Re: Borislav Ivanov: a Lilov's add-on

... But here are 2 anecdotes about unusually good performances: I used to bowl and I am something like a 130 average bowler, basically I suck at it. I visited my younger brother from out of state many years ago who has a little bit of a younger brother inferiority complex (the older brother usually...

You could always go to a women's chess club/tournament. You do not understand the games anyway, do you?!

Re: Incredible finish to Candidates tournament

... This is no conspiracy theory. And my proof is my brain. I can think for my self. But not very well. Your thinking processes are flawed to the extreme. “ It is the brain, the little gray cells on which one must rely. One must seek the truth within--not without." H. Poirot Even Anand stated about...

Re: Incredible finish to Candidates tournament

Against all expectations, Carlsen and Kramnik both lost in the last round. Carlsen has the better tiebreak so will be Anand's challenger for the World Championship. --Jon This was a fantastic tournament. I enjoyed it a lot. Great games, excellent coverage on the organizers webpage. Tension till the...

Re: German book help?

Hello, A collegaue is retiring and I want to buy a German chess book for him as a gift. I do not know how well he knows chess so I need a book that will be useful for both a beginner and an expert if he turns out to be a club player. 1001 Deadly Checkmates by Nunn, Lehrbuch der Schacktaktik by Mart...

Re: Probably a Goodbye...

..or probably not.. Look Fern, it is already bad enough that you did not sign up yet for my campaign where I'm running for the Pope position in the Vatican (see my thread in CTF).

Re: How Much Is Hiarcs 14 worth?

Someone who actually has experience with this in correspondence Chess (Uly on Rybkaforum) tells a completely different story, though. Accoring to him Houdini is virtually useless, because it initially produces moves that, although winning in blitz, are losing in correspondence Chess. By the time (m...

Re: How Much Is Hiarcs 14 worth?

Hiearcs 14 is worth 0 Euro/US dollars. Why should someone buy so weak engine, when much stronger Houdini or Stockfish is available for free... hiarcs plays different than atockfish or houdini. its good for analysis. Playing differently is no reason to buy. I play very differently compared to Houdin...

Hi all, I'm currently looking to address some question regarding the time-consumption in chess, e.g.: a.) How much time do player take in specific openings? E.g. does an average Sicilian Dragon takes longer than an average Benko Gambit etc..? b.) Correlation of the time that is left with the error r...
