|Jun-18-12|| ||sevenseaman: Tal's chess never stops amazing me. It is so much effort just following how his mind works.|
Here it looks as though an ace footballer is kicking ball with a kid; simply toying as though sheer delight were the sole objective.
|Jun-18-12|| ||sevenseaman: <thegoodanarchist> and others. Good play of words. |
I was trying to restrain myself but <abstemious> came to mind. I dunno if <abstemiously > is an approved adjective/adverb.
At college this was a common story in the English literature circles. Some wag went up to Thomas Hardy and said English was a funny language. Sugar was the only word in the language written 'sugar' but pronounced 'shugar'.
Wondered back Hardy, "The only word? Are you sure?"
|Jun-18-12|| ||Tridel: I didn't Know that you can rename a game that has a pun. This one used to be called "Simultaneity Paradox" if I recall correctly because they both offered their queen.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||PaulLovric: <LoveThatJoker: Fantastic game by one of the greatest geniuses in the history of Chess, WC Tal!!
LTJ> where is the like button|
|Jun-18-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <PaulLovric> Thank you - and what you said is seriously true! Well said!|
|Jun-18-12|| ||solskytz: Really amazing pun!! Especially as I just played this piece in concert three short days ago. Coincidences?|
Here's a performance of it recorded in 2011 (to make the pun more real to some of you guys out there...)
this link is for the first part - links will appear on the right for the continuation (a relic of the times when I could only upload up to 15 mins worth of music to YouTube at one go)
|Jun-18-12|| ||superstoned: The position after 18...Nxc2 looks like one of the harder tasks from Ct-Art.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||bvwp: Five vowels in order. Also abstemious.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||Garech: Superb!
|Jun-18-12|| ||Everett: Long live Musorgsky!|
|Jun-18-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Tridel: I didn't Know that you can rename a game that has a pun. This one used to be called "Simultaneity Paradox" if I recall correctly because they both offered their queen.> |
Not to mention that the pun has also been used before: Capablanca vs J Baca Arus, 1912
|Jun-18-12|| ||Phony Benoni: And if you're really into weird words, try http://jeff560.tripod.com/words.html. Section 6 covers words with five/six vowels in order, among other things.|
I might point out that the word <supercAlifragilisticExpIalidOcioUs> has all five vowels in order, since nobody specified there couldn't be another vowel or two interspersed. But that would be facetious.
|Jun-18-12|| ||Jim Bartle: "Long live Musorgsky!"
Miller's position did come to look like a Hut on Fowl's Legs.
|Jun-18-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Not bad for a simul, but nothing special as a Tal game. The queen sac wasn't that hard to see and was only queen for rook.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||WhiteRook48: For a regular game, absolute genius. For a Tal game, completely normal.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||Mladja: Beautiful game.Mikhail Tal achieved The highest level of this game.|
|Jun-18-12|| ||ajile: I actually played this music back when I was a string bass player in college. Russian piece by Mussorgsky.|
|Jun-19-12|| ||kevin86: A wild game by Tal-even forcing his opponent to give up his queen!|
|Jun-27-12|| ||DarthStapler: Amazing|
|Jun-27-12|| ||Lil Swine: i was thinking of " A Tal glass of Miller"|
|Jun-27-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Miller Lite.|
|Aug-15-12|| ||Manoloo: It wasn't Miller Time!!|
|Nov-10-12|| ||ajax333221: he missed Mate in 3 at the end :C|
|Nov-24-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <sevenseaman: I dunno if <abstemiously > is an approved adjective/adverb.>|
"I approve this adverb."
