I remember it was very late at night, maybe 11:00 or 11:30. Big fella comes in screaming about God knows what. I think maybe Halpert had stolen his car, something like that.

magilla: <Mack> My information was from the same message board to which Mr. Day refers - I don't know Bruce Harper personally.

magilla: from game #5 - Ruger vs Gebhard, 1915 after 13. ... h6 [DIAGRAM] 14. d6 - opening up pin on Black pawn at f7, leaving Knight at g6 effectively undefended from capture by White queen with resulting considerable kingside pressure once the h file opened for White's rook by hxg5.

magilla: <Richard> thanks for your response. In looking back at my earlier kibitz to you I see I was kinda babbling a bit and did not mean to attribute to you some of the comments about the legal profession - I was mostly just stumping in general and in response to the earlier kibitz ...
   May-26-07 Colle vs J Delvaux, 1929 (replies)
magilla: Chernev's book (Batsford's New Algebraic Edition) has the following move order: 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. e3 e6 as opposed to the present game: 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 3. e3 d5 I note the Chernev move order more closely tracks the traditional D05 Colle System move order

magilla: I'm adding this game to my (long) list of things I do not understand in life.

   Apr-02-07 Kashdan vs Euwe, 1932 (replies)
magilla: I'm surprised that Max Euwe (or is that pronounced Euwe?) would have failed to see the threat opened up by his 28. ... Rg8. I gather he was keen on his own mating attack against the White king, but I don't readily see Black's threat even with R-Q-R lined up - doesn't White have too ...

magilla: <bebop1> yep, 33. ... Qe6 is checkmate (as would be 33. ... Qh5# or 33.... Qf6#). There is a "suggest your correction" link below that can be used for reporting minor errors in notation to help clean up stuff like this.

magilla: Hey Brankat, Greetings from a fellow Vancouverite. I notice with approval your recent self-described hobby of spamming (yourself). In addition to your humourous postings, perhaps you would consider putting this hobby to some advantage (my advantage, actually). I am keen at some ...
