Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

A couple days have passed since my post in Low Content thread but I haven't heard anything from Nezh, so I think it is fair for Smilingbill to play the IM at Malkovich's game.

Smilingbill, are you still interested?

What if he's already researched your opening repertoire and is prepping as we speak? You dont even know who he is to do the same (obv this game requires serious prep)

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

looks like myself and Hiphop are going to start one shortly, since no one else apart from bill+anonymous are playing.

I think anything is fine apart from engines. Unless I am forgetting something super obvious here?

Also, it's not like my friend (or me for that matter) knows who Smilingbill is in real life either, so preparation is quite out of question

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

I'd be interested in playing one. My USCF is in the 1800s and I'm active. I'm a strong tactician but my opening book knowledge is probably that of a 1400 player. Dead serious, some of my commentary might be amusing.

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, I am going to setup the Smilingbill vs anonymous IM match soon, we at Texas are being hit by some ridiculous and totally unusual cold, so there are constant power outages because people use like 3x more electricity than usual and providers cant keep up with that.. Whenever everything is OK the match will be underway, stay tuned

I highly recommend calling him IM Anon instead of having to type out anonymous IM.

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

is it ever gonna be revealed who the anonymous IM is?

Also someone play me! Everyone here is either an Expert/Master or lower class player. Where are my kind of good/kind of crappy chess brethren at?

PyramidScheme I'll play you if you're interested. My FICS standard is 1956 and my old USCF is 1650 (ten years ago).

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

PyramidScheme, I created a thread for our game. GL

In on thread they said: no engines, no looking at spoilers, anything else is fine. Off the top of my head I'd think no help from friends also. Anything else??


So we can look at opening books and online databases of games? I don't prefer either way, I just would like to establish the rules. Also, psuedo time control of one move per day, meaning try to get at least one move per day ?

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

I assumed no opening books. Otherwise my game would have lasted a bit longer, I suspect Mostly that's just because nobody will learn anything from a thought process of "The most popular move here, according to the database, is XXX, so I'll play that." Doesn't really seem to be in the spirit of the Malkovich game, imo.

ok, so no opening books and game databases. That works for me.
