Round 7, board 2 next: Vela vs. Jauregui, next Monday Sept, 19th

   The stage is ready.
   The next battle is very important for all three contenders to the 2011 crown between the Spanish Torture musketeers.
   In the last 2 rounds (6 games) we all have the last chance to get as many points as possible for the last time in the year.
   Last Monday "El Galactico" Jauregui had his last white vs. "El Mambi" Ramirez. He will have to wait until he plays the next Round Robin Tournament to have that opportunity again. The same fact applies to all of us, and up next is my last white game vs. Jauregui, so I have to squeeze every drop of extraterrestrial juice that I can possibly get from him...
   I am well aware that a draw is all I need to continue on top, and that would be a good (safe) result for me, however, it's not in my blood nor in my will to come out to the chess arena and play it safe. Rather, just the opposite.
   I want to WIN!! I want to risk and squeeze, and sweat and push, and cry and bleed, and win at all costs!!
  I WANT VICTORY IN EVERY GAME!!! That's my philosophy, and I'm not changing out that now...
    This time I get to play with the advantage of having the leadership for the first time in the whole Match, and if there's nothing more than a draw at hand after trying out every tiny possibility, then, and only then, I wouldn't have to risk losing, and therefore a draw might be OK with me....
  But first... 
Well, first I have to try everything in my power to crush the black position, that being tactically or strategically.
  With that approach i would risk losing, but if I lose this game (and I can lose, of course!) I still have very good chances of coming back in the next three remaining battles.
   If it's a draw, a very hard-fought-out draw, then I will continue as the leader, even if only by the minimum difference, just one half a point over Ramirez. But I would have to play him with Black in the following game, so why not take advantage of my white pieces now, and try to demolish one of my opponents to go to the game against Ramirez with a possible whole extra point advantage?
Yeah...why not??
   They say in Mexico that "The world belongs to brave men..."
With that in mind:  I will be careful, but not to the point of taking absolutely no risks. I will be brave, but not to the point of sacrificing on speculative tactics... 
   In sum, I will continue playing as I did when I still was in the basement.
That attitude helped me to get out of it, and I believe the same mindset will take me to first place at the end of 2011 this Match. 
    I also have a chance to win vs. Jauregui our fourth encounter in a row...  A chance that I'll probably never have again in the future... Maybe never again!
   So why not come out fighting with a super sharp machete, instead of a white silky handkerchief, begging for a truce??

   My opponents, any of them, want a truce??
Well, first of all... 
I am here to fight!!!
I am here to claim victory!!
I am here to kill or be killed!!
You guys want peace??
Come and get it!
Come and earn it first!!
I rather resign the game on move one, before handing out even one single half a point on a platter!!
I will be fighting with everything I've got. I know Jauregui will do so too. He has no choice. If he loses this one, he's practically out of contention for first place, and that makes me want to win even harder than anything else, but we'll see....'cause the future is unpredictable and I'm not playing against a 6 year old kid. I am playing versus El Galactico and I am sure that he will be ready for a tough battle.
This is a war on 64 squares, but war, nonetheless...
  
I wish that you will play a great game Juan Pablo. I really do. I think you will.
So, just to finish this post I also want to ask you the same question I asked Jose the last time we played:
Are you ready to rumble my friend??? 
'Cause I AM MORE THAN READY!!!
   LETS HAVE ANOTHER GREAT FIGHT !!!!!!

To the victory, always!!!

I believe this time Juan Pablo will win the encounter between Vela vs Jauregui. Why? Is 100% impossible Vela will have the victory for the 4th time in a row. No way, "El Galactico" will win!!

Jose, allow me to re post one of your comments (prophesies?), the one you gave in our last game between JP and I:

"I think the Galactico will win this encounter, Vela is not completely recovered from the last game against me, I killed him slowly, Vela I think you are on the verge of stay in the basement for ever!!"

Sooooo, what happened?? I won, right?

I think that what you are writing are nothing more than wishes. You wish that I don't win, and I understand that, but I CAN win. I don't know if I will, but...
Yes, I can!
Yes, I can!
Yes I can!

Lets fight, galactico!!! To the death!!!!!!!!

Jose Ramirez said...

Paco I know you can, but that will be in another time, now is impossible, you are not a GM, so that's mean, you can't Win this one, is against all the laws. That I know, your wish is to win again, but the truth you will lose, than I will kill you one more time and I will be the winner!!!

Paco Vela. said...

All I hear is "I wish, I wish I wish..."

All 3 results are possible. If I lose JP will deserve it completely, cause I'll make him work hard for it. If it's a draw, it will be because there's nothing else in the position to play for...
And if I win...well, then I will come back to see what you think about my "mission impossible"

Whatever the result, I can only guarantee you a super hard, super difficult, long fight, and to the limit!!!

Lets fight!!!

Jose Ramirez said...

I think Vela will commit a big blunder in the game Vela vs Jauregui, so the final score will be 0-1. That is my prediction!

Paco Vela. said...

And I think you will have to swallow your words with a nice Rum, and your prediction, just like the others before this one, will end up in excuses....
How about that, my friend??
Hahahaha!!!

Jose Ramirez said...

Paco no! This time I'm 100% sure, I had the information from out side of the earth! You will see.

Paco Vela. said...

Well, unless Black cheats using Fritz, I don't see how you can be so sure of me losing...
It's all in your head Jose, but that's OK. Like you said, we will see...
If I actually lose I have no idea how I'm going to be able to shut your mouth...Hahaha, but if i win, well... Start thinking about your excuses right now...
I have to go, those mates in 16 are getting more difficult every time...BYE!

Paco Vela. said...

Jose's Prediction:
Vela will lose. 100% sure!! (really?)

Yeah, right....

And the moon? Is it made of cheese??

Hahahaha!!!

Ok. It's time for all the excuses to come out....let's hear them...

Paco Vela. said...

Joseeeeeee: Wake up!!
Where are your excuses???
What happened???
Come on!! Let me hear your excuses!!! Please!!!

Paco Vela. said...

I think I can hear the grasshoppers singing...
