|Jan-30-12|| ||ketchuplover: Go Ray Go!|
|Feb-07-12|| ||dangerhump: Ray is playing in the 2012 Aeroflot tournament in Moscow starting today|
|Feb-07-12|| ||solskytz: <parisattack> you make "beating up 2300 players" sound so easy... like we're speaking of 1500's or something...|
last time I tried I got my knuckled bruised - and try me, I'm definitely no patzer.

Quite aside, to the best of my knowledge, to be a GM what you need is NORMS - three of them.
You need to stage a 2600 performence. Yeah - you got it chief - THREE times.
On top of it, you need an ELO higher than 2500 - yeah man, our guy's got it, big time!!
And what's more - you need to have those GM skulls in your resume for these norms to count. Bet you didn't know that!!
These chorisos are quite too hot for breakfast, I daresay... well ok - time for my morning blitz. How does the Benko gambit sound?

|Feb-10-12|| ||dumbgai: What the heck is Webster U and why do so many chess players go there? Surely their talents can get them into much better schools...?|

They are getting scholarships
|Feb-10-12|| ||Strongest Force: I think Webster U will win all team events of college players. Btw, where is this school? There might be lots of smack talk and g/5 blitz happening.|

Webster University its home campus in St. Louis, www.webster.edu is the only Tier 1, private, non-profit U.S.-based university providing a network of international residential campuses.
Coach GM Susan Polgar and the SPICE program (Susan Polgar Institute for Chess Excellence) to St. Louis. Susan is bringing her championship chess team from Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas, to Webster, along with a number of top players.
Susan said she felt that this would be a perfect location for her chess team as the Chess Club and Scholastic Center and World Chess Hall of Fame have already made St. Louis the center of chess in the U.S. Susan, her husband Paul Truong, and their family will move permanently to the St. Louis area in June, and the strong grandmasters will soon follow for the fall 2012 semester.

|Oct-25-12|| ||waustad: Happy b'day. Have a blast - for me 18 was a long time ago.|
|Oct-25-12|| ||joeyj: Happy Birthday GM Ray Robson !!!
and Congratulations for winning the 2012 SPICE CUP Open !!!
|Oct-25-12|| ||Abdel Irada: Now that Robson is celebrating his 18th birthday, perhaps it's time <ChessGames.com> gave him a birthday present: a new photo. In the present one, he looks about nine years old.|
|Oct-25-12|| ||brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday!|
|Jan-03-13|| ||waustad: Here is a much more recent picture: http://www.princeton.edu/main/image...|
|Jan-29-13|| ||waustad: I was playing through some of the games from the Panamerican Team Championships and ran into Robson vs Larrea. The result is given as 1-0, but if the game is correct, white looks to be dead lost. Does anybody know more about this? Here is a link to the png file: http://www.theweekinchess.com/asset...|
|Jan-29-13|| ||Shams: <waustad> <32.Rxh6??> indeed loses. Surely Caruana first played 32.Rf6 Qg7 and only then 33.Rxh6! 1-0|
|Jan-29-13|| ||waustad: <Caruana>? I think you meant Robson. The US has done well the first time through (one chart makes it look like a DRR since there are 3 columns still empty), and there are several players born in the US, which is always nice. Shankland is at 2/2. http://www.panamericanoequipes.blog...|
|Jan-29-13|| ||Shams: Right, Robson.|
|May-11-13|| ||norami: A much needed win today for Beam Stealchild.|
