ChessBookie Game

Glorious winner of one third of the 7th Annual Caissar Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Username Selection (and that's official...)

"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

SwitchingQuylthulg: Three non-qualifiers made the top 10 this year (according to the current standings), with a fourth in 11th place and a fifth who was actually in the lead at one point. It's not at all impossible, or even ridiculously difficult, to catch up... if you're competent, that is.

  brankat: Hi <Switch>.

Today I was re-reading one of Your old posts (March-08-2008), which is a humorous critique of all of the "classical" line champions, from Steinitz to Kramnik.

A posting masterpiece, deserving a status of chess-lore icon!

I wonder whether it would be OK with You if I was to re-post the text in my forum as one of the "proverbs.

Thank You.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: This one I guess: Vladimir Kramnik

The good old times... Feel free to use it, though I fear it's not very proverbial. If you want it in proverb form, try this:

"The old champion is like a fridgeful of beer - with any luck you can finish him off eventually, but by then he's mostly empty and half a dozen other guys have turned up." - Immigrant Canadian proverb

Uhmm I happen to dig symphonic metal especially Nightwish. They're your countrymen. I was just wondering if they ring a bell to you?

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <ahmadov> Welcome back!

<kudubux> I know who they are but not all that well; I couldn't name any of their songs or albums. (In fact, I don't listen to any music much, for reasons largely unclear even to myself...) They got a lot of media attention here a few years back when they kicked out their lead singer and eventually got a replacement, so even I haven't managed to stay completely ignorant ;-)

Dec-29-10  kudubux: You're not listening to any music? You must be working in Antartica! :)

Must be one hell of firing someone! I liked the former female singer, though.

I wish I have the same media attention when I got...ooopppsss never mind.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Wow, I actually won one third of a Caissar, something not many have ever managed ;-) Despite not even being the most misspelled name anymore!

Thanks everybody, including the people who voted my rivals; without them, I'd have won a much more boring and mundane full Caissar.

Yes, you've achieved the elusive "third," along with three other people, unless I've got my maths wrong.

  Honza Cervenka: Call for Aneta’s voters! Vote early, vote often!

We are losing the race with a great favourite Alex Loukota. Despite of getting in just two days more votes than in both previous one week long rounds the gap between leader and our girl is widening more and more. They are ahead of us for more than one thousand votes now. Your help is much needed! If you want to support Aneta, just click on http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m..., flag the name <Aneta Červenková> in the grey box on the right side of the screen and hit the <hlasovat> button below. If you see a notification “Děkujeme za váš hlas” (Thank you for your vote) after that, then you have voted successfully. And if you see a notification “Došlo k opakovanému hlasování” (Repeated voting has occurred), then you should try to vote a bit later again....:-D

  jessicafischerqueen: QUESTION:

If I feel "nostalgic" about <gory pagan festivals>, do you think that means I need to get help?

If so, from what quarter?

Like, should I start seeing a psychiatrist, or should I hire a chess coach?

Frankly I'm a little confused about the whole issue.

Feb-15-11
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <jessicafischerqueen> In my experience, the best way to deal with nostalgy is to yield to it. You want to watch all those old movies again, you don't just sit still silently missing them, do you? No, you go and steal them from someplace. Similarly, if you want old pagan festivals back again, you should go somewhere they still happen.

You're already partway there: you've joined the neo-pagan cult of Nucluz, originally worshipped as a sun god in early medieval Schwarzwald. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to have satisfied your hunger for gore. I would suggest any of three courses of action:

1) Assume a more active role in the cult you're already in. Go to the elders and demand more and gorier festivals.

2) Join any number of other cults. Pagan religions tend to be polytheistic so you can safely worship other gods without abandoning Nucluz.

3) Build a time machine and fast-forward to the next winter festival. You'll probably get a couple Nobels to boot.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Good grief did you just make up the word "Nucluz"?

At first I thought it might be a <HP Steak Sauce Lovecraft> god, so I googled it and came up with this:

<Hyginvs et Polybius de castris romanorum >

by "Hyginvs and Polybius."

Please tell me you haven't read this book, which is in Latin.

I'm askeered.
