Don't fool yourself that only programmers care. :lol: 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? As the computers become more and more powerful they start to scarify pieces for positional advantage. hopefully the humans follow this trend.

I’m fond of the green turquoise, but I don’t find it very often. I don’t have the right coloring for the blue turquoise. It looks so great on navajo skin.

I found this tibetan necklace and it’s interesting how much it echoes the Navajo necklaces.

If Rafa brings a similar form as against Birdman, Ferrer is sooo toast its not even funny. Ferrer is like a poor mans Nadal without the twister of death.

There are several cats (all black and white) in the 3rd floor apartment of the building across the street. One of them likes to sleep on top of the balcony cupboard. First he jumps on the (quite thin) balcony railing, walks along it until he gets close to the cupboard, then jumps on top of the cupboard.

I wanted William to go; can't believe the judges have been giving him so much praise, he really isn't that good. :smash:

I actually thought Kathryn was going to go after that mishap. Also because she didn't have a good enough sob story. :lol: It was funny how the other 3 had had to overcome poverty, a harsh childhood etc... but all she could come up with was a bad breakup. :spit:

I always like Derek and the dances he creates so I was sorry about it. I have to think she doesn’t have much of a fan base.

The Jenkins woman is annoying to me. Maybe it’s the way she talks or her background, but she seems a little bit phony to me. Also, can’t stand Mark.

Even though I love him, I think Donald Driver is the worst dancer of those left.

For me, it seems to be set up for Jenkins to win, but I could be wrong.

If Rafa brings a similar form as against Birdman, Ferrer is sooo toast its not even funny. Ferrer is like a poor mans Nadal without the twister of death. There is always the chance of an upset but I think the chances here are veeeerrrrrrry remote.

You must look for it in you tube — or I will, and post it. It’s sure to be on you tube sometime.

to summarize, Ferrer put the ball deep in the corner to Rafa’s backhand then swept it over to Rafa’s forehand corner, Rafa just getting to that one and meanwhile Ferrer came to the net and put down a drop volley (not the best but still) and Rafa ran diagonally on the court to get to the ball and hit it for a crosscourt winner on the line. Rafa put his head down during the run. He dug it out.

"(It's the) best thing possible (for me) after a fantastic time in Barcelona and Monte Carlo. To keep playing in (a) clay tournament and then in the final without losing a set is something fantastic," Nadal said. "We can forget the tournament of Madrid -- that wasn't clay."

:lol:

Playing Rafa is always a challenge. He's the best player ever on this surface. But after 2011, I know I can win now," Djokovic said. "I need to step into the court and take chances and not allow him to move me around."

Djokovic called it his "best match on clay this year."

I know that they do run computer matches :rolleyes:

How sensitive :hug: Did I question your knowledge? :awww: That's right, I did not.

Don't fool yourself that only programmers care. :lol:

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.

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 :sad: 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.

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?
