    I currently have 4 games against jankrb, and he beats me like an old rug.

    Edit: So far, my record is 1 win, 1 draw, and 10 losses. When he publishes a book of his best games, I should get billing as his co-author!

    That isn't so bad. My own record against jankrb is 1 win, 7 draws, 28 losses.

    Use the analyse board feature.
    It adds c.500 RHP points to your OTB elo.

    So much for my dream of big royalties! He's a good player, so if we have to lose to someone, he's a top choice.

    That would make me about ... ummmm ... where's me calculator? ... 500.

    No OTB grade since nineteen eighty something or other.

    My record is 0 wins, 7 draws and 9 losses from 16 games.

    Game 7331359 was probably the closest I was to a win, but it didn't work out in the end. The main feature of that game was my bishop pinning Jan's rook for 16 consequtive moves - must be a record of some sorts!

    Ha! Jan beat me only once.

    Yes, tough guy. My win:draw:loss record is 3:4:3.

    Funny thing is I beat him easily in '08 (2:0), in '10, he won 3 games and I won one, and in '11 we draw all 4 games.

    ''funny thing is I beat him 'easily' in '08''



    From what appears to be your second game with him, finishing 17:04:08;
    Crikey, I hate to think what would constitute a 'tough elongated game'... 😉

    Game 4691720

    Edit: I did realise what you meant, that you won the challenge itself 2-0...
    'easy' is probably not quite the best of descriptions, I was thinking anyway 🙂

    I beat him once. Since then it's been brutal.

    Yes, you are right. The second game should have been a draw with correct play. But still, I won it quite easily.

    Thanks for mentioning that!

    I can imagine your feelings.
    I have this record against Atticus2: 18 wins, 31 daws, 31 losses.
    The majority of the wins are games which were not played at all....
    So the record is even worse....

    Apart from that, I have a lot of bad results against quite some page one players.
    For some reason I will not mention them together with Atticus2 😛
