|Sep-17-07|| ||zanshin: <kwgurge> Did you get your Full Analysis on the Team game to work? I posted a question for you on the game board, but you might have missed it. I used 100 s per move and a threshold of 30 but got a pretty poor result. So I did not bother to post, esp. since <RV> posted the definitive analysis.|
|Sep-30-07|| ||mrknightly: <kwgurge>I am familiar with your comments and analysis from the recent Battle of the Brains. So, on that basis can you explain for me the idea behind 10.Qa3 in the GMT game. I think you switched from Bg5 to Qa3. I have been following the game and comments, but the move seems counter-intuitive to me. Thanks for your time and comments.|
|Oct-02-07|| ||kwgurge: <mrknightly> Your forum is not activated for a reply. Somewhere around page 535 to 540 in the GMT game I posted my ideas regarding the reasons behind Qa3.|
|Oct-03-07|| ||mrknightly: Thanks. I saw your comment. Exactly what I was looking for.|
|Oct-03-07|| ||zanshin: <kwgurge: Sorry about the delay in responding to your question on my forum about the Brains game.>|
That's ok .. I figured as much. So much for Fritz and its 'award winning analysis'. I see you've been real busy on the GMT game though. I'm 0-2 in voting for the highly contested moves, but that's team life.

Thanks for your kind and encouraging words, but you know, I'm very calm. We had a great time in the Yury game, but this one is too much like our first, and maybe worse. I think I'll sit this one out. Good luck.

While it's your decision, you will be sorely missed if you go through with this. You've been one of the pillars of the team, and I don't think there's anyone on the team - even <Thorsson> - who wants to see you go.
|Oct-11-07|| ||Elixir of Life: <Artar1> I agree with <whatthefat>. While it is your decision, I hope that you will come back. You were one of our teams core analysts. You will be missed a lot.|
Regarding the lack of bickering in the GMYS game: I'm not being negative, but in my opinion that game was technical and, well, doesn't have much creativity (other than 12...f5). When there is a lack of creative ideas (compared to the GMAN game), there is bound to be less bickering
Bickering and creativity are one package. They come together.

I have a request to make of you all if itís agreeable.
Because of my current workload (Yes, I do have a job, and yes rumors of my homelessness have been greatly exaggerated!) and my wish to help my daughter with her college work (Yes, I would like her to leave home one day; the thought of her still living in her room past 30 is unthinkable!), I will have limited time for the remainder of this game.
But if you have a line you would like me to look at and provide objective data (Well, nearly objective; would you believe highly biased and opinionated?), I would be happy to do so. Just leave a message in my forum, and I will get right on it. If I donít hear from you, that means you got GMT beat so I can completely relax, right?
So let me know what you think. Besides, we do have a decent position, but there is still a lot of chess to be played.
|Oct-30-07|| ||The Chess Express: <Artar1> I hope youíve made the wise decision. I made that decision awhile ago, but then the Fischerandom started. Speaking of which, <kwgurge> I noticed that you havenít signed up for the Fischerandom yet. Itís not too late to join. The game is just getting started. Iím on team black again.|

I'd rather see Thorsson go.

|Apr-22-08|| ||playground player: <kwgurge> "Harder to improve as you get older"--you said a mouthful! I was pretty hot in high school and college, and then I stopped playing for 30 years, only starting up again 2 years ago. I've never studied so hard in my life, as I've been studying chess for the past year or more. And I have no idea whether I'm improving or not! Despite all the studying my best games seem to be almost entirely intuitive: and when the faucet of intuition is turned off, I don't play very well.|
Which is funny, when you think about it. I'm always learning new things, and not having much trouble doing so. Chess seems to be the only thing I just can't get better at. Why should that be?
|Apr-22-08|| ||Robin01: That looks like it was one short game of chess with Pianoplayer.|
|Apr-23-08|| ||playground player: <kwgurge> You hit the nail on the head there, too. It's so frustrating, to play very well for a time and then detour into the valley of blunders.|
I wish I could somehow play a game against myself at 18. One consolation: I can't lose!
|Apr-27-08|| ||benjinathan: <kwgurge> what kind of lawyer are you? I do labour.|
