My current account at LiChess is “DoomerDiaries.” According to the computer analysis feature there, I just played a perfect game. In years of having computers analyze my games, this is only the second perfect game I’ve ever played. Given how complicated the position was at times, this is 100% just dumb luck.
BTW, “perfect” means I didn’t make any moves the computer thinks sucked. It does not mean I always played the best move.
Here is the game:
Against a not-particularly strong opponent, I managed to play a mistake-free game (according to LiChess.org computer analysis.) My first clean game. My moniker on LiChess is “Happy_Puppy.”
If you’re looking for A.P. Heat! or other advantage play information, I’ve migrated all of that to my new site, www.advancedadvantageplay.com . I look forward to seeing you there!
Below are some poetry thoughts from Wayne Dodd, from a course I took from him in 1991 at Ohio University. I posted this before on PC, but it’s been a while. Enjoy!
For 3 years I played alongside two fine Irish musicians, Nick (flute) and Allison (fiddle) Buckmelter, in a weekly gig at Dargan’s in Ventura, CA. Sadly, we never captured video during this time. But, one day a patron recorded audio of our gig. This video is a set of tunes from that gig.
This video is round one of the 1988 Cardinal Open Chess Tournament, which took place in Columbus Ohio, in January, 1988. I have identified a few of the titled players to the best of my memory.
