No - that's o.k. We relate to other s via our own experiences.

A sad fact of New Zealand is at that of the so called "developed" or "Western" nations we have had one of the highest youth suicide rates in the world.

So much for the nonsense about the green clean (it's not) and peaceful place - it's not.

But life goes on and not all is bad.

  wordfunph: When GM Lembit Oll's wife left him, he asked one of his friends, "What kind of ads are these in the newspaper --- beautiful girl invites bachelors to have a cup of coffee." He got the explanation, but he was not a ladies' man. He liked to gamble in casinos, but he never went bust. His strategy at the blackjack tables was: after losing a hand, he doubled the bet and continued to do so till he won.

(Source: New In Chess Magazine 2009-06)

Nov-07-10  Jim Bartle: That strategy does not work, of course. At some point you will not have enough money left to double your previous bet, and then you will have lost.

That may not occur often, but if you play long enough it will happen once, and that's all it takes to leave you with nothing.

Apr-23-12  LoveThatJoker: God bless, GM Oll!

  Richard Taylor: If you study modern games you keep seeing games played at top level by Oll.

When I met him I recall he said he was studying logic, I think particularly in relation to computer logic. Maybe in 1993 that was as I was studying some philosophy and Logic was a paper in Philosophy which is also used in computer courses as a paper towards a computing degree. It has some relationship also I suppose to digital or gate logic.

I say this as I was trying to recall what he was like. Tony Miles waas in the same tournament as I was and hewas although I didn't get anywhere near there level..! It was good to see GMs here in NZ. My son says Oll was rather small fellow whereas Miles looked like a fat Hippy!! Of course Miles ran away with first prize! maybe Murray Chandler suggested the play here?

May-04-12  King Death: < Jim Bartle: That strategy does not work, of course. At some point you will not have enough money left to double your previous bet, and then you will have lost...>

The problem in practice is this for sure but even if you were granted the dream of an unlimited bankroll, there are still table limits and this is what you run up against. That's the problem with the Martingale System. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin...(betting_system)

Aug-26-12  Cemoblanca: Sad story! Chess alone does not heal all wounds, and the human psyche is not infinitely resilient and robust! Unfortunately! RIP!
Jan-28-13  waustad: In V. Ivanchuk's master class at Gibtel 2013, he spoke very highly of Oll's chess ability. Here is a link: http://www.livestream.com/gibchess/...

  Richard Taylor: Yes. There was another lecture about Oll. He had great talent, like this poor fellow Vugar Gashimov. It is really sad when people die so young.

  offramp: I have always wanted to read <Speak! Memory> but I keep forgetting to buy it.
Apr-23-14  Nonnus: You may want to read it with its original title <Conclusive Evidence> then.
Apr-23-14  gars: A great talent who left us so early. May God have mercy on your soul, Grandmaster Oll.
Apr-24-14  epistle: <BISHOP TAL: What could this man have been so depressed about to take his own life.>

Maybe he was a guy who wanted it oll. It was oll or nothing for him.

  Richard Taylor: <keypusher> Plath! I like here poetry and Ted Hughes. Also of the so-called "confessionals" I like Berryman, Roethke and Robert Lowell. I also write poetry and have three books published. One is more or less just a cheap "chap book"...

  Richard Taylor: <keypusher> 'Child' is a hauntingly beautiful poem. I thought it was something from Macbeth but I didn't recognise it. I know the Ariel poems mostly...

John Ashbery is another US poet I have liked for a long time...

Apr-23-15  grasser: God Bless you Lembit. Depression is very hard to deal with. I play every day just to escape the pain of this miserable condition. Maybe one day I can have "Player of the Day" too based on Grasser-Winokur and Grasser-Camejo, and be at your side in Heaven.
