We give an account of the short-range RVB liquid phase on the triangular lattice, starting from an elementary introduction to quantum dimer models, including details of the overlap expansion used to generate them. The fate of its topological degeneracy under duality is discussed, as well as recent developments and its possible relevance for quantum computing.
