May-24-06  orio24: Yeah, Kruppa is the strongest player I have ever beaten. Maybe that game could serve as an example that even if you are much weaker player, and if you are lucky you have a chance.

  WannaBe: Dang it, if I had paid more attention to the Open Section's list at the National Open, I'd come up and said hello! =(
Jul-17-06  whiskeyrebel: WannaBe, I was paired with Peter and mentioned to him. He turned out to be an incredibly friendly guy. Well, he was friendly up until the game began. He destroyed me in 27 quickest loss of the event. Thanks Peter..for giving me an extra long break between games to hang out at the pool. Seriously, Mr. Z is a cool guy..and some of his games were very interesting (including a slug fest with Friedel I was lucky enough to be sitting next to).

  WannaBe: <whiskeyrebel> That's because Peter didn't want to be another Upset Victim Notch on your belt. =)

I see from USCF web site, he mostly plays in San Francisco area. There is yet a chance that I'll return there for an upcoming business trip.

Maybe I'll go by the Mechanics Institute to see if I can catch him there.

Jul-18-06  orio24: Guys, Thank you very much for your very kind words.

<whiskeyrebel>: It was a very nice to meet you and to talk to you. I was just the lucky one in our game. You are a very nice guy. Btw., my non-chess friends were very much excited by your knight tattoo on your forearm.

<WannaBe>: From your other posts I also found out you were in Vegas too. Let's say hello to each other next time.
