Sean... firstly I'm intrigued that you still seem to be located in Gibraltar. Did you miss the plane home this year? Or are you using it as a tax haven?

Collective term for arbiters... you are inviting us to live dangerously with this one, aren't you? If we are too rude, it could be last time we get to play congress chess, or all our opponent's draw claims under 10.2 will be granted even when we are a queen and two rooks up.

I'm going to avoid all the obvious references to avoirdupois (or the eating of pies) and suggest an intransigence of arbiters. No... it's no good... having said that I was going to avoid the obvious, I cannot resist a corpulence of arbiters. Fine body of men, erf erf.

Ah well, that's my chess career over.

A thousand apologies [tugs at forelock and bows!]

An email correspondent has suggested an 'argument' of arbiters!

Of course, if he had suggested locking them in a room with a bunch of arbiters.............!!!


Given the size of most of the UK's leading arbiters, it would have to be a bloody big room, Sean!

Just imagine it...

I'm sure all the portly arbiters would soon devise a whole new set of regulations for room inhabitence.

Maybe to start off with... all room inhabitants must submit to the all knowing power of the arbiter...

You might very well say that, I couldn't possibly comment!

Given the profession from which so many of Britain's leading arbiters tend to be drawn, how about a "school" of arbiters?

Thanks for the image of the local arbitters all wearing sumo nappies!

And at tea-time too.
