|May-11-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: << YouRang: Rats. Missed it. I could tell that there were lots of tactics in store -- particularly discovered check and knight forks -- but I didn't quite put them all together correctly. :-( >> |
I guessed Qd8+, but I had to annotate the game - and make a web page out of it - to be 100% sure that it worked. (I had some real doubts.)
Probably - if everyone was honest - you would find that a lot of people might have GUESSED the correct move, but did not work it out in every detail. (And I will bet a lot of people saw the check, but were afraid to make the move or unable calculate it out in all of its various, pecuniary details.)
|May-11-06|| ||ChessPraxis: With a name like Bonch-Osmolovsky I knew the guy had to win. Throw in his first two names and it's a cinch.|
|May-11-06|| ||TheUnkraut: 18.Qd8+!!, followed by N:e6+ and Bg5+. Very nice. Easy to find when you know "there is something" -but a real drama when you analyze your last blitzgame and realizes, that you probably have missed such a nice possibility.|
|May-12-06|| ||TheUnkraut: (ChessPraxis) i forget to give you a big "lol". - Yes, this was what i thougt first, too!;-)|
|May-12-06|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Did anyone (from this site) look at my web page on this game yet? |
I was just wondering ...
|May-12-06|| ||Fischeristhebest: Nope.|
|May-12-06|| ||technical draw: Bonch-Osmolovsky? Wasn't he the wrestler that almost killed Bugs Bunny?|
|May-15-06|| ||zb2cr: If I'm remembering correctly, Alexander Kotov, in his book <Think Like a Grandmaster>, told an anecdote about Bonch-Osmolovsky. Bonch-Osmolovsky had such a horrible blunder that he yelled at himself! I think Kotov also mentioned he was an amateur boxer.|
|May-15-06|| ||percyblakeney: <zb2cr> The blunder game:|
Bronstein vs M Bonch-Osmolovsky, 1946
|Jun-05-06|| ||Whitehat1963: What marvelous, crystal-clear vision on display by white!! Gorgeous finish!! 18. Qd8+!! is indeed worthy of two exclamations!!|
|Jun-06-06|| ||technical draw: I see all our recent comments were deleted. In a sense I am glad since I said things that later I was to regret. I believe in spirited debate but it seems that with some that debate is impossible since at the slightest flesh wound they yell, medic!|
|Jun-06-06|| ||chancho: <technical draw> Hay algo nuevo en tu caso contra el gobierno?|
|Jun-06-06|| ||technical draw: <chancho> Nada, sigo esperando. Esto parece que va para largo. Quizas un dia reciba la llamada de oro!|
|Jun-06-06|| ||chancho: <technical draw> Dios quiera.|
|Jun-28-07|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Alguna gente nunca aprende.|
|Jun-28-07|| ||whiteshark: Desgraciadamente yo no entiendo cualquier Portugese.|
|Jun-30-07|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Pienso que es español, no portugués.|
|Jun-30-07|| ||chancho: <AJ> I was asking <technical draw> back then about his lawsuit against his employer. (US goverment) I hope you did not think it was directed at you.|
|Jul-01-07|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <chancho>
Actually, I just got a new program. (Given to me by a friend.) It (supposedly) teaches Spanish, (I'm useless at it!); and also has a basic translation engine as well. I got to tinkering with it, and comparing it to some others.
I have a few friends who speaks Spanish. My Father-in-Law also is fluent in both French AND Spanish! (He was born in France, but grew up - as a child - in Mexico and also completed most of his schooling there as well.)
Its really weird to compare a human's translation to a machines. (Sometimes they get the basic words right, but lose the meaning of many "flavors of the words" ... idioms? ... I am not sure of the correct way to say this.)
Anyway, its much like the programs that play chess. Ten years ago, they were useless at the higher level tactics.
---> I wonder how long it will be before some program can instantly translate most commonly known languages? (Care to make a prediction?)
|Jul-03-07|| ||chancho: <AJ> The way technology is advancing in these times, a program of that type might be available in the not too distant future. Not much of a prediction I know.|
|Jul-03-07|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I agree that technology moves very quickly.
I told many people that it seemed inevitable that computers would - one day - play chess better than a human. However, I NEVER thought it would happen in my lifetime!!!
Look what progress the computers (technology PLUS software) have made. In 1997, most programs were basically toys. They might aid the average player in anlysis, but there were not too many programs that could scare a GM. Today, not even Kramnik can defeat Deep Fritz.
