Re: Finally I beat OpenTal, BUT...

Great resume Brendan. I tend to think every where world is going to that model where a caste of politicians ans technicians handle things and let people enjoy his lives as they wish, provided they do not agitate the waters. Democracy with so many groups asking what they believe is his due is too muc...

Re: Finally I beat OpenTal, BUT...

Brendan, how it is you went to China, live and work there? Curious.
And how good is to live there?
I have a bad impression of a country with so many people, farting openly, eating dogs and speaking and awful language-
Of course, all this is subjective and perhaps primitive, but there you have it

Re: Finally I beat OpenTal, BUT...

You have ME and many many more. I am a solitary guy, with no taste for gatherings of any kind. Besides, computers does not fart, expel smoke, look at you with derision, get angry, etc. Even your best friend get full of vanity and think he is smarter than you if he win you and the same if he lose, he...

Re: Finally I beat OpenTal, BUT...

well, I have had my successes too, in fact I won a tourn years ago. The opposition was in average around 1900 or so and in those years I was 1950 or so.

Re: Finally I beat OpenTal, BUT...

Man, no apologies needed. I already know you as a decent, nice guy. I was just trying to show the great variety of chess players that are in this world. Many years ago I hired an IM to teach me something. He was a lovely guy, Carlos Jauregui, one of the few that ever defeated Fisher, game of his som...

Re: New Lucas Big Bug, not Big bang

well, not that indifferent because a program which is settled to play X moves in that fixed time does lose the game due to time.

In any case, Lucas, a marvelous Gui.
