The Dark Lake

The Dark Lake

Jul 9, 2012, 5:48 PM |


This week I am starting a new theme week: The Anthea Carson Week.

I figured that I may need a backup, as Tim Brennan is getting out of control.  He has been doing my Tim Brennan Week for 7 years, but I just don't know how I can keep him on anymore.

You can read about his latest antics in this quarter's Colorado Chess Informant in the article titled Wise Beyond Her Years that I just added to my links section (top link takes you directly to the correct page of the pdf file):

He just goes off on me after I calmly and rationally present the case that chess players should resign gracefully, like I do in every one of my games.

Peace be with you,

Paul Anderson
