Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-25-11  Mozart72: White's final material value: 17.2, Blacks: 12.5. Both players agreed to draw with a theoretical rook advantage for white. If 17.2 - 12.5 = 4.7, rounded to the nearest whole number = 5. A 5 in the standard chess relative value scale is equal to a rook.
Oct-25-11  Shams: <Mozart72> Any idiot can see that White is up a rook in the final position. What's your point?

  beatgiant: <Shams> <I don't believe in good moves. I believe in Art.> says <Mozart72>'s profile. You won't have a normal chess discussion with someone who doesn't believe in good moves.
Oct-25-11  kellmano: Weirder still is the fact that the rook is obviously just about to come back following ...... Qg4+.

Black then has a perpetual if he wants, but could possibly play foe the win.

Oct-25-11  Mozart72: A theoretical chess piece is one that is not phisically on the chess board but has an influence on the game. It's like dark matter: it's not there for you to see but it exists. The interesting thing about a theoretical chess piece is to find the position where it influences and affects the game.

You keep posting everywhere <White's final material value: X, Black's: Y, ... etc.> and it is getting close to spamming or duplicating posts. I suggest you move discussion of your theory of value to a forum like The Kibitzer's Café instead of on every game page.
Oct-25-11  Mozart72: <beatgiant> I am in no way spamming or duplicating posts. I am analyzing material value and theoretical chess pieces. If you do not understand my "value theory", please go to my Chessforum: Mozart72.

There is something I could post now, but I won't. It will be a theoretical kibitz that is not physically on the forum but has an influence on the discussion....
Oct-25-11  AnalyzeThis: I've heard of bean counters. What is this called?
Oct-25-11  Everett: An artistic number-cruncher: something new.
Oct-26-11  Mozart72: And voilĂ ....
