Appaz
Member since Jun-19-04 · Last seen Dec-20-14
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: Could Fab draw a World Champion match game in this state? http://media.washtimes.com/media/im... That's blindfold, horizontal chess - you got to have <real> talent to master that! :)

Appaz: Nice to see you post again <frogbert>.
 
   Dec-15-14 London Chess Classic (2014) (replies)
 
Appaz: The 3-1-0 system of scoring gets kind of weird here: the three winners have lost more points (8) than they have gained (7). That doesn't seem like an impressive result, but maybe the numbers gives the right picture: proving your superiority over five other players by beating one of ...

Appaz: <<tranquilsimplicity> Sorry: the previous post is at the wrong "game".> FTFY.

Appaz: There is a turkey up next to the cg-logo today... Must be some exotic, cultural reference I don't get. Eagles and turkeys...they're a weird bunch these Americans.
 
   Nov-26-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Appaz: If Carlsen had not come around, it's quite possible that the World Champion for at least two more years would be an old guy named Viswanathan Anand, with seven successful World Championship wins. That's how good he is.

Appaz: You guys discovered this early. I should have payed more attention to Michael Adams <Classical games: Magnus Carlsen beat Michael Adams 7 to 1, with 4 draws> Even a client may deserve respect for his skills. Great work Mr. Adams!

Appaz: <chancho> Just go on and confirm that you satisfies all his expectations, please. I've always liked your kibitzing, but only on the basis that you were <American, white, male, semi-educated, generally ignorant>. A white supremacist is what he mean.

Appaz: Got me there, <Stonehenge> :) <<Eggman> "Super-GM" has never been understood to include only the top three or four players in the world. Absolutely not.> Of course not, but I expect more to come. 20 years ago it was easier: everyone above 2600 was a "Super-GM". This ...

  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.
