"One of the things about Art is, you give people an excuse to take some time, to be quiet, and pay attention to something... And, maybe under the guise of enjoyment, think about important things in Life."

   Jan-29-15 Hans-Joachim Federer
achieve: Murray is playing some serious mind games with Berdych and the ref, and seems to enjoy it... AM also just now lobbed in a serve at 117 kmh; shades of Sabatini? ;)
   Jan-29-15 virginmind chessforum
achieve: Thank you < both > for wonderful contributions! -- For me Chess also is an escape, but the pure exploration of the depths of positions, seemingly simple, endgames especially, fascinated me, and my story bears quite some similarities/semblances to <virginmind>'s, in that ...
   Jan-25-15 Wei Yi vs A Haast, 2015 (replies)
achieve: Well, praise is very high, but if Anne had planted her Knight herself on f6, nothing this "spectacular" would ensue. 17.f6 is of course killing. The current WCC himself delivered a spectacular and classis game back when he was just 13, in the C-group in Wijk: Carlsen vs S Ernst, ...

achieve: For EXTRA EFFECT, obviously. That why he is "Tolly."

achieve: In Dutch we use the following, logical, progression for 10 to the 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th, 21th: Miljoen, Miljard, Biljoen, Biljard, Triljoen, Triljard. Words that are alike but have very different meaning we call, false friends. Also, we use points, not commas, as in a billion, ...
