Re: Chess Database with Age-Information?

Jose ( http://jose-chess.sourceforge.net/ ) can read pgn and produces a mysql database. The fide player list contains name and year of birth in a tab-separated list and should be possible to import. Eventually build a sql query somewhat like: SELECT player.playername, game.gameresult, [game]![gamey...

Re: Moron 3.0

This is a real breakthrough. You will not receive even a mail saying "hi". You will not receive nothing. It is pure and simple, a masterwork of clarity and economy of means. You just send me the money -$39 bucks- and you can at once stay calm because nothing will arrive at your mail. I thanks the m...

Re: Some suggestions

YAWN² :mrgreen: I guess this was the most boring WCh ever. Let's forget it fast... Exactly. My suggestion to FIDE is to increase the stakes for the players to give more incentives to produce entertaining chess. 1. More games. The winner should win at least 6 games. 2.

Re: Some suggestions

Was it really "boring" or has chess evolved to the point where winning in match play, at the top level, has become more difficult? We should not confuse match play with round-robin tournaments where winning and therefore taking risks, is essential to finishing in the money. Match play is such that ...

Re: Levy's interview on Chessbase about ICGA/rybka

... (1) First of all their mathematical foolishness.
