RookFile: <DanLanglois: Why is okay to promise to keep a confession confidential and then leak it to media? > I don't think it is. Not that the police are going to show up at, but it seems to me that Dlugy would have a strong case for a civil lawsuit.

RookFile: John Curdo, a strong player. and a gentleman.
   Oct-12-22 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
RookFile: Korchnoi went to the well one time too many with this Ruy Lopez Open defense. It got him some early draws earlier in the match but you can be sure Karpov was ready for this one. Fischer never would have done this, he knew the power of Russian prep.
   Sep-04-22 Karpov - Timman FIDE World Championship Match (1993) (replies)
RookFile: Fischer should have done what Kasparov did. Just play matches outside of FIDE. He could have arranged a match with Gligoric in 10 minutes, but better still would have been a Korchnoi match. I think either one of these guys would have agreed to play by Fischer's rules.

RookFile: Here's how Arnold "Red" Auerbach, famous coach of the Celtics, handled this problem. He too wanted out of the grind. At the start of his last season, he made it publicly known that this was his last season as coach. He basically told the league, hit the Celtics with your best shot,
   Jun-26-22 Keene vs R G Wade, 1965 (replies)
RookFile: Some people don't make jokes when others get hurt.
   Jun-19-22 Foltys vs Reshevsky, 1950 (replies)
RookFile: White didn't do anything all game.
   Jun-16-22 S Polgar vs Westerinen, 1988 (replies)
RookFile: 11....Bh6 was bad.
