Some of you may have forgotten how tournaments work. In regular season games... several teams COULD go undefeated. In Tournament and Playoff games... only 1 team can do that. If an NFL team won 92 out of 100 playoff games they would be considered godlike.

    About the other comment... that's what SBR is!! SBR is mostly people talking about what others have done or are going to do. Let's assume that my life is so boring that I need to find things others have done so I have something to talk about like you said... that means that your life is so boring that you need to point out how boring you think my life is.

    I appreciate greatness. I don't care what you're great in. You can be great at tiddly winks for all I care. But if you are so far ahead of everyone else in what you do that you can acquire the best Record EVER... this is fascinating to me. This is what I'm looking for. Not many people like this have existed. There's been almost no one that has ever been so dominate in their field that they win over 90% in Tournament/Playoff games. Find me someone like this and I just might give you 100 points. I know most people look at this thread and think... "Who cares? What's the point?" and that's fine... I think I have a different appreciation for greatness than some of you.

    instead of offering a bs contest for 100 here

    THANKS
    I also like to start threads like this to see how many hypocrites I can attract. Tell me if I have any of this wrong.... You're not happy with the way that I'm spending MY points. YOU want to spend MY points differently. Is this correct so far? You should really get into politics. You're platform could be... "I promise to spend YOUR money the way I want to". If you don't like it when politicians pretend to know how to spend YOUR money better than you do... than you are a hypocrite because that's exactly what you are doing in this thread. You don't see it because you're the one doing it. But when people do it to you you don't like it. This is what is known as a hypocrite. Look it up if you don't what it means. I know you probably consider yourself to be some kind of hero who knows how to spend MY points better than I do. ALL politicians that have this type of thinking consider themselves to be hero's. They're not. They're hypocrites just like you. If you don't think you're a hypocrite... ask yourself this question... "If other people tried to tell you how to spend YOUR points what would think of them?" Whatever you think of them... that's what you are. This is simple math. If you can't figure this out you have no hope.

    Congrats to ArunSh! I was not familiar with Marion Tinsley until this thread. He was quite the master. Quite possibly the best anyone has ever been at anything. That's impressive!

    For anyone else interested in earning Points, I started a thread several years ago giving away 100 Points to the first 5 people to beat me at Reversi 6x6. The thread can be found here https://www.sportsbookreview.com/for...points-p7.html 5 people beat me and Points were awarded. Now, I am giving away 500 Points to the first person that can beat me at a game called Hexversi. Hexversi is a very simple game that can literally be learned in less than a minute. I will also give away 100 Points to the first 2 people that can achieve at least Half of my score in a COMPLETED game of Hexversi. If anyone is interested let me know in this thread. I'll take on all comers and computer programs as well.

    How in the hell do you figure that you won? If you had any balls at all you would play me in a game of Hexversi. If you win... you get 500 points... and you can spend them in any foolish way that you want. If you lose... you lose nothing! You talk a lot of trash but I don't see you doing anything to back it up.

    I see that you still don't understand how hypocritical you are. Read post #40 over and over again. Maybe someday you'll get it.

    this thread was all about you saying you are the best ever at hexversi, I get it

    you have made these posts before you know??



    all I was saying is: you've asked some very important questions, 2 that I know of

    you sent them 10 points for knowing the answer

    now you send someone 100 for knowing a google answer????



    you said tourneys and playoffs only

    how many checkers tournies do you think there are per year??

    and you cant go over a specific timespan, its the life of the team or contest..otherwise the minimum 100 Olympic softball won

    Feel free to post those important questions in here. What I asked was questions that were simple to anyone who had a slightly better understanding of Excel than I do. I gave them 10 points as you said. Here is my reasoning, the people who answered those questions probably spent less than a minute to give the answer because they already knew the formula! To you, that might be worth 100 points... and maybe it is. To me... the question in this thread is FAR more challenging. Whatever Google search you do will likely not find you the best answer. If it did... everyone would have given the same answer... they did not.

    You're only partially right about the Hexversi comment. I didn't start the thread to point out that I'm the best ever at Hexversi. I didn't even mention Hexversi until I already gave away the points. I started this thread because I wanted to see how I stacked up against others who were dominant in their game/sport.

    Also, I didn't go over a specific timespan... what are you talking about?

    How you chose the name Rudy is beyond me. The only similarity I can see is a reading disability. The real Rudy would be completely embarrassed by your behavior.

    If you offer me 500 points if I beat you at a game you created and I lose nothing if I lose... I will play you... this is a promise. In fact, you name the game... it can be anything you want... if you're offering me 500 points with nothing to lose... I will play it!

    Thanks John! As a lifelong chess player, obviously this fact was something that was interesting to me - also him being the last human to beat a top computer which is pretty much 100% impossible in chess or checkers (obviously checkers is solved while chess the engines are just too strong). But yeah to be that dominant, pretty amazing - never seen anything like that in chess or any other game.

    I don't spend a lot of time on SBR. Maybe the only times you see me on SBR is when I am asking questions about things that I don't know or understand. This is why you see me the way that you do. Fair enough. I know I don't give away as many points as some of the other posters... maybe even yourself.. I don't know... like I said I am not on SBR much. But the fact is... I do give away points on occasion. That's more than a lot posters ever do. The problem you seem to have with me is that I am not giving away MY points the way you think I should. If you spend ANY amount of time worrying about how OTHER PEOPLE are spending THEIR points or money you're going to make yourself miserable because this is not a solution. It doesn't work. It never will. The only thing you can do is to lead by example. If I'm not spending MY points the way you see fit then the only thing you can do is to spend YOUR points in a way that you think I should be doing.
