Game Collection: ALWAYS BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR WAYS TO CREATE PINS
|Jun-28-14|| ||perfidious: Reshevsky's score of 2/5 vs Alekhine, moreover, includes a win for the champion in 1932, when Reshevsky was not yet a title contender.|
Might be that <SteinitzLives> is a closet Geller fan-y'know, the man who had plus scores against every world champion in history, including those titleholders he never faced! Would be a pity if Reshevsky were to rain on Geller's parade. One thing sure: <Steinitz> does right well with sweeping generalisations, as it is much easier lumping everyone into nice, neat categories than to think for oneself.
|May-19-16|| ||goodevans: What on earth made Reshevsky think that opening the a-file was a good idea?|
|May-19-16|| ||offramp: A good pun for today. Based on Alakazam (spelling?).|
|May-19-16|| ||JimNorCal: Thanks. Had no idea what to make of the "pun"|
|May-19-16|| ||morfishine: The Miriam Webster dictionary has this for the origin of "alakazam": a nonsense word (of obscure origin) First Known Use: 1937|
Which pretty much sums up this play-on-name title
|May-19-16|| ||offramp: <morfishine: ...Which pretty much sums up this play-on-name title >|
My reply was also a pun. The word is used to put spells on people.
|May-19-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: Alakazam may stand for:
-an incantation or magic word along the lines of Abrakadabra
-Alakazam the Great, a Japanese 1960 anime film
-the final evolutionary form of the Pokémon Abra, Kadabra, and Alakazam
-The Magic Land of Allakazam, a television series from the 60's of the magician Mark Wilson
From wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaka...

I knew that I'd seen it before. I am thinking it might be in the "Black Book" as well, but I don't feel like digging it out right now to see.
The Black Book = The Encyclopedia of Chess Middlegames.

Offiser PUN, you are a solution in search of a PROBLUM.
|May-19-16|| ||Howard: First time I saw the position after 34...Rd2 was in Fred Reinfeld's ancient book How to Play Chess Like a Champion. It was in the first couple chapters, as I recall.|
|May-19-16|| ||morfishine: <posoo> You are so funny, I like you, you know I've toned things down quite a bit, you know, smell the roses, enjoy life a little, don't be so uptight....its funny, no?|
|May-19-16|| ||thegoldenband: It oughta be "Alekh-a-Sam", no?
"Alexa-Sam" sounds like an antidepressant or something.
|May-19-16|| ||jith1207: <posoo> even though you terms to get into controversies and even as I don't always understand your language, your posts bring me a laugh. Think I need to perfect that diction to really appreciate that.|

|Aug-15-18|| ||GlennOliver: Alekhine saw that finish at least as early as 28. Nb6 |
|Aug-16-18|| ||HeMateMe: It ran as smooth as a composed problem, the finish. But, this was against Reshevsky, not a NN, so you know AAA didn't make it up.|
