achieve: I watched TT vs Williams I think, and was surprised how agile she appeared, being that chubby, BUT, changing directions left right on the baseline is a problem, but with her one two punches with that weighted serve of hers, she can camouflage, hehe. But she ought to lose at least 7 ...

achieve: And remember, that if you will resist this progress, you will fundamentally die out. A sacrifice has to be made, as always was the case, in order to progress and eventually attain Eternal Life! Salomon's Temple must be restored! Israel lives!! Good grief...

achieve: <chilly> or Chile, Chili Let's not turn countries into misspelled dishes, Turkey being the accepted exception.
   Aug-06-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
achieve: <Refused> Agreed - but Giri has learned a few lessons over recent confrontations, despite of his often haughty attitude. He is mostly growing up, and is improving with each month it seems.
   Aug-06-14 A Giri vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
achieve: Ha! - nice exchange sequence to simplify to BvN and pawns on the wrong color! Good vision and technique from Anish.
   Jul-28-14 Judit Polgar vs Bareev, 1993
achieve: Since this is a royal arsebeating in the last round of the tournament this must be from 1993, and clinching a full point for tourny victory, shared, at age 16, is remarkable... Stunning!
   Jul-18-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
achieve: Magnus would hurt So badly left front and center. Or is So maturing into a fine player like he promised? Must have missed that. My bad. But Magnus is very strong at the moment, stronger than anyone in history according to the numbers/ math.
   Jul-02-14 NakoSonorense chessforum (replies)
achieve: 4 European nations and 4 S. American nations in the quarters; nice even distribution, and note that the 4 from yurp are all neighbouring countries, two of them quite small! Costa Rica is the surprise package though... Belgium does lack an experienced striker, but the play against ...

achieve: Also, "fashionability, or old-fashionability" seems quite at odds with the search for truth of events perhaps happening many thousands of years ago. I know <moro>ovich - who is a good friend - means it in a broader context, the used text/phrasing is simply confusing at best, ...

achieve: <Jess> Glad to hear this was much to your liking, and you characterizing it as "exquisite" is - of course - fitting, exquisitely appropriate and all that, because the Old Bach was a master at his craft that we haven't seen since, barring perhaps a few exceptions. He is the ...
