|Feb-11-11|| ||takchess: TPstar,
Thank you. I'm assuming my inability to find games is user error.
next time I'll write down the names on paper and verify spelling before entering them into the search screen.
That being said, there is a nice tactic in this game that would make a good puzzle of the day.

|Feb-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: Just saw where Tonya Harding is pregnant. The kid(s) don't know what they are in for. Maybe the back area of the trailer can be penned up as a baby room?|
|Feb-11-11|| ||Penguincw: I'm just dropping by to say hello.|
|Feb-11-11|| ||turbo231: game of the year
houdini vs rybka
|Feb-11-11|| ||Penguincw: Today,I just discovered this area.I don't know if it is new or not.Some people may already know about this but come check it out anyways (it's for premium members only though) Chessgames Playing Zone|
|Feb-11-11|| ||technical draw: And TD plays his first game on chessgames new playing zone! A friendly draw with <Rapid city chess>. It's pretty cool. Check it out....|
|Feb-11-11|| ||turbo231: Chessgames Playing Zone wants me to download microsoft silverlight, is it safe to download? Will I have problems with it?|
|Feb-11-11|| ||redorc19: Is chess a waste of time? Explain...|
|Feb-11-11|| ||Travis Bickle: TD I'll give ya game|

|Feb-11-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <Penguincw> Where did you find Chessgames Playing Zone on the site?|
|Feb-11-11|| ||redorc19: <micartouse> so... do you agree with said quote?|
|Feb-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: My high school calculus teacher said it was a waste of time. He was probably just jealous of not having an interesting hobby. He was the sort of fellow who could go to an Elvis show and say "You know, I don't know what all the excitement's about...".|
|Feb-11-11|| ||Phony Benoni: The only greater timewaster than chess is arguing whether chess is a waste of time.|
|Feb-11-11|| ||micartouse: <redorc19> The most useful lesson chess teaches is complexity. We cannot solve chess or even come close to it. Yet chess is only 64 squares, 32 pieces. Why do we think we can solve economic, religious, social, political problems where the pieces are infinite and the board is formless?|
We can use principles, of course, as in chess. But exceptions and surprises are always around the corner. At some point we have to be humble and admit defeat - we don't really understand much of anything.
Chess is useful insofar as it helps clarify this.

|Feb-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: I do think the part of the brain that is used to visualize chess positions is better developed if you are a chess player, especially if you are studying more and more challenging parts of the game. It helps with your other problem solving activities.|
The only problem with chess is, for me, if I start playing blitz Saturday morning I might not get out of the house till 4:00 pm.

But if one does both simultaneously, it saves time.
|Feb-11-11|| ||NakoSonorense: Oh man, that Chessgames Playing Zone thing has the potential to be a huge time-killer.|
By the way, I am the first member to score a win! Users <aberent> and <Sargon> have a few already, but it appears that they were during the testing period (last time they logged in was last month).
Kudos to <chessgames.com>! Now we know why they have been absent during the last few days!
|Feb-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: Why are there no games by the engine Houdini here?|
|Feb-11-11|| ||Phony Benoni: There were. They must have escaped.|
