  offramp: Black's attack seems a bit improvised; it gives me the impression of being thought out move-by-move - busking, I call it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  vonKrolock: <offramp> Winter dedicates one of his "Chess-Notes" to a question that apparently started by one of of Your own posts here. Can You tell us more about this?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Oh dear! It looks like one of my supposedly 'funny' posts has missed the mark again. I do apologise and I hope that the damage is not too serious; I never imagined that the quote would be used in a book!
May-23-05  acirce: I thought that was absolutely hilarious. Once again, LOL!
May-23-05  Ziggurat: LOL! <offramp>, you're now officially part of chess history!
May-23-05  hintza: ROFL!!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Do you guys want your heads to end up on top of the demonstration board!!??
May-23-05  hintza: LOL! :-)
Mar-23-12  Julian713: Fun GOTD!

Also, I want to know the story behind the previous discussion on this page :D I can't seem to locate the chess-note that vonKrolock is referring to...

Mar-23-12  sevenseaman: Wonderful! Dragging the White K to doom a bit unceremoniously.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <Julian713> The whole unusual story can be found at the following link, just over half way down, with the title "Falsification" It is quite a funny episode.....
Mar-23-12  rilkefan: White should have just ignored the black Q (who has parked herself on f6 for some reason) and just developed. 10.Qd2 was much better for white, as above. 11.g4 was an unnecessary weakening. 11...Qh4 was rather stronger than ...Qe7. 17...Qf4 wins a bunch of material immediately.
Mar-23-12  sofouuk: <offramp><It is quite a funny episode>you and your faux humble penchant for ludicrous understatement. needless to say it's firmly in the running for the funniest thing that's ever been imagined in the history of the universe award, let alone the funniest thing that has ever actually happened in the history of the universe award. dying in my bed many years from now (well one hopes) once more the name <offramp>! will flash into my head, and a final derisive snort of laughter will explode from my twitching nostrils, leaving a lifeless corpse behind

... to anyone who doesn't know what they're talking about, stop what you're doing and go and find out NOW

Mar-23-12  KingV93: Grabbing pawns and other material while your King in on the run seems to inevitably lead to disaster.
Mar-23-12  LoveThatJoker: <offramp> "A Szeged slugger." That's awesome, man!

Rock on! :D


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <sofouuk> & <LoveThatJoker> You crazy guys have made my day! Thank, fellas!

I admit that I always laugh at the "head on top of the demonstration board" gag... It is SO far out!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: One of those types of games where it starts as a Pirc, then goes to the Modern.
Mar-23-12  Rook e2: Fun game but not of high quality
Premium Chessgames Member
  kingscrusher: Oh my word

Kitchlew can certainly be dangerous

I remember the old quickplays where he and Salem were good friends. Salem was an incredible rapid chess player - and even succeded in irritating many British GM's including Julian Hodgson who went specially out of his way to compete on the weekend rapid just to beat Salem.

I remember this incredible analysis they were both doing on games - it was really quite awe inspiring.

Mar-23-12  pericles of athens: looks to me like 11.g4 and 12.Bxf4

are bad moves.

Mar-23-12  ZZpatzer: <kingcrusher> I can just hear you in your (BTW excellent) analysis talking about 5. f3 as a "weakening pawn move", I just don't see the utility of this move
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: funny GOTD-white king wanders and then he is forced to lock his escape door,and then is mated...
Mar-23-12  LoveThatJoker: <offramp> Thanks, man! Yeah: the "head on top of the demonstration board" is hilarious - it makes for a totally iconoclastic and hilarious image!

Good for you for becoming a unique part of the intrigue involved in an actual World Championship Match, man!
