Quote from: Laser on October 19, 2022, 11:19:16 PMThis reminds me of a friendly little match played psychically between the Donald and Omarosa on a now lost episode of Who's the Boss Who's the Apprentice (maybe)?1. d4 e62. ♘c3 ♛f6Characteristically disdainful of team play and unconcerned for her own safety, Omarosa thrusts herself into the mainfray.Donald will naturally nudge her for the impetuous move, but secretly admire the dynamism displayed.3. ♘d5 En garde!
Quote from: WOTR on October 19, 2022, 11:46:57 PMAt first I was concerned that offering my services as the lead independent investigator might look suspicious. But then Trudeau appointed Justice Rouleau to head the investigation into him suspending our charter of rights and freedoms and literally bringing in martial law. He appointed a judge worked for the liberal party when his father, Pierre stepped down in the 80's. It might appear to any rational person be a kangaroo court and a show trial- but that is what we get in Canada now.So, in the fine Canadian tradition of not caring how obviously tainted an inquiry may be, I would be willing to take charge of this one.

Quote from: K_Dubb on October 20, 2022, 11:17:10 AMDear sir, I fear I must be be listed as co-defendant in this Digital Rape investigation as MDMD has pointed out my many violations of his sense of propriety by hitting on him. Since I have also regrettably solicited our friend WOTR in what he may choose to construe as a non-consensual way with the promise of butter tarts and other comforts, it seems clear that he can not investigate me, so two Special Counsels may be necessary.Yours ever, kdubb
Quote from: WOTR on October 20, 2022, 08:09:38 PMWhat kind of puritan are you? Perhaps you are residing in 1952 as opposed to 2022 where corruption is not only accepted, but celebrated and rewarded? WE need only employ the FBI and other alphabet agencies to suppress the story before the election. There is no need for anybody else to know of the butter tarts or other promised comforts. *With that said, I am happy to share the bribes responsibilities with Laser. It would probably be best. He can investigate the transgressions that take place in America, and I can focus on the commonwealth counties.
Quote from: pate on October 20, 2022, 10:18:21 AMHuh, that is not the move I'd make if I were the White Knight. Honestly I haven't even set up a board on this one to see what sort of cray-cray moves are available, as this is an opening I typically do Not See.With out setting the board up, I believe:White Redd4 e6N-c3 Q-f6N-d5 B-b7(?:?:?)... presumably B-e7Is a possible future for that opening?Nautical Shore.Speaking of are you volunteering for the IC position as well?

Quote from: pate on October 20, 2022, 08:54:06 PMWe should probably figure out who needs to get you sworn in so that you may begin the important work that is on the Table before you.If your investigation takes you in a wildly divergent direction, I say follow the leads.

Quote from: Laser on October 20, 2022, 10:24:17 PMThe white knight must take the black queen was the essence of an actual dream in my youth when stopping on a walkabout on a distant coast in a distant land.

Quote from: Laser on October 20, 2022, 10:24:17 PM...Speaking of volunteering though, I was entirely unaware that I had volunteered for anything. But if I must be dragooned, the IC position, whatever that might entail, is enticing enough.My volumes of Chess Informant have been hidden away for decades, yet their influence persists. Mea culpa.
Quote from: WOTR on October 20, 2022, 10:32:57 PMThe Muzaks reminded me that in addition to swearing in the required individuals, we must outline the porpoise of the inquiry as well as the consequences of the conclusions. Generally democratic republics list execution as likely outcomes- but I'm not sure that is the correct road to go down at this time (unless we are relying on the world being so outraged over Russia and the Ukraine that they will not notice.)As for the porpoise of the inquiry- perhaps we should leave it lurking beneath the surface until ready to spring an October surprise? We may just concentrate on gathering evidence to support our desired concussions at this time?
Quote from: pate on October 20, 2022, 11:19:15 PMIn my earlier physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion I misread the italicized word above as "physically" much to my present chagrin in a somewhat higher state of physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion.

Quote from: Laser on October 21, 2022, 10:09:03 PMThat was an offer of knight odds based upon the curious and premature activation of the Queen.Would you like to change sides? If so and accepting the challenge, my move now as Black will be 5. ... Q-e7
Quote from: pate on October 22, 2022, 03:13:26 PMNo side-switching required, I do not take this game at all SiriusLee. Had that been the case I would have set up the position from the beginning rather than attempt the thing in my very distracted mind.The initial four (or two pairs of) moves were made entirely in my head without the consultation of even an empty online numbered board; the one I was/have been using for the subsequent moves is this one:White Redd4 e6N-c3 Q-f6N-d5 B-b4Nxb4 d5N-f3 ...Your5 ... Q-e7has merit to cover the now lost Bishop, but is a Retreat which I tend to avoid in gameplay, always Advance!I have contemplated both:5 ... b6&5 ... Nc6and am particularly partial to the Fianchetto'd Bishop potential of the "5 ... b6" move. Which I believe might be part of my earlier wild "4 ... Bb7(?)" scheme. I think the Red Queen is out of immediate danger at this point, and prefer to increase her potential moves rather than restrict them. Even with the loss of the Red Bishop, I think this early in the game it could be a potential and unforeseen Gambit?If so, you might (should you be playing this "dream match" For The Win) look into the possibility.So, although I lean toward the "5 ... b6" move, your fondness for chivalric contests might persuade me to settle on the "5 ... Nc6" move?Do you recall how the game progressed in your "psychic Donald v. Omarossa" match?We might document it, hear.-p
Quote from: Jackstar on October 21, 2022, 09:32:13 PMThe situation is grim and dire.So I better go masturbate again.
Quote from: Laser on October 23, 2022, 03:18:08 AMA Strategic Retreat is often the mark of a great General.Of course, Omarosa will never retreat or back down. She will strut confidently through the midst of any battle. Her unrealistic and unrealized ambitions will take her to an inevitable and messy end. Though Donald will ever have his eye on this dark and fiery temptress. We know a juicy White House position in a do nothing capacity is waiting in the offing. He can't stop hitting on her.Thusly 6. Bg5...Where might we now find an appropriate kibitzer for the current proceedings?Practicing habitual self abuse, no doubt, in a desolate and haunted country estate.

In my youth, I found it to be quite helpful in developing my "middle game" abilities. I believe my father loaned it to me from his library during the time of our adventures to one of the local chess clubs in town.I don't recall exactly when I finally beat my father at the game, but he stopped playing me after that. I believe that is when I began to play a certain few of my high school classmates when I found their Chess Club in the Physics/Chemistry Lab one day.I believe the One-Eyed Old Man's interest in this book was two-fold: primarily due to its application on the Chess Board, and secondarily (this is speculation on my part, for he no longer recalls his earlier years due to senescence) its application in the development of Artificial Intelligence/Fuzzy Logic for a Gov't Work related project he was involved in during the late 1980s to early 1990s. Perhaps even earlier, as I understand self-guidance systems were being developed for various weapons systems before that time frame.I digress...In the interests of transparency, I have several amusing moves in mind (in addition to my eventual "T(x) ... B-b7" fianchetto):8 ... a5-or-8 ... h6-or-8 ... N-c6-or-8 ... Q-e4The above moves are roughly in order of preference, although I lean most heavily towards the "8 ... h6" move for reasons unknown to me.I suspect this is a result of my stubborn refusal to set the board up other than as a construct in my very limited mind.Out of curiosity, I decided to compare our little "Dream Match" to perhaps a more famous one:Which is not yet out of the realm of possibilities as a future "end-game" position, as far as I can discern...I have, of course, violated the Rule of "No Table Talk/Kibbitzing" by the participants during this "Dream Match" and by The Rules of Competitive Chess have already lost the game.This is only a Figurative Loss, as I have not noted an Official Complaint in regards to this particular infarction.

However, this was little more than Kasparov embarrassing himself by resigning with a proven draw on the board and later losing interest where Deep Blue had no guaranteed win. The development of greater recent interest has been the emergence of AlphaZero and its brutal domination of Stockfish.
