I like reading, writing, redheads, and roughhousing. I'm a fairly decent boxer, know a little jiu-jutsu, and am an avid chessplayer.

   Mar-19-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
theagenbiteofinwit: Carlsen just gave a great AMA on three hours ago. My favorite quote is his response to Nakamur calling him "Sauron> on twitter: <I've never actually watched Lord of the Rings... if I had, and Nakamura had been a better chess player, I might have been more
   Mar-17-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
theagenbiteofinwit: Kramnik's play with black is amazing. The Svidler game was amazing and 100% of the kibitzers here criticizing his play with black wouldn't be able to get a draw with him in a million years. As far as criticizing the strategy...It seems to make sense to me that he sticks ...

theagenbiteofinwit: The official reaction to the bombing in Boston went beyond cowardice, it was tactical insanity. Whether the bombers were real terrorists or not, real terrorists learned a valuable lesson from this. If terrorists want to destroy the U.S. economy, all they have to do is ...
   Apr-03-13 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
theagenbiteofinwit: I was disappointed and yet not disappointed how the candidate's match turned out. In a way I'm sympathetic to Kramnik. I think most chess players would rather have his record in the tournament than Carlsen's insofar as that I think it's preferable to lose only one game in

theagenbiteofinwit: <Complaining about Ivanchuk's "lack of professionalism" sounds a bit like comparing Salvador Dali to an accountant. Definitely true, but missing the point.> Nah, Dali was very good with his money. When he went out he would draw on the checks he'd write to pay for ...

theagenbiteofinwit: <Manny's not even close to these guys who made the cut from the 2013 Forbes list.> It's true that Manny isn't as rich as those guys, but I think his involvement would raise more attention and promote chess more than anyone on that list.
   Mar-19-13 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2013 (replies)
theagenbiteofinwit: Tiiiime is on Carlsen's side, yes it is.

theagenbiteofinwit: <Shams> The fight is going to Nick. The portion of the match where the steroid-powered Frenchman holds down the fighter is going to George.

theagenbiteofinwit: Ah talking about the old Golden boy brings back memories. If I recall you were dubbed an alcoholic patzer who was utterly incapable of comprehending chess at the level of a Life Master. My best contribution in that whole fiasco was when I calculated that the master in ...
   Mar-07-13 Morphy vs T Lichtenhein, 1859 (replies)
theagenbiteofinwit: <Anyone here think he could beat Morphy with knight odds?> Since I've memorized about 100 of his games, I'd say I could give him a run for his money if I'm a knight up :)
