Ilkka Salonen
Member since Feb-17-16 · Last seen Nov-17-17
I have made the song Stop the War for Opium, and I was in kind of @#$% list by the finnish police already. And then I did also some street art about a weed smoking social worker, after which the security threats against my person reached such levels that I decided to declare being 718 mentioned in the manuscript Liber AL. I wanted to know a little bit about quantum physics in my youth, and I did, and then I was like of, whatever, I don't feel like knowing more. Now I am trying to dig into the concept of scientific truth because there is something deeply wrong with modern medicine, and economics too.

I have also developed my own chess variation which I call Ichess or Ishakki. It has two rule alternations, basically.

1. Player can take his own pieces or pawns. That is a square occupied by players own pieces (not the King, naturally) can be occupied in players turn by another of his pieces when it would have the right to move there and the piece previously in that square is removed from the board.

2. Provided a player has less than 16 pieces and less than 8 pawns and the rank in question has a vacant square, he can use his move to create a new pawn to either first or eight rank depending on color. The first move of the new pawn is one step forward (when a player uses another move for that) and from second and seventh rank the normal exceptions apply.

   Nov-17-17 Ulf Andersson
Ilkka Salonen: His birthplace Västerås means West ridge. Thank you chessgames. I was just thinking yesterday if it was Västerås or Västeräs.
   Nov-16-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I wonder if it is more true that just got bored with putting the moves online live, or that they were intimidated by legal action. There was this one user called Whyy, who was always commenting, and I suspected he was there to mock for the CIA, but it is hard to ...
   Nov-13-17 Tal vs Uhlmann, 1971 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Would 15. ...Qf6 be any better?
   Nov-07-17 Isle of Man Open (2017)
Ilkka Salonen: Which famous rock song mentions Isle of Man? And I'll answer my own question, it is Happy Jack by the Who. In many ways it is tragic there are now two more american super-GMs besides of Nakamura. The japanese have been neglecting the possibility of tuning in with rest of the ...
   Nov-02-17 European Team Championship (2017) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Finland are ahead of Norway after 5 rounds :) Paistaa se päivä risukasaankin is a saying, which means the sun also shines to pile of relatively small sticks of wood. How come Sweden didn't send a team? One could think they want to support their new top 100 player.
   Oct-24-17 Prince Dadian vs M Bitcham, 1892
Ilkka Salonen: I think it is somewhat intriguing question, to what extent his games were honest. I remind of the famous Lasker line about chess and honesty, and no doubt this guy was a true chess fan. But who knows what was his usual level of honesty in human interaction him being a monarch ...
   Oct-09-17 K Tjolsen vs S Marder, 2010 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Ok, so she employs that strategy to get the Scandinavian player to play badly. I suppose there are many, and some Scandinavian players are really just better players who play that because it is not super bad. But some Scandinavian players you feel kind of even sorry for, and ...
   Sep-18-17 Blackburne vs A Crowley, 1894 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: After reading from Crowley's Confessions his description of Blackburn, for example symptoms of alcoholism, I thought that maybe the maternalny named Beast was unkind on purpose. However, after I later read about an incident or a series of incidents of violence between ...
   Sep-16-17 O Seuss vs H Hurme, 1969 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I'll explain the pun to non finnish speakers. "Voi vainolaisen hurmehella peittää maan" goes the known military tune Porilaisten marssi. There hurme means blood, but it is a word not used often now.
   Sep-13-17 Levon Aronian (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Yeah, ok. I was looking at the board the wrong way. As in g6 is not a legal move, obviously. I am somewhat worried of the possibility of fake chess though, and thus my feeling of embarrassment is mixed with that of relief too.
