  Robin01: Nakamura sure plays some exciting chess.
Apr-27-05  roni.chessman: I wish there was an arranged head on match between Nakamura and Radjabov. Nakamura's match against Karjakin was purely uneven.
Apr-27-05  roni.chessman: Nakamura is fierce I have to agree...haha

In the future, Nakamura will be a Bobby Fischer candidate while Radjabov will be Karpov :(

May-04-05  Volmac: Lots of pictures can be found at http://www.ksu.dk/sigeman/pictures....
May-04-05  arifattar: See the last pic. Sasikaran in a suit and sneakers (trainers/joggers). So is his opponent I think.

There are far worse things in the history of chess than to be the stature of Karpov.
