OK, since it looks like we can't delete comments here:

I apologize for all personal attacks I have made.

Som Drinholm, you are very stupid.

Possibly, but I think it would be best if you stop the personal attacks. I hope I can get someone to just delete this entire thread. Like I said, I think people are taking this tournament far too seriously.

I will withdraw from the tournament then. I will finish all games (except this one, which I will resign from ) still being played, but please do not sign me up for more games.

The fact of the matter is that I don't have time for this tournament, not if it's going to be taken this seriously. I expected something which was more casual than what you guys want.

I apologize for the withdraw.

- Sam

I am going to delete this game if the issue with the game being marked as won by my opponent (when he had a lost position) is not resolved.

Thank you.

How come this game is marked as one where my opponent won?
Sam Trenholme Verified as Sam Trenholme wrote on
Done. Now let's end this game honorably.
Sam Trenholme Verified as Sam Trenholme wrote on
Yes, I think that would be fair. I don't think it's fair for me to declare this a victory unless my opponent resigns, runs out of time, or I checkmate him.
Sam Trenholme Verified as Sam Trenholme wrote on
OK, I feel it's fair to say I won this game. While the timeout did happen while the server was down
  • My opponent had not made a move for over two days when the server went down
  • The position is lost for black

I don't know what happened to this player, but unless I see a clear interest in continuing this game, I will delete it in the next few days (I understand I gave a one-month per-move time limit; however not making a move after the first move is pushing things)

How did I end up playing this game? I thought I made it clear that I can not play timed games because of my network connection. Please delete this game.

Hmmm...might be an interesting line. Still might be an interesting line.

Mr. Stockman, I realized I made a mistake when setting up this game. I meant for the game to be one where you have up to a week to make a move, but instead I accidently made a blitz game: A week for all moves.

This was not my intention. I would like to play you at schoolbook, but I would rather play at a much slower pace. A week for the entire game is far too fast for anyone to make the best move possible.

Is is OK if I delete this game and start another Schoolbook game with you before we play Deluxe Chess?

OK, since I normally only play slow games and you normally play fast games, I don't think I'll be able to play Deluxe Chess with you. :(

This game should be deleted from the logs: Dan only lost because he has been having technical problems with figuring out how to use the Game Courier interface.

I have written an interesting page on the opening.

Castling comes from Fergus Duniho's Grotesque Chess: The king may castle two or three squares towards the rook on the kingside, and two, three, or four squares towards the rook on the queenside. The rook leaps over the king to land besides the king. The king can not castle out of, through, or in to check. Both the king and rook that the king castles with must not have previously moved.
