Shame we had to have such a heathen ruin a good thread. I think this was a good idea. Hope more will introduce themselves.
Hi Guys, I am returning to chess after a long 1.5 year break.
How can I regain my lost strength quickly? I used to have a 1435 Rapid Fide Rating back then?How can I get past it soon?
My goal is to be rated 1600+ before the end of this year. I need to catch up on Samuel Sevian.
My name is Prathamesh
I blame the trolls.
I agree this was a good thread
Now where was I ...
...yes.... girls ruined my chess life at the age of 17.
Age 18... went to Glasgow University. Got involved with lots of stuff including chess. Became a highly rated member of the men's union...yes we had a men's only union.
....so....this is where we come to randomly swear....
Yes, it is.
Go to bed, kid.
Where I come from, 'puto' would get your ass kicked.
I was never angry when i was a kid.
My favourite defense was the French Defense.
Slap and run?
oh boy... now i know why its called the French Defense.
Just like real life then.
I also was rarely angry as a kid. Way too busy chasing girls and drinking beer. :) Only time I'd get angry is when someone started something(in which case we'd head for the ally or up on the hill and throw fists to settle it) or I couldn't find someone to buy the beer lol. The internet has brought us many wonderful things, but unfortunately it has also brought forth a platform for the F-witted.
I will give this forum its lost glory again. Here now!
Things have changed with me.
I now suffer from chess elbow
