  FSR: <wordfunph> He absolutely annihilated me (one of my two losses) in the 1997 USCF Absolute Correspondence Chess Championship. The bastard! Oddly, he drew all the rest of his games! This was the closest anyone has ever come, in the history of the Absolute Championship, to drawing all of his games. If only I'd known he was going to do that, I would have been happy to make his drawing record a perfect one.

  FSR: Sorry, I am wrong. Barbre did indeed annihilate me, but he tied for first in that tournament. My other loss was to David E Burris, who did indeed draw all the rest of his games.
