Tell no lies, but embellishing the story a little bit never hurt anyone.

Anyway not long ago I bragged about my chess prowess. Then I lost five games in a row. Now I'm under .500 and get the crap kicked out of me by people of all ages, from across the globe.

It really chaps my hide.

Just won two games against hacks. Not proud but better than losing against hacks. Which I've done.

Dang, I've been on a tear lately. I mated some dude rated 100 points higher than I in 13 moves.

Thats the the cool thing about the game. No cat 6 racing crap. Challenge someone and it's mano a mano. Lose and it's like death. Win and it's like being reborn. I hear the angels a'singin'.

Just because I wrecked doesn't mean you all are rid of me. Now, I just plan to get back to the Rando stuff, and doubles, but do them amazingly fast. I can really be an annoying sob then.

So I've managed to claw my way a few games above .500 in the chess world. Playing Indians is a hoot. They play slash and burn chess and can't be bothered to learn the basic openings, so if you stay calm you can build some nice streaks against them. Last night one fell right into the fried liver attack, just the way the books spell it out. I don't even bother with that openning against American players, even the lowest rated ones.

Try fried liver on me, and I would just throw up on you. Liver, fried or otherwise, is horrid.

If you like that defense, try playing it with the White pieces (King's Indian Attack). Or a little more sophisticated, the Reti or Catalan opening.

Oops, you meant Indian people and not the Indian defenses. It seems like if you know an opening well and they don't bother, you can easily build an advantage early on.

Get off my lawn. Seriously.

My rant; Get off the lawn, seriously, had serious potential only to descend into Apocalyptic Col. Kurtz Escherian madness regarding human figures crouched over black and white squares filled with black and white figures. Go figure.

Dudelsack's method of trolling for marks is brilliant, hilarious, but rapidly losing its edgier start.

You must be a non-player to consider a descent into that kind of madness to be lacking in edginess. It's not just a game ... But yeah I can see how this direction could lack general appeal.

Lycra, good lord! At my age I'm happy with a good fitting pair of undershorts to keep the fellas up where they used to be and not between my thigh and the edge of the saddle!

I haven't studied any Queen side openings except the Tarrisch defense yet. I'm getting my ass kicked in a closed game right now, but what the heck. And I just can't get my rating over 1000 to save my soul.
