Game 2, I'm black, queen's rook is missing. At the very end when he lost his queen he had only a few seconds left.

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 win 100% of the time in this bet' -curtains




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?




See, chess is not without the aspect of bad players not knowing they're bad. If durrr never played a rated tournament or played extensively online to get a feel of where he is at, and just beat up on his buddies, he probably has little idea of how good or bad he is.

Thanx!

What were time controls, or was this the one that was 45 min per side?

The final game is being played right now, right? I was about to suggest some moves but that would be shady as hell if there are still games to be played.

What would have been the right handicap for this to be an even match? Minus the Q? Minus a Rook and pawn?

No its over. Time control was 60 minutes per side, but he didn't actually lose on time if he went over, he simply had to pay $333 per every minute extra he used. He got down to a few minutes/seconds both games but never actually went over.

Many times the pawn in front of the removed rook is starts pushed, in this case it would start at A6, so durrr had a slightly bigger advantage than normal rook odds.

A queen feels like way too much, cuz even if durrr is inexperienced he's naturally intelligent enough to figure things out. I'd say 2 minor pieces. Usually in games like this rook odds is actually better, because the better player has one less minor piece to use and immediately rush to seize the initiative.

Yeah, I just noticed that it was game 2 and didn't even see game 1 already posted.
