* Bravest Rook in chess history - Steinitz's Immortal (Battle of Hastings)

* The Immortal Rook Lift by 11-year old Josh Waitzkin

Waitzkin just under top billing to Steinitz? Well, Josh's movie has done a lot to boost scholastic chess in the USA.

A is the Gambit, by Allgaier found out,
B is the Bishop, so warlike and stout;
C is our Chess – the glorious game,
D is Defeat, with its sorrow and shame;
E is the Evans, a famous attack,
F is the False-move we wish to take back;
G is a Gambit, full of startling delight,
H is the Houses of black and of white,
I is to Interpose in the midst of the fight;
J is J'adoube, which the careless must say,
K is the King, the soul of the play;
L is the López, the Gambit so old,
M is the Muzio, adventurous and bold;
N is the Notes, explaining our play,
O is the Opening, at the first of the fray;
P is a Pawn, marching boldly ahead,
Q is the Queen, mighty and dread;
R is the Rook, a warrior of weight,
S is a Stale, an unfortunate Mate;
T is a Tournay, where the weakest must yield,
U is to Unite our pawns in the field;
V is Variation, which black overlooks,
W is White, who moves first in the books;
X is Xantippe, the meanest of mates,
Y is to Yield, resigned to our fates;
Z is Zatrikiology, a game,
& an art of endurable fame.

Ha! Ha! Big bad puffi's best troller doesn't bother to read puffi's fallacious posts! That tells us how old and tiresome puffi's fabricated words have become.

puffi was just braggin' as usual on himself without analyzing a thing -- but giving himself FULL credit like he's Kasparov. puffi doesn't even bother to look at games or positions, he just reads the last member post and responds with the same old insulting posts he's been using for years. This wanka kisses his own buttocks with his own worn-out rolodex compliments!

I AM Fredthebear. I do more than think for myself -- I tell the truth on the bad apples! It's a fact that puffi is a lazy, unmotivated poster falsely believing that he's created some sort of cyberbully legacy for himself here by abusing other members each day, week, month, year, and decade.

Who's boring? pestiferous is boring! Everyone can see it for themselves.

The Dancing Bear
by James Russell Lowell

Far over Elf-land poets stretch their sway,
And win their dearest crowns beyond the goal
Of their own conscious purpose; they control
With gossamer threads wide-flown our fancy's play, And so our action. On my walk to-day,
A wallowing bear begged clumsily his toll,
When straight a vision rose of Atta Troll,
And scenes ideal witched mine eyes away.
'Merci, Mossieu!' the astonished bear-ward cried, Grateful for thrice his hope to me, the slave
Of partial memory, seeing at his side
A bear immortal. The glad dole I gave
Was none of mine; poor Heine o'er the wide
Atlantic welter stretched it from his grave.
