    You must be a non-player to consider a descent into that kind of madness to be lacking in edginess. It's not just a game ... But yeah I can see how this direction could lack general appeal.[/QUOTE]

    I'm not a playa. The intrigue for chess is there though, I'm trying to limit mad pursuits.

    Three game losing streak. It's all fun and games until the flying monkeys arrive.

    Closed position is all about pawn structure (mainly pawn breaks), and control of key lines and squares. Learn just that and you will dominate at that level, I guarantee it.

    But you're a cyclist? I understand, but the madness is part of the allure.

    I like to ride my bicycle or tricycle for exercise...and it is rare that I have a rant...I used to play chess... have had zumba classes here at church but did not participate... I like this thread, it has been sewing together some random thoughts of many... now I have wasted enough time, so back to work...since I am the pastor, I have to work on the weekend.

    I can sympathize, but a good pair of cycling shorts does that better than a good pair of y-fronts! At least when you're on the bike and the wayward fellas are threatened with pinching!

    Road,

    Three more pounds and I'll feel comfortable with cycling shorts.

    Use the rear brake first!

    Fall on your side first. I did a slow speed U-Turn today from the street onto the sidewalk and landed on my right butt cheek first. The cause was the freshly edged sidewalk, with a trench so big it caught my front tire. Luckily, no damage to me or to my Trek.

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Similar fall on my left side, a month ago, cracked ischium, off the bike for a month now
    Am feeling better though, just a little grumpy about the circumstances.
    NOW get the hell off my lawn.

    If I did it would be too warm, no, hot.

    I was dismounting and snagged my foot as I swung it over the saddle. Gravel on top of asphalt was not kind to my knees. They smart.
    I was wearing full gloves so hands did just fine.

    Ego fine. At my age and life experience not much ego left to bruise.

    You ruined the post with the last sentence. Up to that I had visions of some creepy old guy sneaking into a building to watch young winsome babes contort themselves in a Zumba class.

    Of course, you could still be creepy, and the winsome babes might all tip the scales at 200#.

    So I've achieved my goal of playing attack chess, often having little regard for the welfare of any given piece, not unlike a Russian infantry general. That means if I make it endgame I typically get clobbered. Got to work on the patience bit. One game under .500. Yelling at grandkids during the games doesn't help, wither.

    "Yelling at grandkids during the game doesn't help......"

    Laughing at the grandkid when he says "Excuse me while I fart. I hope I didn't ruin your lunch" (He's five)

    is also frowned upon!

    You haven't lived until you've spend some time on a chess forum. I've introduced to them the Alphonso Butthurt Attack and everyone is rushing off to the literature to check it out.

    Why is this on Page 2?

    I'm walking again, sort of. 1/2 hour shots on the trainer. Hide and watch, folks. A quick 100 miles is in my near future.

    I'm posting this as the zenith of my chess career:



    That player #4 forfeit his games, to my chagrin, doesn't detract from the fact that, for this one precious moment, I sit on top of the leader board.

    That is really clever. It begs for a sequel with the Grand-dad life. Give me some time.

    All vacation I struggled with the Spaniard to a draw. The rematch was over in less than 20 moves, vaulting me to the top. Pretty much a lock to move on to round two, where I intend to receive a thrashing.
