  Richard Taylor: <Resignation Trap> Thanks for that - good to see Black people doing well at (and getting "into" chess) chess and Golding starting a chess club.

The human side of Chess.

  WannaBe: Excellent article in this month issue of Chess Life, his name was mentioned in that particular article.

It was a pleasure and an absolute joy to have met Ernest (Please call me Steve) Colding in Chicago last year!!

And yes, Steve, I'm still play the Sicilian! =)
