  Penguincw: Le might as well just play for rating points now (draw ones higher than you, beat ones lower than you), with 2.5/6, the leader Korobov has 5/6. which is only a theoretical chance.

Feb-12-12  MORPHYEUS: Robson is showing why he will be a worthy room-mate to Wesley.

Guy is a chessaholic. He works on his chess tirelessly. It'll rub off on Wesley.
