any of you chess pros have a site that you recreate games on? i dont want to have to dig through my closet to find my old board and the stuff coming up in google are 1 on 1 games.




Google winboard/xboard. Free software that does the trick nicely.

Out of 100 random club players, I would probably beat only around 20, but I still quite sure I would beat Curtains if he would play without a rook (my brother is about that level and I would beat him), but I think that I would be a favourite against Durrrr with a rook less, with a knight less I would crush him. The big difference is really between club players and sunday players, the best sunday players that beat all their friends and relatives etc. usually get crushed when they join a club, you don't remove all your easily exploitable mistakes until you regularily play people that know how to exploit them.

cool bet
the only way i think durr or anyone else in his position would have a chance is to make it blitz, and hope that the GM you're playing is a blitz fish (fish being relative to his normal time abilities) and you are a well above average speed chess player. or...... if durrr were to play with no piece advantage, but curtains had to play blind, in a G/45 scenario, that would be cool.

i'm somewhere around 1600 uscf last time i played and have taken down players 2000+ at G/30 and below, but above i'd get slowly, painfully demolished, G/45 is enough for curtains to do just that - and i think ppl who think getting a pawn, knight, or even rook's advantage against a GM is a cinch win are out of their minds

Curtains would give up very little playing blind. But don't tell durrrr.

Strong players actually pwn harder at blitz - skill differences become magnified - they still see most of what they would see anyway, and the weak player doesn't see much of anything. But don't tell durrrr.

Totally off topic but has anyone heard about a chess game between A known poker player that i think was Ram Vaswani and a well known Grand Master. The rumor i heard was they bet 100,000 and ram got 10-1. The rest of the rumor was that ram used an ear piece linked to a computer that had not lost ever in simulation. Obviously ram whips the GM and questions about how its possible for a poker player to beat a GM. Well i heard they caught known poker player with the ear piece and found out what happened. Pretty crazy if true. Any real info on if this actually occured and the actual players involved would be great! Again i have no actual knowledge if this is true just a rumor i heard

Well he had to get the moves to the computer somehow, I heard it was by having a chessboard grid on the inside of the roof of his mouth, and there were sensors for each square, and he had his tongue sharpened, and each tooth represented a different chess piece. Sick, if true.
