Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you...

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do
Now I am a traveler from both time and space

   Sep-16-19 C Coppola vs B Macias Murillo, 2009 (replies)
 
lost in space: Donít get it. Black is much better. I only find moves losing for white, the best seems to be to give the exchange (34. Rxd5)
 
   Sep-02-19 I A Horowitz vs NN, 1940 (replies)
 
lost in space: My first instinct was 13 Rxf7 and somehow mate soon. But this somehow is not that easy and 13. Rxf7 is not that forcing. So back to start. Next I saw 13. Ne7+ Nxe7 14. Bxf7# and finally I got the most elegant and esthetic 13. Rg6+ fxg6 14. Nf6# There are less esthetic side ...
 
   Aug-26-19 Judit Polgar vs P Chilingirova, 1988 (replies)
 
lost in space: I love Mondays! 17. Qxf8+ Kxf8 (only move) 18. Bh6+ Kg8 (only move) 19. Re8#
 
   Aug-25-19 Carlsen vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
 
lost in space: I think not Ding has to be very careful but Magnus. The black position seem to be a bit better from my perspective.
 
   Aug-12-19 Tiviakov vs T Roussel-Roozmon, 2009 (replies)
 
lost in space: I love Mondays! 26. Rxg7+ Kxg7 27. Nf5+ and the queen is lost, enough for a 1:0 There is a combo I saw first, but this one is of course less effective than the one given above: 26. Rxg7+ Kxg7 27. Qxf6+ Kxf6 28. Nd5+ and 29. Nxc3. Still to prove that this is won.
 
   Aug-06-19 Spielmann vs E Eliskases, 1932 (replies)
 
lost in space: Saw 37. Ba6 which is winning and didn't took the time to look for a better move.
 
   Aug-05-19 J Aagaard vs Fuad Ahmed Mohamme Mufleh, 2006 (replies)
 
lost in space: I love Mondays! 28. Ne7+ A: 28...Bxe7 29. Qh7# B: 28. Kg7 29. Qh7#
 
   Jul-30-19 Bologan vs Bacrot, 2001 (replies)
 
lost in space: First I thought that it is 30. Nb4+ Ka1 31. Nc2# but ist is no mate, as White can play 31...Kb1. So how to do the same with that option? Took me a while to find 30. Nc1+ Ka1 31. Nb3# Nice puzzle
 
   Jul-29-19 Benko vs I A Horowitz, 1968 (replies)
 
lost in space: 20. Qg8+ and smothered mate to follow.
 
   Jul-23-19 Seirawan vs Timman, 1990 (replies)
 
lost in space: Got that quickly
