Default Carol Jarecki biography by Sam Sloan

Carol Jarecki
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Carol Jarecki is known as "The Girl Who Broke the Bank at Monte
Carlo". However, she did not really break the bank at Monte Carlo. She
only broke it at the Italian Riviera.

In the 1960s, Carol, along with her husband, Richard Jarecki,
developed a system to beat the roulette wheel based upon inperfections
in the wheel. After consisently winning money and after the pit bosses
finally realized that the Jareckis had a system that really worked,
they were barred from admission to the casinos.

Carol then started selling her system to other gamblers. However,
these other gamblers did not always follow the system correctly and
often lost money, which made the gamblers angry. Eventually, Carol
Jarecki literally flew out of town on the private airplane which she
had purchased with her gambling winnings and stopped selling her
system.

Carol Jarecki later gave birth to a son who developed into a child
prodigy of chess and became a chess master and one of the top rated
players in the US.

A certified pilot, Carol started flying her son around to major chess
events in the United States. Carol became a "ChessMom". Soon, she
started working at those tournaments and eventually became a certified
tournament director. Before long, she was head TD at almost every
major chess event in the United States, even though her son no longer
played chess. She is now America's leading chess tournament director.
She is almost always the Head TD at the U.S. Chess Championship and at
the SuperNational Scholastic Championships, the National Elementary
Championship and so on. She is also an International Arbiter
recognized by FIDE, the World Chess Federation. She is a tournament
director, often the Chief TD, at almost all of the big events,
including the World Open, the National Open and so on. She regularly
works the World Chess Olympiad, sometimes as the Head Arbiter. She is
also usually the Delegate from the British Virgin Islands to the FIDE
Congress of the World Chess Federation. She has been the Chief Arbiter
at several of the World Chess Championship matches. She knows the
rules of tournament chess very well, especially since since she wrote
most of them.

Carol Jarecki has lots of enemies, too, mostly rival TDs who are angry
that she has taken all their directing jobs, especially since she is
not really a player. She is just an official. However, as long as most
of the top players regularly vote that she be in charge, she is
guaranteed to be able to keep working at top level chess events.

Carol Jarecki now lives in Las Vegas.

Horse****! Carol Jarecki later gave birth to a son who developed into a
child prodigy of chess and became a chess master and one of the top
rated players in the US.

When was he one of the top rated players in the US?

I'm just an unemployed asshole who has nothing better to do with my
life so I post craps on Wikipedia.

This is either a fake Sam Sloan, or Sam is really coming apart at the seams.
I'm inclined to suspect the former.
