I remember playing 4th board for Princeton University when we came in 2nd place at the U.S. Amateur Open in the College Team division. Ken is always quite sagacious about chess, and life in general. It is indeed sad that some players cheat, since that really defeats the purpose of the game, which is mental self-improvement and discipline. I'm glad that some attention is being spent on this problem. On the other hand, I would like to see human players exceeding the levels of top computer play, which I do think is entirely possible, especially if there is more training at an early age with computer programs. I might be wrong, but I think human potential still exceeds computers. The key question is how to unleash that potential.
