  WannaBe: I honestly think <iamverywellatchess> is having a good laugh. He/She is obviously very intelligent, (Otherwise he/she wouldn't have posted that touch-mee line.) Very funny, subtle.

Now, <iamverywellatchess> knock it off. You're starting to annoy people here. I, on the other hand, think it's funny as heck.

"Help me yonder, help help me yonder", that's by that ocean-side group, bi-a-tch boys?

Feb-10-06  euripides: Ponomariov vs Akopian, 2002 gives a good idea of what Black is trying to achieve. Very tricky to pinpoint the reason why Black does so much worse in this game. After <Counterpoint>'s 20...Nxe3 21 Qxe3 Qb6 I like the look of 22 Qh3.

<who> In general terms, 13 Kb1 protects the a pawn and reduces Black's tactical options involving pins on the c file, checks or pins on the h6-c1 diagonal, and checks on d3 (e.g. with the queen on d4 and the black bishop on f6). Whether it's necessary at this stage I don't know but I think it's very often played at quite an early stage. I guess also that White is keeping his options open for the king's side attack until the knight has gone to d7. With the knight on f6, White may not want to commit to g5 because of Nh5, and he might not want to play h5 too early because of the possiblity of e5 followed by Nxg4, though this is murky.

Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: Maybe he likes "Purple Haze" by JImi Buffett: "Excuse me, while I kiss this guy."
Feb-10-06  Whitehat1963: Or how about that great AC/DC song, "Dirty Knees in the Jungle Deep"?
Feb-10-06  schnarre: must have a Madonna fan on the staff!

  WannaBe: Johnny Rivers, 'Secret Asian Man'.
Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: "Secret Asian Man": classic. I'm sure we've all made real mistakes. I used to think Sinatra was singing "lovers at Versailles" instead of "lovers at first sight."
Feb-10-06  iamverywellatchess: He/she is of course a he!

I am sorry to offend. I just like to talk on this web-site. I did not want to "annoy"! That is not my intense!

Feb-10-06  shanked: "Blinded by the light...revved up like a douche..." is my contribution.

I could never figure out why they would sing about that...

  WannaBe: Here's another one, CCR: "Don't go out tonight, it's bound to take take your life, there's a bathroom on the right."
Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: Great stuff. I'll never hear "Bad Moon Rising" the same way again.

But remember, according to the "verywell" tradition, you're not supposed to name the correct singer or group, but a related one.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: B-B-B-Benny and the Jets/She's got electric boobs ...

<schnarre> At, *everyone* is a Madonna fan. ;>D

Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: Of course Papa has a good excuse for losing this game, as he's not a full-time player but a musician: "Papa Was A Rolling Stone."

  WannaBe: <Jim Bartle: ... you're not supposed to name the correct singer or group, but a related one.> You're right, my bad...

But it's awfully hard to think of one that's related to Neil Diamond and singing about the 'store bought women, that keeps his guitar humming...' :-)

Feb-10-06  iamverywellatchess: I am very glad you can all laugh at my expanse! I am not really meaning that it is symbollich!

This is not such a nice web-page! People in Kansas of the United States are much nicer than many of you!

Accept for my neighborhood who tells me many times per day to "go away"!

Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: Some things are beyond satire.

"'I am,' I said
To no one there
An no one heard at all
Not even the chair"

Feb-10-06  jackmandoo: Just your average sicilian game. I dont this this qualifies for the game of the day. I have a quote of the day though, I said this to myself after thinking about chess for a while:

"Chess is a mystery wrapped up in an enigma, like a burrito of moves, but except of using lettuce and tomatos, maybe pawns and rooks and all of the other chess peices, and its also complicated."

Feb-10-06  psmith: <tpstar> <EmperorAtahualpa>

28...Re7 29 Rdg1+ Kh8 30. Ng7! wins I believe.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <psmith> In that line after 30. Ng7 maybe Black can defend with 30 ... Qg8, then answer 31. Nh5 with 31 ... Bg7. I was stuck on 30. Nf6 but <Cyphelium> pointed out 30. Nf4 intending 31. Ng6+, meanwhile 31 ... Bxf4 32. Qf6+ mates. Do you see an improvement after 30 ... Qg8 here?
Feb-10-06  psmith: <tpstar> I agree that 30. Nf4 is better than 30. Ng7. My idea was to play 30. Ng7 Qg8 31. Nf5 but it seems Black has good chances of holding with 31... Qxg1+ 32. Rxg1 exf5.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <psmith> Black is losing but could also try 30. Ng7 Qg8 31. Nf5 Qf7!? giving up the exchange after 32. Nxe7 Qxe7 and the Queen covers h7, or else 32. Rg7 Qxf5 33. Rxe7 Qxd3+ 34. Ka1 and Black cannot prevent the crushing 35. Rxh7+.

<Snoochies> Strike a pose = E Freedman vs T Palmer, 1991

Feb-10-06  McCool: One year anniversary of game of the day!!!
Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: I thought it would be easy to come up with all sorts of Madonna-themed puns. It isn't. My only offering:

Material Girl: Almira Skripchenko accepts a sacrifice and holds on for the win.

Feb-11-06  Whitehat1963: Who's yo' daddy, Papa?

I love it when I'm playing big Papa!

Feb-13-06  schnarre: Everyone's a musician (at least here, anyway)!!
