    Rosario's Blog Discussion 101

    Tuesday, July 26, 2005

    As for Article 1.2, I am hoping and praying, to any god who'll listen, that our arbiters will keep their heads screwed on and not be bludgeoned into submission by such a ridiculous rule. Apparently, capturing the king destroys evidence of an illegal move. But most sane people, and I'm talking 99.9% here, accept that capturing the king is itself the very evidence required. What's the problem?

    A/C
    The person capturing the king could also be carrying out an illegal move and how could you prove it is illegal if it is already off the board? Work that one out!
    (Maybe should be left for next semister)

    How Good Is Your Coach?
    I heard somewhere that the average player is rated 1600. I don't know if that's true or not. But I also hear that there are coaches who are rated well below that figure. It makes you wonder what their students are learning. Seems almost like the blind leading the blind. Could these below average coaches tell the difference between a King's Indian Defence and, say, the Pirc? And don't just say it's the c4-pawn!

    For me, I am yet to be convinced that under 2000-rated players have any business coaching. Some folks will say communications skills are important. But if you don't know what you're talking about, then you have nothing to communicate. Have you?

    Over two years ago, Man of Controversy, Matt Sweeney, proposed a National Chess Coaching Accreditation Scheme. I wonder what's happening with that.

    Now AR you are having a go at me here, good luck to you and I don't mind at all. I rise to the challenge. We all understand you must keep your blog going after the big issues have fizzled out.

    I took up teaching or coaching in request of a school. Our first tourney out we defeated the "B" team of an expensive private school which had a prominent chess player as a coach (ex-champ). And did he come down heavy on them.

    AC's rating at this time - NEVER HAD PLAYED A COMP GAME IN HIS LIFE.

    Chess coaching was my first attempt at trying to teach anything - the pro teacher looking on comments: YOU ARE A BETTER TEACHER THAN I WILL EVER BE!

    And it went on and on from there. I agree I could be the exception.

    And as you know when the finals come I take the students along to champs for THE REAL THING.

    DO YOU KNOW THAT ONE OF MY STUDENTS WON THE AWARD FOR MOST IMPROVED IN THE WHOLE STATE, HIS PHOTO WAS IN JCL MAGAZINE - WHAT WAS MY RATING? DON'T ASK IT'S EMBARRASSING!

    GO PICK ON SOMEONE ELSE E.F.G.S. (ask Jenni what it means)

    Well, if you can't figure it out - then you're a dope! But seriously, there's nothing to figure out if both players are honest. Then again, you're a lebo.

    Yeah, the silly buggers are into backgammon, which is only glorified ludo.

    One Lebo chessplayer went to France and become a grandmaster.

    And they leave you people for dead in letting off carbombs.

    Hold on a minute, with Lebo's population of only a few million it has a higher rate of grandmasters per million than both Aussie and Philippines - take that AR!

    One is lives in France, maybe registered as a frog but Lebo brainpower and libido.

    Some high Russian(?) woman married a Lebo and does well - remember.

    And I got one over you in the Article 8.1 thread. And the chap who sabotaged Agulto's justice of board replacement was a Lebo - take that EFGS!

    As illuminating as all this is for the rest of us, should it really be done in public? If so, I can't really see what business it has being in the chess related forum.
    In a moment of time, too short to be measured, space turned and twisted upon itself.

    It started off as chess but took the wrong turn at the round-a-bout.

    Mod, transfer to Non-chess if you like

    Seems to mostly have something to do with chess, it's just very trashy.
