I take note of your point about Morroccan fruit being held to lower standards. Giant Foods has carried both Spanish and Morroccan clementines in recent years, the latter usually starting in January and later. Usually, both are delicious. I think that Giant is a reputable outfit and they would take care that their label means what it says. In any case, if there are serious doubts about the source, I think that consumer watchdogs would raise the issue loudly and clearly.
<Similarly, avoid some Italian "products",....>
This is interesting, something I was not aware of. I am a regular consumer of olive oil.
<Thank you, I wish you the same for you and your family and a good New Year.>
Thanks, Happy New Year to you, too.
|Feb-03-12|| ||Patriot: <agb2002> <Hello Patriot, how is the new year treating you? Hope everything is ok with you and your family.> My apologies for not responding to you sooner! I really thought I had responded back and just noticed I haven't!|
Everything is going well with me and my family. I appreciate you asking and I hope all is well with you! Keep up the amazing work on the puzzles! Take care.
|Apr-10-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hola, <Antonio>.
Thanks for "dropping by". I hope you and your family are well.
I looked at the reviews of Penrose's "The Road to Reality", which I have not read, and I am daunted. Do I want to spend the time and effort required to understand the book?
I therefore turn your question back to you: what did you think of the book?
Be judicious in your answer, please ;>)
All the best,
|Apr-12-12|| ||johnlspouge: Hi, Antonio.
Your review link http://www.ams.org/notices/200606/r... was good enough. The book is a must-read. I will let you know how it goes.
Thanks for thinking of me :)
All the best,
|Apr-15-12|| ||quantum.conscious: hi <antonio> , thanks for your posts about roger penrose books. i found them very interesting.|

Thank you! It seems that the interest on Penrose's Road is skyrocketing: I can count three now which means a tremendous increase of 50%! ;-)

|Jun-11-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <agb2002> Hi! I'm sending you this note to firstly thank you for your kind and objective acknowledgment on M Beinoras vs H Salo, 2009. I made sure to post my original thank you there!|
I had a fellow CG full member, <AlienMath> post a question on High-Mathematics on my forum that I cannot assist on elucidating on, due to the fact that I am not a trained Mathematician.
The question is located directly on this link LoveThatJoker chessforum.
Any help on the elucidation of the concepts of both the Goldberg conjecture and the Riemann hypothesis would be genuinely appreciated.
|Jun-12-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <agb2002> Thank you for the kind reply on my forum!|
|Jun-14-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <agb2002> Do you have any idea who this is?|
Look at Book 3 here http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp....
I will give you anyone you want in exchange for this one.
|Jun-15-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <agb2002> Thank you for getting back to me on that!|
|Jul-22-12|| ||Patriot: Hi <agb2002>! <I agree. I still have to rethink my move selection algorithm.> Usually you latch right on to the correct move. Do you consider other candidates or do you usually only post the principle candidate after analysis? For example in today's puzzle, I thought 22.Bh6 was a good candidate and 22.Nb5 was interesting, although I didn't post anything about it initially. 22.Rxf6 was the first move I saw but I didn't see the Kh1, Rg1 idea and thought it was unnecessarily complicated.|
By the way, good job on the POTD!
|Oct-01-12|| ||morfishine: Hello <abg2002>! Nice write-up in the Sunday POTD! I only noticed <25...Bxe4> immediately after posting 25.Rxb4 <25...axb4>. I briefly considered deleting my post then adding this as a possible improvement but decided to leave these separate. |
I'm a bit surprised there wasn't more discussion on <25...Bxe4>
|Nov-14-12|| ||Patriot: Hi <agb2002>! Good job on your win! I read your comment about losing the exchange before going over your game so when you played 20.Rae1 I figured the rook on f1 was going to be *the* piece. I've lost the exchange quite a few times like this so I'm very suspicious about moves that trap the rook.|
I had a question about 11.Nxe7+. What prompted you to play this? That knight is a real thorn thanks to 9...b6?. I wouldn't recommend trading it until forced to do so since the bishop isn't going anywhere. That's similar to what Dan told me once when I captured a pinned piece. He said "You should almost never capture unless they threaten to break the pin or capture the pinning piece, for example." By not capturing, you have time to build your position further while he is left dealing with the situation.
It really looks like you did have a bad day though--we all have them! I just thought I'd mention the knight capture though because that move really stood out with me. But it's probably something you wouldn't have done on any other day!
Thanks for sharing!

|Jan-18-13|| ||Patriot: Hi <agb2002>! I loaded your game into Fritz and followed it. You played a nice game against Houdini! On move 35 (white to play), how did you evaluate the position:|

I might think black is a little better, and Houdini agrees after 22-ply. You said 35.Bf1 was better but at 22-ply, it agrees with you! <35.Ba6>
|Jan-19-13|| ||Patriot: Hi <agb2002>! <Perhaps the note below the players showing the engine which performed the analysis misled you.> Yes this is exactly what happened--I completely misread that (sorry).|
Your plan, having the outside passed pawn, is a good one. Nice game!
|Mar-03-13|| ||Jimfromprovidence: Thanks for the constructive feedback concerning Saturday's puzzle.|
|Nov-01-13|| ||Patriot: <<agb2002>: <Patriot: <agb2002> <Pattern recognition finds the mate scheme...Therefore...> If the pattern led you to the sequence, I'm impressed. I had to work out a sequence before visualizing the position as a win.>
You surely have already noticed that in competition chess you never have enough 'stored' patterns.> Oh definitely! I don't doubt that you solved it this way, but it struck me oddly because I have listened to NM Dan Heisman analyze <CG> problems that I gave him, "live". And I'm quite certain he would not have worked backwards from the pattern you illustrated. And I don't think, even knowing the pattern, I would ever be able to link the pattern to the problem and solve it backwards. That's one heck of a skill!|
|Nov-03-13|| ||agb2002: <Patriot>
Thank you! The way you describe the solving process reminds me of Raymond Smullyan logic puzzles in his "The Chess Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes".
|Dec-04-13|| ||LoveThatJoker: <Dear CG Friends>
I know this is irregular, but I am stepping outside of the box, for you to view truly one of the most exciting alternate solutions ever posted on the daily puzzle:
G Weissgerber vs A Van Nuess, 1933
With friendship, respect and gratitude for your time in looking at this,
|Mar-05-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Hello:
Game Collection: "Chess-Games" >Problem of The Day< (2014)
I am trying to update a collection ... with all the puzzle for this year.
Have you missed any days this year ... that you know of? If so, could you help me to locate the missing days?
|Mar-06-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: << Hello LMAJ, according to CG I have posted (or perpetrated) an analysis every day this year with the sole exception of Feb 17th (I don't remember what happened that day). If I can help you just let me know. >> |
Cool! Then I will be looking through your posts and trying to update my collection. (I am glad that you don't mind.)
Think you could ask any of your friends and find out what the POTD for Feb. 17th was? (Ask them to leave a comment in my forum.)
|Mar-08-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: S Williams vs The World, 2013|
Weren't you a big-time member of the team?
|Jun-21-14|| ||Patriot: <agb2002> Thanks! I haven't been logging onto the site much recently--it's been about a week since the last time. I seem to be pulling away from chess more and more these days but that's how things go sometimes. Take care.|
