    Chess can be sweet or sour depending on which side of the table you are sitting at the time but you'll come out smiling if you remember the golden rule—do unto others before they do you!

Johny Bolens put up his hand and then proceeded to complain, amazingly, about how he was unhappy that the arbiter had constantly announced the mobile-phone rule (in previous tournaments). Anyone who has met Bolens will have an idea what a character he is, and what a funny scene this would have been. The entire playing hall was listening to what he had to say and found it very amusing. His comments went on for quite some time, so it is hard to quote exactly what he said, but I definitely remember the following passage correctly:

    "Everytime you mention this mobile phone rule! I don't care if people talk on their mobile phone! Mobile phone people can talk as much as they like!" - Johny Bolens
    LOL, i heard that one!

    this clashes with KB's: one does not improve their position by resigning??
    Not sure where you got that from that I had said that. On the resigning thread I said the quote was "No one ever won a game by resigning". Probably the quote was not originally in English so there are slight variations in translation (no one/nobody).

    I have had positions so bad they would certainly have been improved by resigning. Won from plenty of them too.

    Don't tell Jenni

    They're weak, all women. They're stupid compared to men. They shouldn't play chess, you know. They're like beginners. They lose every single game against a man. There isn't a woman player in the world I can't give knight-odds to and still beat.

    Thats good, otherwise they would be trying to attack eachother all day. Unless it is Harry Potter Chess where a bishop can get a sword and smash another piece on an opposite coloured square when they are miles away, (not suggesting this can happen in real life, or can it...).
