Things that adversely affect my chess: 1. attention seeking kids 2. one manic cat 3. too much wine and now 4. Game of Thrones (sigh)
UPDATE: Well, my cat was run over, GoT seems to have taken a back seat, but the kids just get noisier and noisier.
At last, some form of success: tell Tomato grid 434235
I put in this command: "+notify &GM" - little did I realise how many GMs there are who visit this site. Very impressive.
Thanks The Weasel for showing me this: http://tb7.chessok.com/articles/Top8DTM_eng - completely bamboozling!
Salute to my old friends SamBeckett and Johny-Moth. If you guys ever return to ICC, drop me a line. t tomato grid 209400
Autobot, old friend, so many remember you from here - I see notes in your honour everywhere. Rest in Peace, Champ.
