>>90295074Moe the Lester here, who cares about site rivalries. just play and have fun:)
I'm too poor for .com, are there any sugar daddies itt that will upgrade me for tummy pictures
>>90295074Last thread wasn't enough, post more bait, people here are bored. It's fucking chess after all.
>>90295220You dont have to pay just because there are paid tiers, anon
>>90295317But then I have to import my games to lichess for analysisDepth 12 or whatever isn't enough + the game review takes actual years to load and sometimes there's even a waiting :c
>>90295352Line* I've had to wait in line for game review
>>90295352Just pirate chessbase (which you should anyway) and analyze it with that
>>90295366But what about puzzles? I can only try once per day in each category :(
You wouldn't download a car
>>90295352>depth 12 isnt enoughBro you don't even see 5 moves ahead. 12 is more than enough.
>>90295478Irrelevant and incorrect
How do I approach playing kids otb? Will they get mad and bloonder if I play a boring opening like the slow italian?
>>90295601Depends on the kids. The normal advice is to play boring chess against kids but when I played a local prodigy I thought he was more lacking in the tactical department than the positional one and I won through a tactics. The other kids I played were just too weak compared to me and such considerations didn't really matter
>>90295601They don't give a shit about your opening. Sharp? Fine. Boring? Fine. They may laugh at you a little if you play the Grob (personal experience... I lost badly). As for how approach? Play your best. Try not to get distracted by the way it seems like they're not paying any attention to the board.
>>90295629>>90295683Ok sirs I'll just play my normal openings and hope I don't get shit on.
who's the most beautiful female chess player? is it nemsko?
>>90295383Set up the puzzles in chessbase as well. The only thing worth doing on chesscum or lichess is play against people
>>90295753I'm not very good with computers or the internet anon, IDK how to pirate chessbase.
>>90295757forget about it thengo do some puzzles on lichess or chesstempo
damn, the crazy lunatic from some weeks ago is gone and the general is finally peaceful again

>>90296049Too late for that. If I could still improve my character, I'd also have the neuroplasticity to reach a non-garbo rating.
>>90296012why would you post this? are you not so subtly trying to brag? i'm not impressed
>>90296181>play like shit>win because opponent also played like shitHow is that bragging?

woke up two hours earlier than I need to, so just gonna blogpost to soothe my seethehad a great club day yesterday, went 5/7. I didn't really think that I was “club level” but I guess it's because I am not in a big city or anything. there's pretty much only one guy I consistently lose to and today I was gonna smash him but I immediately blundered after getting a huge advantage. I did really well with the Ruy Lopez and also played an okay KGD game.I somehow, despite there not being any ladder at our club, feel much more motivated to improve. When I have a tangible goal of being better than some random guy, it feels as though there are things to gain and lose. Going for points in internet chess by comparison feels pointlessI think I understand what Fischer meant by the thrill of crushing an opponent's ego. I wouldn't say I am quite that sadistic (or good enough to be that sadistic) but it's definitely much more interesting to watch the people you defeatThanks for reading.
>>90296331>I think I understand what Fischer meant by the thrill of crushing an opponent's egoNever understood this mindset for amateurs. Losing is a slight annoyance at best to me. Maybe it's projection from people with gigantic egos, they just assume everyone is as devastated as they are by losses.
>>90296004hot body but not rly beautiful. i'm more amazed by her big booty than her face personally
>>90296497I agree with this. My chess is not that tied into my self worth and among my hobbies its like 3rd on the importance scale
>>90295889future school shooter>>90295968face too fat>>90296004bloated pig>>90295741for me, its my wife anna
>>90296497Losing isn't significantly frustrating for me either. I'm not sure, it's hard to put into words. I think chess is a lot more personal face to face and so when you defeat someone after an arduous battle, then you feel much more accomplished— even if they aren't actually crushed. I do think you are right about projection. Especially in online play. When people use the chat to showboat or do what I call “peacocking.” Which I guess works since I do see some people here complain about it and also dish it back. Posting a troll face or insult after somebody blunders, etc.
>>90296534>future school shooterYes, and?
>>90295601>play an OTB tourney recently>even kids open with d4 and the caro kann
>>90296774>mfw online you rarely see d4 even at above 2200>mfw because i play against d4 so rarely my repertoire knowledge against it at least half as comprehensive as e4
>>90295601Some kids will be well ahead of their age with their attitude and it will feel more or less feel like playing vs an adult ( usually these are the better ones at chess than the rest ), some kids won't say anything, some kids will cry if they lose, it doesn't change anything you do.Absolutely expect to play until checkmate vs most of them to win, they do not resign.
>>90296796I only started seriously looking into playing against d4 after joining a club because it virtually seems to be the only white opening played OTB. My e4 is answered by c5 in 80% of cases to the point where I haven't even had a single chance to play a scotch. I'm considering trying my luck with the open sicilian just because it's worth investing the time in that context but I'd be wary of playing it in team events. Sticking with c3 and Bb5+ as alternatives until I gather some more experience in the open lines online.
>>90296796>>90296838I think I'm going to spend the next few weeks drilling grunny theory.
d4 is the obvious best first move. Takes the center without weakening the king.Simple ass.

My recent otb tourney opened my eyes to how lacking my openings are. I got terrible positions against the bad players who just bailed me out with nonsense moves. I also got nothing against the good players, it was equality all the way until my inevitable blunder into a loss.And my experience absolutely agrees with what's been said about d4. Really need to get my QGD sidelines worked out.
>>90297341Just do tactics bro.
>>90297341Fuck I've got an otb tourney in a couple of days and my prep against d4 sucks.
>>90297187>opponent sacks queen for mate>neither one of them see itBeginner chess is truly beautiful
>>90297187Seeing those closed positions in each of his videos is just painful. No wonder he isn't taking off playing-wise.
>>90297423He actually considered c4 that game but chose instead to play the London triangle
>>90297379>beginnerHe's been playing forever. He just sucks.
could someone explain for a beginner why C and F file bishops are good to go for in the opening stage?I feel like it does nothing if the positions aren't open or if my opponent doesn't blunder in the first 8 moves or so
>>90297521>I feel like it does nothing if the positions aren't openJust open up the position with a well-timed pawn break.>or if my opponent doesn't blunder in the first 8 moves or soMany opponents will.
>>90297521The opening stage isn't about immediately winning shit, the point is to fight for the center and place your pieces where they've got some scope or at least some potential.
>>90297679This. All the best opening books start with a tableau of what the ideal piece layout(s) look(s) like. They should also cover ideal and common pawn structures, how to deal with common pawn weaknesses doubled pawns on specific files etc). Books that jump straight into analyzing a master game in that opening are not for Club Monkeys.
>>90297521Surely this should be obvious? c4 is on the same diagonal as f2 (weakness) and g1 (king position after castling). Even if the position is somewhat closed this fact can allow tactics.
>>90297767f7 and g8
>>90296970He's just lucky. Stop being so racist!
>>90297364Just drill Sam Shankland's semi Slav course 12 hours a day. Apparently that's what 9yos do to beat Jewish IMs (CMs) when they play 1.d4 OTB.
I'm starting to resent the memooooorizersmemorizing engine moves to always play winning positions out of the opening is cheating
>>90297929Just play fucking shit sidelines. Nothing makes me seethe harder than when some brainless street shitter doesn't play 3...exd4 against the Scotch.
>>90297929Have sex, incel.
>>90297973I can't unfortunately. When I was a baby in my moms car we were hit by another vehicle. Tragically, the seatbelt clip on my baby seat sliced into me and cut off my dick. I went on to focus my like on chess and memorizing openings to piss off people on /chess/. The worst part? The man who hit my mom's car was none other than... Hans
>>90298261Kramnik hands typed this post
>>90298261ok the last part made this post cringe
>>90294265>>90294313I used to direct tournaments and I can tell you where this attitude comes from: having to deal with asshole chess players, their massive egos, and constant rules-lawyering. And if you think that's bad, the petty politicking in the USCF over the years is not to be believed.

>>90296540>>90296497>Never understood this mindset for amateurs. because you haven't been to a tournament. you haven't felt people squirm in reaction to certain moves and relax in reaction to other moves. everyone who has played tourney chess understands carlsen's "i didn't sense he was struggling at all" because OTB you can fucking feel your opponent's heartbeat. your own heart will start bouncing out of your chest. may as well compare playing an NBA game vs. playing an NBA video game with OTB vs. onlineimportant reminder that most players (ivanchuk being the classic example) have massive panic attacks while playing. being able to play well through the panic attack isn't easy and it defines who is good and who is bad never once did i ever get nervous in basketball. never experienced butterflies or got scared before a game. never had heart palpitations. meanwhile have had chess games that are like out of body experiences i've seen people's hands start to shake so violently they can't make moves in time trouble>Losing is a slight annoyance at best to me.how much you care is going to correlate exactly with effort. i can lose 50 blitz games in a row and not get that angry... one bad blunder in a tournament and it's pure self-hatredand here's another truism for ya' in sports/games... add money to the equation and everything changes. doesn't matter if people are playing for $1 a game... the messing around goes away and the meanness comes outon the internet you always have the luxury of going "eh well that account just got fucked up" it feels like the account got ruined instead of your name. when you see your own name on a pairing sheet instead of "BlazeItXxX" it'll feel like you're bobby fischer in your first tournament just the amount of attitude you'll receive from opponents will get you emotionally invested. this interaction slayed me once board right next to me>"draw?" >no>[blunders] >draw?>"NOT ANYMORE." >*slams out move*
>>90298420fuck off, retard
>>90298279I have taken my kids to multiple USCF scholastic or mixed (kids+adults) tournaments, and the tournament directors have all been very nice. One tournament director even took time after one round to give my daughter a lesson on avoiding stalemates after her game.

>>90298420this doesnt sound fun to mechess is a mental illness
>>90298420>because you haven't been to a tournamentBut I've been in OTB tournaments, played for money in the park and it's still the same. Sure, I don't like to lose and some nerves are involved, but it's just a board game, you're making it sound like it's life or death. I think it's just you having mental issues, this isn't a universal thing.

>>90299036low theory, solid but not symmetric, white often overextends, it's perfect at lower levels because white will blunder something in the center and it's the least common big opening
is lichess rating roughly the same as chess.com rating?
>>90299308French is less common online than the curry-kan because of gothamchess.
>>90299310Not unless you're well above 2000.
>>90298587>this doesnt sound fun to meThat's because tournament chess is a high-test activity. You can't possibly get it if you've been consuming gay propaganda from the modern internet for your entire life.
>>90299427The chud was completely winning until he got his queen trapped.Based Pinkamena.
Pinkamena is 3/3 so far.
>>90299308>low theoryIt's one of the most theoretical openings. French players play it because they memorize theory, which is relatively easy from black's perspective, that wins them games in the same way every time. The French forces the game to be played very specifically and if white doesn't know what to do then it is very easy for the French player to win. This is why most French players collapse if the game goes on past the early middlegame - they don't understand chess that well, just the opening. It's really the opening for those most scared of actually playing chess because the French structure is so not-chess.
Pinkamena mogs karla
>>90299597>The French forces the game to be played very specificallythis is literally saying low theory with too many wordsdon't care for the rest of your post, it only show you're not mentally well and you have a terrible score against the frecnch
>>90299640According to that site that anon made here, I score the best against the French of all the black defenses. It's laughably easy to beat them after the opening. Stop coping and learn real opening.
>>90299161>2. g4>2. e4>2. Bg5I'd rather sometimes play the french than learn a bunch of theory in very sharp sidelines where one mistake instantly loses

So is this an episode of pinkamena stomps every adult improver shitter in the club? Looking like it.
>>90295866I'm still here I just listened to the community's feedback. I'm also drinking less this week, maybe that helps too
>playing rapid game>fuck up opening but manage to steer the game into an endgame and draw>check analysis and see a WGM is watching>my opponent was a 13yo 1430 fide girl and her coach was watching us playThis is the closest I've ever got to playing otb.
I mention this only because it reliably triggers chuds: yoko ono created a chess variant where both sides are white and when there are disputes over who owns which pawn/piece you have to settle it through dialogue. would of course encounter zero issues here.
>>90300182> I just took your queen asswipe> No you just took your own queen with my bishop dumbass> This game sucks butthead
>>90300182This would only be different from normal chess if two complete amateurs were playing tho.
>>90300165Let's be honest, this is closest you'll ever come to cucking someone.
>>90299944fuck off, bitch

>>90300244The Alex Jones/Andrew Tate effect
>Hikaru: you can reach 2200 with basic opening knowledge and a really good tactical skill>shitters: no no no he's obviously wrong, he's too smart to know what it's like to be stupid, I would rather take advice from my shitter coach and shitter streamersWhy are redditors like this?
>>90299415Can confirm I'm gay and that sounds miserable and like I might cry
>>90300165I hope you didn't play nude because it would be rape
>>90297459Since like February of this year
>>90300182That is predictably retarded.
>>90300298Why do you take advice from an Orangutan with down syndrome and an IQ of ~100? He's good at chess because it's literally all he's done since his cuckfather adopted him. not because he has any real understanding or communicable insight.
>>90300338I guarantee you Hikaru has way better chess understanding than some random youtube coach, he can identify the skills needed to reach different levels.
>>90300321Of course not, I generally wear a bathing robe when I'm at home.
>>90299944If letting a stronger player play from your account is cheating then all streamers should be banned.
Another adult shitter bites the dust.Also I just checked the tournament page on chess-results and they fixed the first board for Pinkamena, Magnus-style. They know who brings them the views.
Magnus vs Wethley coming up in 3 minuteshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AonwUz8PMPc
>>90300165Oh and btw the girl was higher rated than me. So 2100 lirapid/2000 liblitz is apparently equal to 1400 fide.
>>90300403>They know who brings them the views.
>>90300453I don't know who that is
>>90299944Even more damning in light of her treatment of Georg Meier
>>90300418jwon't he do it
>>90300473The biggest nonce who ever nonced.
>>90300298Hikaru was 2200 when he was like 10. He has no idea what he's talking about. And what he considers "basic opening knowledge" is probably pretty extensive.
>>90300403>Another adult shitter bites the dust.Pinkamena is 1300 ngmi
>r*nsch on the micnevermind. my brothers in christ go on without me.
>>90300516Everyone she's playing are taking dives to build pedo hype for their trafficker youtube channel
>>90300473Britbong boomer TV star, he was something like Mr.Rogers, very popular with children.
>Tyler mentioned me in video 100 ^.^ I'm famous
>>90300504There's a video of him playing chess on a SNES at age seven. At the very least it took 3 years of experience for him to reach that level, it's not as if he just learned how the pieces move at 10 and was blowing everyone off the board.
>>90300530>groomer projecting really fuckin' hard
>>90300539>something like Mr.RogersYeah except I don't think Rogers was a child rapist and a necrophile.
>>90300298True, that's why I try to stick to set it and forget it openings like the QGD and Four Knights
>>90300504Yeah sure, one of the strongest players alive has no idea what he's talking about... He can identify the necessary skills needed to reach 2200 because he understands chess.But sure, go ahead and take advice from your 2300 rated streamer who has been playing for 30 years and understand nothing.
>>90300559Regardless, he doesn't have any context for the rating range of 2000-2200 as an adult. Everyone there knows openings. And everyone there is pretty serious about chess. 2200 is master level. Noone who hits master as an adult knows 5 move variations in their openings and then just wins on tactics.
>>90300580He doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to regular people improving to master strength. We have a couple guys in here who are scraping master level and they take openings very seriously. Everyone I've ever met in person who's 1800-2100-2200 otb studies openings. Hikaru was barely able to form memories when he hit 2200.
>>90300590>Everyone there knows openings. And everyone there is pretty serious about chess. 2200 is master level. Noone who hits master as an adult knows 5 move variations in their openings and then just wins on tacticsWell you're probably right about this, but couldn't he be talking about 2200 online though? I haven't seen the video in question so i'm not sure.
>>90300552What did he say
>>90300619Well 2200 lichess is different. Even then you need to know openings to not get bad positions consistently. Hikarus perspective is warped because he could beat any NM on the planet with the bongcloud so it seems like openings are irrelevant. If you have the tactical, positional, and endgame understanding of a top super grandmaster then sure you can play a3, a4, a5 as your first 3 moves
>>90300608>Hikaru was barely able to form memories when he hit 2200.Well that really proves the point that you don't need a strong opening knowledge to reach 2200.
>>90300647That he's been getting told to play longer games so he's going to try it :)
Levy's gf is = >ugly>dumb>can't play chess
>>90300666oh yeah, I think it actually helped him, but I'm not sure if I can sit through 40 minute videos . I don't mind watching 20 minutes of Tyler at 2x while I'm on the toilet in the mornings
>>90300590they just don't get it. i have a friend who's been playing piano since she was 6 (chinese tiger parents forced her to learn the piano) and i recently started learning and i suck at it. she can't understand how bad i am at it because she learned so long ago as a child. it's the same for these chess masters. they don't know how they did it because it's become a part of them. they don't consciously think about chess improvement anymore, just like how my friend doesn't think about playing the piano it just comes naturally to her.
>>90300665He didn't. Most people do. And who knows what he even means by "extensive opening knowledge"
>>90300666Oh good. 10|5 is too fast for him judging by the regularity he gets in to time trouble.
Just finished my test drive with d4 and the caro. Feels bad to finally have proof of being low t seeing how well I did with them. Will still fight my genetic destiny and not switch from e4 and e5.
>>90300529JESUS FUCKING CHRIST I'M SEEEEETHINGI'VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ALL DAY FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
At the end of the day Hikaru is right if you think about it. As long as you aren't losing our if the opening (in other words, basic openings), then you will win the game if you are better tactically. You will see tactics in 100% of games and your pet opening lines in like 10% of games, why focus on the minority?
>>90300709D4 is literally cheating. Also I've never played d4 or the London but it genuinely does look like a great opening for beginners. Tyler always has a good opening position every single game as white it feels like
>>90300298>>90300504Shitters don't need opening knowledge because they will blunder their advantage anyway. Your shitter opponent will do the same. Openings don't matter, learn chess.
>>90300529Danny is a good speaker and Danya is the premier chess teach on YouTube, I don't see the problem
>>90300729Well said mate
>>90300716And you're 2200 otb right? So you know it's not a problem for players at that rating range to always get disadvantaged positions from the opening or equality at best as white?
>>90300709The fact that you're willing to fight your destiny shows that you're not low t at heart.
>>90300298I don't even understand what anyone would argue about with that statement.
>>90300729This. Just look at the eval graph for your games. How often does white maintain a slight advantage in yours? More likely the advantage bounces around 0 until someone starts winning tactically
>>90300729We aren't talking about shitters. We're talking about 2200 >hurr durr they're still shitters :^) The internet and twitch was a mistake
>>90300716Tactics rarely come out of nowhere, especially at above 1800 fide. People there aren't just dropping pieces for no reason, you need to pressure them into it. And that comes by organizing the correct plans in the middle game which comes from knowing your openings. Or if you are Hikaru and have already seen millions of positions and analyzed thousands of games in your life, then you don't really need the opening part at all.
>>90300577Jim, much like Mr.Rogers, enjoyed spotless reputation his entire life.His posthumous defamation is unfortunate, but not unexpected - tabloid journo scum prefer to prey on those that can't fight back.
>>90300729It's harder to blunder from nice positions that you understand somewhat.
>>90300751>how often does white maintain a slight advantage Often. Even more often the better openers advantage leads to a position where their opponent needs to play precisely to be okay and they DONT because they're not super gms playing bad openings as a joke
>>90300608>Hikaru was barely able to form memories when he hit 2200>at 10 years old>that projectionJesus fucking christ those NPC memes were all fucking real, weren't they? Sad stuff. I can still remember SMW strats from when i was 4 and i'm no genius. Never thought i'd be seeing normal literate people actually implying that they can't remember their fucking childhood
>>90300687Dude, she's good at it because she went to music school and took lessons from proper musicians.You are shit at it, because you have no idea what to do or how to approach it.
>>90300764Hello, pinkamena poster. Honour among thieves, eh?
>>90300733fuck off daniel
>>90300785It was a fucking hyperbolic joke you braindead retard.
>>90300685You sound jealous. Levy isn't going to ever date you, because you are ugly inside.
>>90300722I thought it was shocking how badly many opponents mishandled it with me getting marshall defenses in most games or having the gambit be accepted without the center being challenged. Those d4 games were some of the most ruthless beatdowns I ever played and I wouldn't consider myself an attacking player generally. The only threats were grünfeld players who gave me a clean beating.
>>90300806>so stupid you can't even recognize a joke and then doubling down insisting that's not possible Genuinely and in all sincerity kill yourself
>>90300802levy and his gf deserve eachother
>>90300686>20 minute poopsYou're gonna get hemorrhoids, eat more fiber and less sugar.
>>90300722Yeah, it kinda amazes me how much better he is out of the opening. The though is that it can be hard to make a middle game plan in those positions. Tyler actually also exemplifies this. He'll have every positional advantage and then just shuffle his pieces around until he loses.
>>90300823The screechings of a philosophical zombie are meaningless to me.
>>9030082620 minutes at 2x= 10 minutes. But anyway, I'm like a boomer and sit on my phone even when I'm done. (unless I'm at work, no time stealing here..)
>>90300832It's totally normal. D4 is super strong at 1400 lishit because people play like retards, but it doesn't last.
>>90300832A lot of times making something out of an opening advantage requires very decisive attacking that only works for possibly even a one move window... sometimes tactics are even involved! He just never looks for it.
>>90297187why didnt he take the pawn with check
people always fighting in here, settle it over the board like proper gentlekittens
>>90300836Uh huh, and you decided that based on taking a very obvious joke literally. You are stupid. You probably proclaim victory in online arguments when someone misspells a word or even makes a typo.
I love Wesley but listening to this R*nsch cunt is is grating. May Jesus shepherd him throught his match against the norwegian bum, I cannot be there for it.
>>90300876YO this exact same thing occurred in another game he played that I was looking at. He doesn't look for in-between moves for himself or his opponent. He needs to start lol
>>90300876I have no idea, but actually gxh7 is bad because Bxh7, so I'm not sure if he would have even figured out gxf7. He might not even be aware of in-between moves. I mentioned it in my comment so maybe he'll respond
>tell Tyler to play longer games >the video is too long to finish on my break I messed up :(
>>90300877It's too bad that people stopped solving their threadly disagreements by playing a game. It was kino and encouraged everyone to git gud.
>>90300797It didn't seem like that at all
>>90300934Yes it did. You are very dumb and very bad at reading. The alternative to it being an obvious joke is I'm the only person on earth who doesn't think people can form memories before 11 years of age.
what would you play, no cheating
>>90300960Rh4 checkmate >NOTE >NOTE >THIS POST IS A JOKE
>>90300891tyler doesn't intermezzo. he never considers it for his side or the other.
>>90300960What is the point in this post?
>>90300987ra4 is second best move, still winning, I would play it just for style points>>90300980it's a puzzle, what do you think the point is? we have people arguing over nothing and I post something chess related and get asked why
>>90300955You are very bad at gaslighting and I'm sorry you're an NPC.
>>90300955If it was supposed to be hyperbole then you're probably just terrible at conveying meaning in writing and wants to cope by shifting the blame. But the most probable thing here is that you simply noticed you outed yourself as a brainless NPC and is in damage control mode "it was a joke", lol.And don't worry about being the only person on earth, there's a whole generation of people out there who are just as mentally fucked as you. I just thought people were memeing when they made fun of this
carlsen's dress sense is beyond awful. dude has no style at all.
Just play a game already, this is lame as shit.
>>90301092He should ask guccireza
>>90301058apparently re4 is good too, white would play queen g2 and it's -6 for black. but there's one move that ultimately leads to a forced mate (in 13)
>>90301092i refuse to believe he has any people in his life that care about him because how could they let him walk around like he does
>>90301170not caring how you dress is Chad behavior
>>90301196This>>90301092You a fruity ass nigga
>>90301170His handlers' only clothing related task seemingly consists of making sure he doesn't rip up his shirts on cam. This ice hockey meets grim reaper outfit is next level though, that's for sure.
>>90301196are you twelve
>>90301147Well nobody's going to see a mate in 13, so you might as well give the answer.It's not such a great puzzle if there are so many winning moves.
>>90301213i liked when he was sitting on stream in the same outfit he wore when he went golfing earlier that day, imagine the smell
>>90301235I saw the move without seeing it was a forced mate, just saw the brutal pattern, the move is rook g5
SHITsley is getting ripped apart.
>>90301231twelve inch deep in your mom
Oh no-no wesley so-so-bros....
>>90300891>>90300974Someone send him a link to a PDF of EFCWB and the ChessvisionAI plugin and tell him to go through the whole fucking thing twice before playing again. It'll be like he gained super powers.
Well a big difference between hans and magnus/hikaru is that with the latter you've got a trillion examples on youtube where they had to blitz out moves, OTB, at such a rapid speed that it's incomprehensible they could be cheatershttps://youtu.be/nOL_fYEEBsI?si=mV8J7Yqk-wgpw91S&t=453https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZo8O-p9qy4i'm not aware of a single case where hans has slammed out moves quickly OTB... it's the one context where cheating is impossible
>>90301529not impossible, not quite. A contact lens showing stockfish live would do it. Deep state have the tech to do that.It would be trivial to have something transmitting the player's view of the board straight to an engine, which they could see reacting live and then copy it.
reminder that this is the greatest game of all time.https://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1551140

>>90301529wow how has no one noticed that hans has literally never played a blitz or bullet game, shocking that he got away with it for this longretard
>>90295059I’m here asking because I assume you are the highest iq gen on the board. Would this be the board to try and start a poker general? Not sure if it’s sports or a tg like chess.
>>90301847I guess you play it on a table, and it is a game, and it is traditional.
Daily round up-Spanish, 2 Russian, 3 Indian and 1 Croatian cheatersOnly a Mexican and a turk did not cheat
>>90301847>I’m here asking because I assume you are the highest iq gen on the board>>>/tg//mtg/
>>90301873And an Indonesian cheater, I forgot
>>90301873 I judged the Mexicans by their enemies. And I found it was an almost unfailing truth that their enemies were the enemies of magnanimity and manhood.If a man loved slavery, if he loved usury, if he loved terrorism and all the trampled mire of materialistic politics, I have always found that he added to these affections the passion of a hatred of Mexico. She could be judged in the light of that hatred; and the judgment has proved to be right.
>>90301877mtg is only played by braindead neckbeards
>>90301847is there's not already one? You can try /sp/ but they'll be mean + it's so fast that you'll get bumped to death without a lot of posters. /tg/ is probably a safer bet, maybe do some advertising on other boards

>>90301822more cats plz
I feel like I'm learning watching Naroditsky's videos
>>90301847worth a try but i dunno how much interest you would get on this boardhow is poker played online? is there a most popular game/website?
>>90301954he's simply the best
>>90301945Based. Please tell me they're playing DOGS.That would be kino of the highest order.

>>90301982>You can't do a racism that illegal>seething noises increaseHe is literally janny now you know
>>90301956Dogshit. The level of play online is very very high/competent compared to live. I only play live because the level of play is far more elementary, and if you can adjust there is money to be made.
>>90301901Burrito stained hands copy-pasted these words.

>>90302005I'd thought about transitioning from chess to poker, a general with resources and maybe friendly games for practice would be nice
>>90302021what? there's plenty of online poker being played. many not as much as chess though.
>>90298808My first e5 game. Never looking back.
>>90301847/biz may be an optionI've been thinking of going back to poker but only after I hit my chess rating goal (which is taking much more work than expected)
Bugman getting raped by the Norwegian bum live on TV.
>>90302005Yep. I made a small side income for several years playing small stakes tables at the local casino during tourist heavy times of the year. You want the plebs at the table. You do not want to go when serious players who up, even on the small stakes table. There were a few regulars at the casino doing the same thing I was and we all tried to avoid each other by mutual agreement.
God is dead.
why is magnus so good?seriously
>>90302109Wesley is having a legit mental breakdown and playing meme openings. Magnus is bored.
>>90302021There are an absolute ton of online sites. PokerStars, party poker, 888 etc etc. and that’s just the above board legal ones, there are also hundreds of shady online poker sites running games in Asia. >>90302035Word, it’s the best game ever made imo. The variables and interactions are GOATed. And the best part is lots of people who don’t really know much past the rules love to risk big money ( oil town ). I think chess is great and a worthy hobby, but you can’t go to the casino on a day off and make some money 1v1ing scrubs at chess. >>90302066Biz is unironically to retarded for a poker gen to thrive there imo. >>90302086We don’t collude openly but it’s common knowledge who’s a reg and who isn’t. Most regs here are old people with little to do so they spend their retirement chilling and playing cards.
wesley isn't recovering from this any time soon lol
>>90302109Genetic mutations induced by antibiotics buildup from farmed salmon.
>>90302146It's a massacre. Worse than usual for Wethley against Magnus.
Bros... Stjepan was right?
We still have bullet Wesley so so bros...... why can't we just resign the match
>>90302172Fr children take like 9 years to be able to not speak like a retard. Adults become fluent in a year

>>90302172What is an "artificial language rule"?
Magnus looks hung over.
>>90302200i think thats just his face at this point
Naroditsky looks so tired of Rensch
As someone who hates "w"esley's stupid lisp, I'm enjoying this immensely.
>>90302188>Fr children take like 9 years to be able to not speak like a retard.Assuming you're older than nine, the kids are doing better than you son.
>>90302197To make the experiment objective and reliable the scientists created a new language with it's own grammar rules. They can't use existing languages because past experiences can shape the results.
As someone who hates "w"esley's stupid spirituality, I'm enjoying this immensely.
>>90301974of course... this board can be yours for the low low price or 180 dollars
>>90302220Naroditsky is super annoying megakike.
I will always love this M3 setup; faggots always assume they can dodge the bishop check and fork your rooks on f2. WRONG, SUKKAH.>>90302327That is reddit tier levels of "spending my money on plastic crap" retardation. Someone should make a cats/dogs pieceset for liecheat though, that'd be kino af.
>>90302220fucking hell get this retard off commentary
>>90302386I'll make a design for 3D printers and sell them on etsy to redditors
>>90302370Chess is (((ourgame))), deal with it.
Maybe putting in Danny for this was the right call all along. Should've trusted the big guy and his masterplan. Glad I didn't have to witness such a slaughter. Perhaps that earlier blitz match against Rapport + playing from a hotel room of a foreign city is a bad combo.
>>90302399Based. Call it "Chess Cats vs Funko Pups" and clean the fuck up. Those soi guzzling faggots will be lining up to give your the spending money their wives let them have this month.
>>90302386my family had the Simpsons chess set when I was a kid, it was great
>>90302425This set and the batman one are the best tacky sets around.
how do you premove in real life?
>>90302438you just move two pieces in a row
>>90302438Stealthily tie a piece of string around the piece that you want to move next so that you can grab it quicker.
>>90302438you take the piece, press the clock and then write down the movealso amongst inexperienced players sometimes you can get away with recapturing on your opponent's timelast one happened to me
>wesley smiling like a psychopathDid Magnus genuinely mindbreak him?
>>90302425>>90302437Agreed but I'd include the Mario set instead of Batman. Thing is you can pick them up on Ebay for $25 for the Simpsons set and like $15 for Mario one. Not $180 heckin dollaradinos chicos and chicas! That's no bueno!
why are you guys hating on my boy daniel?
>>90302511He shouldn't be doing commentary on serious matches is all. Pogchamps, sure, but not this stuff.
>>90302172Memeplasticity is a meme. Your average kid loses their attention span 2 moves into the game and keeps being a shitter. The thing is that the special talents are already unearthed at young ages either way.
Chudnus is a god.
this man is getting owned
>>90302545how come? you don't like his personality? personally I don't like Danny, seems like a really fake person.
>>90302751I'm not tuning in to a chess tournament stream for bad jokes and ad plugs.
>>90302804but I don't understand, that's literally what Danny is doing? don't see how it's different, you're saying his bad jokes are better?
>Magnus isn't a favorite vs Hikaru in this formatWhat the fuck are they talking about?
>>90302866When was the last time Magnus won this tournament?
>>90302836he was talking about rensch
>>90302836Wait. Who are we talking about here? They're both named Daniel. Rensch I don't like. I have no issue with Naroditsky on commentary.
We're reaching levels of ESL in here that shouldn't even be possible. Don't forget to get your duolingo time in when you start tilting at booolet, kids.
>>90302922You have to expect some confusion when discussing two guys named Daniel with last names not initially specified.
I wish someone would brutalize my guts the way Magnus is doing to Wesley.
>>90302974I'd beat you at chess and then clap your bucci.
>>90302948No one has every called that cunt Daniel Rensch other than perhaps a Met PC arresting him for exposing himself to minors in a McDonalds carpark.Daniel or Danya = the Jewish cuntDanny = the British cuntSIMPLE AS
>>90303140Wait he's not even British. He's just a generic cunt.
I like Danya, but I've never seen anyone who has a jewfro who wasn't a raving communist. So I assume the same applies to him.
>new account>new account>new accountNice fucking website you got there chessturd dot shit

>>90303223Ive been hovering around 1550 and continually get 1600 exactly players playing their first game. If I don’t abort I get to see some fish lines
>>90303267You may have gone too far in a few places.
>>90303245he did actually seem to play better, although he hung mate in one (i didnt spot it during the game either)
>>90303155His name is Daniel. What is this reddit shit where everyone calls him "Danya" all the fucking time? He's American too its not like he's Russian or something.
>>90303279Unlike l'chess, Chess.com seems to purposefully match new (or high RD) accounts with other new/high RD accounts. Amusingly this means that you often find yourself at ~1800-2000 after 2-3 games. As your provisional status doesn't show on chess.com you can just rating sit forever and pose as a 98%-er.
>>90303398I thought his family exactly was from russia, hence danya.
>>90303427>Naroditsky's parents are Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union. His father Vladimir immigrated from Ukraine, while his mother Lena came from Azerbaijan.Okay fair enough then. I still don't like it though.
>>90303402The Karla gambit.
>>90303398hes secretly a weeb
>>90303471The Karla gambit is a lot trickier. You have to get through enough games with a rating over 2000 to get an RD below 110 and lose your lichess '?' of shame. Even then you have to keep on playing, and winning, games to keep your rating. If Karla played on chess.com(TM) she could finally hold 2000 rapid FOREVER.
>>90303465yeah it's a bit lame to be honest. He's a commie, though I know it.
I see your Danny and Danya and raise you Daniil.
>>90303534He's certainly Jewish and that's reason enough not to care for him much. He's also inordinately successful for a 2600 player. Works for the new york times or whatever rather than denouncing them as criminals the way fischer would do >but you said jews were b... If naroditsky starts saying it's time to start randomly killing jews I'll like him a lot too
>>90303398His dad is a Hohol
>>90299597NTA but depends on how you want to play it. There's 4 big lines in the french for WhiteAdvanceExchangeNd2Nc3You don't need to study the exchange, you can put minimal time into the advance and still get something decent out of the opening.>Nd2the Tarrasch, black has a few ways to play but the biggest responses are>c5>Nf6c5 is easier to play and leaves you with an IQP, Nf6 is pretty theoretical since you have to know how to sacrifice material in the main line or you'll lose pretty handily.Next is the main line French>Nc3The mainline has 2 big responses against it:>Bb4>Nf6Bb4 is the Winawer, it's very theoretical opening and you do have to study it.>Nf6 This is an alternative where White has a few responses and Black can play different moves against them. It's not heavy on theory and the positions are playable.Of course if you don't like these there's also the alternative of playing a Rubinstein. It's not a very active opening but it's solid and you can grind people down with it. There's also an advanced Rubinstein in the Nc3 variation: 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 dxe4This is generally regarded as a better rubinstein variation so you could play this.Theoretically you could make a very low maintenance French by playing the Rubinstein against Nc3 and Nd2.
>>90303619Are there even any American chess "celebs" that aren't either Jewish or some kind of imported gook? Even all of the various aub-species of Slav are Jewish.
>>90303824Botez sisters aren't Jewish to my knowledge.
>>90303838We won't know until one of them gets her knob out on their fanhouse.

>>90303780I remember learning from kingscrusher about a decade ago the shatard gambit as he called it. Those were interesting positions.
>>90295601why do you want to specifically play against kids
>>90296276>>90296181You might want to change hobby. Go with something more appropriate for your IQ, like Simon Says
>>90303996If you've ever joined a club or played an OTB tournament you will understand the question. It's not about wanting to, it's about the opponents you get when you're unrated and new.
>>90304017When you're unrated and new your adult opponents crush you? Is that what you're saying?
>>90304024I'm saying you will play the weakest players available to start, which are invariably mostly the kids. That did change somewhat since the boom though. There are more adult improvers around now.
>>90304024Look up tournament flyers on USCF or some state federation/association, most are sectioned/flighted and some have stipulations about who can play up.Unrated and low rated sections are mostly filled with scholastic players because most are new to the game or are still bad.

>>90305446kek. don't people IRL just get up and watch other games? at some point you need to know your opponent's response before spending more brain power.anyways, the tabbing out was during the mid game.
>>90305530They do, but those are 4 hours long classical games so there's a difference.
Switched to d4 and the number of Englunds I'm getting is crazy. Been playing 2.e4 and transposing to something I know but I should learn it if people are so intent on giving me free elo.
Why does chess use increment instead of guaranteeing a set minimum time per move that doesn't accumulate?
>>90305727Because of Fischer.
>>90305881Increment was invented by Fischer.
>>90305694Definitely learn it just fair warning the Englund gambit people are fairly dedicated to their opening. It's going to be a lot of prep (not necessarily theory) before you exhaust them of their memes. I'm assuming you are a reasonable mid range or better rating. If you're on the lower end they will run out of tricks very quickly and now you're +5 or whatever. The 2...d6 stuff is more dangerous than the Nc6 lines, generally. There are more interesting shenanigans available to black with that one and it's more work on white's end to prove the +2 advantage fish likes to say it is.
