  MissScarlett: Didn't you tell me she was working for Twitch?
Jan-30-23  stone free or die: RIP <Sargon>, tragic. As he said, <"we will meet in glory">.

  Susan Freeman: <Missy> I might have told you that. I get them mixed up. But it is Switch she married. I wonder if they are in Israel.
Jan-31-23  stone free or die: Did anyone ever figure out what nationality <switch> was?

Aside - He was right up there with <mostlyaveragejoe> in solving the klu's.

Mensa-level.

I did appreciate how much fun <Daniel> and others had during that time of year. Poor <switch> tried to soldier on after <Dan>, but it was another example of <Dan>'s genius - allowing other's stars to shine!

Switch was/is from Finland.

  OhioChessFan: < Daniel once said that Switch was the most intelligent person he has ever known.>

No problem for me to believe that. The Holidays Present Hunt were often impossible for me and apparently easy for him.

Jan-31-23  stone free or die: Thanks <moron>, I do mistily seem to recall this now that you mention it.

* * * * *

Here's a song selection inspired by Suzz's (or Daniel's) * we love you just the same *.

Or maybe this other version?

  OhioChessFan: Reminds me of this game:

D Freeman vs M Legein, 2011

Premium Chessgames Member
  Susan Freeman: <OCF> right .well it was a games of pawns.
Feb-02-23  stone free or die: Suzz - don't forget that that game is also right here on <CG>

E J Diemer vs T Heiling, 1984

It also has a rare <Sneaky> rebuke:

<You win the wet-blanket award of the day. Lighten up man!!>

* * * * *

BTW- the game's pun was <The Pawnmower Man>, but given Diemer's proclivities, this alternative might be more apt:

<Pawnzkrieg>

  Willber G: I once started a game with 13 consecutive pawn moves. I won, as well, but I can't remember anything else about it. I think drink was involved.
Feb-02-23  parisattack: There are also the games of Mike Surtees and his ROT...
Feb-02-23  stone free or die: Interesting evolution of the discussion. The mention of Surtees is new to me.

(ROT = Revolutionary (or Revised) Opening Theory)

I'll try to follow-up <parisattack>'s post over here:

Mike J Surtees

  Teyss: Hello,
Strange message when trying to log in: "Your IP address (...) has attempted to login to Chessgames about 20 times in the last 15 minutes" whilst it was the first time. Is it an error on your server, which can happen, or did someone else actually try to log in with my IP?
I changed VPN and it then was ok but strange nonetheless.
Thank you.
