Correct. Though please stop telling me I hold views that I actually don't. I am not a rabid free marketeer, for example.
You have me at a disadvantage, I told the forum what I used to do for a living, you have not told the forum, what you did/do for a living, I would guess you did not (/do for a living), empty dustbins to earn a crust?

Watch the first half of series 6 and loved it although hard to believe Nigel was ever that young!

I have that problem, but in the opposite direction!

I watched Nigel play that Master Game series when he was about 15 and I was about 10. It hugely encouraged me to play chess: he was beating the "grown-up" grandmasters and I was at a club with few kids, playing (and beating!) the grown-ups too :-)

In my mind, he's still that age, even when I see him today ;-)

Do we have an update on when further series of the Master game will be out? When they put out 6 & 7 I thought great they will release two DVDs a year until they are all out, but its been well over that now and all seems quiet on the western front. I too now know the series 6 & 7 games and commentary by heart :lol:

What is even worse, the snippets of earlier series you can find online have all since been removed from Youtube, presumably not to interfere with DVD sales.

I wonder if sales wern't good enough (prices were / are quite high) and that's going to be that :(

I did happen to see your reply Stewart, thank you.

For some reason though it had been transferred to this topic http://www.ecforum.org.uk/viewtopic.php ... nd#p155156 on the grounds that it had nothing to do with the Master Game!
