|Sep-23-05|| ||roni.chessman: <At least Karpov shook Needleman's hand>|
Haha...Kasparov went Berserk when Radjabov won the "most beautiful game" prize (or was it a different title)
|Oct-27-05|| ||vampiero: the point of the spaghetti article was to critisize the catholic church, saying that "He" created everythign we touch and feel and that they have "overwhelming proof" of this. its obviously just a ironic critique of everything that creationistsa are claiming.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||ChessMan94: Karpov lost a game against Needleman... so what? Karpov should have felt like Capablanca who said something along the lines of: "When I lose a game it is like a millionaire giving a penny to a bum on the streets".|
|Oct-27-05|| ||jamesmaskell: LOL @ penny to a bum line.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||likestofork: <cu8sfan> Is this a Franco-American Flying Spaghetti Monster or a Chef Boyardee Flying Spaghetti Monster? Oh, no....is that a schism I smell cooking?|
|Nov-29-05|| ||Swapmeet: Conspiracy! They obviously paired him against Grischuk to knock him out early and give the rest of the GMs a better chance of winning.|

no, they are not criticizing the catholic church but the creationists who are probably in large part not roman-catholic (catholics are outnumbered in the usa).
i don't want to start a debate on evolution (and indeed didn't issue a statement). i just want to rectify a small detail.

|Oct-23-06|| ||ConLaMismaMano: On this recent torunament Needleman was 0.5 points shy of becoming Argentinas youngest GM ever (16 yo), he needed 7.5, but came up second behind Ricardi with 7 points out of 10 rounds (i think).|
|Nov-22-06|| ||Caissanist: Spanish-language article on the Buenos Aires tournament: http://www.chessbase.com/espanola/n....|
|Jun-28-07|| ||WannaBe: Just saw on the FIDE web-site, he is an IM, (his father just recently joined him as IM too!)|
Don't recall when the younger Needleman got his IM title.

|Aug-26-09|| ||WannaBe: Been a while, what's going on with with (this/the) kid?? Any tournment updates??|
|Oct-14-09|| ||tibone: what happened to him?|
|Feb-06-10|| ||Billy Vaughan: The only way to beat Needleman is with <Gemini Man>'s powers!|
|Jul-19-10|| ||Augalv: <what happened to him?>|
He quit chess.
|Aug-14-11|| ||wordfunph: his last tour was in 2007, hope he makes a comeback.|
