Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-31-08  cheski: Is this the chap that is playing in Hastings right this minute? In the top four and amongst the GM's?

Dec-31-08  cheski: It does surprise me that I can't find a page for the Hastings tournament. The more so as there is a game going on with a differential of nearly 400 rating points, where the young Karl Mcphillips from Ireland is holding his own against GM Howell.

An very interesting game at that.
