Un or de suspending a suspended Twitter account

The instructions are vague and contradictory.

Re: Book-The Chess Scene

I'm pleased to confirm that I had no involvement in making them. I was asked to review the DVD however. I would love to read that review.... if only Tony Miles were alive! As I recall we wrote that we (BCM at the time) were extremely grateful to be able to review the DVD and we wished TC with his f...

Re: End of an era

Frankly, I'm not too sure that the wider world cares too much about plagiarism. I can say for sure that the academic community most certainly does. Maybe persons who care little about much in general are not worried about plagiarism assuming they knew what the word meant. Agreed, most academics can...

From Ray Keene's chess column in today's Spectator:

"After 42 years without missing a week, this is my last column for The Spectator."

The final game of the column is Keene-Kovacevic (1973).
Presumably Brighton based Byron Jacobs will have less work to do now ?

Re: Results of the ECF 2018/9 Grand Prix

Methinks it is time to invoke the famous "Ask the Director" feature of the ECF web site.

Will the DoHC (Adrian Elwin) make his thoughts known on this matter ?

In this case a conspiracy does seem unlikely, since the only person who really cares is Keith.
I would hope that the ECF would also care.

If they don't then perhaps they need to confirm that and then we know where we stand and the GP should be deprecated.

I managed to track down the following reports: [I can't find the 1989 CHESS coverage of Mickey's first British title - can anyone help? Was that ...
