his opponents did not wash their hands before the game?
|Apr-26-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: A White supremacist, obviously. Adores birds.|
|Apr-29-14|| ||perfidious: One could have asked that question of the late Claude Frizzel Bloodgood: 63 games at CG, and he played Black in two of them, compiling a winning percentage which was beyond Goldsbyesque.|

Good old Claude was once no.2 in the US rating (behind Kamsky if I remember correctly). Our floridean friend is struggling to become no.2 at books a million.

|Apr-29-14|| ||TheFocus: And just how big is this place? I have 5,000 books and barely have enough room for them.|
How much space would a Million books take up?
|Apr-29-14|| ||TheFocus: I could just be cynical, but I doubt they have a million books.|
I feel that this is false advertising.
|Apr-29-14|| ||john barleycorn: 1000000 is binary.|

If you play Birds as black,
its the Dutch, or worse.
|Apr-29-14|| ||Granny O Doul: Maybe he just forfeits when he gets assigned Black. Good for the rating, though it makes titles norms tough to achieve.|
|Apr-29-14|| ||perfidious: It would be a trivial matter, though, to create an event, as Zurab Azmaiparashvili is known to have done.|

His name does look like it is pronounced Birdseed.
