    Speaking of avatars...Nimzo still reminds me of Joaquin Phoenix that time he appeared on Letterman (even if Joaquin technically didn't really show up)...

    He really showed up I saw that episode and remember feeling sorry for him - it was a great put-on since I rarely feel sorry for anyone besides myself - almost as good as the put-on about the university study of drawing percentages here that everyone is so riled up about

    Andy you should come down to Swaziland sometime we really would enjoy tortur...er I mean really enjoy your presence down here.

    I'm in Swaziland not Switzerland! BUT I do plan on retiring in Switzerland along with a hefty "honorarium" from Swaziland's Treasury Dept in return for all my long and devoted years of "service"

    Aha!  It seems these miscues run in my schizophrenic family (after all, Latka thought kco was from Austria). Wink

    Not clocks - and the Black Forest with all it's nice walnut is not what it used to be, but Swaziland does have an active and notable tradition of wood carving.

    White - Nf3 into symmetrical English, Catalan, Qc2 Slav, anti-gruenfeld, gligoric kid.

    Black - French, Slav (not semi-)

    Black - I like the Sicilian for 1.e4 and Grunfeld for 1.d4

    White - Any Opening, It is black who's going to decide which opening to make.

    Only partially, but there is no doubt black has a huge say in it.

    You can't choose to play the King's Gambit if black responds 1...c5.

    You also can't choose to play the Grunfeld or Sicilian if white opens with 1.b3.

    Yah, not all the time. But most of chances it is Black who made a pick of opening. Especially if the opening move was common like 1.c4 1.d4 1.e4

    1.b3 was a rare one.

    I play Queen's pawn as white, and as black I do c5 for e4 or c4 and d5 for anything else.
