(born Mar-22-1953, 64 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

  WannaBe: <Nisjesram> No, it's not the forum, it's the posters who can't post accurate information and who can't follow a discussion/debate.

Hence, only those 2 are on my ig list. I still read this page and participate.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <it's the posters who can't post accurate information and who can't follow a discussion/debate.>

I ask <wannabe> to re-post any <inaccurate information> I have posted, so I can correct it.

Primarily I think <wannabe> got upset with the questions I was asking, such as how much undeveloped land suitable for homes in San Mateo.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Marmot PFL: <What I will definitely stand by is that there is not undeveloped land, or extrremely little, for sale in SF for building a new home.If you want a new home you will have to buy an existing one and knock it down. Assuming that's perrmitted.>

Free housing here, just do as you're told and smile.

America is like when Britney Spears went from that nice guy Justin Timberlake to that trashy "OMG what is she thinking!? guy K-Fed! She went from the sweet, kinda pretty, polite and respectful girl you could take home to your mum to someone who became <instantly unattractive> the moment you realize she'd been violated by K-Fed, the kinda chick you wouldn't touch with a barge pole. Trump is American erectile dysfunction, no one wants nothing to deal with or go near America now he's violating you!

America is Britney Spears.

Trump is D-Fed

Femto Chopra, the almighty of a million Planck lengths.

The petite man of peace.

  tpstar: <WannaBe> Search this page for "goddam liar" sometime, just for fun and frivolity. :P

<diceman> Q: What's better than roses on my piano?

Before I forget, Donald Trump is definitely "in touch" with his female supporters. According to our media, he gropes them all the time.

Jun-23-17  Bobsterman3000: Happy Friday, Chicken Littles.

Costco has a wonderful weekend sale on Kleenex, you people really need to buy in bulk.

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <Marmot PFL: How can anyone afford SF?>

Nancy Pelosi does just fine!

You must not be sodimizing the taxpayer enough!

...or stomping the minority.

They want Kleenex Stamps!

Jun-23-17  Bobsterman3000: France has up to 690 citizens currently serving under ISIS, expecting them to return France soon:

Ahhhhh Abdel, our part-time mathmatician, uses Fibonacci numbers for his meats!

Jun-23-17  User not found: Well this page was just getting a little less pathetic, childish and "Eliteless" over the past few pages, getting more informative with opinions that don't suck up to D-Fed and then liceman and Bob show up proving that there really are enough gullible moronic <followers> in America to elect Donald Trump! America is a laughing stock, the so called elite posters prove that having children with your siblings and cousins is a bad idea...The stupidity just hurts.

RIP Britney.

With rounding.
In honor of Fibonacci, he stayed there for 15.8 months!

He is the <White Nizzle>, a harmless good old boy with no girlfriend that needs attention.

He's a GOOD old boy!

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <saffuna: I believe they get to keep the tax break.>

After his vicious, vile, multi-trillion dollar beatdown of the minority.

Saffuna/Bartle is deeply, deeply, deeply, deeeeeeply, concerned about the taxpayer.

Remember, no liars as far as the eye can see.
Just immaculate, pristine, truth, and integrity!

Jun-23-17  Bobsterman3000: <UNF> goes on his podcast and laments that Brittney could cheapen herself (lol) by slumming it with K-Fed:

Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: <WannaBe>: .

Now you'll have to put the NYTimes on your Ignore list too.

Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: You too, <Bobsterman3000>.

Oh. The NYTimes is already on your I-list? Sorry about that.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Big Pawn: < Bobsterman3000: <UNF> goes on his podcast and laments that Brittney could cheapen herself (lol) by slumming it with K-Fed:>

Well you know that <Tabloid Tina> keeps up with all the juicy celebrity gossip.
