Jan-15-04  panigma: Anyone know of a collection of games in which the promoted pawn becomes a knight?
Jan-15-04  PinkPanther: <Gandalf plays like a patzer here!> Probably just tired from the whole journey to destroy the One Ring :-)
Jan-15-04  Whitehat1963: Lol! Yeah, clearly, Gandalf could have used Frodo's, Bilbo's, Aragorn's and Legolas's help here!

  Sneaky: Gandalf is a smoker, and in modern tournaments smokers are at a distinct disadvantage.
Jan-15-04  Whitehat1963: I'm a bit slow, you'll have to explain.
Jan-15-04  Shadout Mapes: That dawg Gandalf be flyin', if you catch my drift. He be tokin' too much pipe-weed!
Jan-16-04  bumpmobile: Panigma- Sneaky has a collection of pawn underpromotions. I don't know how to include a link, but there should be a link to "Game Collections" on the home page. The collection is titled "Underpromotions"

Jan-16-04  panigma: Thanks.
Feb-06-05  aw1988: A pentium is never slow, Junior Baggins, nor is he quick. He operates precisely how he wants to.
Feb-06-05  Saruman: <aw1988> Stop "qouting" Ian Mckellan from FOTR! If you continue to do so we might have some people from <> coming over to us, and we dont want that to happen do we- its a spam-forum.
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: what? I was not under the impression that computers resign. Maybe Gandalf ran out of time right afterward.
