Re: Correspondence ChessActually, it is a mate in any possible play, so... The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #127 20131029 05:01:11
Re: Correspondence ChessYes, it is mate in 2. The position was unavoidable. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #128 20131030 00:17:21
Re: Correspondence ChessOkay, congrats again 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Correspondence ChessIt was a very interesting game. Thank you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Correspondence ChessI used a board and pieces just like everyone else. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #132 20131030 01:37:30
Re: Correspondence ChessHow much do openings affect the game? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #133 20131030 01:39:45
Re: Correspondence ChessThe opening is an extremely important part of the game but no more important than any other. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #134 20131030 01:45:11
Re: Correspondence ChessWell, which openings are among the most often used?

Re: Correspondence ChessThe Sicilian defence, Ruy Lopez, Kinds Indian defence, Gruenfeld defence have always been mainstays. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #136 20131030 01:55:01
Re: Correspondence ChessYes, I read about Kasparovski using an a3 opening against a computer to confuse it.

Re: Correspondence ChessThe Kings Indian Attack is a fianchetto type opening that was used by many strong players. It is not weak, it is just not fast. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Correspondence ChessIsn't that 1. Nf3 2.g3?

Re: Correspondence ChessThat is right, followed by Bg2 and 00. Great for producing heavy maneuvering and easy to play. Favorite of the great Tigran Petrosian.

Re: Correspondence ChessHm, I like that one.

Re: Correspondence ChessThe Sicilian defense is the most popular response against 1e4, not against the KIA. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #142 20131030 02:58:08
Re: Correspondence ChessYes, but, you can begin KIA with 1e4.

Re: Correspondence ChessYou can transpose into a Kings Indian reversed but it is a trifle limited to do it that way. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #144 20131030 03:11:50
Re: Correspondence ChessHm, but why is Sicilian so strong against KIA?

Re: Correspondence ChessIt isn't, it is a good choice for aggressive players against 1e4. The KIA is not 1e4. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #146 20131030 03:16:21
Re: Correspondence ChessSorry, why is it good against 1e4? The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #147 20131030 03:23:26
Re: Correspondence ChessIt creates an unbalanced position as opposed to 1e4, e5. The play leads to great complication in an open position where one side will win. The chances generally favor white but black has lots of counterplay. In other openings black has a more solid but more timid position. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
