Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

-Ecclesiastes 9:10

Restless man's mind is,
So strongly shaken
In the grip of the senses...
Truly I think
The wind is no wilder.

-Bhagavad Gita

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

-Desiderius Erasmus, Adagia (III, IV, 96)

The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and HE overthroweth the words of the transgressor.

-Proverb (Old Testament, 22:12)

WillC21: <tamar><he is showing all the signs of being content on the outskirts of major chess.> I disagree. Nakamura has clearly displayed discontent with a lack of invitations and opportunities relative to Karjakin and Carlsen. (I don't want to discuss the merits of his stance; ...

WillC21: I'm agreeing with you, dude. I don't think they are innately smarter.

WillC21: <dx9293> Hate to belabor this point here, but I'm trying to understand where you're coming from... Don't Topalov and Cheparinov admittedly analyze openings out until the endgame? Didn't Kramnik say that when Topalov has white it is almost a given that Topalov will get a better

WillC21: <frogbert><however, if one chooses to go one's "own way", it becomes harder to complain about "unfair" treatment.> I agree 100%. Now I must go out to lunch, but I will be back later tonight as the discussions on this page interest me a lot. P.S. Thanks for the live ...

WillC21: <I still don't understand which human player could have helped the computer beat Kasparov. Joel Benjamin??> Certainly Benjamin cannot be compared to Kasparov. But, it's well known that quite frequently a "weaker" GM + strong program is superior to a "stronger" GM. If there ...

WillC21: <frogbert><pawnsgambit> I think, actually, frogbert's math is correct here, given that he is disregarding pruning efficiencies. Not sure what his final number is(too lazy to go back and look), but it's massively large per my calculations, even for a "monster" like Blue ...

WillC21: <positionalbrilliancy> OMG! Kid !!!!!!!!!!! <Gilmoy><The critical difference in the problems is that sequentiality of dock-arrival is a non-issue for the islanders, but is significant for the vizier.> Exactly. In fact, when I approached the problem I simply assumed
