Re: Why did he did so?

Thanks, but still hard to see. In future years this moment may well come to be regarded as one of the most significant episodes in 21st century chess history. The move is indeed hard to see. After all, a player as great as Fabiano Caruana missed it. He was expecting to reach the drawing line given ...

Re: Is This A Record?

I think Tim's question might be answered - at least partially - using a Chess Query Language query against an established and comprehensive database of games. I'd do this myself but am pressed for time at the moment. Excuse me, got a question. Is CQL simiilar to SQL? where is the database? if It is...

FIDE Trainers' Commission (TRG)

Hello. The membership fee is relatively high (60 Euros for a 4-year license, approx. 1950000 IRR for each year). But we could use high quality surveys and book by IM Martin and other top-trainers of the world as compensation. There will no be such compensations anymore, so I wonder what would be the...

What do I do?

Hello. My Caterpillar (Cat S40) cellphone was lost (I left it in a public taxi) in Iran and now I want to buy a new one while in Canada, Calgary. I wonder what cellphone I buy. Just found an Alcatel online, but am not sure if it will serve me well. We had bought the S40 because it was strong. I tend...

What does it mean that an in-between move is brusquely imposed?

Re: The English Language

Re: The English Language

The reference to a mill in "grist to the mill' is a general one. An example of a 'mill' is a windmill. Windmills used to be a common sight in Europe. Do you know what windmills look like and what purpose they serve(d)? (If you look back through this thread at my comments you will find I tried, and ...

In a sense, perhaps. "Enables" may be an even better word though.
The problem is that the reference of "the mill" is not known to me. That is, I can't know it "enables" what or even opens what way.

Re: The English Language

something that you can use to your advantage is a tool, isn't it?
So what is the difference between grist for the mill and a tool/.
