|Oct-19-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: <Jim Bartle> Then, what IS the point? :)|
|Oct-19-09|| ||Jim Bartle: The point was to call up an image of Peru as a legendary land. Not really accurate in every sense, but Peru certainly has its pre-Columbian legacy.|
|Oct-19-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: <Jim Bartle> I was actually joking earlier. Perhaps an :) would have been helpful.|
Just remember, you can't spell Peru without PU! :)
|Oct-19-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Sorry.
I never use the smiley because I think people should figure it out, at least if I'm sharp enough. Then I miss other people's meaning. Today's been a bit rough, so I'm ready to overreact, I guess.
|Oct-31-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: <Jim Bartle> Don't worry about Peru. Aside from Maccu Piccu, it also has llamas. Llots and llots of llamas! :)|
|Oct-31-09|| ||Eduardo Leon: I am from Lima and I can guarantee you that it is among the MOST HORRIBLE AND UNLIVABLE cities in the world.|
|Oct-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Somewhat true, though an exaggeration. Much of the rest of the country is fantastic, though.|
|Nov-03-09|| ||Raisin Death Ray: Also, Peru is home to that great soccer team, the LIMA BEANS! :)|
|Nov-03-09|| ||Shrunken Head: Great soccer tradition.|
|Nov-04-09|| ||znnnk: <PhilFeeley: There should be more of his games here. He's an up-and-coming challenger to Magnus.>|
He won't get anywhere near Carlsen.
|Mar-01-10|| ||ruelas007: To <znnnk>: life usually punches us where it hurts more. there's a saying that goes "a picture is wort a thousand words" and once you see this (http://torre64.com/modules.php?name...) pictures you'll have many thousands of words to think about.
Sooooo you said Jorge won't get anywhere near Magnus? He's also quite close to Spassky, Movsesian, not to mention Kosteniuk, etc
sincerely yours: me
|Mar-02-10|| ||OhioChessFan: <It seemed to me he had outplayed his opponent in nice anti-computer-style but in the end he lost anyway. Where did he go wrong? >|
45. e5 is a positional blunder, throwing away a win by allowing the Black Rook to the 4th rank. 46. e6 (46. Kh2 avoiding a Rook move with check is necessary)was the losing move, allowing Black to get doubled Rooks on the 4th rank.
|Mar-03-10|| ||Caissanist: Looks like he should get his GM title now. The FIDE website has him with exactly a 2500 rating, and he just gained a bunch of points at Reykjavik as well.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||Caissanist: It could be a while before he gets his title, however, since the Peruvian chess federation is notoriously slow and/or incompetent at processing title applications. Emilio Corodova had to wait a year until his GM title was confirmed.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||Tabanus: Three final wins secured a fine 6th place today in Reykjavik Open 2010:|
|Mar-04-10|| ||BIDMONFA: Jorge Cori|
|Mar-04-10|| ||Aztec Chess: Nice result at Reykjavik Open, Georgie Boy!|
|Mar-04-10|| ||s4life: Placed equal second at Reiykjavik Open with 6.5/9 that's nice indeed.|
|Apr-04-10|| ||Tabanus: He is hardly pleased with 4.5/9 and 87th place today in La Roda Open (Spain):|
|Jul-25-10|| ||Tabanus: 5th today in the XXVIII Andorra Open 17-25 July 2010:|
|Jul-30-10|| ||wordfunph: today is GM Cori's 15th birthday, one of the youngest GMs..|
|Aug-14-10|| ||Tabanus: 11th place and 2573 perf. in San Juan Open (Spain) 26 July - 1 August 2010:|
|Aug-18-11|| ||Caissanist: A really dreadful performance for Jorge in the World Junior, even while Deysi was winning the girls' section. I wonder what happened.|
|Nov-27-11|| ||twinlark: Well, whatever the reason, he has gone a long way in making up for it by winning the World U16 Championship 2011 in Brazil. Congratulation Jorge Cori!|
|Dec-15-12|| ||Conrad93: A challenger to Carlsen?
There are really some delusional users here...
