<$140 pledged of $12,810 goal Only 13 days left...>
Is there another senior world championship in 2020?
|Aug-14-13|| ||perfidious: <Joerg>: There's an old New England saying which covers the odds of that happening: <You can wish in one hand, s**t in the other and see which fills first.>|
|Aug-14-13|| ||JoergWalter: : <perfidious>he can fill for a while if his hands are as big as his expectations|
|Aug-27-13|| ||FSR: He's still at $140 with twelve hours left. I'm thinking he may not reach his goal of $12,810.|
|Aug-27-13|| ||perfidious: Looks like the odds are agin it......|
|Aug-27-13|| ||FSR: Nope, he didn't make it. http://www.gofundme.com/3faxy8 I can't believe that no one jumped on the opportunity to get a signed copy of his novel <Amanda> for only $12,000. No doubt you could turn around and sell that puppy on eBay for $5 if you offered free shipping. Well, OK, probably not.|
|Aug-27-13|| ||perfidious: Dayum, Ah don't bleeve Taylor din't make it all the way!|
|Aug-28-13|| ||TheFocus: The flag is at half-mast today.|
|Aug-28-13|| ||FSR: <TheFocus> Try Viagra.|
|Aug-28-13|| ||OhioChessFan: <Here's a list of famous GMs--what do they have in common?>|
They don't mooch $20 off their daughters?
|Aug-28-13|| ||Phony Benoni: I am reminded of a comment by the <Hideous Hog>, one of Victor Mollo's immortal group of fictional bridge players:|
"Try to get an unsigned copy. Much rarer."
|Sep-15-13|| ||JoergWalter: He may try this approach next year:

|Nov-05-13|| ||Lutwidge: Does anyone know what the deal is with this: http://www.gofundme.com/4vjs5w ?|
I don't know really anything about IM Taylor, but his appeal seems genuine (in this case, at any rate) and urgent. That said, he apparently tried to post the above on chess.com and his blogs were removed. Anyhow, further information/details about this would be appreciated, as I would like to help (his wife's situation sounds absolutely dire) but am also loath to be caught in or, worse yet, propagate some sort of elaborate scam.
FWIW, a friend of mine called the oral surgeon (whose services they are trying to afford) and affirmed that his wife is indeed a patient there.
|Nov-05-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Crazy...|
|Nov-05-13|| ||DoctorD: I have a very similar situation going on although it is a more long-term problem but the cash needed for the solution is similarly lacking. I could never ask strangers for funding, but I wish her well and hope it works out for her.|
|Nov-05-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: I just want money. Any of you want to give me some?|
|Nov-06-13|| ||DoctorD: Easy to make fun of the situation, but I find that inappropriate. It certainly points out some of the problems with healthcare in this country.|
|Nov-25-13|| ||jancotianno: I wonder if he has a fund raising campaign ready for the next world senior tournament.|

|Dec-24-13|| ||john barleycorn: <SickedChess: Timothy in 1000 ways to die!>|
with only a dollar per death we will see him at the millionaire open...
|Apr-24-14|| ||bongcloudftw: In my opinion, there are loads of logic errors in his blog regarding methods for finding solutions. I wouldn't trust that guy.|
|Feb-09-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Timothy Taylor.|

Timothy Taylor fared well. He scored 5½/9, which placed him 2nd in the 2200-2299 range. He therefore won $2,500.00. His rating at the start of the tournament was 2251.|
He was behind Angelo Young, rating 2283, scored 6 points, won $5,000.00.
|Sep-01-19|| ||siggemannen: TT is a cool guy, and his piece about the trials and tribulations of a chess player (and a ladies man i guess) was really good.|
