Here is the only truth:  "We are the pawns of the mysterious game of chess played by God,  who moves us,  stops us,  shifts us ahead,  and soon picks us up one after the other and gathers us in the same box of  Nothing."

"Chess grips its exponent, shackling the mind and brain so that the inner freedom and independence of even the strongest character cannot remain unaffected."  Albert Einstein
"Imagination does not breed insanity. Exactly what does breed insanity is reason.  Poets do not go mad;  but chess-players do".
—Chesterton, The Maniac (1908).

Fuerstman Leads Top; Kliber "A"; Wheeless "B"; Eerenberg "C"; Alexander Lower Section of Seafarer II
Charlotte, NC 9-10-08:  A slightly weaker turnout of 11 very comfortable and well fed mental jousters continued to defy the boycott and reported to this well appointed banquet hall more commonly known as the Seafarer (Just look for the 3-D Whale!) where they enjoyed a delicious dinner prior to and during Rd:4 of Seafarer II. (In order to placate the management, the time control has been changed to Game 60! so we can be out by 10:00pm! This will allow more young players and early risers to participate). In the Top Section, the CCC's #6 player, the pride of Mint Hill, NM Leland "Ennui" Fuerstman (2000) employed the Budapest Defense against the CCC's #3 player Expert Dr. Vladimir Tkatchouk (2084) but faltered in the end (See Game 0755). Despite the loss, Fuerstman still leads with 2.5-1.5. In addition, proving to the crowd that he is no mouse, Michael "Bolton" Kliber (1989) split the point with NCCA President the Honorable Charles R. "Randy" Wheeless (1664). In the "B" Section, Wheeless leads with 2.5-.5. In the "C" Section, Nathaniel "E's" Eerenberg (1486) beat down Charles "Tenor" Carerros (1168) to lead with 2-1. In the Lower Section, Michael Alexander (1395) squeeked by Hassan Hashemloo (1048) to lead with 4-0. Other Lower Section winners were: Lee Moore. See "Current Crosstable" for complete results. (The facility was great! Everybody was happy! We hope more players join us next week for G60! -
