Re: FIDE Senior Championships 2019

Re Keith's, David's and Simon's posts, what's wrong with clicking on 'ECF Grand Prix' on the ECF website home page?

Five seconds tops, as David Gilbert says.

Come on guys......

Re: Chess in Newspapers

Spoiler alert, Stewart. Of course it’s not f****** genuine. On the evidence so far, why would you believe anything Fields writes?

Re: Greenlandic Chess

That comes over as a little bit po-faced. More fool any forum poster for taking such nonsense seriously. It’s hardly on the Trump or Putin fake news scale.

Re: ECF Grading Proposals

Ah, the totals seem to have been removed when the post was updated. Anyway, 72% in favour of monthly grading, 80% in favour of four figures.

Re: Division One 2018-19

And still, absolutely nothing on twitter or other chess media. The lack of general interest and writing on 4NCL has hit absolute rock bottom this year (one page covering first four rounds in CHESS, as a further example). I am not casting blame - like everyone else, I would do it if I had more time ...

Re: World Teams 2019

Are any of the photos good enough to see what the badges say. I can't see any obvious signs of company names on there, so that would indicate that it is not that sort of sponsorship.

Re: Anne Sunnucks/Mothersill (1927-2014)

I'm not sure Edward Winter is ever terribly impressed with anything. Perhaps he should sign up as an ecforum poster.
