    I once really loved playing cricket but there are only the three stumps on each side and eventually the symbolism got too much for me and i took up chess. Now i read this. Even poker only has the 60 cards. I am thinking mega crosswords are the way forward

    If i ever saw you at a card table, remind me to never play poker against you.

    60 card poker with a 52 card deck? 54 if you include the two joker cards. The rest of the jokers aren't cards.

    @cowdungflung, there are 52 cards in a deck.

    Edit: Oh, we already cleared that up.

    @popcorn, there may be 52 cards in a deck, but not necessarily in the game!

    So what are the other 8 cards from/for? Are they pawns?

    Seven card stud is played with 60 cards:

    Note that seven cards to eight players plus four burn cards makes 60 cards, and there are only 52 in the deck. In most games this is not a problem because several players will have folded in early betting rounds. But there are certainly low-stakes home games where few if any players fold. If this is the case in your game, you may want to limit the game to seven players.

    I know nothing of poker but 60 card poker seems to be played..

    I don't think we're referring to a multi-deck version here ... the implication was that there were "cheat" cards being introduced into the equation :)

    The 13 year old Byrne / Queen Sacrifice game ... is there another player that has shown that degree of foresight and creativity?  Ever?

    I like that comment.

    At the end, there was nobody with him who loved him.  Very telling.

    Not to worry. Cows only live 15 years. Chess is ok for cows.

     

    And a cow beat Korchnoi. Btw i think it is 16 years, because of there being 16 pieces a side.

    I think that cow was cheating and using steroids.

    I have a book on checkers in my cupboard that I will study when i am 64. It is still many years away, but i believe in being prepared.. Or is this treason and should I stay loyal to the game even when the risks are so enormous?

    You need to get a book on checkers with a 10x10 board.
