Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Wonderful

The FACT is that if you could consistently repeat your performance of 1999, and Loek van Wely had the misfortune to repeat his, you would be deemed the stronger player.

Similarly, history will tell if my 2633 rating is a flash in the pan. To be frank I have no idea myself.

If Õim did not have use of a computer then his result in ICCF50 is astounding. However unless he uses one in future he won't do any better than he did there.

In any case this was all one big red herring. You tried, and succeeded, to distract me from the main issue. Which is that a tournament with a combined rating 560 points higher is a tougher tournament.

Naturally past performance is no guarantee of future results, but it's a **** good indicator when applied to a 15-strong tournament.

If this discussion is "silly, unnecessary and not creative" then you must shoulder the lion's share of blame. I started off posting only the Categories of recent WChs, which show a discrepancy between "postal" and non-postal. It was you that brought the tone down by stating that I was "implying" that Ivar Bern was not a worthy Champion, or that the winner of ChXX should apologise. And then accused me of getting further out of line.

Apparently you can twist words and insult people, and that's OK. But you get upset if they fight back. Cast out the mote in your own eye before looking at the spec in mine.
