Hi! I am a 36 year old chess player from Michigan, USA. I am an average player (USCF 1600-1700). I like chess, guitar, reading, and many other things.

<Until now, you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. (John 16:24)> :)

micartouse: Wars are a form of what used to be called pork barrel spending. They benefit a small number of corporations who give political donations. The reason all the other corporations in other sectors don't retaliate is that they aren't usually adversely affected by the wars. If their ...

   Mar-11-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
micartouse: As is often the case before a big chess event, I will be without internet for a couple months starting today. Hurts to watch RedShield's countdown, but I know all of the contributions I'd be making to the kibitzing such as superstitious speculation, giving advice to legendary ...

micartouse: <visayanbraindoctor: Perhaps it's mainly to rest himself so as not to get a flare up of his arthritis right in the middle of the Candidates; maybe to prep the Kasparov way; or both.> Or a third possibility to follow through with one of the earlier thoughts in your post, he ...

micartouse: <RedShield> You don't think Shirov had a good excuse for emotions running high and talking a little trash? I think he more than paid for it.

micartouse: <keypusher: The reason we have to look at matches that were played a decade or so ago, of course, is that top human GMs won't play matches against engines any more. At least not in public.> Exactly. And not necessarily because they're embarrassed - there just isn't a point ...

micartouse: OK I think for the next year question, it's 2133. We can't make a month less than 12, and it has too many days.

micartouse: A chess website just seems like the only possible place a poster could be outed for being a female.
   Jan-23-14 Tata Steel (2014) (replies)
micartouse: Good to see Aronian bucking up, demonstrating his legendary stature. What he's doing here is amazing but nothing he hasn't been doing for years already. Winning tournaments is in his blood. But when the stakes are high, he has previously been blocked by gatekeepers like Gelfand, ...
   Jan-22-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
micartouse: I think Kasparov's comments after Game 6 of the Anand-Gelfand match in 2012 reflect his judgment when it comes to chess politics. Given that many fans could never forget such antics, he has voluntarily imposed an upper boundary on the support he can expect to receive from the ...
