Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-27-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <14.Qxc6> (hehe i forked both Lasker's rooks, take this! haha) <14...Re6> (simple question: what do you prefer to lose: [a] a queen or [b] a game) <15.> (#$?***#$%!!!)

Funny stuff.

Nov-28-06  tino72: Reminiscent of a story from a former Irish champion:

Eamonn Keogh

(You can find an audio recording of this at Mark Orr's Irish Chess Archive.)

"I'll tell you a funny story. I was once asked to present the prizes at the community games out in Ballyfermot in Dublin and as part of the day's activities I gave a simultaneous against all the kids who'd won a prize. I saw a pretty queen sacrifice on one of the boards and played the move. Then, when I came round again, this red haired freckled eight year old swiped my queen and called over his mates who clustered round the board. Next time around I made a quiet pawn move and the kid was showing the captured queen to all his mates. The next time around I said check, and the next time around I said mate. He looked up and his face was bright red and he said "Well **** ya mister!" from the depth of his heart"

Nov-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <tino72> Thanks, that's a nice story. It seems that chess can always offer a few of those, doesn't it? :)

This position (Black to move) is given on p.141 of <Lasker's Chess Magazine>, vol.ii, July 1905. The game itself is #712 in <Whyld 1998>, citing <LCM>, with <Moves 1-9 are reconstructed.>

Fair enough except Lasker has: <An interesting position arose after a few moves of a Queen's Gambit in an "individual" game without time limit.>

A free (non-premium) membership to anyone who can outdo Whyld and satisfy both stipulations.
