Nov-04-10  Bobsterman3000: Changing Wesley's name to So-So due to his mediocre results as of late...
Nov-04-10  rapidcitychess: Hmmm...

Is the sponsor Old Spice?? I suppose, because So and Robson are still in their teens, and try to smell good all the time...

:)

Nov-04-10  SetNoEscapeOn: Wow, Meir taking out both Onischuk and So and leading.

Look out, you may not like what you're calling to your self. Just saying... :)

What about this

<Bobsterman3000> = <BOBsterman3000> = <BOBOsterman3000>?

i don't like that either . . . .

  WinKing: <rapidcitychess: Hmmm...

lol...no I think this is one of Susan Polgar's tournaments. SPICE is the program she works with & is about education & a lot more. All for a good cause.

Nov-06-10  unsound: Perelshteyn just blundered a piece against Robson with his 13th move (ouch), so it looks like Ray will avoid the cellar.
Nov-06-10  technical draw: <Is the sponsor Old Spice??>

No, I think the tournament is being played in the Spice islands.

Nov-07-10  rapidcitychess: <td> <WinKing>

What's up with you guys???

SPICE obviously stands for "Super Popular Inhabitable Carpet Elephants"

Sigh. Some people.

Can't blame the nice kid on his recent performances. His losses and 'So-so' showings as of late are just being magnified by the way he's over-hyped by the 'So'-called 'barangay', who really a lot of them seriously needs to get a life and some class. I think the 'barangay' are just doing him more harm than good. Given a choice I'm almost certain Wesley would rather operate silently than being over-hyped unnecessarily and unreasonably.

Good luck kiddo - If you always DO, What you've always DONE, You'll always GET, What you've always GOTTEN! Time to do some CHANGES ! And maybe, just maybe 2700 is not unreachable for you after all. Wish you best !

Nov-08-10  richardhanes: Very good job Onischuk by the way - I know you gonna get this one !
Nov-09-10  FISCHERboy: SO are they called 'Spice Boys?'

<richard> Yes, and this so-called barangay would even enjoy eating, talking, playing with him; give him small gifts, etc. I mean, what good could that serve? And yes, the kid has no choice like us natural human beings with free will!

Good thing enlightened individuals like you are out to give your wonderful insights!
