|Apr-10-11|| ||Harvestman: What are the entry criteria for this? What makes a player a senior?|
|Apr-11-11|| ||dakgootje: You have to have forfeited at least once because you fell asleep.|

I don't know.Maybe you have to be at least 65.I think there should be some wagering from this tournament.

|Apr-11-11|| ||Shams: Women live longer than men, yet become seniors earlier?|
|Apr-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: I recognize a few names. Timsoshenko, Suba, and Nona G.|
|Apr-11-11|| ||TheFocus: The time-delay feature would come in handy here. Besides, every senior is allowed to stop the clock once during the game for a few minutes nap or just to show off pictures of their grandkids.|
|Apr-11-11|| ||HeMateMe: I'm sure Fischer would have demanded a patent, if such a feature could be put on a chess clock.|
|Apr-11-11|| ||TheFocus: Wow! What an idea! A time-delay chess clock!
Maybe we could even try mixing the pieces in a random fashion on the first rank instead of that same old boring set-up. We could call it "Mixed-up Chess" or some such like.
Man, the future of chess is looking better every day.

Kupreichik, author of the transpositional 5...Bd7 in the Sicilian.
Let's see...Algimantas Butnorius, uh, the "Notorious B.U.T." Strutinskaya, known for her ambulatory gamesmanship. Tomas Olives, who smells like pimento. Jan Rooze, master of japery. Giovanni "Who da cello!?" Iudicello. It's a murderer's row here.
|Apr-11-11|| ||zubenator: I believe it's 60 years for men and 50 for women. but I don't remember now where I saw that|

|Apr-12-11|| ||Skakalec: Kortchnoi is not here. He is not senior any more. He is more like Methusalems now (together with Gligoric, Taimanov, Ivkov and few others)|
|Apr-12-11|| ||TheFocus: Nice to see Nona doing so well.|
|Apr-14-11|| ||Manuel G. Vergara: Every kibitzer here sounds funny eh! hehehe|
|Apr-14-11|| ||HeMateMe: ...thats because we're typing underwater! (I'll be here all week, $10 cover, two drink minimum...)|
|Apr-19-11|| ||Everett: So has Suba won? That would be great for him. Congratulations!|
