   Jan-18-18 Csom vs A Planinc, 1974 (replies)
morfishine: Very imaginative and exciting play by White, but <25.Qe6+> followed by <26.c6> is stronger, more straightforward & wins outright *****
   Jan-17-18 Svidler vs Yifan Hou, 2018 (replies)
morfishine: <Caissanist> On your comment: <... Maybe her nerves just aren't strong enough to be successful at this level?> I think its more a matter of whats required preparation-wise for a tournament like this. Some players are great at matches but only ok at tournaments & vice ...
   Jan-17-18 Tata Steel (2018) (replies)
morfishine: <PhilFeeley> True about Caruana, but jeepers creepers, Hou just took her 4th loss in 5 games...Yikes! :(
   Jan-17-18 Aronian vs A Giri, 2017
morfishine: Ugly game by Black, but thats just the way it goes sometimes (pretty often for me at Chess960 lol) *****
   Jan-17-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
morfishine: <Richard Taylor> On your comment: <...When he was young Anand was one of the world's best tacticians> He is young and he is one of the world's best tacticians

   Jan-16-18 Botvinnik - Smyslov World Championship Return Match (1957) (replies)
morfishine: <Petrosianic> lol, <GT3RS> is a certified idiot. I've always felt that Botvinnik has to be rated as one of the toughest champions. Winning the title 3 times takes a huge amount of moxy. Lesser individuals would retire after losing the title, not having the commitment ...
   Jan-16-18 Charousek vs Skultety, 1891
morfishine: What's a "Skultety"? The urban dictionary says its a person who does not know when to shut their mouth. Perhaps thats why he was crushed: he refused to stop talking while he was playing
   Jan-16-18 Louis Stumpers (replies)
morfishine: Einstein's riddle is perhaps too famous, whats fun is the solution

  morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Your response raises an interesting side-line: Finally, the Gators have a prototype QB with Felipe Franks. This guy is 6-6 230 LBS with a rocket arm. He just needs time to develop

  thegoodanarchist: <his guy is 6-6 230 LBS with a rocket arm. He just needs time to develop>

Cam Newton-type size! Will he/they be great next year?

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <The defense looked good with 2 pick sixes. >

One more thing - big difference between college and pro.

In the NFL, two pick-6s is almost a guaranteed win.

  morfishine: Well, hurricane Maria has basically destroyed Puerto Rico, what with being hit with 150+ mph winds, which pretty much tear off roofs without much discrimination

If you want to help these people, now is the time to contribute. I live in Central Florida and was slightly inconvenienced from Hurricane Irma being without power for a whole day.

What the people in Puerto Rico are enduring is much worse and could go on for months.

Contribute the best you can while avoiding scam sites. Rico was already under a water rationing when Maria hit

God Bless

  morfishine: Did you see where Congress is trying to force the release of the remaining JFK documents from the National Archives?

Whats funny is the leader of the effort is Senator 'Chuck' Grassley from Iowa

What does Grassley Knoll about the assassination?

There's also Congresswoman Louise Slaughter helping out, but I won't go there

*None of this is made up


Premium Chessgames Member

<What does Grassley Knoll about the assassination?>

ahhh ahaha

One of your best, my dear <Morf>. AHAHAHAHA

I believe Mitch McConnell is holding it up, due to the investigation of his sexual ethics violations.

<sexual ethics violations>

I'm sure you're familiar with the phrase:

Manlicker McConnell

  morfishine: Any discussion on the US Revolutionary War, War of 1812, US Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW1, WW2, Korean War or Vietnam War is most welcome here.


Nov-26-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Okay. Us English burnt down the White House. Great stuff. I'd be grateful x20000000 if someone did it today. Go on Madonna.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <DrWinstonOboogie> LOL, I have much sympathy with your comments, especially for all those British soldiers shot down at the gates of New Orleans after the war was over. A pity communication was so slow

A strange war was the War of 1812, what with the massively powerful British Navy finding itself utterly baffled in its inability to neutralize a measly 6 United States frigates

A big current pity in the US today is that many voters voted for Trump to keep that Commie Hillary out. I did, and its the first time I've done that: vote for somebody to keep the other candidate out. Sadly, it was a necessity to stop the movement toward communism, which is basically, worldwide slavery

Trump is a sad case, but he's better than those Social-Democrats who don't give a rats arse about the United States Constitution


Dec-01-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: I was only messing apart from burning down the White House, lol. Anyways I know you love this stuff so have a look when you've got time.. It's JFK's Life story, it's over 3 hours so I recommend getting exactly half way through and then watching it. It's not conspiracy oriented it's just a biography from those who were there but after watching it, and after seeing what he did to the CIA I'm convinced the CIA were involved in his assassination.. Here's a President I could respect

Let me know when you've watched that because I want to point out a few things I noticed that I'd never thought of before.

  morfishine: Thanks much Mark, I enjoy JFK related stuff

  offramp: Good to see you on the Statistics Page as one of the most frequent kibitzers. Did you know you were on it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <offramp>!

There are many links at <CG> that I am unaware of. Perhaps I should maximize my premium membership and try to visit some of these links

Sorry I don't comment on all your witty remarks, I read most if not all and find them highly enjoyable!

This year I will nominate you for funniest poster


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Thank you! I always look forward to <your> posts. They are really funny!

  morfishine: Hey <Dr Winston OBoogie> did you see Rooney's 59 yard goal to secure the hat trick? Incredible:


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Merii Kurisumasu!! Don't touch my moustache!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: I hope that you have a very happy new year!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Happy New Year <morf>!

  thegoodanarchist: < offramp: Merii Kurisumasu!! Don't touch my moustache!!>


Jan-03-18  Dr Winston OBoogie: Morf.. I've only just checked the forums now mate (It's been a crazy month!) so I didn't see your post. I saw Rooney getting abused by Utd fans yesterday which just shows you how fickle football is. I'm not Rooney's biggest fan but he did more for that club bar any player than Ryan Giggs over the last 20+ years so I was very disappointed with Man Utd fans. Astonishing placement from Rooney though, pity he couldn't do it for England after.... <2004!>

Anyways.. You voted for Trump (I'm not having a go at you) so what do you think of his first year in charge and what do you reckon to his tweets that people are <pleading> with the GOP to go 25th amendment over?

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Happy New Year to you, too, <morf>!
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf>

I hope you understand that my "outrage" regarding the GOTD pun was tongue-in-cheek, about as real as fake news.

I am glad the pun got used.

I am not so optimistic that "The Smeller's the Feller" will be used.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Absolutely

GL with "Smellers"
