Jun-07-14  Conrad93: IF I said that, why do you assume I mean the tournament?

I was obviously referring to a game.

Jun-07-14  N0B0DY: Of course, <N0B0DY> could have possibly predicted that flimsy argument.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad> You DID say that and the post you referred to was about the Maehrisch - Ostrau (1923) tournament. QED.

Alekhine vs Euwe, 1935

  perfidious: <GSM> Guess we can't say we weren't warned......not sure what to do in the presence of his staggering stupidity.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Conrad> and <AJ> having a "discussion" could be very entertaining.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: One could merely stand in awe as that pair duked it out in the fleshpots of Pensuckola.
Apr-06-15  apj: What happens after 23. f3? Attacking the queen, then knight can be captured and white would be a pawn up. Isn't the game still playable for white?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gilmoy: <apj: 23.f3> Nc4 with <mutual threat> to both Qs. Meanwhile Be3 is also hanging and doubled, so ducking the Q trade simply drops another piece. But after the Q trade 24.fxg4 Nxb2, now Rd1 and Be3 are both attacked, and after 25.Re1 <move one to save the other> Bxc3 causes more pain. And White can't even counterattack the Nb2 because the same Bxc3 defends it.

And White is already down the Ng5 he never got back.

Jun-17-15  Conrad93: At least I'm not Perfidious. He reeks of arrogance and narcissism.

I would rather be in the presence of a humble idiot than a boasting know-it-all.

Jun-17-15  john barleycorn: <Conrad93: At least I'm not Perfidious....>

Everybody knows. <perfidious> knows a thing or two about chess. In particular, the enpassant rule.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Yeah, but Ah caint count the number o' them there squares ta make a queen!
Jun-18-15  Abdel Irada: In <Conrad93> we find the worst of both worlds: a boasting idiot.

Wonder if he's ever heard that old saw, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Abdel Irada> Why read of suvh aphorisms when one can live them?
Jun-18-15  Conrad93: <Everybody knows. <perfidious> knows a thing or two about chess. In particular, the enpassant rule.>

I would smoke Perfidious in a game of chess. He pretends to know more than he actually does.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Ah'll tell yew what, Ah is a lahfe 1200 playah!

Is that better'n bein' <donkrad>?

Dec-20-15  scholes: giri seems to have ability to provoke even the most solid players to enter into tactical melee
Apr-29-17  ZackyMuhammad: What after Qg4? How Carlsen lose here?
Jun-08-17  DarthStapler: He's down a piece and he can't take the knight on b6 and defend his rook on d1 at the same time. He has to protect his rook, then the knight can escape.
Aug-18-18  snanda: f3 and bishop on e3 is weak ... Also N--c4 is threat attacking queen and bishop still under attack .
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: More than eight years on, Amish Girl awaits that elusive second victory lap after having got much mileage from this game, hardly one of the future champion's better efforts. For now, the young upstart is reduced to raging in passive-aggressive fashion like the impotent whelp he is.
Jun-29-19  Count Wedgemore: <"The chess world is a better place when Anish Giri is no longer able to win against Magnus Carlsen.">

--Count Wedgemore

Jan-06-20  SpiritedReposte: Looking back a few pages confirms my initial reaction to <18. exd5?> being a rough move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  JointheArmy: <Count Wedgemore> Your view on the chess world must have changed today.

  perfidious: As Amarillo Slim was wont to say:

<Sometimes the lambs slaughter the butcher>
