    Anyone watch Queen's Gambit? It's a pretty good show. I like how Garry Kasparov was an adviser, he's a grandmaster who was a former world champion. Anyway the games are set up pretty nicely. Mentions a lot of the typical openings and gets more exotic as the show progresses. There's some good...

    Continental Pure Contact

    Anyone ever use the Continental Pure Contacts? Thinking of getting a set from, they seem to have pretty good pricing and free shipping. I think DWS06 are also preferred, but I think the Pure Contacts will have longer tread life.
