Cheapo by the Dozen
Member since Dec-13-13 · Last seen Dec-12-17
Hi!

My main chess distinction is to have been the worst player in US history to have had the top under-13 rating (I peaked at 1650). This was in 1972. Most of the books in my chess library use English Descriptive Notation; I still am slow at reading algebraic. I've played little chess since 1974.

I wrote a bit of a reminiscence about my era, posted at http://www.edochess.ca/batgirl/Dian....

Cheapo by the Dozen: For some reason, I looked at Qxe5+ first. Then I recalled it was Monday and quickly found the correct move. :)

Cheapo by the Dozen: Ack. <agb2002> showed that the poisoning of White's knight is pretty simple. Silly me.
 
   Dec-10-17 NN vs D Freeman, 2016
 
Cheapo by the Dozen: NN has been playing since the 1400s. It's impressive that he can play even this well at such an advanced age.
 
   Dec-10-17 D Freeman vs Laufer, 1993 (replies)
 
Cheapo by the Dozen: Nicely done! And somewhere there should be a game that deserves captioning with "Laufer is all you need".
 
   Dec-09-17 V Malakhov vs A H T dos Santos Fier, 2009 (replies)
 
Cheapo by the Dozen: So the puzzle boils down to not getting mated, not losing further material, and saving the draw?

Cheapo by the Dozen: How to beat Stockfish: Get it into an endgame and wait until it gets bored to death and gives away all its pawns.

Cheapo by the Dozen: Yet another AlphaZero game to which I have the same reaction -- AlphaZero's strategy was a steady and successful grab for space.

Cheapo by the Dozen: This is the third AlphaZero game I've looked at, and once again it seems that AlphaZero works hard to gain and extend a space advantage.
 
   Dec-08-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
 
Cheapo by the Dozen: This is the second AlphaZero game I've looked at, and in both cases AlphaZero seemed to put high value on space.
 
   Dec-08-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
 
Cheapo by the Dozen: It looks like AlphaZero placed high value on space.
