Panning for gold

Here are a few nuggets from around the 'sphere:

The Closet Grandmaster has an interview with a former Sydney chess player who chose to leave the tournament circuit:

I didn't want to keep spending all my weekends playing old men, narrow minded chess kids and teenage chess punks.

That's a pretty good description of the BCC on many days, I'm sorry to say.

Jens at Pawn In The Game published a letter by IM Andrew Martin which raises interesting questions about Susan Polgar's recent Guinness world record breaking simul.

The Knights Errant have a sequel! Sancho has rode up alongside of Don again and as Sir Chubalot and Sir Semisolid they have formed the Knights of the Round Bottoms.
