"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!" Game Collection: Lékó - Fireless and Boring?

Are you a player desperately in search for a system against 1.e4? Don't worry, friend, help is here. Finally, an easy and solid Black repertoire is available for everybody - the ultimate Owen Defense collection is complete and finished! Game Collection: Owen Defense

  chessgames.com: <exactly 1 higher than some number n that is the xth number in the sequence (2, 2+6, 2+6+10, 2+6+10+14, ...)>

Positively brilliant. Well done.

<It's possible that there are still bugs with the Lab because it's so new>

There is definitely a bug that we hope to iron out before Christmas.

15 seconds/move means at *least* 15s/move — it switches to 2 minutes/move (1 min/ply) when it thinks it finds something "important" (for lack of a better term). The bug is that it's finding importance where it really shouldn't be. We need to temper it down a bit so it really does speed through most plies at 7.5s as advertised.

  Penguincw: Hello <SwitchingQuylthulg>. Hope you're not too tired from delivering all those gifts. You know, the population always increases each year, so that's more and more kids.

I see why you always rush to get to 5 clues. So you can have more times to prepare for this big journey. ;)

Anyway, hope you get to spend some time with Mrs. Klaus, the elves, the reindeers, and the rest of your family. Hope your health is good as well.

Good luck in the upcoming Championship Leg, and of course, good luck in my upcoming bracket challenge for the World Juniors'.

As for your hockey comment on my forum, I have replied there.
