    Just looking at ICU website , top article is about junior competition in sterling scotland , dunno why this competition is not held in London where kids and family can enjoy wide range of tourist activities while not playing chess instead of deciphering scottish accent ? .

    Drogheda congress report , which can fit on the back of a postage stamp is wrong about whose results stands above the rest in the competition , it is CARL JACKSON.

    The acting in blindfold video of blitz game between ex icu chairman and irelands only gm 5 minutes vs 6 minutes is so fake ,

  2. shahram says:

    Yes , tomorrow I will send couple of annotated games from my recent Drogheda tournament including one with colm daly ( where I threw away a winning game )to be posted here for educational purposes so people can learn some chess stuff. Drogheda tournament was nice and so were the organizers .It would be nice after I have made the effort of posting these games , at least couple of people make an effort thanking me here and not like the last time when it was like silence of the lambs.I tell you I am done posting games here for a very long time , dunno why others don’t do it.

    Going to elm mount tomorrow to play branagan , please let my opponent know I’ll be late as I finish work at 7 pm in ranelagh and also that I am not in a mood to lose tomorrow after Drogheda debacle , I have emailed my games to michael , where is branagan result page ? .Its sad that in internet age people have to wait days and sometimes weeks to find where they and others stand in the league and cup games , due to lack of a proper and prompt reporting structure.

  4. shahram says:

    Yes . 7 pm is late finishing work , hoping to change that to 6:30 pm in future.

  5. shahram says:

    The article on icu about GM baburin upcoming blindfold simuli is so MISLEADING .First the title of irelands best player can be disputed , sam collins is rated higher than baburin and also baburin is not the current irish champion. second , the article states he will be playing against 16 of ireland’s BEST chest players , again another misleading quote ,I doubt that will happen .
    Players are asked to dressed formally as this event is held in the remembrance of chess master zukertort visit to Dublin 135 years ago and supposed to be a re-enactment , then why there are 16 players playing and not 12 as zukertort did ? , you don’t do re-enactment & try to honour someone by upstaging them .

    P.S please note I have great respect for gm baburin and would be amazing if he can play blindfold against 16 players , I am just saying

    here is icu article

    YES ! . ICU will vote for kasparov and NOT the evil kirsan. I am happy even though kirsan will very likely win the vote at the end ,same way Qatar won the 2022 fifa world cup by buying votes with $$$$ ! .
