Wow this is a disaster, I can't believe anyone would do this. I thought Durrr was Jewish?

Play on www.chessbase.com, the software is a million times better and it's well known everyone uses a comp on Yahoo.

Interesting thread. I play loads of new people all the time and they usually have a story about how they are the best amongst there group of friends. I tell them I'm awful Which is true (rated around 1900 Auschess), but relative to them most games aren't difficult. Funny how easy it is to consider yourself a good player when you haven't actually played some of club level or above.

Out of interest, how long do you think it would take someone of high intelligence to beat a GM or similar rated player with Rook odds? I'd hazard a guess and say 2 - 4 weeks of 12 hours daily study should be more than enough, maybe even one week if there a fast learner with a good teacher.

Curtains, you know nothing about chess. I would crush you if we made this bet. I play in the park by my house all the time and basically never lose.




You "basically" never lose? Curtains has never lost.

i dont know about all this chess mumbo jumbo, but clearly durrr missed the move where he doubles the bet with raptor, then in secret offers curtains 10 or 15k to dump the match.

2-4 weeks of daily study shouldn't be close to enough on average, not even remotely in the ballpark, assuming you are talking about a rank beginner.
