Oct-18-04  gondooley: I would love more information on this player. According to the following site, his name is actually Edward, and my Fritz database calls him Edward Bradley Adams. Is taking the EZ way out?

  BlueMooner: I checked the ending of this game as I was working/playing through Yasser Seirawan's excellent 'Winning Chess Tactics' and this game was cited as a "..beautiful example of an overworked piece (Black's Queen) & the art of deflection..". And he's right! Good fun with Qc7!! being a knockout blow of real quality. Although I am unsure as to where the "Take my wife. Please!" title in stems from. Also when it says 'probably analysis' does it then mean that this weas a practice game to demonstrate tactical flair & combinations? Seems unlikely.
Jul-14-07  Karpova: <“My chess career”, Mr Adams modestly wrote us many moons ago, “consists principally of my interest in Carlos. I commenced to study the game about ten years ago. I had a hard time of it, as I had to batter my way along and get whatever pointers I could pick up by watching the others play, and finally I learned the code and played over the games in the books. It was over two months before I was able to win a game from the poorest player I could find at the club (and the only one who would play with me), and it was only by “bucking the line” and being “thrown for many losses” and taking my medicine like a man that I finally learned to play a little.>

Aug-31-09  wrap99: <bluemooner> The comic Rodney Dangerfield used that line, with proper pauses to great effect. The repeated attempts to get black to take the queen I am pretty sure inspired the title.
