  al wazir: So there, <MAJ>. (Pouting.)
Dec-16-08  MostlyAverageJoe: Thanks, <al wazir>! You saved me from the terrible fate of getting a fifth membership extension, while I am trying now for a premium prize!
Dec-16-08  MostlyAverageJoe: BTW, seeing that the clue "Glance and hail" is a phrase from Goethe's "Dr. Faustus‎", I was busy clicking on the games found here:, and was going to look at the synonyms later, having earlier verified that it was no anagram...
Dec-16-08  chessmoron: <al wazir> How did you know that you are looking for synonyms?

  Domdaniel: Without trying to knock the various winners, I don't think anyone *knows* for sure. It's just that, with so many fast solvers, *somebody* is going to zero in on the correct idea quickly.

With 'Baasch' I had every letter but one, and was plodding through Raasch etc. But with Sunjaikin I got it in seconds, despite being almost derailed by Jaime Sunye Neto, who *almost* fitted the clues. While in the "c, for horses" clue - speed of light in furlongs - I actually started with the right approach, gave up, and went off on a deranged search for knight captures (horses) on the square c4 (c, for). I even found some games where all four knights were exchanged on c4. Not that it did any good...

If "indecision" ever comes up, I might look for the game Orr-Knott. Or not.

<MAJ> Congrats on that 5/28, btw. A bit better than 'mostly average' yes?
