Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-14  Abdel Irada: What does the symbol in your avatar mean?

(And while I'm here: Welcome, and congratulations on your Holiday Clue success.)

Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: Thank you. 卒 is a black pawn in Xiangqi.

Dec-15-14  Abdel Irada: Chinese chess. I should have known that; I live in San Francisco, and see people playing it now and then.

In fact, I've also downloaded a Xiangqi program, although I played it only once before the laptop I had it on was stolen.

I may download it again on my new computer, but frankly, the program destroyed me with such dismaying celerity that I think it's too strong for me; I will lose, and not understand why.

So: Time will tell.

  Penguincw: Just dropping by to say hello, and also congratulating you on probably becoming the first user to ever solve 3 puzzles in a row.
Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: Thank you, <Penguincw>.
Dec-16-14  Abdel Irada: It still amazes me that you've been here for four years, apparently in total stealth mode, and ex nihilo you have leapt onto the Holiday Clues leaderboard.

Is this a prepared variation, Mr. Marshall? :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: As you can see some clues weren't so difficult. It's a bit of luck, I think.
Dec-17-14  Abdel Irada: Not so difficult for *you*, perhaps. For me they are quite impossible. :-S

Dec-18-14  MostlyAverageJoe: Just curious: what is the origin of the '7krzem7' handle?

Prawdopodobnie 7+7=14, czy tak?

Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: Polish word 'krzem' means 'silicon' in English.

I used it to be registered on some Polish chess site. The atomic number of silicon is 14, or 7+7.

Actually, it's a random word.

Dec-18-14  MostlyAverageJoe: Ok, I see. I thought you might be Polish... (I am), hence the last sentence of my post:

<Prawdopodobnie 7+7=14, czy tak?> == <perhaps because 7+7=14, right?>

Dec-14-15  MostlyAverageJoe: Congratulations on #18! You got it impressively quickly.
Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: Thank you, <MostlyAverageJoe>. Nice puzzle.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Another quick one (#32). I believe it only took you about 5 minutes to solve it.

FTR, I wasn't even close, as I was looking up members of the Rush band.

Dec-23-15  MostlyAverageJoe: Congratulations again on #56. Specializing in solving my clues, aren't you ?-)
Premium Chessgames Member
  7krzem7: Thanks.

<Specializing in solving my clues, aren't you ?-)>

Well, it seems so, although I'm just trying to solve some clues.

Dec-13-18  centralfiles: So the answer to the clue was the simple punny Colonel Sam Flagg??????

There's an old page online titled "the colonel's chess page" created by a player in CG's database that just so happens to contain the phrase "your flag is down" in the few line of verse it has.

To quote:

<"I came in and walked around. Somebody yelled, Your flag is down,
Mister Dzindzichashvili,
Mister Dzindzichashvili,
I wish somebody would tell me what Dzindzichashvili means!

What, lost your Bishops,
You naughty fishops?
Then you shall have no play!">

This short page was created by Col.
George L Sicherman

The chance of this being an unintentional random coincidence is about ZERO.
