Sounds good. That used to be how things happened here a lot. It'd be nice to see more of that once more.

Retired from TB Pente, but still playing live games & exploring variants like D, poof and boat

This guy zoey sitting for hours with his laptop on the couch crunching through every possible outcome of a game talking about ned taking his time. What is this 20 minute game settings nonsense. Speed pente or nothing at all. Make it 2 minute per player and then you will see who the real master is....... pente_gon. I suspect pente_gon is more than just a little faster than you zoey.

Can we setup pente_gon v zoeyk 2:2 settings? I'll bring the popcorn and beer

Speed is definitely not my strong suit.
I can do it, but there will be some time outs.
Karl is the king of speed. Thats one of his top strengths.
Pente_gon is faster than me, by a touch. But I'm unsure how he plays in speed. Havnt seen it.
In 20 min set tho. I am rusty. But over 10 years ago I was pretty dang good at it. Good enough to win the 2010 live masters tourney. The Carsons75 tournament.

I would say over 90% of my pente games are live play. I can crunch faster than you think mumix.

No. Karl does. I was never very good in speed. My brain calculates slow. Karl calculates faster than anyone I've ever seen. My strength is in 20 minute game. And if boat pente, I function best on 40 min timer. Especially if I been smoking weed.

Vic by the way. Besides my sloppy 3rd. The game you won. Your pair and then the diag post 3, just so you know that was a form of adzi. You put stone in my shoe that I didnt have time to remove because running late. Keep up with that style of play and try more complex forms. You will increase your level with that thinking. Gg

i guess i am a bit confused because my dashboard clearly proclaims you as koth in speed, z.
are you saying this is incorrect?

King of a two-man hill. I think zoey was referring to my speed pente tournament crowns, which were won long ago, in a more competitive era.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

i cannot help but laugh.
is the pride so great that every accomplishment needs to be dismissed?
"king of two"
"didn't want to bully him"
"brought my 'b' game"
i shouldn't laugh.
it's sad.
