Sep-15-06  RookFile: I actually knew the player of the black pieces. He went to Boston University, but I lost touch with him. It's great he got to play Karpov.
Sep-15-06  RookFile: Black used to like to open his games with white with 1. b4. Always lead to interesting games.

  WannaBe: <keypusher> should be called Ofiesh & Chips Attack.
Oct-20-06  AOfiesh: Hey RookFile, this is Andy. Who are you? Sorry we fell out of contact. I don't remember many people from my chess life. I can't believe people are still interested in this game with Karpov, um I mean Karpov's game with me. It was an honor to have him play so brilliantly against me. I remember when he sacrificed the knight, he was about to make a different move in under a second like all the others, then he pulled his hand back and thought for about a minute. A handful of kibitzers came over for a look, and I thought "uh oh, this isn't good".

I quit playing about year after that game. I realized that I hated losing more than I liked winning.
