|Mar-07-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: <The first real grandmaster was Emanuel Lasker. There is nobody to study from before him. Once Lasker appeared on the scene, chess really began to take off. I have learned NOTHING from a study of Morphy, Steinitz or anyone else from the early era. And, quite frankly, neither have you.>|
The Focus would have been a world champion and have written a hit book series "My Lousy Predecessors".
|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-22-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.lifemasteraj.com/old_af-...|
For the handful of people that have asked me, I am working on an update to this game. I am only doing a little at a time, so it might be awhile (2-3 months?) before I finish.
|Mar-22-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <<I am surprised that <keypusher> was the only one to see I was being sarcastic about Steinitz.>>|
Well you got me. (Totally!) Reeled me right in.
In person, I can detect sarcasm or joking. But in print, I have a much harder time telling when someone might be pulling my chain. (You may call me gullible and naïve, it would not be the first time that has happened. Probably won't be the last time, either.)

One sci-fi writer - I forget which one - had a theory ... as you traveled back in time, you would lose any knowledge that was gained in the future ... that the time stream would <automatically?> strip you of any knowledge that did not belong to that era.
I.E. If you took a ride back to the days of the first stone age ... in the earliest days of man ... when you stepped off the time machine, you would be dumb as a brick and not even remember/know how to make fire, much less operate your time machine.
|Mar-23-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: I have a theory that if one will travel back in time you would become what you were at that time: an ejaculation, a mote on someone's eye, a dust, an idea... This obviously is what happened to advanced sentient beings who attempted to travel back in time. This make travelling to the future more alluring since you can chance on a better self in the future. But not always, because you can also be something else: a dead body, a memory, an echo, a dust, a footnote...|
|Mar-23-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: You were probably just a speck of food (on a tooth) in a T-Rex's mouth ...|
|Mar-23-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Or ... in its stool.|
|Mar-23-14|| ||john barleycorn: Or as cannonfodder for 1800's
|Mar-23-14|| ||john barleycorn: <LIFE Master AJ: ...

You succeeded without the equipment...

Actually, it doesn't matter in this specific case:
0-0 = 0+0 = 0
