Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Love conquers all!

Well, I wanted to test our wonderful on-line community. Thanks to all for your contribution.

Being older is not a sickness, but it obviously seems to get you angrier. Must be because of all these sleepless night wondering about your past mistakes.

Now, if you don't mind, let's migrate to another tournament as this one contains no noteworthy game.

  Robin01: The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment one gets up in the morning and does not stop until one starts posting on this website.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Obviously another depressed American. Why are you so critical of yourself? Try some positive thinking: "Robin01 is as smart as the average guy". What is it with the american culture? Not enough travelling in other countries, where everybody else love you?

Glad to hear that trolls migrate. Goodbye.

Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Don't troll all over the place. I'm gone but then I'm not gone. Cant you bring anything useful to this site Keypushy, or just make comments about others? Yak yak yak. Let us see you kibbitz something interesting about a game for a change. See anything in these grannies games worth analyzing?
Oct-19-05  Anatooly Homedepotov: <Steppenwolf> Wow, you're right about the sleepless nights. I had a nightmare that I was you. Woke up screaming. Then I realized I was back in my room in my nursing home getting an emergency I.V. of Happy Juice.

Just be happy they don't post any developmentally challenged tournament games here.

Oh, alright dude. Let's migrate from the winter of your discontent to sunnier climes. It's been fun, cya around!

Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Homedepotov: Crybaby. Go back in the deep south, where you can get married and live a happy fruitful life. More useful than dream about being brighter people than yourself.

  keypusher: Seriously, <steppenwolf>, what happened to you? <Hayton 3> is right, you used to be a normal poster. Even a good one. Something the matter? Or do you really enjoy trolling?
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: No, keypusher, just got lost in cyberspace. Wanted to feel what it is like to be disliked. Did I succeed? Anyway, I will now fall back on my usual quiet self. Thanks.
Oct-19-05  technical draw: Hi, Steppenwolf. I play poker.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: We always play poker. Most of the time, we just don't notice it.

Oct-19-05  hayton3: And, to continue the life/poker analogy, sometimes we fail to acknowledge that the best option is to fold.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: You must do that a lot, dear hayton. Some people seem to always get the wrong cards. Maybe you should learn from more "experienced" players. The first lesson to learn is to lose with a smile. Grannies are very good at that.
Oct-19-05  hayton3: You ought to get a bigger condom - one that fits your head.

  keypusher: Anyway, <steppenwolf>, taking up your earlier challenge, here is a nice game from the tournament:

Vasiukov vs J Klovans, 2005

I can't claim to be any great expert on Vasiukov, but I've always liked what little I saw. Back when I played in tournaments in the mid-80s I used the Czech Benoni -- he played black in a number of the model games from the 1960s.

In this game he plays the King's Indian Reversed, trading off his Indian bishop but getting good squares for his knights. (One of the ideas in the Czech Benoni -- one of the few ideas in the Czech Benoni, I should say -- is to play ...Be7 and ...Bg5, getting rid of black's KB.) White gradually gets a bind and, despite a mass of pieces protecting black's king, finds a winning sacrifice of his remaining bishop.

This game won't win any Informant prizes (assuming there is still an Informant), but it's nice to see that Evgeny Vasiukov has still got it.

  keypusher: Here is Vasiukov from his heyday. As you can see, he had a real knack for "Indian" games.

Geller vs Vasiukov, 1968

Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Keypusher, this 2005 A07 has a Keres feel to it. Not badly played but it does show its out of date approach. Not enough challenge in the early development. You probably could do better, let alone the top players of nowadays.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Hayton, why are you trolling like that? Dont you have something to do with your retirement days? Insults seem to be your only way of life. Do something, try therapy, it might do you good. Talking about your violent daddy might trigger some awareness to you underlying constant anger. Look at the picture you chose: sad, constipated and violent. It seems like a difficult case of anal obstruction. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life hoping for a Flush?
Oct-19-05  hayton3: Correction - you need a smaller head and then it will fit.
Oct-19-05  Steppenwolf: Sorry, hayton, if my brain is too large for you. Can't do anything about it. What can I say: better luck in your next life? But then, a loser will always find a way to be a loser, in a billion lifetimes. I love you, man. That makes 2 of us, your mummy and me!

  chancho: <hayton3> Everything Steppenwolf is doing postwise, seems TOO contrived for my taste.Prior to yesterday,this guy's posts were quite normal, and now he starts to play the troll game.I wonder if this guy is conducting some kind of experiment.
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <chancho> true, but he's taking the bait. I fear the lighter of the fuse has allowed the gunpowder to blow up in his face.
Oct-19-05  Happypuppet: The ignore list is there for a reason...
Oct-19-05  hayton3: <Happypuppet> and you are just as welcome to use it in the same way that I'm not obliged to use it.
Oct-19-05  suenteus po 147: <hyaton3> I'm curious about something. I am a big advocate of the ignore kibitzer function on this site, but like you I am not obliged to use it. I was wondering what your reasoning is for not using it?
