I live in Sydney, Australia. I play club chess, and have a rating that is stubbornly stuck in the 1300s (like my wife, it obdurately refuses to acknowledge my genius ;-)

hdcc: "Oh, Monday, Monday, how could you leave and not take me?"

hdcc: The first thirty seven moves played themselves; perhaps by the time we get to "insane" this week there'll be something a tad more challenging.

hdcc: <HeHateMe> "Fischer was probably gifted a few $thousand dollars to do this [...] " It's far more likely that he was given a few $thousand dollars...

hdcc: Once again we see that the queen is good in the sac.
