|Mar-09-14|| ||Strongest Force: When I played at ICC, two regulars were always there and they now play each other in rd 7. They are Olafsson-Norrowitz. We know Norrowitz as csmath. Olafsson was a world blitz champ and I did play him but I never played csmath. I expect Walter Browne to get six points today.|
|Mar-09-14|| ||perfidious: <SF> That being so, I should note that, while I have had my differences with <csmath> as a kibitzer, I have never doubted his acumen as an analyst. Bit of a tendency towards generalities at times, but in my experience, he understands more than many of the kibitzers here who try to debunk his analytical powers.|
|Mar-09-14|| ||Strongest Force: That is an excellent take on this csmath fellow, perf.|
|Mar-09-14|| ||Strongest Force: Norowitz's pawn looks overextended...Krush could be getting crushed ...Browne looks good... another ICC legend, "Little Peasant" (works for Chessbase) is doing his thing.|
|Mar-09-14|| ||waustad: Ezat totally outplayed Krush today. She resigned in a hopeless position with only a few seconds left on the clock.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||PhilFeeley: Lots of Canadians in this one. They passed up Cappelle-la-Grande for Iceland in March. It must remind them of home better than France.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||fgh: <csmath> is Norowitz? What is your proof for that?|
|Mar-10-14|| ||Strongest Force: <ugh>, my proof is about 15 years experience with him. I asked him a question at cg.com that he passed with flying colors. If you are sceptical you can ask him when he returns.|
|Mar-10-14|| ||Strongest Force: Sorry about "ugh". It was funny how my comp changed your handle:-). My experience with csmath goes well beyond 15 years. He must have been a baby when he started playing online. Ask him about it when he returns|
|Mar-10-14|| ||fgh: I doubt that, for several reasons, including:
1) <csmath>'s English; he makes mistakes Norowitz does not.
2) Their openings; <csmath> is heavily focused on the Grunfeld and 1. e4, while Norowitz's games in this database point in a different direction.
3) <csmath> claims to work in computer science and math, and has made many derisive comments about the viability of making a living as a chess player, while Norowitz earns his living as a chess player and coach.
|Mar-10-14|| ||Strongest Force: Fgh, maybe everything you say is true and csmath leads a double life? :)|
|Mar-10-14|| ||Strongest Force: Browne- Olafsson is a good choice for rd-8. Don't know if <fgh> agrees however...hehehe:-)|
|Mar-10-14|| ||Doniez: I follow cg since last year and I didn't know that csmath is Norrowitz, and for sure, I will ask him as he come back. Too curious!|
|Mar-10-14|| ||haydn20: It's nice to see Browne, only two yrs younger than I, playing at this level. Nice, but embarassing to yours truly as well.|
|Mar-11-14|| ||notyetagm: Reykjavik Open (2014)|
Li Chao b mopping the floor with Rapport in Round 9.
|Mar-11-14|| ||boz: Another smooth win by Hansen. This time against Naiditsch.|
|Mar-12-14|| ||PhilFeeley: Eric Hansen, leading the Canadian contingent, is on his way to 2700. First Canadian to get there? Go Eric!|
|Mar-12-14|| ||moronovich: Hansen is doing surprisingly well.|
|Mar-12-14|| ||GlennOliver: "haydn20:
It's nice to see Browne, only two yrs younger than I, playing at this level."
Agreed, an exceptional performance from a player of 65.
|Mar-12-14|| ||ForeverYoung: Very nice showing from 6-time!!! Well done!|
|Mar-12-14|| ||PhilFeeley: Canadians topped the Americans here. Who could have predicted this?|
|Mar-13-14|| ||Bob Loblaw: <moronovich: Hansen is doing surprisingly well.>
Tied for third with 7 out of 10 without losing a game at Gibraltar this year; first at Capelle-la-Grande in 2013' following a first place win in Barcelona; not much of a surprise at all, really.|
|Jul-19-14|| ||moronovich: Just a test.|
|Oct-02-14|| ||moronovich: another test|
|Jan-05-15|| ||moronovich: a third test ;)|
