Quotes Of The Day (from Kelly Atkins)

"Alexander Alekhine may have been a drunk and anti-Semite, but he certainly had manners: he showed up for the last game of his losing match in 1935 wearing a tuxedo, and gave his "Hurrah to the new World Champion!" Alex Yermolinsky

"The point is that chess doesn't have a strict criterion of correctness. Chess is a multiform game!" Bent Larsen
