Where does lutefisk fit in?

Jul-01-15  cro777: Arkadij Naiditsch: "Psychologically I can’t imagine Hammer’s situation. How to play against your boss? Against somebody who you helped become World Champion, accompanied to so many events and who you see is having a horrible event."

Does Hammer in Norwegian mean the same as the English Hammer?

Norwegian Hammer - If desired target is missed, you're not Norwegian.

Jul-01-15  epistle: The Norwegian Hammer didn't miss. They are compatible with each other.
Jul-09-15  wordfunph: "Yeah, I have plenty! I mean, Magnus is obviously one of them. It's a great benefit to have the world number one as someone you can just ask for opening advice or endgame strategy or whatever."

- Jon Ludvig Hammer (when asked for his chess heroes)

  perfidious: Time for another <asholight> to disappear.
Nov-22-15  thegoldenband: 28. Ne6 elevates this pun to the next level. Without that, it'd be merely clever; with it, it's bordering on sublime.
Nov-22-15  morfishine: <perfidious> Whats an "asholight"?

a bleached anus with an opinion?

  perfidious: <morf> First cousin to <AsosLight>, another poster who has no use for Kasparov and insists on referring to him as Weinstein to remind everyone in creation of Kasparov's Jewish origins, because he/she is a raving anti-Semite.

Far as I am concerned, one can dislike anyone they wish, including me, but the outright bigotry is repugnant, same as the oft-played theme on Rogoff of 'Islam must be wiped out'.

Nov-22-15  Ferro: Kramnik: pobre Carlsen
Nov-22-15  Ferro: Administrador: Aplaude


Nov-22-15  Ferro: Carlsen: En mi libro estás muerto
Nov-22-15  Ferro: Y Kramnik: me he reído, como un lobo
Nov-22-15  Ferro: Domdaniel: me río como Judas!
Nov-22-15  morfishine: <perfidious> Thanks, I try to ignore bigots due to their own ignorance


Nov-22-15  morfishine: <thegoldenband> This is not a pun, it is not sublime, however it is "sub"...


Nov-22-15  thegoodanarchist: <HeMateMe: <Whats an "asholight"?>

a bleached anus with an opinion?>

Hilarious! And this very well may be your funniest post of all time.

I may not always agree with you, but I thank you for the guffaws.

Nov-22-15  thegoodanarchist: <morfishine: <thegoldenband> This is not a pun,>

Per usual, it now seems, for GOTD titles.

< it is not sublime, however it is "sub"...>

For me, it is somewhere in between. I would describe it as "not a terrible attempt at being witty."

Nov-23-15  kevin86: a bad week for great champs?
Nov-24-15  MarkFinan: Morf.. I couldn't post this in your forum so I'll leave it here until you've watched it and it gets deleted.... Greatest midfield player ever! A royal command performance from Zizou :
Nov-26-15  morfishine: <MarkFinan> Thank you sir for that video clip. I'm now convinced that Messi is the greatest, and there really is no doubt in my mind; yet you've taken the time to highlight Zidane, who you know is my favorite

Perhaps, I've gone a bit overboard following his heroic efforts in winning the cup in 1998, but I think you have focused in on perfect clarity: Zidane may have been the greatest midfielder, but Messi is the greatest FOOTBALLER

While I think that correctly identifies our thoughts on this subject, I will always defer to your judgement

I am your obedient servant, morf


Feb-10-16  yurikvelo: this game multiPV:

Game was decided by 23. ... Bxd5?? (h6! or h5!)

If Carlsen didn't blunder 32. ... Rxb3?? and played Re8!, Hammer would have had hard time to secure win
