Calchexas
Member since Jan-09-04 · Last seen Oct-22-05
I've been playing chess for about 6-8 years, since I was 6 or 7. I'm unrated, but can easily beat most of my friends (Internet ratings generally stay between 1300 and 1400.) My favorite players are Nimzowitch, Alekhine, Fischer, and Kasparov. I'm currently working on a chess program.

As Black, I play the Najdorf, or the Petroff, or the Alekhine, or about anything else I can get my hands on, and I can't stand people who play 1.e4 c5 2.Bc4, or people who are d4 players who don't play Queen's Gambit. So, if you ever meet me, don't be mean and play the Colle System....

Calchexas: Hah. I can DESTROY all of y'all for huge prime numbers: *Celebrates 4455*2^100682+1st post.* *plugs number that he discovered.*

Calchexas: <Ron>: Thanks.
 
   May-21-05 Topalov vs Ponomariov, 2005 (replies)
 
Calchexas: Is there something better than 24.Bg5+, something that blows Pono's face off, or is Topalov just spending his hour laughing at Pono?

Calchexas: <PP> I don't know, it's more like "C'ngrats" or even "'Gratulations" here in Gee-orgia.
 
   Oct-31-04 Leko vs Kramnik, 2004 (replies)
 
Calchexas: Come to think of it, I seem to remember playing a game with a similar R+Ps endgame a little while back (which I lost.) I'll see if I can remember the exact position at any point from the dregs of my memory.

Calchexas: I saw ...Ne1, but not the whole continuation. VERY nice mating puzzle.
 
   Oct-18-04 Kramnik - Leko World Championship Match (2004) (replies)
 
Calchexas: <unsound: That article is interesting also for Kramnik's generous comment that Leko is a more difficult opponent than Kasparov right now> I think it'd probably be better to say that Leko is a more difficult opponent now that Kasparov was four years ago. :D But Kramnik can ...

Calchexas: <clocked> Um, Fritz gives 22.Rc3, which seems OK, but given that it then said 22...Ke7 23. Ke3 (WHAT?!), I don't know whether to trust its analysis. Hmm, why can't I beat that thing?

Calchexas: 2 world champs in a row, hmm...
 
   Oct-17-04 Nunn vs Csom, 1977 (replies)
 
Calchexas: That's mean. I saw 24.Qh5 and decided that it worked. I DID NOT look at 24.Bxh7+ to decide if it would work. The final score sorta surprised me.
