Bobwhoosta
Member since Jul-25-05 · Last seen Feb-22-15
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.

Bobwhoosta: <starry2013> In general it's nicer to have the rules clarified beforehand, and not changed at the very end of the tournament especially.

Bobwhoosta: Aronian just needs about a month off, after which he'll be ready to storm the trenches and take no prisoners. Mark my words: He gets his time off, and we'll be seeing a new Aronian. Really, the old Aronian, back in form after pushing himself out of it with too many tournaments.

Bobwhoosta: <visayanbraindoctor> I concur, after attaining the WC Anand seem to become much more lackluster. Actually since losing his title I believe he's played better chess, although the shift in style has resulted in more losses, and of course he isn't immune to blunders. But he's ...

Bobwhoosta: <thegoodanarchist> While that might be the case, I don't see it as anything nearing the foregone conclusion you seem to see. Besides, it would be a function of both ignore and oldness/newness of accounts, so people who have annoyed a nice number of other people in the span

Bobwhoosta: <Kanatahodets> Agreed. If Carlsen at his current strength were transported back to the 80's, I think he would not only rival Kasparov( pure speculation as to who would be stronger), but he would also completely crush just about everyone else out there. Now he just crushes ...

Bobwhoosta: Black has the simple plan of Rb7 and Qb8, and Alekine's gun will net more pressure than an egg in a dutch oven. Hope Carlsen doesn't crack.

Bobwhoosta: <keypusher> I had the feeling that this was slightly better for white. The D.S. Bishop for black has an open diagonal but nothing to bite on, white has a slight advantage in the center but nothing to write home about, and the outside passed pawn for black could become ...

Bobwhoosta: <beenthere240> From his perspective perhaps the future might have been a bit dim?? However, I'm sure watching his teammates cash in on his gallant deed of demolition provided adequate "compensation" for his sacrifice.
