  Fusilli: When I saw 28.Bg4 I kept thinking... what is that for? Funny, the bishop ends up being in the right place for the final charge. I guess Stein played it conceptually, or intuitively. What a genius.

  Fusilli: Mid-week puzzle: White 50th move. (Assuming, of course, that the puzzle involves solving the whole sequence and not just guessing the first move, as many on this website seem to think, and brag about)

  Fusilli: <ughaibu: How can one brag on the internet? It's like saying 'my parents are Goldsby and Trice'.> LOL. I've seen, several times, people posting "Easy, I saw it in five seconds", to the Saturday or Sunday puzzle. It's impossible to see in seconds the whole solution to a Saturday or Sunday puzzle, unless you think that all you had to do was guess the first move. Many look for the most obvious sacrifice, guess that is the right move, and then claim to have gotten the puzzle right, in record time, even if they didn't even consider possible responses.

  LIFE Master AJ: <ugh> I was raised that it was nice to talk poorly about anyone's parents. I guess your family did not bother to teach you anything worthwhile?
Feb-17-09  blacksburg: <I was raised that it was nice to talk poorly about anyone's parents.>

that's not a very nice way to be raised :(

Feb-17-09  Jim Bartle: My parents taught me that if you make strong statements ("Clinton should be in jail," to pick a random example), you should back up your argument, and not delete the comments of anybody who asks you to back up your opinions.

I guess your parents thought differently, AJ.

Feb-17-09  swarmoflocusts: <It's impossible to see in seconds the whole solution to a Saturday or Sunday puzzle, unless you think that all you had to do was guess the first move.>

I would debate the correctness of this statement. The accuracy and speed of calculation vary hugely from person to person. There are absolutely people who could calculate the solutions to these puzzles in seconds (just probably not very many on this site -- no offense intended to any).

  LIFE Master AJ: CORRECTION! haha, stupid me

My above post should read: " I was raised that it was NOT nice to talk poorly about anyone's parents."

Premium Chessgames Member
  LIFE Master AJ: <Bartle> You are not on my ignore list, but I do try to ignore you ... completely. Mostly - you have nothing interesting to say, and you only seem to be interested in starting another flame-war. And most/all of what you want to talk about has absolutely nothing to do with chess.

If you would like a full discussion, feel free to e-mail me, my (internet) address is given in the intro to my handle.

Feb-18-09  Jim Bartle: AJ, it was you who stated your political opinions, not me. I don't see why you believe your player page is simply a forum for your personal opinions, without anyone allowed to question them.

Again, you stated Bill Clinton should be in jail. Why? What crime did he commit which typically lands the offender in jail. (Not should have been impeached, should be in jail.)

Feb-18-09  Jim Bartle: Why not delete the political statements on your page if you're not going to permit anyone to question them? Then I'd respect you a little.

(My apologies to others for arguing on the page of this game, but any posts on AJ's page are quickly deleted.)

Premium Chessgames Member
  LIFE Master AJ: Its clear to me that all you want is to argue, and that you want to do it on these web pages.

Feel free to e-mail me anytime ...

Well... I suppose a few geniuses in the world could figure out the right solution to a Saturday or Sunday puzzle in seconds, but even the actual players who made the moves usually devoted several minutes to analyze them, even Kasparov. But we agree that nobody on this site falls into that category anyway. My comment only meant to poke fun at those who post "I solved it in seconds" on the page of a Saturday or Sunday puzzle. In my view, that is short for "I guessed the first move right in seconds and didn't even try to analzye the follow-up". Often, the first move is obvious and the follow-up is what really matters. And often, the use of the "guess" verb is entirely appropriate.

Aug-17-09  ughaibu: It's fun that AJ thinks that suggesting that he is someone's parent is talking poorly of that person's parents.

  woldsmandriffield: A strange game. 32 Rxc1 Bxc1 33 Qa6 wins an important pawn since if 33..Qa8 34 Qa3! threatening Qe7. At the end, 43..h6 created mortal weaknesses in Black‚Äôs position.
