U31 junior event
I think it is good to have more categories and good to try not to lose people in the late 20s. From a selfish POV I do note that they keep pushing back the senior age and now increasing the Junior age, am I destined to never be either? I ...
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
Yeah, I pop in on the table with the most kibitzers (occasionally check the top 3-5), and generally that's all it takes to find the voice. It is nearly always the table with the most kibitzers.

For Frank Stewart
It is basically 20 years ago now for me, but I found Boston very easy to navigate as a pedestrian around cars. The rule of thumb was the pedestrian has right of way unless and until you make eye contact, at which point the car has right of way. An ...
