Mischa ... what exactly is 'withdraw'? I know it means he ain't playing, but isn't there meant to be an apology or something or a clarification of the result?

I appreciate James is a child and you have concerns as his mum, but seriously - its just not good enough to say well played but we're off.

Bereaved
01-01-2007, 10:53 PM
Howard,

If I may be so bold as to interject in a game that you and James were playing on this site, it seems that the fact that James is unable to play is owing to the need for him to focus on studying music and the concomittant practice involved, And as such I would guess you can choose what you believe the result of the game to be. As most, if not all, of the games on this site are played under some form of time control, if at the very worst upon James not making a move for a week or so, you can claim the game on time. Or, just maybe, you could say that a young boy, doesn't have time to finish the game and the game is just stopped, and not to be resumed,

And ultimately, you as we all do, will make whatever decision you wish, and draw whatever conclusion you like, it just doesn't make it a fact by that manifestation of belief

Take care and God Bless, Macavity

Basil
01-01-2007, 11:01 PM
Thanks for your input mac. I'm not worried about the result. I'm more concerned with the behaviour. There are correct ways to do things. Mischa's wasn't one of them.

Mischa's wasn't one of them.i think mischa was doing her best in a tricky situation,its quite possible that she is not entirely aware of precise chess etiquette(ie .offer to withdraw rather than postpone)......i suggested we simply complete our game when james is next free.

Howard, it's clear to me from the "well done" that she's resigning the game on his behalf and you win.

Hi Mish

I think it would have been best to PM with a reason - certainly I would have done so. Failing that, as I said in the shoutbox, a certain clarity either as to the result or the way forward with future play, or a request to abort.

If we were talking about an adult game, the situation would have been much clearer - one simply doesn't say "I'm off" - there has to be some resolution or direction, ie
- I have to vist Black Rock - can we do this in a month?
- Studies have started, looks like you/ me winning, can we call a draw or whatever.

I concede you said "James has too much on his plate", but it was only days ago that he had nothing to do - "get this kid off my back!!", starting multiple games etc.. Further, we'd just had the discussion about the expense of the Aus Champs and but for that expense, James might have been there. Further again, it is January 1st - not really the busy time of the year. As a parent I understand things can change in an instant, but as I have said, I would given a PM.

But just to say (you speaking for James) I'm off didn't cut it for me then and doesn't cut it for me now. Let's not have a falling out over it. If you review the shoutbox history, you will see that I made my point and I said I would drop it before the matter was escalated.

Both your friends Sampson and Pyke had BB casualties yesterday; one with a permanent ban and one with apology to me over some hypocisy. They were itching for a reason and your "leaving" the game provided them with one. Both of these tragics were flapping around in seconds - hardly conducive to yoou and me working it out. I'm not sure why you offered to wake James up - that was just silly wasn't it? So with all that going on I thought it best I sign off.

I stand by what I have said as I would hate to see another game abandoned in that manner. However the only reason it has got to this is because of outside influence. An instructive 5 minutes is spent reviewing that shoutbox history and noting the stoking of the flames.

I don't think I was harsh on you. I do think resolution has to come when one player wants to leave. And I do think you had a couple of options in that regard.

That's my opinion finished. I value Axiom's opinion and he says you were trying to do the best in a difficult situation - I'm prepared to leave the matter there on good terms if you are. And certainly no need for James to be upset. It's all good James.

And Howard thought that after playing the Lebo there were no more tricks to be learnt.

Who is ahead in the game? If A5 is taken does white have comeback?

HD, are you getting wins in these games??

It's a very strange looking position and rather difficult to get one's head around but I reckon white is better.

If James is also in a iffy position in Axiom game then I am getting suspicious - reminds me of that girl at school who could not attend because her front gate at home was jammed.

If only Rincewind would also get lockjaw

Basil
02-01-2007, 05:04 PM
I plugged my position into a box last night (while the tragics were inventing a backstory and creating various diversions). I played my intended gameplan and white has a quickish win.

As I suggested in the game, 22.Nb3 Qd3 (comp says this is black's best). White swaps queens and gets the minor pieces to the queen side in very short order picking up more than one pawn. Blacks pieces take an age to get going and the game is lost before the bishops see daylight.

Most players could do it themselves on autopilot.

You mean Howard played the Possum and not the Tromp?? It is obvious that young Morris needs to read your signing off line - something about forced wins?

I am transferring this to Scandals thread - well well!
