Re: Is Merseyside leaving the NCCU?

I am rarely surprised to see the regular snide remarks towards chess volunteers from Mr Robertson. But why do ECF representatives really need to show this is acceptable by joking about it as well, instead of putting him in his place? It is appalling to keep belittling the efforts of others, especia...

Re: Chess Prevention tax £ 8.33 a game

It is fine to highlight problems with the membership scheme but would Roger have anything constructive to contribute? What would you rather see being done Roger?

Re: Division Two 2016-17

It does look like group B is stronger than the other. 4 out of the top 5 seeds reside there including Alba who fielded a team with an average rating of 2312. I'm sure Guildford 3 will get stronger through the season too.

I'm to blame for the domain expiring.

Re: Yorkshire Chess website

Hopefully a temporary blip. We have been promised to have it back online this time tomorrow.

Thanks for noticing though.

Re: 2016 draw

We need some new faces to join the party...

So why Mr Pardoe do you propose an already formidable organiser to take over the GM Open team captaincy?

Re: Amusing Pairings

In the Guernsey chess open of 2007 Fred Hamperl, the organiser, was itching to have me paired against Tiger Hillarp Persson to give the pairing Ihor v Tigger. Yes people pronounce my name Eeyore!
Sadly the arbiter could not arrange it in the first 4 rounds and I couldn't keep pace beyond that.

Re: 2016 draw

Mr Pardoe is quick to volunteer people to various posts. Perhaps it is time to volunteer himself if he wants things doing the way he wants.

Re: An Alzheimer's Cure: Chess & Champagne At Simpsons

Justin Horton wrote. Of what? It's completely unclear to me what point you're even trying to make here. What do you think the research indicates regarding "brain training games" and Alzheimer's? It looks like you have a lack of comprehension of many things Justin. It was your friend Mr Bry...

Re: An Alzheimer's Cure: Chess & Champagne At Simpsons

Jonathan. If the Alzheimers society themselves are promoting their name into research on testing brain games then surely you can be humble and accept you are wrong. https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/braintraining That was found on a 5 minute google search. Maybe you will argue that I still haven't found...

Roger.
But we are discussing the studies that mention chess aren't we?
At least the rest of us seem to be.
So your comment above doesn't really add anything here does it!

Re: An Alzheimer's Cure: Chess & Champagne At Simpsons

He's obviously not an expert in the field of Alzheimer research and the evidence points him to be an ...
