Re: Women's Candidates matches

Two draws again today. Lagno seems to have let slip a sizeable but not winning advantage.

Re: End of an era

Well, I guess because it's an internet forum, and one based on the ongoing adventures of a contemporary individual, and hence for that reason occasionally it is revived. You could have a new thread the next time Ray did anything dubious - which would be the next time he did anything - but it is orga...

Has it? A consensus? I would not have said so.
