> Anton you know we left this game because of WBCCC 2012
Yes Paul, i'm absolutely fine with it... feel free to move whenever you want!
> and i dont wish to play same lines as WBCCC games.
Same lines at the same time to the running WBCCC games or in general?
In the latter case (in general) of course feel free to avoid the Gruenfeld here...
In each case have fun!

Only a little thing and meant to be helpful.
That's a good trick!
Have fun and till tomorrow.
Re-Edit (correcting typos): Thank you for your hint, i appreciate every help. I simply copy the Chessbase Light-output here into the thread... and i can assure you that these so called white-spaces can be processed by every better chess gui, most likely the case of error is often a simple typo like Nxe5 or something like that .
The official PGN-standard seems to use also these white-spaces in its examples, see here for more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Game_Notation

This means it's not a mistake , I also add the white space to all my moves.
> Oh, I blame the Fritz GUI for the confusion
I blame Paul for the confusion...
Nothing wrong with that of course as i know nothing of your style of play,i could have been more ambitious in my moves but could not find anything.
> I was slightly suprised by 8.e3 seems like you dont wish to play an attacking game.
Well, let me describe 8. e3 with your own words:
"I made a move at least i can comprehend and you have different choices in reply."
As you have big hardware, i of course must be careful overpushing positions seeking those i think i have under positional control... everything else is suicide...
> Hoisted by my own petard.
"Any reason for your delay in replying."
Hope Nelson Hernandez will see this thread, wonder whether he has this position in his database...

Lets see if i can alter Nelsons stats.

Well, that are blitz-games... our (corr-)position is sadly more drawn than a king vs. king-endgame could be.
Wanted to try 10. a3 because i don't think there is anything in the other branches, but your reply 10...Rb8 is excellent (hoped you would blunder e5 or Bg4 or whatever else besides Rb8, but big hardware is big hardware )... and of course i wanted to shake you out of your (LK-)book but i didn't succeed, therefore seems the answer against the Gruenfeld must be elsewhere, maybe in the Russian game.
Could he in any way weight games according to time control played at.
I have no doubt this would improve opening AN,however even an idiot like myself realises difficulty of this.
I dont believe this has been mentioned before,no doubt Nelson will prove me wrong.
On the other hand, relative ELO ratings are a valuable way of adjusting empirical results. For example, years ago we had the 1.h3 fad. Proponents of that move generally had much stronger hardware than their opponents, and they played it so often that they developed superior opening books in that line. As a result white scored a surprisingly high success rate, suggesting this was the best opening move. But obviously it was not the best opening move. For this to be reflected in the move ranking you had to adjust empirical result for relative ELO.
I still like the empirical and historical feedback we can get about positions such as 10...Rb8 (if i combined it right Harry Schnapp covered it in one of his great opening books - may you rest in peace Harry! - which lead to its appearances in CCRL/CEGT-testing), nice to know one was there previously and how tables can turn with new technology&thinkings... most likely 11. Re1 was a good scorer in the past, but as we will see soon it is not good enough.
Dont hold the horses though,i could be wrong.
> hopefully it will suprise both you and Nelson.
Edit: Will pm Nelson now the move you will play.
