
|Aug-21-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: As far as I know, you are the active user who has been around cg.com the longest.|
Member since Jan-19-02 (a year and a half more than me!)
|Sep-13-17|| ||Sneaky: In the early days I remember Honza Cervenka, refutor, Knight13, GWGriffiths, pawntificator. |
Lots of people I can't recall, of course. If you cruise the first few hundred pages of the café you can see them. (Way back then, people actually discussed chess there!)
|Sep-14-17|| ||Joshka: Hey Sneaky good to see Irma gave you favor in her wrath!?|
|Sep-15-17|| ||Sneaky: Hi Joshka! I only lost power for a day.|
|Dec-30-17|| ||ketchuplover: Wishing ye an overtly suchessful 2018 :)|
|Jun-13-18|| ||ketchuplover: Hope you're not too hot or cold young man :)|
|Jun-15-18|| ||Sneaky: Thanks Ketchup! The cold days are gone for a while down here...|

I know <pawntificator> IRL, from the upstate NY chess scene. We're friends, although I haven't seen him FTF in a long time because he hasn't lived in NY for many years.
He is a very good human being. Can't ask for a better person than him.
|Jul-30-18|| ||posoo: Da old posoo is CRUSHED if da sounds are true.|
|Jul-30-18|| ||Penguincw: Hi <Sneaky>. Hope all is well with you. Sorry to hear of the loss of your long time friend, Daniel Freeman.|
Though I'm hearing that <you> may be Daniel Freeman himself. That's, unexpected.
|Jul-30-18|| ||posoo: i bet u dat da "cuban mastor" in da storey above is actuly ALBERTO ARTODILLO, making dis all da more puignant.|

Then it would all make sense.
Tragic loss for cg.com and everyone in our community
|Jul-30-18|| ||WannaBe: Adios my friend. I will miss you. Did not know. When I awarded the first Life Time Award to you in 2009 who you really were/are.|
Now I know. You, little Sneaky, you. =))
