Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-05  Ultra: The man's name is Assmann.

Enough said.


Feb-12-05  PizzatheHut: I bet he was the butt of a few jokes.

P.S. Puns are fun.

Jul-17-08  fromoort: Especially puns on buns.

  perfidious: This player should have a go at it with Dimitri Bunzmann.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: To make fun of someone's name is just assinine.
Nov-13-12  TheFocus: I was going to make a joke, then decided to just but out.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Two more possibilities which complement this player's particular, ah, charms: Heimo Titz or Herbert Titz.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OBIT: Thies Heinemann (who actually played Bunzmann twice!) seems like a better fit. It's too bad a double round robin with Assmann, Bunzmann, and Heinemann was never arranged. They could have held it in Greece.

  perfidious: In the 1980s, there was a DJ on Kiss 108 in Boston called Lisa Lipps. Maybe she could keep this lot in line.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Let's not forget The Immoral Game A Kunte vs Oral, 1995.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <FSR> Pity.

Too many of the signs in that lot were, as you say, bust-a-gut material.

Jan-11-16  ndg2: I used to play with Thomas in the 90s in the same chess club (before my hiatus from tournement chess). He doesn't seem active anymore from 2010 on and I just can't get further information to what he's up now.

BTW: his name in German means actually "Ace Man". And he was one! He nearly had IM strength without doing much, his highest rating was ELO 2395.
