  Phony Benoni: OK, I assume that "Green Eggs" refers to the Caro-Kann.

I do not like the Caro-Kann,
I do not like it, not a fan.
I would not play it when online,
I would not play it with Fred Rhine.
I would not play it on the loose,
I would not play it with Doc Seuss.
I would not make a silly pun,
I would not play it, anyone!
I do not like the Caro-Kann:
Why can't we have a FIDE ban?

Feb-26-13  Abdel Irada: Now, now, <Phony Benoni>.

What's wrong with the Caro Mortuus?

Feb-26-13  Abdel Irada: And, having looked over the game, I can now say that that Caro is very mortuus.
Feb-26-13  morfishine: Not to be confused with the author of children's books, Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel aka 'Dr. Suess', who no doubt, never achieved an Fide rating of 2300

The last word: I hope I never see a green egg

Feb-26-13  Alphastar: 10. ...dxc3 is the move preferred by theory
Feb-26-13  David2009: <Phony Benoni: I do not like the Caro-Kann, I do not like it, not a fan...> Excellent! :)

What is the difference between Baldrick and

  FSR: I have eaten green eggs and ham at the Green Eggs and Ham Cafe and Universal Studios Orlando. Good stuff. I'd eat it again.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: I prefer pushing the c-pawn two squares, but I like the Caro-Kann. I've only played it a handful of times, against strong opposition, but never lost. Trying to beat it, OTOH, is not a pleasant thing.

And yes, <piltdown man>, the author's name (or pseudonym, to be precise), is Dr. Seuss, not Suess like this fellow.

You and William Steinitz.

Feb-26-13  morfishine: <nottogoodabeginner> Is the shell green or are the eggs actually green?
Feb-26-13  Abdel Irada: I hate to think of what would have to go into eggs and ham to make them bright green. Perhaps a relatively benign vegetable color of some kind could be found, but I can't imagine that it wouldn't alter the taste.

  Castleinthesky: Kudos to <Phony Benoni> and, unfortunately, Dr. Seuss has just lost his queen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: This game is what happens when you put (Heinz) Catsup on Green Eggs and Ham.

Is this Dr. Seuss FOR REAL?

Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Is there a faster win after 35...♔g8 36 ♖g1+ ♔c8 37 ♕d6+ ♕d7 38 ♖g8+ wins the queen?

  Sneaky: <Phony Benoni>

But would you play it in a house?
Would you play it against a mouse?
Would you play it in a box?
Would you play it against a fox?

Would you, could you, in a fix?
Play it! Play it! Pawn c6!

What is the difference between Baldrick and Is it Baldrick has a cunning plan and Chessgames has a punning clan .
