I remember Gary Kasparov saying he was a chess player when asked about FRC. I took that to mean he wasn't interested in FRC.
Maybe it meant he was!

But btw, he just now made a bad start in a tournament, after taking a break from chess tournaments for a few weeks. It certainly doesn't mean he's starting to go down ye...

Re: They caught igors rausis?!!!

It's enough to be
1). Allowable in public opinion
2). Allowable in the press
3). Allowable to make investigations.
4). Can be used in court corruptly even if not officially allowed.allowed.

I think it will be very good hardware for stockfish at the half price of intel's cpus (500$ compared to 1100$). There 16-core version will not come out until septme...
