Feb-08-12  TheBish: V Laznicka vs Kulaots, 2012

White to play (26.?) "Medium/Easy"

White wins with a nice combo: 26. Qxc8+! Bxc8 27. Rxc8+ Bf8 28. Rxf8+! Qxf8

This last sacrifice had to be seen at the beginning. Now White wins Black's queen, leaving him a piece up. If instead Black plays 28...Kg7, White wins easily with 29. Re8 followed by 30. Bxe5(+) followed by advancing and queening the d-pawn.

29. Bxe5+ Kg8 30. d6+ Qf7 31. Bxf7+ Kxf7

Black now needs to resign, if he hasn't already! Very nice combination; all of White's pieces are perfectly positioned to enable it to work.

Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: RE: txt message (and troll's comments)

Of course - I could have posted the player's name, number, whole message, etc. But:

A.) Why?
B.) I am sure if I did that, it would be a breach of confidence and this person might not ever speak to me again.

I get MANY e-mails ... and I have posted literally DOZENS of these on my website. I NEVER give out private info, unless I see a good reason AND I have permission in advance.

Of course, if it were up to me, all the trolls would be permanently banished from this site, NONE of them add ANY value to this site at all! Why the "powers that be" put up with their nonsense, is beyond me. I personally, would welcome a change to an "paid-members-only" site, if that would put an end to this foolishness.

Feb-09-12  Colonel Mortimer: Baloney - normal people respond to text via a text, to email via an email.

What kind of person responds to these via a post here? Someone who bizarrely wants to 'prove' that he gets lots of emails and texts.

Stop telling Goldsbies <AJ>. <Strange little man> indeed, with the emphasis on 'little'.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: <Colonel Mortimer: ... with the emphasis on 'little'.>

Which applies to <both> sides of this silly debate. It has long since stopped being remotely interesting to anyone.

Please stop.

Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: You guys really are as stupid as heck. Who says I don't respond to it.

Actually, i hate texting and normally reply "e-mail."

<Princess Mortimer> I am sure your mother dropped you on your head as a child. She did it often, and it was quite deliberate. However, seeing how you are, its also perfectly reasonable; one only wonders why she did not go further.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: <LIFE Master AJ>

Please stop.

Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: BTW, some phones have a little pop-out keyboard for texting, others have a large, "touch-screen" surface.

Mine has neither, which explains why I don't care for texting much.

However, I DO use the technology. I subscribe to MANY sports sites (its free), which means I get text messages on chess, scores of NFL football games, etc. I also subscibe to the CNN site, which means I get dozens of text messages daily about the news.

Do you assume just because I am from Pensacola, FL; that I am incapable of using technology? That's both assine and completely ridiculous.

Your line of reasoning here is truly baffling. I have a service whereby I get UNLIMITED calls (stateside) AND text ... why wouldn't I take advantage of that?

Morons ...

Whatsa matter? Your Daddy didn't pay enough attention to you as a child? Or is there a darker force at work here?

Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: <Once> Go away. I think I have already made it quite clear that I don't care for your intrusions ... I often think that your interference only makes things worse.
Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: When they apponint you as an admin, then I will listen. And you once GUARANTEED that if I stopped, they would.

That turned out to be pure BS and a complete fantasy. I took about 3 months where I responded to almost nothing but chess. It seemed to make some of these twisted perverts bolder ... and not the other way around.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: <LIFE Master AJ: Go away.>

No. This is a public place. I have as much right as anyone else to be here and to express my opinions.

If anything, I am the one following posting guideline #3 - no personal attacks against other users.

Notice the use of the word "please".

Calm, calm, calm.

Feb-09-12  LIFE Master AJ: You MIGHT have an affect on me ... sometimes, I can be reasonable. (In fact, I know of NO instance lately ... where I initiated anything but a discussion on chess matters. USUALLY - when I go off - I am responding to an attack.)

However, the trolls no know boundaries nor do they honor any of the normal rules or conventions ...

Bottom line? You are wasting your time.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: <sometimes, I can be reasonable>

That would be a first time.

<However, the trolls no know boundaries nor do they honor any of the normal rules or conventions>

Neither do you. Therein lies the main problem. You think you can insult others, but others are not allowed to insult you.

Look in the mirror <Ass Jerk>. You are a hypocrite.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: <LIFE Master AJ> < BTW, some phones have a little pop-out keyboard for texting, others have a large, "touch-screen" surface.

Mine has neither, which explains why I don't care for texting much.>

<AJ>, you do know that you can text with the number buttons on your phone, don't you? That is why they have letters on them. Maybe you have a rotary cell phone?

You have got to be the biggest moron on the site. Why don't you leave?

Feb-09-12  Nemesistic: <LIFE Master AJ> <R.E. The texts you goldsbied about>

You just said you have FREE texts and calls, then asked "Why wouldn't i take advantage of that??"


Why didn't you take advantage by replying BY TEXT??

Did the man that originally text you say "Please answer my question on a chess website"???

You wont reply to this because you've been caught out telling Goldsbies... Again!!

And you're the problem on this site Gizmo, the way you just spoke to <Once> is unforgivable, given that he's tried to help you in the past..

Feb-09-12  psmith: <EVERYONE> What <Once> said. Please stop cluttering up this wonderful site with your c**p. Take it outside, boys.
Feb-09-12  AlphaMale: When the Alphamale's away, the mice will play.
Feb-09-12  Nemesistic: AJ suffers from 'Pseudologia fantastica'..

In English.. He's a crazy, fantasist liar.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Wow, I just received an e-mail from <AJ> wanting to know if he could be the president of my fan club.

By the standards initiated by <AJ>, I have to answer his e-mails here.

My reply to <AJ>: Not no, but HELL no.

Feb-09-12  Colonel Mortimer: I received an email from <AJ> in which he said


One question: Does your mother have any children that she is actually proud of?"

I'll respond here: At least I have a mother.

Feb-09-12  Nemesistic: Thank god that text messaging, emailing Goon doesn't have my email address, he'd drive me to even his level of insanity with his constant Goldsbies..
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: First name Gizmo. Last name Goober.
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: The following, from <AJ>'s profile, always gives me the giggles.

<If you have any questions, be sure to e-mail me. ("NO-SPAMlifemasteraj(at)" Don't use the parenthesis or the quotation marks - be sure to remove the "NO-SPAM" from the front of the e-mail.)>

Why not just put: If you have any questions, be sure to e-mail me at:

Is that so incredibly difficult to do? Really, Gizmo, are you that much of a moron? Some people here at <CG> actually know about e-mail.

Feb-09-12  Colonel Mortimer: <LMAJ> <During big events ... like the Anand-Topalov match ... I was literally getting 200-300 emails in a single day>
