Default Sloan vs. Goichberg, Motion for a TRO

On Apr 12, 10:22*am, samsloan wrote:

6. One must understand that Goichberg runs prize-money tournaments all
across the United States. For example, he runs the World Open over
July 4th Weekend. This year, the World Open charges a minimum entry
fee of $303 and offers projected prizes of $300,000 (three hundred
thousand dollars) with $225,000 guaranteed. This is essentially a
gambling operation where Goichberg is the house. The players who enter
and pay their $303 are all convinced that they are going to win one of
the big cash prizes. In reality, the prizes are almost always won by
children. This is because the players are divided by rating category
and because children learn quicker than adults, the children are often
under-rated and thus defeat the order and equally rated adults. In
short, if a kid is playing an adult and they both have the same
rating, the kid will almost always win.

7. Nevertheless, adults continue to pay their $303 to these Goichberg
gambling operating, firmly believing that they will finally beat these
kids and win the money, even though this almost never happens.


Sounds like you are ****ed off at losing to an 8 year old IM Sam.

And you are unaware of the numerous court decisions that say chess is
not a gambling operations but a game of skill, like poker.

Google in your PACER these decisions.

I have never lost to a 8-year-old.

They have to be 10 before they can beat me.
