    i thought it meant when the grandmasters drew a game, but apparently it means when they draw a match (a series of games).

    Well done elder, you have mastered the copy and paste function for web addresses, there is clearly potential in this one yet!

    I mean, we've both basically said the same thing, from the same sources: a "grandmaster draw" is a draw by agreement to end match play. The "draw death" I spoke of is something else entirely-the inability to resolve a game-ever-due to complete neutralization-something that hasn't even occurred with computer programs....while,yes,there are a lot of draws at higher levels of match play, matches still achieve resolution due to wins-there hasn't been any draw death......yet.

    I also included a quote from the same article, explaining that a "grandmaster draw" is what I've been saying it was, rather than what you seemed to be saying it was?

    Have you ever considered going back to kindergarten, or perhaps taking a course in reading comprehension? Is English your second language? Are you dyslexic? Maybe it's your eyesight? I wonder what the problem is......

    Are you saying you're a plagiarist?

    I've got a couple of degrees, btw......still don't understand what you're getting on about....of course, they're in engineering and physics....oh, and religious studies-I have a degree in religious studies? Perhaps you suffer from glossolalia? [​IMG]

    Then again, there are those who suspect I'm a stripper named "Topjob," instead of the fine figure of a man that I am....[​IMG]

    Gentlemen... Cut the crap. I'm tired, I'm grumpy... and I'll lock this thread very quickly if the personal attacks don't stop.

    Am I coming across clearly enough?

    Look, John, let's start over, okay? I mean, I have a reputation as one of the nastiest people here, and I just got out of the "penalty box," and don't really see much sense in both of us being penalized for a simple misunderstanding....

    In the first place, pasting a link and quoting the same article isn't called "plagiarism." It's called cross-posting; I was unaware, when I posted, that you had posted the same content earlier-but, since neither of us wrote it it can't be "plagiarism," anyway, since we both cited the same source.

    I also-I have to point out (being one of the nastiest people here) that I quoted from the article directly, and it supports what I said about "grandmaster's draws."

    I also have to point out-again-that what I originally posted was not about draws (which have occurred in grandmaster, international master and master level play since the beginning of the twentieth centure and earlier) but about the so-ca;;ed "draw death" of chess, which has by no means occurred yet, even between two supercomputers with the same programming.

    Lastly, of course, I'd direct you to this post, made ten years ago, and quote it below:

    Let's not have this conversation again, okay John? There are any number of people on this forum who know for a fact who I am, what I used to do, what I'm doing now, and what my education has been.......I have to add that, being somewhere on the spectrum myself, and knowing a number of people who suffer from your disorder, I have a lot of respect for your putting yourself out on here. Be that as it may, I'm not the most patient of people when it comes to being called "wrong," especially when I'm not. We should just make nice............
