Stevenson Cup

Hastings travelled to the Rochester  still very much in contention for a semi-final place however things did not go to plan and we  went three nil down however a good fight back  by Gary Wilson  Howard tebbs  and Jim Wheeler  managed to secure the draw which keeps us in contention with our last match being against bottom of the table  wok our rivals for the semi final place  have  to  play top of the table Tunbridge Wells and the wok a win in our last match at a loss of Maidstone in one of their last two will secure  a semi-final place

Quote

I may be an old lion, but I can still bite someone’s hand off if he puts it in my mouth

(attributed to Steinitz and quoted after Korchnoi defeated Caruana in 2011)

Quote

Nowadays I just play my moves quickly. I don’t think that thinking helps a lot….ninety percent of the time my instinct should be right.

(Speelman in British Chess Magazine)

Quote

If you don’t try to win so quickly you win more games… There’s quite strong repulsion from a win. If you go too directly towards it, it often makes it very difficult.

(Speelman in British Chess Magazine)

Quote

Of course, analysis can sometimes give more accurate results than intuition but usually it’s just a lot of work. I normally do what my intuition tells me to do. Most of the time spent thinking is just to double-check.

(Carlsen)

Quote

… I think I would beat Tal pretty easily. Fischer would be more difficult, but I think I could beat him too.

(Magnus Carlsen in The Telegraph)
