Even if I had a huge desire to get better at fullstacking, and I do have one but it's not nearly as big a desire as other things I want to do, I still think it'd be a bad idea because it'd be messing with my livelihood when it's completely unnecessary. I have literally zero financial pressure, and as long as it remains possible to do so, I will have none for my entire life and I won't ever have to really work for more than a 2 hours per day, because of shortstacking. I can do whatever I want all the time! I just don't see why I should mess with that. Whats the point really? What am I trying to gain? More money so I can buy some jacuzzis?

Also I love you too even though you cheated against me!!!!!!!!!!


haha, how did I cheat against you?


huh? I was told it was you that cheated against me on ICC. You know, making a fake account, getting the rating high up all by using a computer and then finally playing me and beating me? Did I get bad info? I know it was a 2+2er and I thought they said it was you, but perhaps I got mixed up! IF SO I APOLOGIZE!


Whaaaa? I'd like to hear more about this. 2+2ers are a treacherous lot.

Thought I mentioned it on one of my videos. A chessplayer I know who knew this 2+2er admitted it to me after I insisted that my opponent was cheating. He told me the guy was 2200 irl but I told him that theres no way this guy wasn't cheating, especially if he was really just 2200...so he fessed up and told me he was actually a 2+2er rated like 1000, and I thought he told me it was cowpig but really I could be wrong, so forgive me if am making a false accusation! I definitely definitely could have gotten the handle wrong.

Haha, no that was definitely not me. My account on ICC is acidca, and I've definitely never played against you. Strange that someone would tell you that guy was me... Who was it that told you that?

Weird ok, I'm sorry you are not a cheater!!! Its possible that I simply misforgot. I knew you were on ICC and I don't really know MANY other 2+2ers on ICC, at least at the time, so I may have just assumed he said it was you? I DUNNO.

Greg, you shouldn't care what any people say about this short stacking. They don't pay your rent. And if it's some random group of people they would probably tear you down before they would build you up. :) Just IGNORE them and do what you want.

I'm sure you needed me to tell you all this. :p

hey curtain, I was wondering why you don't play on the playchess server.

It's the chess server owned by chessbase. I think you get 6 months or something free with chessbase or fritz.

playchess.com is a server by chessbase. As like with icc (i think), you don't need to pay for an account since you are a IM title and titled players are allowed to play for free. You can though just try it for a month free without proving that you are an IM just to see if you like the server. The interface in my opinion is way better. if you want to try it, the site to download it is playchess.com and you download the free client there.

there is NO WAY IN HECK that curtains is an International Master, owns chessbase and fritz and doesn't know about Playchess.com

So I think there is a mix up.

ICC is by far better than that place...players much stronger.

no i don't think the playes are stronger but just that there are more stronger players. In fact ICC is much worse in user interface.. i mean who wants to keep entering commands to do everything.. its ludicrous. so curtains if you think you can get as high a rating on playchess as you can on icc in 5 min games i tend to strongly doubt that. Although on playchess 5 min isn't given its own separate category but just included with blitz rating... if playchess had all the same players play that play on icc playchess would be better in every aspect. i think most would agree

well there doesn't have to be a problem for it to not be as good as playchess. im sure it won't kill you to even play one game on playchess to see the difference for yourself. infact you don't even need to download anything to try because you can go to playchess thru chessbase 9 help->online upgrade and create a new account and give it a shot.
