Let's see how this goes, I don't tend to play the English as white but I could find nothing better!

Karmageddon rules: If the game ends in draw black wins.

:cool:

I nearly always open with c4 as it suits my temperament and style.
Generally I do OK against much stronger players - rarely invoke an engine but regrettably these days with almost 'constant' engine usage and my brain cells deteriorating fast I do use Eman .. :eek: .. since HeMan is unavailable .. :grin::grin:

Take care Uly and be safe.

Engines have advanced too much that I couldn't hold my games even with the help of Stockfish 8.

Thanks, take care.

That's great to know. One year ago I'd have said "don't worry, everything will be alright", but now I have no idea and can only send my best wishes.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Fury and Lunatic were only relevant for playing games and producing ones worthy of watching. Most people have dedicated to playing thousands of games to get an "elo performance" out of them, and then nobody even watches those games. But if you go and try to watch them, they're mostly a snorefest, so no wonder nobody looks at them.

With latest developments of NNs like Leela, we're coming to a point where the strongest chess entities can also produce the most amazing moves played, so we will see if engines that focus on style like those still have a place in the future.

Would love to game my GPU but its GTX - just a little more powerful than an electric toothbrush.
On another note - was at the hospital yesterday to have the surgeon look at my hands.
Man couldnt believe the 'stuff' going on at the entrance - we had a young lady escort us to where we were supposed to be and back again.

It's draw odds, if you draw you win. If you can force a draw from here I could as well hang up my queen.
