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.

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

Hello,

My club (Bradford Chess Club) was looking to sell a number of bound volumes of BCMs. They are from the mid 1980s through to around 2010. I can check the exact years if you wish but they are in excellent condition.

Re: Standards of Conduct for ECF Officials

Crikey! When I read the ECF website I thought there must have been a murder or grand fraud for someone to be suspended. I don't think Alex needs the money that much. Oh hang on he's volunteered to do a job nobody in their right mind would want to do. Does the ECF really want to give him an excuse to...

Re: Tradewise agree generous funding to assist English chess

It really is great news for English chess. I wonder if Tradewise are looking for an advertising slogan. How about?

"Smart people go with Tradewise. Sponsors of the English Chess team."
