The big uproar: where’s your popcorn?
Chess is not most people’s cup o’ tea: it’s simply too hard because it requires deep thought and lots of energy. So do I give a flying flamingo if nobody reads this? I do NOT! This means war! On 5th September 2022 Magnus Carlsen suddenly quite from a tournament whenRead More
This is not an academic exploration of what manipulation means. Read that again. You don’t get a ‘balanced perspective’. You get unbalanced originality. If you don’t like that bugger off now!
