Political Rating Floors by Sam Sloan
I just happened to look up Tom Dorsch and noticed that he has a rating floor of 2200, although his rating has never been higher than 2260. http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrDtlMain.php?10496730 About half of the time, he has been bouncing off of the floor. Without the floor, his rating might have dropperd as low as 2100. An inordinate number of Chess Politicians have floors much higher than her...

Take off stalkers and their supporters, return on chess by Goran Tomic
I'm so sad when I see human disaster. Nevertheless if it's tragedy of the stalker (like Mr. Brennen) who was cached using false name and writing false biography, or some human people. When tragedy happened for two people (nevertheless if they are thieves, like Mr. Brennen and Mr. Kingston, my sadness is larger). They are forever lost like writer on this newsgroup. Because all of us will regard...

British championships - Isle of Man by Terry
Just been looking at the website and was very surprised to see the number of people playing. The overall strength is low. It looks as though it was a disasterous decision to play in this locations. Numbers at this event usually exceed 1000. Regards

Newbie: Advice wanted by [email protected]
I use to play with beginners. Recently I played advanced players who are part of a league. I myself noticed and one of the advanced players pointed out that I am all attack and no defense. I concur. It seemed that I can attack okay, but, the experienced players can knock the wind out of my attack. To improve, I need to know. a.) How to attack in force so my attacks are well supported. Not

How Many Games Should I Study? by Roy Harper
I have read more than one titled player recommend studying LOTS of master games to improve. I think most recently I read something attributed to Silman that said once a player gets to a certain level, say 1800-2000, then one of the best things for him to do is to play over hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of games between strong players in order to build up your understanding of standard ideas...

Tar and feather for Mr. Brennen and Mr Kingston by The Historian
Goran Tomic wrote: Golden times gone forever! There were thieves, but there were justice, too. In past time the justice was very cruel, but it could satisfy damaged side. 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...
