Mar-28-16  posoo: lololol it is ONLY da shallo mind dat scorns dabate! morfushoon is a classic example of a totalitarian hatemonger who refuses to consider any positions but his own.

POSOO SAID IT.

Also - BLAK NITES MATTER.

Mar-28-16  Rookiepawn: <morfishine: <posoo> Ok, Mr. Shallow Mind, let me explain first, 'context', then second, 'perspective'....oh, never mind, its not worth the time or trouble for someone of your limited intelligence>

A statement followed by "end of the conversation" shows zero attention to any context or perspective.

Sand?

The position from this game is a quagmire for someone less adept at combinative play than yourself.

(Looks in mirror)

Jul-07-16  posoo: DIS IS DA most IMPORTUNT game in da WHOAL DATABASE
Jul-08-16  ambongtumbong: if that what will make you happy posoo.. then be it soo
Jul-11-16  posoo: No lives matter.
Jul-18-16  Harmonics4321: Chess is just a giant game of politics. Only the king's life matters is what we all subliminally learn from chess. As a beginner you would never sac a poor pawn or holy bishop but as you become enslaved to the system you throw them all away to kill the enemy king and even if the enemy could kill your king in a second their forces will be useless to carry out such an attack without its commander in Chief. @#$% the king and the pawns. Be grateful to that which allows all to be whether pawn or piece. You're worth worth saving.

  wordfunph: Was that a quote from Saving Private Ryan?
Aug-12-16  Conrad93: This is a very politically charged pun. Not a smart idea.
Sep-30-16  breakbad: That's how the world works now. You get blamed for the group you belong to. Even if you didn't do nothing.
Dec-17-16  ColeTrane: Kill all police...!
Feb-09-17  Rafaelvleite: This game was not played with the brain, bit with the soul!
Feb-09-17  posoo: da old posoo wishes to point out, in reponse to da AD HOMUMUM attaks on his intelagence, dat he is WEL-CREDENTALED having receeved a graduate dogree andan UNDORGRADUATE degree from an Ivey League Instatoot!

NOT DAT edocation is a sgn of intelagence but da MUNNOLITHIC MORFUDLIAN probably thinks dat it is.

<morfushoon is a classic example of a totalitarian hatemonger who refuses to consider any positions but his own.>>

A spellcheck program must have seized control of da old posoo's computer at this point.

<NOT DAT edocation is a sgn of intelagence but da MUNNOLITHIC MORFUDLIAN probably thinks dat it is.>

Of course it it's a sgn. Not proof, but a sgn.

Feb-09-17  posoo: GOOD POINT koppoush, but at BEST it is a WEEAK SGN
Feb-09-17  posoo: also i do NOT have a compoter, somtimes da nice lady at da librery helps me write da posts.

Feb-09-17  posoo: if FOKES have NOT YET cought on dat da old posoo is MORE THAN MEETSDAYE, i have LITUL hope for ur ABOLITIES to EDOCATE urselfs!
Apr-09-17  edubueno: 22 Tc1???? is a mistake.

Much better 22 Cb4! following 22...a5; 23 Cxb5! - axb4; 24 Cxd6!

Jun-15-17  nnnnnnnn: The game of the decade!!!

  ChessHigherCat: <nnnnnnnn: The game of the decade!!!>

That might be an exaggeration but it's a hell of a game and certainly not the <game of the decayed>, as Sir Ruthless seems to think:

<SirRuthless: Another glance at this game makes it even more apparent that Nakamura has for the moment lost the ability and confidence to calculate like he is capable of. No Sicilians, no KIDs, NO Englishes, no confidence, instead he has accepted a slow death... Why is he even still playing if he won't do what made him great? Just go home.>

Jun-15-17  SirRuthless: Yep, foolish past comments can certainly come back to bite one in the rear-end as demonstrated here. Thanks for the blast from the past.

  wordfunph: Play it dull and solid Naka. He is crazy for a win. He'll overstretch and beat himself.
Jun-15-17  gorgomir: Just look at that poor sample of Queenside cavalry. It starts as usual, on b1, jumps to c3 like every respectable horseman should, then leaps to b5 - only to see it's bloody head severed and thrown in the bed of it's owner by two gangsta pawns with Sicilian roots, arriving to a6 and b5. For the rest of the game, we witness a story of a typical White Knight whose damsels have never, ever rewarded him with sex; all while the actual steamy action is being administrated by the black bad boys from the Kingside.
