    Still better to be named Marius than ypercube :)

    That's not so clear! You still have a nearly 1% chance of winning!

    Of course your real name might be Marius anyway ;-)

  • Ray Garrison ★ at 2009-01-05

    in spite of the stated odds, ypercube still has the power in his control to win the championship by winning all of his remaining games, whereas if Mojmir or I win all the rest of our games, we could still fail to win the championship.

    Nice Rororo keeps track of (some of) the many names of our friend yper!

    Oh yeah! Maybe yper and e.g. Ray Garrison could agree to temporarily exchange nicknames just before their game finishes, and then change back just after Rororo posts ;-)

  • ypercube at 2009-01-25

    You can make that a 100% RoRoRo :)

    Congrats, kyle !

  • FatPhil at 2009-01-25

    RoRoRo can't. I perhaps could, but I shan't unless such comments imply results of games still in progress. However, I will certainly congratulate kyle for his many many wins in this tournament, especially against the two top seeds.

  • ypercube at 2009-01-25

    Yes, my comment did imply that kyle has a sure win in one of his two remaining games. Comments like this one, for a game in progress may seem inappropriate, but this is the top league.

    I'd guess that one would not mind a comment in a chess agme between Fischer and Karsarov if a mate was imminent (2 or 3 moves ahead). Nor would anyone mind a comment on a Dots game where the running score is 13-9.

  • wccanard at 2009-01-25

    If a dots score is 13-9 then the game is already over. But even grandmasters miss easy mates when time is short (and 15 years ago I would have been able to give examples, but now I'm too rusty).

  • FatPhil at 2009-01-25

    In the very top chess games, the resignations typically tend to occur long before mate in [small number]. I think that in at least one of kyle's games at least, and for that matter at most, one participant should be considering resigning if they aren't having an in-game conversation that they don't want to terminate early (which I often do).

    “In the very top chess games, the resignations typically tend to occur long before mate in [small number].”

    Yes of course, *but* 15 years ago I would have been able to give you several specific examples of grandmasters missing mate in n<=4 in a time scramble. That was my point. What I'm hinting at is that I personally think that yper's comment is mildly out of order, and it's not the same as being 13-9 down in a dots game, because in a parallel universe Richard programmed the server here to record the game as a win the moment someone got 13 boxes, and the game ended on the server at that point. Of course in that parallel universe we'd all be enjoying the next dots championship by now…

    OK. It's more like a 12-9 game where the player with 12 is sure to get a 13, unless he blunders for the next 3 moves …

    And time scramble in Golem is rare i'd say :)

    Now it is official! Congrats Kyle! well done!

  • Dvd Avins at 2009-01-28

    Now it is accomplished. Kyle gets one more bit of satisfaction later, when it becomes official, that is, officially recognized by the site. When the last game of the championship section is completed, Kyle's list of tournaments will have a bold winner designation next to this one and recognition of his fete will cycle through the banner at the top of all our pages.

    Wasn't there a suggestion that we somehow turned it off once one player got to 100 percent?

  • ypercube at 2009-02-19

    RoRoRo somehow missed reporting the ypercube 2 - 0 Looser.

    A bug in the code FatPhil?

  • FatPhil at 2009-02-19

    You missed the post that he apparently didn't send because of wccanard's suggestion.

    However, yes there is a bug. It's clearly here:

    ($decided?"\tdecided=$decided":''),

    I shall fix it, and see if the fix kicks in next time a tournament draws to a close.
