|May-09-12|| ||Strongest Force: <JustAFish>, that is one reason why I want THE FABster to come back home.:)|
Btw, where the hell is Guam?
|May-09-12|| ||Jason Frost: <parmetd ... Jennifer Shahade who they are employing has 100% of the responsibility for updating the USCF website>|
What are you talking about?
|May-09-12|| ||TheStormofWar: <"Btw, where the hell is Guam?">|
Guam is in the western Pacific Ocean. It became a US Territory after the Spanish American War I believe.
There was a few fun games in this round, particularly by Gata and Naka. Watching the live stream reminded me I need to do it much, much more.

The fact that he resigned shows it wasn’t a prepared sac. :):):)
Probably just “automatic thinking” the queen was still on d1
|May-09-12|| ||parmetd: What part is confusing? That st.louis chess club employees her or that the uscf employees her as well as the online editor for all web content.|
Honestly people, there is no need to be rude.
|May-09-12|| ||Robin01: I wonder what game will be shown today?|
|May-09-12|| ||newton296: <Robin01: I wonder what game will be shown today?>|
says robson vs kamsky ! guess the decided to show the top seed!
who was game yesterday?
|May-09-12|| ||parmetd: Nakamura is top seed.
yesterday they showed Nakamura-Hess
I would hope Onischuk-Lenderman was consirdered as thethe only twogo players withand 1pt vs 1pt
but can't go wrong with Kamsky.

Being rude? I just asked what you were talking about.|
Still not really sure, but I'm guessing your line of reasoning goes something like this, Jennifer Shahade has some duties that relate to web-content for both sites, therefore she has <<<<100%>>> of the responsibility for updating the USCF website>, therefore she's responsible for the <unprofessional ways> of the St. Louis Chess club.
Really compelling argument ... grab the touches!
|May-09-12|| ||Jason Frost: And she's the <Chess Life Online Editor> not the <online editor for all web content>.|
|May-09-12|| ||OlafR: Why is only one american player in US Championship?|
|May-09-12|| ||parmetd: So much for not being rude lol
My apologies for giving jeniffer's job description rather than her title. What an awful mistake!!
Maybe people are missing the fact that this event is the biggest most important one in the US. Getting some pretty basic things correct should be a top priority.
No Jenniferneed is ofthe course note solely responsible for the mistakeUS (certainlythis uscf wise she is) but stccwise I do not know who they have assigned (probably mike wilmering but who knows). But anyways, explaining logic to you is a waste of my time so I will just add you to my ignore list instead.
@olafr we have already established there are two american born (robson an d hess) however if we don't count those that immigrated young (nakamura and lenderman) then our definition of American might be too strict... afterzll this country is almost entirely composed of immigrants. So the question is what should the definition be?
As far as fide is concerned, as long as you have USA fide federation then it is okay to play.
The uscf adds to this a rule (does not apply to wild cards) that you must live in the us a year and had fide usa federation a year first.
Should us citizenship be required as well?
Should the year as usa federation apply to wild cards as well?
Open ended questions for discussion.

Supposedly, Capablanca said that when he played <9. … Ba6> in this game: Saemisch vs Capablanca, 1929, he had forgotten that he hadn’t yet castled!
From this case it is clear that players somewhat stronger than Stripunsky are capable of such “automatic” mistakes.
|May-09-12|| ||Jason Frost: <parmetd...but stccwise I do not know who they have assigned (probably mike wilmering but who knows).>|
Exactly my point, you don't know who is responsible, and yet you make statements like <Jennifer Shahade who they are employing has 100% of the responsibility for updating the USCF website>. Even if I was <rude>, I at least know what you wrote, you're criticizing Shahade when you don't know and have no reason to suspect (since chess life online is not the same as the main cite) that she is the one responsible for updating the us chess championship info.
Not that any of this matters, now that I'm ignored, sobs... :'(
|May-09-12|| ||KKDEREK: Kamsky and Robson, nice game going on..|
|May-09-12|| ||Strongest Force: Looks like Hess was winning, the last I checked.|
|May-09-12|| ||Albertan: Checkmate! U.S. Chess Championships In St. Louis:
|May-09-12|| ||timhortons: <‘They say that a chess player consumes more calories during one chess game in an event like the U.S. Chess Championship then a soccer player does an entire game,’ says Rich.>|
is this statement correct in medical point of view?
if we put in comparison the amount of calories a professional football player like ronaldo consumed in an entire football match and the amount of calories carlsen loss playing in a very high level match.
i know professional football players can loss 5 pounds in weight after an intense practice session,does carlsen lossing weight after a high level match?
|May-09-12|| ||timhortons: How many calories to burn one pound? You have to burn 3500 calories to lose one pound of weight.|
i think its ridiculous to say that a chess player consume is this word same as burned more calories in a competition like US chess championship compared to a soccer player who played an entire soccer match.
|May-09-12|| ||Jason Frost: And I say cows can fly. I saw one ... near a tornado ... in a movie. True story.|
|May-09-12|| ||WannaBe: I mean, really, how many over-weight/fat active chess players there are?? Ever see those pictures of the Chinese team? Or photos taken/shown on chessbase??|
Dude, if you look at those pics, they are all skinny as a rail!!
Just look at any/all of the pics when Bobby was active, or Kramnik, Anand, Carlsen, Leko. They look obese to you?
|May-09-12|| ||WannaBe: Ben Finegold doesn't count...|
|May-09-12|| ||Jason Frost: <timhortons: How many calories to burn one pound? You have to burn 3500 calories to lose one pound of weight.>|
I think that's highly dependent on conditions and what weight you're losing(e.g. heat, percent water weight, etc...).
Really, I'm sure chess players lose a decent amount more during tournaments than the average 9-5 person, but I've never herd of chess players having to eat 10k+ calories/daily while at tournaments, like serious athletes do.
|May-09-12|| ||timhortons: <never herd of chess players having to eat 10k+ calories/daily while at tournaments, like serious athletes do.>|
you cant compare a chess players caloric consumption and loss during a professional chess match to a professional football player caloric expenditure during an entire soccer game.
i hope they stop saying this kind of ridiculous statement just to lift up the sport of chess.
its a cheap shot.
