Re: Yorkshire Chess website

I'm to blame for the domain expiring.
Auto renewal on an expired card. Renewal notice sent to spam.

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 Bryant who in...

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...

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

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

Mr Bryant has tried to discredit numerous theories and papers from scientists and reputable journalists without being any sort of expert in the field and without a shred of evidence to support this. He's obviously not an expert in the field of Alzheimer research and the evidence points him to be an ...

Peter Farr wrote "Jonathan Bryant has gone through this subject in a lot more detail and with a lot more rigour on the S&B blog. It may not have as much kudos as the New York Times, but that doesn't make the S&B stuff wrong." Is it Dr Jonathan Bryant leading Alzheimer researcher at Oxbridge Universi...

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

Thanks Chris, I'm aware of the definition but I'm not a scientist. Is it safe to assume that when papers are written by scientists and journalists are quoting them as evidence then so can we? The collective sources quoted above hold a bit more reputation that the Streatham Blog thingy that was used ...

Re: Wanted BCMs

We have them from 1974 - 1978 inclusive.
Then they start again from 1981 - 2006.
I also have a couple of volumes of Scottish Chess 1997-1999.
pm me if you are interested in any of them.
