|Aug-20-14|| ||MarkFinan: <Diego Armando Maradona is arguably the greatest football player of all time. He played in four World Cups, and captained the Argentine team that won the title in 1986. Maradona has always been interested in chess, and was glad to be part of a remarkable Chess & Society campaign that is being staged in the United Arab Emirates.>|

|Aug-20-14|| ||Jim Bartle: <Wow, at lest he can now have the title of best soccer chess player ever..:o)>|
I think Simen Agdestein has that title sewed up.
|Aug-20-14|| ||Chess for life: Why must simul-givers have White in all their games? What's so much harder about having Black in all their games?|
|Aug-21-14|| ||Shams: <Chess for life> I think all Black would be fine too, but I've heard that some masters want to avoid having alternating colors on adjacent boards, to avoid shenanigans of a sort that you can probably guess. But it's hard to believe many players would waste a golden opportunity on a trivial parlor trick.|
I've heard Short takes both colors in simuls.
|Aug-21-14|| ||kellmano: It's advantageous to make the games as different as possible I think, or perhaps that is just blindfold simuls.|
|Aug-21-14|| ||perfidious: In my first simul, given by Walter Browne in late 1972, I got to play White: played 6.Bg5 against his Najdorf. Real treat for this then 1100 player. In those schoolboy days, there were other strong players who visited Vermont and I recall playing White against every one--Art Bisguier gave several displays, as did John Curdo.|
|Aug-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: Bisguier gave a simul at my college, but I didn't play.|
Just looking over at chessbase, the roster for the upcoming world junior championships in Pune, India. Not one American man or woman has been invited.
What have we done to anger the chess Gods?
|Aug-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: <http://en.chessbase.com/Portals/4/f...>|
This could make you feel old.
|Aug-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: this too!
