torre_tinorete 6 ( +1 | -1 )
Iwill give up... my chess pieces if I could play like the great Tal!
zdrak 6 ( +1 | -1 )
I would give up my g-pawn to play like Grob...
raimon 26 ( +1 | -1 )
My possessions mean a lot to me, so I would stubbornly hang on to them.
By the way, your brother seems to have lost all sense of reason.
Maybe I could part with one of my chess sets (the one that the dog chewed) but in return I would have to be given my own identity of greatness!
tambori 16 ( +1 | -1 )
or EVEN BETTER... Now that i think about it better...i would really give anything to see for once Lasker to play AS I DO...the world would lough till doomsday...lol...

bluebabygirl If you all got your wish and held a tournament your uncle Terry would win easily! several points ahead of the rest of the clan.
tulkos 4 ( +1 | -1 )
I will give up a nights sleep--- to play as well as morphy. deal? ;-))))
lightning_rider 41 ( +1 | -1 )
I would give up my dream of becoming a Physicist if I only could mange to attack like Tal!
I would give up my love to programming and computers if I only could mange to play the openning like Fischer!
And I would definitly give up my g/f (s) to play a middle game like Kasparov!

I would give up nothing for Petrossian's end game cuz IF i could do the above three, the game will be over before it reaches the end game!
ketchuplover 4 ( +1 | -1 )
I would give up my fear of sex to play like all the great players.
raimon 5 ( +1 | -1 )
Amazing the level of sacrifice you people will endure!
indiana-jay 52 ( +1 | -1 )

You're so cute, bluebabygirl! :)

To make your own answer more meaningful (in term of chess, and ONLY about chess) I think you could start to challenge Cyrano. He is such a nice gentleman who will spare his time to play with you. :)

I will give my time and energy to play with the top 10 players here at GK. That's the best I could give away....
bluebabygirl 101 ( +1 | -1 )
thanks to all wow !!!! all you guys are simply great and with such great answers too!!! I WOULD INDEED ENJOY GETTING CRUSHED BY CYRANO !! SOUNDS CRAZY THAT STATEMENT BUT YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT I MEAN !! i think lightning - rider said he would give up the most !! but if it was in my power to grant that wish , i would take tulkos' s deal he grant me the good nights sleep i grant him morphy's great ablity, if only because I've lost so much sleep this week staying up so I could learn from all you great guys !!!! also I had the great honor of becoming friends with so many , that I'M simply amazed that so many would want a little baby girl like me as their friend neverthelesss I wisely accepted their kind offer . WHY, you ask , because my daddy didn't raise no fool !!!!!Where else could I ever find such great friends ??? yours with much gratitude the bluebabygirl

bluebabygirl Don't be fooled by the baby talk and the photo guys. bluebabygirl is in reality a 73-year-old grey bearded man, pretending to be cute and cuddly...
bluebabygirl 26 ( +1 | -1 )
i am cute and cuddly but i hope i never get a beard!!!!!!!!!! but if you think im as wise as my grandfather(he is only 69)thanks for the compliments !!! I do not talk like a baby , I resent that !! thanks for saying my picture is cute , you are very smart!!!!!Mr. jean-marc!!!! yours bluebabygirl
north 26 ( +1 | -1 )
Jean-Marc Jean-Marc: Yes, that's had me wondering too, although I would have said that our bearded chap weighed around 350.
Ah, the internet: Thus are all made equal.

Seriously, I'd give up my hopes of ever getting an M5 if I could play like Lasker... :)
macheide 20 ( +1 | -1 )
jean-marc Dear friend,

If that was a joke, it was a very bad one. You are talking of a very nice young lady, and she's my friend.

If you try to bother my friend, I hope you to have an entire platoon behind you to support you.

macheide.
raimon 14 ( +1 | -1 )
Good on you macheide jean-marc be a good lad and apologise - the fun she was having gave a bit of light relief to the cynicism that seems to infiltrate our daily lives.
bluebabygirl 17 ( +1 | -1 )
to jean-marc thanks , i really enjoyed our conversation . but my friends took serious offense to your little joke . but all is well now . you are a fine gentleman I think . yours bluebabygirl
aggropolis 26 ( +1 | -1 )
haha "If you try to bother my friend, I hope you to have an entire platoon behind you to support you. "

I have a sharp friend that likes to explore the innercycle of men and I don't hesitate to use it at pornmustaches from the 60's. Macheide, one more joke except yourself buffalo bill. Please?
aggropolis 10 ( +1 | -1 )
also I would sacrifice my urge for cigarettes.

Everyone knows that REAL chessplayers smoke.
aggropolis 3 ( +1 | -1 )
too tired to play like Kasparov.
jean-marc 23 ( +1 | -1 )
Touchy... OK guys, don't be so touchy. bluebabygirl is everyone's favourite, mine included. What's wrong with me offering a bit of "light relief" ? A thousand apologies that I offended. She's not really 73 y-o and certainly doesn't have facial hair !
bluebabygirl 53 ( +1 | -1 )
to all thank you macheide and also jean-marc , raimon and all my friends . to aggropolis please be kind ok will you .It is far better to be a gentle SOUL!!!!Than to look ,act and smell as a mean ole TROLL !!!! I think you are probably a very nice guy too !!! all chess players do not smoke , i do not and im a chess player ,also I WILL BE GOOD SOMEDAY TOO!!!!! And you really should quit smoking its very bad for you . it cuts about average of 10 years off your LIFE!! just think thats 10 years more chess that you could play . bye bluebabygirl
aggropolis 20 ( +1 | -1 )
bluebabygirl Gentlesouls never win anything,
while the bad guys get many things,
we don't have to deal with hypocrazy and all that 'do too',
we just be ourselves and leave the drama to you...

I'll leave the acting to the people who needs it.
bluebabygirl 47 ( +1 | -1 )
re- to aggropolis I SEE I MISJUDGE YOU VERY BADLY . YOU WILL NEVER EVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY TRYING TO BE YOUR FRIEND !! YOU APPARENTLY TRY YOUR BEST NOT TO MAKE FRIENDS !!!!! you say gentle souls never win anything while bad guys get many things . I agree they get many things -prison time , sorry relationships and often just as sorry family too .I only wanted to be nice to you . you however do not know how to be nice to people . I feel very sorry for you !! BBG

Bluebabygirl, may be aggropolis is just pretending to be a bad guy here. Who knows? Isn't it possible to experiment to use different kind of personality in the internet? Not so many people have the gut or the capability to confrontate with other people when it is required to do so in the real life!

If aggropolis is "real", personally I think it is nice to see people saying anything they have in their mind (Nothing can change what we have in there, correct?). And it is interesting to know how people think...
bluebabygirl 25 ( +1 | -1 )
RE - TO INDI HE HAD NO REASON TO BE RUDE . i ALSO LOOK UP HIS PROFILE , SO READ IT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK !!!! HE COULD DO WITH A FEW LESSONS ON HOW TO BE NICE . MY OLDER BROTHER SAYS IF ONLY HE WERE HERE IN PERSON HE WOULD GIVE HIM AN ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT !! YOURS BLUEBABYGIRL
lightning_rider 80 ( +1 | -1 )
WOULD YOU ALL JUST SHUT UP AND TALK ABOUT THE TOPIC OF THIS THREAD! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? IT'S NOT A ZOO OR SOMETHING!

(clearing my throat................mhmhmh)

sorry about that. I think that was a bit too rough! But I'm sick of reading all these crap stuff in this thread. we are talking about "WHAT would you give to play as great as WHICH great player?????" not how old is our babe bluebabygirl or whether she is actually she or a he! I dont give a damn about it but I do like the person whom I listen to here and there under the name of bluebabygirl ! If you all had a bit of whisdom and brain you wouldn't have cared about who is the speaker but had cared about what they say!

So, grow up you all!

Lightning

thankyou, lightningrider, I hope that cleared the air---
aggropolis 88 ( +1 | -1 )
BBG 1. I'm sure your brother wouldn't appreciate studying the pavement, so he'd better not try to teach me anything. Also to threaten with your older brother, well don't make me humiliate him in "public".
2. I think macheides twisted attack on jean-marc was enough to laugh at. I think it is enough that drooling 50 year olds can get away with being silly when they see, oh well you get it.
3. That you even judge me over the internet says enough, I got a good laugh out of my childish post. Do you think I worship satan as well?

Feel the vibe, do you feel that I am aggressive or full of hatred :)? I'm not a bad guy, I just put some people in their places when they're riding on high horses.

My profile is there for the psychological warfare, it was worse before when I wrote that I bullied nerds in school. It was too much of the good though.
aggropolis 6 ( +1 | -1 )
Oh I'm sorry??? I have now changed my profile!!! so I hope we can be friends now!!! Ohweeeeeee!!!
aggropolis 16 ( +1 | -1 )
Ohhhhh look at me, I'm more suspicous than neo2003 past game history! Ohweeeee!!
voigtkampf 24 ( +1 | -1 )
I would give up... ...this awkward comments and get back to the subject... :) peace, everyone...be kind and friendly to eachother...you won't regret it...
I would give up my chessset to be as cute as bluebabygirl! :) no...seriously...I have to think about what to give up...so, till then!
macheide 47 ( +1 | -1 )
aggropolis Lady,

Thanks for looking at my moustaches. Only a correction: They are not from the 60's. I'm a proud '59 model.

Besides, Buffalo Bill like?, Mmmm, I don't think so, I recommend you to look in the Matthew Brady's original photos of him. Anyway, thanks, I like the style of Buffalo Bill's moustaches.

Best wishes,

macheide

Post data: Please, don't be so tired to play like Kasparov. I wish to see more people playing like Kasparov in this site.
raimon 10 ( +1 | -1 )
nice shade of lipstick aggropolis.
And you're right about that past game history!
Blatant!
macheide 18 ( +1 | -1 )
aggropolis Dear lady,

In order to not bother you with my moustache, I've changed provisionaly my profile.

Hopefuly my new image are not as offensive to your eyes as the last one.

Yours truly,

macheide
north 14 ( +1 | -1 )
This is the reason that the social chat forum went down.
So, keep it on the subject of chess.

BBG and the others above are correct: Play nice or don't play at all.
macheide 7 ( +1 | -1 )
north My friend,

You are right. Let's continue playing chess.

Regards,

macheide.
raimon 12 ( +1 | -1 )
Agreed enough tomfoolery.
back to chess:
I would give up 307 rating points if I could play like aggropolis.
aggropolis 42 ( +1 | -1 )
Macheide: It is nice to see that our Don Quijote can smile at himself, although after the false pretences it is at others. He should build some though, because his attempts are far too lame even to make Bush smile.

North: And this is the reason the social forum must return. BBG are not correct, I don't have to play nice. I do not want to act for the likes of you, that is pointless.

Raimon: I would cut off both my hands not to be like you.
schachfruend 7 ( +1 | -1 )
I Would Give up my hubby and still only play like I do, any takers...?
bluebabygirl 15 ( +1 | -1 )
to schachfruend nice one !!! but do not just give him away charge at least a quarter!!I would giveup my ex-boyfriend to play like TAL the magnificent!!!! yours bluebabygirl
schachfruend 35 ( +1 | -1 )
Okay Free shipping, clearance sale!! As for whom I would play 'like,' after you accept my free offer, I would say now, Cyrano for his pure and deep understanding for positional reasoning. In order to play exciting chess you need to realize where you are and he has a unique knowledge!!
raimon 16 ( +1 | -1 )
I've got to hand it to you bluebabygirl.
This thread has had everything from streetbrawls to marriage breakups - much better than watching telly.
Keep them coming!
lordnguyenvo 11 ( +1 | -1 )
i will give up my current chess ability if i can play as good as the best chess player(whoever that might be) :).
bluebabygirl 35 ( +1 | -1 )
to schachfruend to play like TAL or CYRANO I would give away my ex and your hubby too!! and I dont even know your hubby!!!!!! but since im now playing CYRANO a game I will get my lessons the hard way . I expect he will make short work of me . but I will learn from his excellent play !!!!!he is really a very nice guy too !!!!!!!! yours bluebabygirl
voigtkampf 16 ( +1 | -1 )
Giving up... ..my hangover in order to be able to differentiate knight from bishop again...although some claim I couldn't do that even in my soberst moments...:)
bluebabygirl 11 ( +1 | -1 )
to voigtkampf just a thought but try giving up your drinking , then your chess may improve !!! yours bluebabygirl
baseline 5 ( +1 | -1 )
I gotta be me I'm not giving up anything, good or bad, otherwise I wouldn't be me.
voigtkampf 23 ( +1 | -1 )
to bluebabygirl Hehe...That was a joke...Haven't been drinking since New Years celebration! I'm intoxicated by my own superego, why would I want to drink anyway!
little x bluebabygirl!
PS
Now, before you tell me I'm supposed to reduce my ego, that was a joke too!
