agreed. i'm happy to allow breaks if one of us has to be offline for a few days, but obviously you have to tell the other player before you disappear, not after

you're a favourite going by the ratings (i'm playing at about 2000 fide atm) so no

i'll agree to an eric schiller (who is basically a donkey) avatar for one month if I get a 0.1pt handicap in my favour (ie, if the score is 1-1, you lose)

well, white has to play e4 to shift the knight before he can play Rxc7...so e4 Nf6, Rxc7 Nxe4. material is even, pawns are even on both wings, same minor pieces, one piece developed each; centralised knight vs rook on the 7th rank. white's small advantage comes from his initiative.

made a thread for it.

@everyone else. NO COMMENTING ON A LIVE POSITION.

10 Black games / 0 Lost
I was outgraded every game, in some cases by +400pts. I scored marginally better than I should based on my shitty rating, which means I underperformed because my live rating is utter garbage...i did get one of my games published in Scottish Chess magazine though

Quote:
Wutt, 100 Pts buddy
100pts is a 63%-37% advantage.

Schiller is the worst chess author ever. He is the king of grabbing a dozen games from Informat, writing some non committal analysis ("with chances for both sides", "white is definitely not worse", etc). He is everything that is wrong with chess.

I played this one 2 months with Black. Opening is awful and I think the rest is not too bad. After 30 moves I only had 5 minutes for time control pretty tough game.
Opponent ( german rating 2070 ) is a pretty dry positional player who avoids struggle on the board, so my choice was to give him the exchange.


1.c4 e5
2.Nc3 Nf6
3.e3 d5
4.cd5 Nd5
5.a3 a5 ??
6.Nf3 Nc6
7.Qa4 Nb6
8.Qc2 Be6
9.Bb5 Bd6
10.d4 ed4
11.Nd4 00
12.Nc6 bc6
13.Bc6 Qh4
14.Qe4 Qh5
15.h3 Rab8
16.Nb5 Bc4
17.Nd4 f5
18.Qf3 Qg6
19.b3 Ba6
20.g3 Kh8
21.Bb2 a4
22.b4 Nc4
23.b5 Bb5
24.Nb5 Nb2
25.00 Be5
26.Rac1 f4
27.ef4 Bf4
28.Rb1 Be5
29.Qd5 Bf6
30.Nc7 Rb3
31.Ne6 Tfb8
32.Nf4 Qg5
33.Rfe1 Qd5
34.Nd5 Bd4
35.Kg2 Nd3
36.Rb3 ab3 omfg, horrendous
37.Rb1 Ne5
38.Nb4 b2
39.Be4 Rb6
40.f4 Nc4

now I stood up to get a smoke and after I came back his move was....

41.Rd1 Ne3

0-1

I always thought i'd be pretty good at chess if I applied myself but evidence suggests otherwise, I would be okay at speed chess with a really low timer (because I act super fast) but opponents who take forever to make their move bore me and I don't think things through properly.

@KC how did you get 'good' (relative term) at chess do you actually study game theory or is it just volume/quality of opposition?
