This site is mostly about chess. Chess players–past and present–chess politics, chess humour, chess nonsense and whatever else I can think of!  The good, the bad and the ugly!  Feel free to contact me at  spraggettblog@yahoo.com     The pictures exhibited on this blog are not mine; if you own the copyright then let me know and I will remove it!

  1. Hi Kevin – Interesting blog! I interviewed you for the Star in Hamilton in 1994. Good times! One of my photos got onto reddit and you’re using on your blog https://kevinspraggettonchess.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/how-good-is-your-quebecois/ – since it wasn’t linked back to my page, people think this photo was taken in Quebec – it’s actually in Cornwall, Ontario, and the phrase is used here in French and English – I was wondering if you could put a link back to my page where I explain it here: http://markbellis.blogspot.ca/2009/09/call-in-bin.html !

  2. Mr. Kevin Spraggett, I love love love your web site. I look at it almost everyday. CHess+naked women+coffee-CCF! Yeah-HOO! On this sad morning (LR rip and much love to Ms. L. Anderson) I’ll simply say a prayer: “shanti shanti shanti”. Or as yr fellow Canadian said, “Long my You run.”–Scot Morison ps pawn to king 4.

  3. Good afternoon Kevin
    I have long enjoyed your site

    attached is a picture I came across (St Petersburg, 1924)
    I was particularly impressed with the number of spectators in attendance at the chess event. Kind of viewership that puts the recent World Championships to shame
