Re: "idontknow" is a Dr. Greg Miller's creature.

I seriously think, after having read ALL previous messages posted regarding the above mentioned player, that "idontknow" is a creature purposefully created by Dr. Miller, since he is a scientist.

Been tinkering with a free download called "Nagaskaki" I think its different than most and really does a few things useful to early players. The personalities move fast,and get better as you move up.

Anyone can input a move from a Prog at anytime, so its going to be trust, so I vote no. Reason being a Non Cent can play very well, Ive thought even may win against a "shill" inserting well anylyzed moves from Progs,who knows.. it's asking for more corruption. The only other thing popular is speed c...

So its second round in tournament? Are those the time controls?
I thought it was a match someone started.
I would never agree to those time controls
I have completed all my matches for over 5 years now

Help with teaching?

Get them started with a tiny, tiny board.
They will think they can identify the
pieces, and learn to win a piece in a few
lines, and keep the interest up
they get interested when they play on a
bigger board, trying the tactics from the
"starter" set Just one idea..
