|Oct-27-05|| ||mandar: Pls any one can try this out:-Chemistry
Calculate the heat of cyclo propane if the enthalpy of CO2(g)is -393.5,water is -285.8 and propane is 20.42.The enthalpy of isomerisation of propene is -33Kjs
2.Calculate the heat of dissociation of acetic acid if Acetic acid + NaOH gives sodium acetate + water
|Oct-27-05|| ||cu8sfan: <mandar> You don't expect us to do your homework for you, do you? (-;|

|Oct-27-05|| ||DrDum: Wannabe asked, "Classical World Championship Title.?" I'm not specifically sure, but I know it has something to do with Kasparov's schism. As opposed to the FIDE title.|

|Oct-27-05|| ||Octavia: <Richard> Did you watch Murray Chandler become a GM? & are all New Zealanders wee guys?|
|Oct-27-05|| ||TheAlchemist: A little problem. White to move and win:

|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <Octavia> Murray is younger than I - I started playing chess again (last I had played was about 1966) when I was 30 in 1978 -he was shortly to become a GM - he was contemporary with a certain Kai Jensen (who I know and in fact may have become a strong GM also but he is or is/was involved very much invovled in literature as I am) there were others I think <Benzol> knows the names - but I met Murray once - he showed me a dramatic game he lost by an oversight in a tournament in Indonesia -in the mid 80s - he also published a game of mine I played in the New Zealand Correspondence Chess Champs - he started playing and played correspondence and found that he was playing his neighbour! At one stage he was very high in the world rankings. Never as high as your Anand or Kramnik etc !|
|Oct-27-05|| ||TIMER: <TheAlchemist> Be7 wins, it is an interference move.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <Octavia> <Re Murrray Chandler> he is coming here for an International tournament in Dec/Jan or early Jan 2006 - The Queenstown Classic - other players (including some IMs and GMs) are coming from all around the world - its apparently a beautiful place in the South Island (lakes and mountains etc) - I've never been there - but the touranment is open -anyone can play. There also quite a big prize fund.|
<Re the floods> - it's true that "Western Nations" seem to get more publicity over these things - also the earthquakes - but they are getting big publicity here - but I always feel a sense of powerlessness over here. I don't think that the "West" are callous -I think it's the way things are organised or not organised - also big disastors always seeem so difficult to handle in one's mind...they always seem to happen elsewhere -but we have had quite bad flooding here a few weeks ago (down the line - not here in Auckland) also and the poor suffer here more also. (But someone will ask me the definition of suffering now!)
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <Octavia: <Richard> Did you watch Murray Chandler become a GM? & are all New Zealanders wee guys?> I missed that - yes - Murray is not a large fellow for sure - Im not very big but he's a bit smaller than me or was If irecall correctly - I think if people get sufficient nutrition the height or build is about the same anywhere in the world - but some of the All Blacks are giants! Built like brick schitzxen houses.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <The Alchemist> yes - a good example that one -hard to spot Be7 -useful idea.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <TIMER & Richard Taylor> Congratulations!|
The main line runs like this:
<1.Be7! Qe6> (forced, any capture results in a quick checkmate, Black must defend the Bf6) <2.Bxf6 Qxf6 3.Qg4> and Black's best is <3...Qg6>, where after <4.Rxg6 fxg6 5.Qxg6> White mates in 8 moves at most
|Oct-27-05|| ||Benzol: <Richard> <Octavia> The following two quotes from Ortvin Sarapu are interesting.|
"In 1975 a new name came to New Zealand chess, Murray Chandler. His first New Zealand Championship was in Dunedin and he scored +3 =1 -7 for 3.5 points; not bad for a fourteen-year-old youngster.
I did win against him and that is the only time I have beaten him. He has since scored so many wins against me that I consider him my 'bogeyman'".
"Murray Chandler was at that time one of three promising players. The others were Robert Wansink and Kai Jensen. Unfortunately they lived far apart, Wansink in Dunedin, Chandler in Wellington and Jensen in Hamilton, so they could not practice together. All three shared the title of New Zealand junior champion, but only one made 'Grandmaster'. Jensen and Wansink still play occasionally".
Paul Spiller told me recently that Kai has started playing again after a very long 'Fischer-like' break. Richard, Ewen told me some time ago that Robert doesn't play much since he suffered from a hit and run accident in the South Island some years ago.
There are games in the database here of both Jensen and Wansink by the way.
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <PaulLovric> Was that Gary Lane? I saw him at the Zonal here which he won - I thought he was an Aussie born and bred as they say - he may have been born in Britain -but I dont know.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Saruman: For the problem below 1.Be7! Qxe7 ( A. Bxe7 Qf7, B. Bxg7 hxg7+ Kg8 Qh8#, C. Rxe7 Rg8#, all other moves wins) 2.Qf5 Bxg7 3.Rxg7 and mate with Qh7.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <Benzol> Thanks -sad about Robert. I saw some of the games -I was impressed with Kai's games. I have never met Robert though. |
Murray has written some interesting Opening books - one on the Bb5 lines in the Sicilian -
<what is the strategic reasoning behind Bb5 in the Sicilian?> Similar ideas to the Nimzo-Indian?
|Oct-27-05|| ||guy6051: hello everyone. my first time here!|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <TheAlchemist: <TIMER & Richard Taylor> Congratulations!> I have to confess I saw TIMER say Be7 - I may have found it -but as soon as I saw TIMER's comment it was clear it wins -but I didn't analyse it very deeply - the motif is great though.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Benzol: <guy6051> A very warm welcome. We all look forward to your contributions in future.|
<Richard> In 1974 or was it 75 I had the pleasure if that's the right word of playing against Kai. I lost in 35 moves on the White-side of a Benko Gambit. It was the first time I'd ever seen it. I think I still have the gamescore somewhere.
