Another little known fact - Roman had three chess-playing brothers: Milan, Napoleon and Venetian. Venetian was particularly good at playing blind.
Aha! So this must have been a chess talent from a very, very young age (or he got his name only later in life). Otherwise, there is no way to explain how his parents were able to give such an appropriate name. After all, the most famous Venetian Doge was Enrico Dandolo, known for leading the siege of Constantinople while being stone-blind...
The only alternative explanation is that an elder brother of his took his eyes out with a bishop after loosing to the ZubenelgenubiZubeneschamali Attack ....
No puns on "wood"? I didn't see one or I wood have posted it.
Everyone is barking up the wrong tree in this thread. (so far)
Are you sure they're not barqueing up the wrong mast?
Baroqueing on the teak-decks also I suspect?
Doesn't it depend what your pieces are made of?
This lame opening, the ZubenelgenubiZubeneschamali Attack, hyper-accelerated or otherwise, was refuted decades ago by LM Leonid Plooplopnikoff. After 1.k5 m7 2.n4 q9! 3.k6 s4 4.n5 sxk 5.jxs w14#!
Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
I'd keep your wood away from this opening
it looks fraught with dangers and slippery positions.
sorry ill appoligize now... am i banned? damned starship troopers brain bug
Is that what that is?! I thought it was........ well, ya' know.....
Okay, here's a strange thing. Usually when there's a spelling anomaly in the title, it remains that way in the address window, even if it's been changed.
Here we have an anomaly in the title, but with the standard spelling in the window!
I suspect that bearded tyrant guy is up to something.
