  Gypsy: I am all for for it, Fuzz. Lets say, the Furby Award.
May-06-04  Benjamin Lau: Lol Gypsy, that sounds wonderfully appropriate.
May-06-04  iron maiden: <Ben> I just saw your link to the picture of Furby. ROTFLMAO!!! But then I had a flashback to the time the last guy posted a link saying "this is what you look like"...
May-06-04  Benjamin Lau: Yeah, but that was because that guy's link was obscene. My link wasn't obscene, as attractive as a Furby may appear.
May-06-04  iron maiden: I know, I know, I was only joking. Although I absolutely despise Furbies...
May-06-04  Benjamin Lau: I was just joking too of course, I don't find Furbies attractive. :)
May-06-04  TrueFiendish: Still furby persists? He must have no-one else to talk to--not a happy state of affairs. He's as ill-informed as he is stubborn. The perfect soldier! (or "fodder" to use the vernacular.)

  tpstar: I finally figured out why people can't communicate with the FurBall = nobody else here speaks jive.

<FerociousBeast> Masta G funk homebro, why you be such a maja playa hata? Ay yo trip, I be crump plus all that so I come correct with the 313 line. Stop dissin' my homeboys in the crib with this drawin', flamboastin', big pimpin' doped up crackhead bizzo busta freak show. SLAP YO FACE and DEM WRONG and FOO this and FOO that - like brother M.A. would say, I pity the FOO, and the main FOO here is YOU! Lay off my posse before I get 186 serious and wax it for real. U.N.I.T.Y., bro. Peace out, 5000.

  Benzol: Have we ever had three pages of kibitzing on a daily puzzle before?

We should have some more Sarapu games for the daily puzzles. :)

May-06-04  Calculoso: Well spoken, <tpstar>. Well spoken... I couldn't have said it better myself.
May-07-04  TrueFiendish: tpstar: LOL; you're a person of many talents.
May-07-04  Lawrence: Nice photo of <FerBe> with his friend Leonardo Di Caprio at http://www.x-entertainment.com/arti...
May-07-04  pawntificator: Woo hoo!! I got a compliment from FB. I'm SO rated over 1300.

Still, this puzzle was great. I'm afraid I may have still lost had I been black...

Now I'm starting to think Black could have done just as well by playing 54...Qxd3. heh

May-07-04  ajit: Now, I had stressed in the first page of kibitzing and posted some extensive analysis with the help of a strong chess program. Though i figured out the first 2 moves quickly, I still haven't been able to find a win for black. And the analysis by crafty has been seen atleast 10 moves ahead by my crafty:-). The evaluation drops to -1.2 after 10 moves continuing crafty's line.

  Benzol: <pawntificator> 54...♕xd3 55.♕g7+ :)

This game was played (probably in Athens) whilst the New Zealand Olympic team was on it's way to the Skopje Olympiad in 1972.

May-08-04  pawntificator: <Benzol>...if white moves the queen away from the defense of mate on f1, he has to either find mate or keep perpetual check, which should be easy enough. Still, I agree with <ajit> on this one. Perhaps blacks resignation was a little hasty.

  patzer2: <AgentRgent> <If 55. Rxg6 Bxg2+ 56. Kxg2 hxg6 57. b6, then 57...f3+!> <There is a White Bishop on f3.. so 57...f3+ is not possible.> You are correct, as I was apparently looking at 55. Rxg6 Bxg2+ 56. Bxg2 hxg6 57. b6 57...f3+! So, after 55. Rxg6 Bxg2+ 56. Kxg2 hxg6 57. b6, the simple 57...Rb1 is winning. The Black King will maneuver to c7 and stop the passed White b-pawn from queening, while freeing up the Rook to maneuver for the win elsewhere.

Fritz 8 gives it a decisive Black advantage after 57...Rb1 58. b7 Rb2+ 59. Kh1 Kd6 60. h4 Kc7 61. Be4 Rb1 62. Kg2 (-2.66 @ 20/50 depth & 826kN/s).

Jan-09-05  aw1988: <tpstar> Ahh, you are making my sides ache. :)
May-09-05  Backward Development: <FerociousBeast: SLAP YO FACE SLAP YO FACE SLAP YO FACE!!!!!! U BOTH DEM WRONG YA THERE HEY!!!!!! MUST FEEL LIKE A FOOL ACTING SO CONFIDENT AND THEN SOME FOOL CORRECTS U AND IS WRONG What about 56. KxG2... Btw you FOO labeled G6 G5 AND IT AINT A ROOK UP FOO SLAP YO FACE> LOL. What a spaz.

  Richard Taylor: Ortvin Sarapu was from Estonia -came here (New Zealand) in the 50s (he lived in Auckland) - he won the NZ Championships about 20 times over the years - I saw him a lot (of course he was mostly playing in grade above me) - I played him about 5 times (lost about 4 I think) but in one game - we both had an hour each (sudden death) - I obtained a draw -in fact I was winning -I must dig that game out -BUT -of course Sarapu was always a far better player than I - he could calculte very deeply and his concentration powers were very great (he wasn't a pacer !) - he also told me how to play tournaments when there was one hour each - I had tried to calculate some attacking line - he said (to this effect) - no - you dont have time - play the best move -of course calculate - but don't go for obscurities unless you are sure - and by an large that worked for me... he was an excellent all round apler but his postional knowledge was very great - he had a great sense of humour and an interesting personality: This might have been played around the time he went to the Nice Olympiad -my father went as an observor there (and as part of a trip)...

  Richard Taylor: <benzol> is probably right - I recall him talking about being in Athens - there was an earthquake - and some of the players and others panicked and started running out and he said to people -no it will be ok and just relaxed with a cigarette or something!! And nothing bad happened - per se -maybe a few bricks fell own...lol

[I realise this is "old" kibitzing]
