  perfidious: Tony Miles was, after a time, invited to fewer top-level events simply because while remaining a strong grandmaster, he was gradually supplanted by younger players who forged their way to the top and gained their spurs as Miles had.

By the time Miles suffered a breakdown and left Britain for a while, he was not even the strongest player in USA.

  perfidious: <bigmell>: If you find yourself unable to discern that <keypusher>'s criticism was almost certainly directed towards the number of kibitzes which Miles' notorious 1....a6 has received in general, and not at you, at all events, you seem thin-skinned.

  perfidious: <bigmell: No, you dont have a shot (at defeating a grandmaster)....>

Who says so? From my humble station, I have beaten several GMs in blitz.

If you-or anyone else-thinks they haven't got a shot, then most probably you won't do anything. As a poker player, I have played with many of the world's best, and if I believed I could not play with them, that would have been a waste of time.

Aug-09-13  BlackFront: Karpov used to beat Miles like an old drum. Why would he want to deny himself a walking point?

  keypusher: <bigmell: i'm sorry did you just call me a moron?>

No. I don't know you well enough yet. I said your kibitz was moronic.

<BlackFront: Karpov used to beat Miles like an old drum. Why would he want to deny himself a walking point?>

Exactly.

Aug-10-13  bigmell: hey idiot, play stupid chess you dont get invited to the invite only tourneys. Thats the way it goes. Thats why its invite only. Kamsky is kinda famously pissed about this. Make sure you call ppl moronic in public. I'd like the chance to smack you in the face.

  perfidious: Whatever is <bigmell> going on about here, other than someone being moronic? Is this poster first cousin to posters over at Rogoff such as <!!> and <dice>, what with his vitriol towards all and sundry?

  Benzol: <bigmell> <No, you dont have a shot. Grandmasters are a privilege to play>

Yes it is a privilege to play GMs but it is possible to win or draw with them. They are human too and not infallible.

Aug-10-13  bigmell: Did you miss the whole part about fouling Michael Jordan, cause thats what im referring to here. It is possible to @#$% 100 dollar bills but it probably won't happen and playin like an @#$%*@! doesnt make it more likely. Thats my point.

  perfidious: <bigmell>: It is perfectly possible for any responder to your rants to have overlooked one particular or another, so replete are they with ad hominem attacks and other ramblings.
Aug-10-13  bigmell: go to a simul, act an ass, wonder why the GM doesn't come back next year. Easy as that.

Could be you are well aware of this magic formula because you have played this script to the hilt.

Sorry, I won't take advantage of a moron in public.

Aug-10-13  bigmell: then sit at home and be a bitch
Aug-10-13  micartouse: Rookfile's initial advice is well known in chess and other fields: play sharp up, play quiet down. This strategy actually makes sense if you imagine it mathematically: Your rating is like your mean and the style of game you choose is like your standard deviation. If the GM makes a mistake in a quiet game, it will be far less likely to result in drastic material loss from which the GM can't recover. Not sure if it's true, but it's a sensible theory.

But all that said, my personal opinion is that chess is first and foremost a social board game, and so the player should play whatever he thinks is most fun at the time, and as long as he does so, a mature GM will have no reason to be offended.

Aug-10-13  bigmell: Im playin Susan Polgar at a simul, some @#$%*@! is in the hall telling sexist jokes blowing a trumpet... A real one he brought it with him. His friend is playing whispering nasty @#$% whenever she walks to the board. She doesnt come back for a couple years. Guys like that normally dont play sound positional chess they play high stress gambit chess.
Aug-10-13  bigmell: micartouse: I kinda disagree, I prefer to play drawish positions vs higher rated players. They tend to play for a win and will take a slightly worse position than accept a 30 move draw vs a lower rated player. Strangely lower rated players will often outright lose a drawn position cause they want to play "fighting chess." Too much hot and cold just makes lukewarm water etc. I got to a slightly worse rook and pawn endgame with a grandmaster. Im a positional guy so I was thrilled :)

No I didn't miss the bit about fouling Michael Jordan. My point is if you play like a drongo you're probably going to lose but this would happen with any opponent not just an IM or GM. <perfidious> has related that he's beaten several GMs in blitz play. From my own experience I know it's possible to hold GMs to a draw in simuls.

Been known to play in said fashion when facing untitled players and come to just that fate.

LOL making friends as always, with your arrogant stupidity.

<keypusher: <bigmell>

<bigmell> the thing you should know about keypusher is, he puts on the air of being intelligent, but when you get him in a discussion of esoteric topics he reveals a profound lack of knowledge.

He "tries" to make up for his deficiency by acting arrogant. One time he tried to argue that the city of Stalingrad is in Ukraine. LOL, what fun I had with that. Two or 3 years on now, and I am still LOL about it.

<posoo> I like you and enjoy your posts, but <keypusher> is kinda full of himself.

If you like him, fine, I don't want to interfere with your on line friendship. Just saying my opinion.
