Re: My local paper

Thanks for the game Ed. Analysis suggests that 26...gxf5? is an error and that Bd7 was required instead to hold the draw.

Re: Female chess players threaten boycott after being told t

They should all boycott the event and have it in the UK instead. Of course they will all be forced to wear bikinis instead here and pose individually for a calendar afterwards. This will help to make the game look more glamorous, boost sponsorship and prize money. :D https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg...

Re: Dragon Yugoslav 12...Qe8!?

What do you suggest instead? Carlsen likes to play a6 (the Dragondorf) and wiki suggests Re8 but neither of those look particularly good to me. At least Qe8 gives black some drawing chances.
