|Sep-27-03|| ||ughaibu: Eric Knoppert is famous for a time trouble trick of knocking his clock off the table and adding a couple of minutes one-handedly when picking it up. |
|Sep-27-03|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> That's a neat trick, how did he get away with it? |
|Sep-27-03|| ||ughaibu: The only occasion that I've directly heard of was during a shogi tournament in Holland, probably Utrecht, a spectator noticed the remaining time had increased. It's the kind of trick that it's better not to be known for. I think he's more positively famous for the number of games played continuously, or something similar, I remember seeing his name in the Guiness Book of Records. |
|Sep-29-03|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> Apart from his underhand clock antics is he any good at shogi? |
|Sep-29-03|| ||ughaibu: I've only played shogi with him once, I think it was in 1982 when I was pretty much a beginner myself. I dont remember much about the game except that the endgame was very open so I didn't think I'd be able to mate however we were both in byouyomi (30 seconds a move after normal time has been used up) and eventually he let me win. As far as I recall he had quite a nice style. |
|Sep-29-03|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> "byouyomi" sounds like a nasty disease. What are the time controls in shogi? |
|Sep-30-03|| ||ughaibu: I think the time control in the tournament where I played E.K. was 40 minutes then 30 seconds per move. In higher class professional shogi using less than one minute is counted as "no time", so when a player has used all their time they can survive by playing withing the minute. Top title matches are played at 9 hours each and last 2 days. Shogi professionals dont use clocks, the score-keeper uses a stopwatch to record the time. "Byou" means "second(s)" and "yomi" means "read", the score-keeper counts down the seconds according to the player's preference during the no-time-minute. |
|Sep-30-03|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> Is that 9 hours for just one game? |
|Sep-30-03|| ||ughaibu: 9 hours each plus byouyomi. |
|Sep-30-03|| ||Benzol: <ughaibu> Sounds like you need stamina and fitness as well as being a better player to win. |
|Feb-15-04|| ||Benzol: Between 9.19 on Friday 13 September 1985 and 5.17 on Monday 16, Erick G.J. Knoppert (born 20th Sep 1959 Netherlands) scored 82.6% against an average Elo 2000 and completed 500 games.
Nice to know he did something else besides clock fiddling. |
