  PhilFeeley: After day 1, Pia Cramling in the lead! Wouldn't it be neat if she won, to go with the other Old Guy winning the rapid.

  Sokrates: Congratulations to the true world champions, Hou Yifan and the Muzychuk sisters who bravely stayed out of this fake championship. None of the women here are worthy of any title.
Jan-08-18  dumbgai: <Sokrates> is right.
Jan-09-18  JimNorCal: one eighty
