Goichberg and Gadhafi by samsloan
Trying to get Goichberg out of the USCF is like trying to get Gadhafi out of Libya. Neither of them will ever be willing to leave voluntarily and their troops are too strong for them to be forced out. Sam Sloan

Good days for GetClub. [Twice improved] by Sanny[_3_]
GetClub Chess was improved and now it plays twice stronger. Secondly getclub now takes half the time than it used to take earlier. Baby Level: 8-10 sec / move will beat 90% of the players here. Beginner Level: 20-30 sec/ move will beat 99% of the players here. I dont think any one here, can beat the Easy Level: 1-2 min/move.

Response to Allegations of Corruption in FIDE by samsloan
Nigel Freeman of Bermuda, who is the Treasurer of FIDE, points out that FIDE is one of the most open organizations in the world. For example, every year for the past twenty or so years, FIDE has appointed one American to the FIDE Verification Commission which overlooks FIDE Finances. Right now it is Ruth Haring, before her it was Beatriz Marinello and before her it was Don Schultz. Similarly...

Grob's Angriff is being reprinted by samsloan
Grob's Angriff This book is the seminal work on the chess opening now known as Grob's Attack. This chess opening starts with 1. g2-g4 or, in Descriptive Notation, 1. P-KN4. Although the book is in German, it is written in chess notation and thus it is not necessary to know German to read this book.

Which player won most games? by nightlife18
I have no doubt that what I am saying will not be news to most people, but I thought that the following might be of interest. If you take a total number of games by a known player, and divide it by their wins only, you will come out with a number, probably not a whole number. The higher that number is, the fewer number of wins they have had as a total percentage of overall games played. The...

Douglas Forsythe Update by BLafferty[_3_]
The details are a bit thin, but this is what I've learned. Forsythe, when faced with Federal charges relating to threats made to kill and maim children at scholastic tournament kids in Massachusetts, wound up in an emergency room where he attempted to set himself on fire. He then spent some time in a mental institution (probably under observation/evaluation followed by 23 dayes in jail in...

Olympiad Hotel in Khanty-Mansiysk is Closing Right Now by samsloan
"Potemkin village" has come to mean, especially during Soviet times, any hollow or false construct, meant to create the illusion that the common people were living well. Potemkin villages were constructed along the sides of railroad lines, so that passing travelers could not see the true living conditions of the people. The Olympiad Hotel in Khanty-Mansiysk is not a Potemkin village. It is or...
