    Yet chess isn't in there yet.

    How Pathetic.

    Do you post in light colours so the rubbish you post can't be read?
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    Thumbs down Gary Wastell

    Not realising thi opportunity to raise the profile of chess in the wider community is understandable considering the laziness and general slackness of SOME of our administrators one of whom is none other than Gary Wastell President of Chess Victoria

    ..and Vice President of the ACF. No wonder chess cannot get corporate sponsorship...but then again do SOME in the 'Chess Administrator' community actually WANT corporate sponsorship. They might then have to justify what they do (or NOT do) and their positions.

    Doyle Bronson's book is one of the best.. I think it is called 'Theory of Poker' or something.

    Poker is an awful game, I hate it. The thing is, I'm actually pretty good at it and it can be quite profitable but it consumes your soul - and it's an even more hateful game than chess because you get really bad beats that are purely based on chance.

    If you want to make some $$$, take it up but don't expect to love it!
