  Richard Taylor: I've never seen an advert for hot dogs but I believe they are an American disease.

Good game by Huebner.

He didn't have a lot of luck in his career.

Mar-16-13  morfishine: <Richard Taylor> Interesting comments: <I've never seen an advert for hot dogs but I believe they are an American disease> Disease is a good word unless one is consuming the highest quality hot dog...most are confabulations of leftover scraps

<He didn't have a lot of luck in his career> Accurate to say the least and hard to figure out; unless its simply a matter of nerves and not being able to maintain form under pressure; this is evidenced by his prowess as an analyst, something thats devoid of pressure

There's just nothing quite like a hot dog in the ballpark.

I remember the ad posted by <hellopolgar> firsthand from the days of my youth. Not my favorite brand--I much preferred Farmer John, but my favorites are, of course, Ball Park Franks (a brand name in its own right). Their slogan, "They plump when you cook 'em!" is an accurate one. Delicious!

  FSR: Nice game! Real hot dog chess by Ostermeyer.
Mar-16-13  Shams: Frankly speaking, this was a heck of a game. White must have relished playing his finishing blows against the enemy king.
Mar-16-13  vsiva1: 35. ...Qxg6? then what next either 2 side each queen. after white taking bishop. how white wins.
Mar-16-13  goodevans: <vsiva1> See <hellopolgar>'s second kibitz, right at the top.

  FSR: White mustered his forces for attack. Black surrendered the exchange, and frankly could never catch up after that. White played like a hot dog, relishing every move. Black, in a pickle, resigned. White exulted, "I am an Ostermeyer winner!"
Mar-16-13  morfishine: <FSR> Yes, Pickle! The missing condiment. One things for sure, this wasn't a dill game at all
Mar-16-13  morfishine: Black wasn't even in the ballpark with this defense
Mar-16-13  JohnBoy: Great pun!

  kevin86: All of the action seemed to take place on the kingside. Black defense was feeble...at best.
Mar-16-13  bengalcat47: I remember the ads for Oscar Mayer wieners, although my favorite brand of hot dogs is Ball Park Franks!

  PawnSac: <morfishine: Black wasn't even in the ballpark with this defense>

Speaking frankly, he got himself in a pickle (boy was it a dilly) and Peter toasted his buns.

Mar-16-13  Kimberlie: Sorry, I must be the only one today missing this!
Just how is this a win for white?
35... Qxg6 36 f8=Q followed by Qxh5
leaving Black a Bishop up.
what am I missing?
Mar-16-13  Pballa: Great tactical display from white, love the under-promotion finish!

As noted above by <hellopolgar> and referenced by some others since, the trick is that White does NOT play 36.f8=Q? but underpromotes for the win: 36.f8=N+!

Mar-16-13  morfishine: <Kimberlie> On your query sir: <Sorry, I must be the only one today missing this! Just how is this a win for white? 35... Qxg6 36 f8=Q followed by Qxh5 leaving Black a Bishop up. what am I missing?> Not 36.f8=Q; instead White deep-fries Black with <36.f8=N+>

Stupendous finish...I didn't see it :)

  Richard Taylor: I studied the advert. Good. We have such "iconic" ones in NZ. There is an artist here (Dick Frizell) who uses them very well. One was a food store group called Four Square. There have been adverts for cheese and on radio in the 50s (before TV in about 1960) a really catchy one about where to get dentures! Then there was the "Pride of the South" about (forget the brand!) a beer more common in the South Island. Hot dogs I associate with the Easter show, when I would have one and also an apple in toffee.

But hot dogs are around here. Mixture of British and US culture here. Pretzels. [They are more common here now and also St Valentines day and Halloween - US culture or: "Language it's a virus..." (Laurie Anderson quoting William Burroughs I think) I made a point of eating one in NY (1993) not far from the Brooklyn Bridge (just there I saw squirrels for the first time) and I also got hot dog just off Central Park.

But I think in the "West" we all eat too much (especially high calorie foods). I (and my son) used methods by my daughter (she is doing a PhD in Health Psychology) to lose weight. The basic method is to eat less! But to measure one's weight and so on...eat slowly.

A hot dog now and then is o.k. (you can just about eat anything but the idea is to eat say less red meat and more by % of salads etc) but I notice that even Kentucky Fried are now offering better stuff and Wendy Burgers has a calorie chart...

Calories i.e. Cals (kilocalories actually but a useful measurement) a function of kilojoules (divide by 4.2).

But in NY there was a lot of eating places I liked the Sbarro places - where I was always corrected when I said "tomatoes"! I drank (alcohol) then so I was pleased to be able tot get booze at McDonalds and other places...

  Richard Taylor: Yes Huebner even played in NZ (Wellington) and I think he pulled out of the tournament - Spassky also played I think.

I think he suffers from depression or confidence - poor fellow.

Well, we all have that from time to time.

Mar-16-13  Kimberlie: <Infohunter As noted above by <hellopolgar> and referenced by some others since, the trick is that White does NOT play 36.f8=Q? but underpromotes for the win: 36.f8=N+! Thank you so much for that.
