Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
We have had 2½ months to complete this tournament, and, after fordeiting
any players who did not complete their games, due to Internet problems or whatever, this is the Final Crosstable with the Final Results. I thank everybody for participating, especially those who made every effort to complete all their games. WizardN01 wins the Event, a half-point ahead of Bartvinnik.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
Round 1: Grim vs Zug
Shocking no one: Zug takes it. 0-1
 
Round 5, Grim vs. Thorny
Again, losing: 0-1
 
I've got a perfect record so far ... :)

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
I'm five hours behind UTC. I can be on early in the morning (between 11 and 12 UTC) or late at night, during the week.
 
Week ends, I can get on just about any time, but you need to let me know.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
thornydevil has announced that he is leaving Caissa (On the Miscellaneous BB) but did not say anything bout his Caissa Lives games. I am going to give him a week to read to read this post and to message me as to his plans. If I don't hear from him I will then forfeit him in his remaining games.

Well, Mr. Wizard..it looks like there is nobody home. I think the idea of live games was a great idea.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
RAPTOR, I appreciate your efforts to get all your games in! If all the entrants had been equally motivated the Event would be over by now. I know your comment was tongue-in-cheek but I don't get discouraged easily, and I will see this tournament through to the end.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
I've been having issues with Caissa's java interface not loading on my PC. No explanation. Doesn't work on either Firefox or IE.
 
Might have to try loading a new version, or backup an older version.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
The latest version of java came out a couple weeks ago, the experts still recommend you keep java disabled though. I've been using it here without any apparent problems.

Wiz, I'm on Eastern Time. I can make most evenings. Just give me a heads-up.

Raptor (0) - Grim (1)
 
An unfortunate opening mistake for Raptor. Otherwise, a tactically sound game.

The Grim-RAPTOR game was played with the wrong colors, as Grim was supposed to have White, but I will count it.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
I went back to the Old Site today for the first time in about 8 months and was quite shocked to find that I had messages there which never showed up here on the New Site. All were regarding the Caissa Live event. So, you members of long standing might want to check your messages on the Old Site, and may find some which didn't reach you here.

WELL Now I understand why he whipped me in 3 moves. I was playing the wrong color. I DEMAND a rematch so he can whip me in 5 moves.

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
And in my most embarrassing defeat ever ...
 
I was shown why I shouldn't always pin the knight agains the queen.
 
Wiz slaughtered me in 7 moves.

Spud, will you post a date and time you can play our game here? If you will post here, I will confirm it and we can get this game played. There are only two games left in this event, yours with me and yours with JesusIsMyLord. Thanks!

Re: Live Game Tournament, CAISSA LIVES!
THX Wiz for all the efforts and bringing all until the end!
I find my result (4. place) as good - those 3 "killers" have been too strong, :-(
but all the other games I have won. :-)
regards!
Peter
