@Imperfect_Luck, you poseted a link to the video by Igor Smirnov called "to take is a mistake" (which I did watch completely). If trading pieces is usually a mistake, then why do you resign when your opponent does so? Why resign when your opponent messes up and leaves you with an advantage?
I'll tell you why. Because you do not actually believe that "to take is a mistake", you believe that "to take ruins my checkmate plan so I'm gonna go on a forum and tell everyone who trades pieces that they are suicidal and unworthy opponents".
By the way, when you have a forum topic that is 30 pages long and out of all the posts, maybe 2 or 3 people sympathize with you, and everyone else tells you that you're wrong, that's a pretty good indication that you're wrong.
You sound too rational for this forum, NegaMax.
I can assure you that the 2 to 3 posters that "sympathize" with him were just trolling.
People can be pretty stubborn and defiant.
I know a senior citizen who once argued for three hours with a dozen people that if you close all the doors, windows, and draw the shades to said windows in your house when it's 100 degrees out (with no air conditioning) the house will remain cooler because you've effectively blocked the warm air from entering your home. As he was arguing this, he was pouring sweat from head to toe in his kitchen. Obviously, the sane, middle aged people were only trying to spare the man from heat exhaustion and inevitable death.
it's more an indication of the vast quantities of luders on site
he's way more fun than all the whackjobs that turned up,
that said, you've no clue either! lol
Blah blah blah
Out of all this, this is the best post so far.
looks like your style alright
I just don't understand why you don't want to give us examples from your own games. I think it would be interesting for you to hear our view on th emoves made by your opponents, but even more interesting for us to hear why you think certain moves (trades) are suicidal or are only played by cowards.
I even want to play a game with you. Not a blitz game but a correspondence game in wich you have 3 days to make a move. And everytime i trade pieces i willfully explain why i made that move.
I truly hope that we can finally start talking about chess games and chess positions in this thread.
When people fill in the blanks, it doesn't mean the original post was clear, and it certainly wasn't evidence that what he wrote was represented by what people guessed it could've been. Please quote for me where he suggested anything other than material incentives for any exchange or sac to occur. All you'll find are distasteful analogues and rhetorical devices that do nothing but justify ignorance and general lack of appreciation for the game. You know who else are good at extrapolating information with vague information? Con artists and psychics.
Anyone who speaks in the manner which your object of sympathy does, should at least have the "common sense" to know that such words will attract scrutiny and "luders" as you'd like to put it. You were right about one thing though. He did use his "own dialect", but in no way even after the laughable need for translation did he say anything remotely similar to what the GM on that video had to say.
To be honest, I came in asking him to provide one of his games and point out the moves, 24 pages ago, going so far as to naively back him up like you are doing now. Many posts later, it became obvious he had no intention for any real discussion, and only reponds to criticisms regarding his person, showing where his priorities lie. Speaking of which, there's an important lesson in all of this. - You cannot reason or debate a liar.
it would not have taken much patience from a decent individual to understand where he was coming from.
you lot just trolled his thread with BS.
His original post was just him stomping on the merits of his opponents' moves. What'd you expect, high fives?
dude, don't diss physics or, for that matter, any form of science. it's not like astrology, where when you do an experiment 10,000 times and it fails once and it's still true; in science, if anything is proven wrong 1 time out of an infinite number of trails, it's then wrong.
What else to say to that but the obvious... psychics and physics are two different things.
oh... I misread that.
Of course the big question has to be: Why hasn't this garbage been moved to Off Topic?
the world may never know.
it's yet to be stamped with the rss seal of disapproval, lol
