against the dutch play Bg5 and you get an easy game (see jiri's book). Against the caro kann you can try the fantasy variation (like ivanchuk at the olympiad).
oracle when i agree and shaman otherwise.
as well as Nelsons wise advice in mickey mouse games. Bg5 may well be best move.
Really? I always pictured him as a drug lord...
as for openings...catalan and najdorf are what i aim for, lopez is what i always avoid.
1. Your rant is among the best ever posted to this site. It's definitely a keeper.
2. I can assure you, if I saw an alien, I would be dogmatically telling people about it in a highly persuasive manner. After a while, I would be like the guy in the 1956 version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", with that crazed, harried, exhausted look at the end of the movie. I don't think I could go to work the next day. For that matter, I think I would quit my job, explaining to my boss "what, you think I'm crazy? I think you're crazy! There are freaking aliens invading the planet! You think I ought to calm down and work on next year's budget? You must be mad! Mad!" Around that point security might be showing up and I would tell them, "get your hands off me, you moron! Don't you see? Don't you see there are freaking aliens among us? Hey! Cut it out or I'll cold-cock you, you son of a bitch! Don't you--uhh!" (shouts, grunts, crashing furniture) At that point, undoubtedly, the cops would be called and I would repeat my story to them with a look of wild intensity and urgency.
But you would be saved by the aliens ofcourse, putting all non believers to shame!
> in over 3 years i have found no fault with his grammar and he is a Mexican bandit i believe.
Well, to be fair Vempele was very strict when correcting my mistakes, one day was truly shocking because he made be believe a word I used didn't exist in English!
I used the word "improvable" while I meant "improbable", and instead of telling me about the mistake (e.g. the b for v switch), he told me what I said was wrong, that I didn't mean "Capable of being improved", and that I should have used "unprovable" (can't be proven), but that was not what I meant, I meant to say "unlikely"! So I picked my dictionary and looked up "improvable" and "unprovable", and neither meant what I wanted, so I assumed the word didn't exist.
Only later on I told him I was thinking about Spanish's "improbable" that meant "unlikely", and that's when he told me it was the same in English, so that's when I realized it , that was a great lesson, so that I'll never, ever confuse those three words again. I've always have such lessons since the beginning (circa 2000) and always thank the Internet Grammar Police for their corrections that help me improve my English
As for being a bandit, or drug lord, such things are extremely lucrative, so I'd have a computer farm and hire Vas to build special versions of Rybka for my personal use, so, nope, am not
> It's true that you Brits are much better at delivering subtle insults than we are!
>>Nelson's wise advice?! One day I am a bookmaker-charlatan and the next I am an oracular shaman!
As long as they don't call you 'Paul the octupus'. Whoops I meant "Nelson the octupus".
1. e4 c5
2. c3 Nf6
3. e5 Nd5
4. d4 cxd4
5. Bc4 (with the idea of a possible gambit line after ...Nb6 Bb3 dxc3)
After Qc7 white could try Qe2, or a computer idea of: 6. Bb3 Qxe5+ 7. Ne2 e6 8. cxd4 Qh5
> to prove a lot of GM play is crap
It goes without saying, really. But I think this is in the process of changing, and massive computer power is behind it. Problem is, there are human limits to what you can absorb and use in practice.
