Ginger GM Collection Sale

[Edit: originally posted in for sale - but probably more appropriate here]

A few people said they wished they had taken advantage of this last time - so posting here, just noticed it's on again

http://gingergm.com/shop/the-ginger-gm-collection

That's all of the DVDs for £45 I believe.

Re: WORLD RAPID & BLITZ CH - DOHA 2016

Probably a better bet than re-runs of the usual Xmas films on the telly. My lot have already declared that "there's nothing to watch". Funny that - with 200+ channels, sky box sets, netflix, etc. Without wishing to sound like a grumpy old man - I'm sure we all sat in a room and watched the...

Didn't Kamsky only take-up chess on the advice of his piano teacher, to help improve his concentration?

Re: New broadcast model for World Championship Match

They (Agon/worldChess) are complete crooks - sadly after a few days they eventually spotted my links to the chess24 coverage on their facebook pages - but I would encourage everyone to avoid giving Agon their $15 - either give chess24 a one month subscription or donate to CSC during the Classic inst...

Re: 11th 4NCL FIDE Rated Congress

@ Loz - wondered what was going on ... the pairings have Daniel down as a zero for Rnd4 - so I'd assumed he was ill or something and had been forced to withdraw ...

Tight finish seems likely, those tiebreak regulations will need a look-through

Re: Claims by C.J. de Mooi

This is actually quite inteteresting and I think good - it prevents fishing trips and extraditing people just to ask them questions (which the police should travel to ask). If you don't even have enough to generate an arrest warrant in your own country (and have done so) then don;t expect to be able...

Re: Queen against pawn.

Chris - this is news to me, so interested. I#d always thought that all 'normal' positions (so not with the Q en prise or somehow blocked in the far corner by your own kign) with a bishop pawn on the 6th were lost. Can you giver an example of the draws you are thinking of?

Thanks,

Paul
