GIVING THANKS WHERE THANKS ARE DUE

A long time a.go, I observed on this blog that my score on the game of Free Cell was pretty good but that I could not get it higher.  David Palmeter reported that he had a very very high score but used the undo facility, which I had shunned. Encouraged by him, I began to use that facility and since then have not lost a game. Yesterday, my all-time score went up to 98.4%, for roughly 15,000 games total. I have always been grateful to him for this encouragement and I thought I would just pass it along now. Thank you, David.

To be fair, as a player, if you use Undo, and spend 47 minutes on a game, you can "win" almost all of them.

Robert Paul Wolff said...

But of course, that is the whole point, why do you put "win" in quotes?By the way, I believe there is one game that it is impossible to win although I have no idea which one it is.

That's the way to do it. Determination! Never give up!

I've been playing chess since I was a teenager. I have been playing chess online for over 20 years now. Unfortunately, my Elo rating has been falling steadily in recent years. After the games I always ask ChessBase and it mercilessly shows me that I start to lose after the fifth move. If I win, ChessBase shows me that I'm only winning because my opponent is making bad moves. I think that since supercomputers have been around, mankind should really think about redefining the term "winning" so as not to leave the field of honor to these miserable digital monsters.

I put win in "" because I just think fair play should involve a time limit. Depends on the game, the purpose, and the prize.

I almost gave up on crypto at some point not until saw a recommendation on Elon musk successfully success story and I got a proficient trader/broker Mr Bernie Doran , he gave me all the information required to succeed in trading. I made more profit than I could ever imagine. I'm not here to converse much but to share my testimony; I have made total returns of 3.6BTC from an investment of just 0.6BTC. Thanks to Mr Bernie I'm really grateful,I have been able to make a great returns trading with his signals and strategies .I urge anyone interested in
