Originally posted by Mark AdkinsIt's the chess equivalent of an NFL football player doing a celebration dance in the end zone after scoring a touchdown. (Or even after sacking the quarterback, making a 10-yard run, intercepting a pass, or catching a pass.) They act like they've never done those things before. Pretty soon I'll expect to see NFL players doing celebration dances for just getting through a play without committing a penalty. (22 players simultaneously dancing on the field after every play! Imagine that!)
"WOOT WOOT!" ?!! Was ist dieser amerikanische Unsinn? Ich liebe nicht Raymond! Bah!!!!

One game came from a blunder though...and the other came from an unsound opening(at least in my opinion)
Originally posted by Dragon FireThe unsound opening was the Salvio gambit...it really gives white no winning chances. It lets black have an advantage which is the opposite of what you are tyring to do in the opening.

The KG is extremely playable for white, in my opinion, especially in correspondence where the tactics that trip you up OTB can be avoided.

"Woot Woot!"?!! What is this American nonsense? I do not love Raymond! Bah!!!!
Originally posted by Mark Adkinsthe title means that IN THE SHOW everbody loves raymond not everyone loves the show and WOOT! WOOT! is like saying yipee or woo hoo.
Perhaps this warrants some explanation for our foreign friends.
Here in America audiences, especially males in the audience, have developed an inexplicably crude and ape-like manner of expressing their approval: instead of clapping or cheering in the traditional fashion, they pump their fists in the air and shout "WOOT! WOOT! WOOT!" again and again. ...[text shortened]... by my normal writing voice.
My apologies for any confusion this might have entailed.
