|Apr-19-06|| ||estebanchess2: he play bad vs miguel najdorf
|Apr-19-06|| ||WannaBe: How much wood can Wood push, if Wood pushed wood?|
|Apr-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: And if he hung a piece and lost a won game, would Wood chuck wood across the playing hall?|
|Apr-19-06|| ||tamar: And if he played Ivanchuk in a battle of blunders, the announcers would say...|
How much more wood would Wood chuck if Ivanchuk would chuck wood?
|Apr-19-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Much better. That game is referred to, of course, as Wood-Chucky.|
|Jun-23-07|| ||MondoBach: I can't believe I'm even joining in on this...however. If his parents had been accomodating enough to name him Charles we could have "How much Wood would Ivanchuk have chucked had Ivanchuk played Chuck Wood".|
|Aug-16-07|| ||wolfmaster: And,naturally, if Ivanchuk's parents had been cruel enough to name him Charles, then... How much Wood would Chucky chuck if Chucky would Chuck Wood!|
|Aug-16-07|| ||wolfmaster: Or, if Wood had been nauseous..(here we go again)How much Wood would Wood upchuck if Wood upchucked onto Chuck Ivanchuk?|

|Oct-10-10|| ||rapidcitychess: How far could Blackburne chuck, if Blackburne chucked Wood?|
|Sep-04-17|| ||wordfunph: extract from Chess Monthly 1952 January, by A. Buschke..|
< When Gabriel Wood mentioned he won the London Championship, he confessed to me that it was the first tournament in his life he had managed to sleep well. "How?" "Well," he said, "I've always cut down on beer after a game, but this time I drank all I wanted --- I slept like a top and woke up each morning fit as a fiddle." >
