I played this game last night, some 12h ago.

[Site "kurnik"]
[Date "2008.12.17"]
[White "e8e9"]
[Black "akrobatass"]
[Result "1-0"]
[Time "09:50:09"]
[TimeControl "600+2"]
[WhiteElo "1298"]
[BlackElo "1328"]

1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 d6 4. d4 g5
5. Bc4 c6 6. O-O Bg4 7. c3 h6 8. Qb3 Qd7
9. e5 b5 10. Be2 Na6 11. Nbd2 Nc7 12. Ne4 d5
13. Nf6+ Nxf6 14. exf6 Qd8 15. Re1 Ne6 16. Bxb5 cxb5
17. Ne5 Bd6 18. Qxb5+ Kf8 19. Nxg4 h5 20. Nf2 g4
21. Nd3 Qxf6 22. Qc6 Nc7 23. Bxf4 Bxf4 24. Nxf4 Qxf4
25. Rf1 Qe3+ 26. Kh1 Rc8 27. Rae1 Qd3 28. Qf6 Rh7
29. Re7 Re8 30. Rxf7+ Rxf7 31. Qxf7# 1-0

Remark 1. I lost two other games against
the same opponent, against his prepared
opening. The second time I have repeated
the opening on purpose since I thought that
up to a moment I was doing alright.

Remark 2. At "kurnik" IMs may have 1800+
or 1900+ rating. Very few players get 2000+.
Some jokers did a time ago with a computer
assistance and got promptly blocked.

Regards,

Wlod

Naeh, it wasn't any good (that game).

Thank you Taylor. I'll read this file with pleasure.

For a patzer I have impressive world champion numbers:

Alechine 2 (via my father)
Fischer 2 (via Paul Poschel)
Kasparov 2 (via Igor Ivanov)

***

It'd be nice if someone had a look
at the game from this thread. And
I just have played another one on the kurnik
server, I'll post it here, in this thread a
little bit later (or a few hours later).

Thank you, Taylor, best regards,

Wlod

If your Alekhine number is 2, then your Morphy number is 5. For

Yeah, Sanny gave me immortality because
I am nice to him and to his hopeless GetClub.

This somehow reminds me that when we discussed
Morphy number and similar on rgcm, I completely
forgot about my short path to many great players.
Before WWII, around 1930-32, my father studied
for one year in Southern France, in Montpellier.
One day he attended Alechine's simultaneous
exhibition, just to watch it. One of the participants
didn't show up, and when organizers asked for any
volunteer from the audience, my father was the first
to respond. His game was not short. Folks around
him were advising him to resign, that
supposedly it's not proper to continue in a lost
position, but my father had fun and kept playing
(perhaps he was not that badly lost after all).

By having Alechine number equal to 2, I have
number 3 for most of the first half of the 20th
century outstanding players, number 4 or less
for all great player but the newest crop and
the ones from the early Steinitz era and before
then. My shortest path to some modern players
may be due to my blitz games with Igor Ivanov,
Ed Formanek and Paul Poschel. For instance, Paul
Poschel has achieved draw in one of his tournament
games against Bobby Fischer:

http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1044581

It's not an accident that Sanny has selected me :-)

Regards,

Wlod

PS. I made Paul Poschel mad at one blitz
tournament. It was soooo funny, but not to him.
