Can't make money with playing chess when you are older than 45. So you should earn as much money as possible when you are young.


Don't know about chlld labor. Fisher, Michael Jackson being bad examples.

Re: Why are chess computers no longer important?

I remember I was even thinking I was in zugzwang.
