I think by the looks of things so far Barman is going to win this tournament the way its currently going


That's a bit premature, I've got a total of one draw to my name compared to your 4 wins and one draw. It's a long way from over


Yeah, you're right, what was I think - I'm of course going to win devil.gif

In honesty, I believed it would be the case because I was confident that one of my games against Paraniod would be a draw, thus putting you ahead. But Paraniod wants to fight on, so who knows how it will end yet.

Well, you're assuming that I'm going to win all my other games which may not be the case, as the previous two tourneys have shown I'm the king of rushing a game and making a stupid mistake  yes.gif

I had also forgotten about Tiggs and Saruman. Saru is a strong player, but I don't think I've every played Tiggs, so I'm not sure who'll win that.

Course Paraniod may well have rejected a draw because he sees a way to win, and with thrash me and then carry on to win.

And Parb was a good player also, although he lost against me just, he may well beat everyone else and capitalise on my own loses and thus win.

^I'm under no illusions, Talon.  You're still a better player than me, though I've learnt a heap since starting to play chess.  I'm due for a silly move somewhere down the track, I think.  I don't think you offered a draw to me, I didn't see any chance to accept one, and I certainly can't see any sure way to win in the future.  

Oh well, good luck thumbsup.gif

We've had a couple of games. There was some mild slaughtering involved, as I recall...

Thanks for the game.  You made some very good moves.  Some not so good moves also, but I made one particularly not so good move that forced me to give up my advantage, and then hand it straight over to you.  I'm probably lucky to get a draw after it.  I even looked at that variation and originally tossed it out, but coming home after a long day at uni, my mind wasn't really on it.  But credit where it's due thumbsup.gif Well done.

lol yeah I tend to play that way, I am capable of playing well, but have the concentration of a jack rabbit.   Once I saw you make that mistake to give me the advantage, I made sure I was going to at least draw it...there was little I could do the get out of that check roundabout.... so I decided not to be greedy and try something where I'd muck up, and take the draw.
