I have a minimal experience with chess clubs, but I am certainly impressed with SWCC's consistent offerings of rated matches week after week and month in month out.

Did Cardenas tell you that I wanted a half point bye for the first round in the open? I'm coming next week if you can put me down.

Too bad Awonder can't be there... he's too busy winning in Greece!

Go Awonder!

Due to a computer problem I've lost all my games :( If anyone has any games we played (especially my loses) since 2009 it would be greatly appreciated if you could e-mail them to me in any format.

matthew.waller@att.net

Thanks!
Matt Waller

JB said...

Geez Matt, All your lost games? It'll take quite a while to send a file that size.

Just kidding! Hope you are able to retrieve all your games.

btw, what is best way to enter game scores into database?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I feel stupid, should've had it backed up.

Loses are the best to analyze :) Lots of games I should've lost too..hehe.


I personally like to analyze my games with a notebook and pen right after they are played and then after I do that put them in to chessbase and analyze my analysis with an engine (I usually use Firebird, which is free btw.)

JB said...

Thanks, I like that idea of writing down your own thoughts first before they are either confirmed or swayed by other means.

Anonymous said...

I have not lost my mind. It's backed up on disk somewhere!

So what's the problem if you have it backed up on disk somewhere ?

"Yeah, I feel stupid, should've had it backed up." Note the word "should've", meaning should have. I don't have it backed up and appreciate the people who have helped me out so far :)

i used to obsess over my losses (note spelling) until i realized losing wasn't so bad. .oh btw i can't help you i beat you in 05' --big wink-- you're prolly still obsessing over that one aren't you? j/k mike 'the loud mouth' penway p.s. it was a scotch i was white you were black when you played 4...Nf6!!!(and old ploy of some obscure 20th century romantic wishful thinker) immediately i was lost in the opening but managed by curmudgeonly indifference to regain my composure and watched as you blundered with a rook on the seventh rank and your queen hovering over my king thanks btw now i obsess over my wins ;P hey robin can we turn this blog into a place where one can throw barbs at one's former opponents while we discuss old games? rattle some chains so-to-speak i'm all for it one more thing please relate to mr james coons that jay cutler has now thrown for over 3000 yds this year and the bears (10-4 soon to be 11-4)won their division (rather easily) see you in GB next week

sorry 11-4 soon to be 12-4 ahem
