If they'd not distracted him so much, he'd probably have played an even better game. I hope all the hype doesn't cause him to get burned out before he's 10! If he doesn't get fed up with all that hype, maybe he'll someday be a world-class player.

Yeah, even I teared up a bit at the end when he lost on time!

That is probably the person I will study in 20 years.  If I can still remember how to set up a board then...

It may not even take him that long to become a grandmaster. I curious to see how long it takes. He may come to be the youngest ever.

Mr.Obvious won our game.  Really good at defense.  I attacked hard and he didn't yield.

Belgians are sneaky, speak out of both sides of their mouths at the same time, one side for Fleming, the other side for Walloon ;-)

In which case the German is coming thru telepathy, with your mouth already too engaged ;-)

My typical chess play was ... melee to open things up, then wait for the other guy to make a mistake.

You want to play the winner of this next game?  I'll bet you a MD State lottery ticket that you lose to either of us...

And your opponent was probably doing exactly the same thing!

I played some games yesterday, but didn't manage to record them. I won a game, but lost 5. I enjoy playing good opponents, it's more challenging. And Rick was indeed a challenging opponent. That whole winning/losing thing is just an ego trip, anyway. I play for the beauty of the game, and the fun of finding good ideas.

Yeah, but winning proves the success of the strategy.  Unless you lose.  THEN it was a tactical error, LOL!
