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: <MostlyAverageJoe> And you still didn't become the first player to win six prizes this year - <7krzem7> beat you to it, with his extra prize from klu #35 :)

Whatever the problem was, <cg> fixed it after klu #61; I got the error message when I tried to claim klu #62.

<Penguincw> I'm not sure. I think <Annie> has a great big plan with me down to do the 2016–17 Winter Leg, but I don't know if I'll want to host that leg or any other leg for that matter. Outside the Klu Hunt I've been less and less involved in Chessgames activities, even the Bookie game, and my motivation has dropped accordingly; right now I feel like I could do it, but that could change really fast now the hunt is over and the tedium of the other eleven and a half months sets in again.

<everybody> Thanks, and have fun! :-)

  Annie K.: <Switch> it's not a plan until you confirm it, and I haven't even gotten around to asking you yet... ;)

However, it turns out you can't advance to 2016 until you <Escape 2015> (by Tomatea)! :)

  MostlyAverageJoe: < SwitchingQuylthulg: <MostlyAverageJoe> And you still didn't become the first player to win six prizes this year>

Well, I neither expected, nor wanted to grab six of them. What I really wanted after getting the first two this year, was to break Aphasia's record for snagging all five over the span of 12 klus, established in the 2007 Chessgames Present Hunt Clues Page (klus 21, 23, 25, 31, 32). If only I was not traveling when the Dijkstra klu came online...

Dec-26-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <MostlyAverageJoe> Solving five of seven consecutive klus would certainly have been quite a feat! Mind you, the Dijkstra klu was only up for a minute or two; if you only refreshed the klu page every five minutes you'd have needed some luck.

<Annie> In public, you're supposed to give the impression that Daniel's the one who decides who's Bookie :s

<However, it turns out you can't advance to 2016 until you <Escape 2015> (by Tomatea)! :)>

Excellent! Now I can prolong 2015 indefinitely, and hopefully live forever.

Or I can play the TomaTea game. I'll have to think about this.

  Annie K.: Because he has nothing better to do than chase volunteers and worry about organizing their shifts? ;s

  Annie K.: <WinKing> for a good score in this leg, or for running the next? ;)

Don't worry, it's not very hard. :) There's also a good help file written up for formatting/html tricks, and if you have any questions, you can always ask, not only Daniel, but me and/or <Switch> too. Or both, in which case you will probably get contrasting opinions! ;s

<Switch> btw, I have a new favorite game developer, Andrey - not sure if you'll like his style, but you can give him a try: http://umarooma.com/aniwomen-part-1/

This is the first part of a series, he's already up to part 16. Not difficult, but pretty and fun. :)

Let's see... good graphics, cute anime girls, pixel hunting, super-easy puzzles... I think that would be a "no", unless the later games are quite unlike the first two. But thanks for the tip :) I did like the TomaTea game.

Good luck for the Winter Leg! So far, no player who's been Bookie more than once has ever placed lower than first, so history is squarely on your side.

  Annie K.: Thanks - yeah, if you spin the stats phrasing just right, I'm practically guaranteed to win this, except that you'll be playing too, and I'm sure there's some new record just waiting to be set up... ;s

Heh. Well, Andrey's games continue with the same theme, though the girls do get cuter - I just play them for the pwetty pics. :D That's certainly a pixel-hunting game, but on the upside, finding all the letters is not actually a requirement, as long as you can figure out what the girls are saying, so you can finish the games without a few of the hardest-to-find letters too. :)

We can tie for first, setting a new record for the smallest margin between the top two players.
