|Oct-24-09|| ||NakoSonorense: Good game! Thanks for playing and the invite to your tournament.|
I hated your 12.e5. After that, I didn't think I was going to last much longer. I didn't want to take my knight back to g8, but I had no other option. However, I was very relieved when you played 16.exd6. That let me bring my knight out and then place it on d5, which was pretty good for me, I think.
Anyway, I've got to admit that I did a lot better in this tournament than I expected. I finished with 10.5/16, but I was given away 2 points when <madbishop> forfeited on time on the very first move.
Thanks everyone for playing and I hope to face you again later on. Just not you, <Open Defence> You're too good for me! =(
|Oct-24-09|| ||radu stancu: Good point about exd6. So I guess this time the problem was not the bishop, it was the pawn that went to the wrong file. Letting it on e5 would have made black's life much harder.|
|Oct-24-09|| ||Open Defence: <Just not you, <Open Defence> You're too good for me! =(> I thought our game was the most interesting (the closed one)|
anyway it looks like I am headed for my first loss at gameknot :(
unless I can weasel out of it like I did against Jammic
|Jan-18-10|| ||radu stancu: <radus> - <keypusher> 1/2|
It was a 78 moves battle in an <Alekhine's Defense, Modern (B05)>. I won a pawn and had an interesting attack but then I squandered my chances and then keypusher managed to even win my bishop, so I had to defend a rook+pawn vs rook+knight+pawn endgame, which thankfully I did. :) I look forward to analyzing the game.
|Jun-22-10|| ||radu stancu: <weaponofchoice> - <radus> 1-0|
An interesting King's Indian in which my all-in king-side attack was stopped by a white queen incursion. I wonder what would have happened had I not allowed the white queen to breach my defenses.
|Jun-22-10|| ||Open Defence: <radu> you had me on the ropes there, my Q side push was too slow (how many times we 1.d4 players get sucked into that KID trap!) but then I think somewhere you made a slip and I had a valuable tempo to secure my second rank (defending g2) from when on my q side push became lethal..|
|Jun-22-10|| ||radu stancu: <Open Defence> Thanks, well played from your part too. :) I will definitely try this line again. I'm having a lot of fun with the King's Indian lately, although I'm having my share of losses with it.|
|Jun-25-10|| ||radu stancu: <keypusher> - <radus> 1-0|
And with that the tournament is completed. Thank you all for participating, and congratulations to <Open Defence> for a flawless victory. :)
|Jun-25-10|| ||Open Defence: thanks, to have 100% wins in such a strong field is incredible, I think my 2 Knights game against Keypusher as Black was my best...|
|Jul-18-10|| ||Open Defence: Radu Stancu :)|
|Jul-20-10|| ||radu stancu: Whoa... Just one loss? I need to correct this! (not by adding more losses, mind you, that *would* be very easy ;) ).|
|Nov-07-10|| ||Annie K.: <I learned to play chess from my dad (who didn't??).>|
Me... I learned from my grandfather. ;)
Congratulations - I just noticed your player page! :)
|Nov-13-10|| ||radu stancu: Thanks. :)|
|Feb-26-11|| ||I play the Fred: Is there some sort of cg.com correspondence league that I don't know about? I want in! Think of all the easy points you'll get off me!|
|Feb-26-11|| ||WannaBe: <I play the Fred> there is a CG.com team at GameKnot.com and we compete against other teams, <just a kid> is our team captain.|
|Mar-16-11|| ||Penguincw: Just dropping by to say hi.Hi.|
|Sep-11-12|| ||WannaBe: Please change your team match settings so you can get more games.|
Settings -> Other Preferences -> Max Team Games.
Tried to get you more games, but I think you have it set to 2. And I can't get/give you any more.
|Sep-11-12|| ||radu stancu: I replied through a gameknot message. It's easier for me to follow than this forum, but if you'd rather have the conversation here, let me know.|
|Nov-28-12|| ||kudubux: Hello!
Good game we're having in Gameknot but I think you let me off the hook back in the position where we still have our Queens.
|Nov-30-12|| ||radu stancu: Hi there. It does indeed look like I might have missed something earlier. :)|
|Nov-30-12|| ||kudubux: We can do postmortem on it here, yes?|
|Dec-12-12|| ||radu stancu: Sure, but it will have to wait a while. I'm crazy busy right now, so maybe during my vacation or afterwards.|
|Mar-27-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <I learned to play chess from my dad (who didn't??).>|
Excuse me. I did *not* learn to play chess from your dad. I've never even met the man. ;-)
|Mar-28-13|| ||moronovich: I didnīt learn chess from your dad,either ;)
But I can not say 100% sure I didnīt meet him ;)..
|Mar-28-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <But I can not say 100% sure I didnīt meet him>|
That's a good point.
Let's say I consider it extremely improbable, but certainty is impossible given the present state of my information.
