I offer an open challenge to any of these so called champs in a 10 game match at these time controls at $15000 a match.Money to be held by an independent arbiter at least I am prepared to put my money where my mouth is.Confident such a match would have a huge following on forum.
Possibly biggest ever,come on Eros and co have you got the bottle.
his notice... He's a big player now!
Eros is a fantastic player but this myth he is some type of god like zen is pure nonsense my match play record v him is even but I have had the upper hand in a few games and I should have converted them.
Also eros has lost freestyle games in the past and he would again.
But he does protect this myth well.
I rank Anson as a far more dangerous player because of a broader opening range.
A true champion would play you any time any place any challenger.
Shame we could never finish.
Does not look like we will see such tours in the future.
P.S. Also, don't forget to sign in,
Better for the spectators also.
> most corr players lead normal lives, eg work, family friends.
Wow are you way off base here, Most players here, and most CC players in general are obsessive/compulsive nuts with huge ego's. Who wants to be with family (not immediate)
like inlaws and friends when there is moves that just came in the e-mail that need attention.
> Eros would only play paul if he could win the money if he drew all the games a little like ficgs world championship.
Which he could not do to win the 2014 version of this event because with say 19 games, he would need approx 14 out of 19 points.

I could not possibly work out who would have the form, experience, trustworthiness or knowledge to be an independent arbiter to hold that amount of money of course for a small fee for my time and effort, that could change.
> I would of course play you paul at real freestyle time controls I think you would find me a challenge.
You are not quite the person he is trying to 'bait' into a match
I have an idea of who my second would be and so has Nelson.
Just a bit of fun guys but I will take anyone on for big money on my own terms of course.
Not to hard to guess that Big Ben would get that job,
Fischer said "I win by myself, nobody helps me". And that's probably true. Of course he had Evans and Lombardy, but I don't think he would really trust their analysis without going over it himself.
Kind of like Nelson's stats, they are nice to have, but you can't just blindly trust them.
For my second I would've took Barnard, we had many long talks. He was a little radical, but I felt I could trust him.

There is some that have enjoyed a huge hardware advantage over the years, even free access to clusters, but I think now the gap is narrowed and there will be more surprises.
Not worth a years work....
However I did not believe I would lose such a match no matter what anyone else thinks.
No disrespect meant, I know you are a very strong correspondence player who himself has some serious hardware. My reasoning is just that if someone had been willing to take the bet, there would have been a chance that his resources would have been much bigger than yours.
That said, I know pretty much nothing about modern hardware. Karjakin claimed in a recent interview that Carlsen has a computer worth $50,000. Any ideas what kind of thing this could be?
This is chat by a guy who knows nothing about computers or computer chess.
...and you get north of $50,000 easily.
Your challenge reminds me of this man.
HEM and Lukas have better things to do and earn money rarther than play me at chess.
> I would have likely spent $50K on h/w, to make sure I win this $15K bet :)
That has been brought up already,
