Hi Austin,

A few things struck me as interesting.

The 7 piece tablebase debate; and also removing the word "should" from the playing rules...
The other thing which caught my eye was the elimination of gender or age based tournaments.

This kind of stuff has the "potential," at least, of causing controversy.

On the old TCCMB, just those 3 items alone would have generated about 500-1000 postings.  ;)

Thanks for posting the link...

John
