Thanks Rob for the information, I have a brother named John but he is not a chess player, I should have known it was a Division One Team as you don't get such an impressive looking trophy in Division Two! : )

I never knew about clicking left and right.

This is super fun. The other lad is my great friend Johnny Marr who
has sadly past away. How apt that he should be there, he taught me
99% of what I know about the game and was a constant source of encouragement.

I see if you click left on yours you turn into two girls playing chess on a mat.

Going to spend the whole doing this plucking names at random.

Have phoned in for a sickie so I can listen to BBC 2's all day coverage
of the Beatles 'Please Please Me' 50 year tribute. (my first LP.)
Johnny had a great name Geoff, could of played with the Beatles by the sound of it! Was that photo taken on his birthday?

I am morphing into all beings it seems!

Ah! The Beatles, Liverpools own, I can still recall in the early sixties running up and down the road with my Black plastic "Paul McCartney Beatle wig" on singing "she loves you yeah yeah yeah! must of drove the neighbours potty! :lol:

What shall we do - sue them. Let's go for a cease and desist order and when they don't comply, we could send the bailiffs into Bulgaria :lol:

By the way, I am a bit disappointed they couldn't even find a human for my picture but instead there's a park with a chessplayer or two.

I am an Astronaut playing chess in space!
I'm calling the Lynx marketing team right away!! Nothing beats an Astronaut, especially one playing chess whilst space-walking.
I am a God mwahahaha.

Calm down Greg - click left a couple of times and you are a row of dusty old volumes.

If you are a world famous author, you get to publicise your books.

Roger, your pic won't load. I rather expected the Giddins version - which he might have worked out by now after the 22 reps isn't funny.

Of course, it would still be funny were it not for the ECF membership scheme. :wink:

If you left click, you get a picture of Simon Williams. The indistinct one against a window looks like the start of the last round against Keith Arkell last year at the Beacon Hotel in Exmouth. The original would have been on the keverel site. I don't recall where the others came from.
