Bobwhoosta
Member since Jul-25-05 · Last seen Oct-13-19
I am now 30 years old, and have been following Christ for something like 6 years. I am eternally grateful that someone like me could be loved by someone like Him, and accepted by grace despite my many severe sins. I tend to be selfish, arrogant, and too often do what I know to be wrong because of some "justification" of the moment.

Eventually I will be a pastor if it is His will, but for right now I'm a mattress salesman in Houston, Texas. I have a wife and three sons, one 3 years, the second two years old, and the third just four months now. My oldest is putting together new and varied sentences, and he and the second are both fascinated by all types of machines. All three are a great blessing, although the youngest eats, sleeps, and has gas. He's smiling a bit now, and looking to learn this "sitting up" thing not too many months in the future. He takes a new step each day.

Praise be to the Father through Christ, who has richly blessed us.

   Oct-10-19 Carlsen vs Kuzubov, 2019 (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: Ok, well I was about to say "I was having trouble seeing if white's advantage was clear or not( I felt he had something, with more space, better pieces, and so on), but seeing that the bishop can't really take on f5 due to the e6 push becoming to strong, I've changed my opinion".
 
   Aug-28-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: <Keyser> I missed the round, but watched Daniel King's analysis. It was indeed a beautiful game, and I loved Carlsen's callout to Botvinnik.
 
   Jul-07-19 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: <CountWedgemore> Here in Kentucky we call him Magnus "No Smoking" Carlsen.

Bobwhoosta: <keypusher> Hilarious!!!
 
   May-31-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: In order to create an equal playing field, and give everyone a chance to win, Norway Chess has decided to lower the temperature in the playing hall by 5 degrees.
 
   Apr-29-19 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: <AdolfoAugosto> I agree. For a time it looked like the elite chess players had lost their fear of Carlsen. For good reason too: he hasn't had the best 3-4 years, at least according to his own standards. However, it's clear now that not only has he completely revamped his ...
 
   Apr-28-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: My thoughts on the last few years: Starting maybe 4 years ago, it seemed like Magnus was coasting on his laurels a bit, and at the same time his opponents were desperately trying to figure him out. At that point it looked like he was getting a bit bored with all the hard work. ...
 
   Apr-09-19 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2019 (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: I love this shift into a more dynamic style, something I have been seeing in Carlsen's game starting maybe a year or more before the WC Match. The transition was filled with many ups and downs, but it really seems he's found his stride, and is playing at a level perhaps higher ...
 
   Jan-29-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: <Sokrates> I think for the present I would still pick Korchnoi for "Worst Neighbor". It would be weird, the smell would be horrendous, and if I ever needed a cup of sugar, he'd most definitely slam the door in my face. One thing that surprises me is how much Seirawan loves
 
   Aug-25-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Bobwhoosta: Thank you for all your work during this difficult transition <chessgames.com>
