|Dec-21-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: HI!!!
#1.) First off, I just wanted to wish you a happy holidays. (Do they celebrate Christmas in China?)
#2.) I removed (un-installed) the "Yahoo Messenger" from my computer.
a.) Many times, I clicked on YM, and my computer froze up. IMO, it was poorly done or badly written.
b.) Over 100 times a night, I would get IM messages. Most of the time, it was all kinds of silliness. (Porn, ads, people trying to sell me something, SPAM, etc.) I got so tired of this nonsense, I simply removed the software from my computer.
However, the chat with your sister was one of the few bright spots in my on-line, IM experience. (FYI)
I.M. = Instant Messaging
|Dec-24-11|| ||twinlark: <Than Phanh> Merry Christmas!|

|Dec-24-11|| ||achieve: Hi <Thanh>!
Almost embarrassed to say that I think this is my first ever visit to your forum; what a blunder!, hehe, but there is a time for everything, and coincidentally my forum may close in a few hours (memb. expiration), but I'll renew in January, prior to Wijk aan Zee (Tata Steel).
I left a response there to your very welcome and thoughtful post, but as it seems now it may only be there for a number of hours for you to read; just to let you know in advance.
So once again here: Best wishes to you and yours over the next days and for 2012! :)

|Jan-18-12|| ||cro777: Hello, Thanh Phan!
This is the final position of the game Giri-Nakamura from the ongoing Tata Steel 2012 tournament.
click for larger view
The endgame is equal and Giri and Nakamura agreed to a draw.
Interestingly, the same position had occurred in the game of two Vietnam's players Tran Anh Tri and Ngo Thanh Tung at the Nam PTTH tournament (Dong Thap 2000).
Their game proceeded 19.Rd4 Kf6 20.Bxe6 fxe6 etc ...and ended in a draw in 29 moves.
Would you please provide us with some information about the tournament and these players.

Some info from the providence http://nhandan.com.vn/cmlink/nhanda... http://english.vietnamnet.vn/sports...
Tran, Anh Tri http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?...
Ngo Thanh Tung http://www.365chess.com/players/Ngo...
|Jan-18-12|| ||cro777: <Than Phan> Thank you for your feedback. I had some of these links. I'm missing Ngo Thanh Tung's personal data and rating.|
BTW, I have observed that in Vietnam there are many talented young players.
|Jan-18-12|| ||Thanh Phan: <cro777> Found the game noted, http://www.365chess.com/view_game.p...|
Not find much of Ngô Thanh Tùng after south high school tournament besides plays from 2000-2004
|Jan-18-12|| ||cro777: <Than Phan> Thanks. I also could not find anything about Ngô Thanh Tùng. At the time of the tournament (in 2000) they were very young players. Tran Anh Tri was 15 years old. |
Nam PTTH = South High School Tournament
Have I understood correctly?
|Jan-18-12|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Offer thanks for that great list of German language sites! Very interesting and helpful.|
If you come across any good chess soundtrack music, please drop it in my forum. I have been collecting a lot of Mussorgsky and Dvorak lately, but looking for new composers and ideas.
|Jan-18-12|| ||Thanh Phan: <cro777> That was my understanding of yes, sometimes the players then continue to educate and move on. |
The government now offers support of chess, enough that if place well in tournaments are able to support self in life.
<jessicafischerqueen> Are welcome, if find more then would send toward your page :) until then take care ~Thanh
