  whiteshark: The Berlin Wall stands for the total cluelessness we had at the time.

If *you* have a life, then why are you here?

Feb-14-10  Slurpeeman: Nice comeback. I don't post on every single game with stupid comments

I am here because I like chess.On occasion

Bye, troll.

Feb-14-10  Jim Bartle: I don't see any "stupid comments" from notyetagm. Only an interesting point.

And check out the referenced Game Collection for other examples of this tactical theme.

<23.Bxc5! A shock – 23...Bxc5 or 23...bxc5 allows 24.Nxg6+ and 25.Nxh8.>

Feb-16-10  chillowack: <Jim Bartle: I don't see any "stupid comments" from notyetagm. Only an interesting point.>

Slurpeeman may have been referring to notyetagm's <INCREDIBLY ANNOYING> habit of putting <BRACKETS> around <WORDS IN ALL CAPS>.

Or maybe the fact that notyetagm sometimes floods a thread with as many as ten messages--almost consecutively--when he fancies a game (compared to one or two comments from others).

Or maybe something else, I don't know. My personal quibble with notyetagm here is that he calls Aronian a "tactical genius." Nothing against Aronian, he's a very gifted player, but when I think "tactical geniuses," he's the last player who comes to mind.

Tal, Nezhmetdinov, Kasparov, Shirov, Polgar, Morozevich...these are the tactical geniuses. Aronian is like Kramnik: a super-strong (and often rather dull) positional master.

Feb-17-10  Poisonpawns: 23.Be3xc5 is not worth a single exclaim. Anyone over 1700 should see the move quickly. If not see Morphy.
