  OhioChessFan: They Shoot Horses Don't They? was made in 69, but who's counting?

  OhioChessFan: <STF> click on the board on the home page, and you'll be at the game page. Then you can either click on a move in the game score to the right of the board, on any particular move to take the position to that point, eg 1. d4 or 15. Rac1, or you can click on the right pointing arrow at the bottom of the board to move ahead one ply.

  WannaBe: <Memethecat>

1. CG.com currently only have Live Games as a mobile-friendly page. All other pages are designed as regular 'desktop' version.

2. Get a bigger 'screened' mobile device.

3. Shrink your finger. Just the one (index finger?) you use for the touch screen.

4. Quit Chess.

  Chess for life: So is there going to be a World Chess Championship match every year now?
Jan-10-13  Deus Ex Alekhina: Some of the films of the late 1960's and early 70's saw the rise of the anti-hero. Hollywood, in a reaction against what it felt was a corrupt political system, picked attractive young actors to portray and glamourize well known criminals. Butch Cassidey and the Sundance Kid and Bonnie and Clyde come to mind. Cool Hand Luke was fiction, but the criminals on the chain-gang were the "good guys" and the prison admin were the "bad guys".
Jan-10-13  Wayne Proudlove: If a guy offers you a rook exchange at his end of the board and you say, "Meh, I'll see what happens" and swoop down and grab it, is that a good play? Something you might see at grandmaster level?
Jan-11-13  rebjorn: The topic of performance enhancing drugs in chess came up at the Magnus Carlsen forum. I wonder if any competitive chess players would care to comment on this- would beta blockers provide a benefit in tournaments? Are they or others being used by tournament players?

  HeMateMe: Is there any evidence that drugs exist that can make a person play chess better?
Jan-11-13  STF92: Thank you talisman. I'll try the update.
Jan-11-13  Memethecat: Thanks WannaBe, I've already considered severing the index finger of a new born and after nipping of the end of my own get it sewn on, now I just need a Dr coat and the right blood match and I'm good to go!

  HeMateMe: The NBA basketball players now use the all blacks pre game ritual, lock arms, and move in a circle. Very synergistic.
