    May be Jose can play Ok OTB

    Jose Silva is currently 2436 at rapid and 2416 at blitz on lichess.org: https://lichess.org/@/JoseSilva

    That's equivalent to about 2272 FIDE according to dudeski_robinson's conversion formula (FIDE Rating = 187 + Lichess Classical Rating X 0.38 + Lichess Blitz Rating X 0.48).

    Not too shabby for a 60-year-old, considering that Mirko Rujevic is the top player on the ACF senior list at 2197.

    And it looks like Mirko's replacement has a 45-point buffer against the next serious entrant (Guy West in September)!

    Darryl (turning 60 in February) might be a tougher challenge, however.

    We should also consider that Mirko is not just over 60 but turning 72 this year. And Doug Hamilton is turning 77 or 78...

    My take: Willy Hendriksī"Move first, think later" (the book title).
    Sure, I know it's a pretty good book, thought provoking, fantastic selection of positions and really good practical advice. But if you're a coach and you've got a class full of people, when you tell them to think before they move, there will always be someone who's read about this book and challenge your advice!

    When teaching I would draw the analogy with marriage - marry in haste and regret in leisure
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land
