   Oct-08-15 Millionaire Chess (2015) (replies)
Shams: The real star in the making here might be Kamsky's groovy 70s hair style.
   Oct-08-15 A Greenfeld vs Short, 2015 (replies)
Shams: Short has used this <3...Bg4> setup before with success. Annoyingly Delchev doesn't even mention this move in his book _The Modern Reti_.
   Oct-08-15 I Lysyj vs E Inarkiev, 2015
Shams: Thanks for the cheer, fellas. Anyway yes I agree with <apexin>, a fine and very interesting game. The players were in close to new territory by just the ninth move.

Shams: <Stevie King> Vladimir Nabokov had Vera but no buddy.

Shams: <al wazir> <The Bible is actually rather weak on social activism in the here and now. It says we'll always have the poor, what are ya gonna do about that. (And shrugs its metaphorical shoulders.)> It's a bit more complicated that that, crabcake.* "The Bible" doesn't speak ...

Shams: Silman tells a funny story about this game:
   Oct-07-15 N Dzagnidze vs M Muzychuk, 2015 (replies)
Shams: What a wall on the g-file. Fun final position for beginners-- see how long it takes them to find 21.Kh2 Kg7! and convince themselves there is nothing to be done to save White.
   Oct-07-15 Smirin vs Shirov, 2015 (replies)
Shams: <whiteshark> Nice deflection shot-- the Black knight is deflected from two important squares, d4 and e7. <20...Nxb4 21.Bd4 Qe6 22.Qg4> looks resignable.

Shams: From the twitter feed *TweetsofOld": <Base ball was played by electric light in Indiana last week, but the fielders had to carry lanterns to find the ball after a hit. ND1883> (I presume that means North Dakota.)

Shams: <td> One of those trends that never seemed to get off the ground.
