I enjoy teaching chess, especially to children. I enjoy a longer game of chess better than blitz. I play both OTB and correspondence chess.

Longest OTB game I ever played was 204 moves for 7 hours and 45 minutes. Full Member

Robin01: How about 3.75 points for a win, 1.45 points for a loss, and 2.35 points for a draw, and that way we can get the math people more interested in the game also!:)
   Jun-25-15 Topalov vs Anand, 2015 (replies)
Robin01: I wonder why Anand would play an opening with such a high level of draws, considering he needs to win to clinch the tournament.

Robin01: RIP, GM Walter Browne.
   Jun-24-15 A Giri vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
Robin01: Looks like Giri is more familiar with this opening than Topalov given the large time difference in the opening.

Robin01: Round 8: Grischuk - Caruana 1/2 36 Giri - Topalov 1/2 37 Anand - Hammer 1-0 37 Carlsen - Aronian 1-0 47 Nakamura - Vachier-Lagrave 1-0 45
   Jun-23-15 Topalov vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
Robin01: I am not really sure what opening this is, however, it is symmetrical in nature.
   Jun-18-15 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
Robin01: <13...Rxc2!? and takes e4 was interesting>Does that just not lose a lot of material for black?

Robin01: <WinKing>Thanks.

Robin01: My predictions redone. I accidently left Manedyarov in twice instead of Anand. Sorry about that. Games are stilling going, I believe, and it is early in the tournament, but if it is too late now, then that is the way it is. 1. Carlsen 2. Caruana 3. So 4/5. Kramnik ...

  Golden Executive: Hi <Robin01>: You have Mamedyarov twice and Anand is missing at your predictions in <lostemperor>īs contest.

I hope you can read this before the tournament begins.

  WinKing: Hi <Robin01>! Just wanted to say congratulations on your Gold medal in the 'Pair Betting Ranker' at <lostemperor>'s contest. I was updating the Hall of Fame medal count in my forum & noticed that you are now a member of the 'Hat Trick Club'. Only 15 members at chessgames belong to this 'elite' group. To belong you have to have at least one gold in all three(<lostemperor, YouRang & chessmoron>) of the contests. :)
