|Jul-01-09|| ||Knight13: More like a "Who The Heck Are These People?" tournament!!|
|Jul-01-09|| ||brucejavier: look like a big 1st prize of $100.00 dollares, 2nd probaly $50 and no 3rd prize due to lack of funds...|

Well surely you know who Gormally is? He's the guy who punched Aronian.
|Jul-01-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: If this were a cage fighting tournament, I'd pick Gormally. But this is a chess tournament, so who knows?|
Better yet, who cares? :)
|Jul-02-09|| ||kellmano: They're all famous to me as an Englishman. Who the heck are you lot? :-)|
Well, ok, not all famous.
|Jul-03-09|| ||kramputz: Daniel Gormally vs. Rustam Kamsky would be a very exciting match. Let these two arrogant bullies "duke it out".|
|Jul-04-09|| ||Domdaniel: And they're all familiar to me as a non-Englishman. At least they don't have those dull 2700+ ratings that so often produce chess yawns.|

Winner earns the right to a bout with Danailov?
|Jul-04-09|| ||Domdaniel: Settle down, class. You *know* chess will never get proper media attention unless grandmasters are punching one another over pawning rights to beautiful women.|
Sad, but ... sad.
|Jul-04-09|| ||WhiteRook48: poor name for a tournament|
|Jul-06-09|| ||Don Cossacks: Slavic domination continues!|
|Jul-15-09|| ||HeMateMe: Any Brits out there? The big Slick tournament looks a bit lite on postings; quite a bit of competition from the other big events.|
I was interested in something in the news the other day, about the paper "News of the World." It seems one or more reporters are in hot water for somehow bugging or tapping the phone lines of individuals, in order to get inside news information. Accross the pond, we threw out a president over this, take it very serioulsy. Is this type of thing common place in the U.k. media? It seems like a serious thing, how wide spread and prevelant might this be?
Here, there is some debate on how far our homeland security (that might be your Mi-5, Mi-6, and other Mis, all rolled into one) is allowed to go in tapping suspected terrorists, but any reporter doing this would be nailed to the cross, PDQ.
