|Jun-03-15|| ||offramp: <cro777: ...It seems that round 6 might be decisive: Clichy meets Bishwiller.>|
Bishwiller...Bishwiller...Hmm. Aren't they mentioned in a song by Queen?
|Jun-03-15|| ||cro777: Bischwiller is a commune in Alsace in northeastern France. Due to its large Turkish minority, it is often dubbed "Turkwiller". |
Christian Goodnight, born Christian Gutknecht in Bischwiller, is a direct-line ancestor of U.S. President Barack Obama.
|Jun-03-15|| ||offramp: <cro777> I hope I didn't seem too flippant. I, even as a European, have huge respect for all Kenyans and especially the Obama clan.|
|Jun-03-15|| ||cro777: <offramp> What is the connection between Obama and Bischwiller?|
In effect, Obama is of biracial background. His father was a black Kenyan and his mother was white of European descent. Stanley Armour Dunham was Obama's maternal grandfather. Dunham’s distant cousins include Hans Gutknecht, a Swiss German from Bischwiller, Alsace whose three sons resettled in Germantown, Pennsylvania as well as the Kentucky frontier in the mid-18th century.
Bischwiller ("Field of Bishop") is a small town, but "Le Cercle d’Echecs de Bischwiller" http://bischwiller-echecs.com/wp-co... is one of the best chess clubs in France.
Welcome to Bischwiller:
|Jun-04-15|| ||Nosnibor: Nice win Glenn with your victory over much higher rated Andrei Sokolov.|
|Jun-04-15|| ||fgh: <chessgames.com>: Jean-Krzysztov Duda should be replaced with Jan-Krzysztof Duda.|
|Jun-04-15|| ||faulty: Please check the final move of MAZE vs. SMITH (June 4).|
|Jun-04-15|| ||fgh: Another one: Michael Krasenkow should be Michal Krasenkow.|
|Jun-04-15|| ||offramp: <faulty> thanks for the avertissement!|
S Maze vs A Smith, 2015
|Jun-05-15|| ||fgh: Today, Feller and Naiditsch gave us nothing but a shorter version of Mamedyarov vs Wei Yi, 2013.|
S Feller vs Naiditsch, 2015
|Jun-06-15|| ||Penguincw: Stunning! "Clichy" (2590) sweeps "Poitiers-Migné-Auxances" (2251) 8-0! "Clichy" now has 14 match points.|
Meanwhile, "Bischwiller" (who have won all 7 matches so far) could have their perfect record ruined by "Mulhouse". "Bischwiller" is currently leading 3 1/2-2 1/2, but one game looks to be going in "Mulhouse"'s favour, and the other looks drawn, so 4-4 is the likely outcome.
|Jun-06-15|| ||cro777: Bischwiller defeated Mulhouse Philidor 2-1 (in French leagues draws are not counted).|
After 8 rounds, the team of Clichy still trail the team of Bischwiller.
1.Bischwiller 24 points (8 straight wins)
|Jun-07-15|| ||fgh: One of the best games played in this event so far:
A Sokolov vs Naiditsch, 2015
|Jun-07-15|| ||Gypsy: Two loose kings in Navara-Krasenkow.
The horse-race is whether Krasenkow can stave off a White check-mate with a perpetual of his own.
|Jun-07-15|| ||Gypsy: Perhaps, Krasenkow should sac his Rh8 (by Nf6 at some point), to give himself the best chance against White king?|
|Jun-07-15|| ||Gypsy: I mean, right now, by <22...Nf6>.|
|Jun-07-15|| ||Gypsy: Instead, gents traded Queens -- it is now an endgame of 2R vs R+N+2P.|
|Jun-07-15|| ||Gypsy: To my kibitsing opinion, Krasenkow's compact pawns spell trouble for White; Navara will be lucky if he draws the game.|
|Jun-07-15|| ||AsosLight: It is beyond me what was going on in Navara's head.|
|Jun-08-15|| ||1d410: Wesley So is a more interesting chess player than Anish Giri by a mile|
|Jun-09-15|| ||Gryz: <Wesley So is a more interesting chess player than Anish Giri by a mile>
Maybe if you look at the games themselves. But that's subjective. If you look at the results, Giri showed why he belongs in the top 10. So not playing bad either.|
Giri: 7 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw
So: 5 wins, 1 loss, 6 draws
|Jun-09-15|| ||1d410: That's why I chose the word "interesting" not "better"|
|Jun-09-15|| ||JohnDMaster: It looks like Arkadij should avoid playing anymore Sokolovs!|
|Jun-09-15|| ||cro777: Anish Giri."Our team of Bischwiller won the French league with a round to spare! Played some sweet games, inspired to keep it up Norway Chess!"|
Bischwiller won the Championship with a perfect score (winning all 11 matches).
Norway Chess 2015, the first event of the Grand Chess Tour (Norway Chess, Sinquefield Cup and Lodon Chess Classic) is approaching. The event will begin on Monday (June 15th) with a blitz event and opening ceremony.
|Jun-10-15|| ||chancho: 7 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw.
Hell of a result for Anish Giri.
He gained +6.5 points in the live rating, whereas Wesley So lost -6.3.
