5 minutes on the clock for Nunn and 10 minutes for the master.
He won with 88-12.
Afterwards the master was disappointed:
"I thought that I would see lots of advanced strategic concepts in these games but actually all I have learnt is LPDO."
"LPDO?" Nunn asked.
"Loose Pieces Drop Off"
Most of the games where decided by relatively simple tactics involving undefended pieces.
So the tactical skills of a grandmaster compares to the master's as 88:12
According MDLM the difference between a class D-player and an expert lies in tactics.
So what is the difference between an expert and a master?
According to Nunn it is the ability to play rookendings well.
So what do you have to do if you want to become an expert, master, grandmaster?
I did it!
I completed the 560 problems of step 4 all a tempo!
I can hardly see tru my watery eyes and I'm grunting all the time.
But I did it.
I'm totally exhausted. Especially the last 100 where really difficult.
All 1100 problems a tempo in 24 days.
Ok, they were not too difficult. And I did them twice in the past. But they took me a lot of time in the first circle.
I think playing them a tempo is good enough. No need for circle 6 and 7.
In a few weeks (months?) I will repeat them to consolidate.
I'll have a break before I continue with step 5.
Aaaah, where is the beer?
