Jun-10-05  MrMrsKnight: What a badly played game by Thomas. At a glance it looked to me like moves 10 through 16 were all mistakes. Maybe he had a headache that day or something.

  Domdaniel: A very nice win by Menchik, representing what certain dinosaurian ex-soviets still term "the weaker sex".

Ouch. And hooray for the tender gender.

  perfidious: <Dom> As recently as 1972, a winner of the WSOP wrote that he believed women were meant to be loved and not to play poker.

No idea how he felt by the end of his life, but my guess is that his views may have modified a bit if he tangled with the likes of some women I have encountered on the felt.

Some can play chess a little, too.......

Yeah, but I can see his point that being loved and playing poker are mutually exclusive.

  perfidious: Amarillo Slim was right about that, though I have spent time away from the tables with top players who were also decent company in play. The strong master Dennis Waterman, who turned to poker, is one.
