|Jul-21-14|| ||zanzibar: <chessgames> <And one must be careful, because especially in blitz, there's no guarantee that the side who is winning in the final position didn't get flagged.>|
One thing I was wondering - for these top-level blitz tournaments... what is the percentage of games decided on time?
And how does this vary as a function of average player rating?
Just curious... in case anybody knows.
|Jul-22-14|| ||zanzibar: Actually, DGT games should also record the remaining time on the clocks in the PGN stream. |
That would be additional confirmation for flagged games, and would be otherwise be interesting anyways.

|Jul-22-14|| ||Chessical: <chessgames.com> Sorry to be a real pest but driven by an overwhelming compulsion to complete:|
Game Collection: Hastings (1980/81); I see that
Andersson-Sunye - R7
Liberzon-Brito - R7
don't appear to have uploaded from the 19th (probably my fault with the rogue ˝-˝). Should I resubmit them?
|Jul-22-14|| ||OhioChessFan: |
|Jul-22-14|| ||chessgames.com: <Chessical> No need, I reprocessed them.|
Ulf Andersson vs J Sunye Neto, 1981
V Liberzon vs L Brito, 1981
|Jul-22-14|| ||chessgames.com: That's odd, thousands of people are visiting the site today mostly via http://sportgeza.hu/sakk/2014/07/22... all to see the
R Rapport vs T Rogers, 2014 game. |
If we get some new Hungarian members let's welcome them with open arms.
|Jul-22-14|| ||chessgames.com: Also, sorry about being late with the Gelfand-Svidler rapid match that is taking place; we'll get those games online soon.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Annie K.: Heh. If you need a translator, just let me know... :)|
|Jul-22-14|| ||chessgames.com: I am curious what <Itt megnézheti ezt a mattot> means.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Annie K.: It means "you can look at this mate here". :)|
|Jul-22-14|| ||chessgames.com: Makes perfect sense.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||OhioChessFan: I'd be careful about clicking on a link that said that anywhere online.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Annie K.: <Ohio> that particular pun potential doesn't exist in the Hungarian version, though. ;p|
BTW, the whole paragraph says:
'Rapport has probably scored his life's easiest victory with this. You can look at this mate here, it won't take up much of your time.'
|Jul-22-14|| ||Thanh Phan: This is great to see how many people visited from an article linking to here, an interested group.|
<Annie K.> nice to see your language having such an active community regarding chess :)
|Jul-22-14|| ||Annie K.: <Thanh> thanks, Hungary has a large chess community, but they tend to stay on local sites, since the older generation doesn't speak English very well. The main foreign languages that used to be taught in Hungary were Russian, German, and French. Of course things have probably changed a lot since English became Internetese, but the young usually catch on faster.|
<cg> I mentioned your message of welcome on the game page. ;)
|Jul-23-14|| ||zanzibar: <Dubai WBR 2014: Updating breaking tournament games>|
There are a couple of old posts I found that show some of the issues remain:
chessgames.com chessforum (9729)
chessgames.com chessforum (9730)
chessgames.com chessforum (9744)
chessgames.com chessforum (9752)
Now I'm working a little on the 2014 Blitz tournament, just for chuckles. Several parallels seem to appear. I'll post them soon.
|Jul-23-14|| ||zanzibar: If I do an <Adv Search> on|
A R Saleh Salem
with <A R Saleh Salem> the result is:
<Sorry, we have no names that exactly match 'A R SALEH SALEM' in our database.>
I know to sluff off the A and R, but shouldn't <CG> recognize its own canonical name?

This prop should ask which game will have the <fewest> moves played.
<The shortest game will be the game with the least moves played>
<Fewest> is what you want in the above text as well. No need to thank me :P
|Jul-23-14|| ||OhioChessFan: I know <DomDaniel> and I thank you <Blunder>|

|Jul-23-14|| ||WannaBe: Weird Al, NICE!!!|
|Jul-24-14|| ||Thanh Phan: <Annie K.> Interesting, there is a chess community in Vietnam, a majority use Vietnamese or Chinese websites, |
The foreign languages the older generations used to learn were French and Russian,
The younger generations are learning English and Chinese for more online gaming and English for more work related activity
