Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra


yeah, I followed the whole thing and it was hilarious. at my prime, I was ranked 1700-odd on yahoo chess (lol) and would probably -as a sheer guess from reading the game summary- only win maybe 3/4 against curtains with rook odds today.

lol, I'll take curtains and give you 2:1 that you don't win 3/4 games against him getting rook odds .

I don't think people realize just how strong players of his calibur are. I'm sure that against a 1700'ish player he could clog up the board, win a couple of pawns or the exchange while some minor material is being traded, and then apply enough pressure to at least get a draw 50% of the time, and probably a win 30%+ of the time.

Use of that extra rook often doesn't come into play until the end of the middle game, after some files have been cleared/pieces have been traded -- up until that point you get to bash heads with a 2600 player with a full bag of tricks, and more than capable of mating you while more than half of your material is still on the board.
