@joc You've marked this down on the score charts as a win for me. Neither of us won, the game was a draw.

Not that I mind getting some extra points for free! :lol:

Thanks for the heads up!  Fixed!

It's 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points if you lose.

For 6 games won = 18 points

For 7 games lost = 0 points

For 1 game drawn = 1 point

That gives you 19 total points, not 43. The score sheet is correct. I hope so anyway or I've been working my scores out all wrong!

Pettytalk

Pettytalk wins both games with joc44. However, the wins were possible only due to joc's total distraction of not concentrating on the games. Anyway, I should not get any credit for the wins, so that Danydandan may place third in the tournament, as he is proving to be a much better player than I am, for sure.

Distraction is part of the game though.  There are always distractions...internal and external.  Danydandan however has risen fast from novice to expert...in one tournament!  Really an incredible feat in my opinion.

Depends entirely on one's definition of expert.  You learned quickly, you played well, and you did well!

I agree that definition can make an expert of anyone. I define an expert as one who consistently beats me at the game, any game for that matter. Although, defining myself as a good Christian I can always claim that it's better to give than to receive. And I give away games too, like yourself. I did not win against you, Joc, you gave me the wins. An expert, by further definition, is one who knows when to give and when to take for any game, or for anything else, for that matter. I'm no expert, as I kept giving in the hope of taking, but at the end I was left with only giving, as I gave at the wrong time, and did not take when the taking was ripe. The beginning is always a reflection of the end. In chess, the whole game, the outcome, usually depends on the opening, so say most experts. And in chess the definition for an expert is GM, Grand Master. A Grand Master is one who knows how to manipulate his pawns. And the best of all Grand Masters is one that can manipulate the opponent's pawns as well.

I second your second sentence. He quickly learned from me, as I taught him all the wrong moves, mine. I can say, from experience, that Dany knows how to use his pawns well. And in our sparring, I'm just one of his pawns. He is also becoming a formidable closer, besides the openings; a regular calculating slayer of kings! And he slays with Gusto!

I officially motion to place him third in the UM tourney.

I think I'd still finish third or fourth or fifth. I can't beat AR, Earl of Trump's, Saru and I think Nuke would beat me too.

AR is beating me at the moment.......again.

I am beating you. But nowhere near as easily as in your earlier games.

At your rate of improvement you will be the UM Champion next Tourney.

I have a feeling I'll need a lot more experience to break this ceiling I've hit.
