    Game 4323082
    Game 4313764

    One game came from a blunder though...and the other came from an unsound opening(at least in my opinion)

    while we're posting amazing, unlikely games. take a look at this amazing comeback. Ka6?? obviously loses on the spot, but a queen exchange really favors white too. technically, material is equal, and my pieces are ridiculously better placed.

    It'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!)

    I long for the old days when a running back, after scoring a touchdown, would just casually flip the ball to the referee, then trot back to the sideline like it was just another day at the office.

    As you both played KGA which was the unsound 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.

    I won a club championship game last night with it.
    No problem

    The 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.

    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.

    There is also a popular television program here, a "situation comedy", with the unbearably arrogant title "Everybody Loves Raymond" -- a particularly galling claim since the program represents everything that is mediocre and irritating about American television and the sensibilities of those who write for it. (I speak in generalities, of course: there are a few very fine programs.)

    So, having had a few beers the other night, and access to the Babelfish translation program at Altavista, it occurred to me that this sentiment would be better expressed by a prickly German character (they seem to have a flair for that sort of thing) than by my normal writing voice.

    My apologies for any confusion this might have entailed.

    the title means that IN THE SHOW everbody loves raymond not everyone loves the show and WOOT! WOOT! is like saying yipee or woo hoo.
