where is the money in GO?
  • pitirre at 2004-10-12

    $50 for winning the king’s gambit tourney...

    that is nice.

    now, where is the moneyfor GO?

    come on, anyone playing chess can be assisted with a good chessprogram...but that can’t be so in GO.

    there arent good programs (yet) around for the GOplayer.

    what i mean is that anyone winning at GO is because he/she earned it.

    Twixt programs are a lot weaker than Go programs :-)

  • Tim at 2004-10-12

    Maybe Go players are simply much stronger than TwixT players? ;)

    Well hey, my cat’s breath smells like cat food.

    thanks...i see you all agree.

    If you have read the reasons of this king’s gambit tournament, you wouldn’t be asking.

  • pitirre at 2004-10-13

    where is the money in GO???

    Hi Rio,

    please remove from the conditions for MM Memorial in chess the point:

    Prize: 50$ for winner,

    to prevent such stupid discusions about the money.

    Thx and rgs.

    who cares about the money?

    where is the themathic tourney for GO
    ?

  • ypercube at 2004-10-13 I do not agree with Garyk about removing the prize, although I stand almost no chance of winning. Stupid discussions cannot be prevented.
  • Gregorlo at 2004-10-13

    I’m a little bit confused... and no post in this topic gave a glimpse of it...

    What is the discussion here? I think it’s not a kind of poll about thematic cup because there is another one in this forum (older than this one).

    So what are we talking about? please throw some light

  • pitirre at 2004-10-13

    gregorio, mine is better.

    stupidity is neccesary...so here i am.

    many “GREAT” men/women were considered stupid; jesus and his adulterous messages, perdo albizu campos and his idealistic world, alexander khalifman and his positional sacrifices and go seigen playin tengen.


    where is the money in GO????

    Hi Pitirre.

    Why dont you set up a prize yourself. I am sure Richard will consider a thematic tournament in Go as well if someone donates prze money

  • pitirre at 2004-10-13

    hhehehe...my money???

    where is the fun in that?

    i want to win (or at least try) the money of others.
