Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-06  dbquintillion: This game was played by Patrice Lumumba's nephew, Cletis. Sadly, Cletis was not as accomplished at chess as his esteemed uncle was at politics, as you can see.
Feb-05-06  acirce: It was actually Lumumba, the hero of Congolese independence, who was murdered and the truly ruthless dictator Mobutu eventually installed instead. Maybe you have the story mixed up.
Feb-05-06  Jim Bartle: Thanks for the correction. I killed the earlier message, since it was plain wrong.
Feb-06-06  dbquintillion: the problem with killing messages is that it now looks like acirce is correcting me, when i did not say anything inaccurate about lumumba. except perhaps the part about his nephew.
Feb-06-06  iamverywellatchess: I enjoy this site very much so, thank you for asking!
Feb-06-06  Jim Bartle: Sorry, I made a joke referring to Lumumba's supposed tendency to kill or torture opponents. I killed it when acirce pointed out that Lumumba was one of the good guys.
Feb-07-06  dbquintillion: too bad, it was probably a good mobotu joke. i'll try to set up a punchline for you somewhere else.
Feb-07-06  Jim Bartle: Actually it was pretty dumb and obvious, but here's a new try. It goes after the first post:

(Minchev has defeated Cletis Mobutu at chess.)

Unlike many of the elder Mobutu's opponent, at least Minchev got away with his life and liberty.

Feb-08-06  dbquintillion: not bad jim, not bad.

i'm pretty excited changed this to cletis lumumba. i don't expect it to stay, but i'm going to revel in it for the time being.

Feb-18-06  Saruman: If 10.-gxf6 11.Bd3 f5(11.-Qxc3??+ 12.Kd1! f5 13.Ng5 ) 12.Kd2 Nxe5 13.Ng5 Kg7(13.-Re8 14.Qxh7+ Kf8 15.f4 f6 , eg. 15.Qh6+ Ke7 16.fxe5 fxg5?? 17.Qf6#) 14.Qxh7+ Kf6 15.f4 Nxd3 16.cxd3 , with ideas like Qh4.
Feb-18-06  Averageguy: What about 14.Nxg5 ?
Feb-18-06  Saruman: <Averageguy> 14.Nxg5 is also winning, because Qd4+ can be met by Bd3.
Jan-11-07  dbquintillion: Ah, sweet nostalgia. I long for the days when believed my post and changed this page to say Cletis Lumumba instead of just C Lumumba.
