  1. Hi everyone ;)

    I was just reading through a couple of pages on the net related to the Chess match organized by BrainGames in 2000 which brought face to face then reigning champion Garri Kasparov and challenger Vladimir Kramnik...

    I was wondering what some of you may have thought at the time (or today), because I just replayed some of the games where Kasparov, playing White, got from the opening a few positions where he could expect to make progress against Black (+= chess evaluation), but instead quickly offered 'draw' despite being down on the match score.

    Curious to know some of your opinions about that...

    Thanks, Cheers...:)

    actually, no...
    there's this chess "fraternity" over at the coll... 4 crazy kids - and they make life hell 'cuz they sit in the canteen all day bunking classes and on their own Queen Side Gambits and whatnot.
    I left playing chess half a decade back... no takers back then in my circle. So now I'm illiterate in chess [and I lost thrice -badly too - to a chess newbie just yesterday :(]

    Chess is good for the hair :) ... Concentration tends to make it grow fatser. :D

    Well, of course I meant "faster". Seems I've got all the hair I can handle, but no concentration whatsoever for the time being :D I'll set up my chess board as soon as I'm back home - promised. ;)
