|Mar-07-14|| ||TheFocus: <Pulo y Gata> LOL! Yeah, that is what I will do if I ever get this darn time machine to work.|
|Mar-07-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: Betcha it'll be one hella fight to get to ride the cursed machine first. I for one would want to do a book after winning every tournament in sight. Something like "Pulo y Gata: Life, Games and Times", the horological plural would not only be a sort of Kirsan-alien-abduction of the past, but also a futuristic salute to chessgames kibitzers.|
|Mar-07-14|| ||TheFocus: Well, I promised Richard Branson he could go on the initial flight.|
It's his money that is footing the bill.
|Mar-08-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: What really bugs me ... GM R. Huebner gave many question marks to the play of both players. |
Moves like 8...Qg5! (Which is also the first choice of several engines, to include Fritz 13..)
|Mar-08-14|| ||Granny O Doul: I remember Fischer on God, sort of. He said first of all that he didn't think anyone could beat God, but that He (Fischer) could probably draw with white.|

You've mentioned ...Qg5 a few times. Any other Huebner annotations you disagree with? Any you agree with?
Black got mated in 23 moves, so he probably screwed up somewhere.
|Mar-08-14|| ||N0B0DY: knows the better annotator.|
|Mar-08-14|| ||whiteshark: fyg: Hübner gave move-assessment symbols for the following moves:|
|Mar-08-14|| ||john barleycorn: The <LIFE annotator> is not too specific on Qg5. Except "the engines say so". His own input as a "master" = zero|
Just had a look at Reti's "Die modernen Ideen im Schachspiel" and Tartakower's "500 master games of chess" where : 8....Qg5 "this simultaneous attack on two pieces proves illusory. Better would be 8...g5 9.Nf5 Qg6"
The first mention of 8....g6 that I found is in von Gottschall's book on Anderssen.
However, he is getting more feedback here, than his webpages and videos have viewers. I am under the impression he produces third rated stuff on purpose to get any kind of attention...
|Mar-08-14|| ||john barleycorn: Even Kieseritzky had his doubts about Qg5:
<ceci n'est pas le coupe juste>
|Mar-08-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <keypusher> I am working on completely redoing my annotations for the game ... I shall post it when I am done. (I literally began this project last November. First, it got sidelined by the World Champ. match between Carlsen and Anand.) |
I continue to work on it.
I literally have done around 30-50 DPA's. (And tons of sliding.)
I don't believe in work done quickly. Too many GM's (and others, like KC) who crank out something in just a few minutes, their stuff isn't worth even looking at twice.

Literally, eh? You mean as in <not metaphorically>.
|Mar-09-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I am fascinated by the engines.
Remember - when I first came up ... the late 1960's and early 1970's ... computers that played chess were just a pipe dream.
Every time I subject a game to close scrutiny, it finds something new. (Unless someone else has already subjected that game to deep engine analysis.)
|Mar-10-14|| ||TheFocus: I am surprised that <keypusher> was the only one to see I was being sarcastic about Steinitz.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: OK ... I thought you were being 100% serious ... my mistake! (But you did fool me.)|
Its easy to detect sarcasm in a voice, when I read something, things like sarcasm?!? I just don't pick all that up.)
|Mar-10-14|| ||john barleycorn: <TheFocus: I am surprised that <keypusher> was the only one to see I was being sarcastic about Steinitz.>|
I also saw it IMMEDIATELY. Just did not post it. QED!!!!!!!!!
John Barleycorn I
|Mar-10-14|| ||TheFocus: LOL! Just having fun.
Steinitz would probably have taken me 10-0!
|Mar-10-14|| ||TheFocus: Steinitz and I would have had some long conversations about gout.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Gout ... what the heck s that, anyway?|
|Mar-10-14|| ||john barleycorn: < LIFE Master AJ: Gout ... what the heck s that, anyway?>|
Ask the doctor on your next visit to the ER.
|Mar-10-14|| ||perfidious: One thing sure: you don't want gout.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||OldTimr: Gout is painful hard to walk on feet because of uric acid buildup. Like arthritis.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||TheFocus: Gout is what I suffer from. It is the most painful type of arthritis around.|
Steinitz suffered from gout.
I can get a flare-up in my big toes, knees, ankles, or arm. it is caused when uric acid builds up in the body. Imagine your nerves turning into glass, and then someone squeezes you real hard and breaks all that glass. That is gout. You will never know true PAIN until you have had gout.
I don't care how painful your back spasms, kidney stones or childbirth is, those are nothing compared to gout.
Last year, I suffered continuously from gout. It would leave one joint and then affect another joint. It was if it was traveling around my body.
I am lucky that I have not had a flare-up in the last six months.
|Mar-11-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <I am lucky that I have not had a flare-up in the last six months.>|
Praise God for that!
|Mar-11-14|| ||keypusher: <LIFE Master AJ: <I am lucky that I have not had a flare-up in the last six months.>|

Who do you think gave him gout in the first place?
