Sam Sloan Almost No-Show at World Open by Sam Sloan

As to Sam, I worry about his health. He seems to have lost weight. Skin and bones. And sores. On his face. The mind? A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Will the votes be counted tomorrow? by Sam Sloan
I have been told that the votes in the election for USCF Executive Board will be counted tomorrow, July 16, in New Windsor. However, I find no announcement of this on the USCF website: http://www.uschess.org/org/govern/ Is it true that the votes will be counted tomorrow? When will it start? How long will it last? I will try to attend. Sam Sloan

Sick of players who INSIST on playing *BOOK* openings by Scott
I have found a lot of players (at least online) - only play book openings from memory - and when things deviate drastically from what they are used to (especially in a 5-min game) - they can be easily defeated. As a test I have gone on to various chess playing sites and opened my game with 1. e4 * 2. ke2 * 3. ke3 * etc. and won the games 90% of the time. After my silly moves they tend to...

Iljumzhinov - Days Appear Numbered by Gunny Bunny
http://www.chessnetwork.com/ncn/b/g290603.htm Sun-Herald, June 29 Ian Rogers When Kirsan Iljumzhinov won the Kalmyk election in October last year despite Kremlin opposition, it seemed as if the World Chess Federation (FIDE) President would succeed in his professed ambition to remain life President of the Russian republic of Kalmykia.

Yet another GM inquiry... by Mr. Hat
Since discussions with regard to interesting bits about grandmasters (you have to admit that athough controversial postings, I think we have ALL read them with some degree of interest) have abounded as of late, let's toss another log onto the fi "What current GM is the most mentally unstable?" A valid inquiry...Bobby Fischer is both infamously brilliant and infamously mad, yet who else do we...

Will Bill announce election results this year before USCF? by Bruce Draney
As we near the end of the 2003 election campaign, it is worthwhile to bring up once again what is perceived as unfairness or favortism issues regarding USCF. Back in 2001, when I was running for the Board, Bill Goichberg posted official election results before USCF did in the Board election. While I don't see anything wrong with Bill or anyone else announcing election results, once they've been...

Who is the biggest jerk GM by Joshua B. Lilly
Perhaps he was having a bad day or something, that doesn`t seem to fit with the two times I`ve seen him at the Virginia Beach Millennium tournament. Of course I don`t know Grandmaster Rohde, so I can`t speak in his defence or anything, but he seemed normal and not conceited at all the two times I`ve encountered him in person. - Joshua B. Lilly

Defining a successful OMOV election. by Bruce Draney
As we near the eve of the first ever OMOV election it seems worthwhile to reflect on what might constitute a successful first OMOV Board vote. While some who pushed for OMOV for years might say that ANY OMOV result is successful, in my view, a truly successful OMOV vote would have to amount to at least 1,000 or more total voters. Anything below 1,000 in my view would be dismal. Even so, this is...
