Sunny days get rarer and shorter with September knocking on our door, therefore i'm looking for a two-game match (played simultaneous - one with white and one with black pieces respectively) against a stronger (corr-)chess player who thinks he can actually take 1.5 or the full 2 points out of this match. Due pleasure of manual analysis, and my obsolete hardware available for chess, i will not use any of these fancy analysis-automation tools (Aquarium, Deep position analysis, ...) but will also limit myself letting a single engine run just once for 60 seconds for each current position we reach while i'm also allowed to analyze any potential upcoming position i'm interested in again with a single engine run of 60 seconds - therefore trying to work hard on the position myself, creating a tree of analysis just in my head and basing my move-decision on the information i gather that way. Full access to opening books and literature for myself is allowed, while my opponent of course can use any resources available to him - especially unlimited engine runs. Most often i will hopefully be able to move within a reasonable time of one to three days myself, yet working "manually" on difficult moves while working in a full-time job may sometimes indeed require several days more and/or at least the weekend to reach).

Anyone interested please drop me a PM, looking forward for our match :smile:,

Anton

Alvin, thanks for your interest. I'm currently playing Scott who took on the offer, maybe we can start in a few days when "opening settles"... will send you a PM.

I'm currently playing a challenge-match (conditions see my first post above) vs. Scott where below position arised out of a Modern/Pirc-opening, which is currently my interest of opening-research.

Because analysing on ones own sometimes leads to blindness, i'm looking for another strong defender with big(ger) hardware who thinks this position is defendable for black to finish my analysis of it, therefore i'm offering an -what in normal chess-tie-breaks would be called- Armageddon-match (you win when you draw or win) to get a good analysis-line of this position. I will playing with my challenge-conditions.

Thanks for any interest into my challenge. :smile:

Oh, so the idea is to defend black and if one achieves a draw it counts as a win? Count me in! I have defended several of these positions in the past, I even beat NATIONAL12 once in one of them when he was on the defending side! :lol:

It'd be actually my seventh time doing it, so, Nightmare Challenge 7 :smile:

Great Uly, i knew i could count on you! :smile:

> if one achieves a draw it counts as a win?


Yes, or to put it in other words: You win when i don't win.

> I even beat NATIONAL12 once in one of them when he was on the defending side! :lol:


Very interesting, do you have a link to that game?

> It'd be actually my seventh time doing it, so, Nightmare Challenge 7 :smile:


Well, most likely my challenge-restrictions (see above) have just overseen something and it won't be a Nightmare for you at all! :smile:, but of course i hope so. :lol:

Yeah!, actually, according to my records, I have beaten Paul twice in such challenges :eek: :

Of course, in actual fair positions he always kicks my ass, actually, in one of these challenges he beat me so badly that I recorded it as a double white win!

These kind of games are always interesting, thanks for the offer!

Oh, it's a nightmare either way, either the losing side regrets ever accepting to play on the first place, because they can't find any saving moves, or the winning side is equalized early and then it's a nightmare to find a win! Or something else entirely :lol:

I think it's the first time such a challenge is played with draw odds, though. Now, let me take a look at the other thread...

I want to offer a new challenge (you win when i don't win!) with a position out of my WBCCC-game vs. Djordje/armageddonx, who to my knowledge never lost a serious corr-game which speaks for his rocksolid defending - meaning you can expect the position to be as sound as it can be! Hope someone (maybe one of the resting WBCCC-players or someone with "big hardware"...) is interested into a serious analysis-game of the QID. :smile:
