OK, I don't see people clamouring to play seswatha, so let's have Sholar and A.Ertbjerg to start in the next couple of weeks. After that, seswatha vs whoever wants.

After 33. ... Qxe3??, Anand gets the advantage, so that was a more than 3.0 points (engine evaluation) mistake.
It's nice to see how even the best player ever can collapse psicologically. Note that after the mistake white is better, but only slightly. The real mistakes came few moves after, to finally lose the game. They had even equal position at some point.
Awesome! Thanks.

Since Valenzuela vs KyleJRM82 has drawn to a close, I started a thread for A.Ertbjerg vs. Sholar here.

Would anyone be interested in having a Fischer-random match like this?

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

we only have one active game at the moment which is fairly far in, lets start another one. After that we can start another one after a couple of weeks, no need to wait months.
seswatha ~1700
Nikachu ~2100
airwave ~1900
Fistdantilus ~1900
jewbinson ~1500
Dynasty ~1700
Brownian_Motion ~1750
DON CASTI 2000
Noir_Desir 2150
chessterfish ~1400
chocaholic ~1750

We don't have to go strictly in order of seniority on the list, but it's a start. If seswatha and Nikachu are interested, they can play each other, or each find another opponent from the list if they prefer (the rating diff would be quite large).

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

I can understand why its not ideal to have multiple games on the go, but it seems to take along time to set them up if you are near the bottom of the list. Don't know if this would warrant a subforum at all to get multiple games going? Either way I'm not expecting to be near the top any time soon, so if someone just wants to play an ordinary correspondence game by pm's I'd be up for that?

I am interested, although I am sure it will be an easy game for you given the rating gap!

Alright, lets do it. Just someone teach me how to do it. I must hide the comments to all my moves? And is there instructions how to post positions?
