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: I think the designation of the 1958 World Student Team Championship as "U26" is basically a lie; other overaged players are also listed as taking part, like Rodolfo Argentino Redolfi (born 1928), Mario Bertok (born 1929) and Milko Bobotsov (born 1931).

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heh, it does look wild. :) Oddly enough, I ran the game through the postmortem engine analysis available at lichess, and the verdict was that I had made 0 blunders, 0 mistakes, and just 1 inaccuracy in this game. I hope this doesn't become a habit! ;s

I don't know if 20.Nd8! is necessarily brilliant, but it's so cheeky it deserves the exclamation mark just for that.

Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: <Switch> oh ohhh, i missed that one..

corrected version:

In round 3, g6 was played in 5 out of 6 games. Pick the number of games that g6 will be played <by black> in round 4.

thanks amigo!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: <Switch> hi! I'm just redecorating 3 rooms on the left here, and thought I'd suggest that - given that the Spispopydians are your characters - if you want them to be anything like you had in mind for them (if you did), it might be a good idea for you to take the next post, even if "out of turn". ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Annie> I do have plenty of things in mind, but the key to writing a story like this is not minding if other people lead things down a completely different track. Ilya and Gudga are my characters too, but you and <twinlark> filled in details like their species and gender :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Yeah, but those were obviously intended-to-be-started-off-blank characters. Given that you have mentioned Sp. in our previous story too, I thought you might have your own ideas for them. So, if you do, now's probably a good time to introduce them properly, because it seems that both twinlark and I have just been dribbling the ball in our last posts, waiting for you to do so, and the plot can't take much more dribbling in good health. ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: For all I know, <twinlark> has a better vision than I do. I certainly hope he does :)

Thanks to me, there are roughly more than 2,309 biological mini-bots somewhere on the ship. I have no idea what they're doing or why.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heheh. You really ought to carry a bit of the load yourself, if you're going to insist on starting these things, yanno. :s

Well then, I sure hope <twinlark> has an idea what to do with them too. ;)

Premium Chessgames Member

if no one loses, wordfunph takes home all the moolah hehehe :)

seriously, of course refund of tickets is necessary, will edit the notes.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: Questionable resignations are always fun... except when it's us resigning :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: Heh, yeah, guess he didn't see Nf4... it's not as intuitive as the (losing) Ng3, since it seems to get the N farther away from the scene of the battle. :)

The perfect solution to avoiding questionable resignations is to never, ever, resign! ;p

Nope - alas, according to the recest chessforum activity, you can't have that either.

  twinlark: <SwitchingQuylthulg>

I'm unsure about where to go next with this story. It runs the risk of meandering around while someone thinks up an endgame for it.

Initially it seemed the two young men were to be devil may care adventurers, but that idea morphed into something different when the clones entered the story, especially the parents and the bit which implied the kids were playing hookey/at home alone.

Kind of tempted to leave it as it is, but maybe you could provide some idea of where you want to take your characters and the story? I've had some ideas, but so has everyone else and we're kind of not really pulling in the same direction.

Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <twinlark> I'm not sure the story has much future at this point; it seems that <Annie> wants to get it over with (and she did say she wouldn't tackle anything more than a short story).

I don't really have that many ideas, and wouldn't object to letting <Annie>'s post be The End (indeed, the more I think about it, the more I feel it's a good idea). But if I had to keep writing and somehow tie up all the loose ends myself, this would likely be the general outline:

• The mini-bots <are> the Spispopyd agents, or at least the closest thing on the ship, and Ilya would have been able to guess that if he hadn't had his mind wiped.

• What they wanted was to find one or more of the coldsleeping clones (who wouldn't put up much resistance) and suck out their souls, by which I mean all the things about them that are not their bodies. Like, um, bank chip and security numbers. One has to earn a living somehow.

• The experimental clones somehow managed to invite the mini-bots despite being in coldsleep. Presumably they must have offered some kind of bait - and offering their <own> clones (who after all have the same bank chip and security numbers as themselves) would not have been a very good idea...

Then, if I'd written this story by myself the very first post would have continued <There was something so wonderfully <relaxing>, so <un-angsty>, so... so <right> about blowing up humans>, so it's not like the story ever followed my vision :) And that's probably just as well.
