Shams: <Absentee> did write that comment. Nobody asked him about it. At the time I guessed he was coming from the left when he said that and was contemplating some sort of trotskyite galvanization of the global non-elites as a response to Trump.

Shams: <Abdel Irada> A fine post. This is my favorite Sally Field scene ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGX...

Shams: <MostlyWatch> Another idea is to give her X number of free moves at the start of the game (six is a good number) with the caveat that her pieces can't cross the fourth rank.

Shams: There was a promising young Amish player, Anna Baptist.
 
   Feb-05-17 Yifan Hou (replies)
 
Shams: <Absentee> <Besides, I don't remember Hou ever claiming that the pairings were manipulated - those were the nitwits on the internet.> Yermolinsky among them, but what would he know about Swiss pairings.
 
   Feb-03-17 Yifan Hou vs B Lalith, 2017 (replies)
 
Shams: <Tiggler> Good point.
 
   Jan-28-17 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Shams: <An Englishman> Great story.
 
   Jan-24-17 Bent Larsen (replies)
 
Shams: I'd love to buy a round of rare books but I can't find the bell, sorry gents.
 
   Jan-24-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
 
Shams: At least we aren't writing slightly creepy comments about 16-year-old female players.
 
   Jan-24-17 Wei Yi vs B Adhiban, 2017 (replies)
 
Shams: Exhausting, yes, but if you have to play a marathon this is an opportune time: the day after a rest day, and with only one more game before the next rest day. Tomorrow Adhiban has White against an out-of-form Nepo. Will he take a short draw or try to jump into the pack just above him ...
