docbenway: In today's news, Airstrikes in Yemen Killed 68 Civilians in One Day, U.N. per today's NY Times. Says Be sure to say thanks when you leave, GMs.

docbenway: GM Short, how do you meld your criticisms of FIDE with your participation in the tournament in Saudi Arabia?
   Dec-26-17 World Rapid Championship (Women) (2017) (replies)
docbenway: I can understand some players being driven by desperation for the big prize fund but Carlsen apparently has plenty and for him to play there gives approval to the Saudis and their wholesale murders in Yemen, the dirt bag wahabis exporting jihad, and their treatment of women as ...

   Oct-03-17 Short vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
docbenway: mel gibson: "This is silly - I saw that line but there's no way I'd swap my Queen just to be a pawn up. And there's no way I'd resign by being a pawn down." Well, to me it's a lot more than a pawn. The only defense to losing the f4 pawn will be Bg3 turning it into a big pawn and ...
