    ER from World Champ thread: Talking about preparation … Magnus started with 1:40 on his clock and now after 12moves his time is 1:45

    AC: this is what I hate about increment time. The game does not wind down the so the superior player cannot take use of his superiority of time so the better player can get cheated out of his win or forced to play extra time instead of resting for next game or watching Board 1.
    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

    Actually the same sorts of players who are hopeless time managers under guillotine often turn into increment junkies, which makes it easy to beat them if you can keep the position complicated (sometimes they will lose on time even with the increment.)

    Wondering if anyone can tell me a fair price for all bound volumes of Purdy's Chess World from 1946 - 1967 inclusive? I'm told they're hard to come by as a complete set ....

    Thanks.
