Dr. Mark Ginsburg offers a wonderful history of stacked teams at the U.S. Amateur Team East (see "The Fabulous 00s: Curing the GGGg Debacle at the US Amateur Team East 2008"). That history includes his own winning teams, one of which instigated the original anti-stacking rule in effect after 1994 for the four-team playoffs (that is, until the famous "Karpov exception"). Ginsburg writes of his 1994 team with Ilya Gurevich, Victor Frias, himself, and "the requisite low-rated kids": "What a trio of scum-sucking stacked opportunists. It was Karmic revenge that we forfeited in the playoffs after Frias pulled a no-show in our first match versus the South."
Though I'm not sure I like Ginsburg's "competency test" solution (to disqualify teams where the bottom board can't even put together one non-forfeit, non-bribed point), it's really wonderful to hear a famous reformed USATE team stacker discuss the GGGg case with the brilliant insight that only he can provide!
I always enjoy Ginsburg's nostalgic chess blog, which offers more proof that those who do not know chess history are doomed to repeat it. As for Steve Doyle: what's his excuse?
