Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-11  GilesFarnaby: Mutesi had his King in the wrong corner. By move 67 he could have transferred it to the Q-side (i.e. where the dark queening square is for black) and get a draw.

Of course is not the only improvement, both players play horribly and I shouldnīt watch this games.

Before you take too hard a line on this game, read the bio at White's player page. In that context, this game is of surprising quality.

Jan-12-11  picard: <gilesFarnaby> i doubt you could beat either one. by the way Mutesi is a 14 year old girl from the slums of Nigeria. You sure must feel proud using Rybka or Fritz to determine that her play is horrible.

We can play chess whenever you want so that you can back up your opinion, or change it.

And the drawing method is not a Rybka affair: is elementary technique. I donīt want to know what kind of coach she must have had in order to not know that.

You didn't read the article in White's bio, clearly, so I'll post it here for your conveniece:

Phiona Mutesi is one of the poorest of the poor in AIDS-ridden rural Uganda, playing chess in a hut with sets that are so worn out the squares are barely distinguishable. Some sets with missing pieces. Her coach's chess was good enough to teach her the moves, not much more and so she's basically self taught without the benefits of coaches, technology or much in the way of decent competition.

May-08-13  p1q0: picard - you don't need to defend Mutesi. She's had a rough life but she's crap as a player. Most of the people who read this site would beat her - her ranking is <1700.

Don't elevate someone on a pedastal just because they've faced challenging circumstances. That just diminishes real accomplishment. It's the bigotry of low expectations.
