Chess rating: International Grand Mister

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. He is also a made man in the Gambino family. He is also the man who shot Liberty Valence.

"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):

"You have to be bad at something before you can be good at it."

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: I bought my first chess book in 1964. Of course it was by Fred Reinfeld. I think it was "Chess in a Nutshell". Then I got carried away and started buying chess books weekly. "The Complete book of Chess Openings", "Great Moments in Chess" and others. I enjoyed the books that ...

  technical draw: I have noticed that when it's raining there are a lot of people walking around with umbrellas. My brilliant scientific mind thus concludes that people walking around with umbrellas causes rainfall. Give me my Nobel.

The name of the judge: Judge John Judge

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I once worked in a place where four co-workers spoke French amongst themselves. The thing is that none of them were French! One was Canadian, one was Haitian, one was from Algeria, and one was from Morocco. I asked them if there was a difference in the French that each spoke and they said that there sure was.

I guess it's the same as the different Spanish accents from different Spanish speaking countries.

  technical draw: Did you know I have a law firm? It's TD, TD, and TD. I got a phone call the other day.

"May I speak to TD?" "Sorry, he's on vacation."
"So then may I speak to TD?" "Sorry, he's out to lunch." "So, then may I speak to TD?"

My coolest game: 41 Fahrenheit, 5 Celsius.

Sep-02-23  Chesschronicle22: A wise man when under preassure said:
There's a stone on my throat
There's a Brick on my chest
The stone turns into a mountain in my throat
The brick turns into a building on my chest.
Yet, do not quave, like Picasso's Guernica --butterflies with distorted wings at war. like Da Vinci's Mona Lisa -- a black mother hands on her lap with no mouth. I stay In peace.

  technical draw: I used to be a good violinist. I gave me first concert at 8. At 8:10 they told me to stop and never do that again. So I took the hint.

Times have changed, instead of old Jewish men as soloists there are a lot of Asian and European females in the top ranking in both piano and violin.>

Chloe Chua plays like an old Jewish guy!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman> Both Chloe Chua and Hilary Hahn are world class violinists but they are not haughty so they go to the comic/serious TwoSet Violin YouTube channel and entertain us with music and humor. Other violinists would not even consider going there.

  WannaBe: Them musicians just keep getting younger...

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Thanks <WannaBe> However I posted that same video here a few days ago and mentioned it was heard in the movie "Platoon". It's amazing how good youth orchestras are these days. (but I don't think anyone will break Mozart's record)

  technical draw: Beautiful song in French. Don't get too exited.

Unfortunately Jane Birkin died last month.

Heard of the YouTube channel "Great Art Explained"? Just discovered it and immediately subscribed to it.
