"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."

achieve: just to avoid misunderstanding I do feel like many that Serena's composure and serving were OFF THE CHART, best serving under pressure I have seen for a decade, Men, or Women.

achieve: How do they determine the pairings if the scores are tied?

achieve: Wei Yi is technically and positionally already far advanced, so doubting his potential based on those qualities is quite a mistake, yet there are many many other factors that influence a career that still may be vulnerable in casu <Wei> because of a number of cultural/social ...

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: 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, ...
