ChessBookie Game

Glorious winner of one third of the 7th Annual Caissar Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Username Selection (and that's official...)

"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: <WannaBe: If my memory serves, the difficulty of the puzzle does not correlate with the prize's value... (Now watch as someone corrects me, like <Dom> or <Switch> =))> In general, more difficult klus are more likely to give "big" prizes, though there ...

SwitchingQuylthulg: <dakkie> Good luck for today's games! Both the London ones and the klu ones :) Pity about klu #19; at least you were doing the right things. Unlike some people.

SwitchingQuylthulg: <cg> There's a problem - I couldn't claim the prize for klu #2 because I had supposedly already hit the five prize limit. I'm not <that> good :) I remember <Domdaniel> had the same problem in 2009 when he couldn't claim the prize for klu #9. I had to log

  SwitchingQuylthulg: I haven't seen many, either. So I don't really know how long people took to solve them :)

Good luck for today's games!

  Domdaniel: <Switch> Well done in tackling the Wiz. I got just about far enough into it to determine that it was right up your street.
Dec-15-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> <Domdaniel> Thanks, and good luck for the remaining klus! :)
Dec-15-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Ackshly, I suspected that the Wiz klu might conceal the grand prize... for which you may be holding yourself, as it were, in check.

So far today, my timing is better -- I saw the last three klus while they were live. Not that it helped, but it's more enjoyable than missing them completely.

  Domdaniel: Oy, make that four klus. I was still wondering about 'schooners' and 'horse cons' when you got it.

Sizzling stuff, old chap.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Domdaniel> <Nuklu> Thanks again :)

The Wizard klu looked more complicated than it actually was. So easy to get sidetracked trying to decode the letters and find a secret message that wasn't there :-)

  dakgootje: I almost had that one actually.

I'd found the 2 different solutions - and at a different moment found that one of the solutions spelled Ramme.

So I'd tried the 3 games of Christoph Ramme with no luck.

Guess I should've put both ideas together, but then again, I tried half a dozen other ideas as well. That's my third near-hit this year ;D

  dakgootje: Wait, did you actually hit your fifth one with clue-25?

Nice job in any case :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Just the fourth... :s
I can't understand this delay... ;p
Dec-15-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: Wrong time zone. I can't grab klus while sleeping... maybe I should work on that :)

In 2012, when I reached five by klu #16, I was in a lucky time zone and got to have a crack at most of the early klus. This year the opposite has been the case - to put it mildly.
