Totally agree. It's what cg is all about!
|Dec-24-09|| ||zaxonus: Instead of 34 .. Bxe2+, black could have plaid 34 .. Bxh2, and there is no way out of the threat Rg1#.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Know Jehovah: Hello everyone. We are the only religion that uses Gods name Jehovah and tells of a resurrection of loved ones in an incoming New World Order of things, through Jehovah's Heavenly Kingdom in the hands of his beloved son Jesus, where sadness is finally gone.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: Nice work of a committee...:-)|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Chess Carnival: Oh.. Steinitz played a very interesting qu.... WOW!! Tpstar's post is so cool! Merry christmas everyone!!|
|Dec-24-09|| ||pawn to QB4: Couldn't they have got him earlier with 28...Rxg2+ 29. Kf1 Rag8...he can even try distracting them with 30.d8=Q and get mated with two queens to none after 30...Rg1+ and Nc3#. But possibly this would diminish the Christmas cheer of torturing poor old Steinitz in the endgame.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||jonico: Tpstar...I got a name for that kind of post: Antipoetry...fantastic...Merry Christmas to all|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Marmot PFL: Games with q vs 3 pieces always interesting.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Eisenheim: a fun game - <Stonewaller2> save your ignorant racist comments for a different forum other than chessgames. and <Dillinger> shame on you for encouraging him.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||zanshin: As <RV> has noted, <tpstar>'s post is a tough act to follow ;-) He should have posted it in the Kibitzer's Corner because it might not be as noticed here. (Thanks for that award Tony ;-))|
|Dec-24-09|| ||mysql: I like tpstar's poem. So many references to the So page. :o)|
|Dec-24-09|| ||xenophon: 13/7 early|

I agree, but your comments should be directed against <Know Jehovah> too. This is a chess site, not a forum for discussing, let alone advertising, religion. I am contacting CG.com to try to get this posting removed.
|Dec-24-09|| ||superstoned: damn that was an awesome game!|
|Dec-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Steinitz= totally owned|
|Dec-24-09|| ||brainzugzwang: <tpstar: "... Short draw specialists punished by 'We Built This City'">|
Wow -- that's rather harsh for Dec. 24. Cruel and unusual, even. Where's your Christmas spirit?
(LMAO -- sitting at work, watching snow and freezing rain falling outside my window. Needed to read those posts. Thanks)
|Dec-24-09|| ||sfm: What's the reply on 14.Qd7 ?|
|Dec-24-09|| ||nfazli: <tpstar> very funny, I rarely read long posts, enjoyed yours, merry xmass|
|Dec-24-09|| ||fm avari viraf: I relished the game as well as the <tpstar> lovely posts. You are on my favourite list.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Annie K.: Thanks, Tony! Vintage <tpstar> poem. :D|
Merry Christmas, Doc! =)
|Dec-24-09|| ||SufferingBruin: <tpstar> That was flat out fun to read. Thank you.|
|Dec-25-09|| ||OhioChessFan: <Some scholars say the three Kings didn't arrive at the stable of the newborn Christ's birth in Bethlehem, but visited the home of Jesus and brought their gifts after he was two years old. >|
They clearly were not at the birth. Some shepherds made it there that night, but not the Magi. Matthew 2:11 simply says they went to a "house" sometime after the birth. It's odd how something so plainly wrong has entered the collective consciousness.
Per TPStar's poem, anyone want to learn about the Laffer Curve?
Per Know Jehovah affirmation, I won't respond here, but if anyone would like to discuss it, see me at my forum.
|Dec-25-09|| ||keypusher: Nice, <tpstar>!
In case it hasn't been pointed out, "Hoff" is not David Hasselhoff but instead (I am sure) Leopold Hoffer, a leading figure in English chess journalism for 30 years.
|Jan-04-10|| ||kevin86: Too many players and pieces for Steinitz to hold back. A good Christmas game.|
|Apr-06-19|| ||tpstar: <This game may not be completely sound, but it sure is a lot of fun to watch.> A wacky opening by White throws King safety out the window. I like how Black's centralized Bishops rule the board while menacing the White King.|
<Steinitz might have resigned sooner... was he hoping for a blunder from a committee?> Maybe the drinking contest rules were not clear, or they forgot.
<Rybka analyzes the Queen sac as sound(?) for black with the continuation 12...d8 (-.2, 18 ply). However, after 12...f8 Rybka evaluates the position as advantage white (+.2). Black's eventual win comes from white's follow-up play, especially 14)e1 (much better was d7) 15)d2 (better was b5) and 18)d3. After 18 black has an advantage of -1.5 (almost a knight).> Good to know.

<anyone want to learn about the Laffer Curve?> On a chess site? Talk about off topic.
