Did you know…that Senex is a huge fan of the Boston Celtics? In 1967, he lost over 20,000 dollars betting that the Celtics would repeat and win their 9th-straight championship. To pay off his debt to the Gambino family, he was forced to work as a mafia enforcer. His experiences would later form the basis of the movie “The Professional”.
Did you know…that Senex and Veralynn faced Garry Kasparov and IBM’s Deep Blue in a 2v2 team match held in Gdansk, Poland in 2011. Kasparov started with the Sokolsky opening, while Deep Blue pursued a Stonewall defense. Veralynn started aggressively with a 6 pool, harassing early with zerglings. Senex lucked out with a proxy raxx in Deep Blues natural expand, and Veralynn was able to exploit with her death ball before Deep Blue could pull off the Castle Kingside. Kasparov tried to save the situation with the Latvian Gambit, but was forced to GG. As a reward for winning, Vladimir Putin allowed the world to live for one more year.
Did you know…that Mao Tse-tung’s famous dictum “power grows out of the barrel of a gun” was actually a botched translation of Senex’s classic phrase “you burn your finger on the stove, and you miss the whole game”
