Also, how does Curtains rate his edge in this game?

Did Durr ever have a chance or did he just bet 60k drawing stone dead....

I had a feeling.... That's some pretty sick [censored]. 0% chance of beating an IM down a rook. And he originally wanted to play a GM down a knight... What convinced him that this was in any way feasible?

Is durrrr actually any good at chess, or does he just like betting on stuff?

you really have to be quite bad at chess to ever lose with a rook advantage against anyone. just play defensively and force a bunch of trades -- they don't all even have to be even -- and you'll be unstoppable in the endgame. this is why chess is a terrible game to handicap -- a single pawn advantage would be enough to make any competitive player a favorite against the top gm's in the world.

I don't think your average Simon Sundayplayer has a chance against an IM even with rook odds, so yeah, this was pretty awful for durr.

I think I could at least draw, probably win, an IM if I had rook odds.
