Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-23-09  Wayne Proudlove: I had to look this attack up because I used to live in downtown Toronto and I played chess on a sidestreet off Yonge Street and there was a black guy who mumbled about the Sicilian Canal Attack, I had no idea what he was talking about but I listened for a long time anyways, it was amusing. I remember that night some guy punched me, I can't rememember why. It's fun to reminisce about those years, the city's a jungle and I was definitely Tarzan. Chess was just one of many ways to pass the time. I think of all the crazy things I did, and it doesn't matter who you are or what you do, you can be a businessman, a politician, an artist at a studio, homeless, a member of a band, a stripper, a bartender, nightclubbers, it makes no difference because no one has lived and survived the streets like I did. I don't even brag about it, it's just fact.

  moronovich: <Wayne Proudlove> good you made it !

A very original chessthinker is Rolf Martens from Sweden.. if you are interested.

Oct-24-09  Wayne Proudlove: Oh, thanks for that. I will keep that in mind, although at the moment I'm undertaking a study of the coded chess messages that are found in some of Marcel Duchamp's artworks.

  Penguincw: These knight endings can be tricky.


♔♘♙♙♙♙ vs. ♔♘♙♙♙

The superior side bags the full point 68.6% of the time, which is most of the time.

The peace sign shows up 27% of the time.

The remaining 4.4% of the time is when the inferior side bags the full point.
