May I ask something ? Who is actually believing that Ponz111 means what he says ? Have you all not read his serious remarks aiming to show that chess is a draw ?
Ponz11 reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino now. Making a parody about all of us (about himself perhaps, too, and relaxing from the tiresome discussion).
I will believe it absolutely after I analyze the games.
So, did Lot's wife turn in to Himalayan salt?
Hmmm? That would be a miracle!
Here is 2nd game Expertise87 vs ponz111 1/2-1/2

Do you really want/need to see the 7 games I won with Black in the Finals of the 7th USA Correspondence Championship? Most are posted per my blog/Profile.
The game of chess is likely a draw. But the stronger player will typically win.
That's all @Ponz111 has been saying for 2000 posts in this thread.
Nontheless, there has been massive blather about tablebases, mathematical solutions to the game of chess, and other such will-o-the-wisps.
Just to sum up. Saves you lots of reading.
But don't look back and read those posts, or you'll turn into a salt mound.
So that other ponz111 who kept claiming that he thought chess is a draw with best play now has evidence against him!
I think that chess is basically a draw, because no matter what colour Fischer played against Larsen or Taimanov, he won.
@bigpoison: Why do you ask about the Himalaya? Is there any famous salt pillar in the Himalaya that reminds you of the wife of Lot?
I just noticed forgot to put the most interesting game of the 7
1 random 1/2 ponz111 1/2
This has a very interesting ending
Cross-thread kidding with Ziryab.
as per the other thread "the yolk was almost on me!" [the game with the fish swatting]
Thanks for posting the evidence that Black is winning in the Ponziani. That's a start.
Ziryab you are welcome but please realize I know the Ponziani maybe as much as anybody anywhere and I can make it look as winning or losing or drawish
We're looking for the truth of the position. Your knowledge is necessary to your argument. The question is whether your opponents' play was optimal.
In the 5 games I won I can point to a specific move where my opponents made a mistake. Sometimes more than one move.
