I will be spending the next few days in sunny Parsippany, NJ, participating in the annual chess extravaganza known as the World Amateur Team Chess Championship. I'm mostly retired from tournament play these days, too stressful, but I always poke up my head to push the wood at this one. I get to see a lot of old friends, and with 1500+ players it is an event not to be missed.
Monday Math will get the week off, in honor of the fact that my poor students have a test next week.
IBM watson won jeopardy, how about IBM Deep Blue in Chess ?
Yes, but will the chess in Parsippany be played parsimoniously?
chess tournament, but still enough that I do not think the primary.
