Hello Guys

The Dutch Armada has arrived home.
Saints was great and i have enjoyed it,same as Ruud Martin
We played in a sort of school,the room was nice and clean
The French hosts had arranged food and drinks,so that was covered to.many thanks and well done guys
For me ,who didn't speak French at all,it was no problem becaus Christian speaks German and French so a translate was quickly made.
I was interested in meet the guy Alain Zanchetta he is a very nice and kind person Also the other French Collectors,with few i had a nice chat
So the tournament was friendly and peacefull.
Alain was the Empire ,and arranged each round on his computer.
And what to think about Steve Blincoe he played online through chessbase in the tournament
Whe played by swiss system
At the end the Nigel Short was the winner altough he had many luck against mine 68000XL wich made in a clearly winning position a huge error and even lost the game.
If..if as u can see at the tabelle on the end.
At the end all guys want to eat together,but unfortunally Ruud had to work on monday so we had to leave and arrived at 23.40 by Ruud house in Holland

Guys it was very interesting to meet u and  to the next time.


Kind regards,

Hans

Hi,

Paris 2009 was yesterday and ended with a clear victory of the Nigel Short from Ed Schroeder, operated by Christian.

Thanks a lot to all participants... and see you next year !

Nick/Mike,

well lets say it took the bus in a slightly wrong direction.
But finally it saw the error of its ways and finally got there where it belonged.
Now I am really ready for Paris!

Hi Steve,


Quote from: Steve B on February  5, 2009, 04:03PM   

i do indeed see that you got the GM
do you think you will receive it in time?

I received it last week 


Quote:

actually you should have waited until there was an auction for the  Platinum GM
it is several hundred ELO Stronger then the regular GM

is it the 24 MHz version which appears on wiki ratings ? or simply a joke ?
Anyway, the normal one is strong enough for me (and it was both new and cheap).

Not myself a platinum player regards,
Alain

Hi Steve,

Is it really stronger?  I have on several occasions had my finger almost clicking on one but always restrained myself because of not really wanting another of the same.

All the best

In fact, I chose the Grandmaster as soon as the 2000 limit was set... and even before I had one 
Paris 2009 has been the excuse to order it

Do you remember the old Resurrection v Compuchess - Draw!! thread
http://users.boardnation.com/~chesscomputers/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=567

Martin posted a game of Resurrection Fruit 05 v Mephisto III where III kept pushing pawns missing Mates in 2 and 3, in order to queen pawns.

Perhaps Queen odds and 1000 Elo points difference would be about the limit for realistic games? That would still give you enough scope for the Mother Of All Tournaments Nick 

Mike


Mike,

yes this was an interesting thread. Therefore I will take my Mephisto III to Paris.  The others will happily give me queen odds...Alain? Hand?

Mike,

I one played a tournament between Mephisto III and Tasc R30. The R30 needed a handicap, so I did set him from expert to easy.
It did not help the Mephisto III though, he got one draw out of some 10 games.
I performed this test for a friend of mine who wanted to buy a R30 and his a moderate chessplayer himself.
Finally he decided to go for something lighter

It may be a close run thing what with the snow, HM Customs, Heathrow.......but it should arrive by May 17th.
Now I am hoping to having two chess computers in the tournament. 

Has anyone played a handicap chess computer tournament? Either giving piece and/or move odds, or instead the winner is the entry which exceeds the Elo predicted result by the biggest margin? That way you can have chess computers of widely different abilities playing.

Hi Saint Mike
A handicap tournament eh ? hmmm  I was thinking along the lines of someday playing a little tournament where each machine is set up with a maximum of for example 4 half-moves (ply) and see what happens.  Or an under 10 Mhz tournament   Or A World League  between manufacturers where randomly 6 machines are picked from within each manufacturers computers.  And placed as  board 1 - 6.

There is so much that could be done with our little computers.  The possibilities are limitless!   

All the best

Nick

Mike/Alain,

since Alain seems to have changed his mind and plays with one of RonĀ“s minions I could possibly swap to something which will arrive soon at my place.
Which means Milton Keynes will definitely be involved.

How does this sound?

As for the Excalibur Grandmaster I always mess up a game somewhere along the way trying to move the captured piece before the capturing piece.
