Why won't they play tonight? There's still plenty of time.

Re: Rafachat vol.78 FFS, another Rafole final :mad:

i just hope they wont end up in a covered court, somewhere....

I remember one year, it was a grass tournament, Nando was in the final and it rained cats and dogs. they played the final on a indoor HC in the end with 10 persons in attendance. nando lost, of course

Li NA she was 6-4 4-0 up

Fed would have relished playing Nadal on the wet damp clay today, Fed owns those conditions

I think it was Nottingham, right Michael? And wasn't it vs Karlovic but I'm a senile grandma, Michael know better for sure, he has phenomenal memory I must say!

And Hemazen, I read there's thunderstorm in Rome already atm.

Ok, chess programmers, professionals and... CD2 care about comptures playing against each other. The outcome of computer matches provides information about how algorithms differ from each other, and which programs respond better to chess positions that appear. It doesn't sound too exciting to me and some of my friends.

Quote:
Chess is becoming more and more boring by the influence of computers and the computer like style of the human players. Where are the genius attacks like Fischer and Kasparov did them today?
Fischer is dead and Kasparov has retired Obviously humans are affected by computers. After all they train with computers. But humans are still humans and not machines. Chess at the top has become much more "concrete" due to the influence of computers. There is more emphasis on calculation and less on intuition and general guidelines.

Quote:
As the computers become more and more powerful they start to scarify pieces for positional advantage. hopefully the humans follow this trend.
I don't understand what you mean here. People can still enjoy watching top players play against each other. So what if computers have surpassed humans? Is anybody bothered by the fact that computers solve numerical problems better than humans? Why would it be different for chess?

think you are right Maria but it also happened in Nottingham in 1997 when Karol Kucera beat Henman in a semi final

they may have to cancel the final, then no one wins
