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

Granted I'm not a 1700 player anymore, but I'm quite sure when I was, I would have beaten curtains at his present strength 95%+ of the time with rook odds.




Find yourself a legitimate 1700 player and if I can talk curtains into it (or find a player of almost equivalent strength), perhaps we'll make ourselves a bet. Not for 50k (necessarily, depends how stupid you're willing to be), but maybe 5k.

Hell, if you think someone like that would win 95% of the time, you can give ME odds .

What was the time control on the durr/curtains match, anyone know?


"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."


That's completely wrong, and I frankly can't comprehend how you could even begin to think that's true even if you're a fair beginner at chess. The concepts of opening, middlegame, and endgame can hardly even be used in such a game, rook odds skew the game far too much to properly define what those really mean in an odds game.
