Me. I can't promise excellent quality but I will try my best. I play with three days for a move.

If you're interested, then my move is 8.Ne2.
Parent - - By Moz (****) Date 2011-09-17 18:05
Thanks for accepting. I'll move in a day or two. I prefer to play these games with a flexible time control so some moves may take longer to make than others (i.e. depending on my schedule, critical positions etc.)

Three days isn't strict rule, so you can be flexible. If you need, you're free to use much more time. :)

So hard already? :smile: Or busy?
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2011-09-20 23:24
He must be very busy, he hasn't played a move in my Halloween challenge for a while, and hasn't started his new game against NATIONAL12.

Ok. No problem.
Parent - - By Moz (****) Date 2011-09-21 01:51
Sorry for the delay.  I'm in the middle of a cutthroat WC semi-final tournament and two of my opponents did something unexpected on the very same day so I haven't had enough spare CPU cycles to devote to Rybka forum games.

If you don't mind my asking, what are your thoughts on the game thus far?
Parent - - By zaarcis (**) [lv] Date 2011-10-31 16:08 Edited 2011-10-31 17:21
13. Bd6 was better move, imho, but with no changes in the result. It would be drawn anyway.
Also I believe now that Marshall gambit is boring opening because white can't escape from exchanging his queen.

> Also I believe now that Marshall gambit is boring opening because white can't escape from exchanging his queen.


For the record, 8.Be2 leads to much more entertaining engine assisted games.  In retrospect, I should have made that the starting point.
Parent - By zaarcis (**) [lv] Date 2011-10-31 19:21
You're right.
(Okay, then all i said is about 8.Ne2.)
- - By zaarcis (**) [lv] Date 2011-11-10 14:55
What do you say about draw (and new game with Be2)?
Parent - - By Moz (****) Date 2011-11-10 19:20
Declined. I have a small chance to actually win.  I'm traveling and won't be home for a couple more days so I won't be moving until then.
Parent - By zaarcis (**) [lv] Date 2011-11-10 22:18
Ok. :)
