  Sargon: <Stonehenge: <All rounds start at 1:30pm local time (7:30am EST), except for the last round, which begins at noon (6am EST).>

Not quite true:

All rounds in Wijk aan Zee start at 13.30 hrs except for the last round which starts at 12.00 hrs. <The Chess on Tour round (round 5 and 10) start at 14.00 hrs.>>

Thanks, Stonehenge, I made a correction to the "New Games" panel on the home page, and I'm sure the Editors will address the Tournament pages if needed.

Jan-09-19  Alien Math: <Stonehenge> well done with clue 39, i was also impressed how well Star Trek math combined to a game number

This site is the man's legacy. Keep up the good fight Sargon, Ms. Freeman, Annie K, WinKing, all the names of those managing this site I may have missed, and all the amazing volunteers.

  zanzibar: A big loss to <CG>.
Jan-18-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: <dumbgai: I have been a member of CG for almost 12 years, and have never won a single prize (admittedly I haven't tried very hard for most of them). Maybe I'm just a dumb guy but overall the clues have always been too difficult for me. And of course the ones that I might have managed to solve on my own, were all solved by someone else much faster.>

I tried when they first came out but found them too difficult for the time put in. So I have never solved any. I look at them...I tried one before Xmas and got part of the answer but then gave up. I was kind of on the right track.

I suspect it isn't that you (or I) are "dumb", in a deep sense we are all "challenged" (I am a special case but there is no therapy for my case of special stupidness, but I am sure there is hope for others!). But I believe that if you practise the methods, somewhat like they advise re cryptic crosswords, and learn which buttons to push and how etc etc. But there are people who love these things and do them all the time...

But I think, like chess itself, if you have time you can work these things out. I think I might if I spent the time but chess problems are hard enough let alone these.

But it doesn't worry me that others win the prizes etc but I wouldn't mind a discount on my membership regardless as I have also been on here for some years. One can only ask. Like Pooh Bear I come along in case there is a little something!

  saffuna: I read posts saying Nigel Short was "driven off" the site or "chased away." All I see can see is that he stopped posting. Can anyone point out where he was chased away?

  Check It Out: <saffuna> I have searched in vain for the supposed "offender" or posts that drove Nigel Short away.

Perhaps there is someone who can provide a clear answer.

  saffuna: Thanks. I can't find anything either. It's certainly not similar to Susan Polgar's exit.

  Dr Winston OBoogie: It's tpstar and his imagination. No one drove Nigel Short away from the site, he's stirring again. But for those watching at home he either blames me or harrylime depending on who takes notice of him. 🤷‍♂

  WinKing: Any chance of putting up the <Kramnik - Anand> game in the 'Live' feed. Very interesting endgame. Two rooks & two bishops vs. two rooks & two knights.
