playground player
Member since Oct-01-06 · Last seen Oct-21-21
NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website,

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via

Update: No. 8, "The Temple," and No.9, "The Throne," are now in print, with No. 10, "The Silver Trumpet,"due for release any day now. Full Member

Oct-01-21  rbd: <playground player: <rbd> I would rather this debate were not conducted here. Too much history for me to find the time to study it. Nor do I wish to get involved in anyone else's feuds>

I will post response of this post of <playground player> in the forum of <key pusher> within next few days/weeks (whenever I get time ) and expose lies of <thegoodanarchist> and other people of his gang viz <big pawn>/<George Wallace>, <diceman>, <optimal play> , <ohiochessfan> , <Keyser soze> et al

I wish everyone was as earnest a seeker/explorer of truth as me - but then , people have limitations : not everyone understands teachings of Jesus , in fact , very few people do.

Oct-01-21  rbd: I understand <playground player> that you have priorities other than to understand teaching of Jesus , to learn that ultimate/deepest reality is non personal god , Absolute - there is no God other than you and me , other than us , body dies not us , we are eternal Absolute.

2) just know that teachings of Jesus are learnt through Christian non dual mysticism.

3) whenever you ready to wake up and seek The Truth , feel free to ask me for my help and I will help you learn the teachings of Jesus.

4) till you understand meaning of 'god' (at the level of intellect at least , if not at the level of experience/being), you may want to remove the phrase 'godless fool' from your bio lest smart people should laugh at you when they read your bio.

All the best.

  optimal play: <playground player> User: rbd is a serial pest.

As far as I can tell, he has been banned from this site on numerous occasions only to return under a new username each time.

He is universally known as <Nozzle the Parrot>.

He knows absolutely nothing about chess so it defies logic for him to even post on this site.

I made the mistake some time ago of trying to help him with some concepts which he was confused about, such as the difference between pantheism and panentheism. He seemed appreciative at the time but then I couldn't get rid of him and so he includes my username in many of his rants, along with a list of other people on this site who have in some way had the unfortunate experience of encountering him.

His forte is to invade various forums and blather on and on and on with gibberish about topics of which he has no clue.

He paraded around the Support Forum a while ago announcing he was leaving this site, and much to his embarrassment, nobody cared.

He has since been bothering various long-suffering members on their forums with his nonsense, and even vitriol, repeatedly denouncing this site and stating each time that this will be his last post before he leaves forever. By last count he has declared 57 times that he is leaving <this racist, rotten site> (his words), but he continues to hang around like a bad smell.

You do not want an infestation of <Nozzle the Parrot> on your forum.

Oct-01-21  rbd: Why do people get triggered and get personal ?

I would post all the arguments (in the forum of <keypusher>) about true teachings of Jesus (which are learnt through Christian non dual mysticism) and those who ready to wake up can help themselves (or try to refute) , others may continue hurling personal attacks/insults.

I will teach about pantheism/panentheism also there - <optimal play> does not understand and given the low intelligence level of <optimal play> , he will take many years to understand, if at all.

Calm down , guys . Focus on issues instead of focusing on people and hurling personal attacks/insults. Focus on teachings of Jesus.

All the best. Regards

Oct-01-21  rbd: Guys, let us calm down and drink the nectar of teachings of Jesus.

Do I get <Amen> ?

Hallelujah ! Hallelujah, hallelujah, <HALLELUJAH>!

  thegoodanarchist: The nurses know:

<Minnesota State Representative Erik Mortensen recently conducted a Town Hall meeting in his district due to the number of healthcare workers who were contacting him about COVID-19 vaccine mandates, where most of them were about to lose their jobs for refusing to receive a COVID-19 shot...

One nurse explained how the media is actually lying by stating that most of the healthcare workers are now fully vaccinated for COVID-19.>

Here it is, 2021, and she STILL has to explain that the media is dishonest. Should be common knowledge by now.

<She said... she knew of departments that were only about 20% vaccinated, and that ER workers had an especially low percentage of workers who were fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

“Why aren’t people asking the nurses why they don’t want to take the shots?” she asked.>

Because you are giving the wrong answer (aka, the truth)!

<She said she ran an ER department, and that it was tragic that they were seeing so many heart attacks and strokes, and that it is obvious that they are related to the COVID-19 shots.>

Here is the link to the whole post:

Oct-02-21  rbd: Hey <optimal play> , I have exposed your lie about pantheism/panentheism in the forum of <keypusher>. Please respond in the forum of <keypusher> only. I do not want you people to pollute, by vomiting personal attacks/insults , this civil forum of <playground player> , who always tries to have conversations in civil manner, .

Thank you . Regards.

  playground player: <rbd> Enough is enough. I AM sounds like a pretty personal God to me.
"We are gods"--I'd be hard put to find a less worthy object of worship. I'd rather this discussion continue somewhere else.

That is what I said - I will have this conversation in the forum of <keypusher> and respond this particular point - about 'i am ' being personal god -in that forum too.

  optimal play: <Corruption Probe Forces Australian Premier To Resign>

<Posted By:leeduigon Posted On:October 4, 2021>

That's the New South Wales state premier, not to be confused with the Australian prime minister.

Anyway, her replacement has just been elected by the parliamentary party. His name is Dominic Perrottet and he has already come under attack from sections of the left-wing media because he is a devout Catholic with six children.

Now, unless he turns out to be a "devout Catholic" in the mould of your own Joe Biden, they'll probably give him a hard time.

However he is conservative in a nominally conservative party, so there may be cause for some optimism.

We'll see how he goes.

  thegoodanarchist: <playground player: Where does it end? >

I am guessing when George Washington is ruled to be black, but I am probably too optimistic.

  Troller: <thegoodanarchist: <playground player: Where does it end? >

Surely he would also need to be <non-binary> leaving us guessing at which pronoun to use.

  playground player: <Troller> Everyone knows George Washington was a disabled trans woman who came here illegally.

  playground player: <Steamed Colleagues> Is there anything about this current so-called administration that isn't phony, pandering, condescending, and false?

  diceman: <playground player:

Their greed, fascism, and contempt for the little people.

Premium Chessgames Member
  playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> Just for fun, here's a little chess essay I wrote a while ago as a blog post.

Have any of you ever tried to play using these repealed rules? How did it go?

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I have never tried it but I sure want to. It sure would take a Babson Task to a different universe.
Premium Chessgames Member
  playground player: I've never seen one of those Babson problems.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Read all about it. It's beyond belief to me the human mind solved it.

Premium Chessgames Member

Why is it called Babson

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <The task is named after the first person to speculate about the existence of such a chess problem, Joseph Ney Babson, in 1884>

Just amazing.
