    Cher probably gets her wins by distraction, wearing a see-through top.

    I remember reading Isaac Asimov saying he was too impulsive to be very good at chess. He would see what he thought was a good move, and make it, rather than thinking longer about whether there was a better move.

    I have seen the moves in a Ray Charles vs. Larry Evans game. Remember, RC was blind!

    Evans evened it out, he turned the lights off.

    oddly enough, I don't see Marcel Duchamp, who probably would have won the tourney.

    My new friend beat out Magnus Carsen as chess player of the year, Wow!!!

    Oh! That is just in Scotland. I would bet that robbie carrobie was the deciding vote. Oh no, that can't be for he is a Jehovah's Witness, they are not allowed to vote.
