User: The Caissars

________________________________________________- ____________________________________

Hi, my name is Greg & I have been playing chess for over 50 years. Between the years 1968 & 1990 I was quite active. I was a member of the USCF, CCA(Cleveland Chess Association),Parma Chess Club(south of Cleveland) & captained the Gilmour Academy(Gates Mills,Ohio) chess team 1970 till 1972 when I graduated. My rating during those years(1968-90) fluctuated between 1750 to 1950. Played in the State Championship (OCC-Ohio Chess Congress) a couple of times in the 1980's with modest results (+1,-3,=2 first time & +2,-2,=2 second time). I might have done better but my style is aggressive & it often cost me points in tournaments. Since 1990 I stopped playing competitive chess & still enjoy playing but only casually. My strong suit has always been the analyses of games. I have always had a passion for the game & still do.

Dec-28-17  minasina: Here chessgames.com chessforum is the following message:

<WinKing: Present Hunt Solvers ... AnimusEtOblivio (5) - clue #'s 1, 8, 40, 46, 63 (5th to 5)

martin1456 (5) - clue #'s 28, 43, 48, 61, 62 (6th to 5)>

Clue number 62 is before 63. So fifth and sixth solver are in wrong order.
