  OhioChessFan: One thing only has been lent to youth and age in commonódiscontent.
Jun-28-08  dx9293: Marc just made his second IM norm, and his FIDE rating is climbing fast. I've always felt that he's a guy who can go as far as he wants to.
Jul-03-08  dumbgai: Marc Arnold just defeated 2700+ rated GM Vadim Milov in the first round of the World Open, with the black pieces! Hopefully the game will be added here soon, it was very nice.
Feb-13-10  Poisonpawns: Here is a game 60 i played with Marc in 2004 at the Marshall. It was a great game, which i lost in a time scramble. [Event "g60 Marshall"]

Aug-31-10  Dredge Rivers: I prefer his brother, Tom!
Aug-07-11  waustad: He had a nice win against E. Berg today at Politiken.

  HeMateMe: Did he once have a TV show set in Minneapolis?

  cro777: He served as a technical adviser for the CBS show opening of an NFL game.
Apr-12-12  waustad: His pursuit of a GM norm in St Louis took a slight hit with a draw vs. Margvelashvili today. He needs 2 pts in the last 3 rounds for a norm.
Apr-12-12  waustad: He won in the 7th round, so all he needs in one point in the last to rounds for a GM norm.
Apr-13-12  waustad: He just took a 24 move draw to clinch the GM norm. Congratulations!

  wordfunph: Marc Arnold crowned as 2012 U.S. Junior Champion, congrats!
Jul-21-12  SimonWebbsTiger: and I add my hearty congrats with <wordfunph>
Jul-29-13  waustad: Going into the final round of the DSK Chess Championship 2013 he's tied for third behind Alexander Ipatov and Sergei Tiviakov. His endgame in the final round looks drawish to me. A draw would clinch sole posession of 3rd place since Sergei Kasparov, with whom he was tied after 8 rounds was upset by Watu Kobese, a 2343 player from South Africa.
