    btw. the book chess for tigers by webb is one the best
    chess book i've ever read.

    the chapter 'how to trap heffalumps' is a classic.
    in fact, the example game in that chapter is
    browne-taha, 1972 skopje olympiad, where browne (australia) is the haffalump.

    ABC is tonight repeating a 4 Corners special at 11:05pm. It's all about fear and loathing and young people taking drugs (and why some people should not go near drugs).

    Edit: Of course, in the Webb case, the one could have nothing to do with the other. It is terrible form of me to automatically assume that it did.

    A Tribute to Simon Webb

    Thinking about Simon Webb made me dig up a game played by him back in 1991.

    Meister,Y (2430) - Webb,S (2415) [E20]
    EUCup Poliot-Wasa URS (1), 1991
