apple scruffs: Nice pun, but the Shakespearean phrase is "hoist with his own petard" and I'd have preferred that. For one of the games in his <My 60 Memorable Games>, Fischer uses exactly that phrase.

apple scruffs: He's still in Moscow: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/201... For a while he was conjectured to be in or going to Norway, Iceland, Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador. Is it just me, or does anyone else see a superficial resemblance to Levon Aronian? So maybe it's worth a try to go to ...

apple scruffs: Q ex or no Q ex? Houdini gives the Queen exchange as its top line but personally I'd rather see a middlegame with Queens on.

apple scruffs: Planet Ivanchuk has been found. They're calling it CFBDSIR2149 at the moment but I'm hoping the IAU, the International Astronomical Union, will see the light and give this planet the name it really deserves. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/...

apple scruffs: <achk>, thanks for reminding me. I'd almost forgotten Adams withdrew from the GP...couple years ago, wasn't it?
