|Mar-29-10|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: When I see a perfect record i always suspect the strength of the opponents. Some nice miniatures though.|
|Mar-29-10|| ||Nightsurfer: Hi <Autoreparaturwerkbau>, I agree, these are miniatures, nothing more - but maybe they are a little bit entertaining, hopefully!|
|Nov-29-12|| ||FSR: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> Judging by his record, he is probably the greatest player since Louis Eichborn and Prince Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia.|
|Nov-29-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR> No, I am worse than those two guys that you have just mentioned ... but I simply do not like those games that I lose ... and there are many, of course ... but those games with my goofs are not worth to be mentioned ...|
|Nov-30-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <Nightsurfer: <FSR> No, I am worse than those two guys that you have just mentioned ... but I simply do not like those games that I lose ... and there are many, of course ... but those games with my goofs are not worth to be mentioned ...>|
I wonder if your opponents feel the same way about games *they* lost.
|Dec-01-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <Abdel Irada>: I am damn sure that my opponents are supposed to be not too happy with the publication of those game records ... but what shall I do? Shall I kick in my own ass?! It is up to them to go public with my blunders at the board ... ;-) !|
|Dec-01-12|| ||Atking: <Nightsurfer> You might be interested to know the Shogi meijin Moriuchi is playing the open of London. If you have time to go there.|
|Dec-01-12|| ||OhioChessFan: When I see grammatical errors in bios, I tend to take them to editors and ask the errors be fixed. On the chance you wrote the bio (I checked to see if you had a forum), I will mention it here:|
<In 1987, after doing research as a visiting scholar at the University of Copenhagen, he has published a thesis on the protection of fundamental rights in Denmark, Der Grundrechtsschutz in Dänemark.>
"has" is spurious.
|Dec-03-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <Atking> Thank you very much for the info that <Moriuchi> plays the Open in London! Unfortunately I have no time to go there! :-(
<OhioChessFan> Thank you so much for spotting the error - please ask the editors to fix that, thank you very much in advance! :-)|
|Dec-05-12|| ||FSR: <Nightsurfer: <FSR> No, I am worse than those two guys that you have just mentioned ...>|
I think it is generally assumed that Prince Dadian paid famous players to lose brilliantly to him. I don't know what the story is with Eichborn, and AFAIK no one does. Presumably (like you) he actually lost some games too. See
|Dec-06-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR> I have lost - and I will lose, for sure - many many games (and I assume that the percentage of games that I win is probably less than 50 per cent, blitz games including, and the percentage of games that I win in a more or less noteworthy way (by a nice combination or so) is probably less than one per cent or so ... :-( ... ;-) ...!|
And now let me please clarify one thing - since there has started to popp up the name <Prince-Dadian-of-Blablabla ...> in this context - ... : I never ever have paid a damn penny (or more ...) to anybody to fake something OTB, that is a question of honour, please ask my friends!
|Dec-07-12|| ||FSR: <Nightsurfer> I was not trying to impugn your honor. I understand that you prefer to submit your wins rather than your losses, and don't doubt that yours (unlike Dadian's) are real. I just meant that you should not assume that Dadian was in fact stronger than you are.|
|Dec-07-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR> Oh, thank you ... but in fact I have no clue how strong that Prince Dadian was in REAL play - without any faking it ... ;-)|
|Dec-08-12|| ||FSR: <Nightsurfer> I'm guessing he wasn't too good, but we'll probably never know - unlike Edwin Ziegler Adams (star of the apocryphal game E Z Adams vs Carlos Torre, 1920), who we know was actually weaker than pond scum. http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...|
|Dec-09-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR> Thank you very much for your assessment. And thank you for the interesting information with regard to E Z Adams vs Carlos Torre, 1920 , I did not know that some people disqualify that game as being a fake.
But - based on my experience as working as a lawyer parallel to my work as a journalist - I can only conclude that there may be some doubts, but there is no proof that E Z Adams vs Carlos Torre, 1920 is a hoax.|
|Dec-09-12|| ||FSR: <Nightsurfer> Reasonable minds can differ, but IMO there's no way in hell that the combination in Adams-Torre could have been played by someone whose only two known legitimate games were these:|

|Dec-09-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <FSR>, thank you very much for those game records, I see, I agree with you!|
|Feb-13-13|| ||sfm: It's OK to only submit wins.
Nobody with any intelligence thinks the man claim to only be winning games or to be the superior player on the planet.
I also don't see many losses included in the masters' publications of "my memorable games".
|Feb-13-13|| ||Nightsurfer: <sfm> Mange tak for your posting of <Feb-13-13>, mange tak for having made that point! And a big HELLO to DANMARK where I had a very inspiring stay in 1982 when I did my research for my thesis on Danish Fundamental Rights in Det Kongelige Bibliotek of Copenhagen!|

|Dec-26-15|| ||zanzibar: Yeah, <HMM>, now that you mention it, she does look a little like Janet Jackson.|
|Mar-29-17|| ||Fusilli: <Nightsurfer: ... but I simply do not like those games that I lose> ... <It is up to them to go public with my blunders at the board ... ;-) !>|
Interesting take. Of course I don't like losing either, but I have submitted many losses if I think they are interesting games.
Yet, there is a threshold of embarrassment that I don't want to cross. I would not submit my most embarrassing games.
