Jan-02-07  JYMMI: <WannaBe> Yeah, I know, but JYMMI is not my real name, it's my school nickname. A reference to Jimmy Neutron (yes, the cartoon character) but I changed the position of the letters because I think it's better this way.
Jan-03-07  refutor: didn't fischer play the same line against nigel short on ICC ;)
Jan-03-07  sixfeetunder: No, that was 1.f3 and 2.Kf2

Apr-04-07  Eurotrash: Is this what happens if you turn off the computers opening books?
Apr-04-07  MrPatzer: <Eurotrash: Is this what happens if you turn off the computers opening books?> In all seriousness, maybe the strategy was to take Zzzzzz out of its opening book. Or maybe the strategy was to hope Zzzzzz would promptly explode upon being faced with 2...Ke7, thus giving Joker the victory by default.

Some call me the Gangsta of Love.
Some people call me Maur-ice,
'Cause I speak of King to e7...
Mar-12-08  Sleeping kitten: Joker probably touched his king and had to play it.

I wonder if such a move has ever been played in correspondence play, it wouldn't be less funny.

Sep-22-08  ravel5184: Zzzzzz was not to be caught napping.
Sep-22-08  ILikeFruits: wheres...

  whiteshark: It's more a running joke than a joker.
Dec-16-08  WhiteRook48: ...f6 saves Black, maybe Joker wanted to joke around with his King's death.
Dec-16-08  Knightmare001: Anyone else notice how this opening was classified? It is called the "French Defense: Normal Variation". Nothing about this opening seems normal to me. Was it named after a player named Normal?
Dec-16-08  WhiteRook48: Retarded King Defense: Joker variation, 2...Ke7 (F60)

  alexmagnus: What the Zzzzzz? :)
Dec-16-08  fich: Zzzzzz...this game is a joke. LOl!
Feb-17-09  WhiteRook48: Joker thought he could draw this...
He must have been joking when he played 2...Ke7.
How is 2...Ke7 the "Normal Variation?"
Nov-20-09  hedgeh0g: 47...h5 is an interesting attempt at counterplay. Anyone analyse this move?

Yes, Abby Normal.

Dec-15-09  Phoenix: <Yes, Abby Normal.

I always split a gut when that scene occurs in Young Frankenstein.

Or is that 'Frankenshteen?'

Jan-01-11  chesschampion11: why not 3 ♗g5+ ? winning the Queen

  Sastre: 3.Bg5+ f6 saves the Black queen.
