A Chess Amateur. No Actual chess credentials, other than having grown up in a small town where one of the best Chess World Champions, Vishy Anand, was born.

I have to say with pride that soon-to-be-in-2700club Baskaran Adhiban is also from same town.

  moronovich: That was quite funny.
Woody never appeared as the most yellow banana in the jungle at Sams Bar. Which he seemed to confirm yesterday.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: Ha Ha, he surely seemed to be too nervous to be on centrestage of a World Chess Championship opening, making an opening move for the challenger. My hands would have been trembling, but that's why they call celebrities who should have been used to such, you would think.

Come to think of it, that has been the highlight of this match so far sadly. Glad it happened.

  moronovich: <My hands would have been trembling, but that's why they call celebrities who should have been used to such, you would think.>

Which reminds me of my first international tournament were in the first round I met a guy from Spain I knew nothing about.After a while I recognized I was pretty much nervous. Then I took an intensive look at my opponent and realized : He was more nervous than me!That helped a lot and I duly won the game ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: Nice, thanks for sharing, <moronovich>. I think we all go through such instances, but timely presence of mind of the situation could help a lot. I can see how the nervousness would play out in tournaments, even though I have never been a player.

I have always wondered, is this your real name?

  Tiggler: < I can see how the nervousness would play out in tournaments, even though I have never been a player.>

I had to give up tournament play nearly thirty years ago because I would become a nervous wreck. Weekend swiss tournaments that I played were 5 or six rounds at about 30 moves in 90 minutes: one on Friday evening, three on Saturday, two on Sunday. Then on Sunday evening I often had a 3-4 hour drive to get home, because I lived in a fairly remote small town. Never much use at work on Monday after that!

Best were team matches: they usually involved only one or two games. Then there was the company and support of teammates. Plenty of pressure not to let them down, of course.

My best moment was in a team match when I got the chance to play a Fried Liver Attack. I was pretty hazy about the book lines, but my opponent was even more lost. I was celebrity for weeks after that at my club: "Did you hear about Tiggler crushing NN in a Fried Liver?"

Highest OTB rating was in the 1900s (USCF) and, of course, I never won anything.

  moronovich: <I have always wondered, is this your real name?>

Thanks for asking <jith> ! No it was something between my son and me who,among other things shared a deep passion for chess.And our favourite at that time was Morozevich.My son played with the wording and came up with the self ironical <moronovich>,which he used on the net.In 2006 he got a severe braindamage and I "stole" his handle.

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Hi <Tiggler> ! Yes chess is a lot about the nervous system as you demonstrate.

In that respect chess can clearly be a cruel game.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Hello <jith1207>. Enjoy the holiday season.

  jith1207: Hi <moronovich>: I couldn't imagine how I could reply to you as I lost my Father to a rare cancer that went from diagnosis to taking his life in less than a month and my life has never been the same again. If I may ask, what happened to your Son?

I hope you get the Best user name award in year end Caissars awards for your son's selection. I voted for him.

Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: <Tiggler>: I can completely understand the sentiments. I become a nervous wreck when I realize that my position has been already compromised and I could never make a good move when I am losing. To me, it looks like it would take tremendous will to keep analyzing for the best shot <while losing>. I couldn't get myself to play the same way. If I have to play multiple speed games one after another, I am sure one game would affect subsequently all my play throughout the day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: Hi <Penguincw>, wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for the wishes, I hope you have a great time too.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: I nearly fell off my chair when I saw my user name being nominated for most constructive poster award in year end Caissars awards. I was late this year to vote than usual, (hope it's not too late), so I didn't get to be surprised even earlier.

Anyway, I'm honored to have been nominated by the committee, which I don't deserve, considering how many kibitzers I would myself mention ahead of my name. I take it as my contribution (not sure if it is the best way to put) after Daniel's passing.

I am also delighted to be one among many legendary kibitzers and that one HOF member, <ChrisOwen>.

  agb2002: <jith1207: Hi, do you know what happened to the long term user User: dzechiel

His page says there's no such user on record now. Perhaps he has asked the account to be removed?

jith1207: Sorry, it looks like the link in your bio is no longer working. He seems to be available, thankfully has just commented after a long time.>

Hi, I used to read dzechiel's posts relative to the POTD but none others, so I had no idea whether he discontinued his membership or kept it.

The link on my page probably uses an obsolete addressing method.

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Hi <jith 1207> !

Thanks for your question and your words of care.

So sorry to hear about your dad.
It must be a terrible painful experience to you as you also say in words.And if I in anyway can be some help to you,just let me know.Loosing a parent or a child is something that can not be compared to anything ells. I hope you have good friends and/or relatives who can support you.Whatever that means to you personally.

My son and I had 30 wonderful years together and then he got into a tough period and tried to hard to takke some of the pressure with using alcohol and one day with a promille of 4.00(which is extremely high and mortal to some)he got a blackout and after a month in coma he never fully recovered.

I have learned to live with it,though the whole is always there.And being gratefull to all this wonderful time we had together has helped a lot during the process.And allowing myself to be happy despite the tragic circumstances.A half empty glass is the closest neighbour to the half filled glass,if I shall try to find a picture that covers some of the road.

Once again I wish you all the best for your process and the healing.

Tata and soon also the spring is ahead of us !

Sincerely -moronovich- .

  jith1207: I don't know if there's a page for discussing QOTD, so here's today's:

<Modern chess is too much concerned with things like pawn structure. Forget it; checkmate ends the game. " --- Short>

Yeah, that's right, more often AGAINST the one who has not been careful with the pawn structure.

  jith1207: Love this incident:

Quote of the Day

" The outcome of [Nimzowitch's] discourteous remark was a series of quick games for a side bet, which I won with ridiculous ease, and ended by his retracting the statement he had previously made. Many more of these games were played, until all the masters agreed that I had no equal at this kind of chess. " --- Capablanca

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I was always a bit put off by the Short quote. I think Pawns are still the soul of chess.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: True, <OCF>. I'm sure Nigel said in some context where it made sense for him, but I already cringe when it is used broadly without specifying the scenario.

Anyway, did you notice User: zanzibar has stopped commenting? He used to be a prolific commenter here. I was wondering what happened!

Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: **Always, not already
Premium Chessgames Member
  jith1207: I love this QOTD:

" Mother, I have just become Ex-World Champion.
" --- Tal (upon losing to Botvinnik)

I haven't read any Chess books or have really gotten interest in reading biography of chess players even as I have loved knowing interesting short stories of their lives like Bronstein, who somehow has taken a cherished spot in my heart even though I don't remember all that I read about him.... But, Tal seems to be one likeable person of the past.
