There once was a player named Bobby,
To whom chess was more than mere hobby,
He beat Boris Spassky,
Completing his task he,
Retired and got crazy and gobby.
There once was a player named Kieseritzky
Do you really think I can find a rhyme to that?
You've got to be joking
What are you smoking?
Where's my whisky as I listen to Stravinsky on a Swiss ski?
There once was a player named Lasker
Who used to play the Traxler
He became World Champion, but didn't tell his wife - he refused to fax her
There's only one thing you can say about this
That was very lax, sir.
Jose Raul Capablanca, Visited his banker, The richest in Cuba, He bought a gold tuba, What an absolute wan*er.
The last 3 replies have all failed to "Limerick" correctly...
There once was an Aussie named Rookie
Who played Chess if you gave him a cookie
His Limericks, though
Were not appropo
And his wife is withholding the nookie...
Said the lovely young maiden from Norway,
As she hung from her heels in the doorway:
Come, Magnus, let's play,
I don't have all day!
I think I've discovered one more way.
There once was a magician from Riga, When attacking with white he was eager, To crush his opponents, Some beautiful moments, The chance of defending was meagre.
Alexander Alekhine, pronouncing his name is head wreckin, Some say it wrong, a slip of the tongue, It's probably worth double checkin.
I thought my style was Karpovian, That I played like Tigran Petrosian, I'm fooling myself, My game's in poor health, I was crushed by Varuzhan Akobian.
What a surprise to see you here on these forums, Fabiano Caruana!
There once was a player named Capablanca
Who often attacked on the flanka
His opponent's King was usually checkable
His manners were impeccable
When he mated he always said, 'Thank ya!'
Im a chess player
it isnt a desire
it is my ambition
to self nutrition
it is not a guitar
it is not a jaguar
it is my car
on the road to far.
There once was a player named Svidler
Who was known as a constant fiddler
He knocked over the clock and spilt his drink
Then kicked his opponent and gave her the wink
He said, "You wanna date?" She replied, "You're in mate - you didn't expect that, did ya?"
There once was a player named Short, Of sad news I have to report, His glory days over, He busks down in Dover, And sleeps in a Ford Escort.
Nice work, everyone! Glad you joined in the spirit, even the non-limerick poets.
There once was a player named Wei Yi
An ending he found he was all at sea
So he went for the attack
But she sac'd right on back
1-0 to Patsy from Cincinnati and she was mighty glad, see.
