Voted Funniest Kibitzer 8 years in a row. Lost to the great <WannaBe>.

Inventor of the successful Secret Formula to win the pick 3 lottery. Will now work on the pick 4.

Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

"When You have a brilliant mind you have a special obligation" (from A Beautiful Mind)

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" (from A Beautiful Mind)

How the CIA operates (long read):

If you're giving away money e-mail me at goodchessactor(at)

Cuando siegues tu mies en tu campo, y olvides alguna gavilla en el campo, no volverás para recogerla; será para el extranjero, para el huérfano y para la viuda; para que te bendiga Jehová tu Dios en toda obra de tus manos.

When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

(Deut. 24:19)

technical draw: Sorry. I didn't know that WGM is a lower title than IM. So Cori has to get the IM title first but it appears she already has the qualifications.

Actually I don't know. I'm sure there's a gag in there somewhere so explain.

  technical draw: I don't believe the guy I'm playing on GameKnot. He's supposed to have a 2009 rating compared to my 1747 but he continues to play when we have just kings and opposite colored bishops but I have 4 extra pawns to his none! Why, oh why?

(That reminds me of the joke about the most misbehaved kid in class who also happens to have perfect attendance!)

"No matter how much you jump or dance the last few drops go down your pants."

  juan31: < TD> con los cientos de problemas que tenemos en México ( lo de cientos, no Es exageración), económicos, delincuencia, falta de medicamentos ( gratuitos para las personas con dificultades económicas, especialmente los niños , si los niños que sufren cancer, Así actua la actual " administración" y muchisimos más) Existe lo que en México se denomina " libertad de expresión", y creo en muchisimos paises existe, seguramente tu sabes mucho más.

  technical draw: In the first Mission Impossible movie Tom Cruise is lowered down into a computer room at CIA headquarters to copy some computer data. This idea was stolen from the 1988 tv series in the episode "The Lions". One member of the IMF has to go down a rope in a similar manner as Cruise to replace some lion figurines without triggering an alarm. It was deja vu all over again.

  WannaBe: And in between, Indiana Jones have to replace an idol with bag of sand. The volumn/size and density was completely wrong. And he have a Ph.D. Piled High and Deep, as we used to say. =)))

Say <TD>, you heard of this guy, Buddy Greene? No, not Graham Green that wrote novels.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe>. Thanks for that link. I remember seeing this harmonica player once but couldn't remember his name. The William Tell Overture was just fantastic. I can tell you the harmonica is a difficult instrument to master. Anyone can play easy tunes on it but to really master it involves real dedication.

  juan31: < TD> gracias por tu comentario del trailer, no contesto directamente, aparte que soy anti política, he leido que en tu forum cero política.

  chancho: Pasandola con mis hijos en California.

Vi el Golden Gate y fui a Alcatraz.

(Asegure no quedarme ahi antes de que el ultimo bote se fuera. )

Tambien vi las painted ladies.

Hoy a ver los museos y el martes que viene hacia Alemania, si Dios permite.

Note que esta lloviendo como loco en la isla de acuerdo a las noticias.


Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <chancho> Sí, llovió mucho Viernes y Sábado pero ya escampó. Lo mas seguro viste la celda del hombre de las aves de Alcatraz. Dicen que hay fantasmas en Alcatraz. Buen viaje a Alemania. No bebas mucha cerveza.

  technical draw: <McEnroe criticised his temperament, saying: "Kyrgios has to look in the mirror if he wants to become a top player and win Slams.">

You must be pretty bad if you get called out for temperament problems by John McEnroe.

(Kyrgios is an Australian tennis player)

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: McEnroe maintained his concentration after losing his temper, often played better. Kyrgios loses focus.

Kyrgios is immensely talented, but is erratic and makes many errors. He hasn't reached even the fourth round of a major tournament in five years. He is also often disrespectful toward opponents.

At this moment he just tanked a set versus Nakashima, just because he was down a break. Now going into the fifth set.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <At this moment he just tanked a set versus Nakashima, just because he was down a break. Now going into the fifth set.>

For those unfamiliar with the word "tanking" that means just giving up the set by not playing your fullest. Something akin to GM draws in the last round.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Kyrgios did come back and win the decisive set, so he's in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

  technical draw: Here's the description of a new Neflix movie:

<The action-thriller film revolves around CIA black ops mercenary (Ryan Gosling) known by the names of Court Gentry and Sierra Six, who has just accidentally uncovered some dark CIA secrets, therefore making him a target for international assassins.>

Wow, so original! Like I haven't seen the same movie dozens of times. I think I'll skip it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: All the synopses on Netflix and also other places sound exactly the same, divided into four or five groups.

  WannaBe: I knew of Jefferson and Adams, but did not know about Monroe... Thank you THG.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> Yes Marilyn Monroe was a beautiful actress. Too bad about her untimely death. I'm glad you learned something about her.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Actors you didn't know were short. Danny Trejo surprised me:

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <technical draw:

<WannaBe> Yes Marilyn Monroe was a beautiful actress. Too bad about her untimely death. I'm glad you learned something about her.>

I guess the others were Louise Jefferson, and Edie Adams?

  technical draw: <I guess the others were Louise Jefferson, and Edie Adams?>

I was thinking more about Denzel Washington and George Kennedy.
