Saru (White) [Wins] vs Paranoid Android (Black)

Very close game most of the way through, well played. :tu:

Thanks for playing. You had me on the ropes right from the beginning when I made a silly mistake early on. I never really recovered and spent the rest of the game reacting instead of acting. Looking forward to the return match, though :)

Thanks for the enjoyable game, Thistle. We have one more to go, and since you will be playing White I'll wait till you start off .

Cheers,

Thanks Tiggs. We're all square 1-1 in the tournament now (though I think you have the edge over me in all games we've played to date). Very tough game :)

The Dark Side - I've just started my first game with you. Good luck, aye

The dark side (white) v. KarlisUM (black) -- black wins

Thanks for the game Dark side. I think I won this game more by luck than by better play (because of one oversight by you, where you lost a bishop).

I have started our second game, where I play white.

Here's to an enjoyable game, :tu:

Very well played, Saru. :tu:

I agree with your after-match assessment - if you'd given up B6, it would have been a much different game. You'd have been a in a much better position.

I don't think that this game has been reported as yet:

Karlis (White) wins v Paranoid Android (black)

Thanks for the Game PA -- I think your Queen "tripped" rather badly early in the game while looking at my Rook, and I won't be taking our next (present) game lightly. :tu:

Sumydid[White] vs Tiggs[black]...

Sumydid: We meet again. Good luck, though you won't need it!

Tiggs: Ah, Mr Sumydid, I've been expecting you... * Strokes white cat *

Sumydid: Did..... Sumy Did. * Sips shaken martini *

Sumydid: I'll take the bait.

Tiggs: * Looks innocent *

Sumydid: * steps cautiously forward *

Tiggs: * Opens the pit containing sharks with lasers *

Sumydid: Well done, old friend. You pulled the rabbit out of the hat this time, but, we'll meet again one day. * swims through underground tunnel *

Tiggs wins.

Well played, chap. Apologies for the shark pit.

Paranoid Android (white) [wins] vs The Dark Side (black)

Well played. I'd never tried that opening before, and I think I'll keep it aside for a Blitz game, because there's just too much thinking out all the possibilities in correspondence chess.

btw, Karlis - well played. You're right, I did overplay my Queen in the hope of you overlooking that Rook. I did see your possible counter-move, but didn't see all the ramifications. Well played. I won't be so cavalier next time.

The Dark Side (White) vs TiggsUM (Black)

TiggsUM Wins.

Very good game, chap. It was really close, pretty much all the way up until your Bishop got stuck.

That's all my matches done. Thanks to everyone for playing :yes:

Well, I'm hoping that PA can channel Kasparov again in his match vs Karlis, but Karlis is looking pretty unstoppable at the moment.

Paranoid Android (white) vs KarlisUM (black) [wins]

Very well done, Karlis. Sorry Tiggs, I did my best but Karlis did a number on me. I actually saw his QxP move before I made my last move, and thought I could counter it. Unfortunately I didn't see his follow-up Rook move until after he made the move and I was forced to take a closer look at the position. It was pretty obvious on reflection, but that's just the way things go sometimes.

Ah well - at least I can console myself in being the only person to beat Tiggs outright in this tournament.

Regards,

* P.S - crap, I thought I'd played all my games, but I just noticed I still have a game in hand against Dark Side. I'm just about to challenge him to the rematch, but it only has a bearing on who will come out third or fourth (or perhaps equal third) between myself and Saru.

* P.P.S - And it seems Dark Side is currently playing his maximum number of games at the moment, so that will have to wait at least until he finishes a game.

I know. I watched the match.

I'm surprised you didn't hear me screaming "Nooooooooooooooo" in Australia after you moved your Rook to D2. If you'd moved the King to G2 then things would have been much more interesting.

However - it's not over just yet. Karlis still needs to beat Thistle to win overall.

I'm still trying to get in touch with Thistle however she seems to have disappeared for the moment, if I don't hear anything from her soon we'll need to discount her matches from the tournament to see things to a conclusion.
