ChessBookie Game

"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

SwitchingQuylthulg: The Bookie is the law, and the administrators' position on what should happen in cases like this has been stated many times before; it shouldn't come as a big surprise. If you don't like the idea of a ticket with only 2 out of 3 right cashing in, place a few bucks on the ...

SwitchingQuylthulg: The Player Directory is not a "list of most players"; only about 13% of all players in the Chessgames database appear in the Player Directory. lists all players and is ideal for looking up player IDs.

SwitchingQuylthulg: Ukraine did have a tougher schedule than the US, at least in the sense that their opponents scored more total match points. The US won on Oly Sonneborn-Berger mostly because 1) they scored half a game point more and 2) they had a bit of luck with Germany's win at the end.

  brankat: Can't find my old Kitty avatar.Either someone else is using it or else it's been taking out of circulation. So, I settled for the mouse. Suites my temperament even better :-)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: Someone else is using the Jasper avatar; I feel like I should know who it is, but I don't remember. This time, it's not me :)

Good luck with the mouse avatar!

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Thank You Santa!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Too bad <cg> doesn't have an automatic avatar-to-user feature, but if you ask <cg>, they could tell you. They could also give you back your old avatar (well obviously they would make a small adjustment, just in case you run into your, doppelganger). But I'm sure you're happy with your new one. :)

Check out this page though (in case you weren't already aware of it):

Avatar Area

Lists all the avatars and their IDs. Of course, the avatar page lists the avatars in order by ID number. Mine is 637, your old one is 760 (that's what it looked like, right).

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Thanks Penguincw. My old avatar is #760 indeed, but the list doesn't show the current "owner".

  Penguincw: Hi <Switch>. Don't know if you're aware of this <Switch>, but even though the IIHF Junior Championship isn't for a few months (with the World Cup starting next month), there's still the World Junior Summer Showcase:

There doesn't seem to be too much info out there on this event, but Finland just beat Canada 2-1, after the Finns tied it in the 3rd, and won it OT. :(

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Good show Switch!
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <brankat> Thanks :-)

<Penguincw> I noticed that. I was a bit surprised since we'd just been smashed in two games against American teams, but I'm not complaining :)

Neither Finland or Canada is anywhere near full strength, though.

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Hi Switch! How is it going?

I've been getting back in my kibitzing stride lately. Even managed to get in a few arguments :-)

I feel saddened to see that so many of our old friends are not around. Dakkie, Achieve, Malthrope. Ahmadov seems to be neither here, nor there. The same with OD. Don't know about Rich, can't remember his UserName :-)

Worst of all, I haven't been able to locate the Life Master :-)

Angslo (or Quantum something)?

But then, there are quite a few (relatively) new kibitzers, and a few new trolls, SO "fans", a lot of material to work with.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <brankat> I've been less and less interested in Chessgames, partly (but not entirely) because many of my friends don't post here anymore; I'm not even playing the Bookie game seriously this leg.

<malthrope> died last year; I really wish I knew what happened to <dakkie> and whether he's OK, but I have no idea. Knowing he wrote most of Shakespeare, I fear he's stuck in Elizabethan England with no way back to our time; it would be just like him to invent a time machine and not tell us.

<AJ>'s "last seen" data shows he's still visiting Chessgames, but he hasn't posted since the incident a couple years ago when he accused Daniel Freeman of anti-Semitism (Daniel Freeman described this as a "new low" in <AJ>'s career) and was banned from kibitzing. I don't know if he's still muzzled, or no longer muzzled but just not posting; but since AJ doesn't normally do silence, I suspect he's still muzzled.

<angslo>'s last few usernames spent most of their time trolling the Rogoff page; I haven't seen him since July 2015, but it's possible that could be just because I don't spend much time on the Rogoff page.

The new So trolls are mostly reincarnations of old So trolls you may remember from years back :) Even so, this site is in no danger of running out of trolls any time soon. Running out of legitimate posters is likely to happen first.

Good luck, and have fun! :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <Switch> A.J. is muzzled until he apologizes so I think we'll see him back in about 10,000 lifetimes.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <I really wish I knew what happened to <dakkie>>

Not sure what prompted it, but I had a look a couple weeks ago.

<<AJ>'s "last seen" data shows he's still visiting Chessgames>

And I thought I was the only person who looked at such things. FWIW, I am a bit surprised he doesn't log out and visit anonymously.

Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Not sure what prompted it, but I had a look a couple weeks ago.>

Did you find anything?

<FWIW, I am a bit surprised he doesn't log out and visit anonymously.>

His ignore list is probably less full these days, so he doesn't need to :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <Did you find anything? >

Nope, just the typical stuff of looking at the last few posts to see if there was any mention of an upcoming absence from the site and nothing was indicated.

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Thank You.

I'm very sorry to hear about <malthrope>'s passing.

As for AJ I had a feeling he may have been banned.

I have not visited Rogoff page in a few years. It would require too much work.

You don't have to play the Bookie game seriously, having won most of the legs already. Your membership must be covered for the next 20 years :-)
