Appaz
Member since Jun-19-04 · Last seen Apr-01-15
Born 1968, living in Oslo, Norway.

I learned chess as a kid, and have been a member of different clubs since youth, but have never put much effort into it. To me chess is just fun, wich is probably why I have favourite players like Tal, Shirov and Morozevich.

Appaz: A peek into the darkest corners of human mind. Seems the general "locked cockpit" security measure enforced after 9/11 didn't consider an inside maniac, in this case. From the news, I believe American rules demands two persons in the cockpit at any time, while this has not been the ...

Appaz: Wesley So is a newcomer in the top and the top players usually don't bother to play open tournaments.

Appaz: Nah, on second thought, I don't agree at all. There a lots of valid reasons to cheer for a player: their character, gender/looks, life-style, personal encounters with them etc.

Appaz: Don't come here and <not> break our rules? Why are you complaining here? Direct it to your federation.

Appaz: ...to go totally <frogbert> here, that also means I've got a current favorite-troll ratio of 22 to 1 - or 22 to 5 - depending on your definition of "troll" in your math.

Appaz: Congratulations to Naiditsch! He beat the World Champ in classical chess and tied him in the tournament. Then he held the World Champ of rapids to a tie. Then he held the World Camp of blitz to a tie, before finally giving in on the Armageddon. I'm sure most people rooted for this ...

Appaz: No one will remember the tie breaks. In my world Carlsen and Naiditsch shared first place in Grenke 2015. Congratulations to both players!

  Check It Out: This has been a test of the emergency broadcasting system. If this had been a real emergency...holy @#$!...run for your lives!!!!!
Jul-11-12  voratco: <Appaz: <<voratco> And I know I am not in your ignore list either.>

I have to clear up a little misunderstanding, caused by me because I expressed myself unclear: you, or anyone else, has never been on my ignore list - I don't use it. However, after half a life on the internet I'm getting quite good at "manually" ignoring visual noise.>

Guilty!!! You failed to do what you preached. LOL. You got caught peeking through the glass window.

Like I told you, you will never acquire the impossible, manually ignore visual noise. Give it up and have some fun sometimes. LOL.

  MarkFinan: Now then Mr Appaz 😃 I just wanted to thank you for the kind words about me you posted on the So page the other day. They seem to be few and far between nowadays :) I did reply, but it wasn't till the day after and you know how decent posts can get burried over there, so I wasn't sure if you'd seen my reply.. Anyways, as much as I don't like them lot I do have a kinda guilty pleasure confession... I like Wes So! I think he plays some good chess, I don't really care about his nationality in the same way I don't care about Nakamura's because I like his chess too, although I don't really like him. I think that fanboy term when describing chess players is ridiculous. I like Carlsen, I like him, his attitude, his humbleness and his chess.. But I ain't no fanboy as someone called me the other day. Anyways, I just thought id stop by and say thanks, because even though im sure we've had crossed words before, I really can see who the good and reasonable folks here are. I won't get started on who isn't, lol.

  Appaz: Hi, everyone, sorry for the silence. Last post I read was that of <voratco>. This page is not meant to be very active, but feel free to post.

Even you <AJ> :)

So, hello, Merry Christmas, Glædelig Jul and that <wordfunph> said, and thanks.

See you around.

May-14-14  SugarDom: For a country with ridiculous amount of money. I can't believe they are considering withdrawing from hosting the Olympiads.

Stinginess?

  Appaz: I'm shocked, but still not surprised, if that is possible.

It's embarrassing, but I wouldn't worry too much. We peasants up here are a little slow, but our pride in such things usually overcome the peasantry.

May-15-14  john barleycorn: Did it ever before happen that an olympiad was cancelled just by financial issues? Don't know but I'm sure a wealthy country with the world chapion among its citizen won't like to be the first.

Yes.I think it was Argentina and miracously saved by Holland.

  cro777: "Only once has FIDE faced an Olympiad host dropping out at the last minute – in 1994, when the Olympiad was moved from Athens to Moscow two months before the first pawn was pushed. That move resulted in the worst-organised Olympiad of all time."

May-15-14  john barleycorn: thank you <moronovich> & <cro777>. I guess Norway is not facing a financial fiasco as Greece did. Somehow, I have a feeling that the olympiad as well as the title match are material for the FIDE election campaign and manipulations within.
