Engine puzzle position by Martin Brown[_2_]
I have stumbled upon a position where quite a few engines - I thought at first it was just x64 types but Fritz 10 also sees the same phantom "Good move" which evaluates as a draw where none exists. The position is hopelessly lost but that isn't the point. Something is wrong. I found it analysing a lost game where there was a clear and bizarre discontinuity in the evaluation function that...

avoiding trading when down in points by Jules W.
Say I'm down by 2 to 5 points. The general consensus seems to be that it is bad for me to trade in this situation. Should I run all around the board avoiding trades looking for the perfect opening, or is there more to this. Perhaps someone can suggest a book to study about this.

why do chess stars stop playing chess? by Zero
I don't understand why some players who become a the "poster kids" of chess suddenly stop playing altogether. Like Tal Shaked, David Arnett, Anna kahn, Josh Waitzkin, Max Dlugy, Joel Lautier, Ferdinand Hellers, among some names. just curious why people spend so much time to get good and then decide to quit.
