|Jun-02-13|| ||brankat: <moro> Good show my friend! In case of a tied first place what are we going to use as a "tie-breaker"? The age ? :-)|
|Jun-02-13|| ||brankat: Btw, I have a strong feeling that <Switch> is going to collect the entire P-3 pool in round 11 :-)|
|Jun-03-13|| ||moronovich: <brankat: <moro> Good show my friend! In case of a tied first place what are we going to use as a "tie-breaker"? The age ? :-)> Thanks and the same to you.You really deserve it IMO.But how to use the age ? Is oldest better than not the oldest ?:)...Nah,Iīll make a Linares as when Garry gave the trophy to Kramnik !|
|Jun-03-13|| ||moronovich: <<brankat: Btw, I have a strong feeling that <Switch> is going to collect the entire P-3 pool in round 11 :-<)>|
Well,well,well.We all know the skills of <Switch>,but making a P-3 bonanza where only The Double is,must be beyound his magic :)But we shall see.
And i may perhaps stay put today.Cannīt till now figure it out.
|Jun-03-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <moronovich> Good luck for the last round! I didn't know I had been out of the race :-)|
|Jun-03-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <(1) moronovich 7,653

Good luck to both of you for the rest of the leg!

|Jun-04-13|| ||moronovich: Right <wordfunph> ! Looking forward to the final were I hope all the best for you.Many bucks still to go..|
|Jun-11-13|| ||brankat: The action will continue soon. Best of luck the rest of the way!|
|Jun-16-13|| ||brankat: Good luck in #4!|
|Jun-17-13|| ||brankat: I have this gut-feeling that our friend <Switch> is giving us a chance to win :-)|
Good luck in round #5!
|Jun-18-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: We'll see... ;-)
Good luck to both of you for round 5!
|Jun-18-13|| ||moronovich: Yes,we will see,but so far the cat is on fire..
And good luck to both of you as well !
|Jun-18-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: I just can't get it right. I wanted Carlsen <or> Gelfand to win, but <not both>... :(|
|Jun-18-13|| ||moronovich: < SwitchingQuylthulg: I just can't get it right. I wanted Carlsen <or> Gelfand to win, but <not both>... :( >|
Yeah,I know the feeling.And as a player/gambler it can be really discouraging in the worst case IME.Sometimes the remedy is to start on a fresh/seeing it all with new eyes.
My first instinct yesterday was W-W/Anything..and it paid off.
But at the realmoney bookies I made a Switch too.50 euros on Gelfie/kombined with plausible highoddsers (instead of recycling "old" Magnus...). :(
But 4 rounds to go..You can still make it !
|Jun-18-13|| ||brankat: Showed a small profit in round #5, around $350.|
|Jun-18-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <brankat> c$9,651 + c$350 = c$10,001. Did you manage to cross the line? :)|
I made a minor profit too, akshly. But it's not what I was looking for...
|Jun-18-13|| ||moronovich: I will be on 9.762 so the cat is sill in the driving seat !|
10001 is a kind of magic number--the winning ticket ?..
Good luck for tomorrow, gamblin fellas :)
|Jun-18-13|| ||brankat: Actually I'll be at 9,993. Ten grand still remains elusive :-)|
|Jun-18-13|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: The leaderboard doesn't seem to think so :)
<(1) brankat 10,105>
Good luck to both of you for round 6!
|Jun-18-13|| ||brankat: Sorry guys. I didn't mean to deceive You, but somehow I mis-calculated my total. I think the amount probably includes the money I had bet on the tournament winner.|
|Jun-19-13|| ||achieve: <moro> Good morning, how is life treating you these days?|
I posted this over at Boomie's as well, but would appreciate your take on THE GAME from yesterday at Tal Mem...
copied: --> Did you play over the Carlsen-Anand game from yesterday? I did so this morning and hardly understood a thing (I know the Nimzo quite well, and Carlsen used an old and quiet initial set-up), and given that Anand was basically almost lost after some 22 moves he must have been scratching his head and then some; what on earth had happened?
My first reaction was like, err, how can the Indian Magician, one of the great ones to ever play the game, be dismantled in this subtle yet firm fashion, as if there was no resource anywhere....?
Is this like Fischer at his best, late 60s, surgeon-like precision, ruthless, and rather simple looking?
I still am quite busy but I need to go over some of the analysis, and the game itself again too, to get to the bottom of this. I simply want to understand what happened, and what it was in the position that made Vishy look this wing-clipped.
