Useful top chess players by tomic
I found interesting item on the internet: During World War II, some of the top Chess players were also code breakers. British masters Harry Golombek, Stuart Milner-Barry and H. O'D. Alexander were on the team which broke the Nazi Enigma code. Does anybody have more information about it? Any comments? Regards, Goran Tomic

Chessmaster 2000 for DOS - Playing Strength? by Proboscis
Hi EZoto, Be assured, there is nothing 'wrong' with CM 3000! De initial versions of CM were definititely fun to play with and would still be suitable for the occasional player. It's just that with CM 4000 there was a sentational improvement in playing strength. Bedore that, CM had never really been taken seriously as compared to the Big Guys like Rebel, Chess Genius and Fritz.

Secret Soviet Training Methods by Ivan
I went to a scholastic tournament last weekend and noticed a man passing out flyers for chess lessons. I took a flyer and saw that he was advertising chess lessons and that he was knowledgable with the secret Soviet Training methods and uses them with his teaching. After reading this statement, I feel really sorry for all the parents and kids that believed it because I don't think that such an...

Chess master, 7, quits school by Aaron Kuperman
Seems rational. Even if he lived in New York or London, he'll want to start playing out of town tournaments fairly soon. Even if the school allows it, he'll miss too much school. He is much better off being home schooled. That's might be true of many kids, and is definitely true of any child who "stands out" (for good or bad), or has a career that isn't compatible with a school schedule. Home...

GM Revolt Over Publishing Games ! by KidDon
Harold Buck wrote: There's no frickin' way this thread belongs on rec.games.chess.analysis or rec.games.chess.computer. Anyway, the moves of a GM game are simply a recording of events that took place. If the room is open to the public, reporters should be able to record the events and publish them. If they don't like it, they should go play in a cave away from the public eye.
