Marmot PFL: <The GAO has issued several reports showing that <illegal> immigrants commit crimes at many times that rate of the general US population:> If you count arrests for entering the country illegally in the crime total than it's probably true, but for most crimes that ...

Marmot PFL: Petrosian's fifth straight loss to start the USSR ch. Has any other future WC ever lost five straight games?* Many players might have lost heart after such a start and given up chess entirely, but not Petrosian. *Kasparov said he never lost three straight games until a match with
   Apr-26-17 W So vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Played Catalan for some time and hardly ever lost, but also didn't win enough to make it worthwhile for me to play in short tournaments where wins are important.

Marmot PFL: mate in 3 begins with 25...Qh1+, very pretty unless you're playing white.
   Apr-24-17 Keres vs Tal, 1959
Marmot PFL: They were saving energy for the non-soviet players.
   Apr-24-17 Tal vs E Bhend, 1959 (replies)
Marmot PFL: It was always best to play Tal in round 1.
   Apr-24-17 Kramnik vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: The first half of this game looks like a typical Spanish with black defending and reaching what looks like an equal game. Suddenly white sacrifices a rook for open lines to black's king and three passed pawns, which however are not very far advanced. After this positional ...
