Move every 7 days. Sheez one trip a week to an internet cafe isn't too much to ask for!

Thanks ggraygray - I'd definitely like to play.

I'd also prefer a faster time control - perhaps 40 moves in 40 days to keep it moving along.

Having said that - I'll play under whatever rules are in place.

Rule #1 - No hypnotising!
Rule #2 - Unsound sacrifices by Queenslanders may be taken back.
Rule #3 - Howard is allowed two rooks on h1 at the start of play as he is prone to carelessly discard one of them inside of the first ten moves.
Rule #4 - Ditto for Q-bishops.

Barring illness or unforseen circumstances I would imagine most of us could average one move per day.:hmm:

If we told you, you'd only ask gain.
If we told you, you'd (pretend to) not understand.

So in the interests of clarity, we won't tell you :)

Rule 1.
(a) states :- don't play twice with the same cheat
(b) states:- learn from your mistakes
(c) states:- you were sucked in

And I hope that this clarified things for you too.

And I eternally glad that you did not respond to the fast worker quip, that is for Watto.

I shall show my hand after I get two questions answered:
a. how come KerryS is in only the middle of ratings table and a lowly-rated player is near the top
b. how many games and moves to make a week?
c. when will David HIcks and Starter be freed?

c. when will David HIcks and Starter be freed?

a) Because Garvin's ratings points have come from a tournament which permitted all players to use computer analysis. Garvin and his box performed well in that tournament.

b) Number of games per week will depend on entries. It is being suggested that each player will have to make one move per game per week (minimum).

There are the two answers you requested.

For (a) I suggest you look at Chesschat Tournament number 3. Kerry made two bad blunders in the games against me. I expect he gives these games less attention than others do.
For (b) there was 12 games at once.

I leave (c) to others.

Thanks for explano re computer use - only took about 4 posts to get proper response - KB tried to tell me that at CC GG was a miracle-worker. I still don't know why KerryS is only in middle of table thereabouts.

I still want to give those who have not happened to log in during the last day a chance to enter.

Therefore, if we get more than 8, it will be single round robin. If we go SRR, I will make sure we have an odd number of entries so everyone gets the same number of whites and blacks.

Time controls:

I think the 40 days + 1 move per day increment move rate would be good, except that it seems difficult to update and maintain without use of a specific server.

I proposed the 1 move per week as it was used in the previous tournaments. Players are of course free to make many moves per day if they wish.

Dear all participants,

Please make sure that the moves you make are legal and that the notation is accurate.

It has been noted that this has not been done in some games so far. It is inconsiderate to your opponent to tender illegal moves, either through incorrect notation or the actual playing of an illegal move.

If you are in doubt as to the position in the game, use the pgn viewer.

I am trying to think of appropriate penalties for playing illegal moves.

Dear Chess friends
I, hereby, would like to notify you all about my decision to withdraw from all my games of this CC tournament.
The reasons are:
1) From where I post I do not have a proper Chess board to analyse my positions so I have to rely on the interactive board on which you cannot move pieces and reconstruct positions.
2) I still have not fully recovered from the back injuries I suffered since a fall last week. I am getting better though.
3) I currently am involved in a heavy scheduled training and playing OTB Chess ie
3a. Tournament games at BHCC on Tuesdays and Fridays
3b. Following GM Darryl Johansen's lectures every second Sunday at BHCC.
3c. Getting intensive training by FM Michael Baron on a weekly basis.
It is not that I am underestimating CC or that I give it less importance than all those other Chess activities I have just mentioned. On the contrary, I have found it very challenging and very hard to tackle. Further continuation of my playing in this tournament would only deprive it of the standard and interest it really deserves.
It was a great pleasure playing with you and thank you all for your understanding and consideration.
I hope you understand my position and justify my decision to withdraw from the tournament.
With kind regards
Elliott D. Renzies

I am sure all of these excuses are valid - but quitting still says something about the underlying character.

I know both of your positions against me are reasonably resignable - I suspect you have some difficult positions in your other games as well.

Things are always harder and less enjoyable when this is the case.

But hey - I've got some character flaws too.

Basil
13-02-2007, 09:11 PM
Hi Sunshine

I'd stake a fair bit on HK's character. I'm fortunate enough to have the advantage over you there.

Now, here's the interesting bit ... do you have sufficient belief in my character and judgment to accept my judgment of his! :P

Kevin Bonham
13-02-2007, 09:18 PM
I wonder if Glenno will rate these games or not. Since it is only a voluntary rating system on a BB I will defend whatever decision he takes, but I would be inclined to rate all those where the opponent has any sort of advantage (at least) as won by the opponent.

Re the reasons given for withdrawal:

1) He had every opportunity to be aware of his playing conditions before starting the tournament. In any case I assume there are programs available where you can move pieces around, although I can't vouch for their usability.

2) Any participant has the right to request a 14-day vacation so he could have taken a medical timeout for a while.

3) He probably had a fair idea of his commitments before starting the event.

Possibly it would be better if he said he was resigning each game to make it clear that each should be counted as a win to the opponent, rather than just removing himself from the tournament.

As for Howard, at the current rate of withdrawals he has this one on a platter!

(Or perhaps he's trying to emulate the example of the English cricket team. :doh: )

Sunshine
13-02-2007, 09:20 PM
Character only gets revealed in those "out of your comfort zone" situations.

I don't want to pass any judgement on heaviestknight in total.
Those who know him better will no doubt already have a firm opinion and are in a better position to judge.

All I'm saying is a little insight into the character is revealed in every decision you make.

I also didn't want the games to end without bragging about my positions - so that says something about me.

Basil
13-02-2007, 09:26 PM
Kevin & Sunshine

My assessment of Elliott's character stands (in cement). I also agree with what you have both said. All these perspectives can sit comfortably together.

A couple of clarifications:
- Elliott did resign in my game
- Elliott couldn't have foreseen a fall (not in the playing conditions ;))
- Elliott will have to speak for himself, but I'm certain he would agree to any ruling on the outcome from the arbiter, whether it be a determination of the position or a forfeit.

Sunshine, you may not have seen it, but in a recent game I had with Elliott (where he was arguably better), he accidentally touched the 'go' button on his game viewer, at which point the computer suggested a good move. Elliott immediately resigned the game!! :eek: I thought this anecdote might assist in determining an action against character ;)

Sunshine
13-02-2007, 09:35 PM
Howard,

My first and second inclinations were to say nothing or to provide my sympathy or some other meaningless platitude.

But 3 a), b) and c) sort of cancelled all that out.

Obviously access to a board is not a real issue and the injuries are not impacting all the other chess committments.

But, largely I don't really care - but now that I've spoken I guess there is no reasonable way for me to get out of the hidings Boris is about to give me.

ER
13-02-2007, 09:35 PM
I have taken all responsibility for my action to withdraw. I have apologised to all concerned. During my play I tried to do my best according to my abilities in an honest and dignified way. The way things are now it is impossible for me to continue playing in this tournament and I am willing to face the music, but please spare me of the character evaluation sermons. It goes a little too far don't you think?
Cheers and good luck to all!
PS and yes I accept the fact that I should have resigned individually on every game, which I mistakenly thought that I did by posting to each of my opponents my withdrawal statement. I also accept that most of my positions were resignable and I would have lost the games anyway.

Thanks again for your support mate! It means a lot to me!


..... and hopefully my comments mean nothing to you (I think you should have added that bit).

Good luck with your chess development and recovery (which is probably what I should have said first up).

As for you and Boris, you are both truly evil monstrosities

Well I'm fairly rusty - but I'm really surprised at how I can't predict my opponents next move. I do a reasonable amount of analysis but constantly find the actual reply played a surprise (sometime a pleasant surprise I must say - but never with Boris).

Is this how life is over the board ?

Boris is truly insidious OTB as well ;)

... I accept the fact that I should have resigned individually on every game, which I mistakenly thought that I did by posting to each of my opponents my withdrawal statement.
I just checked. You did resign in every game, so don't sweat it.


I also accept that most of my positions were resignable and I would have lost the games anyway
Damn straight big fella! I just checked that too! -10 and -5.

I suppose you're going to gang up with the Baron and fix me now!

Come to think of it, Axiom's insidious as well. What the hell have I done to deserve you lot!?

As a neutral onlooker, I'd say at a quick look that HK is in totally resignable positions in both games against Howard, clearly lost positions in both games against Sunshine and one against Boris, a somewhat shaky position in one game against Axiom, a good position in one game against Boris, and the other three are all too early to tell.

Well, I assume you have followed the thread and appreciate the humour intended. That said, let me try and concoct a valid theory ;)

insidious adj. Working or spreading harmfully in a subtle or stealthy manner: insidious rumors; an insidious disease.

You post links to 'The Real Truth' type we-sites
You use the word Axiomatic :eek:
You win chess games with The Possum
You've been known to say nice things about me (any right-minded person knows that can't be right) ;)

Apologies Zig. I recall playing 13...c6 immediately after you made your move.

Clearly I have made a posting error and not completed the post correctly. Thanks for the nudge.

I have noticed that Axiom is currently having an enforced layoff.
I am happy to wait for him,both of his positions against me look favourable to me,might give him more time to think about defenses though.:)

I know I have already a bad record on the CC board. Does that exclude me of future tournament or individual games participation?
I promise I will stay on and will not withdraw this time!
Cheers and good luck!

Hi Heaviestknight,

For individual games you just put out a challenge and wait to see who accepts.

For tournaments you just wait until the next one starts and then indicate you want to play.

I don't think there is a black book anywhere (however, don't be waiting on any acceptances from me).

I will start calling for interest from participants in a couple of weeks for those that want to play in cc tournament 5.
