Oct-17-05  hayton3: Bill tried to plant Farmer in the ground but ended up having his queen walled in.

  wwall: Check this out. There's not a grain of truth that this was a planted game. Another off-the-wall story about a Farmer who had a Bill to pay (or play). I wanted to play the Corn Stalk Opening, but my opponent, who was seeded in this tournament, wanted to play the Stonewall. He gave me room to grow and I mowed him down with my Sicilian. The game ended at knight.

  Sneaky: Black was later accused of consulting his laptop PC in the rest room for chess advice during a tournament. This case became known as "Farmer and the Dell."
Oct-19-05  hayton3: Time for some crop rotation - the humus been robbed of all its vitality.
Oct-19-05  tacticalmonster: How about: The one who sowed his own seed?
