    I really don't know. My guess would be that the sober, classic-game with clocks, over the board type game with 90 minute time controls would be about 1800-1900. I got a USCF membership in order to...

    I'm curious, too. Laws that give standing to random 'consumers' to bring $10k litigation bombs into someone's life that could be construed as censorship-bullying are unwise.

    Not curious enough to...

    This is politics.

    Yeah, they are profit-seekers and need to be culturally compatible with their customers.

    As long as the best parts of the sport remain intact and the distractions can be muted, I'll watch.

    This discussion is pure politics, right? Or is it just me?

    Maybe we could move this thread to P&R?

    I just can't get worked up about this, personally. Everyone has their own choice to make. Sometimes it's hard--even unwise--to trust those in authority who appear deceptive or may have hidden...

    I'd say Morphy has the rep of being the best yolo attacker with great instincts. But that was a while ago and modern players would likely find what today's computer engines see as holes or mistakes...

    Morphy was actually who I was thinking of, not Capablanca. Although Capablanca was a bit of a renegade too. But Morphy...talk about legend.
