Hello Dear Friends,

Not as exciting you say???

Round: X
White: [Alex]
Black: Davies, Reece

I would be ashamed to have that in my swindle collection, and that's saying something. :wall: :wall: :wall:

7.Bc4 is an underrated line against the CK although it gets stodgy if Black knows what to do. Most blacks don't so I am quite happy playing this line. If you're really lucky some goose plays 7...h6 which is the standard reply to 7.h4 but loses in the line 7.Bc4 h6 8.Ne5! +- - a trap well worth knowing but rarely played.

White is winning for most of the game (I think Black should have played 11...Na5) and generally plays pretty well until 28.Kh2?? which I don't see the point of at all.

In the ending White should play 35.Rg7+ Kh8 36.Rgf7 which should draw. 37...Rg1 would have been an easy win for Black who instead walks into an obvious mate in 3.

I want my money back!

So much for the 7/7 and tournament win claims.

AO, why don't you post a game versus a player rated higher than yourself where you actually outplayed him/her? Does such a game exist? These unsound combos and cheap swindles in losing positions only prove that you are a patzer.

I dont think AO can actually do this in a classical rated tournament. The reason being is that he is generally over rated :owned: Therefore he loses early on in a swiss tournament and then only receives players rated below him :whistle:

For instance, at the Qld Open, AO started with a rating of 1703 and did not play any opponent rated above him.

6...Nf6 is a mistake, black must play 6...Nd7. In the game white should continue 7.h4 h6 7.Ne5 Bh7 8.Bc4 e6 9.Qe2 with advantage and posibility of strong attack.

Hi Kevin,


7.Bc4 is an underrated line against the CK although it gets stodgy if Black knows what to do. Most blacks don't so I am quite happy playing this line. If you're really lucky some goose plays 7...h6 which is the standard reply to 7.h4 but loses in the line 7.Bc4 h6 8.Ne5! +- - a trap well worth knowing but rarely played.

I don't see how this is a trap though, it simply doubles Black's pawns.

I do, however, agree that Kh2 deserves a ?. I was seeing threats which weren't there, and I also had a swollen ankle caused by playing soccer in the field behind the tournament hall between rounds.

Hi George,

Pumpkin-Head!

I just looked up your rating mate, and its 1749!. The ! means that its the highest ACF you've ever had, and because I have held (within the past 12 months) a higher ACF than yourself it means that you in fact are the patzer - not that there's anything wrong with being a patzer.

Now, apart from that I will indulge your trolling by referring you to the following post.

Garvin,

Your analysis, as usual, is WRONG!!!!!!

Like Zorro, when faced with strong opponents I play strong chess, and the converse is, unfortunately, also true.

As such, maybe you are half correct! :clap:

Hi AO, I believe the the ! after the rating is an indication of how reliable that rating is given recent rated games rather than an indication of the highest rating a person has achieved. (Your June 2006 rating has an ! after it. ;) ).

Firstly, the "!" after a rating does not mean that at all. Secondly, you're wrong, my rating has been higher. Thirdly, since I beat you the one time we have played (only a couple of weeks ago, in case you forgot), if you consider me a patzer, that must make you a grandpatzer.

And, for the record, I was not trolling. If you genuinely want to impress someone about your chess prowess, you should follow the instructions I gave you. If you don't understand, Grasshopper, just ask.

I don't see how this is a trap though, it simply doubles Black's pawns.

Actually I was mixing up lines because the trap I had in mind is 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Bf5 5.Ng3 Bg6 6.Nf3 h6? 7.Ne5!

However in the game line I think you will still find 7...h6 8.Ne5 gives Black more problems than just doubled pawns to deal with. The g-pawn is very easily attacked after the bishop is taken and it will be difficult for Black to avoid loss of castling rights. Might post some lines later.

I thought that you had retired from standard length chess?

This week is round 3, but the draw was done earlier, so I guess you would have to start in round 4 of a 7 round tournament.

I suspect that as we have even numbers and with AO starting from round four, Andrew would say no and tell him when the next tournament begins.

Can't be bothered but after 7...h6 8.Ne5 Fritz puts White about a pawn and a half ahead. The black kingside is a mess, black has one terrible bishop vs two good ones and the g6-pawn will be a disaster zone to defend.

Hi Boris,

If by standard length chess you mean classical then let me qualify my earlier remarks.

I am only interested in playing, as a classical time control, games that are 60 minutes plus 10 second increments, or alternatively any classical time control which is less than that.

That said, however, I could be tempted to play 90 minutes per side guillotine.

Given that The Gap tournament seems rather far along already, and I likely wouldn't be allowed to enter, I guess we will have to clash swords at another event. ;)

Oh dear. 40...Kg6?? is horrendous. 40...Kg4 is fine (though whether he could actually win with KRBN vs KR is anyone's guess). He keeps making it hard for himself after that but is still drawing until 57...Rh2+?? (57...Rh8 giving up the bishop followed by ...Re8 and black cleans up the white pawns without trouble.) Time trouble or just lousy play? I'll bet that was satisfying. :lol:

Time trouble or just lousy play? Lousy play by both sides. I had still about half an hour on the clock when the games was effectively decided and black had about 1 hour.


I'll bet that was satisfying. :lol:
The game started with [Alex] being 10 mins late. The clock was started with it being on white's right hand side. [Alex] arrived and changed the clock to black's right hand side. This meant that the times had changed to me being ten minutes down.

Alex claimed that it is black's choice as to which side the clock goes. I protested saying that it is the arbiter's decision and anyways the game has already started. Arbiter was called over (not myself :lol:) and arbiter said clock remains where it was originally.

So, to answer your question KB, yes ;)

Even if there is supposed to be some kind of general agreement on who chooses the side of the clock, the game had already started and a move made. Therefore, the clock position can't be changed without arbiter intervention.

If a person wants to haggle over the position of the clock or other matters, I think the bottom line is- turn up before the scheduled starting time.

bergil, I was quite surprised when you requested me to bring 3 more Queens the moment I got in through the door... until I saw the position on the board.

Seeing the two of you deliberately playing this out.... just beggars belief. :rolleyes:

You should have played for another 48 moves before checkmating him.... really, bergil.

You had more than enough time on your clock. :)

I would have knighted or bishoped them.

Get the full set of back rank pieces and put them back on their home squares ;)

This would have graced the pages of Australasian Chess had it ended in stalemate. :)
