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.

micartouse: Proud to be a p. 2 Rogoffer, although I no longer agree with the 2nd part of my comment back then. That same page, a poster rhetorically asked what regulation was coming down the pike by saying: <(And what rough beast its hour come round at last, Slouches toward Bethlehem to ...

micartouse: <al wazir> Yes, well done. I was picturing things like kellmano's post and setting up various contraptions with weights or water but just couldn't make progress. <OCF> Agree, I enjoy reading a diverse puzzle set from many posters, even if I only dip my toes in the ...

micartouse: I like Seirawan's commentary lately. It seems like he used to hold back, and now he has loosened up more and just says what lines he's really thinking.

micartouse: One of the best recorded songs I've heard. <Be my Baby> by the Ronettes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qzhb... An example of why production was better before the digital revolution.
 
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
micartouse: < Silvio Danailov @SilvioDanailov Nov 11 If @MagnusCarlsen wants to enter in theoretical battles he needs much better seconds than @PHChess. Losing clearly the opening duel so far> He should have learned by now that having Chep sit around on the laptop all day finding ...
 
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
micartouse: There was a lot of talk about Anand's age this event, as if they dragged him out of the nursing home to play this. All nonsense - in the states he would still have to wait 2 decades for Social Security checks. Same goes for any talk that Carlsen was trying to exploit Anand's age ...

micartouse: <IndianFan: ... is a reasonable a priori guess about someone you run into at an English language site.> Or just a gratuitous mistake, take your pick.

micartouse: <optimal play: If you want to score another win then you're the one who is going to have to take the risk, I'm not giving any opportunity!> Sure, perhaps even a step beyond that: Many of the top grandmasters think that it's dangerous to push Black too hard in the Berlin ...
