Aug-16-04  Kaspy2: Orlov cites this game as study material in his book BKT. Its the main line in the mexican. In move 3 white tries to stop ...e5 and plans center expansion with d5. Chances for original play in this variant.

  Benzol: The White player's name is begging for a pun.
Aug-16-04  Kaspy2: right <Benzol> Orlov demonstrated his pet line surmounting inumerable ramifications, but white did not prove to be the USS Invincible.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: I know of HMS Invincible but not USS Invincible.
HMS Invincible was sunk.
Aug-16-04  Lawrence: <Benzol>, what shocking news. Why, she was afloat just yesterday.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Lawrence> Her namesake, sunk in the Battle Of Jutland 1916. Sadly only 6 men survived from a crew of over 1000 men.
Aug-16-04  Lawrence: I shouldn't joke about things like that, my father served as a young lad in the Royal Navy during WWI and was lucky to come out of it alive. The present one is the 6th incarnation.

btw, <Benzol>, are you familiar with the story of the "Wilhelm Gustloff"? I saw a doc. about it last night on TV. One of the many references on internet is

  Benzol: <Lawrence> Thanks for the link. I was totally unaware of the "Wilhelm Gustloff". Although part of the Kriegsmarine it's sad that she was considered a legitimate military target with so many civilians on board. Btw What ship(s) did your Dad serve on.
Aug-16-04  Lawrence: <Benzol>, don't know the name, it was a munitions carrier whose sister-ship was blown to smithereens and the family thought my Dad was serving on the one that went down (or up). Some months later when my father walked in the front door they really did think it was a ghost.

  Benzol: Glad to know that he was one of the lucky ones.
Aug-16-04  Calchexas: Is that name real?

(That was a pun.)

Aug-16-04  Calchexas: Nobody got it, did they? :(
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Calchexas> Check out my first post on this thread. :)
Aug-16-04  Calchexas: I was referring to the pun itself, "Is that name real?" Nevermind. I think it escaped everybody.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <   Calchexas: Is that name real? > I got it, but kept mum because I could not make a Continuum Hypothesis counter-pun to match. My tries were either not funny or not mathematically correct. One could say, I had no measurable success. :-|
Aug-17-04  Calchexas: <Gypsy>: Heh, bet that one came to you just as you were posting. The majority of the general population would be lost on CH jokes anyway, so it matters very little if they're not funny.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <Heh, bet that one came to you just as you were posting.> Yup, guilty as charged.

< it matters very little if they're not funny.> True, but your quip set the bar at a high standard and I did not want to lower it. The main purpose of my post was to let you know that your joke was heard and appreciated.

Wish I had known back then. (laughs)

In 1991, I played Orlov in Philadelphia and responded with 3.Nc3; got wiped out in short order.
