Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: i think that Guy West is actually a member of this website!
Oct-18-05  Runemaster: Which member?
Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: well i think he has named himself Guy West :)
Oct-19-05  Runemaster: But according to his profile under that name, Guy West hasn't posted since last year and he only posted a few times anyway, so we can't assume that he's still a member.

I thought you were going to tell us that <Hayton3> was really Guy West or some other scoop like that! But then again, we all know that <Hatin'> is really <WMD> with a New Zealand accent and a bigger thesaurus (just joking, guys).

Oct-19-05  hayton3: I don't think <WMD> would approve of comments regarding the size of his thesaurus.
Oct-20-05  Runemaster: Quite right - let's not get competitive, boys. We all know that size doesn't count.
Oct-20-05  Norman Glaides: I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
Nov-01-05  Guy West: Yes, I am a member. Just haven't been on here for a while :-)

Cheers, Guy.

Nov-01-05  suenteus po 147: <IM West> Welcome back to the site. If you email the administrators, I'm sure they would be happy to upload more of your games (provided you have the scores) with your annotations, or even hook you up with a free premium membership.

  IMlday: Hi Guy,
As I recall we played at Islington, 1980, the strongest weekend Swiss I've ever encountered~last event of the British Grand Prix. A game I would have liked to sit in on the post-mortem was G West vs A S Segal, 1982 Forewarned (?) Segal switched to 1.e4 Nf6 against me at Dubai '86. Belated congrats on your IM title! :-)
Dec-05-05  alexandrovm: <Guy West: Yes, I am a member...> it's really great to have you here, see ya...
