Re: Media comments on chess

If she is that good, it could give chess a tremendous boost, because it would inspire more women to learn to play and they would teach their sons.

Regards Peter.

Re: Peter Turland is a grandfather

Thanks for that Jack, thing is, now I'm a grandfather, I don't mind so much, growing old.

Something else I'm excited about, in September, my daughter gets to run her own primary school. (she is not the one who made me a grandparent, that was my son)

Re: Master Game on YouTube.

No Stewart, but seeing how she is not one year old, 'till the 6th of June, not at all surprising.

Peter Turland is a grandfather

Hey it's been a long while, although the website had recorded my password, it did not tell me what I had called myself, so it took me a while to track that down, before I could log in. As I am now logged in again after ages and ages, hello everybody. There has been a change in my life since I was la...

Re: preparation for tournament

The art of chess can be summed up simply, the world your head is inside of, and the world that is inside your head.

Re: "I fear nobody but the dentist"

I revolt on behalf of dentists. A good few years ago, because of loose teeth in the upper jaw, I had them removed, now because I forget to take them out sometimes, the routine of teeth removal and placing in a goblet of Steradent escapes me sometimes. My mouth is now happier because of it's articial...

Yes. For example, as much as you think you dislike KI, RJF would have been worse.

Re: President of FIDE

If chess became more mainstream (puts hands together and prays:) it would generate more funds and could afford more desk wallahs, surely the function of a president is not admin? What needs to happen is, the same kind of thing that used to happen with Beetlemania, except with Magnus. Teaching the yo...

Re: President of FIDE

Is it being suggested that the World Champion should be President, or that Magnus Carlsen should be? These may not always be the same thing. True, what I'm suggesting is, being the best at chess could actually mean something. To put it another way, what is Ilyumzhinov's grade? My grade at it's best...
