Tommaso Dorigo must have a good life: he's an experimental particle physicist, and he plays chess! Tomasso is a veteran of the Chicago Industrial Chess League, having played for Fermilab.
Will the "God particle," the Higgs boson, be unveiled later this week? Dorigo is pessimistic. (More here.) Are there baryons to be discovered? You bet.
And does Tommaso have any good ideas for the White side of the Catalan?
