|Oct-18-18|| ||Sargon: 105th British Championship is now up, including the tiebreak.|
|Oct-19-18|| ||Check It Out: Nice work!|
|Oct-19-18|| ||JimNorCal: Very glad to see this!
I followed along on another site at the time but there are lots of games I missed.
|Oct-19-18|| ||Check It Out: Congrats to Michael Adams. I met him in person once; a short fellow, also very nice and unassuming. Unlike that other stalwart of British chess, Short.|
|Oct-19-18|| ||perfidious: <CIO>, my impression the one time I met Short was the opposite: a father with his young son and I do not even recall us talking about chess at all, despite being at the New York Grand Prix (1994), with all sorts of high-powered names about.|
|Oct-20-18|| ||HeMateMe: is Howell the fellow that works in the securities industry (trader?), is not a full time chess professional?|
|Oct-20-18|| ||Troller: <HMM> That would be McShane. I believe Howell is full-time pro.|
|Oct-20-18|| ||Gudrun: who was the women's champ?|
|Oct-20-18|| ||HeMateMe: Adams used to own a condo in Florida, I think he sold it. Prescient on his part, get out ahead of the 21st century mega storms?|
|Oct-20-18|| ||Check It Out: <Gudrun>:Jovanka Houska|
|Oct-21-18|| ||JimNorCal: Yes, <HMM>, Adams must be more comfortable in England where "snowfalls are just a thing of the past".|
|Oct-21-18|| ||HeMateMe: well, you'd have to ask Mick why he sold his Florida property. I have no idea.|
|Oct-21-18|| ||Cibator: Just curious ..... how does a Hungarian get to play in the British Championship?|
|Oct-21-18|| ||JimNorCal: In past years, there's been complaints by the English that all kinds of folks get to play: Scots, Welsh, Cornish, Indians.|
I never heard of Hungarians though. Although some national championships let pretty much anyone play but reserve the title to the highest finishing person of that nationality.
|Oct-21-18|| ||MissScarlett: The expression you're looking for is <hors concours>.|
|Oct-21-18|| ||JimNorCal: Well, maybe hors concours can be used as "not competing for a prize", but isn't it more frequently used to mean "unrivaled", iow no one competes with them because they are beyond compare, in another category altogther? In which case, a foreigner might take first prize and technically are hors concours for the national title but really, they are not THAT far above the other top finishers ... or they got lucky and won some sloppy games, etc.|
Well, pardon me while I finish my "freedom fries".
|Oct-22-18|| ||Cibator: <JimNorCal>: Never heard "hors concours" (or horses' conkers, as some would have it) being used in the sense you mention. The usual French phrase/word for the latter is "sans pareil" or "nonpareil".|
