Hi Folks, My son challenged me to a couple of correspondence games after my mum passed away and as now we were stuck in lockdown .... He even had the rules ready lol which are no engines and no databases but good old fashioned printed chess books are allowed .. So I cannot use my 64 core computer and have been reduced to actually moving pieces by hand on an actual chess board :lol:

Anyway the postal service is slow ATM  but I thought I would put the games up to show how they are progressing, TRY not to slaughter us if we miss something simple :grin: ... I dont mind comments but no move suggestions  except for something earlier.

Game 1 my son is white

1. e4 Nc6 2. Nc3 e6 3. d4 d5 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. e5 Ne4 6. Bd3 Bb4 7. Bd2 Bxc3 8.
bxc3 b6 9. O-O Bb7 10. Re1 Qd7 11. Bxe4 dxe4 12. Rxe4 O-O-O 13. Qe2 Ne7 14. Rf4
Rhf8 15. a4 Ng6 16. Rg4 f5

Game 2 The Wizard is white lol

1. e4 g6 2. d4 Bg7 3. Nc3 d6 4. Bc4 e6 5. Nf3 Ne7 6. h4 h6 7. Bf4 a6 8. Qd2 b5
9. Bd3 c5 10. dxc5 dxc5 11. O-O-O c4 12. Be2 Qxd2+ 13. Rxd2 O-O 14. Rhd1 Nbc6
15. Be3 e5 16. Rd6

I like that you keep this subforum running. :smile:

With computer-chess basically solved (to a draw), classical corr-chess is the future!

Enjoy, Anton

You are slow than Uly then....
U have not finished our game yet. :twisted:
Parent - - By Antares (****) Date 2021-04-23 22:54
Dear corr-IM Om,

a) In the Makogonov, you gave all your opponents till date a present, but played a perfect approach vs. me - not very nice. :mad:
b) As you know you're now a full piece down, but Chaissa somehow arranged that you might(!) can force a repetition.
c) I have no further pics of the chess chick. :surprised:
d) I currently have no computer to compete with your decently set-up Aquarium-box, and your nice sac showed me that my manual analysis + old computer has its limits.
e) Its rumored you send viruses with your moves. :razz: You also got free Houdini, despite being member on an immortal chess-Warez page... :evil:
f) Tony is now the DJ here. :cool:
g) Uly sucks.

I wanted a repetition hence a piece down :yell:

>c) I have no further pics of the chess chick.


Not needed for my. Give to Uly...

>d) I currently have no computer to compete with your decently set-up Aquarium-box, and your nice sac showed me that my manual analysis + old computer has its limits.

>e) Its rumored you send viruses with your moves. :razz: You also got free Houdini, despite being member on an immortal chess-Warez page...

Latest Uly rumor: He played a corr game vs. a Mexican drug lord, told him about some nasty bug in his opening program... one last story&trick... :grin: I will miss him... maybe.
