zanzibar: <chessgames> I won't warrant such behavior. The biggest polluter and propagator of insulting vile behavior on your site has the audacity to suggest Rogoff should be shut down?! What a hypocrite. You've deleted my post, all of which is true - unpleasant though it may be. Look

zanzibar: As far on-topic posts in this thread, all I can say is- <Ear today, gone tomorrow.>

zanzibar: <Nobody> Yes, you might be correct - at least on this forum. That would be a little sad (not for me, per se, but more generally). Still, <Missy>, you seem anxious to jump the gun, for some reason. After all, the post isn't even 24 hours old. .

zanzibar: Poor old SCID - semi-orphaned since first Shane left, then Pascal. The code base left behind isn't being keep coherent - as developers modify it for improvements in one area, while breaking sections of the code in others. Case in point - the xtab treatment, which is why I stayed ...

zanzibar: <<Duracell> For the promotion rules: I don't know! FIDE rules are free, but you must pay for USCF rules... That's odd and bad.> I agree. It is unfortunate. A local library has a copy (or had(?)) of the USCF rules. Maybe I'll check it out again and look up the rule. I ...
 
   Aug-18-17 Tarrasch vs Teichmann, 1912
 
zanzibar: Hmmm, I think 38.Rh7+ isn't really so imprecise, but rather, 39.Bd3 is (better is 39.Rh8+ for another "bite of the apple"(?)).
