Re: Game-inputting & replays

I had one or two on the Isle of Man where the player wrote N&d5, where the & was a squiggle that could reasonably be b, f or 6, with the knights on b6 and f6.

Re: 2018 World Championship in London

I don't see any reason not to do so. You tire your opponent out just as much as yourself by doing that.

Re: Game-inputting & replays

Anybody can input games; I go to a number of tournaments as a player-inputter.

Re: Division One 2018-19

I kicked off with a draw against Matthew Turner. Had I been feeling well, I'd have played on in the final position.

Re: ECF and the World Championship Match ?

If you use travelling time as a metric, the British is about as near to London next year as it is to me.

Re: ECF and the World Championship Match ?

FiveThirtyEight has picked up on it, possibly because an American is playing.

No idea who's claiming his pieces are well placed there, but I don't agree with him.

Re: Cheating in chess

Jack, That just shows that the ECF has not got it's code of conduct for it's members correct. Cheats need to be banned, and know if they are cheating that they will be banned from any future games of chess played under ECF/Fide rules. Yes, but how does it enforce that? The ECF has no reliable way o...

Re: Cheating in chess

The ECF can certainly ban him from events it itself organizes, such as the British Championships, but I'm not sure it has meaningful ban power beyond that.

Re: 2018 Women's World Championship

The Chess World Cup, and the 64-player Women's World Championship, are certainly better than the drawfest Round Robins we've become used to.

Re: European Club Cup 11-19 October 2018
