Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-04  EeEk: Playoff for the title to be played in the end of August, Carlsen has to win at least 1.5-0.5 to become champion, because of ěstenstad's better tie break points.
Jul-16-04  mahmoudkubba: Does <Nerwejia> is the <Israel of Europe> or is it <Potougal>or <oth of them>?????I'm talking theoratical point of view for the contenantal Europe that is on the map yet not on earth but on earth as we studied in Geography? Any answering please
Jul-16-04  Capafan9: Carlsen had a good showing here. It will be tough for him in the tiebreak though. Alot of pressure when he has to win one of the games and hold in the other.
Jul-21-04  HalfOpenFile: If it has been said before, forgive me, but Simen Agdestein is so special. To get to the very top of his profession at both football and chess, when you consider the amount of commitment just one of these pursuits would require, bamboozles me to this day. I went through such a dilemma as a 17-year-old having to choose between my county chess team and my local boys-club football team. Such angst! Turn that up a thousand notches to where Simen must have been and, somehow, he managed to reach the very top at both. Simen, I take my hat off to you, my hero.
Jul-22-04  poktirity: <HalfOpenFile> Where does Simon play football? Or is he retired?

Football is often called "the chess of the green fields" (at least in Sweden :P ) because it requires a great understanding of the positions of the players, more than other games.

Jul-22-04  nikolaas: ...though there are seldom tackles in chess...
Jul-22-04  AgentRgent: <...though there are seldom tackles in chess...> You've never seen me play! ;-)
Jul-22-04  nikolaas: <AgentRgant> How can you tackle someone if you play chess? ??
Jul-22-04  AgentRgent: <nikolaas:> it was a joke...
Jul-22-04  lek: <poktirity>: Simen is retired because of injury, in the leg I think. He was a striker at the Norwegian national team under the reign of the famous and quite controversial trainer Mr Egil "Drillo" Olsen. I ask myself whether his chess suffered because of his football career and vice versa. Anyway, being both a football and a chess fan I understand his desire to do both.
Sep-17-04  nikolaas: ěstenstad is the new Norwegian champion. He drawed both games against Carlsen, who had an inferior tie-break. (Source: The week in chess)
