The Next Bobby Fischer


The Next Bobby Fischer, originally uploaded by karoluscamilius.

I remember playing chess with my brothers. My third older brother in particular was pretty good at it, when we played, he won 98 times, okay, 99 times out of 100. But the sole win I had came after years of agonizing defeat. There was this rare occasion when I was able to find an opening on his impenetrable defense and attacked with my knight, before you knew it, "CHECKMATE!" That was one of the best feelings in the world, being able to trash-talk a semi-grandmaster. Lord I'm good!

After that it was back to normal, I lost the games that followed, unsurprisingly. The next Bobby Fischer, or Eugene Torre to localize, certainly isn't me. hehehe.

hehehe... nice combination of really good photo plus a cool story to remember. i play chess too but im not that good.

donG: Thanks bro! Maybe we should have a Tournament of the Not So Goods. hehehe.

Nice shot!

And I'm not as weel that good in chess.

btw,
The answer is NO. AV companies cannot spread viruses to sell their products. Misconception talaga yan. Did you know na employees will be terminated right away kahit accidentally nakapagspread ng virus?! Ganun kabigat ang parusa!

talagang impressive ang AMPON mo, nice one. they say that chess is the game for the enlightened ones - yung mga matalino at nag-iisip. Pilitin ko man mabilang sa "enlightened ones" , ayaw sa akin nung game, haaay. pwede bang bingo na lang?

Chyng: Uy thanks for getting back to me regarding the question. :D I appreciate it. I was really really really just curious about it that's all. ;)

rheiboy17: Ayos ba yung kodak doc? hehehe. Hindi nga ako masyado nag-iisip sa chess e, tira lang ng tira, kaya pag "touch-move" ang labanan e talong-talo ako. :D Malas din pala ako sa bingo. Go-bingo kaya?...
