  1. That’s true Ian. It’s a metaphor, but of course could be taken as a slight to “draff”. People identify checkers with the child’s game they grew up playing and chess with a grown-ups game.

    However, they would never understand the level of checkers of a Ron “Suki” King or draughts “African Lion”, Jean-Marc Djofang.

  2. Well done! I just got a chance to speak with CHESSLIFE ONLINE today and one of the ideas i have been using since ICC of 1998 was to introduce an ULTRAMODERN FLUCTUATING RATING SYSTEM vs their traditional gms ive been competiing with them since that time and it seems to cofuse the classical chess a bit! Gotta run more test on cuz i believe the current systems maybe dated a bit, maybe that could be one reason some of the women arent scorin so well with some of the higher guys!!!

  3. Sup drummassss!!! oh so ur not impressed with my ULTRAMODERN FLUCTUATIN RATIN SYSTEM , huh? well maybe after some of the top guys start talkin about in now that they readin this maybe u will say to urself AHHAA!!! GENIUS! ok we will wait and see but it might take them a while they gotta study it first! ULTRAMODERN!!!
