wwall: Tastes like hard rubber. No kidding. Sort of like that weight reducing candy, Ayds, but harder. Its a new condoment used by the navy for all the seamen. Invented by that British seaman and sperm whale hunter, Fellatio Nelson (and not by Herpes the Love Bug as some people think). I ...

wwall: <This Horst Ueltzen may one day become famous.> <Bill Wall can then add Horst Ueltzen's name to the list of famous people who played chess and because of this database Edward Winter can not question it's validity.> He better hurry. He is almost 80 years old. ...

Apr-16-11  Open Defence: breaking news!! Bill Wall + Open Defence draw against Rybka!! :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: I think it was Houdini we played, run by Aylerkupp. We had Black. With the help of Hosea, we got a draw (drawn endgame as we sacked our knight to get into a knight vs pawn ending).
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: i thought Wilson said GE and AK switched engines and kutz just posted his stockfish game against houdini, so my guess we drew with rybka.. though i am very confused at the line up change
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: the yahoo game score emailed to me is in a very poor format will wait for AK to post the PGN

  wwall: <chessmoron>. I have no problem on the May date, but now I have a conflict for next week, April 30. I am playing in the Space Coast Open in Cocoa, FL with round 1 at 10 am and Rd 2 at 1 pm. I don't think I can make the 12 noon start time for EST. Can a replacement be found for me or can Hosea and Eric play if Eric makes it?
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: does Sunday 1 May 2011 work for you Bill?
Apr-23-11  chessmoron: <1 May 2011> won't work for <kutztown> though.

Would April 29th work for you <wwall>?

Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: Friday, April 29 would work for me if it is in the evening EST. On May 1, my rounds are at 9 am and 2:30 pm. I would be ok in the evening.
Apr-23-11  chessmoron: 10:30 pm EDT Friday on April 29th? (That 8 am Saturday in India). If that doesn't work for you, Thursday, the 28th at the same time?

  Golden Executive: <chessmoron> <April 30-Round 3

Stockfish-Rybka 4 >
I (Houdini´s operator) have no problem playing at Sunday May 1 or Friday 29. I have problem thursday 28

Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: 10:30 pm EST works perfectly for me on Friday (Thursday also works)
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: just read the comments to the rybka game at,

I dont think the average chess fan understands how much of a handicap no Opening books and no Tablebases are to an engine

it still takes a lot of work to go the distance against an engine but with opening books and tablebases the engines would gain and exploit advantages in record time

so the guy who posted that rybka must have been handicapped was in a sense right that it was handicapped with no opening book or tablebase but not otherwise in handicapped in any way..

wonder what they will say for the stockfish game especially since it was a tactical shot that got the draw!
