If I do not remember thee,

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

technical draw: The greatest major league record is Fernando Tatis' two grand slams in one inning (also a record 8 RBI's in one inning). But the funny thing and (probably) unknown is that he came up in the next inning with the bases loaded again! But this time no home run. I really think ...

technical draw: <Boomie> Pocket 3's with Q83 showing has only moderate chances of winning. After 2 raises I'll assume my opponent has pocket Q's. and fold. I know it's hard hard to fold with any pair but you have to play the odds.

  WannaBe: Feelin' better? You were gone for 2 weeks... Maybe you a trip (vacation)?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Thanks <WannaBe>. No, nothing wrong, just a little laziness.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Language is sound. Sound is frequency. Men and women speak in different frequencies. So how the heck do they understand each other? Ooops, sorry, they don't.

  diceman: <technical draw: In a list of anxiety symptoms I found: Fear of Impending Doom.>

Existing gives me more anxiety vs. impending.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman>. Let me clarify the difference. If you're in your house and are afraid to leave it because you fear a grand piano falling on your head that's fear of impending doom.

If you are walking down the street and look up and see a piano falling rapidly towards your head that's existing doom. Got it?

In both cases the pianos are Steinway baby grands.

  diceman: <technical draw: <diceman>.

a grand piano>

Hey, diceman got class,
diceman don't dirty his hands on no $1000 pianna.
He plays classy stuff, like that Chinese song, "Chopsticks."

(though I did once buy a used
electric keyboard, for a middle C-note)

diceman even has his very own candle opera!

<If you are walking down the street and look up and see a piano falling rapidly towards your head>

I was thinking of something simpler,
like waking up in the morning, in 2016.

<look up and see a piano falling rapidly towards your head>

<the pianos are Steinway>

...wasn't that a Led Zeppelin song?
"and she's buying a Steinway to heaven."

  technical draw: <technical draw: In a list of anxiety symptoms I found: Fear of Impending Doom. Thank you, thank you. That is MY contribution to psychiatry. I had never heard it used until I coined it about 10 years ago.>

That's true. It now appears on DSM-V

Jul-18-16  falso contacto: Magnus beats So with a page of TD's openings book. Not so bad.

  technical draw: This is the game <falso contacto> is talking about:

Carlsen vs W So, 2016

It's listed as a Berlin but it's really a Ruy Lopez Exchange.

  Party Animal: TD, that sounds like the beginning of the Apocalypse. It has been said that the Anti-Christ will come from Europe.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Party Animal> Yes, a lot of biblical interpretation points to that. However I'm steering clear of the subject having been hammered by my 2015 comments.

  technical draw: I went to a friends house in Bangkok once. We had some beers and I had to go to the bathroom. He told me where in was and when went in I got a tremendous surprise. He had a Shank Urinal!.. I had never seen a urinal in a house before but I started thinking, why not? How come there are no urinals in private homes? It seems like a convenience and a money saver too. All hail the Shank urinal!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Party Animal: Yo TD, probably because going number two in those doesn't work out so well. ; P
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Party Animal> Here's the set-up: Sink, Urinal, Toilet and Shower. Maybe the house used to be a bar.
