Capablanca versus Alekhine
________________________________________
Just think of it: Imagine if these headlines posted in Beauos Ares:

due to logistical practicalities, the players and arbitors decided to settle upon a twelve game match... after 25 years as champion, it was found that twelve games were enough to settle who was champion of the world... and since it was a tie, and the rapids were 2-2, the two gentlemen decided to chance it all on one blitz game after 1-1 in two previous blitz games. Alekhine fashioned a prepared line in the cambridge springs defence, and make a king shelter, and burgeoning himself into a hole in a draw as black, is crowned world champion and upon being asked how he felt to wrest the crown from the cuban champion, who was busy with the ladies, just said: "awz, zshucks!"...

everyone had already gone home, so they just did it on playchess and icc.

since no suitable challengers of merit could be found for at least another nine or ten years, and nimzovitch found unsuitable or unstable despite perhaps demonstrating his number two place, instead opted for bogoljubow, only to die many years latter pennyless in a cold empty room, choked on a piece of meat lodged in his throat. authorities conjectured he in fact died of shame at winning from the old champ in a mere game of skittles... lamenting, twelve, twelve, like citizen kane, rosebud, rosebud...

Woohoo! Congratulations. :)

Did you learn any tricks on the way to this point that might help the rest of us reach 1500 with high accuracy?

why, of course. how much smarter are all these young kids at CTS chasing me or infront of me: wormstar, loomis, mousetrapper, likeforest, spacecowboy, and last but not least, temposchlucker, a bunch of bright kids. i must not say too much, and to sit in the back row quietly and listen to what all my elders in cognition say. those are some of the few things i am learning.
