"Play the board AND the man ! ".
But mostly the board.
Was born in Elsinore,Denmark,1953.And I am still proud of it.As I hope everyone is proud of hers/his startingpoint.

In many aspects life and chess do mirror each other IM experience.As science and belief goes hand in hand.So many "rules of thumbs" and many "exceptions" from the rule. I do agree with Bent Larsen who once said that someone who cannot contain a paradoxe is not using the full capacity of his brain.Actually I am convinced that there are no parodoxes,but perspectives which are more bright or flexible than others...

Though some obviously are borned under more easygoing circumstances than others,I will second our esteemed fellowkibitzer <zarg> who underlines that "luck" is also somehing that we create ourselves. Ourselves,but also together IM experience.
I try to live my life as if Jesus or Buddha knocked on the door , I would wellcome them as friends . And if they didnīt show up, it would be fine anyway.

Oct-21-20  virginmind: Thank you, my dear <moronovich>, yes, at least we take confort at the thought that her suffering is over. All my life she gave me her unconditioned love, and she was the most kind being ever. God rest her soul in Heaven.

Two days ago, my father (84) tested positive to Covid 19. All our hopes now go for his quick recovery. I will take the test tomorrow and Maria is scheduled after 3 days.

Blessings.

My thoughts and prayers go to your father and all my hopes to you and your loved Maria.

Fingers crossed and all the best from both Hannah and I to you.

What a wonderful woman your mother must have been

Oct-23-20  virginmind: Thank you, <moronovich>, indeed she was.

Hugs to Hannah and you.

Oct-25-20  virginmind: Hi <moronovich>, just to let you know that my father feels better, and both Maria and me tested negative. All the best to you and Hannah.

  morfishine: Good morning Dear <moronovich> I had a fun time at the daily Lichess 960 tournament yesterday. They have a unique scoring system where if you win 2 games in a row, you are labeled "on fire" so if you win the next game, you get double points and so forth. Although I've won two games in a row many times, I've never been able to score that third win in a row, that is until yesterday. Sure was exciting to see my name rocket up the leaderboard to 5th out of 120 players!

Alas, I couldn't continue the streak but finished strong, around 20th out of 150 players. Anyways, sure was fun to finally breakthrough and win those bonus points!

Fishing's been poor though :(

I guess can't win them all

  moronovich: Good morning Dear <morfishine> !

Hope you had a good time with the fishing !?
And no,we canīt win them all ): , ;)

Interesting thing this 2 wins system...
5th out of 120 is not bad.I would rather say good !

May you enjoy your weekend and Iīll send you all the best wishes.

-moro-
whoīs going to watch the Vuelta today.
Mountains,mountains and mountains.With a cruel climb before the finish.

  morfishine: Thank you Dear <moronovich>! Yes, the fishing was enjoyable even though the bounty was small. The weather was poor but one day was absolutely beautiful

One thing that reached the end of the line was my old trusty Remington spinning reel. A gear tooth finally gave way leaving me unable to lock the bail. Luckily, I found a nice reel on sale which I can hardly wait to use

Things happen for mysterious reasons

  moronovich: Good afternoon Dear <morfishine !

"An empty plate
was the fishermans fate" ):

Next year it will happen in reel time...

May I meanwhile propose the beautiful song with The Waterboys - "The Fishermans Blues" ! (can easily be found on you tube).

Nov-07-20
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thank you Dear <moronovich> for that recommendation! What a wonderful song! I listened to both the live version and studio recording and have to admit I prefer the studio version. Audio/sound can be tricky in a live setting

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Umn...

Nov-07-20
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: I am very glad you liked it esteemed<morfishine> !

I found it just 7-8 years ago and it is a relation for life.And I agree audio/sound can be rather tricky.Usually I prefer the studio sound.

Did I ever tell you I knew a folk singer back in 77-79,who occasionally worked on the same bar as me, and he told me about a couple of performances he had with a more known dane who had just had a couple of hits back around 65/66.He couldnīt play the guitar so they gave him some rubber strings.In the back ground were an almost stranger from America.Who were passing by.His name was Paul Simon !

  morfishine: Wow <moronovich> what a great story! The "Sound of Silence" is one my favorite songs by Simon and Garfunkel

Did you ever hear the rendition by the group 'Disturbed'? This live version is really powerful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk7...

Studio version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9D...

I prefer the studio version here though the live one is excellent

Oh yes,I do dearly remember.It is wonderful and even better than the original. It was none less than you who passed it on to me !..........Thank you.

With your background you must almost promise to listen to "The Green Fields of France".Please.The Furys version is outstanding. It is Irelands favourite folk song.

It is about the WW1 and can also be heard
as a tribute to your grandfather who did service over there.

  morfishine: What a wonderful piece of music that is Dear <moronovich>! I have forwarded it to a friend of mine who is much interested in the Great War

Of note, I have my grandfathers volume on his unit, the 79th infantry division. Its over 500 pages with many unique photos, but its in terrible condition, what with being ~100 years old; but there's an expert book binder nearby who I will take the book to for restoration

Nov-08-20
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Morning Dear <morfishine> !

I am very glad you liked that song.
It hits me deeper and deeper as the ears go by.
All those brave people,who many gave their lives so as you and I can sit and kibitz here today ...

And there is a new "film",a documentary
about WW1 were we follow the soldiers closely,from when they draft till they come home.It is by Peter Jackson and I can only recommend it highly.The title is
"They shall not grow old".

Sounds like an excellent idea,restoring the old book.

All the best

  morfishine: Good evening Dear <moronovich>! I see you noted <RoseMei> at the GOTD. Did you know she's only 11 years old! Her posts are quite mature, could have a prodigy on our hands!

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Good evening to you too Dear <morfishine> !

Yes I saw she was only elleven, and that was one of the reasons I tried to encourage her. And her posts are very mature.
Very interesting if CG harbours a prodigy.

  morfishine: Good evening Dear <moronovich>! I just had a rousing 960 game with a 1900 player and the reason I'm reporting it is I slipped and lost, but not slipped by a blunder, I slipped with the mouse!

But I wasn't upset and realized I thoroughly enjoyed the encounter, I guess thats the point, if one finally has a strong game, then the hunt is on, thats whats fun

Nov-14-20

  moronovich: Good evening Dear <morfishine> !

That is what I call good inner sportsmanship !

Sometimes the result is not the most important,as in your case.

  moronovich: <morf>

Your story reminds me about another story from Frans of Assissi which ends with some disciples in the front of a monastery in a rainy cold and stormy nigth asking for shelter among the monks.But the monks throw apples,potatoes and rotten tomatoes after our discipels.No shelter definately.

"But can you thank God in this very moment,then you know what real love is" was Fransīs point.

  morfishine: <moronovich> Very interesting story about the monastery, but sounds like those monks can be a tough crowd

  morfishine: Well Dear <moronovich> I can hardly wait to try out my new fishing reel. On my last excursion, a 'gear tooth' broke so I could not lock or set my reel. I bought a new reel and its very smooth, but I haven't had an opportunity to try it out, maybe Friday or the weekend
Nov-24-20

  moronovich: Hi <morf> !

Sounds great ! That is what I call reel life :)

Wish I could be there...

All my best to you and your family.

  morfishine: Dear <moronovich> I am a big believer in 'hobbies', one must have those things that he loves to do once all responsible chores are satisfied, whether its reading or fishing or playing chess or woodcraft or model making...doesn't really matter

Blocking things out to do what one loves is the key

I just wish I were a better fisherman, but thats offset by the joy of the outdoors and smelling and breathing clean, ocean air

I wholeheartedly agree !

When I was a kid I could sit for hours and just watching the clouds....Also the flowers and the bees. Later playing football till the sun went down.
