August 2003: I am sylvester_1990 on Log on and send me a challenge and we will play a game.

November 2002: I learned to play from my Pop when I was six. My older sister is a good player [1650]. I am good at problems and can beat her at blitz some of the time. In a regular game I lose to her a lot. I estimate my strength to be about 1400. I like Morphy and Fischer. My favorite foreign players are Tal and Gligoric.

Sylvester: If Kasparov and Kramnik just held a unification match it would generate a lot of interest. They would not need a large purse. The winner could cash in later. A clear Champion would make the next match much more attractive to the money people.
   Nov-24-04 HIARCS-Chess Tiger match (2004)
Sylvester: I don't think it is all that easy for a human "to calculate all the variations." So the centaur would seem to have the best of both worlds. But in your example the centaur would not have the computer's opening book. So that is one advantage to the computer. But probably not ...
   Oct-18-04 Kramnik - Leko Classical World Championship Match (2004) (replies)
Sylvester: I have to give a lot of credit to anyone who wins in the situation Kramnik found himself in. But the match overall was a joke. 14 games and most of them GM draws!
   Jul-07-04 Kasimdzhanov vs Adams, 2004 (replies)
Sylvester: How many games is this mini-match?
   Jul-06-04 Rustam Kasimdzhanov (replies)
Sylvester: I bet when FIDE had legit World Champs like Spassky and Fischer, no one called them "FIDE World Champion," just "World Champion."
   Jul-04-04 Alekhine vs Reti, 1924 (replies)
Sylvester: <Chessgames> the algebraic Alekhine edited by John Nunn has 29.Be3 Nb4 30.Rd2 h6 31.a4 Ne4. It omits your 29th and 30th moves for both players. It goes on the same and ends in 42 moves.

Sylvester: Thanks <iron maiden>. I thought so.
   Jun-27-04 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
Sylvester: I read last year that a three volume collection by Korchnoi was coming out in early 2004. Does anyone have any information on this?
   Jun-25-04 Henrique Mecking (replies)
Sylvester: Thanks <vonKrolock>. I read something like that. But I also read it was mostly psychological somewhere else.
