I seem to recall an Adanac-robinson game from the 2006 WC where they finish with a tense endgame with one or two rabbits each?

Here it is.

Yeah that's the one, thanks! Oh my, are you sure you don't wanna play that endgame starting on 77g (with a two-step move in the actual game!)?

To call such positions uninteresting would be to lie. I merely suggest that they are interesting for different reasons than are 'typical' endgames. But is different bad? No. Now that I have thought more, I don't want every position that is used in this event to strategically require exactly the same approach.
 
 


 
Week 2 setup and pairings:

 
 
chessandgo (1500) vs browni3141 (1592) 0-1
odin73 (1500) vs clyring (1500) 0-1

What if somebody tries to get an advantage by studying the position before the game? This seems a little bit unfair.

All players are allowed to study the position. There is no real way to stop this since withholding the position until the game's start would require me to attend every game- a commitment I am unwilling to make. Allowing players to see the positions in advance also permits the added benefit of using the same setup for each game during a week and seeing the thoughts on it from a greater variety of players.

What about rotational symmetry instead of mirror symmetry?  Mirror symmetry leads to positions where strength meets strength and weakness meets weaknees, whereas rotational symmetry leads to positions where strength meets weakness and weakness meets strength.  I'm not sure which is more typical and I'm not sure how to play in either case, but I imagine both types are common and thus both important.
 
I'm interested in this round, but soon will be travelling, so I will probably miss the live games and discussion. Undecided

I haven't seen a reference to scheduling. Do players play the game when want to? If that's so, when do you want to play browni?

There is no formal scheduling system in place.

Since the gameroom apparently doesn't handle the 90t properly, I suppose it should just be changed to 6h.

chessandgo, how about we just play next time you are online? As long as I am also of course. We seem to be on at some of the same times.

That's an interesting position, too bad I don't get to play it. I guess they are all interesting but this one is really imbalanced.
 
Edit: Good luck to all players! I'm not sure what to think about clyring vs. chessandgo. clrying has been doing this longer, but chessandgo is chessandgo. Hopefully it will turn out to be pretty even. I think experience with endgames should trump experience and skill in a normal game, but it would be crazy to underestimate chessandgo Wink
I will hopefully be able to watch and comment on both games. I'm not sure that I should give my thoughts on the position here though.
