Good one amadeus! :-) Having just checked it very quickly - Moro on the left and 2910 on the right. Looking again I see "5,0 6" which tells the story... It's a good idea to 'sweat the small stuff' sometimes! ;-)
|Dec-30-06|| ||suenteus po 147: Congratulations to Morozevich on another impressive tournament win this year.|
|Dec-30-06|| ||you vs yourself: Moro will be a strong candidate for this year's chess oscar. Although Kramnik will probably win it, Moro's 2900 and 3000 performances can't be easily ignored.|
|Dec-31-06|| ||SniperOnG7: I hope that Moro wins the chess oscar. Kramnik already has a good share of the pie by having the wc title...
It's the creative people like Moro that keeps the game alive and winning the chess oscar will surely inspire him to create more masterpieces.|
|Dec-31-06|| ||TylerD: Well, if there is such a thing as 2nd place, when discussing the oscar, then, for sure, I see Morozevich there.
I d like him to earn the no1 spot - but I must admit that this year it does belong to Kramnik.
Kramnik has the highest performance rating of all players this year.
Kramnik beat Topalov in a match, defending his title.
Kramnik was best performer at the olympics.
Kramnik won Dortmund.
In short, he has won everything in which he has participated.
Morozevich is not far behind, in my own personal view, but I still feel, against my own will, that Kramnik should have the oscar for the way he made his comeback this year.
The only thing that brings K down a little, after all leaving M with a tiny chance to compete for the Oscar, was the computerspectacle.
To lay down so much energy on being beaten by a computer should be punished...
Playing a computer, however, is not chess, only a kind of speculative trainingsession without true (chess)value; so one can just close one s mind to the knowledge that the WC spent time giving the computernerds publicity.
BTW Happy new year everyone! Sheers for letting 2007 be a great year for chess! Personally I am hoping that it will belong to Morozevich - but then again, the results are secondary to beauty, intensity and creativty, so in that sense already 2006 belonged to M (and, in my own, highly subjective, point pf view, to myself: I played astonishing chess on the Internet this year; producing many games that, at my unknown level, were filled with beauty, originality and wit!).
Once again: happy new year!
|Dec-31-06|| ||slomarko: Yes i say Kramnik too. for his checkmate in one against Fritz.|
|Dec-31-06|| ||danielpi: helo. my name slomarko. i like dramnik not so good. i spel prety 4 u. my comma kee is broked.|

|Jan-01-07|| ||TylerD: Please, Danielpi, go back to making your cute little listings of things that you like and do not like... That habit seems better suited for you than this new attempt to bring us semantic comedy...|
|Jan-01-07|| ||slomarko: Hello, it's me, the magnificient Danielpi. At the moment i'm busy shuting a movie. It's gonna be about Kramnik, or about a benevolent dictator I haven't decided yet. I might very well do both. I'm the only one who can do that. Thats not to say that other can't do it. Stop posting on the same forum as me you damn little insignificant insect! Yesterday i've analasied Kramnik's games and I absolute loved the combiation of the sublime positional play with was resounding briliancy of his tactics. There's this annoying stereotype that positional players are defensive, enjoy closed positions, and accumulate small advantages. I couldn't disagree more. Kramnik's play reminds me a great of Morphy at his best. I'm gonna shot another movie about Kramnik, a triple move. What you say that's a triology? No i haven't made an error that was a regional difference thing. Triple can also be used in that contex albeit it is less common. And you have posted on the same page as me again you creepy little bugger. You're like Buffon. And don't you try to turn the tables on me you little pesky bastard.|

He might get it if he doesn't vote 1. Rybka 2. Hydra 3. Silvio Danialov like last year. LOL.
|Jan-01-07|| ||slomarko: This year its gonna be:
2. Silvio Danialov
|Jan-01-07|| ||acirce: 1. Fritz 10
|Jan-01-07|| ||suenteus po 147: 1. Kramnik's Toilet
2. Topalov's cranial chip
3. Nigel Short
|Jan-02-07|| ||danielpi: <slomarko> Heh. Nice try, but I would never write <briliancy>, <analasied>, <triology>. Stupid imitating smart still looks stupid, alas. <shot> is past tense. <shoot> is present tense. You know, if you're jealous about the filmmaking, you might want to consider buying a little handicam and shooting yourself a little digital video. I'm sure it would be real "neat".|
<TylerD> Yeah, um, thanks for reading my profile. Glad you enjoyed it. Sorry to have interrupted your very important kibitzing on the subjective beauty of Morozevich's "astonishing" play. Were you saying something about semantic comedy, too?
|Jan-02-07|| ||TylerD: Danielpi: that s Ok, we interupt each other all the time here on CG. In fact, that IS what we do, more than anything else, wouldn t you agree.
I read through my last post in which I adressed you... And I ll have to say that I m sorry about the way it turned out - feeling like an attack more than anything else...
I had no reason to jump you.
I wish you a good evening - and a happy new year!
BTW Yes, the subjective beauty of Ms play is in my own personal opinion a rather interesting thing to discuss.
|Jan-02-07|| ||danielpi: <And I ll have to say that I m sorry about the way it turned out - feeling like an attack more than anything else... I had no reason to jump you.>|
Fair enough. Water under the bridge and all that.
<I wish you a good evening - and a happy new year!>
<BTW Yes, the subjective beauty of Ms play is in my own personal opinion a rather interesting thing to discuss.>
Meh. It's a mess if you call something subjectively beautiful. Subjective? As opposed to being objectively beautiful? What is objective beauty, much less objective beauty in chess?
Mind you, I personally agree that beauty does exist objectively (which then allows the term 'subjective beauty' to be meaningful), but it's hardly the sort of prickly issue that you can get through without some considerable debate (which I'm not suggesting we start here).
What beauty is in chess (perhaps more relevant to this site) is an equally prickly question. I find myself a bit peeved when patzers start referring to sacs, skewers, and forks as 'beautiful moves' (which I'm not suggesting you're doing). To make a comparison, I find chaotic tactical skirmishing analogous to a marching band playing Sousa. Sousa, I should mention, is not someone that comes to mind when I think of 'beauty'. A critical quiet move, both unexpected and potent, seems to me the sort of 'epiphany moment' that enlightens and entertains. Like Webern's Op. 27 or maybe Bach's Contrapuncti No. 13 from Art of the Fugue. Something, anyway, closer to commonly held notions of beauty.
|Jan-02-07|| ||slomarko: wait dont tell me i'm gonna guess. you are also an expert for music.|
|Jan-02-07|| ||JointheArmy: <slomarko> What's wrong with that? DaVinci was the best artist, inventor and thinker of his time.|
|Jan-02-07|| ||slomarko: yes and <danielpi> is the best kibitzer, director, musical expert, linguist, sandbagger, <buffon> interpretator of our time.|
|Jan-02-07|| ||BishopofBlunder: <danielpi: ...What is objective beauty...?>|
That's when beauty is placed 'after' the verb in a sentence.
|Jan-03-07|| ||danielpi: <slomarko><wait dont tell me i'm gonna guess. you are also an expert for music.>|
Sarcasm duly noted. I attended two music prep schools with majors in composition and piano, won the Minnesota and Wisconsin State piano competitions, and studied with a silver medalist in the Chopin competition. I don't know what an "expert" is, but I think I should be able to reference music without your presumptuous chatter.
<yes and <danielpi> is the best kibitzer, director, musical expert, linguist, sandbagger, <buffon> interpretator of our time.>
What's an <interpretator>? You're like George W. Bush and Dan Quayle all wrapped up in one package.
<JointheArmy> Very good.
<BishopofBlunder> Heh. I like.
|Jan-03-07|| ||JointheArmy: <What's an <interpretator>? You're like George W. Bush and Dan Quayle all wrapped up in one package. >
I'm fairly certain he was referring to an internet preDator (Bufon's profession) but to save space combined the two.|
|Jan-03-07|| ||slomarko: no i wanted to say imitator|
|Jan-03-07|| ||danielpi: Hehe. Clearly a typo. Finger slipped. He typed "nterpre" when he meant to type "mi".|
