Chess, news, potpourri and other utter nonsense!
Thursday round up
Paul Morphy RIP
Better late news than no news! Paul Morphy died on Thursday July 10, 1884. According to the calculations of PLANETCALC that makes it exactly 48,496 days ago. That is a LONG time. One hundred and 32 years, 9 months and 10 days. My condolences to surviving family members…

(1) Chess keeps us young in spirit!
(2) Chess keeps our mind alert and sharp!
(3) Chess is fun for the whole family!
