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: <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.

SwitchingQuylthulg: Sorry, you'll need to ask Daniel Freeman about the Leuven blitz bets; he was supposed to sort them out long ago, and I have no idea what's caused the delay. Last I heard, <Annie> was going to prod him; apparently that didn't help.

  Penguincw: Hmm, I see the idea of moving the knight, perhaps exchanging the queen and winning the black knight or a8 rook, but trying to find the right move order. I'm also looking for a combination that doesn't exchange 2 minor pieces for a rook, which isn't all that great.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Penguincw> You have the right idea, but the one move that makes it work isn't easy to spot :)

Here's another puzzle... probably easier, but still not trivial.

Black to move

  eternaloptimist: Hey <Switch>, How's it going? I just wanted to inform u that the betting on the Carlsen-So game in rd 8 didn't close until after the game was already over w/. I noticed that some ppl even placed their bets after the game was over w/. B/c of this, the bets on Carlsen placed after the game started shouldn't count. Is there any way that u can detect when the bets were placed? U can delete this kibitz after u see it if u want. I hope u r doing well. Thx!

Black to play...

The solutions to the previous puzzles:

<1.Rac1!> and White wins material; if 1...Rac8 2.Rxc6 Rxc6 3.Ne7+; 1...Qxe3 2.Nxe3 and the knight on c6 is pinned; 1...Na5 2.Ne7+ and a8 drops.

<1...Re3!> and Black wins; 2. fxe3 Qf3+ 3.Ke1 Qxe3+ 4.Kf1 Qf3+! 5.Ke1 Qxc3+ and White is dead.

  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 :-)

  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!

  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).

  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:

http://www.tsn.ca/world-junior-summ...

https://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/n...

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. :(
