|Mar-17-12|| ||technical draw: <by calling the tournament off while collecting his money?>|
Thanks for dropping by <frogbert>. Um, I wish I could understand your post though.
|Mar-17-12|| ||frogbert: td = tournament director|
|Mar-17-12|| ||technical draw: <frogbert> Yep, I keep forgetting that I am TD in every tournament!|
|Mar-17-12|| ||frogbert: yeah, it must be confusing. :o)|
|Mar-20-12|| ||jessicafischerqueen: heh
yep you still got it. I'm breaking all the rules to pledge my vote next year for your "six pete".
|Mar-20-12|| ||technical draw: TD loses a game playing against a knight from hell:
1. e4 c5 2. d4 cxd4 3. c3 Nf6 4. e5 Nd5 5. cxd4 d6 6. Bc4 Nb6 7. Bb3 dxe5 8. Qh5 e6 9. Qxe5 Nc6 10. Qg3 Nxd4 11. Bd2 Nxb3 12. Qxb3 Be7 13. Nf3 O-O 14. O-O Nd5 15. Nc3 Nxc3 16. Bxc3 b6 17.

I should have taken that darn knight on move 28 but I thought I had it trapped. I resigned because mate is unavoidable.

|Mar-21-12|| ||KKDEREK: After your "narcissistic post" I felt embarrassed..I Shouldn't give too much importance to that guy or to my avatar in my previous post. :p |
Hey, but that's human nature after all, as we see for "Shuman, the human..
|Mar-21-12|| ||technical draw: <KK> You know I almost didn't post it because it would come directly under your post and people might make a connection. There was no connection intended I just wanted to make the "best narcissist" gag. BTW, cool cartoon.|
|Mar-21-12|| ||KKDEREK: You are a class act <TD>..If had a connection would be cool anyway. After all, you would be right. ;)o)|
|Mar-21-12|| ||technical draw: Thank you for those kind words <KKD>...|

Hector Lavoe Willie Colon
Ah Ah - O No
|Mar-29-12|| ||waustad: I know what you mean about Robert Merrill. WOSU did an interview with Tucker and Merrill shortly before the death of Richard Tucker that is hilarious. I probably have it on an old video tape that doesn't play anymore, like the Bjorling show that they did one afternoon. I taped radio on slow video tape because it lasted longer in those days.|
Leonard Warren is another voice from then to remember.
|Mar-29-12|| ||waustad: <Yep, I keep forgetting that I am TD in every tournament!> But <Domdaniel> is a GM in every tournament!|
|Apr-01-12|| ||wordfunph: <TD> congratulations on your 4th place finish in the 2012 Winter Leg ChessBookie World Championship!|
|Apr-08-12|| ||falso contacto: felices pascuas, bueno, usted sabe.|
|Apr-08-12|| ||technical draw: Gracias, <falso contacto>.|
|Apr-17-12|| ||technical draw: I almost won $2,500 again with my secret formula. I picked 039 and 032 came out. According to my calculations I should hit every 64 games (4ˆ3) as opposed to the standard 10ˆ3. Right now I'm at game 45 so I'm getting close.|
|Apr-17-12|| ||technical draw: Correction: Since I don't consider outcomes with repeated numbers the standard I'm up against is 10x9x8 instead of 10ˆ3....|
|Apr-17-12|| ||NakoSonorense: <I almost won $2,500 again> Wait, what does this mean? You have won $2.5k already? Or you were close to winning again, having been close before?|
|Apr-17-12|| ||technical draw: <NakoSonorense> I won $2,500 on January 23. And yesterday I almost won again (I played 039 and 032 came out).|
|Apr-20-12|| ||waustad: There are goodies for you in the Cafe.|
|Apr-22-12|| ||waustad: Yeah, I've noticed that about youtube comments too. The only reason I can think of for that awful article he wrote is that Wagner was royally honked off at Meyerbeer and Offenbach for going to Paris and writing in French. Napoleon was still in living memory and the only thing that ever managed to unite 19th century Germany was that they didn't like the French. He picked Hermann Levi to conduct Parsifal and didn't seem to be antisemetic in his pesonal life, from anything I've been able to discover.|
