Hello
i think it is funny to discuss about jesus lawyers and other crazy stuff,but it doesn´t help the Sniper to survive! So what should Black do against the variation i mentioned? In the Sniper book there is no help available.. Maybe the true Sniper move order has to be buried.

Storey doesn't lose, he always gets what he really wants: attention.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

So he is his own lawyer?  Makes not knowing the difference between liable and libel even funnier!

Continuing.  So let's get this straight:  chess pub has no value but he wants 2 years as the wager?  What does Storey lose if he --for lack of a better term- loses?

Why do you all have to make a mountain out of a molehill.

I also beat Rowson with the Sniper!

Let me be clear Rowson I respect deeply - although he has had most of his opportunities on a plate - but has done extremely well when given them.


You don't respect a person's accomplishments if you actively belittle them by making them appear easier than they would be otherwise.

Protip: telling a powerlifter their lifts were accomplished by virtue of genetics/circumstance as a way to make up for your own mediocre lifts is ridiculous. Same applies to chessplayers.

Just to add my two cents in:

If there is another game starting from scratch PLEASE (pretty please!? - yea i used interesting move) start it off with 1.e4 g6 2.Nf3 Bg7 3.d4 c5 4.Nc3 Qa5 5.Be2!? cause i want to see what the Sniper Author does, since he hasn't seen or replied to my post since he is commenting again on chesspub and i'd really like to see what he does!

Cheers!

Hello to my mind the discussions in this thread should revolve around chess variations so what about e4 g6 d4 Bg7 Nf3 c5 dc5 Qa5 c3 Qc5 Na3 b6 Nb5 Nf6 b4 I think this is really strong and a serious threat for the sniper


There are several serious threats to the Sniper. I bought the book and was prepared to try it with an open mind. The author's posts here make that impossible as he is not open to any reasonable debate about his opening.

Mr Pymm

That is the best comment I have seen on this thread.

A Pirc Player may say your N-f3 is wrong - as may a Caro Player a Sniper Player may well take you on.

My Lawyer will look over the agreement (me) when Harvey reaches my ethical requirement level connected to my earlier postings.

This is my first and foremost requirement and no amount of money nor booksales will change that.

A Full and Frank personal apology to me and the viewers for acting in a manner that is not in the spirit of chess.

When this shift in Harveys thinking has been implemented my Lawyer (me) will organise the agreed conditions which will en-thrall the Chess Public and affirm The Sniper as;

the best way, that Black can play, on a given day, concluding in May, and by the way, its here to stay, so let us pray, Yay or Nay, The Sniper Way.

Harvey - I will be listening...............

It would be nice if Charlie agreed to play my Be3 line afterwards.

If both players can come to an agreement to play, say, a 2/3 game match, then I might agree to sponsoring it. Smiley


Sounds interesting Smiley
