"Play the board AND the man ! ".
But mostly the board.
Was born in Elsinore,Denmark,1953.And I am still proud of it.As I hope everyone is proud of hers/his startingpoint.

In many aspects life and chess do mirror each other IM experience.As science and belief goes hand in hand.So many "rules of thumbs" and many "exceptions" from the rule. I do agree with Bent Larsen who once said that someone who cannot contain a paradoxe is not using the full capacity of his brain.Actually I am convinced that there are no parodoxes,but perspectives which are more bright or flexible than others...

Though some obviously are borned under more easygoing circumstances than others,I will second our esteemed fellowkibitzer <zarg> who underlines that "luck" is also somehing that we create ourselves. Ourselves,but also together IM experience.
I try to live my life as if Jesus or Buddha knocked on the door , I would wellcome them as friends . And if they didn´t show up, it would be fine anyway.

  moronovich: Good afternoon <virginmind> !

<virginmind: Hello and here we go into the last round...who would have thought that we will have such finish with tangible chances for quite a few players to finish first>

Yup,things are really heating up.3 players(Ding only has around 1% chance) in the running,where almost anything can happen...Will the coldblooded and stubborn russian finally deliver Ding his first defeat ? Will Caruana play it safe vs the perhaps demoralized Grischuk and will Kramnik come with blazing guns like in all the other games he has had ?

Later today we will have the new challenger and this fantastic tournament is over.It has been a pleasure to watch and witness and perhaps I gonna miss the fine company of Svidler and Gustafsson.Everyday they entertain and are giving masterclasses
in their own way.

Till then: Let us enjoy !

And I hope it will be Caruana who IMHO
is the one who plays the most interesting chess,at least compared to Karjakin.Shak is not strong enough to match Carlsen I guess,but nevertheless I like him and his playing style.

All the best!

Mar-27-18  virginmind: Right, it's not Grischuk (who yesterday wasted his chances for challenging Carlsen) but Ding Liren who might get up there if everything goes his way today.
Mar-27-18  virginmind: So Fab is as close as it gets to getting up there, to the utmost series of games, those for the throne! Good for him! Good guy. It's good for chess, we have diversity. It's so great times for chess! So much fun! Bravo!

Of course, a draw will suffice. He won't lose. And he's gonna meet Carlsen. Great!

Mar-28-18  virginmind: Congratulations to the well deserved winner of the Candidates tournament in Berlin, Fabiano Caruana! And he will soon meet Magnus Carlsen in Grenke! Get ready...

  moronovich: Goos afternoon !

Here is quite and fine.Enjoying easter and the rather silent and calm road outside with significantly less traffic.

Also this kind of calmeness after such a great tournament we jusy have witnessed. With a winner almost the entire chessworld is looking forward to enter the ring vs the reining champ.A guy who could give Magnus a hell of a resistance ;) I think that Caruana is able to raise his level a bit and that Magnus feel this as a more interesting challenge than the Karjakin match.. Are you shure we can wait until November ?? ;)

Hope all is well on your part andd you do enjoy the easter time !

See you up the road.

p.s. it is still cold and a bit windy with occasional snowflakes comming down.But in the end spring will get the upperhand.It always does :)

Mar-29-18  virginmind: Good evening! It's not Easter here this weekend, we're Orthodox, not Catholics! :) So one week more to go... It's true that last year (or was it 2 years ago?) the Easter coincided in the two religious worlds.

Yup, we surely hope Caruana will prepare well and strengthen even more his abilities for the autumn encounter.

Minus 1 this morning, but finaly plus 10 at noon! And the weekend will bring even warmer hours. There's no way you could be late anymore, spring!

Good bye.

  moronovich: Hey!

At the Danish championship in chess-quite another level than our usual fellows,but interesting to see my old friends how they are doing.

Sun has been out today with a lot of warmth.By far the hottest(?) day of the year.Which we celibrated with coffee and cakes at the lakeside.A wonderful experience.

Right now wife is texting with a romanian colleque,as I am with you :)

All is well and I send you my best wishes!

And soon Grenke Classic will appear...

Apr-03-18  virginmind: Heya! Very interesting times chess-wise, now also with this Vincent Keymer coming up, if he will confirm his extremely promising play! Of course following (a bit) Grenke, and also enjoying the rise in temperatures outside. Oh and have (third day today, so I'm not late:) a great Easter you two!

Enjoy spring!

Apr-03-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Heya to you too!

Very interesting with this Vincent Keymer indeed.Must be one hell of a talent and I dont recall having seen such a performance in such an early age.This is a player to follow!

Meanwhile Grenke is on and the hard tested gambleer is for the moment enjoying a (well deserved break ;) before the final 6 rounds.

Have had a fine easter with a nice old body and visit from good friends as well as seeing friends in town, to where I am going now-the weekly rendezvous with good old KJ.

Nice talking to you.Enjoy and take care and see you around !

Apr-11-18  virginmind: Hi <moronovich>, how time passes by...Caruana won Grenke, so he's really getting better, apparently, I'm sure Carlsen is going to follow his games very closely. It's going to be a great clash in Nov. Oh, and I've won a gold medal in one of the sections for result prediction contest ;)

Warm here and no rain so far, which is good. Haven't started repairs for that problem I was telling you about. A one month period with more sustained professional work is about to begin for me.

I feel fine, mostly. Played a few chess games and managed to save two of them, gonna send them to you later. Solved a few puzzles too on playchess server, but still remained with same rank - right in the middle.

Cheers!

  moronovich: Gooe evening!

Just before dinner.
Have had some relatively fine days and enjoys the spring,which seems here to stay:) Was with JWH thirsday and again it was a wonderfull time.Yes,I know i repeat myself but good friendship can not be worshipped enough...

And Grenke is over with one more confirmation of Caruanas qualities as a very interesting challenger.And he occurs to me as a person who likes a challenge---but so does Magnus and we may have a hell of a match ahead.At least that is what we can dream about before it starts :) Such a likeable person too,he seems to be.With a very interesting aproach to the opeening phase in contrast to Karjakin.

Yes, time it flies.All whom I have met from say 50 and more says the same. Every week we say,Hannah and yours truly:How the h...,it is weekend again. But when I woke every morning I feel it is a rather long journey ahead,so it is not speed all of it.

Glad to hear you mostly feel fine:Keep it that way s.v.p. :)

So once again:All the best wishes for the remaining part of the dear weekend and see you up the road!

Au revoir.

Apr-20-18  virginmind: Hi! Shamkir going on already and I've missed the result prediction contest. Followed a bit Carlsen-Navara conference and, again, at one point Magnus was close to a borderline offensive perception for his attitude, I mean, I do agree that that (repeated) question of Ljubojevich was boring, still Magnus could use some degree of politeness. Anyway, we sort of got used to such behaviour of him from time to time, some may perceive it worse than others, nothing can be done - let's just enjoy chess and be glad we're (still) young and relatively healthy. At least young in spirit, aren't we, <moronovich>...and if, as they say, if one feels young then he/she is so, than life's (again) beautiful :)

Or am I wrong? Maybe not. Who can know for sure? But do we really need certainty on this subject? Or it's not even a subject? Oops, I'm getting closer to a Ljubojevich-type of questioning...Juust joking.

So what's new (other than Shamkir)? Any friendly meeting over a couple of pints? Wait, that shouldn't be new anyway ;) A brunch on the seaside given the (hopefuly) good weather at your place? Speaking of which, we're about to end the 3rd week of great weather in Iasi, with no trace of rain. Just great! But you see, there's no seaside close to my place, no mountains either, so...but hey, let's not be too demanding, one can not have everything! :)

Until next, have a great start of weekend. Hugs.

Apr-22-18  virginmind: No show at the press conference for Magnus yesterday, I guess he wanted to avoid some more humanity-saving type interogation by the commentator. Poor Ljubojevich, he just wanted to add some diversity to the chess-oriented daily conferences, but he ended up being derided. Jokingly so, of course, by the mighty champion, but still. Well, Magnus was understandably tired and not being in the mood to participate in such 'poll', then again Navara was too, and he did answer, extensively.

So yesterday Magnus has decided to cut short any chance for such stance of his occuring again, simply passing the press conference. (Some) world champions can do what they feel like, and get away with it. Look at Fischer!...

  moronovich: Hola !

Just briefly-going to the seaside with wife ! :) And thanks for asking.

KJ the other day and it is a delight to experienc how fine his relation with a new woman works out.

Here the spring is on and it is almost summer.Too much to my taste as you know,but I am happy on behalf of my fellow citizens.

Yes,strange but not totally unexpected reaction from Magnus...As the questions from Ljubojevic were very relevant IMO.But not so bad today,were he came across as more cooperative.But still close to a teenager than a grown up.

And thanks a lot for your last post.
I do find it as a very important point,that to some extent we are as aged as we feel.Otherwise there would not be much of a point in trying to maintain/improve our physical/psychological.And we can do a lot.E.g. trying to feel gratitude.As a fine flower we can water everyday.

Do you sometimes miss the mountains and or seaside,as they are not situated were you live ?

I would feel amputated if there wasnt any water inside close range:)

Time for coffee and the finish in Shamkir later.

Take care and see you around !

Good point !

No I think the whole trick,often is that we dont have to be shure.

May-02-18  virginmind: Hi <moronovich>, long time no see, I'm still around but strive to finish some work related writing. Magnus won in Shamkir, I know, good for him, and Ding Liren is slightly showing his strength and rising, who knows what future will bring about...

Too warm here for all month of April with almost no rain, and it continues, kind of strange. I'm fine or sort of, but can't complain.

Yes, mountains are far away from here, seaside even farther. Fortunately in 2 weeks we're going to Ligurian coast and so we'll be able to breathe the sea breeze for 10 days, can't wait :)

No other news here, what about you? Cheers.

  moronovich: Good evening dear <virginmind> !

Nice to see you in da house again!

Here it is also warm temperatures,but not as high as in Iasi.Friends and foes are enjoying the spring after the long winter.Me too,till a certain extent,but looking forward to autum and winter,which,strange at it may seem,suits my condition,dizziness and an irregular colon, better... Hopefully the heat in your place will be more pleasant!?

4 chess tournamensts in a row are now over.And it gonna be fine with a break,nést pas!?...But Carlsen and Caruana definately showing their strenght and November looks more and more promising :)

That sounds great with your trip to the Ligurian Coast,about one week from now................The sea is waiting for you!

Things are ok here and have had some fine moments with friends and not to forget my lovely wife.Woman who have 2 A´s in their family name have to be nursed and appreciated:) So the daily life is the star of the show and that is not bad after all.

Say hello to Maria s.v.p and may you both have an enjoyable weekend.

Au revoir !

ps. conquered a big headache today-makes me so proud and it was an immense relief,as you are the first to know.

  ChessHigherCat: Hi Moronovich, I hope you're having a good time. I have a dumb off-topic question for you: As you may know, "Homeric Greek" was supposed to have "pitch accents" (like a tonal language) instead of "stress accents". Anyway, tell me if you think this passage sounds like Swedish or not. I don't know Swedish but it reminds me of a Bergman movie (except it sounds like the narrator is speaking from the bottom of a well):

  moronovich: Good morning <ChessHigherCat> !s,I am having a fine time,thank you.wife is away for a birthdayparty so all the house is mine ;)

Hope you are enjoying your self,as well!

Just heard the the piece,and I think,like you,there could be a certain Bergmann ring to it.With all its grave seriousnes,but beside from that it is not swedish to me.Swedish is more kind of singing the words.And perhaps it could be described as more fluent compared with the Greek having more staccato.

Hope you will have a nice weekend,and feel free to drop by anytime!

Cheers.

May-05-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: Well I hope you made good use of the house and there are still a few bricks left :-) Maybe that narrator was really Swedish because I listened to some other versions and they're all very different. Here's a very trippy version recited by the ghost of Jimmy Hendrix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOv...

When I saw you had an elo of 2316 and I thought you were probably one of the top players in Denmark but then when I looked at the list (http://ratings.fide.com/topfed.phtm...) I saw the country has an incredible number of strong players (75% of the adult population?). Anyway, it's quite an achievement.

May-09-18  virginmind: Hello, today I've finished the second paper and also started the day in good mood recording my 37th musical snippet :)

Mostly cloudy with some showers but still warm. That's all right with me, provided rain will stay clear as much as possible of the Ligurian coast in the next two weeks.

Little chess online, some won some lost, just like in life :), almost no puzzle solving.

Health should be okay, still some recurring strange feeling lately around the belly button coupled with a lack of taste. Could be the age.

About to make a visit to the dentist with Maria, and then we should continue watching "La dolce vita" we've started last night.

Have a great end of Wednesday!

  moronovich: Good evening dear <virginmind> !

Well,its been a while...not so much happening in he meantime,but still life is great exploring;)Was with JWH the other day and it strikes me how much it means to me.Feel almost young again and being rejuvenated when I sit in the bus,going back to home.

Otherwise we are influenced by the situation of Hannahs best friend who is in the terminal phase.The cancer has spread to her liver and brain... We try to help her as much as possible,but it is difficult and there gonna be a big empty chair in Hannahs life when she is no longer with us.

Besides from that, we try to enjoy the summer spring and do some gardening.E.g. painting a cabin and cutting some bushes.....We also have a minor heathwawe as many other countries in Europe.And you? Is it this weekend you were going to see the Ligurian Coast ? Hopefully you will get a pleasant trip !

Now time for soupper.Chicken with baked potatoes and a huge salat.At least it sounds healthy ;)

See you around and please give hugs to Maria.
