(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.

Sep-20-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: <Trust me, I dont see much chance for Bradford Hillary here.. hehehe>

The 2nd time you've ever made me laugh haha.

The 1st was when I saw your face :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: you didnt..still chasing ghosts.. The wrong guy is already in jail probably due to the mighty Bradford Police. LOL

  Big Pawn: < Bobsterman3000: <Dr Winston OBoogie: I know I can count on your vote Bob, lol. >

Whoa, whoa, whoa people.


click here to see:



<Mark> just likes to be dominated, even if it has to be on a chess forum. It's part of his trauma.

Now I know why everyone hates this guy.

Oh well.

How embarrassing it must be for him to post like this when he's drunk and drugged up. Imagine that!

No thanks.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: hehehe it is funny huh?
Problem is that he has no shame at all..
Tomorrow he will act like today never happened..Thats how addicts acts..
Sep-20-17  Bobsterman3000: <Mark> is basking in the attention. lol

As all the boys line up at the polling station, here's <Mark>:

Sep-20-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: So basically you're a coward? Tuxy this is the truth. I've got more friends on this site than you and KS (which isn't hard, lol) put together. Nobody "hates me" bar keyser and that's because he's a psychotic creep who's obsessed with me. Hates a strong word, I don't hate <anyone> not even Trump, although it's close, lol If you're so confident get to the cafe and leave these people in peace? We'll take a 48 hour vote loser(S) leave for good? How's that sound pumpkin?

PS. Keyser still going on about "Robbed bishop" LMAO (It's <ROBED!>) from 5 years ago is hilarious.

I know 100% for a fact I'm more liked here than the pair of you. Don't believe me? OVER. TO. THE. CAFE??

Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: So what are the Chavs ingesting over there in the UK nowadays that is making them so animated and stupid? Krokodil? Jenkem?

<Mark> is a looney. Funny guy, though.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: He is poor.I would bet sniff shoe glue..


Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: <Keyser Soze: He is poor.I would bet sniff shoe glue.. >

His knee pad collection is worth at least 10,000 pounds.

Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Creepy Soze who no one likes... Over to the cafe sunshine.

PS. Stop rigging this voting system you skinny little curly haired <criminal> LOL.

Go ask Daniel what's coming? Seriously go ask him?? I'll bet he doesn't reply to you I'll bet you a months barmaidian wages ? Creepy freak... HOLA!! To the cafe

Sep-21-17  SugarDom: I vote for the genius BigPawn over the excon druggie.
Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: <Mark> and what the hell* did you do with <Nizzle>?

As soon as you start proclaiming him "chief of your staff" he disappears into thin air. Probably at a clinic getting 5 full courses of antibiotics after being in proximity to you after one of your screamers getting dumped by 3 blokes in one weekend. lol

  Keyser Soze: <SugarDom: I vote for the genius BigPawn over the excon druggie>

He need to find nizzle on Bhutan. Sure vote for the criminal heheh

Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: <Bobsterman3000: <Mark> and what the hell* did you do with <Nizzle>?>

#BinBagged haha 😂.

Sugarlips.. I respect your vote and acknowledge it but you need to cast it in the cafe. Props for disregarding the barmaid who's on #StalkWatch 24/7. Not quite sure why the creep gave you two votes but what the hell :)

No more chatter here... To the cafe!!

Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: <Winston - I don't like criminals Bob.>

I'm still really chuckling over this one.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: Bob whats your vote?
Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: I dunno, <Winston> could be great in office as the Mayor of a big American city since he <"doesn't like criminals">. He would bring law & order.


Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: LMAO 😂 😂 😂 "Bob... Pweeeze vote for meeeemimimimi" LOL.

How many times Keyser?? Not HERE. In the cafe.

Regulars. I apologize for KS behaviour tonight. But please take into account he's not slept and he's a lawyer :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Big Pawn: Poor <Mark>, just like his mother and father. The guy comes to the forum drunk, brags about being an ex-con, tells the world he does drugs, makes an azz out of himself with no redeeming qualities, and then wants to poll a forum full of adults about how cool he is?

<Mark> never, ever talks about anything interesting, and if he does, he doesn't talk about the interesting part and is unaware of what it is, opting instead to blather on like a student facing the wall in remedial class.

Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: THE CAFE!!! These people are sick of you and they don't even like Keyser. Get to the cafe of button it sunshine!
Sep-21-17  Bobsterman3000: My vote goes to <Mark>... if the election is <British Chav Most Likely to Devolve into a Homoerotic Ball of Psychosis>.
Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Thank you Robert but the vote is null and void unless you cast it in the cafe :)

  Big Pawn: Gay Frogs are Real! Deal With It!!


Alex Jones

Sep-21-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: And here you are frog boy 🐸
