"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

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: <truepacifism> Welcome! Enjoy the site. Don't pay too much attention to negative comments, it's part of the game. Uh, you don't have a loose $20 I can borrow? Nevermind , nobody has given me anything so far.

technical draw: I will now tell you the greatest secret in the world. Don't tell anyone I spilled the beans. Billions of dollars will turn to rubbish if this is found out. OK, here it goes: Picasso painted by the numbers.

technical draw: Eljanov has a 2765 ELO but he played like a patzer. Losing the exchange in a simple tactical move then trapping his own rook. But he'll probably beat me anyway.

  technical draw: Dr. Van Pelt charges 5 cents for a visit. My insurance company won't cover that.

  WannaBe: <TD> Hey, according to the latest Leaked Panama Papers, you're worth $20.00, surely you can afford a lousy nickel!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> I was worth $20.00 when I signed up for chess games 13 years ago. Thanks to lousy investment advice I received here I am now $1,238,788.00 in the hole. By the way, how did you know I was hiding in Panama?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: There's nothing wrong with my advice to you to buy Enron. I still own 5 Trillion shares of the company.
Apr-04-16  Jim Bartle: What did you pay for those shares?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: 0.000001 per share.

  technical draw: Well, my mistake of not taking out my $500 from the ATM machine in time and watching it being swallowed back in is turning into a Frankenstein. I have not been able to solve the problem with my local bank so I decided to escalate (i am not without influence in the banking industry ).

People are going to think that there's $500 million involved because I have decided to call the bank president and the commissioner of the banking commission of the House of Representatives, a friend who goes back 50 years.

I never realized how influential I am and how many people in high places I know.

I gave the local officer plenty of time to solve a simple problem. It is now time to bring in the heavy guns. It doesn't matter if it is just $500, it might one day be $500 million of other people's money that is being mis-handled.

So I have taken off my shuffling shoes and decided to go to war. I could almost savor it! First stop the banks executive vice-president.

  technical draw: Hurray! Got my money! It pays to have connections. However it shouldn't have gotten to that since it was a relatively easy problem to fix. I guess it's true: It's not what you know but who you know.
Apr-05-16  Deus Ex Alekhina: They heard you were a part of the gang and they caved in.
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: You should have given that job to the Troop.

We would have gotten you a little interest to go with it.

  technical draw: With my newly acquired $500 I will now redraw the mother of all gerrymandered congressional districts, Chicago's 4th:

Apr-06-16  Deus Ex Alekhina: In exchange for my helpful advice (see my two previous posts in this forum), I will humbly accept a 10% gratuity of the $500. You're welcome.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Sorry <Deus>. Strangely your 10% is still stuck in the machine.

technical draw: Carly Fiorina will be the next president of the US. You read it here first.>

I meant to say vice-president.

Apr-28-16  Mr. President: I don't need a bleeding VP!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Sorry, Mr. President, but I have to underwrite you so everyone will know about my psychic abilities.
Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <Mr. President:
I don't need a bleeding VP!>

That explains Joe Biden.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <If a winning Presidential candidate dies or becomes incapacitated between the counting of electoral votes in Congress and the inauguration, the Vice President elect will become President, according to Section 3 of the 20th Amendment.>

A weird second chance for my prediction. (of course Cruz will have to beat Trump then Clinton but that's not farfetched )

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: If I found a magic lamp and the genie would grant me just one wish I would wish for world peace. Sure, and the moon is made out of green cheese.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Last night I got sleepy early. My curtains were drawn. Maybe next month I'll buy real ones.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
