Hanging horse thieves, or for some less robberies mill in tar and feather. And, what could expect our modern thieves and cheaters and Vandals? We could read:...

1.d4 leading to Ruy Lopez by Alan OBrien
Does anyone have the score of a game - it is in an Edward Winter book that I can't find in my house - that opens 1.d4 but transposes into a Spanish? One of the players may have been Nimzowitsch, and I think the bok was Kings, Commoners and Knaves. -- Work like the ponies in coalmines. Dance like the teardrop explodes. Love like you're Frank in Blue Velvet. Sing as though your little throat would...

My Great Chess Predecessors, Part IV - Fischer by ian burton
Has Edward Winter reviewed this volume by Kasparov. I only managed to see it for the first time this past week, and Kasparov's use of USA is driving me to despair. There is no USA Open Championship; there is no USA Invitational Championship; there is no USA Junior Championship. All mentions of USA here should simply be US. Does Kasparov think he is improving on American usage by his tone-deaf...

Open Chess Tournament Los Angeles by [email protected]

This coming first Sunday of the month, Aug. 7th, will be the occasion of a free, unrated, three-round chess tournament. Cash prizes will *NOT* be awarded, but the names of the winners...

Message for the OWNER! A woman is approaching a very small Bistro. She calls the barkeeper and, when he is standing in front of her, she asks him in a very seductive way to come nearer. Then she bends over the desk and starts to caress his beard. "Are you the boss of this Bistro?" she asks and touches tenderly his cheek. "Ehhh. No. Not at all!" the barkeeper replies. "Would you please call him...

Sam's Games from the World Open by Sam Sloan
I played poorly in the World Open in games 4 and 5. I do not know what went wrong with me, especially in Game 4. Perhaps these games can be used to lure another opponent into a one thousand dollar grudge match like the one I won the previous weekend in Chicago. The last game, which I won, was fairly interesting against a promising Junior. My score of 6-3 earned me a prize of $37.50, but was...
