SimonWebbsTiger: the UK has been guilty of some pretty awful novelty records. One such, Leonard Nimoy in memoriam, is the Firm's "Star Trekkin'" from the 1980s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZS...

SimonWebbsTiger: @<Ray> will you be writing a bit about "the crusties." ie John Nunn, Jon Speelman, Keith Arkell, Terry Chapman and the most self confessed senile of them all, Nigel Short? (World Senior Team Chp, 50+.) So great to see that part of the silver Olympiad team back ...

SimonWebbsTiger: oh good grief....It's just like the epic games of the Kosintseva sisters.

SimonWebbsTiger: a nice, brand new profile of Wes on Chessbase (part 1 of 2) http://en.chessbase.com/post/wesley...

SimonWebbsTiger: a little bit of info, which is worth keeping in mind. It is almost the Sabbath so they start earlier - 11am Israeli time (GMT +2) - tomorrow, Friday.

SimonWebbsTiger: @<entropy35> this website usually helps http://2700chess.com/ Alas, some entries are "many 2700+ players" so you will have to check individual tourney websites. Aeroflot Open might be a guess.
 
   Feb-23-15 Ljubojevic vs Karpov, 1993 (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<Nova> not a bad observation about 15...Bd7. A few years ago I would rush with ...f7-f5. It's the good thing about meeting IMs and GMs in tourney chess because they will mention such subtle improvements on one's play. They make just the right number of preparatory ...
 
   Feb-22-15 Bunratty Chess Festival (2015) (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<Sokrates> here's a poser. Can you, or others, think of a similar event with the participation of top ranked GMs; I include Nigel and Gawain here, not just Wes? Bobby Fischer won an Open (with 7/7) in the US shortly before his 11/11 US Chp. win in 63/64. From ...

SimonWebbsTiger: 2.5/3, <Dom>. http://www.bunrattychess.com/classi... One hopes so. He said before he went from the chess24 coverage that if not in this half year, he is giving up chasing it.
