|Feb-01-09|| ||LaFreak II: Wesley So is Champion in Corus C|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Bluevertere: So drew his game against Howell. Fighting spirit goes ashtray when there is the bait of a 1st place.|
That's the main reason so many people love Fischer, he had compromised only with his own illusions.
|Feb-01-09|| ||timhortons: CHEERS WESLEY!

Corus now, aeroflot next!
|Feb-01-09|| ||timhortons: fischer did become carefull when he knew he had beatin spassky by the numbers and already sure of his world championship title, the last of his games against spassky in 72 match are drawn.|
now thats a calculated move from a thinking master.review the profile of the prodigy.
|Feb-01-09|| ||timhortons: the same reason wesley drew these game, why take chances?|

|Feb-01-09|| ||shintaro go: <Howell will be out to beat So tomorrow, no question.> I just love it when people eat their words. Wesley is the real thing.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||shintaro go: <Fighting spirit goes ashtray when there is the bait of a 1st place.> Yah, the same fighting spirit Dominguez showed against Sergey. Oh and what happened to Dominguez? Right, 5 black wins is not showing fighting spirit.|

Also, young Anish Giri had a fine showing, and can look forward to a great future in the chess arena.
Last, but not least, congratulations to the "old" warrior Tiger for the fighting spirit he shows in every game he plays.
