|Apr-02-10|| ||DarthStapler: I find this pun to be very offensive. Witch hunts were real tragedies in which many people lost their lives. If there was a pun for a game where a Jewish player lost and it was a joke about the holocaust and gas chambers, would that be accepted too?|
|Apr-02-10|| ||Shah Mat: <DarthStapler> you're basing a perceived slight off of an imagined hypothetical? that's far more offensive to common sense than the pun could actually be to you--or to any adjusted person, really. |
there's real things to get upset over (actual real present problems), if you're inclined, look outside your window =(
|Apr-02-10|| ||DarthStapler: <Shah Mat> Okay looking - it's dark outside but I can barely see anything, although I do see the faint outline of my back deck.|
|Apr-02-10|| ||whiteshark: I can't remember where I've seen it|
|Apr-02-10|| ||JonathanJ: <DarthStapler> I suggested this pun to cg.com for a game where BlackBURNe wins over Nimzowitsch. I don't know if that's a coincidence or if they took "my" pun for another game. In this game, the pun makes less sense than in my game.|
if you feel offended by the pun, you should not play chess, because it's a war game.
|Apr-02-10|| ||whiteshark: Here is the a.m. game: Blackburne vs Nimzowitsch, 1914|
|Apr-02-10|| ||TheChessGuy: "What do we burn, apart from witches?" "More witches!!"|
|Apr-02-10|| ||Goldenraf: Actually I have notes from an old book where Capablanca says that he sacrificed the pawn knowing that white would have to waste precious moves to capture it. It's easy to see that after the pawn capture white queen moves like 7 times to re enter the game. In the mean time Capa build his forces to attack the open column.|
|Apr-02-10|| ||TheScroobiousPip: <Darthstapler> You'll be ok.|
|Apr-02-10|| ||maxi: One inquisitor to another: "Hey, it's getting chilly! Throw another witch into the fire".|
|Apr-02-10|| ||Petrosianic: <if you feel offended by the pun, you should not play chess, because it's a war game.>|
Yeah, and besides, I did the nose.
|Apr-02-10|| ||chrisowen: No ducking the issue, big prey raise the stakes. O the vanities wolfing down material. White hunts the stray pawn and circles around the queenside. The ropey middle game underneath seems like ages: black thinks sale my rooks in, it spells trouble. White postulates, Capablanca heccles I as testament for novel 12.Qxa7. Once Bd4+ the ritual rook b8 proves an unstoppabble trial, crafty play.|
|Apr-03-10|| ||kevin86: Nimzo's impudent pawns were no match for the machine...|
|Oct-08-13|| ||rccomputacion: ME PARECE MUY ACERTADO EL EL COMENTARIO DE MrSpock... A PESAR DE QUE EN EL LIBRO DE ROBERTO G GRAU "CONFORMACION DE PEONES" DICE EXACTAMENTE LO CONTRARIO... NO TENGO LA AUTORIDAD DE UN CAPABLANCA NI DE NIMZOWITCH PERO UN POCO DE SENTIDO COMÚN ME DICE QUE NOS ESTÁN VERCEANDO.|
|Jun-01-14|| ||Ulhumbrus: Capablanca said that apparently simple looking games such as this one were in fact of the most difficult nature. This suggests that a player who considers Black's play to be simple has not understood it.|
One answer is that a player has to be able to make the right choices of simple looking moves.
In that case how does he do that?
Kasparov has quoted a remark from Bobby Fischer < You have to know a lot and be able to use it>
This remark suggests the answer that a player needs to know a lot and to be able to use it in order to be able to make the right choices of simple looking moves, as Morphy, Capablanca, Fischer or Carlsen might do.
|Jun-01-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: One of my favorite Capa brilliancies.|
|Dec-16-14|| ||MindCtrol9: Since move 22 Black is much better.|
|Aug-20-16|| ||ughaibu: I wonder if Capablanca was aware of T F Lawrence vs Lasker, 1896?|
|Feb-12-17|| ||edubueno: Capablanca, que brillaba con luz propia, pensaba en ganar este famoso torneo. Jugar en primera ronda, llevando negras contra A.N. implicaba la necesidad de ganar forzando los acontecimientos. Por eso 4...d6! en lugar de la tablífera 4... Ab4 o la más tablífera 4...Cd4.|
|Feb-12-17|| ||edubueno: Al evaluar la posición después de la jugada 13 del negro,brutamente hablando, el peón de más que tiene A.N. está compensado. Se aprecia lo siguiente: Las blancas tienen utilizados 5 tiempos reales y las negras han usado 8 tiempos reales, la pieza más poderosa es el Alfil Negro, su contrario da lástima en la casilla de origen.|
|Feb-12-17|| ||edubueno: Cuando volvemos a mirar la posición, después de la jugada 16 de las negras, se aprecia que las blancas llegaron a 5 movidas reales y las negras a 10. Esto ya mostraría una ventaja para las negras, que las blancas deberían compensar con su estructura bien sólida. Aquí aparece entonces el gran error de A.N., en la jugada 17. Sin dudas era una buena réplica blanca 17 b3! oponiendo el alfil en la gran diagonal y tomando bajo control la casilla c4. En lugar de eso, el juego apresurado 17 Ad2? permite el desarrollo de la ofensiva de Capablanca a toda orquesta.|
|Feb-12-17|| ||edubueno: Después de la jugada 25 de las negras, la combinación entre el poderoso alfil de casillas negras sobre la gran diagonal y las dos torres en la columna semiabierta dejan a las blancas sin ninguna posibilidad de resistir.|
|Nov-21-17|| ||edubueno: Creo que la partida Alekhine vs Brinckmann es un mal ejemplo. 9...h6!|
|Jun-23-18|| ||keypusher: keypusher: At move 8, Black has quite a few alternatives, and will be a little worse after any one of them. Most common has been 8....Bd7; SF's choice is 8....Be7. Interestingly, after 8....g6 9.Nxc6 bxc6 10.Qa6 Qd7 11.Qb7 Rc8 12.Qxa7 Bg7 SF sees the position as almost completely equal. Instead SF prefers 9.Bg5 Bg7 10.0-0-0 with what it thinks is a sizeable advantage, as in Alekhine vs A Brinckmann, 1927 which I see <acirce> and <edubueno> cited. Engines are often an antidote to sordid materialism.|
9.Bg5 h6 is not good: 10.Bxf6 Qxf6 11.Qc4! and Black is in trouble.
|Apr-08-19|| ||saintdufus: <DarthStapler: I find this pun to be very offensive. Witch hunts were real tragedies in which many people lost their lives.>|
I imagine the "She's a witch--burn her!" scene in *Monty Python & the Holy Grail* must be excruciating for you to watch.
