47 ( +1 | -1 ) Best defensesAlthough I may not be in the same league (skill wise) as some of you: I like the Caro-Kann, the "Orthodox" defense with the Queen's Gambit, and now and then -- some variations of the Sicilian (like the Najdorf Variation) I started playing at this site not very long ago. "They" started me out with "ELO 1200" --- I must have been playing weaker players -- and am now up to an even "1400". Lately, playing some "better" players --- so I WILL lose, eventually!
19 ( +1 | -1 ) I think ...EDMASTER plays the best defense OTB as he puts it:
I EDMASTER WILL CRUSH YOUR SKULL OVER THE CHESSBOARD!
30 ( +1 | -1 ) Reply to "King of Pawns"I'm not very used to this site -- but, by looking at the "handles" "EDMASTER" and "King of Pawns"; I assume it's the same person. And, if we were to play a game: You probably WOULD: "CRUSH MY SKULL OVER THE CHESSBOARD" I played you (as you know) a couple of times at the "itsyourturn" site --- and you took me fairly easily ------
38 ( +1 | -1 ) Hi justholdingon!I'm not EDMASTER and I'm sure he would not want us confused! I'm glad to see you here. This is a great site with some really good players. As you will see, Brunetti is about to crush my skull in one of our games and maybe the other one eventually.
21 ( +1 | -1 ) Short note to "King of Pawns"Hi there: at least that's cleared up (confusion - by me - about two names in one message) I will find out, eventually, how to correspond directly (privately) with others -- like you. Thanks for your last note.
