|Jul-05-12|| ||A.G. Argent: <Meme> <...making the most of '5 days per move'> Must be a team trait, eh, Meme? With my games v. them, same as that. Most leisurely, shall we say. Snore. But I gotta give <rookie789/just a kid> some props in his win against them. A tidy victory. Nice move with 50.f4+

With his second game well in hand as well. Versus a 1695 player. How about nominating justakid<Tyler> for most improved player?
|Jul-05-12|| ||just a kid: <Argent> I certainly am flattered at your suggestion. Hopefully I can maintain this level of play for the team's sake.|
In my most recent team match game, both my opponent and I have chose the Queen's gambit declined as our opening. Makes it feel like Capa-Alekhine 1927! But who is Capa and who is Alekhine??
|Jul-05-12|| ||technical draw: <But who is Capa and who is Alekhine??>|
Capablanca and Alekhine? Never heard of them.
|Jul-05-12|| ||WannaBe: Regarding time usage, I tend to use up most, if not, close to all of my time when an interesting position arises.|
Take for example, an OTB tournament, the lowest ranked sections always finish first, even if it's a 40/2hr + 1 hr sudden death, which is typical for US tourneys.
Or, this example: http://gameknot.com/team-match.pl?b... where my opponent and I are already in the mid-twenties in our move count, while the higher rated players are still calculating.
|Jul-08-12|| ||technical draw: I have a pretty bad record against chess games.com members. Pretty bad? How about horrible?:|
|Jul-09-12|| ||technical draw: <TD reporting a win against Paul Morphy team member "jnsmchisn". My opponent blundered a knight and generously resigned. The second game doesn't look too good for me though.>|
Well I turned the tables in the second game and now I have a won game. I will report the 2-0 as soon as my opponent resigns.
|Jul-09-12|| ||just a kid: Forgot to report the other win vs Vame12 of the team The Slowpokes (er, I mean Yerevan)|
|Jul-09-12|| ||technical draw: Confirmed TD 2-0 against Paul Morphy team member "jnsmchisn". In the second game I went from losing to drawing to winning. Luck o the Irish.|
|Jul-10-12|| ||technical draw: I need more team games captain. Right now I have none and after my 2-0 win I'm hungry for more. Bring em on!|
|Jul-10-12|| ||WannaBe: OK, hang tight, anyone else need game(s)? I will put y'all together with <technical draw>.|
|Jul-10-12|| ||WannaBe: Another win for The Team! http://gameknot.com/team-match.pl?i...|
|Jul-10-12|| ||technical draw: Yeah, great job <falso contacto>!|
|Jul-11-12|| ||falso contacto: thanks.|
|Jul-12-12|| ||WannaBe: Good luck everyone, against "WE SOLD OUR SOUL FOR ROCK 'N' ROLL...." and "Srbija tim"|
|Jul-12-12|| ||OhioChessFan: Dortmund Moves Prediction Contest, sponsored by the legendary <chessmoron> and hosted in my forum, is now open. First round begins Friday the 13th. Click on Elvis for details.|
|Jul-12-12|| ||OhioChessFan: <Wannabe> that would be J.G.S.C.<O.>A.Y.W.|
|Jul-12-12|| ||technical draw: Yippee! I won a game on game knot (non-team) that puts me above 1700 and gives me a 6 month high. I am now 1706 but I won't be there for long as I have a bad position in one game. But heck, records are records.|
|Jul-12-12|| ||AgentRgent: Sigh
When you asked who was ready for more games I told you the two I was in were well underway and that I'd let you know when I was ready for more... NOT that I was ready for more NOW.
What makes it worse is that I'm getting ready to leave town for 12 days...
|Jul-12-12|| ||WannaBe: Did I goof? Were you the one that was moving? Did I confuse one agent with another agent?|
|Jul-12-12|| ||WannaBe: I did click/select the wrong agent, one of you, care to change your name on GameKnot?|
Go to Settings and then right next to your name would be the place to do it. It would take a lot of confusion out of me.
I know it's asking quite a bit. I am sorry <AgentRgent>.
|Jul-13-12|| ||AgentRgent: <WannaBe: I did click/select the wrong agent, one of you, care to change your name on GameKnot?> I hope you are joking...|
|Jul-13-12|| ||technical draw: Just as long as he doesn't change his name to "greatchessactor".|
|Jul-13-12|| ||A.G. Argent: How about "<great technical actor>"?|
|Jul-13-12|| ||Memethecat: Asking <agargent> & <agentrgent> to change their GK handles is a terrible idea, the rest of *us* should change our names instead.|
<ageragent, agentagar, agaragarent, aggentrent, agentagant> are just a few of the many choices available to us. Apart from possibly intimidating opposing teams, Wannabe's job could be made far more...interesting.
|Jul-13-12|| ||technical draw: I'm changing my name to <agentprovocateur>. Wanna make something of it??|
