I really suck at chess.

<Lying. It's what liars do. <Diademas> is a liar>
I make friends everywhere.

<Tedious spammer <diademas> needs [to] be humiliated and shamed publicly.>
-Another satisfied customer.

<Can you imagine if your thinking and reasoning was as poised and untrained as <Diademas'>?>
People know and love me.

<<Die-a-dumbass> You're the liar. [...] Not only an obnoxious idiot, but a liar at that!>
Famous last words.

<[...] and Diademas. These godless liberal mutherfvckers [...] hypocrite asswipes>
I am revered and respected in this community.

<Crooked (at)Diademas knows absolutely NO LIMITS. Sad!>
No good deed goes unpunished. Full Member

Diademas: <moronovich: If I were in camp Nepo, I would advice him to consider going 1.d4 in the next game.> Looks like Nepo's preparations with white are in variations of Spanish. Don't know if changing that on a days notice is the way to success. How is life treating you down there in

Diademas: < thebully99: What is the longest classical game (that was won) between top-level players?> According to Wikipedia, the longest decisive tournament game is Danin–Azarov, Turnov 2016, which Danin won in 239 moves. Closely followed by the 237 moves Fressinet vs Kosteniuk, ...

  OhioChessFan: Yeah <FSR> would freak if he doesn't win. I don't have the guts to tell him I think it's very good, but really not the best of the year.

  Count Wedgemore: Takk for din hyggelige påskehilsen, Knut. jeg måtte en tur tilbake på sykehuset for noen dager grunnet mine hjerteproblemer, så jeg har ikke "sjekket inn" på en stund. Nå står alt bra til. Håper du hadde en fin påske, omstendighetene tatt i betraktning. Ideen med familiemiddag gjennom Skype hørtes bra ut! Vel, jeg håper det funket i praksis. Din venn Bjørn

  FSR: <OCF> So what should have been the best pun of the year? Tata Steal?
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: OhioChessFan chessforum

I don't know. Maybe it was the best. That was my list of the candidates.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: < FSR: <OCF> So what should have been the best pun of the year? Tata Steal?>

Hey, I voted for you!
Please don't kill me...

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <Diademas> Hey, I won! No need to go on a killing spree. And certainly I'm not going after those wonderful people (or whatever kind of being you are - hard to tell from the avatar) like you who voted for me! Thank you!

I thought my pun was amazing. As someone who's had 144 of my puns used (and more than twice that not used), I can tell you that it's virtually impossible to find a game that fits a pun so perfectly. But I will admit that the game itself wasn't all that great, unfortunately. White got a crushing position, then seemed to have blown it until Black stumbled into mate.

My opponent (White) has 25 legal moves. He found the only one that allowed mate in 1.

Aug-29-20  mckmac: <For Kristoff, this was another timely reminder of his almost eternal class. Every time he’s written off or passed over he delivers another key victory, and now after stage 1 of the Tour he’s made his race and that of UAE Team Emirates. “I always dreamt about wearing the yellow jersey and now it’s a dream come true,” the Norwegian said.

“You can’t dream of a better start. We have a team of climbers and didn’t think of winning the sprints, at least not so early on but I felt really strong in the final kilometres and going to the line, I saw I’m going to win. It was an amazing feeling. I’m really proud of what I was able to do. The boys kept me safe during the stage but I was alone in the final kilometers. But I still found a good wheel. I was sitting on Sagan for a long time. Then I got boxed in but I saw Cees Bol starting on the right and tried to follow. I saw he was fading but I still had legs, so I went. It was an amazing moment for me.”>

I am very pessimistic in this question, so my bet is <no>.

Premium Chessgames Member Messiah: <Diademas: So do we have a bet <Messiah>? Pay up date December 31 or at the end of the Championship.> Yes, of course, deal.

<Your membership expires on Jan-02-2024>

I am not certain that you will be able to extend mine, if I win, but anyway, I'm OK with it. Just please remind me if and when I have to lose my precious money because of this (hopefully suicidal) bet.

I'm not an untrustworthy jerk. If I lose and I'm still alive when the WC cycle ends this year (and I am not banned, but I think I can do it even in this sometimes favourable case), you will get the premium membership extension.

OK, if in prison, I'll be forced to break the deal. Fortunately, I am not a criminal.

No criticism ment. Just a reminder, mostly to myself. As you see above (Diademas chessforum (kibitz #267)) I have other bets and with the same procedure.

I'm not going to show up at your funeral to collect, but I would appreciate it if you showed up in mine. Mrs Diademas would certainly know how to cherish the comic relief.

As Mrs. Messiah does not exist (I had a ridiculously bad luck, on top of my double question mark personality), I cannot guarantee the same opportunity in remembering the husband. But as I am 33, I might have plenty of years to destroy my freedom in chaining myself to an even worse chess player in eternal love. The seller girl in the nearby grocery is at least 2760 in being beautiful, so wild ideas might appear.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Diademas: I have instructed Mrs. Diademas to pay up if you should turn up. She has also promised catering and an open bar. Both you and the grocery girl are welcome.

  OhioChessFan: ***Moves Prediction Contest Is Back!!!***

A message from The Legendary <chessmoron> ===========

Hey <friends> What better way to have a prediction contest than a <World Championship>. Get you prediction hat on, and let's PREDICT!

The drawing of colors will be available on Nov 24th (Opening Ceremony). All predictions must be posted on User: OhioChessFan before NOV 26th, 2021 at 7:30AM Eastern time.

Since there's 14 games total, predict as many games as you think the winner will need to score 7.5 points, the number needed to win the match. Then predict the number of moves each game you think will be played.

Be warned, if a game is not played and you predicted a game result, you will lose 3 points. ie. If game 14 is not played and you predict a game 14, you lose 3 points."

Posting format:

G1: Nepomniachtchi-Carlsen (1-0, 1/2, or 0-1) (# of moves played)

G2: Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi (1-0, 1/2, or 0-1) (# of moves played)

3. Only Moves+Bonus Ranker (See OhioChessFan chessforum 's profile on what that is about) will be used to medal.

4. I will post results after game 4, game 8, game 12, and game 14.
