Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-27-05  weary willy: Largely dropped out of OTB chess, but a strong CC player and kickboxer.


Oct-27-05  Koster: Serves his son right for kickboxing a helpless dog. That's just awful. I hope he learned his lesson.
Nov-27-05  child of my tears: <Koster> I think you've misread the article.

When it says "Beating something with four legs was just too much for him," it means that he was unable to fight off a dog that randomly attacked him before it was able to bite him (despite being a kickboxer).

I think you have understood it as though the son was beating-up on the dog, which I don't think he was!

Sep-12-15  20MovesAhead: who was this guy ????
Apr-13-17  Nosnibor: Happy birthday Peter. Your book that you produced in 1975 "The Best Of Karpov" is one of the best I have read and so instructive.
