Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.


Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!



This is the forum.
The Cirque,
On an average day, people go about their business.

When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

Dum De Dum
Dum De Dum De Dum

We were working out of Tactics and Swindles. My partner's name is Jessie. My name's Boomie.

Given that a thought dies shortly after birth, the writer is a mortician whose job is to make it smile.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

Professor, don't get on that ship! That book, To Serve Man, it's a chess book!

Have pawn. Will travel.

The Cirque - Your best choice for a second location.

<If Gilbert and Sullivan Played Chess>

Though it may seem quite incongruous
And it makes so little sense to us,
She is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Though she may seem a bit mannish,
She would never play the Spanish.
'Cause she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

Neither Russian, French nor Catalan
'Cause she always wants to get her man.
So she is an English fan.
Yes she is an English fan.

<With apologies to George M. Cohan>

D-z-indzi-chashvili spells Zindchinhashvalley.

Proud of all the Cossack blood that's in me

Praise the man who says my name correctly

D-z-indzi-chashvili you see

It's a shame that my name has never been pronounced quite like

Ginchinsmokedhashverily, that's me!

<CG Haiku>

She had me at "Heh".
Much jibber jabber ensued.
It's all about chess.

Boomie: I think a lot of the difficulty with Olga can be attributed to the attempt to make "one size fits all". To make a board that works for desktops and phones is probably impossible. There should be two types of Olga which people can select from the drop down list. I repeat my request to
   Oct-16-20 Loewenthal vs Morphy, 1859
Boomie: According to the CG database, 3...a6 first appeared in 1845 in E Rousseau vs C Stanley, 1845 . Stanley was from England but lived in the US. According to his bio here "Rousseau’s second was Eugene Morphy, Paul's uncle. Paul Morphy attended the match at the age of 8 and became ...

Boomie: <SChesshevsky: Especially as the position looks fairly similar to what could be seen in a standard classical Modern Benoni.> To play a Benoni without the dark square bishop is crazy. Perhaps that's why nobody else has played 6...c5. Stockfish 10 gives white about a pawn ...
   Aug-26-20 Anderssen vs Morphy, 1858
Boomie: <Neither would Anderssen have offered up an excuse; he was the soul of chivalry.> When asked after this match why he didn't unleash one of his brilliancies, Anderssen said "Mr. Morphy didn't let me." He felt that no matter how convoluted an attack, Morphy would see it coming. ...
   Aug-22-20 Ty Cobb (replies)
Boomie: Notice the use of self deprecating humor. This is contrary to the popular image of Ty Cobb as a self absorbed monster. The rather masterly telling of the story reveals a bright intellect. The popular image of Cobb should be reassessed.
