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. Full Member

Appaz: I got your "Refreshing" :) so I deleted the post.

Appaz: Beware all inactive kibitzers: the political inquisition of <Pacificknight> may move slowly, but it moves steady.

Appaz: Kramnik doesn't seem to hold Carlsen as more than a slight favorite either Kramnik, in a rare case of humility, also doesn't think Carlsen would be more than a slight favorite against himself (and not because he is old!). Worth to note is that he

Appaz: <<Petrosianic> I suppose a challenger could laugh at the champion. [...] I can't really think of any time it happened.> The "lend him the title" remark comes in awfully close (but still doesn't fully qualify, in my opinion).

Appaz: Karlow played well for 2000 player in my opinion. The relatively short number of moves is because he didn't shy away from the complications.

Appaz: <<diceman> <Reisswolf: But it seems that there is that "something" missing in his game.> Wins?> If you look at his results, the number of wins is definitely not the problem. Try again, you still have a 50% chance of guessing right.

Appaz: <<devere> In March 1814 the Russian army marched into Paris, under the command of its great general Michael Andreas Barclay de Tolly. In that case Russia wasn't a threat to Western Europe, it was the liberator of Western Europe.> Thanks for that one, it made me read up a ...

Appaz: It would surprise me if Kramnik has given up and will "save his energy" for Topalov. Some people might have forgot the end of the last candidates, but Vlad has certainly not. A win over Anand today will suddenly put him back in the race.
   Mar-13-14 Anand vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
Appaz: No boring first round draw here as I feared. I usually root for Aronian when Carlsen is not playing, but strangely enough, I'm feeling very happy for Anand right now. He has really struggled with the level of his chess over the last few years, so it's good to see that the blood ...

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.
