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.

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.

<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.

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!

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

Boomie: 24...gxh6 is also gruesome for black. White plays Rfc1 restricting the Na4. Then the black rook is pushed around starting with Nf3 and forced to e4 eventually. Notice that there is a potential fork of the rooks with the bishop. Amusing.

Boomie: I'm sure this has been mentioned but anything worth doing is worth over doing. The World Junior's ended a month ago. We should have followed it to begin with but at least it should go into the database, eh?

Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: *The Mariano Sana Trench* More than 7 miles deep!> That's deeper than Sean Penn but not as deep as Bono.

Boomie: <Fusilli> Congratulations on your fine GOTD. Back in the day, I played the CK and hated the Panov-Botvinnik attack. After Qb3: [DIAGRAM] Sans silly cone monster, it appears to me that black's road to equality should be action against the isolani on d4. That fine outpost on ...

Boomie: <al wazir: But how does a scheduling a White House visit for a foreign dignitary, or not scheduling it, affect our national interests?> Such a meeting would strengthen Zelensky's position in both his fight against the Russians and against corruption. The Russians are trying to ...

Boomie: <Cheapo by the Dozen: The engine seems a bit confused...> When posting engine evals it is important to name the engine used and the depth of the search. To do a more thorough analysis, the line should be played out a few moves with the engine set to "Infinite Analysis". This ...

Boomie: Should be a draw. Fine tourney for the young Spaniard.

Boomie: -> Everybody Wang Hao tonight. Everybody Wang Hao tonight. They made it to time control with even chances.
   Oct-07-19 Larsen vs Geller, 1960
Boomie: White's position on the queenside after 10. b3: [DIAGRAM] This is identical to a Benoni structure. The general rule for the opponent is to resist the b-pawn push. Once white gets in b4, the game is half over. Notice later white plays e3 which is also a Benoni move.
