And a great one at that.

Even though I haven't played it for about ten years, I still remember the cheat codes.

  DarthStapler: Duke Nukem Forever is finally going to come out
Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: he does have a cool name & he beat kupreichik & got draws vs kasparov, karpov & bronstein, & became a GM so he definitely knows what he's doing. unfortunately it looks like he has retired b/c their aren't any games in the database after 2007. he also won the 2007 European Senior Championship so he should still compete in it. he would probably still be a threat to win it! the last games of his in the cg database r from that tourney so i guess he wanted to end his career on a good note.

  waustad: He played in a rapid tournament as recently as March 2015. It was his first rated play in about 2 years.
