Left the following message for JulesT: Thank you. You are a gentleman. Rare these days in the chess world.
tell Vish0089 Anand Sucks. tell Vish0089 Anand should retire. After 1-0 Wino vs Vish2000. Wish2000 "Perhaps."
Quit Tournament Chess as of May 2019. Will only play online, follow top tournaments online, play in the occational one-day Active and Blitz Tournament. Never to play in a real tournament again. Sick of what the game has become about.
