Ray Keene - on the balance, more positive for organized chess than negative? by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
Discuss. Here's some background: Ray Keene is one of the favorite scratching posts of the online chess community. Probably the height of Keene-bashing was reached when the threw out John Henderson from the Brain Games pressroom in 2000 (for those of you who remember that tourney). While painting himself as a Hunter Thompson-esque hero of the moment, it's not hard to read between the lines that...

Dr. Fart's (Steven B. Dowd) incompetent review of Maurice Ashley:What Grandmasters Don't See, Vol 3 by raylopez99
http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=7617 Chessbase above is running a review of a video by Maurice Ashley: What Grandmasters Don't See, Vol 3 that is reviewed by this group's member SBD (aka Dr. Fart, as that acronym stands for Silent But Deadly, a fart category). While I like Ashley in general, as he makes chess seem cool, this particular video, as can be sampled from the link...

Short-term memory problems during a game by MikeMurray
Here's a problem that's always plagued me, one of which I've experienced acutely in the last couple events, turning a won game into a loss, and turning an easy win into a scramble won mostly because of my opponent's time trouble. You ponder a position and you reject some upcoming sequence, thinking, "Oh, I can't do THAT because he'll play xxx" or you plan to refute an opponent's possible reply...

Sam Sloan and TMB are the only posters who actually play OTB games... by The Masked Bishop[_2_]
....unless any of you want to argue otherwise. I checked the USCF site...Sam is active and ongoing. So am I, although you'll have to take my word for it, since the USCF wouldn't let me register under TMB (although they ran a letter of mine with that moniker once). As for the rest of you...for those who post their real names, there doesn't seem to be ANY chess activity. Correct me if I'm...

Dr. Fart vs. Ray: who is better at explaining the endgame? Ray. by raylopez99
Our own "Dr. Fart" aka SBD has a ChessCafe review of an endgame book by GM Danny King featured at the Chessbase.com site. (Nobody reads ChessCafe so I reference Chessbase, where I saw his review). Dr. Fart has the gall to critique a grandmaster--I guess he learned from TK who has the gall to critique GM Rowson. Patzer correcting a master-- there's a concept. In any event, you can learn more...

Programs for tracking chess game listings in tutorial books by --
I've been using an actual chess board to study games listed in chess tutorial books. The main hassle is in tracking alternative move sequences and then getting back to the real moves. And of course starting over from scratch the next time that game is studied. I'd like to find a program that will facilitate this. Preferably allow manually playing/entering the listed game, and allowing recovery...

Overcoming opening monotony by piece swap by M Winther
During training games, instead of wearing out your openings, monotonously playing the same system over and over, you should try "Relocation variants". Simply swap a piece or two before making the first move. This means a thorough kill of all opening theory, but strategically it's the same game. It's like breathing fresh air again. Please read this article. There are also Zillions programs to...

Which college did Fischer attend? by Alex
What college did Bobby Fischer go to? He was a world chess champion so he must be a smart person and I want to be a smart person so I think that I should go to his college and I can be smart as him.
