Because it is 100% clear to me that he will never accept it, because he knows he will lose.

Re: Thank you all!

As Lyudmil seems to have no intention to reply to my last move e4 (judging from his ramblings) I propose a community vote on the challenge: 1) Lyudmil Tsvetkov lost the challenge 2) No, give him more time to come up with a move If the community votes that he lost, the result of the vote should be th...

Re: 8:2 - quite convincing DRAW

i think lyudmil has a very keen eye, but i get the impression analysis bores him. By his own admission he studied the position for a couple of hours and presented his analysis in dozens of posts. It does not seem to bore him, he is just - let's find a polite word - very inefficient at it. my hesita...

Re: The CCC challenge: Possioto vs Tsvetkov

Dear Lyudmil, please do not spam this thread with off-topic positions and posts. Just state with a simple "yes" or "no" whether you intend to continue our game after my move e4 or not. Your posts are sometimes a bit confusing and contradictory - at least to me, which might be entirely my fault - so ...

I do not care how much Possioto and Noomen will suffer, but the draw has been proven. :)
Still waiting for your move. Or do you already resign and admit defeat?

Re: 8:2 - quite convincing DRAW

This was already debunked by me, in your enging vs. engine matiches always Ra1+ Ke2 Ra2+ Kf3? was played. I already pointed to the much stronger Kd3! after which black is lost. But thats already history, lets get back to our challenge after e4 after the rook trade. I do not know why Andreas suggeste...
