Jun-25-07  Whitehat1963: It's over, Ripley. Believe or not.
Oct-10-07  patzerboy: Oh, god. As I was following the moves, after each move by White I was thinking, "That looks OK" right up to the END!

I would have made the same stupid blunder.

  Domdaniel: Ouch, indeed. I've played this kind of Iljin-Zhenevsky Dutch countless times, often with a Qg6 and a knight exchange on e4. But I've never seen this idea before.

  Domdaniel: By Patricia Hai Smith, nicht wahr? The ubiquity of The Shark.

Hunter Thompson's 'Great Shark Hunt' -- about the 'First Criminal', Richard Nixon -- is a classic.

I like his quote <too weird to live and too rare to die>.

I guess you like his gonzo writing style. What gives me just that idea? :D

  Domdaniel: <whiteshark> I *do* like Gonzo. It shows, doesn't it?

The trouble is, the newspaper editor I do most of my paid work for *hates* gonzo, and all who sail in it. He says it's childish and self-indulgent - and that's the writing style alone, without even mentioning drink or drugs.

So the 'I' word is totally banned, along with opinions and first-person journalism. I argue that perhaps an 'art critic' might be allowed an opinion, or an interviewer might allude to their own role in the conversation ... but I lose those arguments.

And let off steam by going gonzo in CG.

While this certainly was not White's finest hour, he managed to play in at least two British championships, so I rather believe he was at least competent.
